Things to try soon or have tried

Friday, January 11, 2013

So I bought a couple of things I have been trying or plan to try in the near future.

I have tried the South Beach snack bars, both the whipped almond and peanut butter. The PB ones are actually really good and the almond ones are okay, though different. Better than past diet bars so that's a plus. A nice little snack. I got the almond one at 50% off when buying something else, and the pb one I got for 3.99 on sale at Safeway.

I still have to try the tuna box meal from South Beach but at 7.99 for a single box, I won't be buying them much. Especially since with a small pack of crackers, some tuna and a small bowl, I can make something similar for less many and make more meals out of them.

Slimful bars - These are brand new. And I mean, so new that we have them in the store where I work but the national web site for the company doesn't even show the product. Yeah, that is new. They are appetite suppressant bars that are 90 calories and require 8 oz of water after eating, so nice that it makes me drink more water. I bought 1 honey almond bar and one orange tangerine. Will see how they are on one of my 8 hour work shifts.

Skinny Cow divine filled chocolates - mmmm Caramel and PB cream filled chocolates. These are tasty. The caramel ones remind me of a lighter version of carmello bars. The pb are pretty good too though i'm partial to the caramel. 130 calories for all three squares that come in a package.

Fertilitea preconception loose tea - yeah, random sounding but eh. It's tea. I'm not per se going for fertility aid but my cycle is way off still. At day umm 90 something right now so why not try a little tea to get things going again. If it works great, if not, I just drank some tea. I should get it soon in the mail.

Escali bodyfat and bodywater bathroom scale - There were many scales to pick and I wanted one that wasn't too expensive, but not too cheap either. I really want one of those wi-fi ones but I don't have the money for such. I could get this one off where I work, the web site, it was on sale and I got to use my employee discount. I should have this in a few days and finally be able to weight myself.

    Thanks for the comments. These aren't really diets. I use nutrition bars and snacks for when I'm at work cause I'm a slow eater and only have a short amount of time on breaks to consume anything during the work time. Rest of the day I am focusing on cooking good foods and such, not relying on bought diet food items. I am just curious about the slimful cause sometimes I am hungry when working 8 hour shifts and wonder if one will help during that time.
