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!
mrshofer: Steffanie3 I was wondering earlier you commented on a post "lpayne: The nutritional content is 2 waffles- Fat 6 grams, carbs 35 grams, 1g fiber, sugar 3 g, protein 2 g. I ate one waffles and 3 eggwhites cooked in coconut oil. Would that work for E breakfas

mrshofer: And I was wondering about your answer... does it matter what ingredients are being used as long as it falls into the "E= less than 5g fat &more than 10g carbs (up to 45)" category?
Feb 5, 2015 23:29:57 GMT -5
steffanie3: Yes the ingredients trump the "numbers" is the saying. It is important to keep in mind the numbers (other than the 45 limit in an E for carbs) are all post book and not intended to be the focus on THM, just keeping foods in their proper fuel categories

steffanie3: as well as eating on plan options. A good exampt is a mini snickers might be able to be squeezed in somehow with numbers, but isn't a nourishing on plan meal option

daisymae27: Hi! I just finished the book, and it all makes so much sense! I just have one question. What amount of healthy fat ( per Smeal or per day) is recommended if you're wanting to lose weight?
Feb 8, 2015 10:51:12 GMT -5
steffanie3: daisymae27 Welcome There isn't a set number, in an S meal you are to eat until satisfied, not stuffed but satisfied. You can have up to a 1/3 of a batch of Skinny Chocolate a day is the only fat guideline I can think of off the top of my head.

steffanie3: You do want to be respectful of things like heavy cream with lots of calories and not as "pure" of fat as coconut oil Does that help?
Feb 9, 2015 22:10:45 GMT -5
daisymae27: Yes, that does help. I have been putting coconut oil with a little THM sweetener in my coffee and then blending it in the blender. It's really good! I guess After years of diets that require me to count fats, I'm afraid I might overdo it.

dynamo: So, I remember reading somewhere that 2 light rye wasa crackers can be used in a FP, but the nutritional info says that 2 crackers is 11 net carbs.. isn't the limit 10 net carbs for FP? Does anyone have an explanation for this? TIA! : )
Feb 11, 2015 17:49:18 GMT -5
steffanie3: Yes two light rye Wasa for FP, one in S, or four in E. Rye is very gentle on blood sugar and they are super low cal

stacylynn: trimhealthygma4him - what is overwhelming to you? Maybe we can help you!
Feb 16, 2015 10:27:04 GMT -5
stacylynn: htebe - I have subbed green tea for oolong before. They aren't a perfect switch, but I believe they are close enough to sub for one another. What do the rest of you think?
Feb 16, 2015 10:30:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: I agree Green tea can be subbed in Earth Milk so I took that as they were similar. I personally like all kinds of teas and drink both at different times. Many types have their own benefits, I would use what you have for now

kari1052: does anyone have a package of not naughty rice or pasta they wouldn't mind selling. I want to try it before investing in a case of it in case I hate it.
Feb 22, 2015 11:41:28 GMT -5
steffanie3: kari1052 it wouldn't be the same brand, but Swanson's Vitamins sells individual bags of konjac noodles, Miracle noodle brand. Although I prefer THM's (and THM's are cheaper even with shipping) you could get the basic konjac noodle idea that way

perla: Do any of you still eat any of the RAW recipes from Serene's previous cookbook? I would like to be able to implement the "Sun-dried tomatoe spinach pasta" and the "Classic Green Bean Salad" recipes. Are those still within the THM boundries?
