Ok so my dh wants to take me out for Valentines Day on Saturday. I am so excited he even told me that we were going to go to a comedy club and that's right up his alley, I just hope it will tickle my funny bone. I am so happy he planned all this. The only thing he said I need to do is figure out what and where we should eat. As he fully supports my THM new shape happening.
Well I started the One Week Cycle and will be on a E meal day. What do I do? This will be my 2nd week through and I don't want to destroy it but when does my dh ever plan anything?? I couldn't say no.
So what type of restaurant do I go to? What do I eat? Help, suggestions please. Also, we will not be going to some fancy place. It just has to be dinner!
I don't know if this will help you or not but I'm in the same boat. My plan is to eat E all day but allow myself to eat an S dinner...I can't think of a healthy, on plan E meal to eat out & my Fuel Cycle is merely a way to boost my metabolism, it is not a measure of my success on this plan. If my husband wants to take me out then I will drop the FC for the night & completely enjoy my time w/ him & I can eat an S meal w/ no guilt. Enjoy your date, comedy clubs are so much fun!

I was going to say the same thing as cashen You could get a low-calorie salad, with chicken breast and low-fat dressing (fairly common menu option). Or a white fish with citrus (depending on where you go).
But I would probably switch it up and do the S, I don't think it would be destroying your week and you could finish your last day as E in the morning (guessing you have one left). You could always decide for sure once you get there as long as you have had 3 hours to switch.
Thanks ladies I appreciate the advice! I know I shouldn't worry but I am still trying to loose and last week loosing a 1.5 lbs I wanted to see something like that this week. I suppose I could just do a 3rd week if Monday I wake and don't feel like flopped. I need this boost as well. We had talked prior to starting so that I didn't have any of these days happen. But when dh get's an idea he runs. Which is good, or we'd never do anything as I am a home body! :-)
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?

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

htebe: is there a substitute for oolong tea? seems I have everything but

stacylynn: trimhealthygma4him - what is overwhelming to you? Maybe we can help you!

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.

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?
