I use Cinnamon Trident, very occasionally.

It's sweetened with Sucralose (Splenda).

Weigh in day and my oh my I almost wonder if I somehow tricked the scale this morning at the clinic. 6 pounds down! Came home and weighed and it already showed a 2 pound higher number, but will go with clinics scale and hope it holds for next week. It just feels not even real.......

Quick question...in looking up tofu recipes I keep seeing "nutritional yeast" in the ingredients. Supposedly it adds a cheesy flavor. Does anyone use this? It's not 0/0/0 but if I was to use it in a tofu dish without meat, would that be okay?

The nutritional data for 1 oz: 79 cal;1g fat; 2g net carbs; 14g protein.

Hi everyone, insane losses from some people!

20 lbs in a week?! My head is spinning!

Yesterday I went to Chipotle and managed to not miss the burrito bowl I usually get with rice and beans. I opted for a salad, got extra romaine, then topped with peppers and onions, fresh salsas, and a bit of sour cream on the side instead of dressing (less carbs). So good!

I don't think I had enough water yesterday, or maybe not just as much as I usually drink. I usually drink three 32oz bottles but had one 32oz bottle and several glasses of water for lunch and dinner. So, today I am loading up! Just finished my first 32oz bottle and about to fill up. I love water.

Most coaches allow some gum, but warn to be cautious and not overdo it. Most of the no sugar gums I've used have 1 carb/piece - so if you have too many pieces/day those carbs would soon add up.

Oooh, good thinking on the sour cream...I've been thinking of going to Margaritas for dinner tomorrow and wondering how I could make my salad still taste Mexican. I could have guac on the side and just dip my fork in it...not perfect but it might satisfy my cravings!

Wow!! 101 lbs GONE??!! CONGRATS!! Way to go

20 lbs in ONE WEEK?! Holy crap! that's GREAT!!

I did a bit of an experiment this morning...my hand specialist cut my cast off yesterday to take a look at my thumb at my pre-op consult, then she put it back on and ssecured it with an ace bandage. Well, this morning I weighed myself BEFORE I took the cast off for a shower and I was at 149.6, then I took the cast off and i was 148.8, so now I KNOW my cast weighs ALMOST 1 lb I found that kind of interesting.

Also, I'm pretty darn happy I'm having a WHOOSH week! We'll see exactly how many pounds tomorrow morning when I weigh-in.

I'd be tempted to go for it. But as a safeguard I'd first enter the values of the tofu and nutritional yeast called for in your recipe into some food intake recording system like fatsecret.com to check how the overall nutritional values compare to the 8 oz of protein that you're replacing with the tofu/nutritional yeast mixture.

That's great news on the "whoosh" week. I thought I was having one but this morning wasn't working for me. I hope it's all gone again by tomorrow's WI...

You have already answered your own question. If you're sticking to protocol, then no it's not ok for Phase 1 - only "extras" that are 0/0/0 are safe for phase 1.

I was thinking of doing just that...I like to use Sparkpeople cause I can enter the recipe then enter the number of servings.

Here's my thought, if I get the nutritional value of the serving of tofu and yeast, then compare it to the nutritional value of, say, 8 oz.chicken then eat that as my protein instead of the chicken, then technically it's not an extra so it doesn't have to meet the 0/0/0 requirement...Am I just thinking too much? LOL

LOL probably The thing is, there are no carbs in meat protein. So it's not truly an even swap. 2g net carbs may not seem like a lot, but it's as many carbs as there are in some of the unrestricted packets. But you can't ALSO balance the carbs out by skipping a packet.
