Apparently this is not new but I just seen it at Starbucks in their Protein meal so I looked into it a bit and the calories and carbs seem comparable to regular bread but it has 4g protein and 3g Fiber in a serving. I don’t have any regular bread to compare but I don’t recall it having protein. Just wondering what others think about it. I had to try it but I only ate half a serving with some hummus and that was more than enough. It’s pretty filling. It tastes delicious.

So i bought hummus a few days ago and next to the humus they have their NAAN bread, Tandori Bread and others that are typically found in the middle east. I was so sad when i saw the nutrition facts. Very high in carbs. (typical with bread) and some of the nutrition facts said the serving size was 1/3rd of 1 slice of bread. I was like seriously??? LOL so now i have nothing to eat my hummus with lol

The one I got at Walmart is called Dippers by Stonefire. It’s 150 calories for 5 pieces. I had 2.5 pieces (yes I actually cut one in half. Lol) with hummus and I was satisfied. I am just wondering if the calories are higher cause of the Protein? ? I have been eating my hummus with Stacy’s pita thins and those have 130 calories per serving but I usually only have three or four chips vs 13 per serving since a serving of hummus is only two tablespoons so I figured it’s not too bad. I still cannot eyeball exactly the 2 tbsp either but I ordered one ounce cups on Amazon to measure my hummus and Salad Dressing. I’m still trying. Lol

i thought we had to watch the carbs more than calories in foods. So thats what i have been looking at going to the grocery store. Anything with a lot of carbs i leave behind.

Everyone’s nutritionist has different rules. Mine didn’t go into any amount of carbs that are okay or not okay but they said to try to stay away from them. I have mostly just gone by calories to be honest but I don’t have alot of carbs at all. Only in fruit/smoothies but that’s all natural sugar.

So what do you do with your hummus? Just eat it with a spoon?? I tried that and I didn’t like it.

Generally yes, a reduced carb diet is recommended while losing though they are many different plans with different guidelines around carbs. But @ShoppGirl is at her goal (congrats) so her diet is less restricted now & she’ll be reintroducing certain food groups or looking for alternatives.

I tried some naan bread with hummus last year. I only managed one bite cause it was just sitting there. Was yummy though. I added multigrain/whole grain crackers to my diet from maintenance which was very handy if eating cheese & dips when socialising. I always keep hummus in my fridge for when friends drop around.

For those not in maintenance try raw vegetable crudités, if or when you’re able, to scoop up your hummus.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
