I'm reading through the THM ezine #10 and I'm reading about the SLM that is on the THM membership. Can we get that menu posted here on the forum? I don't have internet besides my phone and I don't want to use the membership site because I just don't have time to go through all of that.
My daughter and I have been on THM for just over 3 years. She has not lost a significant amount of weight and she is in the obese category. I would love to get this menu to help us out.
I would be so grateful if we can get even just that bit off the membership site. I know others pay, but they make use of everything on the site and all I need is that menu to help us gain a better focus.
I think you can put together your own slow losers menu by using the Fuel Cycle menus in the Turtle chapter of the book as a kind of guide for portion sizes and meal suggestions, and just mix up the fuel types each day. Keep your S's to either light S or deepS and do lighter E's when you do them. Snacks mostly FPs and the occasional light E or deepS. Try to do at least one regular meal a day as an FP.
I find that its not hard to do a day with 2 FP meals if I start out with an S breakfast. So I recently started doing that once in a while. Its a nice reminder that you can do FP meals and not feel deprived.
I don't think there is any magic to the stubborn losers menu. Its just a way to get your mind more used to smaller calorie loads. Its so easy to pile on an extra fruit or starch at an E meal, or go too heavy on the goodies one can add to an S.
Thank you, queen, for those suggestions. You are right, I need to take care with my menu, fuels, and portions. I was hoping to save a bit on the planning part by just getting a menu right in front of me and just follow that. With me nursing a 3 month old and my daughter being 15 we both have different needs as far as fueling. I'd love to be able to save some time by having a menu for her and tweaking it for me.
Did you ever put together a menu? It would be fun to put all of our brains together to come up with something. I find that menu planning is key for me, but I tire of the same thing over and over again.
My menu yesterday was a bit too light. I NEED MORE FOOD! I ended up eating a grilled chicken breast and two T. of pea salad between dinner and snack. Can anyone say elevensies? LOL. Only it was more like fivesies...after karate and before Bible Study.
B: Mushrooms, sausage in coconut oil, Trimmy (Deep S) L: Trim Train with beans and one slice of toasted sprouted bread & a lemon lime "pop" (E) Sn: Gwen's Orange Muffins & a vanilla roobios trimmy (FP) D: Grilled Tilapia with green salad dressed in slim belly jelly vinaigrette (FP) Sipper: Caramel Apple GGMS, HOT Sweet n Spicy Good Earth Tea
A few days away...family iussues. However, I did stick to THM! I did eat too many nuts and not enough "lighter" soups and veggies. Back on the THM band-wagon today, with this menu:
B: 2 fried eggs in coconut oil with nutritional yeast, hot sauce, mushrooms, red pepper, & onion. Trimmy! (deep S) L: Trim Train Soup with shredded cabbage & baby frappe (FP) edit: added radish and cilantro to the topping mix... Sn: PB Junkie & Apple slices w/ salted caramel creamy oolong (E/FP) D: Rich & Tender Venison Stew (S) Sipper: Apple Pie
***MUST drink more water! I am feeling dehydrated - even with multiple 20 oz. herbal teas.

I read your first menu, StacyLynn and thought "I would be starving on that." I guess it worked that way for you too.
I'll add a menu. Here's yesterday's:
B (E) - 2 pieces Ezekiel toast with peanut junkie butter and half a banana L (S)- Zoodles & kelp noodle mixed with chicken breast, red peppers, a bit of onion and a peanut butter/asian sauce D (deepS) baked chicken drumsticks with ranch seasoning, stewed okra, broccoli over a big greens salad, skinny chocolate S (FP) Hot chocolate trimmy
I vary back and forth between the Shrinker (hot) and the GGMS unsweetened at room temp (chugged) but I didn't make either yesterday.
I was intending a light S for lunch, but I got a little heavy handed on the peanut butter. But I'm not sorry. It was yummy.
Oh, yummmmm! I love your variety! What is kelp noodle mix? Stewed okra? That sounds super good! I tried your umami (sp.) recipe, on another link, and thought it was wonderful! Is that similar to yesterday's lunch?
Thanks for posting your menu. I often get stuck in a rut and appreciate being able to view what other people are eating.
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.

mamaj123: what supplements are recommended on plan? I believe they talk about it in the original book, but I don't have mine right now

queen: Depends on what you are looking to do. Can you start a topic about it?

marmee: Sorry to be such an... Older woman but I'm not abl to figure out how to use the forum. I have been able to read a few posts.

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.
