  1. All the info you'd ever want to know about that product can be found right here: http://www.weightcontrol.quakeroatmeal.com/ The banana flavor is excellent, haven't tried the cinnamon yet.
  2. Use this article to help determine the intensity level for your workouts: WW Article on Exercise Intensity
  3. Google it http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=improve+running+speed

    TVP Question?

    It's impossible to say on yours. Some is very low fat, some has no fat. Here's the info on one kind with some fat: http://www.earth-friendly.com/tvp-nutrition.php3 There's plenty of other sites at Google.
  5. Never tried it, can't vouch for it: Honey: 1 cup Substitute: 1 1/4 cups graunlated sugar plus 1/4 cup water That as it stands isn't sugar free of course but Splenda might work in its place. However, pourable Splenda isn't caloire free for that large of an amount. A cup of it has 96 calories. From Land o Lakes: Honey 1 1/4 cups sugar plus 1/3 cup liquid (use whatever liquid is called for in the recipe) can be substituted for 1 cup honey. Again, you might try Splenda instead of sugar.

    Fruit Salad

    Best guess is a generic sampling of "fruit salads" and coming up with an average of 2 points. If you make your own and have the nutrition labels, use that. Always use the food labels when available.

  8. In addition to the suggestions already given, give bench step-ups a try. With the bad knee, use a shorter step until that leg becomes stronger. It's a simple move. Start on the ground and step up. Or start on top of the step and step down. 12 to 16 reps per side for 2 or 3 sets is plenty. That targets that little area between butt cheek and top of thigh. That's the famous "fanny lifter" move from the Firm workouts. Stepping off to the side will target the inner thigh and quads. They use a 14" step but with a bad knee, use lower and build up to it. They also add weights (dumbbells on shoulders or held in hand) to challenge you even more. They also don't do the sets back to back. You might do one set then go work a different body part, come back for another set, then go do something else sort of thing. Hurt one of my knees almost a year ago, took a long time to build back up to using the 14" step and I did it the same way I'm suggesting to you. Start lower and build up to higher. Running never hurt the knee but deep squats and this move on the step sure did My hat is certainly off to you for the amount of activity you're doing. You're looking fantastic, Hanna. :bcbsalute
  9. How quick? Open cans of chili beans or cook a pound of beans from the dry state? Check out the Mess Hall, there are hundreds of delicious, quick and easy to prepare recipes of all types.
  10. Morningstar brand for my money.

  12. Nope, the Week 1 book is specific on the oils. The margaine doesn't count towards the two teaspoons.
  13. http://www.barleyfoods.org/recipes.html Should have the info you seek
  14. Give this thread a look, might be some great tips and suggestions you can use: http://www.healthdiscovery.net/forums/showthread.php?t=61803
  15. Baked oatmeal is a favorite along with Cybergranny's Energy Bars. Both are easy to prepare well ahead of time, freeze well, can be removed from the freezer the night before or taken out that morning. Should be thawed and ready to eat by the time you get where you're going. The Applesauce Oatmeal Bars found in the Core recipe section are also great and easy to take along. A container of yogurt with a plastic spoon would be portable although not so easy to do one handed if you're driving rather than riding.
  16. 1 part grain, 2 parts water. I never have water left behind that needs drained off. How are you making yours?
  17. To my way of thinking, if it's 1 point worth of banana, I count it as 1 fruit, 2 points would be 2 fruits. Banana: 1 small (6" to 6 7/8" long)..............1 point 1 medium (7" to 7 7/8" long).............2 points 1 large (8" to 8 7/8" long)..............2 points 1 extra large (9" or longer).............2 points sliced, 1 cup............................2 points
  18. With baking season fast approaching, noticed the other day when food gathering that Wal-Mart has a fresh stock of "Parchment Paper" in the fast action alley with all the baking stuff. I use parchment paper always to nuke these. After it cools a bit, you peel it right off. No mess, no stick, and no plate to wash afterwards. :bcbsalute
  19. You'll find horseback riding along with a huge long list of activities at this site: http://www.caloriesperhour.com/index_burn.html Enter your personal stats, swap 100 calories burned for each AP. You might also get some useful info from this WW article: Exercise Intensity Levels
  20. You'll eat when you feel better. If you can't eat, then you can't. Allow the body to recover, rest, drink lots of liquids, see your doctor if you don't improve.
  21. You don't say how many servings, this is for the entire dish: 16 Oz frozen blueberries 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 cup white flour 1/2 cup splenda 2 Tsp Cinnamon 1 Tsp nutmeg 3/4 cup 1% milk 1 tsp Vanilla extract 1/2 cup light margarine Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 1220 Calories; 52g Fat (37.3% calories from fat); 23g Protein; 174g Carbohydrate; 25g Dietary Fiber; 7mg Cholesterol; 1206mg Sodium. Exchanges: 6 1/2 Grain(Starch); 4 Fruit; 1/2 Non-Fat Milk; 10 Fat.
  22. There should be a "sell by" date stamped on the container. Every time I buy it, the date is usually a year or more ahead of the time I'm buying it.
  23. Buyer's Guide and Residential Reviews found here: http://www.treadmilldoctor.com/Pages/BESTBUYPAGES.htm Excellent advice from those that repair them.
