Keep the liquids flowing through and in the water you are drinking for the day have a pinch (for every litre, shouldn't be able to taste it) of grey sea salt  in it.

do you have a particular grey sea salt you use? I see one online that looks very good. expensive tho. I thought the Himalayan was costly!!

Smart Balance.  It's trans fat free & gluten free


sounds like margarine to me, but I might be wrong....

Correct, Smart Balance is not butter. You can see the ingredients list by clicking on the nutritional facts link under each product description. All the products I checked had avoids in them.

italybound-the kind I use is the one on the site you posted.  Le Paludier-grey sea salt from Brittany 500 grams.  Ha...online it goes for $6.75 Cdn. and here in my Cdn. health food store I buy it for $4.50.    Go figure.

Debra

P.S.  And...I think butter (whether organic or not)  should only say cream and or salt in it.

I have seen Ghee in the ethnic section at some Dominion stores in Canada.  I've yet to try it and I've not made any ... maybe that will be on the list for this weekend.

PT - Thanks for the accronym ... it's going on the side of my monitor !!

l-tyrosine is for cravings ???  thank you for that tip ... I thought it was for stress and keep meaning to look it up.

What a helpful thread this one is today !!  {{{{Everyone}}}}

Colleen-Many years ago we had a Dominion Store here, but it closed down.  I don't even know where the closest one is from here.  I did find out about an international section at Basic Foods in Timmins.  Will look there to see if I find it.  But...there are Dolmas and grape leaves...yaaaahhhhoooo.

l-glutamine is supposed to be good for cravings also.  Just read that the other day.

Italybound/Debra,
FYI You can make dolmades without rice! (or with just a tiny amount of rice in addition to the ingredients below)

Ground beef/lamb, onions, garlic, parsley, mint, pinenuts(if you wish), salt and pepper, olive oil. Voila!

Italy,
...and they taste ravishing - absolutement - especially if you sautee everything in butter instead of oil! (Tip: Greeks cook with butter or  butter/oil mix often but tend to keep this little known yet crucial fact quiet ...beef dolmades are frequently cooked with butter instead of olive oil  ...I think because it adds depth, and moistens and extends the flavour of the beef...oh and you can add a pinch of cinnamon, too. It'll make your dinner guests more agreeable (according to the earlier generations of Greeks from Turkey)..

eh
sob..I can't have butter/beef but as an AB visualiser... what is the equivalent for 'taste' -  will 'tasteuliser' work here?

I second that!!!!!!!!  Need to make that trip to Timmins soon.   My mouth is watering and I am hungry.  Just did workout and need protein.   Have to get this lemon water down first.

Debra

P.S.  Just noticed your second post madgeh...you can have ghee and turkey.

Hey Jen...are you getting all of this?

Debra-ok I am officially overwhelmed!  I wish there was a class I could take.  I know that sounds silly, but I am better at learning things when I am hands on.  It's hard for me to grasp things just by reading it once or twice.  I totally appreciate everyone's help though!!!!  I obviously need to re-read everything & then again.  Ugh=I feel so darn lost.  Anyway, thanks again everyone for your help!

I second this also.  I have to read things over and over also.  Read instructions...bah...just show me how to do it.  Much better now though since on the diet.  Lecithin granules too, girl.  Just keep the books handy and keep on reading on this forum and asking questions.

Colleen, about the stress, a week ago I started to take L-tyrosine regularly and feel so much lighter since (also weigh a little bit less); I don't get hungry ('protein craving') as often as before, which means I am more relaxed and can cope with stress more easily.

Jen, make a point of having mostly beneficial proteins (& veggies) for breakfast, eat as much as you need (!), and stick to this practice. As Debra says, such meals will help you to keep the avoids away! and will also eliminate any and all cravings. The good results which will follow will give you new powers, inspiration and inner guidance on how to deal with the food issue in ways that didn't occur to you before, and help you to carry on. And so will us your friends in the community... Start with little steps and have faith.

is your DH willing to read the book or will it be a struggle to get him to do so? I want my DH to read it as well. yeah, right!!     but then again, maybe he will, he resisted eat for his BT for almost 2 years, but here he is. will see if he stops for that bacon and sausage today. He's almost completely given up beef, given a choice.
