Well I need to come clean... a month and a week into the GTD... staying wonderfully and happily 99% compliant, I got a horrid sinus head cold.

I made it through without taking anything bad (except the first day) it was so bad, I took Ibuprofen.

Ok so a few days goes by and things are improving and then my husbands birthday appears.  I'm still not well, feeling weak, depressed since I hadn't gotten to exercise much, etc., etc.  I had taken a sauna the night before to try and move this thing along and feeling a little stronger on his birthday, like a compulsive, driven 'shoot first, answer questions later,'Hunter, I got on my Elliptical for 45 minutes.  

Needless to say, I drained whatever strength I had been gaining.  By the time evening came and he begged for a pizza and chocolate cake from his favorite (never eat there any more), pizza joint, I caved; swearing I WOULD NOT TOUCH THE POISEN, but since it was his birthday, it was his choice.

Well I don't think I need to expound on what happened.  I got SICK SICK SICK AND IT took me 3 DAYS to recover to a point where I could be around any junk food and not reach for it.  My brain chemistry got totally whacked out and all my old cravings and mental fears from eating sugar came bounding out of the closet where they had been neatly tucked away under control of the GTD's brain chemistry balancing foods.

Today is the first day that I feel normal again.  

Yesterday in a poetry writing class I had to sit in front of a bowl of almond chocolate covered hershey kisses for 2-1/2 hours without reaching for them; because I knew ONE BITE, will be the beginning of a horrid binge that steals my life away for days on end.  I didn't do it and I subsequently have written to the teacher of the class and ask her to remove those from the table.  She agreed very kindly.  (she must know!!! )  ha...  

So the moral of this story for others out there... is DON'T TAKE ONE BITE OF YOUR MOST INTENSE non-compliant POISENS - especially if you have delt with addiction tendencies with wheat and sugar, etc., etc.  I mean you can do what you want of course, but being clean and compliant and then falling off the ladder is more intense than if you just ate junk continually. Once your system is clean, in my experience, it reacts very intensely to bad foods.

So there... I have it off my heart.  I'm so glad to be posting this and get back in the fray of this supporting board.

Today I made a wonderful stirfry of Rhutabagas, onions, garlic, broccli and applegate sausage all cooked in olive oil and ghee.

Then I made a batch of sardine patties and a pot full of sweet potato/butternut squash soup and also a batch of Katy's Walnutty Fudge.  And I've got a Steak (NY mind you!) thawing for later.  

Now why with all that wonderful healthy food would one cave into the dark hole of junky poisen foods again?  I can't really answer that except based on my story above, it is when I push myself to far physically and become imbalanced.  

Thank you all so much for being here.

Onward....

funkymuse, you know you are never alone if you waiver. There is always someone there w/ you.    
You are so right.......once you have some junk, it seems something kicks in and says 'it's okay, just this once' (ya know, after that last just once) and then again and again and again until you are 'sitting in front of the almond chocolate covered hershey kisses ..without reaching for them because you  know ONE BITE, will be the beginning of a horrid binge that steals your life away for days on end.'        It truly is so that once being clean, the junk kicks your patooty!! And sometimes in a big way!
I'm gonna hop on some of that good food wagon w/ you. It's not been so good around here either.  
I'm going to post this separately about some really GOOD applesauce I found at Walmart of all places!!

I noticed you hadn't been around as of late and was wondering about you.  Thought perhaps you were on a glorious vacation!  Sorry to hear you were sick.

Gosh, I know what you mean by reaching for just one yummy thing to pop into the mouth and wanting more, more..........!

Aw sweetie. Here's a big *hug* for you. Please don't beat yourself up over this.

JMO--I think what happened was that you were already stressed out and physically weak; maybe you needed a higher level of l-tyrosine to help you heal. Or it could be that your body craved starch to help you feel calmer for some reason, or to get you to sleep and rest (carbohydrates often act as a sedative of sorts). It might have been another physical reason, or all of the above, combined with a normal human compulsion to eat the things that taste so good and are so, so bad!

