It seems like it's much easier for me to stick to LC than it is for Mrs. FW. The weekend comes and the grocery store is a wonderland of carbs into which she glides wide-eyed. So maybe a few well-placed carbs during the week would mitigate the swings? Taters? Maybe even a little rice? Root veggies (turnips, beets, parsnips)?
[QUOTE=namelesswonder;1044435]"The Mood Cure" claims that amino acids and other supplements can cure addictions (they focus on pot & sugar, I think). So does "Depression-free: Naturally", which was originally a 7 steps to sobriety book.

Maybe I should look into this. I love my wine far too much.
It had a very vegetarian slant and propped up juicing- but it was slanted so it was positive about nutrients and basically didn't mention meat. But thanks for linking to me :)

I figured the idea of finding the origin for one's fat gains was a helpful reflection for some. And nutrients! Never forget those nutrients. I think they sometimes get lost in the wayside in the overarching primal/paleo community. I pay attention to them more than others because I'm still hoping one of them will fix what ails me.
Hey Paula! This is probably not important, but I was reading Dr. Attia's blog today and specifically searched for his bouillon use b/c I wanted to see how he justified the not-so-primal ingredients (he explained it quite well and eliminated my fears of consuming such products). Anyhow, I noticed he mentions he uses Knorr and not HerbOx. Not sure if that's important, but thought I would pass that along.
And I got the HerbOx as you recommended. It needs salt. lol
hang in there Paula. Its a new day. Plan plan plan and drink your broth :) Fat bomb bons might help :)
[B]James[/B], Sabine got it right. The HC is due to binging.
[B]Jenn[/B] I think the bouillon brands all have basically the same terrible ingredients, but I find them helpful. I'll have to cheeck his blog for the explanation.
Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I have been doing organization projects in my basement. Yesterday I made another $800 clothing donation to the Salvation army which should help with taxes. I also returned an ugly impractical sweater and was able to replace it with 2 simple solid color cardigans due to post xmas sales.
Today my artist son and I went through all of the art supplies and organized the new office/study/guest space.
Tomorrow I intend to go through clothes being kept for my youngest and the xmas decoration boxes. Will we actually throw anything out? IDK...lots of emotional attachment.
2 clean days, but the temptation to eat sugar is intense. COOOOKIES!!!
Toss out the cookays!!!!! I know easier said than done with the husband and kids around.
Two binge free days are a good start. Keep it going.
My husband took a BUNCH of homemade goodies that were given to us for Christmas..... and gave them to homeless people. :) Great solution. Nothing wasted.
Checking in. Hoping things are okay.
