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!
katiehatty: Has anyone tweaked the gluccie pudding recipe? I am having trouble eating this...

nakona62: Is it ok to have an S dessert right after an S meal, or when do you have your desserts?

stacylynn: linmom - I am sorry that this is so late, but for next time, try dipping your meat in mayo and "bread" it with nutritional yeast and spices. YUMMY! Chicken is especially taste-y prepared this way.

stacylynn: nakona - Sure! : I find if I eat my dessert directly after a meal, I don't want to graze. It works for me!

stacylynn: katiehatty - I have read various tweaks regarding the pudding. What is it that bothers you about the pudding?

corleygrammy: Is it ok to have 100% natural, no preservatives, no added sugar, no fat corn tortillas on plan?
May 5, 2015 13:20:24 GMT -5
stacylynn: corleygrammy: I stay away from corn tortillas, because I associate corn with the fattening of cattle. There are some other low carb tortilla choices that would better suit weight loss. I often use Joseph's Pitas in place of tortillas. Best wishes!

steffanie3: You can use corn tortillas on occasion if you want to, there are sprouted ones that would be an even better option if you go that route. You could see how you do, I personally use low-carb options as well

sms: I'm so confused and overwhelmed. Now my husband wants to join me and I haven't a clue. I am to the recipes in book but don't understand how to develop menues. Please help
May 9, 2015 18:36:06 GMT -5
steffanie3: sms, don't get overwhelmed Some new ladies prefer to stick to all S one day then E the next until they feel more comfortable, but you are free to jump in and switch back and forth as you menu plan as long as your meals/snacks are three-ish hours apart.

steffanie3: If you post up above we can have more room to give some suggestions if you put the things you currently like to eat and what menus look like pre-THM

meemee: Is 0% greek yogurt with Polaner sugar free with fiber jam an E snack?
May 14, 2015 11:39:46 GMT -5
natcr3w: Foran e meal can I have oatmeal with 1 slice of sourdough bread with t.of butter?
May 15, 2015 8:13:56 GMT -5
steffanie3: meemee if you use a full tbsp of Polaner it can be, you could add some more E fuel to it if you like and are struggling to get in Es
May 18, 2015 13:20:01 GMT -5
steffanie3: natcr3w, that works just fine for E You do want your sourdough to be whole grain to be on plan and your oats to be not instant.

kimlopez: Would the Earth Milk be OK to drink during pregnancy. I love it and just wanted to make sure. I'm assuming yes since "the shrinker" is on the list but just thought I would ask.

samanthaewing: I am interested to know what kind of meal two wasa crackers almond butter and cheddar cheese would be? Crossover?
