Paula, you are handling this binge eating disorder like a champ! 23 days is amazing!!
Geo, congratulations are due for you breaking that weight barrier! You are a rockstar!
I really appreciate the responses ladies. I don't do dairy except HWC in my espresso in the morning. No sugar (very little fruit even) either. I get so paranoid when the weight starts going backwards. I do agree with each of you that it might be a little too soon to freak out. The protein/fat ratio is also something that could use some work. I'm on MFP under my same sign on as here if anyone feels like taking a look.
"Due to its ability to cross the blood brain barrier,L-glutamine is a wonderful way of providing glutamic acid to the brain. Many people think that, like other amino acids, this provides more neurotransmitters to the brain, but this is not the case. Actually, L-glutamine provides the glutamic acid that the brain uses as fuel (the only other substance the brain uses for fuel is glucose). Glutamine can block cravings for alcohol as well as sugar. This key benefit can be used in individuals as a diet aid. Taking one capsule or one quarter teaspoonful of L-glutamine at the onset of sugar or alcohol cravings has been shown to deter these feelings. This may not work in all individuals, but the non-toxic nature of this harmless food additive and the many other benefits that can be derived from this supplement make it worth trying."
Hey, adavison, I got your request. I looked on my phone after seeing your note and it wasn't there. Just logged into MFP on the computer and there you were!
