I'm not planning on keeping track of stuff but this is my 1st day and before I get something too ingrained that could cause me a problem, I was hoping someone with experience could take a look. Brfst- big mug coffee, with stevia, Dutch process cocoa, glug of 1/2 & 1/2 2 eggs fried in olive oil, homemade turkey sausage from lean turkey, slice cheddar cheese 16 oz good girl moonshine Lunch- 3 oz tuna 1 T light mayo 1 small garden fresh tomato kale chips made with spritzes of coconut oil snack- 1 T almond butter 1 light string cheese dinner- @6 oz lean turkey breast cutlet sautéed in evoo 1 1/2 small zucchini drizzled with evoo, roasted and sprinkled with cheese Mess of fresh green beans sautéed in evoo with fresh garlic and braggs liquid aminos
I also drank 1 1/2 qts. of the sip it shrinker (I think that's the name of the drink made with oolong tea posted on FBI) in addition to other glasses of just plain water. Does it look like this whole day was an S day? Any suggestions?
I found it on Facebook. It's actually just called "The Shrinker", and I guess they must've just said sip it. That's what stuck in my head "Sip it Shrinker" . I'll copy it here:
Photo: Since we released The Shrinker recipe here last week, this drink has gone huuuge! If you missed the initial post, scroll down our page to find it and read about all the health benefits in this drink. It’s an incredibly delicious, blood sugar regulating and fat shrinking tonic. I’ll include only the recipe here for you tonight. First, read a testimony we received from Brenda today about The Shrinker:
“This is now our go to drink for our type 1 diabetic son. He was struggling with high blood glucose numbers for 3 days and nothing was working to bring it down. I made this drink this morning for him after another high number and after 30 minutes it dropped to normal! Amazing!!”
The Shrinker: (Makes 2 quarts)
1. Boil enough water to fill a large coffee mug in which you will steep 4 Oolong tea bags until water is cool.
2. Once cool, pour this tea into a blender along with ½ cup of Unsweetened Almond milk, a couple of generous pinches of Celtic salt, a generous tsp. or two of vanilla, stevia extract to taste (go easy and add more if needed), ½ - 1 tsp. of cinnamon (cinnamon lovers can use more) and cayenne pepper to taste. If you have not developed a taste for hot pepper then use black pepper to replace the red for your chai blend. Turn on blender and blend well. This is your SHRINKER concentrate.
3. Pour the concentrate into a glass, 2 quart size canning jar and fill to the top with ice. If you don’t have a 2 quarter, I recommend you get one as it is fun having your day’s quota of deliciousnes in one huge jar. But you can split your concentrate between two quart size canning jars. You can add a bit of water to the concentrate if needed to make the liquid reach the top of the jar, but do make sure there is plenty of ice to keep the SHRINKER thoroughly chilled.
4. Put a lid on the jar, shake well then taste and adjust flavors. Own it!!!! What do you need to add so it knocks your socks off!! More stevia? More vanilla? I usually add more hot pepper because I like it to burn and make me feel like a feisty tiger!

Bryony: New to this posting thing, hope I am doing it right! Been on plan about 2 mo, lost 17 pounds. Still wearing same size clothes but more comfortably. Which is all good. Question though - has anyone else had problems with loose stools?

steffanie3: Hi Bryony As your body adjust to coconut oil, mct oil, or xylitol loose stools can happen. If you have added those or more of those recently you might need to cut back a little and work up Congrats on the 17 pounds, that is great

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?
Nov 18, 2014 22:06:22 GMT -5
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
Nov 19, 2014 19:52:11 GMT -5
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
