Yes Lori the smart ones thin crust pizza is the only frozen one I can stand and it does help but still not the same !! HA HA... thanks for thinking of me tho..... Ocassionally I will break down and make a pizza from the flatout light ones and top with turkey pepperoni and or a spinach artichoke one that I really like . Most often I just save up and have a thin crust pizza every two months or so to get it outta my system !! I love thin crust now ! ANd have grown to LOVE the white pizzas !
I have found pretty much any substitute on TSD except for PIZZA !!
I have learned to live with it less often !!

Oooo k… with the pizza talk, I had to stop and get a Smart Ones pizza on the way to work. I may talk myself out of it by lunch time and have it as a stand by, though,and have a bag of my medifast pizza bites that I have left over instead.
I’ve never heard of the Pilsbury Pizza pops!!! I just googled them and they look delicious! I don’t think we have them around here.. I’m so jealous!!
Sometimes the Bariwise Pizza chips help the pizza cravings too. It helps me when I’m just craving the spices and not the texture, which for me is most of the time. I’m more of a flavor person. The Bariwise brand is better than the Medifast pizza bites, I think, but even they’re not too bad. I like to have them dipped in a little hotsauce!

Christine try Smart Ones pizza...it's slightly over 300 cal 350 I think but it might take away the craving or Pillsbury Pizza Pops have only 260 cal, in Canada anyway I've noticed that sometimes the calorie count is different between Canada and the US.

I have to be careful, because sometimes they set off a binge, but they're really good for when I'm craving chips. High in protein, low in cals/fat, and portion controled. Plus they come in all different flavors... I'm stuck on the bariwise flavors right now, but Wonderslim has a sour cream and onion flavor that tastes JUST like a funyun to me.
The only thing that I find weird is that the texture is different from regular chips (more of a poof than a chip), and they come in weird shapes. The Wonderslim sour cream and onion looks like cheerios, the Bariwise salt and vinegar looks like little rice cakes, and the Bariwise dill pickle looks like a small, crinkle cut french fry, for example. It's an easy adjustment to make for a salty protein snack, though.

I know that we can have a bar instead of one of the shakes, but does anybody eat protein chips as an option?
I got hooked on the medifast chips as a quick lunch/snack (I'm lazy and don't like to warm stuff up sometimes - lol!), and when I stopped medifast the first thing I did was look for protein chips. I particularly like bariwise dill pickle chips, and with 130 calories, 3 grams of fat, and 12 grams of protein they fit in the "bar" category. Some of the bariwise chips have a lot of fiber in it too (which is something I watch, even if technically we don't have to for the diet), and that helps me feel full for a long time! (I know the pizza flavor and the salt and vinegar flavor each have 5g fiber/bag. I wish the dill pickle chips did too - they're so good! It's not fair!!! Sorry.. I digress )
I know I can't be the only "salty" person around here, and I was just wondering if anybody else used this modification in the simple diet, and what kind of luck you had with it. TBH, I try to stay to the guidelines, but I haven't been strict enough with myself to be able to say how using the chips may affect the diet.
