I am getting sick of eggs and would like to try something else. It doesn't
need to be cereal. Thanks


Well eggs and susage is about all I ever eat for breakfast. However I
have
tried this cereal, its a pretty good although a tad crunchy. Its high
in protien and fiber, healthy as all hell.

Jean,

I eat soy, and yes it is soy.

BTW, today I was away from home and I finally found the Z-carb bars you'd
been asking me about.

I tested the Dark Chocolate Macadamia nut. The flavor had that cooling
taste that is typical of sugar alcohols. I thought the chocolate taste was
pretty weak compared to Lindt 70%. The calories are very high-181 for a
small bar. I ate a segment 1/3 the size of the whole bar--about the size of
the portion I eat of the Lindt bars, and did not get the same feeling of
satisfaction I get from the Lindt, instead, I found myself quickly craving
more. I haven't had time to check my blood sugar, but since a piece of dark
chocolate the same size with real sugar doesn't raise my blood sugar
perceptibly either, I don't expect to see anything.

For me, I think I'll just stick with one Lindt. The carbs may be lower with
the Zbar, but the calories are very high and the deep chocolate flavor
seemed weak to me.

Eaten
with half a cup of Hood Carb Countdown milk it keeps me fed and not
thinking about food for hours.

Is that soy-y? I forget whether you eschew soy.

Uh-oh! Here I was just gonna check 7-11 again. BTW, that cooling
effect might be okay in some chocolate-mint preparation.

I think good tasting low carb cereal would have to be an oxymoron.

Default Z-bars (was Can anyone recommand a good tasting cereal?

Oddly enough I just tried one of those myself tonight for the first time. I
thought it was fabulous! I did not experience any of the creepy taste
sensation I get with those candies sweetened with malitol, and I thought the
chocolate taste was very intense and satisfying. Best commercial SF bar I
have ever tried. Not an every day event, but it was a great experience. And
no cravings at all afterwards.

Did you get it at a 7-eleven? I went to four looking for them,
thinking that was where they were. No success. Where are they?

Default Z-bars (was Can anyone recommand a good tasting cereal?

Yes, I got it at the local 7-11 (in NJ). I walked in the door and
immediately to the left as you walked in the door they had an entire display
rack of all sorts of LC bars and choices, including 4 different types of the
Zcarb bars. They also carry a whole bunch of the Atkins products, but I
didn't really look and see what they had. The poster on the window showed
the Atkins bread for one, but I'm not especially interested in bread.

I just saw the bars, grabbed a few to try out, and left. I've tried two so
far - the choc-macadamia, and the choco-PB, and thought both were excellent.

Default Z-bars (was Can anyone recommand a good tasting cereal?

Jean,

There were two 7-11s in a town I drove through yesterday, Sunderland MA.
One had them, the other didn't.

I tried a second piece of the Zcarb bar last night and had pretty much the
same experience. Something about that "cooling" taste that comes with sugar
alcohols sparks off a hunger response in me and makes me want to eat more.
I've noticed this before with the Ross chocolates. Since I really don't need
180 calories of extra stuff in my daily plan right now (I'm balancing out
the excesses of Christmas week by eating very modestly) the carbs aren't as
much as an issue for me as the calories so the Lindt 70% square is a better
treat value for me.

Needless to say if you wanted to eat three square of chocolate rather than
one, and could handle the 180 calories, the Zcarb bar would be useful. As
advertised it doesn't seem to cause a sugar spike. The carbs in the Lindt
are higher--about 4 grams and only allow for eating one square. But for some
reason I find the Lindt 70% extremely satisfying in a way no other chocolate
is. And after eating it I don't feel like I need to eat any more chocolate
which is rarely the case with other chocolates. (Don't ask me the details of
the Christmas week excesses but the "Chocolate" played a major part in them.

If it ever warms up here, I'll go look again. I assume this LC
poster is new, so maybe they are making more of an effort to get
such things in. Happily, the 7-Eleven nearest to me is the only
one that has the Iced Botanical drinks, which are pretty good. (I
prefer the strawberry-kiwi one.)
