I would make ranch flavored one with extra Protein and have it with carrot chips.

8oz Neufchatel cheese

~1/2 C of sour cream

~1/2 packet of ranch seasoning

2 scoops of unflavored Protein Powder

You can make all sorts of dips with plain greek yogurt. I make my ranch dip with it. But more often than not I just opt for hummus. Love that stuff.

I just can’t get into hummus. I have tried so many different ones.

Any other dip ideas?

I love beetroot dip, white bean, spinach and carrot dip. But as I love to eat them with soft bread I’m currently giving them a miss. In time I might have them again.

I use the hidden valley ranch dip mix with Greek yogurt (instead of the recommended sour cream) and it tastes just as good. I also eat hummus a lot.

In case you ever feel like doing the "from scratch" route, you can make your own mix:

  • Quote

    • 1/3 cup dry buttermilk
    • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
    • 2 teaspoons dried dill weed
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder
    • 2 teaspoon dried onion flakes
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon dried chives
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 cup fage plain yogurt

I like doing this just so I know everything that is in the mix instead of monosodium glutamate, modified food starch, maltodextrin, guar gum, Calcium stearate, natural flavor (soy). MSG, modified starch and maltodextrin, and guar gum are in high concentration than buttermilk in commercially available ranch packets.

Sounds good! I would for sure try it from scratch. Thanks for the tip

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
