  • Almost done reading Wheat Belly-dang! I'm on on informational overload right now, need some time to process it all. I am curious about the differences in primal eating vs the diet recommended in WB. Looks pretty similar, except WB advocates unlimited amounts of raw nuts, including cashews, boiled or dry roasted peanuts; seeds and cheese is also recommended, though other dairy is limited, including butter. There's a few other differences too, but overall their pretty similar. A really good book to read, if you haven't already Oh, he also advocates fasting, so bonus points there lol.

        I tried a lot of different things to quit. Water flavoring products (like Mio/Crystal Light- which also have a ton of chemicals in them too. Mio contains stuff in anti-freeze, so I stopped using these types of products), sparkling water and mineral water (which I just don't like the taste of) unsweetened flavored waters, teas, etc. Eventually I found fruit teas I like that don't need sweetened and I like to put lemon or mint (or both) in my water pitcher. There is also a brand of bottled flavored water without sweeteners (Metro Mint) that I liked while transitioning off of Diet Coke. I feel way less jittery just having coffee and tea.
        wow thats so great good for you!
        I don't drink diet soda...
        I mean I don't consider stevia in mineral water diet soda... or Zevia.

        I LOVE TEA.. great ideas

          Love that book.
          the only real difference I saw was he likes to use Raw nuts over cooked bc of the Omega 6/3 balance and nutrients.

          Also, I think just because he says to it's ok (which is also primal ok) doesn't mean to eat them ALL the time. ya know?

          everything in moderation. If I eat too many nuts I do not lose weight. I will maintain, but for weight loss.. no no for me.

            Ran to the store and they had raw almonds, so I picked up a pound-will limit it to one serving (1/4 cup) a day, beacuse their a bit pricy! And definitley not dd friendly

              Ha that's the same exact one I have, wish I would've seen the little one first, cheaper and less bulky. Though I do love to use it to make zucchini and cucumber noodles. I also make apple "fries" for my daughter the apples come out like matchstick size so it looks like fries.

                • today is my third down day. Yesterday i had a mid day, because i want to fast mon wed and fri, not sure then what to do with sunday? should i have 2 up days in the weekend?

                  I did start measuring portions, and weighing my food, and counting calories, although I don't like to do it. I am glad I did. what an eye opener!

                  I was eating like my grown sons, health food, yes, but copious amounts.

                  I also snuck on the scale although I dont want to weigh in more than once a week, just to see if i should give up and EAT SOMETHING, but, i was down a pound in just 4 days, so Im on track. Its not only about weight loss. i suffer with bowel disease, and have heard this is amazing for it.

                  My goal is get off the pharmaceuticals by the end of 2012.

                  Its 6 pm, and I have had 2 cups of broth and a protein shake today. Dinner will be liver and an egg. Tomorrow I can eat!

                  I think its important for me to be busy in the evening on down days at this point, so tonight i am upholstery cleaning my furniture!

                  This half fast might be good for a lot of things!

                    • Yeah, my down day turned into a medium day as well. My stomach continued to hurt all day and sometimes food helps...today was one of those days. I have to enter it all on MFP, but I think I'm not excessively high, it's just not a down day, lol. I'm undecided whether I just want to keep tomorrow as an up day or do my down day tomorrow...I guess it will depend on if my stomach hurts when I get wake up. So, I had a marathon Pride & Prejudice viewing...watched the entire BBC production with Colin Firth...six hours I think, lol. But my tummy does feel a bit better....still sore, but not nearly as bad as earlier.

                      • So today was my 3rd up day... I really wanted to get up to my goal of 2100 calories.. And I did it! But Oh my g! My stomach hurts SO badly. Maybe my food had flour in the sauce. Sometimes restaurants do that... (Which I'm intolerant)
                        Or 2100 calories just hurts! :P

                        • Had a solid dd yesterday and stayed on track, yay! This morning's weigh in was 128, which is right in the middle of my maintenance range. Really happy about that, after my indulgent weekend

                          • Back to 211.4 after my dd,I think instead of having an ud Saturday and a moderate day on Sunday I should have had two moderate days of 1300 cals each. Ill try that this weekend and report the results.

                            I'm pretty sure I didn't conceive this month so ill have at least another month of ADF and hope I can lose another 5-10 lbs. I can't say I enjoy ADF but I do enjoy the results, and most days it's easy. But when you have a rough dd it can seem daunting to continue.

                            Very much looking forward to my up day, chorizo and goat cheese omelet, bacon kimchi stir fry, pot roast and mashed butternut squash topped with bacon, and various snacks. Yippee!!!!

                            • I'm feeling mostly better today, but decided to make it an up day, though I think it will end up being mostly a moderate day. I was down in weight this morning...not quite down to my lowest on ADF, but almost. But judging by how many times I've visisted the ladies room today, I might also be down tomorrow, lol. I guess whatever it was that caused the pain is slowly moving out. (sorry for TMI, lol).

                              • My Fat-Fast Down Day yesterday went very well. I started off with a slice of liverwurst(60K) in the early afternoon when I first felt hungry. Cut it into 24 little pieces and ate it slowly over a period of ten minutes. Then in the evening I had 1T of mascarpone(60K) and another slice of liverwurst, about an hour apart. And that was it.

                                180 calories, which is my lowest 'eating' Down Day so far, and it was very easy. Minimal hunger, and I was not thinking about food all day, which I can find even more annoying than hunger sometimes. I don't want to be obsessive, you know?

                                Especially pleased because of my three Up Days in a row. It feels empowering to be able to swing right back into a Down Day without stress, or feeling deprived. My Honey and I are always talking about this way of eating, and we are both coming to feel that it is something we can live with over the long haul. Since we are both interested in the health and life-extension possibilities of the IF, we are hoping the long-term will be very long!

                                Today is my daughter's birthday, so we are planning a celebratory dinner out (sushi- which we all love). I'm going to have a pork chop, eggs, and greens for breakfast, with maybe some chicken and guacamole for lunch. I still have some of that pumpkin 'pie' to finish. One thing about ADF, the leftovers pile-up. Meats, I am learning to stick right into the freezer, but I don't think this 'pie' will freeze. Maybe I'll add a sliver to my breakfast.

                                Someone was asking for the recipe. Here it is. I got it from Bon Appetit's November 2012 edition.

                                Grandma's Pumpkin Pie (with primal alterations)

                                Combine
                                1 1/2C pumpkin puree
                                2 large eggs
                                1C cream (instead of whole milk)
                                1/2C pure maple syrup-grade B
                                1T tapioca flour (instead of wheat)
                                1t cinnamon
                                1/2t ground ginger
                                1/4t salt

                                Pour into a greased pie plate(instead of a baked crust).

                                Cook at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes until center is just set. let cool. Serve with whipped cream.
