I thought I'd try "zoning" my btd meals to lose some weight....but I'm back to just btd-ing my meals. every now and then I'll zone a meal, but it is just too obsessive to keep up with.....true I did it at one time and the weight fell off, but it is just such an exacting diet that the BTD looks like royal indulgence compared to it, of course that depends on how you use the BTD...one could eat too much of anything, but I'm glad to have a "do-able" system to return to.

It's funny. I've been at the same weight for a year (plus or minus one pound) eating whatever I felt like. Overeat, no weight gain. Undereat, no weight loss. I have to figure out a way to bottle that somehow so all my freinds can enjoy it too!  :B

Have you gone grain free?  When is your biggest meal?

Tell us your meals, everything, for the last week.  Don't leave a thing out, and also tell us what time you ate it.  Also, what supplements are you takig.

Also include all types of exercise. I keep hearing over and over that O's *need* exercise.

My weight is the same after being on this for a month and it is aggravating. I figured after giving up breads, sweets, snacks, beer, potatoes and cheese some of it would come off but NOOOO. I do notice my skin being a lot clearer but when will the weight start to come off. I dont eat a lot of the vegetable beneficials due to not liking a lot of them but that cant be the reason why the weight wont come off can it ????

Ugg this is frustrasting

I give up breads and rice (only "cereals" I have) and I lose weight. I eat cereal and my weight remains stable or lose at a miniscule rate. It was not like this before :( and I excercise my share.

Have you tried Deflect? When I used it I lost very fast. Unfortunately I insisted on returning to my bad eating habits >:(

Drinking water also helps.

:K)

All I drink is water and green tea and yes I take deflect before I eat. I am thinking my metabolism is dead and cant ever be revived....HAHAHAHA. Not even CPR would help.
Maybe I will just be fluffy from now on but with just clearer skin.

btd is not necessarily for wight loss, mostly health....weight loss takes a little bit more strategizing, but will be mightily supported by the diet. I fall off the weight loss wagon a lot, but not the btd wagon.....

Since I am not eating all the fattening stuff I was before that were avoids I figured some would come off. I work out at our gym at work at least 3 times a week. Like I said, maybe my metabolism has died and cant be revived. Oh well.

How are your portions/frequencies when compared to  a BTD book? Wrong quantities can matter.

:K)

Posted by: 252 (Guest), Tuesday, October 2, 2007, 11:14pm; Reply: 15
My portions are regular, I dont have a huge appetite and I get full easier these days (partly due to the Monavie I take....it curbs my appetite some).
It has only been a month so I dont want to stress out about it too much. I just want to lose some before next May (it is my 20 yr high school reunion) and this weekend is my b day and I am going to try and still be good food choice wise.

that could make a huge difference!

Hello? JanyeeO here.
I decided to record everything I eat here for the rest of this week anyway....maybe longer.....
KK and Drea as well as onyone else, feel free to make comments. I am in remorse for eating a lot of fattening (tho compliant except for the ice cream) foods at my party last night so I may be eating extra well....check me out.
brkfst: two devilled eggs, (compliant) (equals one egg..) grn tea.

When you know you have someone watching over your shoulder it tends to affect your food choices. Especially for a very short trial. If that's what you are looking for (a conscience) then that's great.

If you are really looking for analysis of what you eat, it's better to just write everything down for a couple weeks (long enough to either get past the conscience stuff or to reinforce good habits!)

Hey Jayneeo, it might be easier if you kept track of your food intake all day (including exercise), and then posted at the end of the day for us to peruse. What do you think?

ETA: This is why I love the SP website so much. It calculates all the foods for you.

thanks, Lloyd, makes sense to track for a couple of weeks then analyze....
Drea ...yeah, likewise, good idea to write down at end of day....then post....deal.

see the problem is remembering.......
ok, yesterday: the devilled egg brkfst (one egg) grn tea
lunch: a half cup sw. potato, cup of kale with evoo, chicken thigh, breaded, (compliant)
snack: cuppa raw vegetables (carrots, celery, radishes)
dinner: flax plus cereal with soymilk, pc of rye toast with butter, 2 oz pc of chicken
later: more sw potato with kale
4 oz red wine (2 oz pinot noir, 2 oz grenache, tasting to please DH)

Ummm.....

