Carbs in cheese?
The food database will not sync if the numbers don't add up and some cheese packages say <1 or less than 1 carb, but the database won't allow that so it has to be rounded up to 1, since it is not honestly 0. You can create your own entry for the specific brand you eat in the database to make sure the numbers are correct.

Seeking OTC equivalent to Phendimetrazine / Phentermine
Well said JP! This is a community discussion site, anyone should have a voice in it, especially when their opinion or information is relevent to the topic.

PN, considering you chose a community forum instead of your personal journal, a forum which may be around for a long time and be read by other readers seeking the same information you desire, it is probably best that both sides of the story be out there. Anyone with experience with these drugs would be remiss in not stating so here, for full disclosure to others.

On the pro side such drugs have helpful but temporary effects, on the con side, the vast majority of people will gain all the weight back starting almost immediately once they discontinue the drugs since they didn't train themselves to change their diets, and the drugs have serious side effects.

I've tried many prescription and (legal) non-prescription appetite suppresants over the years--including amphetamines and their less effective cousins like Phentermine. Phentermine is only effective for about 3 months. After that they do make you crazy, causing serious psychological symptoms in some, including uncontrollable rage--I know this, it happened to me. Not to mention they cause high blood pressure, a rapid pulse, palpitations, tension and headaches. Many clinics require a one month gap after every 3 months in order to prevent some of the worst side effects.

Such drugs should never be taken without supervision--which is why you can't find a product OTC that really compares.

There is a name for the combining of OTC drugs that will produce a similar effect--it's called methamphetamine, and it's very illegal.

Yes, most "tomato sauce" is counted as vegetable because, added sugar or not, it is mostly tomatoes. Besides sugar it may also have added oil and protein depending on who made the sauce, but the concentration should be mostly tomatoes.

SHORT ON FAT....help please
Have you ever heard of Tibetan or Himalayan buttered tea? I haven't tried it yet, but being a big fan of hot tea I plan to now. I read some articles online and it really sounds interesting. That would be a way to have butter when you have nothing to spread it on, and you could do like Ingria does with her coffee but try coconut oil in tea instead of coffee, or even real butter in your coffee. I think I'm going to do some experimenting with drinking fats. If you think of it like you're "creamer" it doesn't sound so weird.
