South Beach Diet - Phase 1 Approved Cool Whip?

View Full Version : Phase 1 Approved Cool Whip?

I was at the grocery store earlier today stocking up to start phase one tomorrow and decided, if need be and I got a super "can't deal or i'll eat my own hand" type sugar craving I'd resort to eating a SF Jello w/ cool whip...problem is none of the cool whip was SBD Ph 1 approved as all of them had sugar added!!

I ended up deciding that a table spoon of whipping cream (whipped with stabilizer) wouldn't be horrible, though I realize due to fat content isn't approved...

My question is, any other Canadians able to find SBD approved cool whip?!

I am not Canadian, so have no idea what is available to you, but do think the whipping cream is a better choice than the cool whip. South Beach is about whole foods. Cool Whip is 100% artificial crap.

I don't know about Canada, but here in the states the Sugar-Free Cool Whip has the SBD logo on it. It still has some questionable ingredients in it, though, so be sure it use it sparingly.
How about trying a dollop of fat-free yogurt on your jello, instead?

In Canada we have Cool Whip Light, Cool Whip Low Fat, and regular old Cool Whip. All have corn syrup among the first ingredients.

So I think the only way to find SBD-friendly Cool Whip is to go on a cross-border shopping trip!

Honestly.. im Canadian and i can only find regular and light cool whip and i figure..if it comes down between having a tbsp of cool whip on my sugar free jello or losing my diet challenge to a simple craving going out of control and turning into sabatoge, i rather take the tbsp of cool whip.. If you look at the container though, it says 3 carbs for 3tbsp i believe? So..i dont think it will kill you if its once in a wihle..but i rather take the tbsp then lose my diet to a binge.
