Heading to LA with the hubs for a weekend of museums, botanical gardens, a play and some good food, and of course watching the Wimbledon finals, go Federer!
CONGRATULATIONS MAMA! I KNOW YOU HAVE WORKED HARD, AND BEING THE FOODY THAT YOU ARE, THIS IS SUCH AN ACCOMPLISHMENT, THANKS FOR BLAZING THE TRAIL! HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

Whats the calorie count on the Premier Nutrition Drinks from Cosco??? I heard they were higher then IP...how many???
The Premier Nutrition Drinks are actually the same as IP drinks made by the same company. (Dr. B's are also the same thing)

All the counts for the premier Drinks are higher because there is 11 ounces in a serving, the IP drinks have 8 ounces I think. I had a complete serving most mornings while I was on phase 1. I liked the good amount of protein to start the day.

The nutritional info is
Calories 160
Fat 3 g
Carbs 5
Fibre 3 g
Sugar 1 g
Protein 30 g

It's right on the line for restricted/non restricted. Personally I'd use it as a non restricted.

Oh man! BLEHHH!!(COUGH HACK WEEZE COUGH GAG) I hear that this "simply bar" is great..so while i was down island in a city area, i went to the local Thrifty Foods and low and behold i found a Simply Bar...Hearing that it was good... i picked one up to try out...I chose the chocolate raspberry...I got it into the car, and ravenously was ready to devour the whole thing..I open the package( sniff sniff) and take my first bite...and BLEHHHH!! It was horrible..How do you guys stand the taste of soy???? I can taste the soy in it like crazy...its got a horrible taste...the cocoa and the raspberry flavours couldnt even mask it... Yuck! I will never buy these again..especially not for the amount of carbs in it...

I think i have resolved that i just cant do bars of any kind...they just never taste right...

I know mompattie and I didn't give good advertising to the protidiet chocolate dream bars but we all have different tastes. If anyone in Canada wants to give them a shot I will send you two boxes. I'd rather pay postage than throw food away.

I think different people have different sensitivities. I eat lots of things with soy and have no problem with it.

SOY? OMG you mean we eat SOY? haha! oh by the "Whey", it would seem we can find many products that contain all kinds of natural things and many chemistry set ingredients too...mostly I stick to real food like salad, veggies, and of course my cherished 8oz of meat each day!
I like my shakes pretty much: EAS low carb RTD, and now have the healthsmart chocoRite powder (fudge brownie) and it is AWESOME...have the peanut butter powder shake also and can't wait to try it!
cheers!

If anyone is interested in the ProtiDiet lemon dream bars I have 2 boxes that I dont care for. I'd be happy to ship them somewhere, like pat I'd prefer not to waste them as someone may like them. We all have different tastes.

That is funny mom. I guess along with the name we have the same tastes!
I gave away two boxes of the lemon bars some months ago to someone who had them before and loved them.
So I guess a rule of thumb for us is don't order any protidiet product with dream in the name!

Default Pure protein s'mores bar??

Hi and happy weekend. Yesterday I miscalculated how many premier protein shakes from Costco I had at work and ran out. So I zipped to Walmart and picked up a box of these s'mores bars. Too sweet!!!! Had a headache for a couple hours. Anyone else with similar issue??

I have just received my first order from Nashua and noticed they've sent me the original version of the cocomint cream shake & pudding even though I asked for the aspartame free one.There's no way I can afford to buy anything else at the moment and I'm wondering how screwed I am with the weight loss if I take it?Am I just not going to lose anything?First time with alternatives too,am a bit stressed out to begin with.

Default White cheddar ridges

Does anyone know of a alternative to the IP white cheddar ridges?? I looooove them, but can't see paying $30 a box

I heard somewhere on here also that 8 carbs = restricted...well my chocolate powder IP drink is 8 and IP considers it unrestricted?? A little confused?
