Hungry Girl Today: 08.16.07
Heads up, chocolate FREAKS (this means you)! Check out HG's super-duper,
cocoa-rific swaps. Mmmmmmmmm!
What You Crave: A Chocolate Ice Cream Sundae
(400 - 900 calories, 20 - 45g fat)
Chew This Instead: A round chocolate ice cream sandwich (like the ones by
Skinny Cow or WW) with Fat Free Reddi-wip and sprinkles (approx. 160
calories, 3g fat)
HG Bottom Line: Don't shove your face into a giant sundae. This fun swap is
almost as satisfying, and it could save you more than 700 calories and crazy
amounts of fat!

What You Crave: A Slice of Chocolate Cake or a Large Fudge Brownie
(400 - 600 calories, 15 - 25g fat)
Chew This Instead: A Vitalicious chocolate-flavored VitaTop or VitaBrownie
(100 calories, 1.5 - 2g fat)
HG Bottom Line: Want to inhale a hunk of cake or a chewy brownie? Just say
NOPE to the full-fat stuff, and dig into a chocolatey Vita instead. Each one has
just 100 calories and a tiny amount of fat, saving you calories in the
hundreds and oodles of fat grams. And since they're fiber-packed, you'll feel
full after just one normal-sized portion (sorry, fat fudge brownies). Yes!
What You Crave: A Big Fat Chocolate Shake
(600 - 900 calories, 30 - 40g fat)
Slurp This Instead: HG's Frozen Fudge Chip Freeze (135 calories, 4.5g fat)
HG Bottom Line: Whip out your blender and a few HG staples, and you can
mix up a homemade shake that would save you HUNDREDS of calories and
DOZENS of fat grams! Complete with whipped topping, it's practically as
satisfying as the real thing (we promise).
What You Crave: Ooey Gooey Individual Chocolate Candies
(75 - 120 calories, 5 - 9g fat per piece)
Chew This Instead: Chocolite (30 calories, 2g fat per piece)
HG Bottom Line: Don't break open that box of chewy, nut-packed chocolates.
Rip open a pack of Chocolite chocolate candy (it comes in flavors like Crispy
Caramel and Almond Fudge!). It's sugar-free, delicious and has just 30
calories and 2 grams of fat per piece. That's less than HALF the calories and
a mere fraction of the fat. Holy moly! (Pssst... be careful not to overeat these
things! Too much of ANY candy = no good.)
What You Crave: A Nestlé Crunch Bar
(220 calories, 12g fat)
Chew This Instead: A CocoaVia Crispy Chocolate Bar (90 calories, 5g fat)
HG Bottom Line: It may be smaller, but the dark chocolate CocoaVia bar is
every bit as satisfying. It's packed with light, airy crispies, and it's loaded
with heart-healthy cocoa flavanols and antioxidants. Can't beat that!
CHEW ON THIS:
This Sunday, August 19th, is National Soft Ice Cream Day. If you live on the
East Coast, dig in to some Tasti D-Lite. In other parts of the country, go for
Wow Cow! (not quite as good, but almost!).
