Whenever you are looking at buying alternatives, you have to check the nutritional information on EVERYTHING. I have posted here a few times what the guidelines are:
under 200 calories per serving
less than 30% total calories from fat (take the calories from fat, multiply by 3 - if it's lower than the total calories you're fine)
Less than 17g NET carbs (subtract Dietary fiber from total carbs)
8g or less NET carbs = unrestricted
9g to 15g NET carbs = restricted (once per day only)
15g to 17g NET carbs = super restricted (twice a week only)
at least 12g protein
This is a little bit more detailed than the above chart.
In another post (somewhere) Scorbett mentioned her info is a cut & paste & info was inadvertently left off.
The under 200 calories is for restricteds.
The graphic is more accurate for nonrestricteds (usually 90-120 ish)
