gluten alergy

Post  3jaysmom on Thu Oct 07, 2010 5:39 pm

They have lots of new products that are gluten free. They even have cupcake mixes and quick bread mixes, and stuff like that in our regular supermarket, right with the "regular" mixes like betty crocker. My husband has a sensitivity to gluten (and lactose, ugh) so cooking used to be a nightmare, I always had to go to specialty shops. Now I can find stuff everywhere. Try going lactose free for a week, see how you feel, and then gluten free and see how you feel- that way you'll know what it is. My husband felt yucky both weeks, so he got tested, and had both. We try to stay away from the stuff as much as we can, and its made a world of difference for him.

I was looking at my last post and thought, I was not 100% yesterday! But, I forgot Phil, who started the forum, is in Australia, so the "days:" are different. Anyway, yesterday was not a good day, 5bite wise, but was just fine calorie wise. If eat too much, I try to make sure I dont go over 1200 cals for the day, so my "binge" doesn't cause me to gain any weight back. If I eat nothing but snickers, I dont cheat. If I try to have 5bites of food, I do! Its as simple as that. Had coffee for breakfast this am, and a snickers for lunch. Planning to have one for dinner, too. I want to keep with the snickers tomorrow (easy) but have our weekly trip to five guys after our workout on Sat ( I know, burgers and fries after working out, the irony) and a Christmas party on Sat to deal with. The only strategy I have is to try to stay with snickers, and keep it at that. If I say I'm going to have 5 bites of the burger, I will not be able to stop, and if I have food at the party, I will not be able to keep track, so that wont end up well. I would love to stay with snickers untill Christmas, but I have yet to go through a single weekend with snickers only, so not realistic. If I want to eat something, I just tellmyself that I will be able to have it after Christmas. My new mantra. Just like when the kids keep asking me for stuff and I say "wait for christmas!!!" If I can at least do it Mon-Fri, and keep cals under controll during the weekend, I should still be ok.

Its funny, the expectations of this diet for me are so high! I weighed myself this AM, and was like "only a pound and a half for two days?" I actually made myself lol. Um, in what universe is 3/4 of a pound a day loss considered a fail?I would LOVE to lose 16 pounds in the next 2 weeks. If I can get through this weekend cheat free (fingers crossed) the Mon-Fri after that will be easy, because Aaron will be on travel, and the food I make for my kids (rotisserie chicken every night, lol) wont tempt me. so cheat free Dec 2- Dec 16. We are going out to dinner that night, so that will be my "break" and then Dec 17-25, its on!!! To be 20 pounds lighter than today on Christmas day would be AMAZING!!! And, not to mention, crazy close to goal. I'll re-evaluate my goal on new years, I might want to lose a few more....but I need to focus on the next two weeks first!!

well, ive done half that so far......i have the worst pms that isnt seeming to let up. but, i need to do this, reguardless of my cravings. I got a new coffee maker, wich doesnt sound like a "diet tool" but for me it is!!! No more drive thru means no more temptations for egg and cheese sammies!! one cup of reg in the am, switch to decaf at lunch.

I just measured the waist on my pre-children shorts, and they are 8!! inches smaller than my waist now....what? My weight isnt that off.....and i've been working out for two years scince my last child so, my midsection shouldnt be THAT different! they arent even tight in the legs at all, but the button is about 2 inches from buttoning...I think I need to do double workouts for a while. I think im going to try the calanetics one i got and never used, untill my tracy anderson ones come in. we're going to florida in Feb, and I dont want to buy new shorts! i will fit in my pre pregs!!!

coffee coffee coffee coffee Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

3jaysmom, I am glad u are still around because I see a lot of spam posts on this forum. I was away for awhile and fell of the wagon but recommit again and lost 16 lbs now. I weigh 132 lbs. LOL. My goal is 110 lbs. Let's do it together Smile Let's support each other! I was doing the 5BD strictly for 5 days and this morning I wake up very dizzy like I am about to faint. So I had breakfast. And I will take it easy 3 x 5 bites per day until I reach my goal. The dizzy spells are scary I feel like I want to faint and no energy to do anything. I have work today and a weekend trip coming soon. If I do it too strictly I am afraid I wouldn't be able to do anything. Sad

OK, I just did the first session of the TA dvd. 40 min of cardio (dance cardio sequence 1x 4) and then the mat workout day 1- 10 sequence. OMG, I'm jello. I've been lifting weights for years, and this is hands down the hardest workout i've ever done. my arms are so weak that its hard to type this. if this doesnt whip my but into shape, i dont know what will! 1 1/2 hours of ass kicking Razz

its 30 days, i can live through it!

