Those sandwich thins only make me crave real good hearty bread... Sad

I lost 44 pounds on low carb but was unable to sustain it...has anyone tried the Foodlovers' Diet as seen on infomercials?  It sounds too good to be true, but sort of made sense to me...eating proteins with carbs, eating more meals but littler portions...

Always, did you follow the plan where when you lost the weight you slowly add back in carbs until you find the number where you can maintain? I've never done that before, or had the mindset that I was ok with giving up most carbs forever. I'm just so happy to be losing, I've literally lost the same 10 pounds over and over the last couple years while just counting calories.

nope--the PLAN did not fail, I failed to follow instructions...I got whiny as well because I wanted to eat what I wanted to eat and still expected it to work...I guess I am like a lot of people who want to lose weight and get healthy...I want it to just happen and just work with no effort...

I need to once again get prepared psychologically since I know how to lose weight...I just hate doing all that I need to do... Sad

I just googled coconut flour pancakes.  I read 3 or 4 recipes and picked the one with the least eggs, and then I inserted the leavening agent from another recipe (the one with the least eggs had both baking soda and baking powder I didn't have BP so I used the measure for the B soda from recipe 2).  I also added the largest amount of cinnamon I could stand as I love the stuff.

I'm actually grain free mostly.  It's just easier to say gluten free these days.  I'm super allergic to grasses and since grains are grasses they all give me one kind of trouble or another, mostly to do with mood.  If I eat rice too often I get very depressed and slow.  If I eat wheat, my sinus hurt for days.  Oats give me stomach aches, and corn is the quickest way to make me pointlessly angry....for days.  I just walk around with my teeth gritted and snapping at everyone.  And if I do eat any corn, I fall into a sort of coma state about 1/2 an hour after wards.  Life feels like I'm just watching a TV show I'm not involved in.  Slack jawed and drooling nearly.  It can last into the next day.  If they ever stop making eggs and cans of tuna fish (which may happen in my life time...) I will probably starve to death Grin  I thank the gods for potatoes.

I take PGX when I want to loose faster then I am.  It's a water soluble fiber and it does all kinds of cool things for you.  I started to take it to help with my blood sugars (insulin dependent type 1 diabetic here) but it can also lower cholesterol.  It's expensive, but it does help..me at least.  Be warned though, the pills are HUGE!  I mean like the size of a chubby baby's thumb.  I was at Costco the other day and they were giving out samples and had a pretty good deal on them

Suerreal--I wonder if some of my fatigue might just be from eating some of those things...I feel pretty listless when I eat white rice (a Japanese staple!) and corn!  I am going to not eat those for a week and see how I feel...thanks for sharing...

Oh i am so in that club..

sureal that is a PITA that you are reactive to so many foods, but so good that you know exactly how you react and what they do to you. My life tends to be a bit of an emotional roller coaster, so it would be hard to separate out the effects of food/shit happening...but worth a try...

MareMare...sandwich thins?....nah we have nothing like that, it has always struck me when I go into US or Australian supermarkets that there is usually a whole aisle devoted to diet foods, we have some but very little in comparison...and when you go to french or italian supermarkets, there are virtually none. There is a kind of sandwich loaf that has been on the market since the 70s, which is supposed to be a low calorie loaf, smaller slices and i have no idea what else that they put in or take out, but to be honest I prefer home-made brown soda bread, at least I know what goes into it!

Just so you know alwaysin, it took me around 3 months before I started to understand what was happening.  I had stopped eating grains because of my diabetes.  It seemed odd to me that the ADA was pushing what looked like a super high carb diet.  The more carbs the more insulin you have to take, and excess insulin causes all kinds of troubles in the body.  Then I read a book by a doc who is a diabetic, and he ate low carb.  I was completely grain free for 3 months then started to add things back in and that is when the mood stuff started to become clear.  I did figure out about the wheat sinus thing in about 2 weeks.  I have always had nose trouble, and I stopped hurting after just a week or so.

I bet you were so happy when you figured it out!

My almost 7 yo nephew ate more than me at lunch today. And the 4 yo probably did too. Then they came home and ate some more. I'm worried about my brother's grocery budget (the oldest brother wasn't even there, he can eat 4 waffles with peanut butter for breakfast and a yogurt).

Hey all! I started a bulk cooking thread if anyone would like to join in! Meal planning and cooking larger amounts at one time to stick in the freezer or just for the current week.
