Well...yesterday was interesting...I ate two helpings of the chili at about 1 or 2 and wasn't hungry for the rest of the day! That's so unusual for me....I usually "feel" hungry every few hrs. I've gravitated to lower and lower carb, and higher fat, which is filling me up and making me feel like I could go all day on just a couple meals. Hmmm. Interesting.

Yes, this is definitely the best part of the "cycle"! When it happens to me it gives me a fantastic sense freedom - freedom from cravings and the illusion that I am on vacation from the need to plan the next meals... for a little while.

Day 8 sugar/wheat free: I struggled tonight not to eat sugar. Meals were awkward, dinner was too early (4pm), so I was hungry again at 7:30p. I ate two spoonfuls of almond butter, but I usually eat it with agave -- didn't tonight, but it took some effort.

I think it might have something to do with my "period". My periods these days are every two or three months and only last one or two days. What ever.

Day 8 is almost coming to a close. Whew.

almond butter is the greatest! I salt it. I'm not saying it's unsalted, but I like a lot of salt.( My bad!)

I understand about salt, believe me! I used to be on the "salt advisory council" (that's a joke). While I still salt some foods like grains and eggs, I get most of my salt in the lemon/sea salt water that I drink daily.

Almond butter, at least the stuff I get from my local hfs, is freshly ground in store (not sure if it's salted or not) and I like the sweetness of the almond flavor. So I wouldn't salt it. But other almond butters I've had (from jars) I might salt.

I had to cut down on salt as I had high BP at one time and lowering salt was part of the control stategy. I now buy coarse sea salt which is pretty well useless for putting on anything.

Day 9! Whoo-hoo! Although I do have a low grade head/neck/shoulder ache this morning. Not sure what that's about. I can now look at the bowl of candy on the counter and not feel anything.

KK here, Day 52 grain-free.

I think the "might have" moved 1/4 to 1/2 a pound.  I'll try again first thing tomorrow morning.

What kinds of things have you noticed by going grain-free, KK?

Btw, I'm curious as to why you are still dusting with rice flour. Isn't rice a grain?

Great job on persevering, too!

Sssshhh! It's a

Yes it is a grain.  We grind it fresh from basmati (white or brown) rice.

I guess you could say I'm 99.9% grain free.  Dusting with rice flour gives our protein source a nice browning & crunchy taste, out of the pan.  I'd say the amount of rice flour I get with a turkey or lamb patty is about 1 tablespoon if that.  We don't have turkey or lamb every day, so that % is close enough to grain-free for me.

Day 10 and I'm still on track. I've been eating a lot of nuts and dried fruit, though. After dinner I really wanted some agave, but instead, I ate a couple of spoonfuls of almond butter and some dried apples. I feel better now.

The only time I am craving grain, is when I watch one of my favorite shows:

AMAZING
WEDDING
CAKES.  

Just love watching what these people can do with wheat and sugar.

Day fifty-something grain-free.

Salmon salad & celery & baby roma tomatoes for dinner.

Ta!! You got me then!! Glad I ate the rest of the ricecakes today... They are so evil & way too hard to resist...

I am also gonna try going mould free too so will keep a log of those foods I am avoiding, as per my comment in the "Where is Symbi" thread...

This will be a great way to be accountable heaven knows I need it!! I am just as likely to eat dark choc for tea on ocassions - esp as Mr P travels so much for work, so I don't always have to cook for him *sigh*

This is a matter of individuality...  I gotta have my grains or I don't get enough energy food...  Lunch for me is often peanut butter on rice cakes and vegetables...

I admire anyone who makes the proper choices for their needs!  Keep doing well.

well, ABJoe, this an O thing....esp. for healing arthritis or various other things....
my arthritis book says O's don't need any grains except maybe manna bread....which is delish, but doesn't work that well for me....I then try to eat the whole loaf!
OK...brk: 2 eggs, half a sw. potato, fried.
Tonite the book club will be at my house....my club is Book and Cook! I am making Pomegranate Soup for the novel of same name (with recipes)...it has grain....rice...I will simply appear to eat it, while ingesting as little rice as possible...
and I'm making baklava as well   ....wish me fortitude!!!!!

Tempting fate, eh???

My daughter made baklava several times one year for her 4-H cooking demonstrations...  It is really good, but too sweet for me.  Also, need to be quick with the filo dough so it doesn't dry out.

Much success with the cooking and even more with avoiding the temptations...
