The inv wrapped kind is one oz per slice but the kind in the package that is not inv wrapped have never been one oz per slice.

They are putting less in the packages so they did not have to raise the price or raise it as much that is. They were talking about this on a TV show not to long ago.

This is the link to the Atkins website. even tho I dont fully do it the atkins way anymore I do still eat from the atkins food list/eat. I just count carbs different than they do.

Yogurt is another one- Since when is yogurt 6 ounces? I used to buy 4 ounces or 8 ounces. Granted I haven't bought yogurt for a while but still, and it has only gone UP in price.

1. Stop wasting money- Save money

2. Exercise- do something every day

3. Get organized- mise en place

4. Write a letter by hand at least once a week.

Every day this side of the sod is a good day-
not sure who said it

My animals make me happy, some people not so much- a bumper sticker

I don't think it is a health initiative. I think it is a cost-saving trick by the manufacturers. They can put 10 percent less in the same-sized box and sell it to you at the same price and they hope you won't notice. I especially hate when a recipe calls for an 8 oz can of something and the only size now available is a 7 oz can.

I lost a lot of weight and maintained it for years, then I got all stressed and busy and lost my way. Starting over from a much better place (way less to lose this time!) and making things better.

Tuna is another example. A can of tuna is an ounce smaller than it used to be. Well, the can isn't, but the tuna is. Must be because of overfishing. They've caught all the big ones and are canning smaller ones now.

What's funny is restaurant portions are huge and packaged goods shrink. Just look at old recipes and try to make them, A 16 oz can is now 14.5, etc. Very annoying!

I am starting my ticker again since starting low carb.

Portion sizes? What's that? If it fits on my plate it's a portion. emoticon

I try to measure all of my foods as to weight, either ounces or grams for that reason. It makes it easier for me.

WHAT?? Kris, I thought those ice cream cartons were all one serving!!!

SJP, I think some of the changes are due to marketing - less product, no change in price. I don't remember what I noticed the other day, but I've been doing just what you said - plugging food items into my tracker and racking up more nutrition than I was actually consuming!

according to Spark's nutrition database, one slice of cheese equals one ounce. Which is what it always was when I was a career dieter of the calorie-counting school; that one slice = one ounce = 100 calories was the cornerstone of many a dietetic meal-plan!

But the last time I bought Kraft Swiss and provolone cheeses, the eight ounce packages were ten and twelve slices respectively, and the Kraft chipotle cheddar I picked up last night is...ten slices for 7.5 ounces. So not only is the slice to ounce ratio no longer reliable, the total product per package is now also variable.

If this is one of those “stealth health” initiatives, I believe I'll have to launch a protest. One of those online signature things, maybe. I paid for those ounces!

Okay, so I'm more or less kidding. About the protest, anyway. If I were tracking this month, I'd be seriously annoyed by having to do package-dependent maths. Also surprised to be hungry sooner after eating than I'd expected thanks to the fewer grams of satiating fat in those thinner slices.

Anyone notice any other sneaky reductions recently?
