    Anybody can grill a chicken breast and pour salad into a bowl. Start there. Kick your sugar/salt habit and avoid any meals that come in a box.

    Are you doing intervals on your runs? Try sprinting at 90+% for ~1 block, jog/walk until you get your wind back, repeat.

    (Note that I'm not speaking as an "Ignite Expert," but in terms of general health. So, take my comments as you will. ;) )

    Yeah, Jiff Natural seems a lot better. That glycemic index you hear about is a real thing, so backing off on the sugars/starches and letting those good fats help you feel fuller is always a good move.

    Pigging out on anything? Not a good move. :)

    jorn answered the Question: What can I drink on Ignite?

    You show a great example of something so many of us struggle with: Using food as a form of happiness. In this case, that soda is something that brings you joy and comfort. While finding healthier substitutes is absolutely fantastic, also focus on the psychology of it all. There are plenty of other things in life to be happy about.

    Don't just fight your cravings. Understand them and redirect them. :)

    That sure would be nice... and seemingly logical. Sadly, no...

    jorn answered the Question: Is peanut butter allowed in ignite?

    Andy's right: Most commercial/popular peanut butter is LOADED with sugars; they're pretty much a Snickers bar put through a blender.

    I'm a fan of Smart Balance. Just read the labels carefully. YMMV

    I can tell you that once you are used to eating the less sugary versions and you go back a few months later and taste Jiff/Skippy/etc., you'll find yourself saying, "Yech! I used to eat this train-wreck of sugar?"

    Oh, and friends don't let friends eat any peanut butter labelled "low fat." ;)

    jorn answered the Question: can you use seasonings like salt

    If you're like most Americans, I'll place a bet that you're probably consuming too much sodium as it is. (We eat waaaaay more than we think we do.)

    Your question was a bit vague, but I'll try to answer it by saying:

    Salt some foods a tiny but to taste if you must, but you are better off weaning your states buds off the salt. It can be done, and you'll be thankful for it.

    jorn answered the Question: Are rice noodles allowed on ignite

    Rice noodles are nutritionally equivalent to white rice... lotsa starchy carbs and nothing else. Apply that to your nutritional data, if that helps.

    Your question was a bit vague on the "..ok to eat.." front. Define "ok" please. :)

    jorn answered the Question: is the mobile app any good?

    DB makes several apps, but I'm going to make a leap and assume you're talking about the main Daily Burn app with the workouts. :)

    For me, it's the primary way I access workouts. I dial up the routines on my iPad and push them to the AppleTV. It's great when it works, and frustrating as [redacted] when I get pauses/dropouts in the videos.
