    Fast Metabolism Diet - FMD for P4 log - quest: stability

    I thought I'd keep a log as I start FMD in P4 tomorrow. If you are interested in FMD, I welcome any kind of discussion related to this quest for stability and desensitizing myself to grains and other starches.

    Here's an overview of FMD: http://www.chewfo.com/diets/the-fast...oid-food-list/ But if you decide to do it, get the iPhone app...it makes it so much simpler.

    My story is in my signature. I've been stable after my last short round, but with increasing difficulty. Although its been about 10 weeks since I ended round 6, I'm still eating basically P3 with the addition of bananas, sprouted grain, and occasionally beans. I've added no other starches, sugars or even sweet fruits. I tried a bit of sweet potato this week and had to immediately do a correction day. Although my corrections have worked, they recently aren't quite getting me back to LIW, and in fact, I've been inching up a bit each time. In the last week, I've done 2 corrections and am doing one last one today before starting FMD tomorrow, so I don't start out having to lose more than 3 pounds over LIW to begin with.

    My hope is that FMD will get me off the sensitivity roller-coaster that seems to have gotten worse with each round of HCG, to the point now where I'm questioning things like annatto coloring and common vegetables, because I can't seem to pin-point the problems. Hence, its week 10 or 11 and I'm still testing things!

    My plan is to do the FMD meals but avoid the things I either know or suspect to have issues with or haven't tested yet. For the grains, I'll probably stick to sprouted grain and rice the first week. If I do ok, maybe try oats and quinoa the next.

    I'm going out to shop later today to get some things that I think will be helpful, although I probably have enough appropriate stuff to get started. It will be a kick-off shopping trip to get my mind in the game more than anything else. I might pick up one of the coffee substitutes to try.

    The biggest challenge for me will be the no-coffee rule. I still haven't decided if I'm going to observe that part or not. The rest will be easy, I think. Everyone talks about how the P2 (protein/veggies only) days are the hardest because there is no fruit. I have a strategy for that. I plan to cook up a big batch of rhubarb and sweeten it with xylitol. That should take care of the fruit deprivation aspect of those 2 days.

    The only threads I was aware of are question/answer threads. Can you point me to the topic you are talking about?

    Leez, good luck with this. I am reading the book because I have a friend that is being successful with it. I hope this helps you get stable. I'm only on P3D9 but I'll be following along to see how you do.

    Thanks Last10. I'm excited to get started. I went shopping today and bought all kinds of interesting things like Coconut aminos, black rice and quinoa milk. I also got a coffee substitute grain based beverage called Roma.

    I've been practicing using the iPhone app. It is going to be really helpful in keeping all the rules of what to eat when straight. I like how you put in your waking time each day and then it figures out your meal and snack times from that. And the choices offered are only the list for that phase of each thing...so you can't make a mistake.

    One of the criticisms of FMD I read was that on some of the days, the calories were too low. But in studying up on things, I think that criticism was made out of ignorance. Apparently, your veggies list is unlimited in all phases and you can even eat them in between meals and snacks if you want to. There's no reason anyone would not be eating enough calories unless they didn't avail themselves of the unlimited veggie options. For instance....breakfast on day 1 requires a grain and a fruit. I'm going to have a slice of sprouted grain bread and a peach. But you can add as many veggies to that as you want. I plan to have a big bowl of sweetened butternut squash with cinnamon with my required items tomorrow morning, and maybe some orange-glazed beets the next morning.

    I'm nervous about using a coffee substitute. I am such a coffee junkie! I am sucking down as much real stuff with heavy cream as I can tonight in a last hurrah. I'll give it a try, but if I can't stand it, I will be brewing up some of my favorite decaf post-haste.

    Good luck! I love coconut aminos. I use them when I cook things like pork chops. I stopped using soy sauce several years ago and use the aminos in place of that.

    You sound well prepared. I've heard the iPhone app is good.

    I hear you about the decaf, I Love my morning Peet's decaf. I think I'm going off coffee on vacation for three weeks. We'll see. I only do decaf.

    Starting today. I found that the coffee substitute was surprisingly OK, and better than tea. Especially if you use 3 times the recommended amount. I added a splash of rice milk, but it didn't really make it any better or even whiten it. But it was hot and dark and had some body to it. Maybe thats all I need. I guess we'll see. We have a local roasterie here that makes the best decaf I've ever had. I may not be able to give that up.

    I used the coconut aminos to marinate top round to make beef jerky for the Phase2 snacks. I'll bake those today. I tasted the aminos before adding... another pleasant surprise--it tastes better than tamari. A little milder with a bit of sweetness.

    That's a great first report! Yes Coconut Aminos taste great!

    Is the coffee sub instant?

    Yes, its like the old freeze dried folger's crystals...you just mix it in hot water. The brand I got (Roma) I found is not certified GMO free, but I see that Cafix and Pero both are and are FMD approved brands and are GMO-free, so I'll get one of those next time I'm out.

    Thanks for the link, Grammy. I'll post something up there. It doesn't look like that thread is very active though. Although I see I made some posts on page 54 about my upcoming labs. Which I have had done and have results for now. My doctor says everything is great and didn't change my Armour dose. I'll try to make a post about that in your forum once I can gather them up with the old ones to compare. I'd like to get your view on them.

    ok, I guess I'll just keep posting here and keep an eye on the other thread too.

    Just finished my first day of FMD eating. I actually enjoyed it, despite the lack of real coffee and putting butter on my veggies. But what was really nice was the variety of the fruits and veggies on the list. I had been limiting variety as I tried to work through my P3 testing, as I always have difficulty pinpointing my problems. So branching out was fun. I had fresh pineapple today, butternut squash with breakfast, jicama slices with a snack and beets and pumkin with dinner.

    I'm just doing sprouted bread and brown rice for my grains on week one. I know I'm ok with Ezekiel bread and I think rice will be safe. I'll branch out more later once I see how this first week goes.
