Does anyone eat collard greens, kale, turnips, etc with their meals?  I'm going to take your advice and stop with the sweet n low and splenda.  Will use honey or molasses or something else for sweetning.  Any other suggestions would be helpful.  How long did it take some of you to actually see some weight loss?  I'm still trying to hang in there and make some adjustments untile I can see some results.  I feel like eating way too much but some of your daily menus seems like more than I am doing.  Ya'll have helped me tremendously!
Thanks

taylo-collard greens, kale, turnips can be steamed or stir fried.  Put some olive oil, ghee, nutritional yeast, whatever.  I like to throw turnips, kholorabi, carrots etc. in a beef roast (not for A's) or chicken/turkey  while roasting or crock potting.  Yummalicious.

Today (Saturday) so far...

Breakfast comprised a homemade Muesli mix consisting of a mix of Oat, Rye & Rice flakes mixed with dried pineapple, pumkin and sunflower seeds. Soaked overnight in Pineapple juice. Served with warm soy milk, topped with stewed apple, natural yoghurt and lecithin.
Green tea.

Lunch today was a picnic comprising of a fresh toasted Rye bread sandwich containing EV Olive Oil, Miso, Tofu, Mignonette Lettuce, Zucchini slices, Lentil sprouts and Savoury yeast. Dried fruit including Apricots, Dates & Figs. Fresh Nectarine and green tea.

Currently snacking on cool water and deep fried Broad (Fava) Beans, a better snack than peanuts if you can get them.

Deb, I actually buy them from a local nut reseller near home. They only appeared just before Christmas  and they are absolutely terrific...in fact I might have to go and check the pantry to see if I have any left.

My problem seems to be breakfast!
I've stopped buying the crunchy type oat cereal (musesli but crunchy) because of it being a processed cereal. But I really miss my morning cereal and soya milk.
I cannot abide 'sloppy' cereals eg oatmeal, and hate the smell of heated milk even more.
So, I've been having perhaps an egg on toasted spelt bread or toast and honey or goats cheese and bread.
Any ideas???

Sassy - Hope you enjoy your meal tonight, this morning my husband asked me todays date, I said it was Valentines Day, he replied without even looking up 'Darling, you're my valentine every day'.  I had to smile!!

Janet, the oatmeal I use is mixed w/water(1/2 cup). I boil the water on the stove and then pour it over the oatmeal. I had a good cereal and now can't remember the name or seem to find it in the store anymore. If I come up with it I will let you know. I go thru spells with the cereal. I eat it for a while and then get tired of it and skip it for a week or two.

Janet - have you tried slow cook oatmeal?  Not sure what is available to you... We get an Irish imported oatmeal (McCann's).  It's not crunchy like your dry cereals, but the length of time you  cook it will determine how moist it is - just cook it longer for a drier cereal.  Slow cook oatmeal has tons more texture than the instant stuff.

Also, another idea... get the slow cook stuff, cook a batch of it up, let it cool to room temp.  Chop up some nuts, and mix the cooked oatmeal with the nuts, some seeds (pumpkin are great for this), raisins (or other chopped dried fruit), and some uncooked instant oatmeal.  Stir it all up, then spread out on a cookie sheet and bake for ~20 minutes or so in a 300 degree oven.  You'll have a home made crunchy cereal/granola!

This can also be done with cooked kasha (buckwheat groats) in place of the slow cook oatmeal.

Hey guys, I've been doing this about a month now and I still feel like I'm eating too much and not really seeing any weight loss.  Have any of you lost weight and how long did it take you to see any results.  I read on another thread that Dr. D said "A's" would either be quite slim or plump.  I'm afraid I am one of the plump one with a great desire to be a slim one for the latter part of my life since I have been struggling with the weight issue for the first part of my life.  Do any of you have any recommendations on sweetners for coffee and tea.  Is honey ok or is it too sweet?  I really enjoy seeing what everyone else is eating so I can compare.

Taylo - if you are trying to lose weight, you shouldn't be using any added sweeteners.

Honey and maple syrup may be a more natural type of sugar and thus 'healthier' to use. But as far as caloric and nutritional value they are little different from table sugar.

some people like to leave their oatmeal soaking in hot water during the night.......

next day, just mix in the dried fruit and nuts , add linseed or whatever and you have european

Thanks Sandra, I'm trying not to use any sweetners but sometimes I really need something for the green teas.  I havn't quite gotten used to it without anything in it yet.  
Lola, I will try to find the vegetable glycerine and try that.  I'm sure the WFS will have it.  
Have any of you tried Deflect to help you lose weight? and if you have did it work for you.  I'm thinking about trying it but I don't like taking pills for losing weight.   But I'm thinking that maybe I need that to get rid of the lectins that have been there for awhile.  I can't seem to job em lose with anything else.

deflect will help restore your gut from the past damage, yes, but it s not a weight loss pill.)

try ghee also for your gut flora, when using fat for cooking or other.

Hi Taylo,
I would say that if I felt I was eating too much and not losing any weight, the answer could be to just eat less???

Janet,
people have been giving you sloppy cereal ideas, but have you tried 'cooking' plain oats in a saucepan for 5 minutes or so, stirring all the time so that it doesn't burn, possibly with a tiny bit of oil, then letting it cool and adding your own choice of chopped dried fruits and nuts, nutritional yeast, kelp, calcium powder, whatever takes your fancy. Then serve it with stewed fruit of your choice, and moistened with soy milk, oat or rice milk, or yoghurt? You can set up the basic dry product in a quantity suitable to last you for a week or a fortnight. Sometimes when I get bored with that I just have an egg on toast, or fruit with yoghurt, or even some left over food from last night.

Oh Jenny, I'm   from ear to ear - you really heard what I was asking.
I'm certainly going to try doing that with the oats. Yes, I sometimes have an egg on toast/ cheese and beetroot is nice too.
So, again THANKYOU!!

Jenny,

Thank you for this recipe idea. I went looking for some crunchy oat cereal today and every single one at Trader Joe's had sugar as the second ingredient! What if I don't want sugar and also don't want wheat? I guess I'm out of luck with the store bought, unless someone else has any ideas?

I'm going to try your suggestion instead.

Hey, guys, went to the doctor for check up and had lost 3 1/2 lbs.  I was really thrilled but I still think I am eating too many calories.  I quit using sweet n low and splenda and not putting the honey in my tea.  I am drinking it with no sweetner since I tried to get some vegatable glycerin and was told it was used for cosmetics.  I didn't buy it woudl but have since learned it is also a sweetner.  Will be making a trip to WF soon and will get some then. Does anyone know is decaffienated green tea is still as beneficial as the kind with caffeine?  I'm still trying to make a few changes to my portions, hope my next visit will be better.

Unless you are really bothered by the caffeine I would recommend that you drink regular green tea.

I have read some reports, but don't know if they are valid, that decaffeinated tea is not as health promoting as regular green tea. I don't know if it is something that the decaffeination process adds or takes away from the tea that is the issue.

I'm glad to hear that you are off the artificial sweeteners.

I've also noticed somewhere in our books that regular coffee is better for As than decaf. Maybe something in the process of decaffeinating.
