Reactive Hypoglycemia?
[quote=notjune1]Beans are the BEST!!!!!!! They are good carbs, high in fiber and protein and keep my sugar rocking along normally.[/quote] Yes, oh yes! This is only my second time going mostly vegetarian and I really love it because of the foods I cook. I do like meat, and I'm not trying to save the planet so I will have it on the weekend. I have observed that different foods make you crave different things. Meat makes me crave soda, bread and pasta make me crave cookies and ice cream. Additionally, I was brought up to eat certain foods with certain things like spaghetti and garlic bread, pizza and soada, hot dogs and tater tots. My digestive system can't handle meat and simple carbs in the same meal like it can handle meat and veggies. I thought going vegetarian would be a death sentence because of my hypoglycemia, so I eased my way into it. It only took a week really and I don't think I even needed to ease at all.

Reactive Hypoglycemia?
I suffered from being hypoglycemic for four or so years. Just recently I tried vegetarianism for a month - fasting. I don't eat a lot of bread because beans and rice are a better carb option. Beans, mushrooms, nuts, cheese have good protein and fiber (excluding the dairy). I haven't felt this good in years. Have you tried this?

new to site
Oh yes, it is a great place for support. Also, it is a great place to find information like recipes, and read people's personal experiences on different diets. You might read someone's journal and think, "oh, so that's what I'm doing wrong" or even "been there, done that let me reply to them and tell them how to get through it". I love this community.

Cheat Days
When I was on Nutrisystem, I refused to call off-plan meals/days "cheating". Because Nutrisystem is a way of eating that was very successful for me. Right now I am on a diet, plain and simple, and I have a cheat meal either on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. My diet is low calorie, low fat, low carbs and I eat between 1200-1500 calories per day. As long as I do not eat fast foods, I find that I maintain weight pretty well. But I have a difficult time losing weight while eating certain foods. This diet eliminates a lot of those foods from my diet and leaves me with plenty of fat burning nutrition. It sounds awesome, but it is a very strict diet with little variety. I know if I do not give myself some leeway one meal a week, then I could not maintain the discipline for any length of time. Also, instead of splurging after hitting my goal, I can just transition easily into maintenance mode and it will be no big deal.

Really discouraged :(
I realized that group eating proves to be a challenge for me. Subconciously I don't want to get left out on something delicious. You know how you get a little bit to start, find out its good, then go back for a bigger serving and the dish is gone? I can't stand it. Even yesterday after eating enough and identifying I was full, the post-funeral dinner made me want to compete for more food. I distracted this primal urge by serving everyone else what they wanted until the food was gone, and surprisingly so was the urge. Is this what makes you binge too?

help please
[quote=jo60]whole flaxseeds are more or less useless..they really need to be ground or milled for any real benefit.[/quote] I have to disagree with that statement too. The seed is a fiber, however the other nutrients are inside. By grinding them before consumption you get the rest of the benefits. So eating them whole is not "useless", and a good chewing will release these benes as well.

help please
I have to disagree. The unmilled flax seeds won't give you the benefits of the flaxseed oil because the outer shell cannot be digested, but it will give you the same "fiber punch" as you call it. I also like to buy them whole because of the longer shelf life and grind them with my coffee grinder. They are wonderful.

Sensa
As someone who has used Sensa, I can say it does work. But let me tell you, it is NOT an appetite suppressant. That is the first mistake of many people who rush in to buy it and claim it doesn't work right. The smell triggers the part of your brain that tells you that you are satisfied. For me, the feeling of satisfaction with food was new. Its more of a "okay I'm bored with this, lets do something else" feeling. You can choose to ignore it if you want to and continue to overeat because its not an appetite suppressant. If you want to try it, try it. It may help you learn when to stop. I only used the first month and I am glad to know the feeling of satisfaction.

Hey Atkins people - why lie?
So I am assuming that your title was confrontational against the Atkins product and not those using it. I'm not on Atkins but I did choose to take offense to the tone of the title, but I see where you're coming from. That Atkins product is highly deceptive. So what you're saying is not that the users of Atkins are lying but the company itself is lying to promote its products. I do think Atkins needs to pull those products if they cause adverse effects to such a significant amount of people.

Kind of an embarrassing topic but...
I had this problem before dieting, but flax seed has been magical. I make muffins out of it, I add it to savory meals, soups, and peanut butter or almond butter. I have never been so regular!

I was stuck and then this?
@Trudycleal - sooki is right about the stall, but I would recommend you bring it down to 1200-1400 on days you are not exercising and up to 1700 on days that you are.

Get cranked!
Summer is coming! Summer is coming. I'm so happy to be off my plateau and I'm so happy for your smiling 174 lb reflection. That is my first goal weight. It was originally for my April 1 birthday, but because I have been plateaud for a month I think I might not make that one unless God wills it. But I can tell you that I look a lot better at 186.2 going down then I looked at 180 and going up.

Fatorexia: I'm not that fat...
Let me also raise my hand to checking out and judging other women. And if they were with someone, I'd wonder how they got so lucky and what does that person see in them. Now I look for someone with my body type who is smaller, so I can get an idea of what I will look like then. I also have a curve in the base of my spine which is why I have always bought tight clothes. Loose clothes don't show people the area between what they think is my back and where my back actually is.

Fatorexia: I'm not that fat...
I still find myself thinking that I am skinnier and prettier than I actually am. The other day I went to check out an iPad 2. When I checked out the front facing camera I got a huge shock at my makeupless, eyebrows-need-a-wax-bad face. On top of that, every time I go to the gym I get unpleasantly surprised in the floor to ceiling mirror. Despite all the muscle I've put on, I still have all of this stomach. No one else in my Zumba class looks like me and I get embarrassed about it.

gkcfm95 thanks for reminding me to try it with cream cheese. I was wondering how to do my MIM tonight. I like to cut stuff up to make different MIMs. A half teaspoon of ground coffee and sugar-free chocolate chips made in the MIM is delicous. If you do this, don't put cinnimon or splenda in it.

What plays the villain?
Ice cream is my villain, and I've only had one regular Good Humor ice cream sandwich since 1/11. Let me tell you, just that one was not at all satifying. It made me want at least three more because the taste was incredible. When I hit my goal, I'm going to have to save ice cream for special occassions only because I don't believe I can eat a serving size. I think I'll still eat a pint. I have started eating sugar-free candy. They stave off the feeling of deprivation because I'm not a candy eater so I can control myself, and they're sugar-free so i don't feel guilty.

The Protein Myth
I'm not even going to read the article because I know what works for me now and what doesn't. I know that my blood glucose issues have decreased since I switched to a low carb/high protein way of eating. I also know that I don't have to get my protein from meat, and vegetables are a great addition and alternative. There are health benefits to everything that is naturally edible and that is why God put them on the planet for us to consume. But we have to learn the balance that best benefits our body. I know that carbs give me quick-release energy, protein gives me slow-release energy, and healthy fats keep everything functioning. NOS, Gas, and 10W-30. I like to keep a variety of options available. In sense, I let my body tell me what it wants: veggies, nuts and legumes, eggs, protein shake, chicken, turkey, steak?
