I find that it's better for me just not to have things like yogurt, cheddar and ice cream in the house, because I just cannot practice moderation with these foods.  I have even been known to eat Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk right out of the can with a spoon.  I can eat half a can in one sitting, making myself sick in the process yet not being able to stop.  Any other Hunters having trouble letting go of dairy?


You really sound like a Hunter.  Dairy is a REAL PROBLEM, you just have to tackle it head on!  I was dairy free mostly up until the mid 2000s then in 2004 started drinking kefir, a cultured dairy product.  Then was dairy free again 2006-2008 then started back up with the dairy 2008-2011, always for a few months at a time.  It's just not worth it!  The bloating, fatigue, and weight gain can really drive you crazy.  Especially since dairy is lower calorie so it will never make sense why you are gaining.  I've analyzed and think the reason I got hooked on kefir is because of the ease & convenience.  Just pour it in a glass and go!  For a few hours you're fed and can go on to the next thing.  Unfortunately, the true Hunter diet requires some cooking, planning and actual *chewing* of solid food.

It's a funny thing about foods that are "forbidden."  They are the ones you really crave, as in an addiction, and the ones you just can't eat moderately.  Now, I do crave/love beef, and I can even eat it for breakfast, but I'll eat one 5 oz. patty and I am fine.  I don't feel the need to eat an entire pound of it in one sitting. Neither do I give it another thought.  

But then there are dairy foods, which are forbidden for Os, which I also crave/love, but as I posted earlier, I can't have just one serving and be satisfied.  It's always...GIVE ME MORE!!!  I am finding the same thing with wheat.  I could down a whole loaf of crappy white bread, one awful slice after another. Let me live on vanilla yogurt and Wonder bread and I would be one happy camper, until my skin breaks out, and I feel like sh*t, and am bloated beyond measure.

Off topic, but, hooray! I graduated from "Winter: Hidden potential" to "Early Spring: Awareness, desire."   Must have been that eleventh post.

I tend to be very chatty on message boards, and I think I got past "winter: hidden potential" my first day posting here! Or at least my first week.

I do get a few cheeses on my SWAMI, but in such tiny portions that I just can't stick to them.  2 oz, 3 times a week? If I have compliant cheese in the house, I eat way more than SWAMI says I should, and then I get stuffed up and easily angered. I have no clue how my body would respond to cheeses if I actually stuck to the "condiment" portions I'm supposed to have, but I'm better off sticking to butter and ghee and leaving the milk protein out of my diet.

I can't even remember how my body responded to wheat, other than how sick I can get from even tiny portions of it. But I do know that I managed to cut down grain portions quite effectively when I was low-carbing, which gave me the strength to give gluten-free a try. Hard to cut out wheat when it's a staple, but when it's only a condiment, it was easier to do. I can easily over-eat neutral carbs, such as white rice- it just doesn't fill me up, though it feels good going down, then I'm hungry again in an hour.