Only comment is with both rye toast and breading for chicken, that's a lot of grain if you do it everyday. Not sure what is in the flax ceral besides flax, more grain? Might try using a crisp salad (with celery?) instead of the rye bread at dinner, at least a few times a week.

I agree with Lloyd's comments. I'm glad there are other O secretors willing to help (KK, Lloyd). By the way, what kind of exercise did you do yesterday? If nothing else, I suggest you pick up a pedometer and aim for 10000 steps per day.

It also depends on how much you weigh now, how much you'd like to lose, and how fast you want to do it (i.e. how many pounds per week). This is another place where the SP website is helpful.

Much thanks, Drea and Lloyd! I realize the comment is spot on....and hearing it from others is helpful!

Also, you used no beneficial meat/fish. I think this is important if you are trying to lose weight.

Ok, thanks Lloyd, good point, you got me to go out and buy halibut for dinner. I have not been a fish fan, but this is the 2nd time I have cooked and enjoyed halibut. I panfried it in butter, OK, that is gonna be good, and squeezed lemon on it. With that I had sw. potato and kale. Ok that's dinner.

OK...I just started posting my days food yesterday and I realized that I am eating too many starches, grains, tho compliant ones. Big surprise!!! (not) In other words, I kinda know that but don't wanna face it.....so what is the point of posting my meals for advise...when I could give my own advise? Its not lack of knowledge, I see now.....its the will to tweak my choices toward wight loss......
I give myself a pat on the back for eating well and making good choices up to a point, but there is another step to ascend...........thanks to all for enlightening me.

She was referring to another diet system. Stick with BTD.

Posted by: jayneeo, Saturday, October 6, 2007, 12:54am; Reply: 33
oh yeah, zoning means to me, balancing carb, fats and proteins in a specific ratio which is a weight loss strategy....a difficult one. (you can do it with your own choice of foods...but hard...) Dr. Barry Sears. But like Lloyd says, stick with btd....the Sears website is terrible compared to this one, too.

I am learning so much here and even went off to the book store to check out the rest of the books. I have ER4YT older addition. I think I need Cook right and Live Right.
I did need to improvish tonight and used the gluten free oat flour I have(yes GF).
The chicken cultets came out great.
I had more rice and the flour today and my brain is not crazy like it was yesterday.
I had to get out of bed last night and eat 2 handfuls of cold rice! Just so I could relax and sleep.
Is this normal or do I need to make sure I get all these carbsd in too?

You are in an adjustment period. Great that you are feeling better! Along the way you will adjust your eating habits to be closer to following the general guidelines for your type, sex and racial background but there is no need to try to do it all at once. Lots of O's have a hard time cutting down on grains, it was easy for me because I had had a background of low-carb dieting in the past.

Feel free to start a new thread anytime there is something you want to ask about your diet. Sometimes things get lost at the end of another thread.

its hard for me...its a comfort food thing...but I'm cutting back. Drgnwng...some say eat a carby meal at nght for the serotonin...to help you sleep. However that doesn't have to be grain...can be sw. potato or butternut squash.....etc.

I didn't have a big problem giving up grains. I started ages ago on WW CORE diet. then went to another one that introduced many non wheat grains. Then we decided to go Gluten free with my youngest for serve joint pains.
So I just kinda tweaked things more for ER4YT.
It has been a slow transition each stage but it is working.
I just wish I could do it less expensive. I am also allergic to fish.

I shop at whole foods and I can get a great whole chicken, free range, on sale every few weeks or so, and I buy a couple and freeze one...every little bit helps. We love whole chicken on the grill with nothing but sea salt rubbed all over it. Can do same in oven.
