HOW NOW SKINNY COW?
Skinny Cow fans, listen up! The popular diet-friendly ice cream brand Silhouette is adding Skinny Carb ice cream sandwiches (7g of net carbs) to their line-up of frozen offerings. The new treats will hit the shelves later this month. Moo-hoo!
Good news if you're addicted to spuds but watching your carbs. The latest in the world of scientifically altered vegetables is a low carbohydrate potato. The new yellow, waxy, smooth "Spud-U-Lite" contains 1/3 fewer carbs than regular potatoes, and according to the dutch company who created it, is "the future of the potato." No word on when you'll actually get to chew one, but we'll certainly keep you informed of all breaking potato news...
WEIGHT WATCHERS SCORES POINTS
According to a new study, half of all dieters who reached their goal weight through Weight Watchers were at least 5 percent lighter than their original weight after five years.

In any case, neither the carb, fat or Olestra content of the chips will change -- only the packaging. Confused? Um, quite frankly, so are we.
