Kind~ I agree! It's so hard to respond to everyone, individually, so I just want to say to you all, I really enjoy reading your posts, they are so informative, encouraging, enlightening...all the things one could hope for in a thread. Congrats to the losers and attaboy for the great attitudes about staying the same. As long as the trend is downward, right? I'm really happy to have found this forum.

Been there done that. I'm amazed when I reach deep down and pull out more will than I thought I had. I always feel terrific the morning after a particularly difficult down day. You can do it! Have some broth or hot tea. Sip it slowly, inhale the fragrance.

WOE: Thinking of trying NK
I think it was SoHappy who suggested a while back to check out the Hcg boards for food ideas for DDs. Well, I did, and read a post about using konjac powder to make a sort of "pudding" that is almost calorie-free. I ordered the konjac and have had it a couple of times already--I can tell that this can be a lifesaver for me on a tough DD.

The konjac powder is what they make the shiritake noodles out of, except this does not have the odor or texture of the noodles. There are no calories and the powder is all fiber so no carbs--but those who don't eat a lot of fiber might need to work their way up to a full teaspoon of this. The powder simply thickens like crazy when mixed with water. The texture and stomach-filling nature is much more satisfying to me than SF jello.

I have this powder called Joint Juice that has 15 calories per tube--it's a glucosamine/condroitin thingie that is supposed to help with aches and pains. You're supposed to mix it in water or juice, and I never liked it much because it tasted sooooo overly fakey sweet. So what I did was put a tube of this joint juice powder and a tsp of the konjac powder in a cup, and added 1 cup of cold water while stirring very quickly to dissolve the konjac. Then set it aside for 20 mins or so, and by then it thickens into a very very filling...something. I am hard-pressed to describe the texture, but after about 20 mins to me it remind me of baby food fruit from a jar, kinda smooth and "gooey" on the tongue but not sticky, just an interesting (to me) texture. The Joint Juice powder gives it a sort of tart-fruity taste. The thickened cup full is so very filling and satisfying--I could eat six cups of SF jello and not get that result.

I tried it again today with a packet of the Crystal Light that you add to a water bottle--it was pretty good, too. Each tube has 2 servings so the whole tube is 30 calories. I tried to keep the serving at 15 calories by using two cups of water with the whole tube--it was a little weak in the taste department.

The original "recipe" I read on the Hcg site said to just add lemon juice and sweetener to make it lemony--that might be good, too, and I think I'll try that the next time I make some. Calories could be negligible depending on which type of sweetener is used.

Anyway, I am one of those who has never, ever lost my appetite. I LOVE to eat. I have a huge appetite and can out-eat my husband any day of the week, so I was really worried about handling my DDs on this plan. So far I've been handling my DDs okay but I know that will not always be the case, and I am glad to have this package of konjac powder in my arsenal now!

I just added 1T. extra virgin olive oil to my salad. Just so that I can add healthier fats.
As I said before I think it is so strong. but I ate it.
My hubby likes it and thinks that is the way to go for me.
I was getting{becauseof me{ a light olive oil.{Same calaries. I like better.
Is there a big diff.for health in the two?? which is better in the long run.

In terms of nutrition and health, there is no real difference in the type of olive oil you use--it's mainly a matter of taste which one you choose.

Donna, could you PM me the address for ordering the Konjac powder? That sounds like something I could use in my arsenal on DDs. Glad to hear you are finding possibilities for it. Anything that can be used to produce a pudding or sauce or gravy on DDs to bulk up the meals or soups, etc. will be a help. For example, I find broth to be tasty but not very filling. But thick cream soups seem to fill me up and make me feel 'full' much longer. Perhaps the konjac powder could thicken a broth and make it seem like a thicker soup and feel fuller, longer. Thanks for the address if you still have it.

Kind, you get almost as much health benefit from 'regular' olive oil as you do from the virgin, so if the taste is quite unpleasant to you, don't feel all is lost in going back to just the regular stuff. It may not be quite as heart healthy, but it is still awfully darned good for you. Or else, try mixing it up half and half... until you get better used to the flavor.

PM sent, SoHappy!

I'm looking forward to experimenting with the powder for different applications, too. The texture is really very nice. I've worked with xanthan and guar gums as thickeners in the past but they have some problems and, to me, can add an unpleasant taste to things. The konjac is tasteless.

Each bag has 100 tsp in it, so I can foresee a lot of experimenting!

That's really interesting Donna, would you PM the info to me as well?

The only concern I have is well, ummm, with "stopping up the works", if you get my drift. I tried some fiber supplement made with Konjac and it made my insides like cement (and I drank a lot of water.)

Thanks, Donna! I'll order.

RFL, I think that at some point the konjac powder is as thick as it's going to get. So it won't 'thicken' up any further inside your innards. LOL I think I'd just mix it and let it thicken outside my body so that I could control how much fluid got mixed with it, and then swallow it when it was at the consistency I wanted.


ETA: I just ordered my Konjac powder. Now I'll just have to find fun things to use if for. LOL

PM sent, RealFood!

SoHappy is right--it thickens to a certain (very nice) point and that's it. I have some in the fridge leftover and it's exactly the same as when I first tasted it.

It does make you very thirsty as it calls for water--another benefit, since I tend to overdo the coffee and diet soda and not do so well with water. The first time I made the pudding was my Monday DD, and I drank and drank and drank afterwards. After my morning visit to the potty, I didn't get rid of as much water as I thought I would which was a little disappointing since Tuesday was my weigh-in day, but I was still down those 2 pounds so I was happy. I ate it earlier in the day yesterday but was still thirsty for most of the rest of the day. But my bathroom trip in the a.m. seems more normal now.

I've worked a lot with psyllium husk powder and flax, and know that you can sort of get fibered-up at first so that it feels like you're getting constipated and retaining water, but if you keep using the fiber, it will regulate in a day or two. A friend (scientist!) once told me that she was sure she had at least three pounds of soggy fiber in her intestines at all times lol.

That is both and all at the same time.

Can hardly wait 'til my powder arrives and I can start experimenting.

The scale gods screwed me over this morning, but I'm not letting it defeat me, instead it's making me feel defiant! I *will* stay on track and I will win.

Anyway, an up day for me which includes a glass of wine and dinner with friends for me tonight, so I'm a pretty happy camper.

That's a great attitude, Valerie!

There are a lot of reasons why the scale number can be deceiving, and it's important not to react too emotionally to it when it's not a number we'd like to see. I write as someone with a problem of reacting too emotionally

Enjoy your dinner--and wine!

Afternoon y'all!

Been gone all day, had to eat on the road. Home for a little rest before service tonight, where we'll have a covered dish buffet. Good thing it's an UP day and I've got my protein shake as a back up.

Have a great evening y'all, I'll catch everyone tomorrow!

Down just a pound this week--and I can't complain because I've been letting some UDs get out of control. Throughout my loss, I've always counted on UDs, but recently I've just eaten 'to satisfaction' and stayed low carb. That clearly doesn't work for me, and I need to get back to counting.

I'd like to lose another 1.5 lbs to be in the middle of my goal range before I formally try to maintain on JUDDD. But whatever my weight is next Saturday, I plan to begin my 600 DD/1400 UD maintenance 'experiment.' This week I plan to get control of those UDs.

Morning everyone!

Today is a DD and I am thankful. I had an overindulgent UP day yesterday and I feel it. I am looking for a very productive DD today to get my appetite and limits back in their right place.

How is everyone doing today?
