Chocoholic Fix
The Idea: "A suggestion for those who crave chocolate: Get fat-free, sugar-free instant chocolate pudding. Add a little sweetener and vanilla. Mix as usual. You can add fat-free Cool Whip, and bran if you like crunch." –Linda Freeman, Claremore, Oklahoma

The Rating: Try Again

Katz Says: "I'm not too enthusiastic about this one. I'd rather see you enjoy a small piece of heart-healthy, intensely satisfying dark chocolate (with at least 60 percent cocoa), which is rich in antioxidants. That's better than trying to fill up on all these artificial flavors and sweeteners. The calories in the real chocolate can easily be reduced elsewhere in your diet. I think that would be a better strategy for health and weight control."
