I've never really had a problem with yogurt unless it was 'sugar free' (due to the fake sugars which are a common trigger for FODMAPers) and I seem to tolerate greek yogurt extremely well. I live in Canada and the brand Presidents Choice greek yogurts are all great except for the honey flavoured which I don't touch. As long as there is no inulin in the ingredients or sweetened with fake sugars, I'm good.
To succeed in your goals is to go outside your comfort zone, push yourself constantly and realize that you only get back what you put in, so give it 110% all the time, everytime!
We had an early dinner, so I just had some yogurt with walnuts to hold me over.
I've been making the 24 hour fermented yogurt that is part of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and I'm amazed that I can easily tolerate it. Apparently, the 24 hour fermentation process increases the good bacteria & kills off all the lactose...I'm really enjoying yogurt again.
I made a pot of chicken soup last night...well, really just chicken & broth. I throw some celery & a clove of garlic in while cooking but strain them out. My guts have been "icky" lately, so I'm scaling back to boiled eggs and chicken soup & cooked carrots to try to get everything settled down.
I probably shouldn't have had the coffee this morning (with half & half), but I did. :(
I'm trying to find a way to cut back my calories without going hungry. I have such a big appetite, I don't know how anyone can be expected to survive on 1200 calories! I've been coming in around 1600-1700 calories for the day, and that's just not resulting in weight loss. It's almost 8pm and I'm at 1372 calories for the day...maybe I should just go to bed so I won't snack. :)
I'm still trying to get used to not cooking with onions & garlic. I can tolerate a little garlic powder in my foods.
I made soup with just 3 frozen chicken breasts cut up, 2 cups of diced celery with tops, 1 cup chopped baby carrots, and a 32 oz box of organic chicken broth. Added in salt, pepper & oregano and let it simmer for about an hour.
