    you and me both, Sabine. I'm terrible about getting back on track.

    I have been uber lazy and haven't made breakfast for the week (and now that there's only one day left of the week, not sure I will), so to get breakfast I have been going upstairs to the cafeteria. Today I got three boiled eggs and 3 slices of bacon. OMG the bacon SUCKS! I'm so used to my uncured bacon that this stuff is terrible! I'll eat it b/c I spent $1.83 on it, but it is NOT yummy.

    Ok, starting "for serious" today. Something odd happened on the 26th - all I wanted to eat was something that felt healthy and light after the previous day's excess. (I didn't overdo anything but the two rolls I ate, knowing I'd be miserable after.) So I took the lovely turkey bone broth, leftover turkey, some carrots, a can of five-bean mix, and some rice pasta and made soup. Such a waste of bone broth. Something in there made me feel even more wretched. Generally beans are my friend but no longer I guess. Perhaps it was because it wasn't beans cooked from natural state? Who knows. Or it could've been the rice pasta. I thought my only trouble was wheat, but it's looking more and more like barley and oats are troublesome, and maybe rice as well. Sigh. I think I'm heading for full-on celiac. Anyway...here I am. Just had eggs cooked in butter, and a latte made with cream.

    Try to keep in mind it isn't just "wheat" that is bad for our bodies - but ALL grains. Rice included. Beans are legumes - also bad for our bodies. No wheat, rice, oats, barley, beans, lentils, peas, corn .............. or anything that requires cooking before eating. Remember those little buggers called Lectins! They like to cause all kinds of inflamatory problems throughout the body - not just in the gut.

    Eat clean for a week and you'll see how great you will feel without those foods in your diet. Good luck!

    Hi jackie I'm single, so I cook and freeze everything. That way I have some variety in what I eat. When I cook, I portion my food out into 1-2 servings, then freeze it.

    You can make meatballs, and can even freeze in some marinara sauce with it. You can cook ground beef with spicy taco seasoning, sometimes I put this over lettuce dollop sour cream on top add in a tomato or avocado. It makes a good taco salad. You can cook and freeze salmon too. Sometimes I'll cook a ribeye steak, then cut it into thinish slices then freeze it. It makes a great topping for salads, throw in some boursin, blue, or gargonzola cheese and you have a gourmet salad. (The cheese and steak flavor everything so no need for dressings.)

    But my one of my favorites is bacon. I've actually gotten to where I kind of like frozen (cooked) bacon. Primarily I just don't like my house smelling like bacon all the time, but the side benefit is that when I have a hankering for a slice, then I can just grab one and nibble away.

    Good luck with the surgery!!

    Tomi, that's quite alright! I've been doing this half-assedly for a few months, and noticed after eating beans that the flatulence issue had gone..which was great since I do like beans. BUT after the other day I don't think I'll be eating beans any longer because the upset stomach and heartburn was far worse than some gassiness. And a spoon of peanut butter today was gagging. And I love corn, but lately it sounds nasty if I even contemplate eating it. These changes happen so fast.

    I attempted sugar free today... then my kids drove me absolutely batshit crazy and my husband and I were arguing via text about when to have DS's birthday party. I was angry, frustrated, overwhelmed, and the only thing I knew to make it all easier was to eat some sugar - so I ate my mom's homemade caramels - nearly 100% corn syrup. Try again tomorrow...

    I ate some of Winencandy's coconut oil-chocolate candies when I wanted to jump into snacking today. They satisfied, and kept me from going on to MORE and MORE. Plus, I got a nice chunk of fat with them.

    don't beat yourself up Jenn - we all have days like that. I have been having frozen berries lately when I feel the sugar urge. They take ages to thaw in your mouth, and taste really yummy....chin up !

    Here's a dumb question: the body-fat percentage measurement on my spiffy scale is nonsense, right? I shouldn't even give it a second thought - right? Because even though my measurements have been slowly moving downward and my weight has moved down, my BF% has been inching up. (Granted, I've also been a lump due to the zero exercise I've been getting due to bum knee pre-surgery, so maybe my BF **has** been going up.)
