These breadsticks are "Grissini Torinese", the way they make them in Turin, the capital of the Piedmont region of northern Italy. Thinner than traditional style breadsticks, these hand-rolled Torinese Breadsticks are about the diameter of a drinking straw, and every inch is crisp, airy and covered with a thin, crunchy, satisfying brown crust. They are perfect for the low-calorie (VLCD) phase of the HCG program (Phase 2). You are allowed up to two breadsticks/day. Each breadstick contains only .167 grams of fat, 2.44 carbs, and 12.22 calories. There are 27 breadsticks/box so each box should last about 13 days. Two boxes will be more than enough for the 23-day program.
