1 tbsp of olive oil has 40 cals...and I think most of us have dressed our salads with it a few times. I wouldn't worry one bit (again in moderation)

How should I declare fat and calories from fat? Answer: Because it is present at a level below 0.5 g, the level of fat is expressed as 0 g. Calories from fat would also be expressed as zero. 21 CFR 101.9(c)(1)(i), 21 CFR 101.9(c)(2) http://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceComp.../ucm064894.htm Same goes for 0 sugar So a 0/0/0 piece of gum could potentially have 0.4g of sugar and they would round it down to zero. Chew 10 pieces in a day and you've just upped it to 4g of sugar. EVERYTHING in moderation!
That is so interesting!!! So a 10 piece of sugar free gum day can add 10 grams. I will be limiting my gum to 1-2 pieces. Thanks for this info!

This is why 2 egg whites and chicken broth are allowed as 'free', as they have low calories, but more importantly no carbs, fat, or sugar. Its all protein. And WF and Splenda do have calories and carbs, just not enough to be labeled by the FDA. This is one reason why coaches advise you to limit them. Example: 1 splenda packet has ~4 calories and ~.9g carbs.

I just read this as I am eating 2 cups of rhubarb for lunch with about 9 Splenda packets and it's still super tart. I guess I should stick to mixing it with the pudding!

Right! You have to use the actual serving size. Any amount over the serving size will provide unwanted carbs etc... including 0/0/0 items.

I have never had the wf spread so if this tastes good someone let me know...strawberry rhubarb pie is awesome and to just get any taste that would be remotely similar would be great! Cheers Jake

Perhaps try drinking more water - the Mio flavored water maybe?

I am also approved to use 2 egg whites/day MAX, which contributes ~35 calories all from ~8g protein - again meeting the "0/0/0" advisement on the sheet. I use the chicken broth allotment on weekdays, and use the 2 egg whites on weightlifting days and the weekends in my packet recipes (usually crispy cereal pancakes or pudding waffles) Again - check your labels, log your food, and clear with your individual coach.
Liz, You would be a stellar coach! And it seems clinics let their coaches be part time, how fun and inspirational would that be?

Try using Sweet Leaf liquid stevia - truly 0 carbs. I buy it online - check around.

I use strawberry syrup with my rhubarb and it's pretty tasty.
