Changing Times, Changing Labels...
Have you ever looked at a food label only to discover (much to your horror!)
that a product you've been eating for a really long time suddenly has MORE
calories and/or fat than it used to? In the past we've seen it happen with
Lean Cuisine's Brick Oven Style Pizzas (which mysteriously jumped from
having as few as 280 calories and no more than 320, to having 320 - 350
calories), The Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches, the ever-changing Boca
patties, and many more. If YOU spot any changes in the nutritional
information of your favorite HG staples (or ANY product you regularly eat!),
PLEASE send 'em in to us so we can get the word out. And remember, pay
VERY close attention to your food labels. Just a reminder from your friendly
neighborhood Hungry Girl.

Spotted on Shelves...
Dreyer's/Edy's Limited Edition Apple Pie Frozen Dairy Dessert - Heads up,
peeps! This stuff is NOT part of the Slow Churned line, but the stats are too
good, and it tastes TOO delicious not to mention! Even though it's not billed
as "light" or "low" in any way, this delicious pie crust 'n apple packed stuff
has just 120 calories and 4g fat per half cup. Stock up now, 'cuz it'll be gone
Dunkin' Donuts Coffee - Everyone says Dunkin' Donuts has the best coffee
on the planet because it's true. And now that awesome coffee is finally
available at a supermarket near you. This is super-exciting to us since we've
been ordering it online forever.
Newman's Own All Natural Marinades - In Lemon Pepper, Mesquite with Lime,
Teriyaki, and Herb & Roasted Garlic, these are low in calories and packed
with awesome flavor. And salt-stickers will LOVE the Mesquite with Lime --
it's got WAY less sodium than most marinades. Any advice from Paul
himself? "Pour it on. Slather it all over. Let it soak." Yes, sir!!
Cereals Are HOT This Week...
Get $10 to Spend on Jeans - Special K is challenging YOU to drop up to a
jeans size and then buy new stuff that fit you better! Yep, just take the
Special K Challenge, and they'll give you a voucher for ten dollars that you
can spend on new pants. We LOVE new pants!!! (And Special K's not too bad
either.) Click here for all the details.
YOU on a Cereal Box - Think you'd look all cute 'n snazzy on the front of a
cereal box? Think you belong there? Prove it! Curves Foods is looking for
REAL women to share their inspirational weight management stories through
their "Real Change, Real Women" contest. If you win, your mug (and
probably the rest of you!) will appear on cereal boxes throughout the U.S.
Your mom would be so proud...
Quaker Has Heart - This is GREAT. And simple. The folks at Quaker will
donate a dollar to the Larry King Cardiac Foundation for every person who
pledges to take their Smart Heart Challenge (up to $250,000). The challenge
is simple. Have your cholesterol tested, and then for 30 days eat oatmeal,
limit saturated fats & badness, and exercise a bunch -- then test your
cholesterol again. They say it'll be lower. We think this challenge is awesome
and would LOVE to see Quaker donate a quarter of a million bucks to a great
cause. So sign up!!!

Can watching TV help you lose weight? Apparently so! A recent study
published in the Journal of Health Communication found that people are likely
to improve their eating habits and take steps to become healthier as a result
of watching TV shows featuring either characters being counseled about
eating better or hosts talking about health-related things. Looks like being a
couch potato may not be so bad for you after all. Just choose your shows
wisely. In other words -- more Oprah, less Emeril. ***Are you a kitchen
klutz? You may want to check out startcooking.com. They have step-by-step
videos that show you how to do even the most basic cooking techniques, like
boiling an egg or thawing ground beef. Fun (and helpful) stuff! ***Ooooh, a
popular candymaker (Too Tarts) has unveiled a special sugar-free, fat-free
melted-ice cream-flavored spray candy that has just 10 calories a serving. It
comes in Blueberry, Strawberry, and Banana Split. Keep an eye out for it!
That's all we've got. HG out!
