Posted by: Goldie, Tuesday, February 22, 2011, 2:48pm
I received a food chart.. THANK YOU SANDY!!!!! and then I fixed it to suit ME..(easy after you showed me the way..... I love it.. its one page -- and I will email it to anyone who will email me.  

Looking at it I have nearly freedom to eat.

I discovered that I can have much more food then I have been allowing me.. ( no worry I will be careful) because what I was allowing myself, kept my weight steady.. I would like to loose some but for that I have exercize more..It has a space on the chart also!!! (thanks again) its a good reminder ..

I also need less water, nice.. since I don't care for it any way.. and hardly drink a cup - but now I see it in writing and its a good reminder.. (Guilt setting in ) ;D

I can have fruit only 2 a day.. but GUILT free at last.  :P lipsmacking

::) I could have 1 slice of bread (which I will not eat) 2 x a day....... this is where I have a question.. could I have lets say another fruit in place of grain carbs?  would that balance the sugar the same way????? This has been my question for a year. ??)

BUT the biggest CHANGE is that I could have 6 oz of milk  :o( no way I will go near that- ( I get  stomach pain)  but a bit of cheese -which I am now allowed also - will apparently by ok.. :-/  

and if I do this right, then I will get a dessert that is totally compliant.. EXCEPT one should not eat it with a meal, but rather for 4 o clock tea!!! ;D

THANK YOU DR D'ADAMO!  even after 16 years, you rock!


I love this SWAMI -- I want to marry him-- if I invite you will you come??  8)

Interesting about the water. I have to force myself to drink it everyday.  The other stuff I'm much of the same mindset. I won't touch bread and milk.

I've finally gotten to where I don't miss bread or milk, so I never even think about them.  Milk, I used in cereal which I no longer eat for breakfast, or in coffee which I no longer drink [oops, I lied - I had a capuccino a couple of weeks ago, but that was only once in several months.  :B].  Artisanal breads look divine, but I know that eating them is not worth the consequences.  I still have a sweet tooth, but I can be fairly compliant with that if I use almond flour and agave syrup.  And I still eat dark chocolate which has sugar in it, but that is the only sugar I consume now.  I think if I ate a Reese's cup or a donut I would gag now.  Sort of like quitting smoking - you think you want a cigarette years after having given up smoking, but if you lit one up you would hate everything about it.  It's easier to train the body to be compliant - it wants those superfoods - but the mind has a mind of its own.   :-/

I need to get there.. I am looking to stop all deserts while on vacation.. that is a new step, but hopefully quite doable.. once I will develop  the new habit of sying no .. after 2 weeks it starts to set in.. I hope I could make that a hardend rule..

That didn't stop me from starting again many years ago after I had quit.  Now I know I can't have even a puff.  Maybe it's like that with the avoids we so loved.  I had a bit of bacon in a meal last night (been pork free for over a year now) and it still tasted great.

I have lost all respect for smokers......
having smoked myself and weaning myself off the most idiotic habit in the world!!

my mom still doesn t get it!! she invariably lights up her cigarette in front of me.....
glad we can live outdoors 99% of the time here......I just get up, and take a walk around the garden while she s done.

Giving up smoking was extremely difficult, like giving up heroin or something.  It was for me anyway.  I wore a nicotine patch for about 30 minutes and had to take it off - it drove me nuts.  I had to quit smoking cold turkey. I was only able to do it because I finally really wanted to, but it was hard.  I have compassion for people who can't quit, but I can't be around their cigarette smoke.  It really turns me off now, makes my eyes burn and water as if I had never even been a smoker.

DenverFoodie, I wish you hadn't said that about the bacon.  ;)

Now I have something to compare.. (the food crting page I share by email)

one week of foods that told me something about me..

and then I go and change my eating HABITS all together. with a plan..  and you know what:  IT's working also..

I can see that even having changed the foods I still have many caloric food values .. and not enough to drink water alone.. keeping track really helps me ..

Where/how did you get this chart, and how exactly do you use it?

Hey goldie,
Good for you, I just bought SWAMI, still on sale.  I'm a little nervous about doing my fingerprints but thanks to Lola I emailed the video to my home computer.  The first time I tried it I didn't do it quite right & was staring @ it & the examples which I'm not sure if I saw examples in the book.  I had much difficulty figuring what they were.  I definitely don't think they were the ridges or radials that look like hills or mountains.  Anyway, I'm anxious to do it probably I'm guessing next weekend.

Is the food chart just for O's ?

A chart would really help me.

I'll PM you.

WOW Lola!! This out of an administrator?? Isn't it a bit critical and judgemental? I think everyone picks their poisons....even you. I'm not sure these boards are for those types of opinions and judgements. Same goes for the bi polar comment on another thread. People are sure to lose respect for you with those types of comments

Using a chart has made a huge difference for me as well (I'm on my 2nd week)....

It's keeping me accountable to measuring out my portions of foods and shows me the areas that I tend to be weak in

I find it is helping me to have a lot of variety and is helping with the anxiety of wondering did I eat too much or too little

It has brought me a sense of peace  :)

the way to choose the person to marry is asking your self.. after sex and love are gone will I still RESPECT the person enough to stay in the relationship.

for my opinion true love is always without any expectancy..... :D

LOVE is not enough.. LOVE IS EXPECTANCY always.. !

To have any relationship last over time, you must at the very least show repect IF the person deserves it..  IF not then get out of the relationship.

we are all 50/50 responsible on how we are treated..

when I am not treated right I have two ways of dealing.. I ask my self the question: Am I repectful?  then I ask is the other person showing respect- at least that?  

Like in the case of a recent situation.. I had made a promise to someone and did not keep it.. that person very respectfully called on me to explain.. I explained and then I acted on my promise.. Respect restored.

on the other hand recently a person suggested several times that I disrespected her 19 year old son trying to make some money from me by EARNING it.  Mom thought it demeaning to teach her child.. sorry the MAN of 19 intelligent and knowing what to do.. but leaving a lot to be desired.  (like cleaning up after him self- or open his eyes and pick up trash from the floor) or finishing any task to the end...

Three times the mom proceeded to screamingly tell me that I was demaning of her son.. three times I defended my position..giving her the benefit of not feeling well, of not being comfortably trusting that she knew me well enough over 15 years,,,, that I would not 'hurt' her sons feelings' .

The fourth time I no longer answered.. why?  because it was obvious that she did not RESPECT me.. or my actions.. respect is now gone both ways.. friendship over..

Respect you earn through actions... this mom proclaimed to love me as a friend and her son .. but she did not show love, nor respect when she spoke on his behalf.. (he has vocal cords and has no issues defending himself when needed) She showed no respect for him nor love .. her actions spoke louder than any words towards me..

Relationships TAKE more then LOVE.. it takes respect for a relationship to work.. love and sex are transitory.. but a person deserving respect and giving it in good faith is worthy of some considerations.. so long as it does not feel like sacrifice..(less then ) once it does then it's time to get out.  

'Sacrifice' is different, it is intended to be bejond question: like a baby needs a mothers sacrifice to take care of it, but that in turn, should not 'feel' like a sarifice.. that should be done for the love of doing it.  Not only for the child but for the love of both..  thus one builds RESPECT to last a life time.

Sex is still part of a healthy marriage though. A completely unsatisfying sex life leads to an unhappy marriage. Some people make lousy lovers but great friends.
