Do you have other cheeses on your gatherer plan, like quark, farmers, paneer, cottage cheese, these are on mine, need to still buy some.

Sounds like you chose, well Jaynee0

Oct. 3rd Glucose 110 7:00AM

Had same breakfast, but added one egg and change fruit to pineapple.

10:00 Glucose 49-dangerously, low, had

3-6.75 pkg grape juice
1slice- 12 grain toast w/butter & 1 tsp. grape jelly, I know it is high enough now, I feel much better. This was the first time, I seem to have fading out of the person who was in front of me and knew I had to check glucose, immediately.  Could barely do it.

My ideas about it, glucose was lower than yesterday to begin with, and I added one more egg, so that absorbed some of the glucose that the carbs I had in the oats and pineapple gave me.  Will work on that.

12:00  had same supper I had yesterday for lunch today, except for added green veggies.

2:00PM 1/2 Bakers Unsweetened chocolate
       1   pkg stevia
       1C  water

Well Dinner Time approaches
Glucose 177 took 34 U 70/30 novolog
Dinner

Salmon           4oz.
dill pickle slices diced 3slices
salad dressing   3T
pineapple chunks 1C

I have energy and feel wide awake, but I am concerned about late this evening, to see if my glucose drops again.  We'll see.  Hope not.

Will be adjusting, don't quite have it figured out, yet, calories too high,for me.

Good Morning to all, thank you for suggesting this log, I think it is going to be very informative and helpfull to the newbies like me.

I tried the stevia in my tea and "urg" I do noy know if this will become an acceptable taste as replacement for the many years of aspartime sweetner I have been useing. Although this is an superfood on my list and I suppose I will just have to get used to it. Is there perhaps any other acceptable sweetner that tastes better? I even noticed that the chewing gum that I have been chewing on for so many years has aspartame.

I would also like to know if it is acceptable to replace the whole fruit for unsweetened fruit juice and what amount of juice would replace a whole fruit?

Was it difficult to replace normal wheat bread with the rice/flax/quiona/millet flour products.
I have printed my recipies and relaized that I will have to start bakeing now. I am not the worlds best baker and have so little time on my hands as i have a 10 hour day with traveling, working and traveling home. I am lucky that I do like excercising and this is another 1-2 hours per day.

When do you do all your bakeing? as I missed sandwiches and muffins so much last week, I frantically went and bought all the differnt flours and did some bakeing this week-end, but was not very impressed with the taste and texture of the muffins and millet breakfast squres. Am I doing something wrong or is it just an adjustment and will I get used to it?

Skillie, you will get used to the new foods! I prefer them now. I recently made some terrific banana-flaxmeal muffins (gluten free!) that I found the recipe for on the internet...just type in what ever....banana-flax muffin, or blueberry flax muffin, and use rice flour. Banana is a blk dot for me, but I figured it sweetens the muffin and is better than sugar...I used stevia (you gotta measure according to stevia's ratio to sugar) and added a bit of molasses (superfood on my swami)...anyway, welcome to the gathererer's camp!
Geminisue, I have some blk dot cheeses that I use occassionally....

try this flax bread focaccia recipe with your compliant grains, tweaking to your taste......you may try adding less egg for starts.

Back again didn't realize I skipped a day, probably because I went shopping and was tired.

It sure takes time eating this way! At least for me.  Hope I can get it easier somehow.

I put my 1 cup servings of fruit in containers in frig for a few days.
I did the same with my 1/2 c servings of beans (butter & grt Northern)
Today I used the food processor to grate my celery, green pepper and mushrooms, had to stop, was tired, still have the onions to go. I chunked one cup first, then threw it in and remeasured it grated, it was still one cup, so that was fine.  I'm assuming since this is live food, we eat it raw, is that correct?  Or can we also cook with it?  Is it better for us one way or the other, just in case I can take it either way.  I never ate five cups of live food a day until now.

I'm feeling pretty weak right now, so I won't be posting earlier meals, for dinner I plan on eating

6 oz salmon with 1 cup, celery, 1 cup green pepper, 1 cup of onion and 1 tsp curry, cilantro and parsley, 1 cup of whole grain pasta, cooked and mixed together with (something, not sure what yet)  It should be good.

I made borscht for dinner tonite. I had never made it before, so I consulted the internet and picked a good recipe. Used chicken stock from my freezer and a turkey breast, two yellow beets and one red, carrot , celery, herbs, spices, and it was so good with sour cream. Ok, don't tel "swami"  about some of the stuff, but I thought it was a pretty healthful dish.

Hallo Jayneeo,Geminisue thank you for the reply. I am gald to see that I am not just being fussy. It is also enlightning to see that some "cheating" is going on with the more experienced dieters.  Thank you for the muffin and focasia recipe idees I will certainly be trying those out.
This is how I am going to monitor my daily intake, I took my swami diet and deleted the items, only using the headlines I made colums for Mon - Sunday next to the daily servings. I will now make x in the colums when I eat the foods suggested.  This is the only way that I will be able to get myself to eat all the suggested foods as I am so used to skimping on food.I did a 8km jog last night and plan to go to the gym for a sauna and treadmill work tonight. I see that the Gatherers should actually be doing weights, so I will start incorporating some circuit work,,,,time,,,,  I must say that I am feeling so much more energetic allready, this is week 2 for me.     I had 2 hardboiled eggs and 2 rice cakes spread with marmite for breakfast and 1/2 trailmix as a snack , no cravings,,,great news!!  May you all have a great day and Geminisue I hope you feel better soon

Mine says yam is a super food, so if it is actually a sweet potato it will probably be a neutral, as on mine it is not a black dot or avoid,
I am using Genotype now, not swami, yet.

Breakfast was 5g cooked oats with a teaspoon Honey.
Lunch is Beef sausage ans salad
Dinner will be Home made Pizza made with rice flour base.  I have had no cheese yet this week, so I think it is time for a lovely Pizza.
Did 30 min treadmill and 10 min in the sauna last night. As it is Friday I will not be doing any excersize.  The week-end I would like to try some more of the swami baking recepies. Could anyone please tell me if I can replace Flaxseed flour with rice flour in the Cranberry muffin recipe? As I just cant find flaxseed flour only the seeds.

Hey Skillie...it is the seeds that you want so that you can grind them yourself.  It is very easy.  Put about half a cup of whole flaxseed in a blender/bullet/coffee grinder.  You need an appliance that has the blades sticking up.  Grind until desired consistency and voila.   Freshly ground flaxmeal.

Today I'm doing alright, but decided to try and pay closer attention to what I'm eating, and the amounts of what I am eating.  

My glucose numbers are terrific, right know, but my weight isn't, it went up slightly, and not to happy about that, but I have a feeling it is because of leading a sedentary life style, due to health.  So I am going to try to eat on the low side of number of ounces, and see what happens, and if that doesn't show a lost in a week, I will, also go on the low side of portions per week.

I am eating diamonds and super foods the majority of the time, had a few avoids this week, but figured no big thing, but maybe it was, so will avoid avoids, knowingly, that's my goal this week.
