Hi! Haven't read book - it's on order. But in the mean time am reading up on it as much as possible. It appears there are a number of items that will be part of menus, the eating plan, etc. like Glucomannan Powder, stevia, Chana Dal Beans, certain greens for the smoothies, etc.
I'd like to make a shopping list so I'm stocked up to follow this without interruption due to missing an ingredient or anticipated food item that is routine for this plan.
IS there a shopping list of sorts? OR has someone made one up that is willing to share?
These are some of the things I didn't have that I bought and use the most:
Nunaturals stevia (make sure its pure) get it at Vitacost.com Glucomannan powder whey protein (swanson premium brand) flax or flax meal defattened peanut flour (I put a TBS in my Fat Stripping Frappe) almond flour egg whites almond milk low fat or fat free cottage cheese Greek Yogurt laughing cow cheese wedges (although Now I make Serene's Transformer Cheese Sauce more than use this its cheaper to make and you can use it in allot of the same things, for that you need the sharpest cheese you can find)
Some other things you might have already but might use more of are
Cabbage (it makes a nice noodle replacement cut very thin) Cauliflower (I like to buy frozen use it for creamy soup base, mashed potato and rice substitute for s meals) Eggs (you use allot of eggs to make some of the breads and muffins) Low fat chicken broth lettuce or greens (I like to buy the Organic baby spring mix at Sams Club for making Earth Milk) Mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese (for pizza crust recipe, they have one that uses cauliflower and mozzarella but I like the one with mozz and cheddar best, its sooo good you might need more of this on hand for that I buy pre-shredded bags)
this is just a rough list so I hope it helps, everyone is different so you might find other recipes that use different thing than what I liked best. plus I could have things on hand you don't so I wouldn't think to tell you to get because they were already part of my list. Happy weight losing!!

Jaidra, that was very helpful, thank you. Obviously without the actual book yet, I'm just setting up the kitchen. But definitely knew I was missing items that will need to become part of my typical stock at home. Deeply appreciate it. Eventually I'm sure to create a shopping list of must haves but I didn't want to derail before I got going!! TY again!
steffanie3: daisymae27, it is probably the olive oil I like it i something strong as is like a curry chicken salad, but for everyday MCT for the olive or part of it appeals more, avocado or a light olive oil too

steffanie3: Green pea flour could be used in an E setting, if you have a specific recipe asking in above forum we could give it a look payeville

steffanie3: crazyabt6, did you use the homemade flour called for in making in the first step?

steffanie3: gram42can, nope Cheerios would be a no go on THM
Mar 10, 2015 14:29:07 GMT -5
steffanie3: perla, I don't have those, but if you post ingredients in a post above we could take a look or other mamas might spot it that do have it. The chatbox questions are easy to miss because they can scroll by without mamas seeing them

solagratia: I'm new and not sure how this this works...new to THM too and have a question. Appreciate any help I can get.

solagratia: I've been doing THM about 2 weeks and I'm starting to loose a bit of wieght but my breath has become strange. I can't smell it but my husband says it's a bit metallic and quite strongly ammonia-like in its smell.
Mar 16, 2015 2:20:04 GMT -5
solagratia: We're concerned since I am nursing our 11 month old. I've had this happen before when I've tried to loose weight while still nursing. But years ago (before my childbearing and nursing days) I lost weight when needed without this side affect.
Mar 16, 2015 2:22:19 GMT -5
solagratia: My mild supply seems fine, but we are concerned about how this could affect the baby or if something is wrong with me. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks

steffanie3: solagratia, it sounds like you are in ketosis are you mixing up your fuels well? If you would like you can post a few days menus in a thread above and the ladies are great about helping make suggestions

Dutchi: Is there a limit for how much almond milk you can use in a meal...any category? For example...can I use 1.5 cups of almond milk in a smoothie with whey and berries and still have it be a FP? I find the ice waters down the flavour too much for my liking.
Mar 17, 2015 12:36:37 GMT -5
Dutchi: I bought some whey powder at the bulk food store. Most recipes call for 1 scoop. Can you tell what 1 scoop would equal...1 tablespoon...2 tablespoons?
Mar 17, 2015 13:14:00 GMT -5
steffanie3: Dutchi a cup and a half can work specifically in that example, typically it is good to stick to a serving is a good idea
Mar 22, 2015 15:50:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: You might have to check with the store to be sure, a typical scoop is 1/4 to a 1/3 but they can vary a bit. For protein you do want a whey protein isolate, cross-microfiltered preferred.