If you're not already taking it, you might try Rhodiola if you're having a lot of trouble with cravings. Craving wheat is a big indicator to me that I'm stressed out and need to take it easy, rest and relax. I take two caps of Rhodiola every morning and it's a huge help in damping down the urge to eat wheat and starches or sugars. I might be a Gatherer but I'm still an O secretor and have a lot of problems with wheat/starch cravings.

I KNOW what you mean about the Hershey's kisses. People bring that sort of thing into my workplace all the time and it takes a lot of self-control to keep my hands out of the candy bowl. I brought a big container of homemade trail mix to work to counter these temptations and it's really helped--I can have a treat that won't make me sick, so I don't feel deprived. (When it comes to treats I'm still three years old!)

Good for you for getting this off your chest with us, and for getting up, dusting yourself off, and continuing down the good red road of health. You're doing a great job!

Btw, please share your recipe for sardine patties? I love sardines and now that they're a superfood for me, I'm on the lookout for new ways to have them

Oh me, Funky, you did suffer for your sins if anyone ever did! You poor thing! The world just fell in on you - it was enough to make anyone sink!!   Sounds as if you're beginning to step pretty high, though, so maybe those old cravings will soon bite the dust never to rise again!!!!! We're pulling for you!

I wish someone could teach me the secret of liking sardines - not that I can eat them now but someday I might like them for a change as they are black dot. Right now I absolutely cannot stand the sight or taste of them. Someone said it might be because some time ago I tried to eat some packed in water instead of oil. Most awful something I think I ever put in my mouth. I wouldn't even give them to the dog! Seems like I used to like them when I was a child, but I guess maybe those WERE packed in oil.

Oh, another thing, I buy my applesauce by the 50 ounce jug at Walmart! It isn't quite as good as homemade but it is better than most - with NO sugar. Walmart's own brand.    There is no telling how many gallons of this stuff I've eaten during the last few years. Tell me your new-found brand, Italy, and I'll try it!

Oh, funkymuse, I've been bad, too, which is why I have not been posting much lately either. I started GTDing, felt good and lost a couple pounds the first week, and being a dope, decided to reward myself with chocolate. Which turned into a few weeks of shameful cheating, and gaining weight. And depression, with all its mental & emotional baggage. I'm reluctantly making a tentative connection between mental problems and sugars consumption. Now I'm craving caffeine.
I feel your pain, funkymuse, and am glad to hear you're doing better. It's inspiring me and giving me hope. I have to say Dr. D's diets feel more "forgiving," if that's the right word, than any other. I'd vowed never to diet again during the mid-1980's after reading a book titled Diets Don't Work, trying the concept of eat what you want and your weight will come into line, and it worked. For me.
I took on Dr. D's "O" diet for health reasons, and it worked like magic, improving a lifetime of miseries. It never felt like I wanted to quit forever if I'd been 'bad.' To sum up, I'm looking forward to being good again and reaping the rewards. Besides, I have to find out whether the O-Nonnie or the Gatherer diet is better for me.
Again, thanks for the encouragement via your posting of this thread.

I like them in oil a lot more than water, particularly in olive oil, tho it's more expensive. I love them, tho I would not bring them to the office because of their stinkiness to others.
So try them packed in olive oil and salt next time you feel brave. And have somebody around you can give them to if you don't like them. Luck!!

Definitely I think I was craving the carbs and I slept like a baby... but still this was not a good way to go about it!!! sigh.  Live and learn?    Rhodiola makes my brain feel weird... possibly I need to start out on a lower dose?

And the Sardine patty recipe is as follows:

2 cans of sardines in olive oil
2 eggs
2 tbl compliant flour

mix all together and fry in ghee or olive oil until browned and crispy.  add lemon juice or compliant mayo or... as a topping.

So still hanging in there.  Had some GREAT compliant meals yesterday with lots of meat and vegies.

