WHAT A COW-TASTROPHE!
Have you noticed that Laughing Cow Light cheese is harder to find than a Tickle Me Elmo doll circa Christmas 1996? The 35-calorie-2-gram-of-fat-1-carb cheese wedges are flying off the shelves faster than they can be made, and people are going to extremes to get them. Our Hungry Girl spies tell us that some folks have been camping out at supermarkets waiting for deliveries -- and stores are putting limits on how many wheels customers can purchase at once. Why all the hoopla? Some say its the teeny weeny mention of the low cal snack in The South Beach Diet book. We're not convinced our Chew the Right Thing write-up didn't have something to do with it. In any case, that earring-clad red heifer is laughing all the way to the bank.
NEW 7-UP PLUS
This month a new fizzy drink arrives. It's called 7-Up Plus. 7-Up plus what, exactly? Well, fruit juice for one. And nutrients, like calcium. The new "low carb" soda contains 10 calories and 2 carbs per serving, and will be marketed via a fancy ad campaign (aimed at women) featuring Sex & the City stars Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, as well as Regis and Kelly. Here's the funny part. They're touting this new soda as "low carb" but we can't figure out why that's such a big deal, considering regular Diet 7-Up has never had any carbs at all.
FRUIT FIGHTS FAT
A new study shows that people who increase their fruit intake are less likely to gain weight over time. The bottom line seems to be, increase your fruit consumption and cut down on your fat intake, and you won't gain as much weight. Imagine that! Experts speculate that calories play into the equation as well, as people who filled up on fatty foods instead of fruit tended to take in more calories on a daily basis. Uhhh, does anyone else find this embarrassingly obvious?
DOMINOS PIZZA NEWS
There's a new pizza in town. It's called carb-cruncher and it's being brought to us by Dominos. Before you get all giggly, you should know a few things. Each tiny carb-reduced slice has between 150 and 310 calories (normal humans eat at least 2 or 3). And there are between 8 and 21 grams of fat per piece. The new pies are available in just a few markets and only at select Dominos locations within those markets. Sounds like even if you can't find it, you won't be be missing much. Need a pizza fix? Try this INCREDIBLE no-fat pizza instead..
