A sparkfriend suggested that I try a different form of discipline to help me overcome my sugar high and get back on the wagon of weight-loss. She warned me to do it for only 3-4 days. It is a very simple plan, and simple is what I needed (beca... Read more

Trying to overcome White Death

Thursday, July 29, 2010      2 comments

My birthday and DH's birthday are one day apart. This year has been unpleasant and very stressful; I was dreading "celebrating" my birthday. Friends stepped in and made it nice for me; and not-so-DH wasn't mean either. I got through it; but I... Read more

Today is my birthday -- and I'm sad.

Monday, July 26, 2010      7 comments

What a waste of skin I seem to be. A third day of wallowing in self-pity and anger at myself and the world and mostly my husband. I suppose I am getting very close to the point of deciding that it really is better to be alone and lonely rather... Read more

not doing well..

Saturday, July 24, 2010      2 comments

I actually ate again at that Indian restaurant. Why? I'm angry. It is emotional eating. I'm sad. I'm in pain. I turn to food. It's emotional. I need to get away from here.... Read more

Please help--a simple thing

Please let me know you are checking on me. Let me know somebody cares, just for a little while. This has been a tough season emotionally for me. Consequently, I seem to keep screwing up in small ways, just enough to keep me stalled for month... Read more

some days I blow it....

Monday, July 19, 2010      3 comments I blew it today. I was going to be alone all day. Had to entertain myself. Usually, I can do that without food. But there was this new Indian restaurant with a fabulous menu... and I've been feeling down and depressed about my marri... Read more

First off, I ALWAYS try to mix my sweeteners: aspartame, acesulfame-K, saccharine, and stevia, for the best taste. Frequently, mixing can give you a synergistic effect, making things taste even sweeter than you might expect. Second, artif... Read more

Uses and drawbacks of polyols

Wednesday, July 14, 2010      1 comments

All polyols are not created equal. Some are sweeter than others. They have different carb values. They function differently. And some are more available than others. And of course, their costs vary. All the calories in polyols are CARBs. I got ... Read more

Sugar Equivalents

Tuesday, July 13, 2010      1 comments

For now, I am going to exclude polyol information. The chart below tells you how much sweetener to use to equal 1 Tablespoon sweetness of sugar, and how many carbs it has: ALL MEASURES EQUIVALENT TO 1 T SUGAR IN SWEETNESS: SUGAR: 1 T = 12 g ... Read more

Most artificial sweeteners have carbs. How many?

Monday, July 12, 2010      1 comments

So you want something sweet. And you are low-carbing. And to your chagrin, you've learned that the carbs in artificial sweeteners ADD UP! How do you choose what to use? There is taste, of course (does it taste close enough to sugar for you?)... Read more

Fat Fast Stage 3

Sunday, July 11, 2010      0 comments

Huh? IS there a stage 3? Well, If the fat fast has worked for you, and stage 2 has worked for you, and you still have the discipline, you still need to ease back into regular low-carbing. The next step is to return to Induction for a few day... Read more

Some Fat-Fast Stage 2 Mini-Meals

Wednesday, July 07, 2010      0 comments

If the high fat/carb ratio and cutting calories work, any dietary change in that direction should work. As you leave Stage 1 of the Fat-Fast, you can try adding more calories (6 mini-meals of 200 calories), OR 4 smaller meals of about 300 calor... Read more

So what IS Stage 2 of the Fat Fast?

Sunday, July 04, 2010      1 comments

Hopefully, by now you know what the Fat Fast is (90% fat calories, 1000 calories total, for the purpose of getting into ketosis fast). You know that most of you will lose a pound a day. You also know that that loss is the most ephemeral thing ... Read more
