I know a while back the topic of coaches selling by the box versus individual packets was discussed. My coach sells by the packet. Last week we were talking about that and she told me why some places do not allow it. Apparently since IP prints their nutrition labels on the box rather than the packet. If someone eats it and has an allergic reaction, the nutrition/ingredients are not listed..that's a law suit. That is why they have to sell by the box. Obviously clinics don't like doing that so a lot keep selling packets. Most of our coaches have been over our allergies with us and know we are OK. If you notice, their popular items are now getting labels on packets. Hopefully they do them all this way so that I never have to buy by the box!

Beck Diet Solution Wednesday Sabotaging Thought: The scale was down so it's okay to loosen up today, I can get away with it.

Response: I may be able to get away with eating extra for a short period of time, but guaranteed it will catch up with me at some point and undo my progress. Once I accept the fact that I can't "get away with things" where dieting is concerned, it will be easier for me to just do what I need to do.

Jambalaya, King Cake, and Cheese awaited those who wanted it. I had no desire to. The King Cake smelled good but I knew it would just give me a tummy ache and puffy cheeks! It's now starting to hit me that i'm a 'skinny person'. I don't stand out in pictures any more, I can borrow a friends jacket to run somewhere! How odd to me.

I've missed reading everyone's daily motivation and seeing the support to newbies. Glad the Mardi Gras madness is over and everyone is discussing their healthy 'lenten penance'. A lot of people around here give up sweets, alcohol, etc. Thankful I don't have to worry about that. I'm thinking I'll add to something to my life. Make time everyday for my daily devotional. I've been slacking lately.

Hope yall have a great day!
Congrats to you for staying OP around all of your friends and Mardi Gras food staples...I don't know that I would be able to stay as strong! I also love the idea of adding something positive to your life rather than depriving yourself of something. I want to start a gratefulness journal and remind myself each day of all the blessings in my life!

This fits me to a T. Thanks for sharing. It's yet another way the scale can mess with our heads if we let it.


ems70508: That's an excellent point about selling by the packet vs the box.

sunflwr, that's a great idea! Then you can look back at all of the wonderful moments in your life. I may join you in that. Think about the small things that happen daily that you will never remember. It'll be such a happy experience to be able to look back through those.

I have been reading almost daily but haven't posted in a while. We had a busy weekend with helping a friend move, a real cajun boucherie and Mardi Gras!! After our boucherie (slaughtering of a fresh pig x2) we cooked a pork stew with fresh meat, OMG it was amazing but instead of having white rice which is a staple in south Louisiana I made cauliflower rice. Everyone was trying to eat it and said how good it smelled, LOL. I had to tell them to get out of my pot Anyway, back to the grind at work, hope everyone has a great day!!

Default Is Gluconeogenesis hard on the body?

The word is hard to type let alone pronounce!

It's a cellular process in which protein is transformed to glucose. Via google, I learned that the kidneys, liver, & small intestines are involved. And that gluconeogenesis happens virtually every day as part of the body's natural process to balance blood sugar.

My diet has been heavily weighted to protein P1-P4. I now eat a modified P2, upping my calories on hungry days with more protein. I do wonder if there is any downside for organ or overall health from relying heavily on gluconeogenesis. Do those organs become 'fatigued' or is there an unhealthy metabolite from it?

My observation on this is it takes a couple of days for my eating pattern to show up. This goes for eating too much, or conforming. So I never take a dip as a license to eat!

Quick question for everyone....we are going on Sunday for a cake tasting and consultation for our August wedding. I'm not sure what to do....should I politely decline to taste any cake and just let FI decide? Should I taste?? What would you do in my situation?

Decline. The cake is more about the decor than the flavour anyway! Who doesn't like cake?

If I did not care that much about the cake taste(to me they all taste good) I would let someone else decide. If you are particular about that, limit the flavors you will taste and take very very very small tastes.

I would pass. I am sure they are all amazing. Let the FI decide.

FYI - my coach told me today they are phasing out the lemon and strawberry puddings.
