Hey Chrissy,

I have always had a sweet tooth too! I cant do much with the "sweet suggestions" unless you can do apples, dried cranberries, and raisins - if so, I have a fantastic recipe for something thats healthy but sweet. In terms of losing weight - I've had a lot of success on the Primal diet. Its a no carb, high protein//veggie/healthy fats diet and its really worked for me. There's a website you can go on to get some recipes - marksdailyapple.com. Once you get over the hump of not having carbs you dont crave the sweet stuff as much anymore - and for someone like me to say that, thats a lot!!!! You drop weight and build muscle fairly quickly, plus you're eating good foods. I started a thread on it in this section a while ago - you may want to refer to it because there were some great suggestions in there for others doing the Primal/Paleo diet. Hope this helps!!

I haven't ever focused on the scale, but on eating what is healthy. This rules out sweets. I have had 4 cookies in 5 years, and those were in the first year. I don't crave sweets any more. I would rather dream about them! Make sure you take in good fats with each meal like olive, coconut, and butter (ghee). These will make you feel full and keep you satisfied. I have a tablespoon with each meal. I also take in 3-5 oz of protein for every meal. All of these are recommendations from my chiropractor and they work very well for me. For snacks I have muffins, (made from almond flour) fruit and nuts, or smoothies. I take hard boiled eggs or nuts with when I go out, so I am not tempted to eat something else. These have saved me many a time when I can't find anything appropriate to eat.

I could live off Sugar!!  Try to eat only 1 sweet treat a day.  If you eat a lot of sugar daily you may go through sugar withdraws for awhile, but eventually you may notice that you are thinking about it less often and even go days without it.  I love Peanut Butter mixed with Honey, Bananas and Peanut Butter, LARA Bars (flavors blueberry muffin and Chocolate chip cookie dough), KIND Bars (flavor peanut butter dark chocolate+protein), & apple wedges dipped in peanut butter.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
