Question low fat dressing

I used a low fat raz that bad? do I need to bust out the points? I am thinking yes??

The only fat free dressing they had at my work cafe was FF ranch. But I did not use it because it was creamy...I thought we could not have creamy?

any advise?

Also, is balsamic vinger ff? or does that count as points

thanks for the dressing info. I am glad, because I like the ff ranch sometimes, although I am an oil and vinger know us Italians!

what about Balsamic? I like to mix good seasons and the balsamic?

What would be the points in that? if I use the "good" oils.

How would I figure that out?

any suggestions would be appreciated, as that is my favorite

Default As to the fats necessary daily

Kelly, I noticed that on many boards this & other items of the new CORE foods list, are being debated. Hotly...& maybe to hotly?

I am a believer in that one should follow what their choices are until they, themselves feel it is detrimental to their goal. As to the oils..many are having more, & some less. All seem to be losing. & all, so far are healthy. Each diet program has it's up's & down's. I found that answering in general is a good practice, but not to keep reiterating on it, for it will do no good. Each body is different in needs & essentials. No one program, nor one persons ideas or interpretations, are correct. Let each of us just do what we do, & then be happy. If we gain or whatever, then we will change our habits. Many ..or MOST, (from what I see) of CORE dieters, are "tweaking" the foods. Seeing if they can push the limits. Well, they are & doing it most of the time, successfully. So live & let live. Most important is to keep the peace & harmony on boards & between us all.
Have a good one. We all deserve that.

I live in PA and we have a grocery store chain called "Weis Market". They have a FF French dressing and FF Thousand Island that kick butt. I also got the FF Raspberry Vinagrette which is very good!!

I like the Kraft "Lite Done Right" dressings. They are only 1 pt. per Tablespoon and they give you the full fat taste and feel without all the calories.

I'm curious. Someone mentioned that a dressing they liked was near the "low carb" section in the grocery store. I started to pick up a low carb/fat free coffee creamer yesterday but compared it with the "regular" fat free creamer (same brand) and the low carb was twice the number of calories. I have noticed that in a lot of foods. I start to get the low carb only to find that the calories are higher (a habit that is hard to break . Why is that? I would have thought that low carb would be lower in sugar and thus lower in calories. I guess some of the stuff could be higher in fat (for Atkins for example) but this particular creamer was susposed to be fat free also. I just found that kinda wierd, if not misleading to someone trying to lose weight on a low carb diet. I am NOT comparing the different diet plans, just curious as to why low carb advertised on nearly every food item in the store now is not always the best choice calorie-wise.