Also started back on my Progestern creme as I think high estrogen was also contributing to the cravings and odd sleeping patterns and sore breasts... (i'm in peri menaopause).

I loved sardines as a child. My mother used to mash them with lemon juice and fill good sandwiches with them.
More recently on the BTD I have been making sardine patties, which are mashed sardines mixed with beaten egg and some compliant flour plus chopped green vegs. such as parsely or spinach, then fried like burgers. Very nice on a bed of lettuce.




Eating half and exercising double.

Thanks for the recipe funkymuse! It's on the menu for breakfast tomorrow. I'm glad to hear you're doing a little better.

If Rhodiola makes you feel strange, then maybe some l-tyrosine would be a better choice. I can't take it because it makes my blood pressure go up, but if you don't have that problem it might work well for you. Deflect is a good choice too.

I'm just coming out of perimenopause into full blown menopause, so I know exactly what you're talking about. I have trouble sleeping through the night, so I take melatonin and valerian about an hour before going to bed, along with a small starchy snack (used to be a banana, now it's usually half an oat flour muffin or a few dried apricots). This helps me to fall back to sleep more quickly if I do wake up, and also to get better restorative 'deep' sleep. I started remembering my dreams when I began to take melatonin--always a good sign for me!

Meletonin gives me headaches so I take Muscl-ease which has valerin in it...

But I have to take it at around midnight.  I can go to sleep alright, it's waking up later in the night that is my trouble!

Thanks for all the tips!  Much much appreciated.

Funkymuse, can you take camomile? I use it in capsules at night. I have been using it for years, and it really helps me.

I appreciate others "coming clean" because I was just a baaaahd G2 last night.  Since you guys have fessed up, I feel I can, too.  Bottom line:  I ate pizza.  And not even a pizza made with high-quality ingredients.  No this thing was from a chain called "Pizza Hut".  I've never partaken of their fare before.  Weird.  Wild.  Wacky.  First off, WHY do they send breadsticks along with a pizza?  Like we need MORE wheat?  Well, I tried ONE bite of one breadstick, and I was horrified.  It had some sort of chemically butter-flavored transfat masquarading as butter, and some sort of powdered chemicals on it masquarading as herbs.  In fact, all it was, was transfats, chemicals, wheat lectins and wheat gluten.  I am surprised I didn't drop dead on the spot.

As for the pizza itself:  NOT worth it.  There was something non-food-like about the crust, and the cheese did not seem to be, in fact, cheese.  It looked like cheese, yet tasted like melted plastic.  And the tomato sauce did not seem like tomato sauce.  It seemed like corn syrup, taste-wise.  Suuuuuu-WEEET, much?!!!  The pizza did have some superfoods on it (green pepper, onion, mushroom) but it didn't make up for THE HORROR *lol*.

All I can think about is how I've been detoxing, eating such a pure G2 diet and going through that INTENSE cold that really rid my bod of some deeeeeeeeeep-down toxins, and I go and "re-tox" by choosing to eat pizza.  Aaaaall righty then, Edna.  Way to go.  Setting a great kyosha nim example for the GTD masses there, aren't ya?  Yeah, buddy!

It is very hard to eat a purely pure diet at all times, at least, living in this society it is.  Maybe if we all moved to geodesic domes in Alaska and hunted and gathered our own foods, it would be different.  But, living among the other humans in 2008, it ain't easy being G2.

My view is:  let's not beat ourselves up.  Let's just move on, that was one meal in my case, so just move on to a better day today.  And I am also doing what I promised myself I would on the GTD, and focusing on EATING superfoods versus AVOIDING toxins.  Oh sure, on a daily basis, I do try to avoid the toxins.  But I mean, IF I eat some, like I did last night, I am choosing to think about how I also ate some green pepper, onion, and mushrooms.  Even though I knew we were getting pizza, I made sure it would have some superfoods on it.  So it didn't have to be an "all or nothing", all bad thing.  It was a 97% bad and 3% good thing.

