what type of sushi do you like? Do you like any sashimi?

I am a TOTAL sushi and sashimi lover! I switched to sashimi, edamame, steamed or stirfried veggies, and a salad with dressing. I tried doing rolls but it was a bit difficult for me. I was able to take nori seaweed and use it to make a vegetable hand roll, almost like a seaweed style spring roll. I also did that with a bit of cooked tuna and cooked salmon.

It was the closest I could come to kill my craving.

I completely understand! Fortunately, I enjoyed sashimi as much as the rolls. It made it easier. I even was able to eat out with friends. I just ordered edamame, steamed veggies, sashimi selections, and a small side salad. The only modifications I might make would be to ask for it dry and unsalted then, I would salt it with my little sea salt I had brought with me.

Soy is allowed so that wasn't a problem. I found wasabi paste is a zero carb item so, I have mixed it in with the low sodium gluten free soy and had no issues.

You are welcome!

Another thing to try, if you like it is the Tuna Tataki. It is seared tuna over daikon radish. We can actually eat the daikon radish so, it with some soy is a quite nice treat.

if you crave something that bad you have to learn to control yourself. you can have sushi. just don't pig out on it. have one serving and learn to live with it.

for example, i crave pizza! cheesy, warm, hot pizza. I've taught myself to just have one slice and I can be satisfied with just that now. I used to eat 4 or 5 slices...

Hi Lily!

You are right, for a permanent lifestyle change it is very important to learn self-control.


At this point, we are in a restricted eating phase of a medically designed program called IDEAL PROTEIN. It using changes in the foods we eat as well as portion control to assist in achieving weight loss. In this case, she can't have sushi during this stage because the rice used is sushi is not acceptable during this phase of the program. The program is designed to rest and reset the functions of the pancreas. Adding foods that stimulate insulin production actually interfere with the chemistry of this plan.

So, self-control won't work for now.

In case you are interested, this program is perfectly acceptable for teenagers. I noticed you did the HCG program. This is much safer and is FDA approved. It is something you might be interested in!

When I make the I P omelet I often roll it up in nori -- hot out of the skillet so the nori softens and is easily wrapped. Then I cut it into sushi-size pieces. You could also put hot asparagus, etc. on the egg and wrap it all up.

Well I have always made my own sushi, so I actually made sushi when I was on program with cauliflower rice, rice vinegar & splenda, used WF mayo, shrimp, egg, cucumber ect. The whole family ate them so I think it was ok, super easy and should conquer the craving.... just an idea

Obvisiouly I do have self control if not I would have cheated long ago & I was never one to "pig out" in sushi I usually just had a roll. Thanks anyways.

Thank you ladies for the other great ideas I'm going to try making sushi on my own with your greatful tips

That worked!! WOW. I thought about it but didn't try. I wasn't sure I could get the cauliflower to get that "stickiness" that rice has.

I have to try your rolls. Did you put this in the recipe thread yet? I would love to be able to go back and reference it there.

THANKS!
