"What can I have for SNACK?"
Being that we are a SNACK based society now, we are ALL accustomed to having them, as we should! However, the habit to break is not having a snack but choosing the BEST SNACK for your body and of course your weight goals! Below I will begin my Never-Ending Snack List as I believe there are countless numbers of ideas and choices for us...all it takes is a little creativity, knowledge...and yes..sometimes a few minutes to throw it together!
By no means is this list complete, nor am I some health guru, and you better double check my addition, 'cause I sure ain't no wiz kid! But I AM someone who enjoys variety therefore I try to have as many choices before me as possible to make it that much more enjoyable!
You are daily allowed 15 Sugar Points / 6 Carb Points
1 BFC Sugar Point = 1 actual Sugar (listed on label)
1 BFC Carb Point = 5-20 actual Carbs (listed on label)
If you combine foods add all the actual sugars together and all the
actual carbs together to find your BFC Sugar/Carb Points count.
(any questions please refer to the Belly Fat Cure Book or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
|1 oz of Cheese = the size of 4 dice|
- 1oz Cheddar Cheese = 0 Sugar / 0 Carb = BFC 0/0
- 1oz Swiss Cheese = 0 Sugar / 2 Carb = BFC 0/0
- 1oz Colby Cheese = 0 Sugar / 1 Carb = BFC 0/0
- 1oz Mozzarella String Cheese = 0 Sugar / 1 Carb = BFC 0/0
Now does this mean you can have unlimited amounts of cheese rated at 0/0?
NO!Always eat in moderation...even if it has a 0/0 point value...it still has calories! BFC does not stress counting calories...however it does stress to eat in anything and everything in moderation!
If you add crackers to your cheese then you need to add the actual sugar/carb count of the cheese with the actual sugar/carb count of the crackers to get your actual BFC count. I have added some specialty cheeses/spreads below and added them with crackers or other items. I have taken the actual carbs of each item and added them together to come up with the BFC total counts. Always read your labels and do your math! That's what we all went to school for isn't it? Now we actually get to use what we (should have) learned!
- The Laughing Cow - Cheese Wedges
- 3/4 oz wedge = 1 Sugar and 1 Carb = BFC 1/0
They come in a variety of flavors too!
Add a wedge of cheese to one 5" long celery stick and you have a sumptuous mouthful of crunchy bliss without adding any additional sugars or carbs! BFC 1/0
- KRAFT Philadelphia Cream Cheese
- 2 Tbl = 2 Sugar and 1 Carb = BFC 2/0
unless you have them to "spend"....stay away from the Honey Nut and Strawberry and any other fruit blends as they will have a higher count in sugars. Also the Philadelphia Light has 2 Sugars!
