Hi I am a 43 year old mom of 9 with one on the way waiting for my book and eager to start my journey. My request is that someone might give me a list of products that will be essential for me to buy so I can have them on hand when I start. We live in a rural area with no health food stores so I will need to order from amazon. Thank you so much. Ashley
The essentials will vary from person to person. For me, I want to eat sweet things, so the nustevia pure extract powder is an essential. Also the Swanson whey protein powder which I use in my fuel pull smoothies. Those are probably the only three essential special ingredients for me.
Coconut oil is nice to make skinny chocolate and use in many of the baked good recipes. A lot of people find the glucomannan critical for gravies and sauces, but I don't make many of those, and it's not essential to the smoothies. I do also appreciate having Dreamfields pasta for a once a week mac & cheese treat; that's available at many Walmarts. I also like the low-carb tortillas with only ~5 g net carbs, which I also find at my local Walmart.
Check out this blog with a great "quick start" guide. Or join the THM Facebook group. They have files posted with all sorts if helpful hints...including recommendations of what to buy while you're waiting for your book to arrive. HTH!

steffanie3: Broth based soups are great for this time of year and a FC I did a modified "cabbage soup diet" soup with some boneless skinless chicken for protein, I just searched for an online recipe and left out some things if I remember right, I love cabbage

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?

steffanie3: Hmm, on the upper right as long as you are logged in there should be a reply button, but you sure can start a new thread if you want

grammalynda: I figured it out-when you do a search it takes you to the conversation-there is not a reply button-but the name of the thread is listed above the date and if you click that it takes you to the thread and the reply button. thanks stefanie3 and rebekahrl

glammom: Any suggestions as to where to purchase MCT oil? All new stuff to me. Purchase many items for plan on-line, some at Kroger, some at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Any suggestions of locations to purchase MCT oil at brick and mortar stores?

steffanie3: GNC would likely have MCT or a health food store that carries Now Brand, that is one easy to find kind.

ttate53787: I have been put on a low residue diet. I am only allowed to eat refined grains. In order to follow this plan now would I just have to give up all breads? Any guidance on this type of diet? Thanks.

steffanie3: I haven't heard of a low residue diet, maybe make a post of a suggested menu you have been given and we could help?
