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!

daisymae27: i made the mayonnaise in the book, and I really don't like the taste. It leaves such a bitter aftertaste. Any suggestions on how to tweak it to taste better? If not, is there any acceptable ready- made brand?

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.
Mar 16, 2015 2:19:18 GMT -5
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.

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.
