    Potentially better than my town's drama of the past few years: middle school principle was found to be having an affair with the computer instructor. Both are married to other people. They used school email for correspondence.

    My supervisor is having an affair with a previous supervisor. She left that office and came over here. She says the reason is because she didn't like the atmosphere and constantly being a verbal punching bag for the General, but I hear rumors that people learned of their affair and made her move. Both are married to someone else as well. He's going thru a nasty divorce as a result, but she's not.

    OK, so I don't want to get too excited about yet another program tweak...but my body seems to be responding very well to the Schwarzbein Protocol.

    Honestly, the name is off putting, but the research is sound and it can be done primally. She is anti sugar, and anti processed but feels a small amount of whole grain is ok for some people (not me). I am following the insulin sensitive, exhausted adrenals plan from her latest book Schwarzbein Protocol II

    In short I am eating three meals and two snacks. Each meal is supposed to include protein, carb, veg and fat. For me, this represents an increase in carbs (100-125), veggies (working up to 5 cups) and snacks (3pm and 8pm). I'm working her step 1 which is nutrition.

    Yesterday:
    2 eggs, bacon, 1/2 cup peppers & mushrooms, cheese, coffee w/hwc

    Tuna, mayo, 1/2 sweet potato, 1/2 cup asparagus

    Walnuts and grapes

    GF chicken nuggets, 1 cup brussel sprouts, butter

    SF Jello mousse

    *Right now, I am just trying to eat enough. eventually I will drop some of the processed stuff above.

    It should not be too hard to swap processed foods for the real deal. Easy to make chicken nuggets, or shoot just have a nice piece of grilled chicken. Weaning yourself of sugar though is tough.. I am working on it as we speak as well. It will happen though I mean hey, if you can get up and perform infront of strangers.. you can do this!

    Her conjecture is that you need to start eating enough decent food first, then drop processed stuff, caffeine, sweeteners little by little. I bought some sugar free snacks last week to have when I wanted to binge. I'll use them up this week and then change my late snack to something better. The GF chicken nuggets will be gone today. My son did not like them. That will only leave the mayo, bacon, coffee & AS, so it shouldn't be too difficult.

    OK, the coffee will suck. Good thing to try for the summer.

    The hardest thing is the volume of food and the added carbs. My brain is alternately screaming, "Stop, you are going to get fat!" and "OOOH I feel...good!"

    I think your plan sounds very sensible and smart. I struggled for a while with eating enough and something you need to just EAT even if it's not the best option. Also with your hypoglycemic issues (I believe you had them? or maybe I'm projecting haha), snacking is not a bad call at all. I could probably benefit from that as well!

    Are your calories up, or does it just feel like a lot because you are eating more often?

    In the past week, I have noticed that while eating only when I am physically hungry I have had calories 5 to 6 times a day. First thing in the morning I do liquid stuff (coffee and green tea), the calories come from the HWC. Then mid morning, I have had nuts - either raw almonds or raw brazil along with my ACV/stevia/liter of water. Lunch has been later and has been a protein and veggies with tea and HWC. Mid afternoon, a protein smoothie I have been sharing with my daughter. Dinner a protein, salad and veggies. Then tea and HWC later.

    It has definitely worked to keep me from roaming in the pantry, and I notice that I am able to feel comfortable with smaller portions.

    p.s. I would have no problem with giving up bacon or mayo, but coffee could not happen. I just really like the taste in the morning, and at least so far, there isn't enough research to convince me it is worth being deprived of it. Of course I have said that about other things in the past that have ended up going by the way side.

    Paula...sounds like you are progressing well, even tho you are just starting. I too am doing well following the protocol. I understand the thought process that you are eating too much food! I felt the same way! But I think, back a few months ago I sabotaged myself by not eating enough...calories or carbs. Now that I've switched to this plan I'm losing again. Slowly...but I'm losing & that's what counts. I occasionally have mayo...& not giving up my bacon! Should be easy for those of us that gave up most processed foods already. I have enjoyed adding a fruit back in & of course only eat it with a protein! I found her meal plans & snack ideas very doable...at least for me...& easy to adapt. She says its not unusual for some to gain a little, at first...but I think that would apply to those that aren't already eating like most of us are.

    Good luck with the program!! I'll be following along!
    Goal: Don't worry be happy!

    nameless Yes, I am hypoglycemic.

    chris I think my cals are between 1800-2000. Recently, I have been eating 1400-1600.
    I'm not supposed to be tracking however, so I will have to drop that too. Coffee - I am switching to decaf first. She says you can have one regular cup/day after you heal your body.

    karin I imagine it will be torture to give up some of that stuff, but what if it is interfering with optimal health? I want to try it at least.

    PC Thanks for the support.
