Thank you.

The good news is you are all finding the exceptions to my
guidelines which is helping understand how to better apply them.

As with any guidelines, there is always exceptions. What is missing
from the video, which will be on the full DVD set, are the Q a As
where i address these issues.

Everything must be looked at in context and in context of the total

So, to anwer you question... You want to buy a soymilk, so go the
section and apply my guidelines. For arguments sake, lets say they
ALL fail.

Then, try and find the ones that are closest to my guidelines and
in the areas that are most important to you personally,be more
diligent to the guidelines. . So if sodium is most important, try to
find the one that doesnt go over on sodium

>>My Kirkland Signature Vanilla Soy Milk fails your test. It has 100
calories with 30 from fat, the sodium just barely survivees at 95mg

Thats not bad at all. Remember I choose 20% but on an occasional
product 30% is "dangerous". :)

The sodium is great.

> but it lists evaporated cane juice as the second ingredient. I use
about 1-1.5 cups a day since I'm a nursing mom trying to insure
adequate calcium.

Being second, doesnt always rule it out. The "weakest" of my
guideline, as i say in the presentation, is sugar because sometimes
if there are not many ingedients, sugars may not be far down the
list, but still on exist in small amounts. If the list is small, there is
far to go, in reagrd to "down" the list.

How many grams of sugar does it have per serving and how many
calories per serving.

Also, if you can list the ingredients, that will help also.

>>Do I need to seek out the unsweetened variety or low fat variety
or both--what's your take? (I like how cheap Costco's is compared
to other places!)

Anothe costco fan!!!

No, again, this is not going to be a food that is a mainstay in your
diet, and its being used as a vehicle to get in the calcium, Vit D,
B12 etc.

Hope that helps. If not, list the ingedients and grams of sugars and
I will try to help you more

In health
