ProteinGal! I love the Heinz RS 1 carb Ketchup! I use 1 tbsp every night with my chicken (I'm weird.. i know). It tastes like normal ketchup to me!
Also, with my omelets I throw in half a slice of american Veggie Cheese (1 carb) before I fold them. It comes out melted and delicous!

I didn't know Heinz made 1 carb ketchup. I'm a ketchup loving fool! Must buy some. I don't see my coach until Saturday, can either of you tell me how much is allowed per day?

I bought my ketchup at the clinic I go to, expensive, wish they sold it in my local grocery store. Everyone's coaches are different, my coach said I can have 2-3 products like WF, MIo , etc. a day. Do NOT over do it because the carbs can add up.

Cass, are we allowed veggie cheese in phase 1? Probably can't find it in my small hick town anyways ;)

I only use 1 serving of it per day, 1 tbsp. It's Heinz Reduced Sugar, it has a blue label. It only has 5 calories, 1g sugar (sucralose) and 1g carb. You'd be surprised how much 1 tbsp is on a chicken breast or burger! I love it!
Since I'm in phase 2, I'm finding that my carb intake actually went down to about 20 net carbs per day. I used to have around 35 because of packets. I dont think the extra carb in the ketchup and cheese is going to make a huge difference overall. The cheese even has 3g of protein in one slice.
But then again, these are the only "extras" i'm using. I do not use WF products on a normal day.

I used the veggie cheese every once in a while on phase one, i probably could have used it more. Since switching to phase 2, i've really switched up my packet choices. I'm only doing the omelet packet which has low carbs and either my mango RTD or restricted bar (restricted every other day). Since my carb intake has gone way down (I used 4 packets per day a LOT on phase 1), I am allowing myself these two extra items. I only use the ketchup on my dinner protein and keep my chicken breast for lunch bare. The veggie cheese in my omelet really, really makes it extra tasty.
Here's the link for the veggie cheese I use: http://www.galaxyfoods.com/galaxy-products/soy-cheese/veggie/veggie-slices/
