    I love Indian food. I might make some tonight. Do you think tikka masala can be made with ahi tuna?

    I love Indian food, but it is one cuisine I can't seem to make well. I like my dhals and biruyanis, but my husband likes bastardized curry (basically curry powder and tomato paste style with potatoes), while I like the ones with a lot of different spices, and the coconut milk green versions. I adore cardamon, and he doesn't like it. I need to try butter chicken one day, it could be something we all can enjoy me thinks. A linkie?

The real stuff - not the faux chai they make at the coffee shops. I've had to get used to not eating rice, naan, and many other wonderful things but I don't miss them too much. Well, I miss the naan a LOT!
    Can you share some recipes and/or some favorite cookbooks? I love Indian but am at a loss on how to cook it

    I just have to share how great cold thermogenesis is for perimenopausal symptoms. I sleep through the night every time I ice myself.

    I second the fact it's a lot harder for women on PB to lose weight. I don't think Mark or any of the guys on the forum, who find this diet so effortless, give hormonal differences their due.

    I've been on here for about two years. On and off. I'm 24 (god, I feel old ;D). When I stumbled on MDA it was that holy grail moment. I bought the book after reading three posts, that same day. It all just clicked, and Mark's witty charm got the best of me.
    But he made it seem so easy and effortless and after about a year it got me a tad jaded.
    I did lose weight but very slowly. About 15lbs after 6 months.

    With a lot of tweaking and me eventually stumbling on Intermittent Fasting, I managed to speed up my weight loss and came close to my goal.
    Then due to my own stupidity, and some depression I gained a lot of it back.

    I don't think PB is the fast, effortless diet that women are looking for. BUT I do think it's the healthiest lifestyle.
    We all have messed up bodies after years of CW abuse, and it takes a long time to set things right again. Only then do our bodies begin to cooperate when it comes to weight loss.
    There comes a time when you become so fat and sick that you're suddenly willing to listen.

    Ah well, I was losing weight on my own, so I don't really care about that too much. Just want to have more energy.

    And yes, the boobs shrunk a bit with dieting, but they're still in decent shape. And I want them to stay that way!!! Hey, I never had the best of figures, but that was the one department I knew I had been genetically blessed. It would be a total downer to be getting both thicker in the waist (proportionately, of course, I'm sure it will get smaller as the pounds come off) and smaller on top. That they will get less firm is a given.

    Fiercehunter, cold thermogenesis? What is that? And are you seriously trying to tell us you're perimenopausal? I figured you were in your twenties from your picture.

    Was it Tomi who was saying she was inspired by the older lady in the bikini? I suspect my own mother is going to do that this summer. In her 70's. She figures she had to dress like a dowdy old lady all her life because of her weight, now that she's lost it she's going to have fun with her clothes. Mind you, she's had some plastic surgery to spruce things up a bit... (And no, it had nothing to do with PB.) I wouldn't put it past her to get a bikini.

    I am now trying to figure out if I am getting "warm" flashes, or whether I just feel warmer because my metabolism is shifting into fat-burning mode. I feel like a little space heater.

    Indian cooking is tricky. And curries vary depending on the country. Asian curries are the green versions. Indian curries are earthy tones. You MUST have the right spices or it just doesn't work. So find a good Indian grocery store and buy your spices there - or you can go online also. A truly good Indian curry spice will be about the color of red clay.

    Ahi in masala............. hum. I wouldn't. Ahi is best seared! I don't care for fish curries of any kind.

    we have a couple great Indian cookbooks - the one with the recipe for the butter chicken is called "The Complete Book of Indian Cooking" You can also go on youtube and watch a couple different shows............. Manjula's Kitchen a really good one for basic Indian cooking. Show me the Curry is a good one - and Vah Rey Vah is also very good. The last one is more advanced. He's a hoot to watch! He gets very passionate about his food!

    It might work. Emphasis on the "might". With chicken tikka masala, the chicken is marinated and cooked separate from the sauce. This might work with fish, if only because you'd be draping the sauce over the fish rather than simmering it in the masala.

    It's not what I would do with a masala sauce, but if you really, really like fish....

    I've been considering being a paleo-heretic and making a miso-marinated salmon filet this week. SHHH. DON'T TELL ANYONE.
