ThinSlim Foods Low Carb Low Fat Squares
The sweet, moist, dense taste and texture of a freshly-baked muffin now comes in a low calorie, low fat, and low carb square. Is ThinSlim foods’ new square diet heaven?
When it comes to desserts and snacking, tt’s not too often that you can triangulate low carb, low cal, and low fat together with great taste and texture. In an almost mystical new turn, however, ThinSlim has manage to create the ultimate diet dessert with their new squares.
The seemingly nondescript name is in many ways perfectly-suited for these new desserts, since they really cannot be co-opted by any one school of diet: the low carbers will love them because each one is just 2 grams of net carbs. The low cal people will be blown away by the fact that they are only 40 calories each. And low fat gurus will appreciate the mere 1 gram of fat per serving.
But all dieters will appreciate their taste.
Snack cake manufacturers like Hostess, Little Debbie, Bimbo, and even the Philly-based Tastykake have all dreamed of crafting a diet square like this. All of them have tried, but the taste and texture never live up to expectation. ThinSlim’s new square, however, seems to capture everything you’d want in a diet snack cake while still preserving the fundamentals of whatever diet you subscribe to.
Currently, the ThinSlim squares come in three flavors, almond, banana, and peanut butter. They are most definitely worth a try, and are 100% guaranteed by ThinSlim not to raise blood glucose levels, citing that all of the nutritionals have been lab tested and verified.

Whether you’ve tried a low carb diet before and fallen off of the wagon, or you’ve dieted before but never tried low carb, 2012 is the year to make a low carb New Year’s resolution. Here’s where to begin:
Every year, dieting and losing weight tops Americans’ list of New Year’s resolutions. The revelry of the holidays — and all of the fattening delicacies it brings with it — combined with the pitfalls of the typical low carb diet, usually leave people feeling and looking heavier this time of year. And yet, the New Year’s resolution diet quickly becomes a viscous circle — a revolving door weight loss and weight gain. By this time next year, you’ll most likely be the same weight or even heavier, and the only thing you’ll have to show for it is a few months of starving yourself.
Time to turn your New Year’s resolution into a diet revolution.
The “Diet Revolution” was the term coined by Dr. Atkins, the nutritionalist who first popularized the low carb diet back in the 1960s. He wrote several books about his Diet Revolution, and revealed that the big problem in Americans’ diets is not fat or calories, but rather carbs and sugar. He argued that modern man’s diet has shifted from a high-protein diet to a high-carbohydrate diet, and that our metabolisms are not capable of handling all of the extra carbs and sugar we consume. Thus, the only way to get back to a healthy weight is to switch from a modern high-carb diet to a more primal low carb diet.
I emphasize the term “primal,” because it has quickly become the new popular term in low carb dieting. Atkins himself never used that term, though he did talk about primitive man, and how their diet was healthier than the diet we currently engage in. Whether you’re looking to start a low carb or “primal” diet for your New Year’s Resolution, here are a few starting off tips: (more…)

Sci-Fit Fat Free Beef Stix
There is something inescapingly funny about the term “meat stick.” Lewd notions aside, there is something primal about the idea of “meat on a stick,” as it conjures up early man gnawing a fire-charred leg ‘o beast. Interestingly enough, primal diets — which are essentially Atkins-esque — are becoming evermore popular, and as a result, these new “primal dieters” are in search of new, tasty ways to get their meat on.
While the classic Slim Jim has led the way in terms of meat snacks for decades, healthy dieters are looking for a meat-based low carb snack that is a bit more dialed in to their “primal” sensitivities. Enter these new meat sticks:
First up is the Sci-Fit Fat Free Beef Stix, which essentially offers a higher-quality alternative to the Slim Jim. The Sci-Fit Fat Free Beef Stix come in both Teriyaki and Black Pepper varieties, are truly fat free and low carb — each stick is just 1 gram of carbs. In addition, the ingredients list thankfully doesn’t include any MSG, a common ingredient in Slim Jims and other mass produced meat sticks.
Ostrim Natural Beef Snack
Ostrim also makes a nice Natural Beef Snack as well. Theirs is a high-protein meat stick that are very low in fat and USDA inspected, guaranteeing a true and correct nutritional profile of quality and wholesomeness. Their ingredients are very readable, including just Beef, Water, Sea Salt, Corn Starch, Natural Spices, Turbinado Sugar, Dehydrated Garlic, Natural Flavorings (Celery Powder), and Lactic Acid Starter Culture. Ostrim offers several great flavors, such as its original flavor, spicy pepper, and teriyaki.
Ostrim Meat Sticks
If you want to take a walk on the wild side and try a meat stick that is not beef, then how about ostrich? Ostrim Meat Sticks are incredible great-tasting ostrich meat sticks, and offer the same level of nutrition and low carb snacking goodness. The Ostrim MEat Sticks comes in a variety of great flavors as well, such as barbeque, natural, pepper, and teriyaki.