Forward, unafraid!

great post, Twisty! I think there is good reason to emphasize the positive, (superfoods) .I had been very good the whole day but last night I was out of line and ate a bunch of "Mary's gone crackers"...they are so good, but I didn;t need another carb after dinner. It was a comfort food moment.... so I said to myself "just enjoy it and do better tomorrow."
Funkymuse, glad you're back. We can do this.

Yep, me too - I spent the weekend eating assorted things I shouldn't, including wheat   I've been doing so well up to now, but when I'm around other people, the resolve seems to slip.  A chinese restaurant was my real downfall yesterday.......

So I started today with all sorts of intentions of eating fully GTD-compliant then succumbed to a flapjack, not even a homemade one, but a commercially produced, avoid-ridden one.  So the most I can say about today is that it is better than yesterday and I aim for tomorrow to be better than today..........

Sorry to hear you paid such a high price for your slip-up, funkymuse, hope things improve rapidly for you now.

Well if confessions are the thing of the day, I've got one too.  I had company at the ski house and we didn't even ski.   Friday night after driving up in a snow/sleet/frozen rain storm (4 hours instead of 2) we ended up with Chinese.  I ordered beef and snow peas and asked them to leave out the corn starch but who knows.  Then I loaded up on fried rice - yum. Saturday we mostly just sat around.  By 4 we drank pomegranate martinis! Then we went out to dinner and I did have a nice piece of salmon and some rice (and a Cosmo).  Then we went to a club. By then I was just drinking water while everyone else was drinking a local beer.  I don't like beer.  Got home last night and went to a Superbowl party and had lots of chili and cheese and some wine.  I'm exhausted and depressed over the game.

Sorry, Funkymuse, I noticed I had misspelled chamomile after I posted but am just now getting around to correcting it! Hope you don't have a problem gettiing it in caps. I had much rather take it this way instead of tea because I am not really fond of hot drinks of any kind. I order mine from a place in Texas that has a very good name in my book and good prices. http://nourishingfoods.com/ I have used them for quite some time for items I can't get other places. Of course, NAP is my favorite! They may carry chamomile - I haven't checked lately.

Jayney, those "Mary's Gone Crackers" are NOT bad, if that is your worst wagon-falling-off-of, you are still generally strapped to the thing, no worries!

At least you didn't eat FIVE slices of Pizza Hut pizza.  Yup.  You read that one right.  I was hungry, it was there, that's all she wrote.  I took two glucosamines the second I got home, and an elderberry capsule for good measure.  And then I chose to try and NOT obsess over it.  It's done, I took the countermeasures I could take.  Today I'm doing well thus far (other than the fact that it is 2:23 p.m. and I've had NO protein--danger, Will Robinson, danger, danger!).  Tonight I am going to have either ostrich or turkey, with some nice veggies (onion, asparagus).  I'll be okay, even though the toxin I ate was about as bad as they get, other than "true" poisons such as arsnic!  I mean, wheat:  that is playing with fire, I acknowledge.  But it was either that or Chinese food from a non-good Chinese place that is all corn syrup, corn starch, etc., and I decided that actually the pizza would be the lesser of two evils...although did I HAVE to ingest FIVE slices?  I'm guessing not *lol*!  I think it was five, but I lost count.  It might "merely" have been four!

When I go leaping off the ledge, I try to get maximum leapage.  

Anyway, not my best moment, but we all have moments that are not our best.  All we can do is pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and get going along the trail again.  That's how you sustain a diet for life.  Not via perfection.  Via picking yourself up and dusting yourself off when the need arises.  And then you have to keep on singing as you hike on along the trail.  Singing at the top of your lungs* is KEY.  Show those wheat lectins, white sugars, transfats, et al. that you live to fight another day!  Undaunted!

* Or whistling...the key is to do something JAUNTY and spirited!
