I can actually do the half cup thing but it sure is skimpy. You have to really savor every bite.

I can take icecream or leave it. Except Coldstone. If I buy it I know I would only get one serving. Then hubby and daughter would lick it clean.

Hubby eats a Breyers "No Sugar Added" ice cream. I don't know if its the same. Search the net and you'll find nutrition info and ingredients. Watch for sugar and for starches like corn starch.

Too bad you didn't jot down the fat etc contents. Oh it might be on the site. I personally can't buy 1/2 gallons of ice cream. I will eat the whole thing in a few days )o; . I bet it's really good! It is probably okay, but please watch the calorie count!!!!Servings of all iceream I see are only a 1/2 cup. Can you do that?? I hope you can!

I have a question while we are on the subject of sweet treats. I saw icecream at the store today by Breyers. Called Carbwatch with splenda. Its vanilla. Has anyone tried it? I don't want to invest if it isn't good for me.

Robin, my diabetic hubby has the same experience. Often the carb count is the same.

Nuts are good. Go for it! 1 oz a day, about a 1/4 cup. Go for dry roasted for less fat and unsalted.

Wow. You guys are AWESOME with the quick responses!

And, you know, I had a couple of cashews, and I don't even want it now.

Tomorrow, however, may be another story. emoticon

Being a diabetic i have quite a bit of experience with s/f candy. I tend to run into problems with the carb counts. Many if not most s/f candy including chocolate is very high i carbs and fat. I find that s/f for the most part still makes my Blood sugar go way up )o; . So when I crave it I usually eat the regular kind, just in very tiny amounts.

You may have sugar free chocolate and candy in phase one. From our "Great Tips" sticky thread:

SWEET TREATS (Limit to 75-100 calories per day)
Sweet treats are items that contain sugar alcohols, such as:
Candies, hard, sugar-free
Chocolate powder, no-added-sugar
Cocoa powder, baking type
Fudgsicles, no sugar added
Gelatin, sugar-free
Gum, sugar-free
James and jellies, sugar-free
Popsicles, sugar-free
Syrups, sugar-free
Whipped topping, light or fat-free - 2 TBS
Some Sugar Free Products may be made with sugar alcohols (isomalt, lactitol, mannitol, sorbitol or xylitol) and are permitted on the SBD. They may have associated side effects of GI distress (abdominal pain, diarrhea & gas) if consumed in excessive amounts.

I forgot to add that if you need a chocolate treat most of us like the sugar free fudgsicles and they are okay in phase one as is no sugar added chocolate powder, unsweetened cocoa powder or sugar free chocolate syrup.

Kierae, Pam, and Jay Dee can answer this better than me but until they get here - Get rid of that chocolate!! LOL.

Sorry, no chocolate in phase 1. Your goal is to eliminate cravings.

Chocolate can be added in phase 2. It should be dark chocolate with the least amount of sugar and highest cocoa levels you can find. If you read the ingredients on the chocolate you will usually be able to tell if they are okay and most stuff like this contains something that isn't beachy like transfat, etc.

Today is Day 1 - Phase 1. Going really well so far because I planned out my meals for the week (yay!).

Several co-workers are doing this with me, along with my hubby, and one of them asked me about sugar-free chocolate. While I know sugar-free "treats" are allowed, I don't think I've read anything yet about sugar-free chocolates. However, they gave me one, and it's taunting me from my desk drawer. emoticon

Is it okay to have one or two of these if it falls under the 75 calorie rule?
