Today I told myself my meal will taste better if I don't have a snack -- so i didn't, and it did. (But I actually did go looking for a Balance Bar that hubby had taken to work. Go hubby!)

P.S. I verified that is was, in fact, better than cocoa krispies -- and Life actually only has 6 g sugar in 1.5 cups. Not bad for cereal. (CK is, like, 12g per .75 cups.)

PPS Stop worrying about carbs!

I don't think so. There are wiser choices, but it isn't Cocoa Crispies.

Well, to add to the thread -- My mom died 3 years ago in August of lung cancer. (I was 36). Truthfully, my mother hated to cook and saw it as total subjugation of women. I have always loved to cook, and it was years before she came to appreciate my love for it. (I am a part time food writer.) My mom...

Wow, thanks so much, everyone. I have been trying to tell myself that I am eating "enough" to help make the panicky feeling go away. I do get low blood sugar on occasion, which is made worse if I eat simple carbs at the previous meal. (Pancakes and things like that are the kiss of death for me; two ...

Hunger and Meals

Hi folks - Just about one week on plan here -- and I am wondering how you all handle not overconsuming when it is time to sit down and eat.

What a great discussion. It is clear that some sort of mind-shift has to take place to lose weight and keep it off. (Both on a personal level, and a cultural level if society is going to stop warring with food.) I love reading about Buddhism -- Pema Chodron is one of my favorite authors; I highly re...

I just had my first S days as well. They were freeing, and I didn't overdo it I don't think. I think they were just how I 'normally' eat (and what keeps me 30# overweight) but steady (no yo yoing). I can see how having more N days would result in an eventual, slowish loss. I do kind of dread tomorro...
