I've only just started THM this week, and I'm already discouraged. I'm a nursing (exclusively) mom. My baby is SUPER sensitive to dairy. I tried to test it again this week, and he's reacted badly. :(. Bye bye dairy & "fat". I've noticed soooo many recipes (especially snacks and desserts) are based primarily on dairy foods. How much coconut oil can a person consume without gagging? I've also never been much of a "from scratch" kind of cook, and I'm feeling waaay overwhelmed. I thought I was going to do well with this, until I realized I was going to be very limited...and I've always had an aversion to salmon. Bleh. Ideas?
Unfortunately there is a lot of dairy...lets think of some DF options. Kale chips? Sprouted bread with a little fruit jam? Macaroons made with unsweetened coconut and dipped in skinny chocolate? Veggies and salsa? Nuts? Rotisserie chicken? Steak fajitas? Meatloaf made from either ground turkey, chicken, or beef? Gluccie puddings made with almond milk? Hummus made from beans and garlic and a little oil with plan-approved crackers or veggies? Almond milk and berry smoothies? Almond flour pancakes? Joseph's pitas topped with pizza sauce and meat and your fave veggies? No sugar added pickles? Sprouted bread dipped in egg whites for french toast? Do you like tuna or tilapia? Depending on your purism standards, some hotdogs are ok for S. Sloppy joes made E style and served over E bread? Just a few ideas....hopefully something will stand out!

Ho hum... I've really enjoyed the book, and I learned a lot. My limits because of nursing make staying on this plan very difficult. My little guy is also sensitive to tomato sauce. We also try to eat only organic animal products, so those recipes that call for egg whites are just too wasteful for us. (I haven't found organic egg whites in a carton.) I think I'm just going to try to incorporate things (watch my carb intake and avoid wheat) where I can. Maybe I can be a "die hard" when my little guy is no longer nursing. Thank you for your help.
I am doing the plan dairy & egg free. Although it is a challenge and I am suffering from diet fatigue from eating the same things there are some plans. The Joy of Gluten Free Baking is a really good S baking cook book that you can easily substitute almond milk in with good results. Their blueberry muffins and pancakes turn out well compared to the THM ones. You have to take cheese out of everything - and just do what you can. Yes, it is hard - sounds like we have similar limitations and I agree - doesn't make it easy -but it's working - slowly -but working. I eat a lot of salmon with non starchy veggies & a lot of chicken breast on salad for fuel pull or with veggies for whatever it ends up being S or Fuel Pull. I try to throw an E in - like Quinoa soup or something - I can send you some of my recipes for dairy free - just IM me.

mbernadette: I have started to slide backwards after losing 63 lbs. Now I must get back to business. I may require a vavle replacement surgery and also two new knees. I need to be as healthy as possible for these.

htebe: What does JUDD stand for; it was mentioned to a lady who was wondering why she wasn't losing?
Nov 11, 2015 12:23:49 GMT -5
steffanie3: JUDDD has a small mention towards the end of the first book, I think it is a mixing of FP and regular meals by days, but honestly don't recall for sure. It is mentioned for menopausal, stubborn loss mamas.

singtoangels: So I was just wondering, should I really read up on THM and wait until at least after Thanksgiving or should I try to dive into it now? Those who have stuck with it what do you do?

htebe: steffanie3 - THAT WOULD BE ME - stubborn, slow losing menopausal

ww: I posted but wanted to check with y'all before I throw it out... Anyone else make the secret silk pie yet? Mines so beautiful but tastes like soap. Is it the okra or gelatin?

hsmomof3: Not sure how this page works or where to post my question. I am allergic to oats (I can't have the oat fiber). What would be a suitable substitute? Thank you

Blessed Beyond Measure: I'm not sure hsmomof3, but you could try asking on the S and E plan general discussion board. More people will read there than down in this shoutbox.

jorae: Thank you for approving my access to the forum. I'm still "digesting" the book, and am really liking the Biblical approach to nutrition! I appreciate the time and research, learning lots, and am looking forward to healthier (and trimmer) living!

julie63131: Hello From St.Louis I am just getting started and still waiting on the books but I am excited to get started

queen: hi julie, you can get started now by finding some menus on Pinterest and practicing the fuel separation. Some people lose just by doing that and drinking more water.
