The many diamond/superfood teacher cheeses eliminated my sugar cravings. I find I do better with cheese than yogurt. Let me know what works for you! I don't eat more than the suggested serving/frequency though. I do eat several smaller portions so I can have cheese more often.
Olerica, it does sounds like you are getting enough food in a day and a good variety too. I don't know what the daily grain allowance is for Teacher's (on that note, I don't know what it is for Explorer's either ), but I usually try to include two different kinds of grains per day (rice, spelt, quinoa, millet, etc.). I don't pay much attention to the recommended portions but I do make sure that I include a good variety of each food group every day. Other things I'm doing are following the rules of food combining... (http://www.internethealthlibrary.com/DietandLifestyle/food-combining-detailed-chart-b.htm) and also, something that I think is important ... since starting the BTD in November I've increased my usage of supplements. So whatever superfoods I am not able to eat as whole foods in any given day I will take them in supplement form on that day. I am finding that most all of these foods are available as supplements, even some of the more obscure ones. Maybe the use of supplements this way affects hunger, I don't know. I am also eating as close to 100% organic as possible.
I have not had a chance to see your replies until now. My goal is to get to 220 lbs by Dec '08, or at the latest Jun '09. Its amazing that I can now eat a can of chicken and rice soup and feel full until the next meal. There are still the old bad habits of quantity and quality to over come, but now my body is actively pushing me fight these habits.
Organic apple juice tastes fantastic; it has quickly become an addiction for me. I am wearing an old pair of pants that have been too tight for almost a year, and with my buckle at the tightest hole I can slip my arm through the loose belt.
At night, I cannot shed enough heat and it is difficult to get to sleep since my body seems to be vibrating. During the day I get blinding headaches that last for a few hours with nausia. My light sensitivity has become worse. I know that this sounds like a complaint, but I feel so good despite these detox symptoms.
My Mom has been 100% compliant for a week and can drink her apple juice while others have coffee and chocolate cake (her faves) without any cravings. I always suspected that she had the same three recessives as me. Is anything known about GentoType inheritance?

Many people call us "crazy", but the truth is that we have more than average sanity...
The crazy people are the ones who think a pill will fix you, who don't have the "stomach" (heheheh) to make real changes in their lives. "If you want to change your life, you have to change the way you live."
