What’s a good non sugar item to eat after an intense workout? I would usually do a glass of chocolate milk after running but I am starving after playin an hour and a half of basketball!
  • kmkelman I like the peanut butter rx bar. Or but butter in a banana. Handful of almonds
  • annefood Anything with good carbs and protein that sounds tasty to you. Nuts and fruit per @kmkelman is a great suggestion if you want something light. Or plain yogurt with fresh fruit- you could turn that...
  • ElanaG It was at 10:30pm so definitely didn’t want anything heavy. Ended up just going to sleep
Is the fruit “must” in my balsamic vinegar considered an added sugar?

I am eating chocolate and crisps to avoid fast food. Now what?

  • annefood Hey @alicray! Great question. First, congrats on stepping away from fast food—such a big accomplishment! To cut down on the chocolate and crisps, try replacing them with other deliciously sweet and...
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Did you always stop at the same fast food restaurants and around the same time of day? If so, it's great to celebrate the fact that you've changed that habit so far. If you're finding that you're...

  • annefood Great question @ingalls ! Supposedly no added sugar on a label means no honey, molasses, high-fructose corn syrup, malt syrup or cane syrup. There are many other sugars that therefore seemingly...
  • ingalls Thanks @annefood! The internet searches get overwhelming sometimes. ;-)
  • annefood Indeed they do!

Can I use whole milk and espresso without sweetener? Definitely better flavor but doesn’t the whole milk replace sugar w other calories??
  • annefood Using whole milk instead of sweetener is a great replacement! When thinking about a healthy whole/real foods diet, don’t focus on the calories. If you turn your attention to the quality of the...
  • shmoozii Good info to know. 👍

  • DietID_TeamDietitians My favorite no added sugar to-go snacks: larabars, mary’s Seed crackers with hummus, grapes, mixed nuts, and for a treat - almond butter-stuffed dates (2 of them will fill you up).
  • AlexB Thank you! Going shopping today to stock up a bit more.
  • annefood I always keep an apple in my bag. Brown rice cakes with nut butter are great too, for protein, as are those crispy baked chickpea snacks you can either make or buy in a pouch. Carrot sticks are...

How do the streaks work?? I don’t really understand. Mine is always zero :(
1yr
  • annefood A streak is when you don’t use any full or half passes, and thus successfully avoid added sugar. No passes used for 3 days and you have a 3 day streak, for example. It resets when you use one- I...
  • shmoozii I was wondering about that too.
