going to the store... TONIGHT. I wish they made more light baby-bell varieties, you know, the ones n those fun little wax wheels that are a complete rip-off ( you know, 3.50 on sale for 6 of them) but those with turkey pepp are my favorite and easiest, most filling snack

So what all are you going to bake? I can find low carb options but they are still not calorie friendly enough for me. I've never even made the oopsie rolls. I have the walden farms syrup and it's good. Just can't figure out what to put on it!

I put the Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup on Light Cool Whip (some use regular cool whip because it has 2g carbs and the others have 3g -- so whatever you prefer). I've also eaten the syrup with PB2 (I am on a PB2 kick.)

I would do the unsweetened almond milk (vanilla) that's 40 calories per cup and 1g carbs. I use it in my coffee and love it!

If you shop at Costco, they sell Hans Natural gluten-free gourmet Chicken Sausages. I just ate one for lunch and it's one of my favorite things. They have a spinach/fontina one for 110 cal 1g carb and then a sun-dried tomato/provolone one for 130 cal/2g carbs. The spinach one is great with sauerkraut and mustard. The sundried tomato one is wonderful with miracle noodles and sugar free pasta sauce and parmesan!

I have to add something else I've been using. Starbucks Via - those little instant coffee packets. They have a decaf version and it's super yummy. I just made a frappaccino by using the Via packet, medi choc shake scoop, a splash of fat free plain coffee mate, a splash of da vinci dulce du leche syrup, and some walden farms chocolate syrup. And ice. Eating it with a spoon now.

K, just found this tonight because I was dying for something sweet but I refused to go off diet. It was awesome and satisfied the sweet imp that was poking me!!! Wonderful! 10 net carbs, I was willing to sacrifice and even with my veggies today I was able to stay @ 19 net carbs. I've been staying under 25 net carbs since the beginning of this diet (3 wks ago) and I have never been out of moderate ketosis.

I got my package from netrion yesterday. The walden farms chocolate dip kind of sucks, but what did I expect. Im going to keep it anyways because I feel like Ill use it anyways, even if only for my daughter, and at 4$ it wasnt worth shipping back. Cant wait to bake with the sugar alcohol. I think Ill do that tonight.

I like the Walden Chocolate Syrup much better. But try the dip with Cool Whip or PB2. It works better on those. Or save it for when you have ice cream/frozen yogurt (not full fat -- but lowfat, just may not be as low carb as you want now) -- I think it'll work OK.

I like the dip with strawberries. I'm going to try the pb2 and cool whip idea! I've noticed all of Walden Farms products need to be combined with something else to be palatable. I like them though - they're definitely time savers!

Walden Farms Carmel Dip.....so yummy with Apple slices. For being zero everything, it is def awesome!

I need suggestions....I am on the go in the AM and don't have time to do breakfast. I am looking for something that I can take with me to be able to still stay on plan. I have tried the Atkins daybreak bars, which are good, but I am hungry halfway through the morning (I spend 4 hours outside in the sun, so I sweat ALOT here in FL!). I need something more filling. Any ideas???

Not sure how you feel about Protein shakes. I just bought Gold Standard 100% Whey - Vanilla Ice Cream flavor (at the suggestion of someone on this thread). It was amazing and very filling for a long period of time. I had it in addition to a few ounces of deli turkey for lunch. I was full well into dinner. I felt like I was cheating in a big way- deeelishhh!

I eat Adkins bars almost every morning. I eat both the Endulage bars and just their regular bars. It doesn't affect ketosis for me, and I am still losing weight (-4.5 this week). My clinic told me that I could keep eatting them. They do effect some people thought so try them out and see. If I eat the endulage I am hungry before lunch, if I eat the full size bars I am not, so I just adjust to my day.

You can also try the shakes with unsweetened almond milk.

Did you buy Gold Standard 100% Whey - Vanilla Ice Cream flavor in the store or online? Is it more economical than Medi Shakes? Thanks.

Can anyone tell me which Walden products they truly do like? I bought about 8 different bottles of various things and poured a drop on a spoon to taste them and I didn't like 4 of them so I took them back! (My store told me I could if I didn't like them) I think I spent $40 or so just on sauces to help me w/ the proteins but I thought they were watery and overly sweet from the sucralose.

I tried:
Ranch dressing
Raspberry jelly
BBQ sauce
Strawberry sauce

I'm desperate for a really yummy BBQ sauce, ketchup and easy to access dressing so I don't have to whip up my own next week when I start adding veggies.
Thanks!

You said eight products -- you list four. What were the other four?

So far, I like the Walden Farms chocolate syrup (best find) and ranch dressing. I didn't care for the marshmallow dip. The chocolate dip is OK, the syrup is better.

Anyone got fave whey protein powder (vanilla and chocolate flavors)? I've tried a few and not one tastes good by itself. I tried Jay Robb's and a couple of unknown brands. It's hard to find whey protein powders sold in individual packs to try before buying a big expensive pack.

I posted this on another thread and doctored it up to post here:

You may want to consider checking out the brand, "SYNTRAX" Nectar versions of their protein powders. MOST Nectar versions of (3 or 4 different versions and within each version, some have various flavors) have:
23g protein per serving / 0 carbs / 0 sugar - sweetened with either sucralose or stevia for their naturals flavors.

I think their Cookies & Cream and their Mint Chocolate Cookie flavor may have a few more calories (around 140 calories) and maybe 1 or 2 carbs? I haven't tried them yet.

It's a whey isolate protein so they mix incredibly well in water. They have many, many flavors...you can order them online or at local stores such as Vitamin Shoppe. Runs approx $34 for a HUGE, HUUUGE container. I have 1 per day to help get low calorie, no carb protein in, in lieu of the MWL shakes...

They also have a Matrix line that has a undenatured whey protein - higher quality protein but it's more sensitive so you shouldn't heat it up, etc.

Walden Farms, to me, is terrible alone but if you mess with it it improves. I like the chocolate syrup in milk is all. I have the BBQ sauce too and it's ok but again, I add stuff to it. Have you tried the BBQ rubs instead? There are also recipes for decent low carb sauces. For dressings, I use the salad spritzers or red wine vinegar or salsa.

Thanks for heads up! Will look into it -- wanted others to know it's SYNTRAX (with R).

I just had some of the Westbrae unsweetened vegetarian ketchup...whoever recommended this, THANK YOU!!! It was just OK tasting it on a spoon but I had it with scrambled eggs just now and it was AWESOME!!! A bit of a thicker ketchup but I'd prefer thicker to watery ketchup. I LOVE the taste of it it! Thanks!!!

I'm a big fan of the Walden Farms Carmel Dip; I have 2 TB in my protein shake everyday and I look forward to it. It changes the texture-- making the shake more creamy-- and it adds a pretty strong brown sugar flavor.

I agree that the marshmallow and the chocolate dip are nothing to write home about, but the BBQ sauce is fine. In fact I made a two-day pot roast with a light brushing of the sauce on the second day and my husband (NOT a dieter) raved about it.

I also bought a jar of the peanut butter spread which was really ho hum-- I can't imagine anyone eating an actual sandwich made with the stuff but it did add a slight peanut flavor to my shake.

Check the labels on the BBQ sauce at your local grocery store. I found one (can't remember the brand and I'm not home) that was low carb. I don't use it much just to brush on chicken when grilling mainly but it's good and it was okay on the carbs.
