More Americans Ditching Diets
Recent studies show that Americans are slowly changing their eating habits
for the better as opposed to dieting. In other words, theyre living their
lives HG style! Thats one of the reasons Kraft decided to rename its South
Beach Diet line South Beach Living. Were totally on board with this. The SB
Living line features a SLEW of new products, including TWO you can get free
samples of right now -- the Granola Clusters (each portion-controlled pack
has 130 calories, 4g fat, 6g fiber and a POINTS® value of 2*), and the Tide
Me Over Drink Mix (each serving contains 30 calories, no fat, 5g fiber and a

even more for us, like reduce blood pressure, weight gain and the risk of
type 2 diabetes. Click here to read more about why oatmeal ROCKS. Then

options, the most impressive being their GRILLED Chicken Strips! A four-strip
serving has only about 180 calories and 2g fat (POINTS® value 4*). But go
easy on the teriyaki sauce it's served with (that adds about 60 calories per
oz.). Also keep an eye out for the company's new "Smart Choice" logo,
which'll point you in the direction of their lighter options. Thats all weve got.