Great you doing work out! Im so proud of you! You so determined! I also did some strength training yesterday. Honestly feel a bit guilty because of the extra bites and because doing 3x 5bites instead of 2x5bites. Holiday season is coming soon and many foods will come. Let's stay strong and keep the bites 5-7 maximum. Hahahaha.

Well, as soon as Aaron got home, I tipped on the wagon, not fell OFF the wagon, but just tipped a bit, lol. I'm having problems with the workout, I just am having such a hard time fitting it in, I have to find a time that works, and make it part of my schedule during the day. With the holidays and all the shopping and activities and stuff, I've been more exhausted than ever. I really dont have time to mess around, I have our Florida trip on the third week of Feb, and I want to wear my shorts from a few summers ago, not my ones from last year......strange to want to fit into "old" clothes. I have a pair haning in my bathroom, I should have a pair in my car, so when I am tempted to go to the drive through, the.....actually thats not the problem. i do fine on my own, its the family....i was doing great untill aaron came home, i need to tell him that were back to code red so he can help me. I need HELP. lol. i need to go to bed, im so tired im zoning out Neutral

It's okay get some early sleep. I remember Dr Lewis (the 5 bite diet founder) said that sleep also aids weightloss. So when you sleep a lot it also helps Smile

2 days ago I also indulge in late night supper + dessert! Ugh the bread butter warm pudding with cream is soo hard to resist. I gain 1 lbs after that LOL. Let's keep going! Hugs to you. Tonight is Xmas dinner and I will keep it 7-8 bites maximum.

Go you! Im so proud you lost 50 lbs already! Yay! Me also gain 1-2 lbs this Christmas. But I am determined to get back on the wagon asap and take control. Like Dr Lewis said "Why WOULDN'T you just follow the 5BD through to completion? Its just a few days to weeks of "inconvenience" for a lifetime of empowerment!"

This is so motivating me! I know I am tempted with so much food around me and sweets, yummy desserts. But..we have a goal. It's okay to take a break and jump right back on the wagon asap! We do it together! I love you

Sooooo, 35 days untill florida=35 days untill i have to wear shorts, will i be ready???? can i lose 30 in 35? ha i've said i was going to lose this last 30 (25, 30, whatever) 30 times at least. did my treadclimber workout this am, felt GREAT!!!!!!!!! also, i went around to a few of the weight machines that i used so religiously months ago, tried them on the last weight i can remember lifting, and I DID IT. So exciting, i assumed i lost all of the muscle i gained. now, i am more motivated than ever to keep it up. i think my new workout routine is going to be:

cardio:
treadclimber- sat, sun, tues, thurs
ta dance cardio mon, wed, fri - if any days will be skipped it will most likely be mon&wed, as those are the days i work

strength:
ta 30 day method workouts with extra abs- as many days per week as i possibly can, hopefully 6

i dont plan on keeping this grueling workout up past florida, as it will take up about 2 hrs a day- but i would love to do this untill then, bootcamp style. I want to 5bite, obviously. so im going to have to keep it simple- maybe go to snickers for a few days to get moving. the bootcamp codename is aero13 my sister and i always make up stupid names for our "bootcamps" so her husband doesnt get irritated hearing about it all the time. this way she justs calls me and says "aero13 not going well!" and we dont dwell on it. we are such dorks...

So, day 2 of 2 meal 5 bite. its actually been the mcdonalds oatmeal with apples and cranberries, sooooo good. it is more like 10 bites, but the cals are lower than snickers, and as long as i keep the portions consistent, i think i'm fine. i think this will work well because it has 5 grams of fiber.......something that was severely lacking in the "snickers fast" and, i LOVE the oatmeal, so i should be able to stick to it. working out tonight when aaron gets home.

Hi 3jaysmom. I'm back and so glad to see you here. Excited to try McDonald's new oatmeal. Is it only available during bfast hours? I absolutely adore Jamba Juice's oatmeal and my local one serves it all day. There is a coupon on their website for $1 oatmeal until Jan. 19, 2011. Highly recommend the banana w/ brown sugar or the blackberry one. I've been eating 1 a day since the promotion started.