Power Pak Pudding & Pure Protein Gelatin Protein Snack — heavy of taste, protein, and the letter “P.”
If you peek around the pudding and Jello section of your supermarket, you’re bound to notice that a vast majority of pudding and Jello snacks on the market today are sugar free. That being said, none of them are really tailored for low carb or gluten free dieters — they are really designed for low calories dieters. If you are looking for pudding or gelatin that is custom-tailored for low carb or gluten free diets, then you’ve come to the right place.
We recently added two new dessert products at Linda’s Diet Delites: MHP Power Pak Pudding and Pure Protein Gelatin Protein Snack. Once you get past all of the Ps in those two product names, you begin to recognize how these two desserts make perfect snacks for even the strictest dieter.
MHP Power Pak Pudding
MHP Power Pak Pudding is a really interesting product, in that it offers a truly high-protein, low carb, low cal option. It has a whopping 30 grams of protein, only 190 calories and zero sugar. And because it tastes so good, Power Pak Pudding really is one of the most satisfying low carb healthy snacks that we’ve come across in a long while.
It also has no sugar alcohols, which is nice.
Pure Protein Gelatin Protein Snack
If you’re looking for a zanier low carb snack, we have the low carb solution to Jello. Pure Protein Gelatin Protein Snack is as fun and tasty as Jello, but with much better nutritionals for the low carb dieter. Pure Protein is unique is that it offers a lot of protein in a snack that you don’t usually associate with protein: 23 grams to be exact, plus only 1% DV of carbs for low carb lifestyles. The best part is that, in spite of having NO added sugar and NO aspartame, it still tastes great!
Pure Protein Gelatin Protein Snacks come in three packs, and are offered in two flavors: tropical punch and cherry.
Pudding and Jello are two desserts that low carb dieters often assume have to be left off of the menu. But these two new products allow you to enjoy a satisfying snack without the guilt of breaking your low carb diet.
Interested in purchasing these products? Linda’s Diet Delites carry them both! Be sure to check out Power Pak Pudding & Pure Protein Gelatin Protein Snack on our website now!

Three Bakers Gluten Free Bread
Looking for gluten free bread? Three Bakers Gluten Free bread comes in just about every shape, style, and configuration you can imagine, offering a great taste and texture for the gluten free dieter.
Early attempts at low carb and gluten free breads were pretty hit and miss, with many early adopters of these breads resorting to toasting these breads to a virtual crisp in order to make them palatable. With this in mind, the gluten free dieter has to feel encourage by Three Bakers’ bold proclamation about their gluten free bread: “The staple bread for every Gluten Free household. No need to toast to enjoy!”
Three Bakers gluten free bread is a full product line that is designed to completely replace all of your bread needs, without sacrificing taste or texture. Their 20 oz. gluten free bread loaves are 100% all natural, and are an excellent source of fiber, with 5 grams per serving. They also contain no soy or dairy, (but they are made using eggs).
Their three gluten free bread loaf varies come in white, whole grain rye, and perhaps one of the more interesting bread varieties that we’ve come across lately: “7 ancient grains.” To be sure, 5- and 7-grain bread has become popular over the years. But Three Bakers has taken the 7-grain approach to a new level, crafting it “from 7 ancient whole grains: Amaranth, Hemp, Quinoa, Teff, Sorghum, Flax & Millet.” Quinoa, in particular, is becoming increasingly popular in diet and nutrition circles for a variety of health benefits.
Even better is that Three Bakers offers more than just gluten free bread loaves — they are also doing hot dog and hamburger buns and even hoagie rolls.
If you are looking for a reliable gluten free bread line that can replace all of your bread needs without sacrificing on quality and taste, Three Bakers gluten free bread is definitely worth a try.
Looking for Three Bakers gluten free breads online? We carry Three Bakers gluten free loaves, hot dog buns, hamburger buns, and hoagie rolls. Take a look at our complete selection and order today!
