Looking back at my posts it does look like that doesn't it :D ? If the truth be told though I would choose savoury over sweet any day 8) .

I had been hanging out for a hotdog for a while and I refused to buy the full fat higher calories ones, so I had to wait until my mum went to the shops near her as they don't seem to stock them near me. They are really delicious and do not taste like a fat free/light low calorie food at all.

I sent my poor mum back to her shops for 3 more packets this morning so I have a supply in the freezer :D .

My most exciting food discovery is the dark chocolate snack(50 calories per) that I get to have on my current program.. The best taste and twice a day.

Woolworths is now stocking Weight Watchers chocolate eclairs. I think this is bad :twisted: cause I love them so much. They are only 355kjs so I want to eat the whole box.
Need to get motivated.

I hope so too Sue. I hate it when you discover a great low fat item and then it gets discontinued. I might have to start a thread just to get everyone buying them.

I would be so mad if they stopped making the choc eclairs..
While I haven't really had anything discontinued on me yet I do have to drive a fair distance for some stuff as it isn't stocked near me, even Kavli crispbreads aren't easily found near me :roll: .

Sorry if this has been raised however I enjoy a nice class of Pepsi max. Has anyone noticed that the low or zero sugar drinks sometimes stimulate the appetite?

I've just down my drinking of pepsi and haven't got stuck into any biscuits like I might have before.

I'm not sure if anyone still reads this but a word of warning anyway.....

This morning I discovered that Nestle has put out a new diet dessert, it is chocolate mousse but it is a dark chocolate. I picked one up and was about to chuck it in the trolley when I though I'll check the nutrition panel. Well lucky I did because it has double the calories of the usual diet one or the aero mousse, not too bad in itself but I didn't want people eating it thinking it had the same amount of calories as the other one. It looks yummo though. This has been a community service announcement from Shalimar Industries :P .

Yep. There has been at least one study showing that artificial sweeteners can make you feel more hungry. Which is a pity because I really like having stevia in my coffee!

Which reminds me of my exciting food discoveries:

Stevia. It's a completely natural zero cal sweetener. It's made from the leaves of a South American plant and you can get it from health food stores.

Bean thread noodles (also known as glass noodles). I was making rice paper rolls the other day and normally I use rice vermicelli. Then I noticed that glass noodles have only a fraction of the calories. For a serving it's about 941 kJ for the rice vermicelli and only 249 kJ for the bean thread noodles! I substituted the bean thread noodles and they tasted just as good and had only a third of the calories.

Shirataki noodles. Then I discovered an even more incredible food. They're available at Japanese grocers and are packed in water in weird gelatinous looking packages in the refrigerator section. These are only 20.9 kJ per serving! They're made from a type of Japanese yam and consist almost totally of soluble fibre. Some argue it's actually resistant starch but the effect is the same. Apparently it's a food favourite among low-carbers.
