WAIT WHAT NO CALORIE SALAD DRESSING!



Recommended Posts

Please tell me this is not a new thing. I'm going to buy it because it's a free food who cares if it tastes NASTY LOL. Jk but I have notice since I've been DIEting everything is tasting so much better as long as it goes into my mouth hahaha. So has anyone else seen or tried this Salad Dressing and what do you think of it. 20190527_170727.jpeg 20190527_170735.jpeg

Watered down Tomato paste thickened with xanthan gum?

That looks like some FDA voodoo math--the actual food has been diluted below the per serving reportable standard.

I actually have tried several of these. None of them are super great, but I like the Ranch version the best. I have used it with canned chicken as a kind of chicken salad before.

LOL. Welcome to my world. :) ;)

No it isn't new. Yes, I've come to love a lot of them. My faves are Italian, Sesame Ginger, and Asian. :)

We carry all flavors at the BariatricPal Store. You can buy them for MUCH less in your local grocery store, if available. (It costs us a ton to ship glass and liquid so we need to charge a bit more than we do for other products.)

If a product contains 5 or fewer calories per serving, manufacturers are allowed to round that down to 0 on the Nutrition Facts label.

Oh I sure never knew that Alex, doesn't seem quite fair, does it?
After all, something should not equal nothing in my book.

I agree 100%

Same goes with Zero calories sweeteners like Splenda. Each packet does have (4) calories but under 5 calories per serving.

“According to federal regulations, the terms ‘calorie free,’ ‘free of calories,’ ‘no calories,’ ‘zero calories,’ ‘without calories,’ ‘trivial source of calories,’ ‘negligible source of calories,’ or ‘dietarily insignificant source of calories’ may be used on the label or in the labeling of foods, provided that food contains less than 5 calories per reference amount customarily consumed and per labeled serving,”

I'm personally not worried that these rules are what's causing the worldwide Obesity epidemic 😀

Get outta my head, Alex! That's not your's! Ha! I was thinking the same thing...that if I have to worry about the 12-15cals I'm getting in my Salad Dressing and not counting in MFP, I have a much bigger problem from an order of magnitude proportion. And as they said in Jaws, "We're gonna need a bigger boat..." *snort*

But yeah, the rules of the food industry keep them just a few steps in front of us all the time.

Well yeah I do also, oh wait you must put Water on your salads also LOL ok I get it. We all can be sarcastic. I'm really good at that and if you were drinking calorie free, sugar free , fat free ,carbohydrate free, gluten free and cholesterol free water all day why are you on this page? With that much water in your system you must be as thin as a spaghetti noodle IJS.

Actually it was half way decent. Tasted like a very light (watered down) thousand island. I have NO idea what xanthan gum is but if it's going to help me and not kill me I'll deal with it LOL.

I really don't know what kind of dressing it was all I understood was it was zeros in every category except sodium and it tasted ok, I mean I can deal with it and I'm a foodie. I enjoy food a lot and I'm a great cook. I also found some coconut oil that is 10 calories for 5 pumps. Perfect for egg whites.

Wow that many I need to search them because I only seen the 1 I posted. Another women said she sometimes use the ranch with canned chicken and it makes chicken salad. Will be on Google checking them all out LOL Amazon here I come.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
