I am not a yogurt person, but for those who enjoy the creamy stuff, Yoplait has a new line of greek yogurts that work as a snack. Based on my research, any flavor of the Yoplait Greek Yogurts will work! The best carb to protein ratio is found in the "plain" flavor, but why eat plain when you can have blueberry? Current flavors include: Peach, Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Vanilla, Plain, and Key Lime.

Most yogurts do not work, but some greek yogurts do and this is one of them. So if you are ready for a snack and you like yogurt give these a try.

A Candy Bar for a Snack? No Way!!

My wife is always on the lookout for new snack and meal ideas. Last week she brought home a package of snack size Payday candy bars and said "I believe these will work." I was skeptical, but I looked at the nutritional value and SHE WAS RIGHT!!

You can have 2 PayDay snack size bars and not cause your body to store fat! Each bar has:

90 Calories
9g of Impact Carbs
3g of protein

NOTE: You cannot eat a regular size PayDay bar as a snack. It has too many calories and the impact carb to protein ratio is not correct. It will cause the fat trash truck to run!!

Do You Like Butter?

You don't have to give up the taste of butter if you want to burn fat!! The following are some healthy options

1. Promise Fat Free Spread (1 TBPS = 5 calories)
2. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spread (1 TBPS = 5 calories)
3.  I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray (1 Spray =  0 Calories!)

The maximum amount of condiments you can have per meal is 50 calories. The best rule is "2, 2 and very few." In other words, 2 grams of fat, 2 grams of sugars or less, and as few calories as possible. If you use a butter that has 45 calories per serving, chances are there are no other condiments you can add that will keep the total under 50 calories so you would have to have that butter as the only condiment.
