loved it, but i made a crust with almond flour, didn't realize it had carbs, i tripled it for the whole pie, 3 cups almond flour and 3 eggs whites did i cross over???, i didn't eat a ton but how does that change recipe???
Can't answer your question sorry, but wanted to just add my family loves this one also! And with a family of 9 (6 of which are boys) it's nice to make a meal and not have to triple it. Add a salad and they are good to go!
No, it didn't crossover. But the recipe is already a very heavy S, a super cal meal. The addition of the almond flour, ups the cals even more. Growing boys and men could handle the cal load more frequently. If it stalls you, eat a smaller amount or have it more rarely.
My family loved this recipe as well and we even had a little left over for my husbands lunch the next day. He has requested it again but I told him he is gonna have to wait a bit as it is too rich for me too eat frequently
We had this for the first time tonight, for dh and children I served it with baked potatoes, plus we all had cucumbers from the garden. Everyone loved it, I just hope they forget about the one piece left over lol
My whole fam loves this too! We have a family of 7, and SOMEtimes there is one leftover piece, but we make it with only 2lbs of beef. So so yummy. we add veggies and salad too, and no one even looks for carbs...yay for fat!
Made this tonight for my family of 3 and I cut in half only using 1 lb ground beef and I also used half & half instead of heavy cream ( waiting on my book to arrive) - I'm not sure if that will make a huge difference in the taste- but it was really good! We had a side salad and it was just right. Can't wait to try other recipes when my book arrives and get a grasp on the plan!
Does anybody else get an upset stomach after eating it? Every. single. time. I eat it I get acid indigestion and sick to my stomach. It doesn't affect my husband like that though, he eats half of the dish lol. I half the recipe because there is only three of us including out 18 month old.

steffanie3: meemee if you use a full tbsp of Polaner it can be, you could add some more E fuel to it if you like and are struggling to get in Es

steffanie3: natcr3w, that works just fine for E You do want your sourdough to be whole grain to be on plan and your oats to be not instant.

kimlopez: Would the Earth Milk be OK to drink during pregnancy. I love it and just wanted to make sure. I'm assuming yes since "the shrinker" is on the list but just thought I would ask.

stacylynn: What do you think about doing the fuel pull weeks continually? It seems to be working and I don't want to mess up again!

stacylynn: Oops! Fuel pull weeks should have been Fuel Pull Cycle in my aforementioned comment...I need more sleep!

meemee: Was a Chick-fil-A grilled chicken breast sandwich minus the multi-grain bun and no condiments ok and an E?

lindah60: Hello I am brand new to THM I will take any and all pointers for success, I am also type one diabetic... My book should be arriving any day.

steffanie3: Yes kimlopez, some mamas cut back a bit on the Oolong for caffeine and/or folic acid absorption, I personally drank mine a different time of day than my prenatal. I did make it with pregnancy tea as well and enjoyed it very much that way

steffanie3: stacylynn you want to take a break, you can do three weeks but then I think you want to break for a month. I would have to check on the time I think it is a few weeks to a month in between.

steffanie3: meemee you could us the grilled chicken breast in an E, but you would want an E fuel with it for an E. We don't have CFA, but I think I have seen mentioned they have a fruit cup or some kind of fruit option (maybe a salad with fruit) so you could do that
May 30, 2015 1:23:56 GMT -5
steffanie3: for your E fuel alone the breast would be FP

steffanie3: lindah60 Welcome I think you will find THM very compatable with your diabetes, one thing you might find is you need to do more of a "pulled back E", basically lighter on the E fuel (on plan carbs) to help your blood sugars stay stable. You might also

steffanie3: have a little bit of a journey to find out what time of day works best for your E meals, my friend likes them earlier in the day since she can do a bit of excersize since that helps her levels stay in a good range (she is type 2) though.
May 30, 2015 1:27:19 GMT -5
steffanie3: A walk after an E lunch or breakfast seems to work just great for her

Bec720: Hello, Why am I nervous?! I have tried so many diets in my life. You name it and I have tried it and all of them have worked....for awhile. I can't seem to keep with any program and of course the weight comes back on.

Bec720: when I turned 43 my thyroid tanked, my hormones have not ever been balanced properly. (PCOS at 21yrs) and I have now gained 40+ pounds. I am scared to try and fail again.I am exhausted all day and by 2pm I need a nap or will fall asleep standing- for real

steffanie3: Welcome Bec720 Many mamas with PCOS do well on THM, looking forward to your journey.

orygungurl: I had a nice surprise when I went to the doctor a week ago. I learned that, after being on THM, off and on for a couple of years, I had actually lost 17 lbs!
