Lean Pockets Chart Pr0n

So, for some reason I’ve been on a kick of researching different product groups, and building charts out of them so I can find point values easily. It’s only fair that I pass on my “research” to you, the dieting and curious masses. Without further ado, here’s a break-down of the points and nutrition for Lean Pockets.

Oh, and sadly I could not do the same with the other Hot Pocket products as I can’t find their nutrition information published on the company’s website. Oh Well.

Applebees Update: Let There be Nutritional Information

So, I’m pretty sure that everyone has been to a chain restaurant at some point in their lives. I know I’ve been to a few, and some are more of a reliable standby then others. One such, is Applebees. The food and prices there are both good and consistent. Their menu is varied enough that I can usually always find something I want to eat. On top of that, they even have several menus items with Weight Watchers points listed. Now if that isn’t helpful on a diet, I don’t know what is.

Well, as kind as they are about having Weight Watchers menu items, they have usually been less forthcoming with the nutritional information on other items on their menu. One such area that this was particularly annoying with was their “Under 550 Calorie” menu. It’s a great marketing ploy, and nice to have healthier options on a menu, but as any dieter knows, their is a lot more to nutrition then a calorie number. Weight Watchers specifically also looks for fat, and fiber.

Well, what started this whole spiel is that while recently on another site, Eat This Not That, one of the under 550 items was listed as a healthier alternative, and had nutritional information listed. Well, skipping over to Applebees‘ site, low an behold, there was a nutritional information section for all of the menu items. Hooray, no more guess work!

So, as a celebration, here is a nice clean breakdown of the Weight Watchers information for Applebees’ Under 550 Calorie menu:

Food Calories Fat Fiber Points
Asiago Peppercorn Steak 390 14 5 8
Asian Crunch Salad 490 9 7 10
Grilled Dijon Chicken & Portabellos 450 16 6 10
Grilled Shrimp & Island Rice 380 4.5 6 7

What’s New: NOS Sugar Free

So, I like energy drinks, let the wailing and gnashing of teeth commence…Okay, got that out of your systems? Good. Actually, I like sugar free energy drinks the best, and frankly I think that they’re not too bad for you.

Think about it like this. Most of them don’t have the artificial sweeteners in them like diet soda. Also, with the sugar free cans, you’re talking about 20 calories per can. That’s a big old zero on the Weight Watcher’s point scale there. The only drawback is the long term effects of the energy spike from the caffeine in the drink. Since I don’t drink coffee, lets call it square.

I digress. Usually, I’ll reach for Low-Carb Monster, or Sugar Free No Fear, but what caught my eye this past Sunday was the NOS Sugar Free. I have vivid memories of the regular NOS, and it’s cat litter like stench from some friends of mine who love the stuff, so I was slightly hesitant. Still, it was cheaper than all the others, and I could always, you know, not drink it.

Okay, onto the actual beverage. Visibly, and taste-wise, this is an orange drink. It’s actually really similar to an orange soda, but without that distinctive aftertaste that you get from diet ones.  It is carbonated, so there were some foul smelling burps going on while drinking, and a little bit afterward. Walking away from the energy drink, there’s not much  to say. It’s like orange soda with a punch. Actually, it just occurred to me what it’s like: Sparks energy beer, only without the lovely alcohol content.

You know, the more I mull it over, the more I think this might be my new favorite energy drink. It’s orange, which I love,  (Insert Keenan and Kell joke here) and the crash that follows any energy drink was almost non-existent. That could be because there wasn’t too much of an energy spike to begin with. Perfect. If I’m going for a carbonated energy drink, this is my new standby.

Because it’s Tuesday: National Ice Cream Month Chart Pr0n

Hi folks, and welcome to the tail end of National Ice Cream month. You heard me right, this entire month has been devoted to ice cream, and I didn’t get around to telling you until now. I know, I’m a bad person. Actually, I’m even more horrible than you think. National Ice Cream Day, the day where EVERYONE should eat some ice cream…has already gone past.

You heard me right, it was actually this past Sunday as the third Sunday of the month. What’s horrifying is that I didn’t even get to knock back a pint on that day, or go to a parlor (I did manage to grab an ice cream snickers, but that doesn’t count).

So, to make it up to everyone, I got a little industrious, and made the ultimate Ben & Jerry’s chart. Yup, I did it. All of the flavors listed on their website with Weight Watcher’s friendly breakdown of nutrition per serving as well as point values per serving, and per pint. That last bit’s just because I’m me, and can’t walk away from an opened Ben & Jerry’s.

Well, here’s the list folks. Now you can put a number on guilt…Or, take a break, say what the heck, and enjoy Ice Cream for what it is: frozen happiness. No gutter minded jokes now, you hear!? No going there 😛
