How neat to have someone in the same place! It's good to hear that our doctors, etc. are saying the same things. It makes this feel a little less extreme. I know she'll give me my fruit and whole grains back eventually, but it's so weird today not having them. The one exception is Saturday morning, I get to have some oatmeal and half a banana (and egg!) before I put my five miles in for training. It's a good thing I love eggs already!
I have noticed as the day goes on that I am less interested in food. I'm only on half a dose a day right now, so I haven't had any nausea, but another friend said the same thing you did about that her first couple of days on it. I had the thought earlier today that it's probably a good thing that I don't live alone, because I think I would end up forgetting to eat for a day or two on this stuff! I've had a little heartburn, but I'm not sure if it's the Phentermine or if it was having salsa, canadian bacon and coffee (with eggs and spinach!) at 8am!
You're right; it will be neat to see how our experiences compare- and that we can do it!
Thanks! It seems that writing down my food really helped me spot this. I still track on here, especialy since I have so much already saved and it will do the math for me. In my paper journal I've been writing down each meal's calories, carbs, fat and protein. Breaking it up and writing it down like that reinforced the disparity more so than just plugging everything into a computer. Isn't it interesting what works and doesn't for all of us. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
Hey there Erin. Thanks for nice blog comment :-) I'm not too familiar with gluten but have you looked into used some rolled oats or gluten free bread crumbs for the meatloaf. The meatloaf I threw together was so easy and I think you could make it Gluten free with one change.
Hey Erin. I actually don't have have a slow cooker but you did give me an idea. I haven't got around to trying cauliflower crust pizza either for the same reason; just don't think it will taste right. Thanks for stopping by the blog and for the congrats :-D
Ok so here are some links for you. I hope you can find something useful here. I love making omelettes and I hope it something you can get comfortable with making. Happy hump day!
