Foods

Okay I admit it... I don't always eat the healthiest foods, although I try. Sometimes fruit just isn't enough when you want sweets. I'm at 1277 for the day and I eat 1500 on a sedentary day. I guess I'll have to go running so I can have a good sized dinner.

Has anyone had cookie dough cravings and found something to replace it? lol.

i dont know about you but the 100 calorie pack cookies do fix my sugar cravings...

maybe they should make 100 calorie pack of cookie dough. hehe =P
hmmm I don't think that would be enough cookie dough... unless they made a new recipe that's lower cal. lol
aww I love cookie dough (cake mix batter is good too :p)...I guess it's just a matter of eating it on a higher calorie day - unless someone knows of a low-cal way to make it :)

I can't even think of eating cookie dough without getting ill... I think I got sick off eating home-made cookie dough once because it was raw ingredients. Although, when I'm having a sweet-tooth attack, I have been grabbing an apple or a banana. Apple with peanut butter seems to be a crowd fav around here.

 On another note, not to get too personal, but I looked at your pictures and saw you wanted to get down in the 130s in weight... you must be really tall because the pictures where you post your weight you look very thin already. That and given the amount of calories you seem to be allowing yourself, i say go ahead and have a spoonful of cookie dough once in awhile... you can probably afford it.

Yeah I'm 5'10. I have lots of fat on my body that I'm trying to get rid of. I'm really trying not to care about the weight and look at my measurements more. I just don't want to jiggle when I walk anymore. Lol you put "...given the amount of calories you seem to be allowing yourself, i say go ahead..." That makes me feel like I'm allowing myself too many calories. Hmm. This stuff is so confusing. One day I think I've got it, then the other I'm not sure.

i. love. cookiedough.
oooh I know I know!  Edy's Slow Churned Cookie Dough ice cream is great for a cookie dough fix! Only 130 cals for a half cup.

 I meant that to mean I didn't think you were eating enough calories... maybe I wasn't reading it right - seemed like you were shooting for less than 1500 - at your height and age, I think that's low. I'm no fitness expert though.

 As for the jiggles, my girlfriend is going through the same thing - she's tall and thin, but feels fat and isn't as tight as she'd like. She runs a lot, but it's not helping. I am getting her to start weightlifting. Muscle on your body will increase your metabolism and tighten you up. In other words - muscle burns away fat.

 I know some girls are afraid to work out and build muscle because they don't want to look manly, but it really takes a lot of work to look manly if you're a woman... more than one would think. Plus, if you get more muscular than you would like, just stop working out on weights for a few weeks or so and it'll go away.

You can try this, altho i dont know how good it is.
1/4 c oatbran (or oatmeal ground up) soaked in water for a few hours, with 1/2 tsp vanilla and splenda to taste. Its all pasty like cookiedough. Stick it in the fridge and it hardens. it might not be super low cal, but its healthier and more filling (full of fibre) I guess you could add choc chips
I used to do that, because it's a horrible habit my mom taught me, but when I learned how bad uncooked white flour is for you, and that there is some risk in eating the raw eggs, it no longer seemed so yummy, but just gross.  red herring's oatbran idea sounds pretty good.   I dunno.  The only thing I ever got insane cravings for was nachos...

I LOVE cookie dough!  The only kind of cookie dough I eat is the kind that you buy premade/ready to bake.  That way, there's no problem with the raw eggs (they've been pastuerized). 

So, because I could down a whole package at once, I've been keeping it in the bottom/back of the freezer.  I know it's there if I really need some, but usually, by the time I've gotten to it, and factored in the time needed to thaw it, I don't need it anymore!

Lol I actually get the worst stuff probably possible for me. I absolutely LOVE papa murphy's cookie dough. I can't stand the stuff in the premade things... they taste fake to me. Putting it in the freezer is a good idea though :)

Lol I go running a bunch too and it's not really working. And I too avoid weights because I don't want to get bulky. I was doing a lower body/abs class and I got so thin and it was awesome. Then I started taking a spinning class along with a weights class and I got wayyyy too much muscle from it. I stopped them because of it. I think I'm gonna just try to to steps or something

Maybe you were using too much weight?  Upper body I only use 5 lb weights and also hold two of them (one in each hand) when doing lunges and squats (really good for the bum).  It is important to use some sort of resistance training, otherwise you risk loosing muscle mass and are left with a thin but still soft body.  Can also use ankle weights when running/walking and this will strenghten muscle while keeping it long and lean. 

As far as the cookie dough goes I would just treat yourself to a little of it once or twice a month, everyone has their one thing they won't let go and shouldn't have to!  Good luck!

MetRx has a meal replacement bar called chocolate chip cookie dough. Doesn't taste the same, and one of two things could happen. You could: 1. like it and find it a good meal replacement, or 2. hate it and look at cookie dough differently (I loveee regular cookie dough)because whenever i have that craving, I think straight to the MetRx bar, and think of something else to eat Laughing

 

The bar has only 370 calories, 50 from fat (low sodium of 190mg), but has 50g of carbs, and 25g of sugars (with 28g of protein). It also has a good amount of vitamins and nutrients! If you do decide along the path of trying it out, make sure you have at least 16 (preferably 20+) fluid ounces of water with it, just like a regular meal. Good luck!

Weight Watchers Smart Ones meals has a cookie dough sundae you could try. It's in the frozen food section at your local grocery. I haven't tried that one but their strawberry shortcake is to die for and only 140 cals! I'm asuming the sundae is about the same cals.
The clif z bar (130 calories) chocolate chip tastes sooo good.  ITs goey and chocolately with oats in it and for a little treat, it is very good and tastes similar to cookie dough!
I have the same problem as you! I always bake freshed cookies and end up probably eating hundreds of calories in dough. Oh well:/ but Yes i was goingto say, the clif z bar chocolate chip flavor is AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG holy moles! my mom gets me the variety box online orsomething with peanut butter, choc chip and choc brownie. personally all of them are amazing but chocolate chip actually does taste like dough. i am going to try the weight watchers onse
Try a chocolate chip cookie dough Balance Bar- AMAZING!!!!! (I love protien bars though, so that could just be me....) Its 200cal, but at least its got seom good stuff in it...

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
