Hey all! In my quest to find portable p3 acceptable snacks. (havent introduced nuts or cheese) I came across pumkin seeds. 15 grams of protien in a small bag of those suckers! They are salted, it says 20mg of sodium for the whole bag. This may be a dumb question but is that alot? Too much? If i eat them should i just drink more h20 to release the sodium? Any thoughts would be awesome!
Is it better to just keep taking the drops WHILE you are going off protocol for a couple of days and then just go back to protocol? What is wrong with taking the drops and going off? Is it more detrimental? If you are not going to be off protocol for more than three days should you keep taking the drops?
I've determined over the past four weeks that the best way to get through this diet is to look forward to things that you can do in the future. I'm actually REALLY looking forward to phase three since I have found so many phase 3 friendly recipes that will satisfy my cravings for sugary treats and carbs. Phase four should be a lot easier if I can slowly add different things back into my diet all six weeks of phase 3 + phase 4.
BUT - that being said, I love the two load days that you
I have recently read that there is no HCG in homeopathic HCG! I wasn't as concerned as I had lost 20 pounds in 23VCLDs but I started out with one and ran out and continued with a different one and saw that I was constantly stalling. And that my losses were much higher in the first two and a half weeks than they were in the following week and a half. I rationalized that that is how it works that you lose the most weight in the beginning and then taper off....but what if it is the potency of the
At this point I seem to be maintaining my new set point reasonably well .. though it took 2 steak days and a protein day to bring me back on course after I experimented with various approaches (more fat, more cals, less cals, etc). What I arrived at was: (1) eating less fat than I was, (2) less steak (too much meat!), (3) taking digestive enzymes & probiotics [still can't find a "meat version"], and (4) taking a "laxative tea" to stay regular, (5) stopping mayo altogether.
Exterminate what? I don't know. Self-doubt, probably. Unwanted pounds, definitely!
This has been a weird week. I am doing a lot of juggling, and of course, it is week 3, so my weight loss is slowing. Perhaps it's the height of irony, but when I am stricter about my meals and calories, I seem to lose less weight! The key for me seems to be grass-fed 85-15 ground beef. The two days I posted huge losses, I ate that for both my protein servings the day before. The two days I have stalled,
Couldn't believe it....I hit 121.5lb!! I am proud of my body and recognizing that my body IS efficient, and works well. Even though I indulged and set myself back, I was still able to get back to losing within 3 days and I am so thankful.
I'm doing an extended round until I hit 115lbs or reach the end of my drops potency. I think I have enough drops to make it to JUNE....but that would be close to 60 days!!! I'm actually feeling the groove, my body is lean, mean and likes the simplicity.
My celebration for hitting the 30 pound mark was short lived! lol! No cheat just my body being difficult. I actually worked in my daughter's yard yesterday afternoon and I am so sore today. I am holding fluid, so I went to the gym this morning for 30 minutes of cardio and I am drinking lots of water and tea. I am hoping tomorrow will be a good day.
On a positive note my capri pants are too big! Now that's a good feeling.
Make it a great day and I hope the scale
Just wondering...have any of you had a stall from NOT eating a 2nd fruit, and not eating the breadsticks/melba toast? I've cut out the evening serving of fruit, and have not been eating the grissini or melba for the past 3 days to see if it would increase my losses. I've not gained, but have stalled...and am having more water retention. TOM is coming to an end, I've had the same water intake...so I'm puzzled. I've not cheated once since starting this diet either, so I'm a tad bit frustrated.
Today is my second gorge day!
Yesterday, I didn't stuff my face like i thought i could.. and my weight loss was .4 today.
I don't think I will be able to today either. For some weird reason, I am just not hungry and I'm worried that this will effect my weight loss later on.
Unfortunately, I am not having a good start. I believe my debit card was stolen because this morning my account was zero and pay day isnt until friday. I was planning on going today to buy all my groceries
