    hey sexy.. i apprecaite your feedback.. the lentil soup was made by a friend.. i did have a small binge last nite on pea protein and raspberries.. those damn sleep meds give me the munchies! i had just added the oatmeal carbs in to see if it might give me more energy.. verdict is still out!

    yes health issues.. i need to go slow and pace myself..cant really do cardio..but can do some weights and walking-- so that seems like a good re beginning! i seem to have Chronic fatigue lyme disease and Common variable immune deficiency.. i guess all said..i am doing pretty good..

    good to hear from you! thank you

    hi there. I think u will get more feedback from the experts when u post food intake a little differently.similar to what you have done however,
    for each food item listed add calories/grams of protein/grams of fat/grams of carbs Cal/#p/#f/#c (I have seen some switch the c and f, just clearly state what u using)
    sub total by meal
    grand total by day!

    there are several apps and online website...livestrong.com and others that will provide info inthis format and u can save for yourself as u get healthier and start dialing in the food intake! and then you can post into your thread too

    thats a great idea.. when i put my food in calorie count it breaks down the protein fat and carbs.. i just haven't found an convientant way to transfer it from the calorie count over here.. i am trying to keep it to as quick and easy as possible.. but i can work on adding ... wish i could just cut and paste! i tried that and the format was all wierd... a good goal, i like that- thank you!

    thank you Slim good to have your support.. I am trying to be back.. without dairy, or eggs, or coffee .. Twist told me last year to try to cut out dairy and i thought it too hard...then did a latent food allergy test and whey, and eggs were on the top of my allergy list.. whey had been a big part of my meal plan for a long time-- i found pea protein instead.. not bad- but miss the cottage cheese !

    Ok so i need help with food.. I am good using protein suppliments today
    breakfast
    brown rice cake with almond butter & a shakeology drink with added pea protein pwdr

    work out .. lite back 20mins lite walking 20mins
    post work out .. more pea protein

    i was doing salads for a while for dinner and the price at whole foods is too expensvie.. yet the salad bar is FAB.. will i benefit just from some mixed greens? instead of all the yummy things i add like shredded carrots, celery cucumber, peas? i dont have the stamina or discipline right now to chop chop chop.. so i need to find a way to get the nutrition and keep it simple..

    maybe i can go back to veggie juicing that helped but was expensive.. open for simple suggestions.. thanks alot

    spinach, 2 carrot, kale, ginger and parsley fresh juice and celery.

    I am contemplating juciing with non organic.. to save costs ...much cheaper but kinda scary.. I watched a documentary called "fat sick and nearly dead" about a guy with an "autoimmune disorder" he juiced for 60days and got better.. I don’t know how strickly juicing would go with body building though? Not sure I have the stamina to strickly juice for 60days either.. and he was under the care of a famous nutritionist that I think told him what to juice and helped he along the way to get off his meds.

    seems that u are doing the very best with the availability of where u are with the doctors so far!!!
    your situation is so unique and I don't understand why insurance covers some things and not others. No one can tell you what to do here. for me, I had to throw out what I thought was good info on diet and learn over again including LISTEN TO my body! it is tells me things all the time, if I listen.

    How do you feel with the changes u have made so far?

    Thanks GGR..
    I am not sure how much protein i really need? also since i had to go dairy free ( i miss the cottage cheese) and egg free - i have been using pea protein in it's place. would love some ideas on other proteins. i eat alot of chicken.. and sometimes beef and pork -- i am not sure how much "meat" i can actually eat in a day--- i love meat, i just dont love it for everymeal. maybe i need to look into what the "vegan" body builders are using? thanks so much for your support...

    I know you have a lot of allergies. I eat a lot of chicken and fish. But I stay away from Samon cuz it is high in fats. So tuna, tilapia, cod, orange roughy...with spices. And there are endless ways to prepare chicken with different spices. I eat very little fruit when I am trying to loose. Like 1/2 cup of blueberries/strawberries/raspberries. I used to eat alot of peanut butter. I do not have it in my home anymore. I would never eat it before I go to bed. I try to limit my fat intake after lunch since I am on maintenance.

    r u trying to lose weight? or just trying to feel better by making better food choices??

    LOL! I know what you mean about peanut butter.. i finally ran out the other day- i have been a bit better about controlling it. I am trying to both lose some weight and feel better!. I used to eat alot of cans of tuna 9 years ago.. but then my mercury levels got high.. so some nutritionsit said.. maybe every 10 days its okay to eat tuna.
    I am not such a good cook.. Orange Roughy.. ? where do you live? i used to have that when i lived back home in indiana.. i can't find it here in CA .. more fine tuning to do.. found out my little low dose of either iron or Tgel has caused my red blood cell count to go up.. too bad becasue it helps muscles to recovery and i feel better more motivated over all.. isn't there a majic pill? after i got this news i had 2nds at dinner! emotional eating-- a girl needs something! I need to work on lower my "peanut butter" before bed.. but 1 tsp is better than 1/2 the jar i was eating before! damn ambian!

    so much to work on!

    I dont want to let this blood test get me down.. i hope i dont have to give up the iron and the Tgel (that i get compounded) it is the only things that seem to help my muscles recovery.. i can walk 1 mile without constant quad pain.. that is huge for me and i have been enjoying exercising again.. ( i used to leg press over 400lbs) that was before i got disabled from this cfs crap..

    i hope they dont take away my "candy" but i need to be careful because the heart and brain, i need to keep healthy too!!.. such a balancing act.. and i can't even get the dr's at stanford to communicate with each other they said "there is no funding for cfids" so they have the "things they do" and rather than look at the patient as a whole they just want to treat parts.. acting like those parts dont interact with other parts-- i am trying to "treat myself" as safely as i can.
    take care of your health ... if we dont no one else will... it is all about gathering information and making the best choices we can ..

    watermelon.. someone at one of the gyms told me watermelon was doing wonders for him as far has health and vascular system.. said he eats it with dinner.... i dont know if us females can eat it with dinner without it catching up.. but it sounds good right now!

    all movement is good; if walking is what u can do now, then stick with that!

    I love peanut butter too, but found a substitute. see if this can be an alternative with your dietary requirments. there is a recipe that gbrice has posted in the diet forum that uses this ingredient.

    http://www26.netrition.com/bell_plantation_pb2.html

    When I am serious, I squeeze every calorie out of my meals; I;ll eating stuff that I don't always like. It isn't about emotional eating. it is fuel for my life, for my workouts, for my health. Everything in moderation!!!
