Yes! I borrowed the 'lose your mummy tummy' book from the library - but I was rather discouraged by the rigors of the work!! I want to flatten out these abs pretty bad though... Sometimes it seems that if I work them everyday they get pretty tight, but then just a week or so of not working out and I'm back where I started from.

Me too! I've only been able to complete four weeks of the program and my diastasis went from 7 cm to 2 cm, then I stopped doing it and my diastasis is about 5 cm. It's discouraging. I'd rather not look pregnant unless I really am! Lol. I'm hoping to get back to the program soon...it's just hard to stay committed to it when you have kids...
Check out Kathy Bowman's website called Aligned and Well. She talks about how body alignment causes diastisis and not having babies. She is not a big fan of Loose your mummy tummy since it doesn't correct alignment. She has a really good and easy excersize app for female pelvis alignment called, Down There for Women. I have the app and it really works for my occasional incontinence when I would jump or sneeze. I do have the mummy tummy book and DVD but just don't do it since it's so tedious. I only have small diastisis(less than a finger, even with 10 kids) so I really don't know if it works for that.
As I balance a tired baby on my lap, typing with one hand... I asked for a binder after #8 as born, then started doing crunches-NOT a good idea! I read through the mummy tummy book and got some helpful ino, so after a while I started weariong my binder again, mostly around the house or at night, and I started just getting on all 4s and trying to strengthen my abs. After #9 I wore my binder again and doing the same thing, and I think my muscles are only a finger apart? I'll have to look at Kathy Bowmans site!
msjongg: Just wondering... Are rice noodles on plan?

queen: Probably a good idea to start a topic asking about it. Generally, I think they want you to use the whole grains rather than something made from brown rice flour, but maybe there's more to know about it.

queen: Got a notice that the THM website is having a big cyber-Monday sale and are offering a couple new items. They have also introduced flat rate shipping. Time to stock up on that Gentle Sweet.

marmee: One question: if I have early morning coffee with coconut oil ( or if I choose cream) are they considered a snack, should I wait 3 hours before eating? If I eat an S meal soon there after am I ok? Would that be a problem if I eat an E meal soon after?

queen: You can post here if you like. But you can start a post by entering a forum (any of the linked titles above this shouting box). Once you are in the forum, you should see a "Create Thread" link in the title bar. Click that to get a posting screen.

queen: If you eat an S meal within an hour of your oil/cream coffee, it is all considered the same meal. Otherwise, you need to wait the 3 hours.

auntchocolate: I have a question i am still confused about crossover meals how exactly do i incorporate them and how often ?

queen: If you are in weight loss mode, you avoid them. Maybe throw in one or two a month if you aren't losing well. It can help to shake things up and get losses started again.
