Gelatin won’t directly help you lose weight but it will help in an indirect way – by controlling your appetite.
Alternate Gelatin Preparation:
Cut the sugar free sweetener down to 1/4 and use fruit juice instead of water.
Sugar free Jello has about 2 calories per gram, and not much else. It is a liquid that feels like
Here is a short list of high fiber fruit to add to maximize the fullness:
Apple weighing (~125 grams) whole with skin (a.k.a. USDA commodity food A343) has 3 grams of fiber, 65 calories and 13 grams of sugar
Avocados are technically a high fiber fruit, but actually, they’re a gross vegetable and you shouldn’t eat them because I don’t like them.
Bananas have a lot of fiber and potassium. The potassium is important because it is hard to find potassium in foods in general.
Bananas are less than 3% dietary fiber by weight, but 1 medium banana (118 g) gives you 3 grams of dietary fiber, 108 calories, 15 grams of sugar and a gram of protein
Berries generally have the most fiber.
1 cup, or 148 grams of whole blackberries have 8 grams of fiber.
Only 7 grams of sugar and 65 calories
Guava where are you, a rainforrest!? Anyway, if you come accross some guava gelatin you should definitely partake cause the guava has 9 grams of fiber per 165 gram cup of the flesh.
2 g fat, only 15g sugar, and 4 grams of protein making it an unusually nutritionally balanced fruit. 1 medium guava should have 55 grams of flesh, after removing the refuse. They are only about .05 USD in the amazon basin, but I suggest you shop at the grocery.
Kiwis have about 2.5 grams each without skin. If you leave the skin on it imparts some tartness. I suggest super thin slices with the peel for double the dietary fiber.
Oranges are a member of citrus fruits, making them automatically delicious. There are many varieties of orange though they are all relatively similar in nutritional profile.
Pears (USDA commodity food A435) 1 small pear (148 grams) has 5 grams of fiber and only 85 calories. Pears should only be eaten if you cannot acquire or chew apples. A small to medium plum weighs about 70 grams.
Prunes (or plums, if you aren’t 90) have
Another thing you can do is to add ground psyllium seed husk in a layer. It forms a gellatenous paste when a small amount of water is added to the dry powder. You can alternatively add juice of any kind (apple works very well here) By scoring the top of sliced jello slightly, you can add a make it into tasty layers.
Spread some apple juice husk meal over a flat freshly scored surface of the whole fruit gelatin and stack the slices lick brick and mortar. It helps to add progressively thinner layers and not use more than 3 layers at once. If you feel like it, use toothpicks to hold the layers in place. Frilly toothpicks do provide structural advantages here.
Adding meringue or whipped cream can really alter the texture of the “mortar”, I suggest whipped cream. Use your imagination!
Meringue (buy it freeze dried if possible) is sugar free. When it comes to sugar free whipped cream
