Sgrbear, also remember that you can eat non-starchy veggies to help fill you up. When I eat a meal and I'm still feeling hungry(I have a harder time feeling full at E meals) I eat more non-starchy veggies (cooked or raw ... broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, summer squash, green beans, salad, etc, etc, etc...)
Also, snacking is expected on the THM plan! Yeah! Just make sure you wait 2 1/2 to 3 hours before and after a meal to have a snack.

I am new to THM and I'll admit, a little nervous to get started. I like to think of myself as a fairly smart person but I'm having a hard time grasping the details of the plan. I have read the book, read close to everything on the subject on Pinterest and Facebook and it's just confusing. I'm a 45 yr old Mom of 3 and NayNay to 3 precious grandkids. I am at my heaviest of my life and just miserable in my skin. I am your typical, tried everything on the market, kind of girl and nothing has made a significant difference. I'm scared to begin because honestly, I'm afraid to fail, AGAIN! I'm probably a little depressed and I know it's because of my weight and also because of the constant failures regarding my weight loss. I see all the wonderful before and after stories and just wish one of those people lived right next door to me and could walk me through the process, lol!!

I am new to THM and excited about starting but not sure on where to start. I live in Canada and to order things off the website cost a lot and I'm not sure where to get things where I live. To be honest, I'm not even sure on what I'm looking for exactly, I haven't heard of most things before.
I'm lost and confused and hoping for help. I'm hoping THM will work for my family and I but I need help! Please and thank you
Welcome, lxashleyxl! I know there are sources to order from in Canada, but, the great thing is, you can start by using things readily available, maybe even many from your pantry! Ask away if you have questions.
Also new and also from Canada!!!Am very confused but read to start focusing on breakfasts first so will do that. Found almond flour at Costco, truvia at the grocery store and ordered Glucomannan online. If you have a facebook account THM has a page there with links to all sorts of helpful lists to get started!! I am excited after reading so many success stories that I have hope!
Would someone be able to clarify for me? I make raw cow's milk yoghurt. If it's made from skimmed milk where does this fit on the plan? (I've been doing THM for about 4 weeks and have lost a very little weight but don't expect big losses as I'm pregnant. But my 17yr daughter and husband have decided to join me which has made meals a little more complicated!)
I believe if you make it from skim milk, it can be used in an E setting. If you strain it, and make Greek yogurt from it, you can then use it as a FP in S or in E. If you make it from full fat milk, with the cream still on, and strain it into Greek yogurt, you would use it as an S. Hope this helps and is not too confusing!
just started today and a bit confused. How can something be both an E and an S like some of the smoothies. also, am i right in this- on S days i can have full fat greek yogurt yet on E days it is lo-fat or no- fat. Is there anyway i can use it on an alternate day. i only bought no fat greek yogurt. thanks
I just started the plan and started eating 2 E meals a week, by the end of 2 weeks I gained weight and felt bloated, I haven't eaten them since, but also haven't lost any weight. What am I doing wrong?
Yeah, I have a gluten sensitivity so I Have to stay away from al lot of things that make e meals, so I figured beans are safe, I ate romaine lettuce topped with 1/2 cup chilly beans and added a tsp of shredded cheese and a tsp of low fat sour cream. I did that twice a week for lunch, all my other meals where S or fuel pulls, but like I said, at the end of my first two weeks I gained 2 pounds and felt bloated
I am thinking that 1/2 cup of beans would not be enough carb source for your E meal. It is really preferable to get, at the minimum, 3 E meals in each week. There are a lot of great gluten free sources ...quinoa, sweet potato or fruit are a few of them.
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.

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.
