OR, try this variant of the Wendie Plan that we call the Maggie Plan:

Use all 49 WPA's in the first 3-4 days of your week, then stick to target for the last 3-4. It seems to work for many of the women on this board who try it. There are a few rules with it, though--you MUST follow the Good Health Guidelines, eat good healthy food. and have a glass of milk late afternoon/early evening.

I think this will be easier for me to do than the Wendie plan. So the first days of my week are Friday/Saturday/Sunday and Mon-Thurs. are the lighter eating days.

Sunday Phase 1.5
B: quinoa pancake, avocado, kefir
S: peanuts
L: turkey mb with sauce and parm cheese
S: had off plan snacks whilst walking around Costco
D: roasted chick peas, spanakopita

Matilda, I have a question for you. I notice that you drink a kefir most mornings. At first I didn't even know what it was but later found it in the grocery store. In reading the ingredients, I noticed that there was a log of sugar included. What do I not understand? How does that affect your cravings and isn't that much sugar not a good thing? Hope you don't mind my asking. I'm just trying to learn.

Z - A question for you too. What kind of oats and how much and is it as simple as just soaking them overnight in (how much) almond milk?

Today my plan for phase 1.5

B - mock pancakes w/sf jam or syrup, v-8, decaf coffee w/sf creamer.
S - 1 hb egg and 1/2 apple
L - leftover spaghetti squash deep dish pie
S - 1 tsp almond butter
D - leftover spaghetti squash deep dish pie and grn salad
S - ?

Now that I've made a plan, just need to stick to it!

T&T - yes, it is just as simple as soaking them overnight. I usually use 1/3 c. of regular rolled oats, 1 T. chia seeds and 1 C. almond milk, stir and refrigerate overnight. Sometimes I add some frozen fruit as well so it defrosts by morning.

Mmckellen
04-18-2011, 03:08 PM
TandT, the kefir I drink is plain kefir with no added sugars and it doesn't have fruit or anything like that so it is essentially like plain yogurt - there are dairy sugars, but they are naturally occurring. I love kefir! You should try it.

so snacky today! I'm exhausted from the weekend and I think my body was trying to use bad stuff to keep me awake. I ended up eating two mini muffins that were leftover from a kids easter picnic yesterday and a banana w/ almond butter. i think i'm sufficiently full, but makes me feel sort of bad :(

Thanks Zef, I'll be trying that soon as the second grain since working toward a phase two program.

Thanks too Matilda for explaining. I might try one just to see what it does to my blood sugar count. Being diabetic, I normally try to stay away from anything with more than 4g of sugar but since this isn't "added" sugar, it just might be alright. Will see.

T&T - DW is also diabetic and has a serving of plain yogurt or kefir everyday. Everyone is different but there is some research out there that cultured dairy may have a positive effect on blood glucose. If nothing else it has really helped some of the stomach issues she has because of the meds.

Z -- snacking is a definite problem for me when I'm tired as well. When I was doing a lot of 27 hour call shifts last year, the day after the shift was often an eating disaster. There's an interesting physiologic reason for this involving neurotransmitter production and blood glucose that I won't bore you with the details of. Good for you for acknowledging your physical hunger cues, though.

Wt: 164.4

B: PB & 1/2 banana on Ezekiel bread with skim milk
Sn: String cheese
L: Black forest ham & swiss on a pumpernickel roll (214 calorie thingy), baby carrots, ~1.5T tzatziki. Diet Pepsi.
Sn: Strawberries
S: Chickpea & veggie stew on quinoa
Ex: Didn't get up early to go to the gym, and I need to study late tonight, so I doubt it will happen.

After abstaining from diet sodas last week, I'm going to work on reintroducing it and consuming it in moderation now. I'm not going to buy it for home, and what I drink while I'm out I'll log so it doesn't become a free-for-all like it was.

:lol: I think "massaged kale" means that you kind of run the kale through your hands to get the crispness out of the leaves and stem.
(The term does sound kind of kinky, though, doesn't it? ;) )

04-20-2011, 08:49 AM
MMC et al - Massaged kale is a way of breaking down the cells in the leaf so that it is more easily eaten, but not cooked so that it retains all of its nutrients. I usually just put a tsp or so of sesame oil on top of a big bowl of chopped kale and go to town, "massaging" the leaves. crunch them up in my fingers. It takes 2-3 minutes.

For my peanut sauce, I don't really measure so bear with me. 1 T. peanut butter, dash of soy sauce, dash of rice vinegar, small squirt of sriracha, and a teensy bit of agave. mix together, adding hot water in small doses to make it easier to stir/pour.

It is kind of tough to toss with the salad like regular dressing, so I just kind of plop some on top and drag my kale through it.

Shelf, I use Garden of Life Raw Protein or Naturade 100% Whey Protein. The Garden of Life is probably a healthier choice and keeps me feeling full longer, but the Naturade tastes a lot better and is easier to mix in my blender (a vitamix is on my wish list). In addition to the protein powder I like to add a scoop of Amazing Grass Chocolate GreenSuperFood.

another good messaged kale idea: http://www.cookusinterruptus.com/index.php?video_id=124 Super fun site, Great whole food recipes. She wrote our most used cookbook.

We use cytomax whey in a vat from costco ( 78 servings!!!!! ) Mostly it's a dh pick as he uses it daily, but it's the tastiest, most economical of the many many we've tried. I also like vanilla hemp.

Yesterday I had - phase 1.5

B - Decaf coffee w/sf creamer, Protein smoothie (2 scoops soy protein,1 cup unsweetened almond milk,1 cup water, handful spinach)
S - 1 wedge light laughing cow and cup raw cauliflower
L - cup free cottage cheese, fugi apple
S - 1 cup ff plain Greek yogurt, sf jam , oz pecans
D - 1 cup veg chili, 2 small chicken/apple sausage, salad
S - 1 cup ff plain Greek yogurt, sf jam, oz pecans

The scale hasn't moved for quite a while now and although I'm a patient person, I'm getting a bit tired of seeing the same number every time I weigh. Any suggestions on my menu or other ideas to make something happen? I am walking for about 45 minutes most days. Remember now that I'm not a spring chicken as far as increased exercise suggestions :).

T&T, I would try replacing one of your snacks of yogurt and pecans with a portion of veggies (try to make it green if possible). Also, you could probably omit a scoop of the protein powder in your smoothie in the morning. That should cut out close to 350 calories per day.
