daygrl--starch blockers, as far as I know, only work for starch, because they "block" the digestive enzyme (amylase) that breaks down carbohydrate into glucose. They can't do anything about stuff that already is glucose.

metqa beat me to it!

FYI--I have used one by Terry Naturally called "Dieter's Choice for Carb Control".
I feel it is effective because I don't get tired when I take it with a carby meal.
A dose is 1 tiny tab instead of the 2 or 3 capsules most other brands are.
Swanson has a cheaper version called Ultimate Carb Control C-120X that is visually identical to the Terry Naturally.

Yeah, I agree, no post dinner sleepiness for me either. And I was surprised at the only tiny bit of gain, despite the loads of sugar cause I know they don't work for sugar. but maybe the slowburn workout I did before Thanksgiving dinner might have helped pre-burn some of the sugar!!!!

I weigh every morning unless I know it might be really bad news. That only happens every 3 or 4 weeks.

On JUDDD I am loving what I see on the scales.

I just threw out some Phase 2 tablets. Don't feel the need now, and they were a bit 'old'.

I weigh every day...sometimes several times a day, ha ha!!!
I, too, like data & numbers & math & stuff
Most of the time it doesn't get me down or affect how I'll eat for the day
(since I usually have it somewhat planned out already).

I also weigh last thing before bed, so that I kind of know what to expect the next day.
--but I don't "count" or graph that weight; it's just so I don't get a horrible surprise in the morning!

Ha, See? the benefits of weighing everyday. I can usually guess my weight now, but yesterday was not a good down day for me cause I kept feeling hungry. and I ate more than I wanted. This morning I felt sorta off and was sure my weight would be the same, but I actually Dropped 0.88lbs. What a surprise!

On the flip side, I also think I'm dehydrated so I'll be drinking lots of water today and that will probably take me back up. So the scale told me two things I needed to know; that I probably need more water, but my down day wasn't terribly off either. Yay!

I'm as addicted to getting on the scale first thing every morning as I am to some of my food addictions! I occasionally see a loss after an UD though, so wouldn't want to miss it.

Have found tracking on the Daily Weigher Thread very helpful for keeping track of my calories, UD/DD, weight and how it all affects one another.

Another daily weigher here. I have for a very long time. At first it was really hard on some days and it could ruin my whole day. Especially when i started weight lifting and the scale was steadily going up no matter what or how i was eating. I did find out that i was actually working out too much and it made me actually gain weight. I had heard this but really didnt believe it and, yes, it is true. I am a true believer. I was killing myself. Im glad i realized it though because now im just doing normal exercise and weight lifting and back to juddd and slowly seeing the scale going down. But i do agree that it helps me to know my body and know what effects me, good or bad. I dont let the scale ruin my day anymroe. It took me a little while but i finally got past that and now its just habit to get up, get nekked, and get on the scale.
