Today I discovered Trader Joe's Fiberful natural dried fruit and fiber bars. Yum! Delicious, satisfying 60 calorie bars of dried fruit, with 6 grams fiber. One fruit or carb exchange (14 g) individually wrapped to slip in my purse. Next time I'm getting all the flavors.
As a type-2 diabetic, keeping accurate track of my food really matters in glucose control and to lose weight. After watching Biggest Loser, I thought I would try their tip of weighing food, rather than using measuring cups or eyeballing portions. I began weighing the food I had just measured, and I was shocked to see how great a difference there was.
