I know I've struggled with thyroid issues, but haven't taken armour...maybe should have. Any way after 5 weeks of strict following of this program found me not losing a pound. Went on a 3 week vacation, being away from the home in another part of the world, eating whatever, and I didn't gain a pound! So, I'm seriously wanting to do a complete blood panel of hormone, thyroid, etc. only have no insurance and the closest lab corp is 110 miles away. Any thoughts or suggestions would be wonderful!!! Thanks!
Didn't Pearl mention something in her chapter on hormones about LEF having some (I think it's Life Extension but I could be wrong) I thought she said you can order some panels yourself but I think they can be expensive. You may wanna recheck on that though because I don't have my book in front of me and don't have the greatest memory
have you tried the interval workouts? they create human growth hormone. if you want to read more about that you can search peak 8 on mercola.com and he sheds a lot of light on the subject. just mentioning in case it can help. the peak 8 really helped me. i hadn't shed any weight after baby #7, actually i gained! and that was without eating sugar, bread etc. once i started the intervals (only fast walking and 4 rounds, 3x week) the weight started to drop quickly. and that was before implementing th mama (i was eating a similar way just without the whole knowledge of the carb/fat insulin business).
gs3691: Any good ideas on cooking with quinoa? I tried only once, and I was not pleased with the outcome.

wrapmama14: I love quinoa in soups, add to chili's or broth soups for a more filling high protein meal. I love it but it is bland by itself.

steffanie3: I like it cooked in broth

maggiewonders: Quinoa mixed in with steel-cut oats makes a rockin' breakfast cereal. Wisk a half scoop protein powder w/almond milk & pour over, and then add whatever flavorings, sweetener, toppings - my usual is berries/yogurt/and a sprinkling of chopped walnuts.

shannonlynn: Does anyone have suggestions for a syrup that work on the plan? I originally ordered the Ali's All Natural they suggested in the book, but it is not available anymore. I tried a recipe from Pinterest, but wasn't happy with the taste.

steffanie3: Nature's Hollow makes some syrups (and other things) with xylitol, netrition.com carries them as probably other places online

wannabeold: Is there an error in the Best Macaroon Cookies recipe? They were very dry.

steffanie3: I haven't made zucchini fritters Sophia, I think fritters are typically pretty good sized (deck of cards maybe).
Jul 5, 2014 22:35:50 GMT -5
steffanie3: I don't see a correction on the Macaroons, but I do add a bit more egg whites if they don't seem wet enough to stick together I really enjoy those.

goguengal: What fruits are best to eat. I know berries are low glycemic but what other fruits work.
Jul 12, 2014 23:10:17 GMT -5
steffanie3: ajillbee, I honestly have no idea, it would definitely be good to ask your doctor or midwife.
Jul 14, 2014 2:08:57 GMT -5
steffanie3: goguengal, most are just fine in moderation in an E fuel setting

chezza77: can someone explain how and when I eat the certain foods E S, SE, FP. I dont understand and dont want to get it wrong

steffanie3: Chapter 11 in the book kind of pulls this together, stating at page 111 I think most specifically Most mamas switch from one fuel to the other throughout the day, many start with whole days of one fuel though while they get the concepts down

mommom: Confused about E meals. The Egg White Breakfast Buritto is an E meal. If I add a slice of cantelope it now becomes and S. Is that correct? SO, am I suppose to not "mix" my carbs? Fruit with a "bread" even if it is a plan approved "bread"?
Jul 15, 2014 14:51:33 GMT -5
steffanie3: Cantaloupe is an E food, so a slice or two with an E breakfast is a great choice What is in your breakfast burrito, it might need a carb source. Not sure if it would be easier for you to type it up in a new thread above for more room than shoutbox

mommom: spinach and mushrooms, with lean ham or bacon and a "pinch of cheese"
