    Hey, I loved your comment in the boob thread. How's P3 treating you?

    Hi Sarah,
    I have a strange question for you. I was reading your post in the 'ask questions here' thread about your dislike of artificial sweeteners. I was wondering if you like grapefruit?
    I ask this because there is a chemical, 6-n- propylthiouracil, that is found in grapefruit that only a small percentage of the population can taste. It makes it extremely bitter. I am one of those people. If I was the first person to eat a grapefruit I would have labeled it as poisonous .
    I also cannot stand artificial sweeteners, they taste bitter to me. I have started wondering if the same chemical is at work.
    I was just curious if this happens to you as well.

The end of HCG- a post HCG reflection.

by sbarsotti on June 6th, 2011 at 09:38 AM
The end of January I started HCG on a slight whim. I’d heard about it- and found it on eBay for a decent price. It wasn’t until my PayPal transaction was complete that I began my research- and by the time my glass vial of homeopathic drops arrived I was well prepared with a fridge of food and an arsenal of information printouts from the internet.

A short while into my weight loss journey I found HCGdietinfo.com. I could ask questions, find answers, and do basic research to my

B: Activia light vanilla and coffee with nonfat milk (a couple cups)
SN: Canned tuna with pepper
L: Taco meat 99% lean ground turkey, ½ lbs or so
SN: The other half of the taco meat
D: Salmon burgers (2)
SN: Sugar free jello and a diabetic friendly strawberry yogurt

I’ve been walking EVERY DAY since starting,

A slight Dukan mishap...

by sbarsotti on May 4th, 2011 at 09:09 AM
Dukan…. A hiccup!

Yesterday was not my best. In many ways- it was a great day. Here is my menu:

B: coffee with nonfat milk, activia light vanilla
SN: lunchmeat rolled with nonfat cream cheese (five, it’s small lunch meats)
L: 5 ounces London broil and a sugar free jello snack
SN: lunchmeat rolled with nonfat cream cheese (five… again…. I forgot to bring other snacks to work) and a cup of sugar free hot cocoa
D: 5 ounces London broil

Dukan Continues

by sbarsotti on May 3rd, 2011 at 08:45 AM
Another day of Dukan, down.

And I’m down another pound. I’m still not going to get excited and bounce around until I’m under 162.8 (my LIW) but thus far I’m down 6+ lbs since Friday. And eating things that should make me gain, according to HCG (artificial sugars, food starch in small quantities, oat bran).

Yesterday I did things a little different, though. I started out intending to do a shake day- where I consume two or three protein shakes and then eat a protein

Dukan, first weekend DONE!

by sbarsotti on May 2nd, 2011 at 08:32 AM
(In case you didn't notice, this is a personal comparison between Dukan and HCG. I'm not giving advice to change anything)

Dukan, first weekend down!

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are now under my Dukan belt. I’m still in the ATTACK! Phase, meaning I’ll only eat protein and fat free dairy until the end of this week.

I was nervous starting because I was afraid that the foods I’d be adding that are “Dukan friendly” aren’t exactly HCG friendly.
