  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. My suggestion would be this: you should eat smaller meals every three hours to keep your metabolism going. It might not be the best idea to stop eating at 4pm, if you are hungry again around 7, have a little snack, some cottage cheese, a yogurt, handful of nuts, just something small. I'm a health ed major and have done a lot of research on weight gain, and weight loss. If you exercise 30-60 min a day that's awesome. Weight training 3 times a week for 20-40 minutes will benefit you greatly. A pound of muscle burns 50 calories/day, a pound of fat burns 2 calories/day. So, by weight training, you will transform the fat into muscle, and the scale may tell you you're gaining weight...well, you are, muscle weighs more than fat, but do your clothes fit better, do you feel better? Don't go by the scale... Working closely with a trainer and a nutritionist may help you also. I hope I have helped you a little bit.
  3. I have had the mission corn tortillas, and also just found Goya corn ones. They are both gluten-free because they only have corn listed as an ingredient, the mission ones do say gluten-free right on them. Pretty exciting!
  4. Hey Virginia, I live in Poughkeepsie too! Have you been to the health food store on Rt. 9 in the Bugaboo Creek Plaza? I actually went there this morning, they have some good stuff in there! Well, I just noticed you were from Pok and wanted to say hello!
  5. I'm a big fan of Kashi Cranberry Sunrise(or is it Sunshine), wow, I can't think! It's one of those, but it's pretty good. Wegmans has a cereal in their health food section, its corn flakes with strawberries and it tastes a lot like special K with berries, which I miss very much! If there was one thing I wish I could eat again it would be cereal. Normal cereal! Good luck
  6. And one more site, I forgot I had this link... http://www.heavenlylowcarb.com/index.shtml I'm done posting now, really!
  7. http://www.lowcarbcutters.com/page/LCC/CTGY/SS Sorry, here's the gluten-free section
  8. http://www.lowcarbcutters.com/page/LCC/PROD/SS/smaps I found this, I eat the smaps cereal, it's pretty good, really expensive, but oh well. I think there may be some other gluten-free stuff on the site...
  9. Doug, I'd suggest checking the Teryaki sauce ingredients used on the chicken. Other than that, It doesn't sound like anything else would have hurt you, unless the chicken was breaded. But, after a week, you can't expect to feel 100%. I did the same thing, and still do. I analyze every stomach ache, or "bubbly" feeling in my stomach. It sucks, but that's what we do I guess....so, those are my only suggestions. I'm sure other people on the board will be more helpful, they know a lot!! This is a great place to ask questions. Good luck
  10. "have mastered the art of passing gas in public" I seriously just almost died laughing, which would not be a good thing because I live alone! my neighbor across the hall is probably wondering what I'm laughing at, but wow, that is just SO TRUE! My cat is looking at me like I have 3 heads, I want to call my mom and tell her that one because we'll be at the mall and I'll say "ut oh, keep walking, walk faster, hurry!" We'll have to detour down aisles in stores so people won't think it was me!!!
  11. Barbara Apology accepted, no worries....thank you for all of the great information, I appreciate it.
  12. Thanks everyone, I appreciate the support
  13. I'm fully aware of how to manage my diet, no lessons needed here.... and that is why I ask questions so that I can learn these things ....it's only been two weeks
  14. Does anyone know if Duncan Hines brownie mixes are gluten-free? I dont have the box with me......... Thanks
  15. Granny, As far as I know, the only gluten-free Barbaras Puffins cereal is the Honey Rice...the peanut butter and cinnamon aren't gluten-free, they might only be wheat free.
