|Product||Product||Comments||Where to buy|
|BBQ Sauce||Guy's "Award Winning" Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce||"Smokey Bacon" is the best flavor.. Hot is a close second! Only 40 calories and 10 carbs in tablespoon!||Netrition.com|
|Protein Powder||Dymatize ISO 100 Chocolate||Some of the best stuff out there. Great taste if you mix it with almond milk. Great way to get the protein you need!||Amazon.com|
|Protein Bars||Quest Bars||GREAT macros on these and a huge variety of flavors. Some people absolutely love them, and some people don't like the texture.||GNC or Amazon.com|
|Low-Carb Pasta||Pasta Zero||Made from a plant root -- some people can't stand the texture, other people LOVE them. Cook them with some asian spices and you've got a 15-calorie meal!!!||Walmart|
|Ice Cream||Halo Top Ice Cream||Sweetened with Stevia, this stuff is off the charts good, and does NOT taste like most "diet ice cream". 240 calories in an ENTIRE PINT!!!! Huge fan of the chocolate-chip-mint flavor||Harmons -- or use their store finder|
|Chicken Jerky||Chef's Cut Buffalo-Flavored Chicken Jerky||175 calories, 2.5g fat, 5g carbs, and 30g of protein in the entire bag. And dang.. this stuff is yummy||Their Website|

|Chocolate Syrup, Carmel Syrup||Walden Farms||Zero calories. Not super great by itself, but used as an ingredient with other things (like added to a protein shake, or used to flavor oatmeal, or hot chocolate) it's pretty good!! (Note that most everything else from Walden Farms is pretty nasty).||High-end grocery stores have it sometimes. You can also order online|
|Maple Syrup / Blueberry Syrup||Walden Farms||Zero calories. Great to flavor pancakes and oatmeal!! (Note that most everything else from Walden Farms is pretty nasty).||High end grocery stores have it sometimes. You can also order online|
|Almond Milk||.. Any Brand||Make sure you get the unsweetened / original stuff.. but if you like dairy, want something to add to your protein, hot chocolate, coffee, etc, almond milk makes an incredible alternative to regular milk.||Any grocery store.|
