I got a quick question: What's the best concealer I can get in a Vitamin Shoppe?.

I also got another question: Soy Crisps and Fudge Graham Bars/ substitutions??.

Hi I have been reading different information regarding how these two items can be used to substitute as a snack or protein. Can you please clarify for me?.

White Chedder and BBQ soy crisps - can they be used to substitute for the dairy/protein portion at meals or snack time? If so at snack time, would I then eat a piece of fruit with the crisps?.

Fudge graham bar - is this meant as a full snack substitute, i.e. take the place of the fruit + protein/dairy? Or does this bar only substiture for the protein/dairy portion?.

Please let me know! Thank you!..

Your question was: What's the best concealer I can get in a Vitamin Shoppe?.

Also, the fudge gram bar doesn't replace a protein. That was the chewy fudge bar that NS used to make that was discontinued...

I read on here somewhere that someone said that a half a fudge graham fit the stats ok as a protein. I am not sure...

Comment #2

I just checked the package on one and half of one would be 105 calories and 6 1/2 protein so it should be ok to use it as a replacement for a protein/dairy. You could eat your fruit with it...

I was told by the dieticitian that a serving of soy crisps would substitute for a protein...

Are all the chips the same amount of calories? I'm asking because I don't know. I don't have any chips around to check. I'm having trouble losing now so I stick to lean protein.

Just check the stats and make sure they match the protein servings + calorie servings.

I could totally do the chips for a protein serving, but there's no way I'd just eat 1/2 a bar...

Sorry, you have outdated info that was the OLD fudge graham bar that had 180 calories (changed early 2007) - you could have 1/2 of THAT one the NEW recipe fudge graham bar doesn't work, don't know if the "advanced" version will work.

Don't think the soy chips have the same calories some of the Soy CHIPS used to have 100 - 110 calories the Soy CRISP's have always had more calories than appropriate for a dairy/protein serving.

Thank you Lynn. I was looking on the nourish...

I'm sorry Kathy, I didn't read your whole post. Here are the stats you need to look for in order to make replacements for dairy and protein. You need to keep the calories in this range as well as the protein. Balancing the calories and protein is where you usually have difficulty. In order to get enough protein, the calories and fats become too high..

In order to find a replacement for protein for example, you need to find something that's around 100 calories with at least 7 grams of protein and a trace of fat.

Daily with additions average for the Women's Under 60 Plan (Men, anyone with over 100lbs to lose and Over60 Men & Women increase daily average by the additional grocery additions): 1200 calories, 80 grams of protein (25%), 160-180 gram of carbs (55%) and 23-27 grams of fat (20%). Fiber averages 23-26 grams. The recommendation for sugar is no more than 10% of your total calories.

From posts of info received directly from NS counselors:.

1 Vegetable Serving = 5 g. carbohydrates, 2 g. protein, 25 calories.

1 Fruit Serving = 15 g. carbohydrates, 60 calories.

1 Low-GI Carb Serving = 15 g. carbohydrates, 3 g. protein, trace of fat, 80 calories.

1 Fat Serving = 5 g. fat, 45 calories.

1 Protein (lean) = 7 Grams of protein, 3 grams of fat and 55 calories.

1 Dairy (or Dairy/Protein) Serving = 12 g. carbohydrates, 8 g. protein, a trace of fat, 100 calories.

NOTE: I have also seen 7+ gr protein & no more than 3 gr fat, and the occassional yogurt at 120 cal - for a dairy/protein serving in the E-Classes with Mary Gregg, NS dietitian.

Free Foods = A food that is 20 calories or less... You can add 2-3 free foods to your meal plan..
