Product Reviews / Re: Sugar Free Relish - Kroger Brand
« on: August 20, 2012, 07:34:39 PM »
I use this stuff myself but I also only use the serving size. I probably don't use any more than 2 tbsp for my Chicago dogs ( gotta do those PROPER here in the upper Midwest!) so I just don't stress. I suppose it could be a huge issue if you really use a LOT of relish. Otherwise, I don't worry too much about things like that because I would absolutely drive myself INSANE and then eat everything in sight. Tried that before. It didn't turn out too well.  :o

OK. I'm going to be the weirdo here beause I am often anyways. I actually LIKE the seaweed snacks! I think that's also because I really LOVE sushi but can now only have sashimi. But the seaweed wraps that are wrapped around the matchstick cucumbers, sea veggies, salmon, cream whatever is just damn tasty!  :D I'm also 99% sure I have an iodine deficiency so that also might be why I crave the stuff.

The roasted kale is so good that when I made my own, I ate the whole stupid thing. Problem is that it's not "Zero" carbs so it put me over. Good thing it's too expensive for the health food store bagged kind (like 6 bucks a bag for the ranch ones).

I think we crave what we are deficient in and abhor what we don't need. Just my theory based on ZERO medical science, research, or evidence.

I don't know about you guys, but I think after I'm done with this jar, I won't buy any more PB. Even the substitute soy butter has the same effect. That effect is that I CAN'T STOP EATING THE STUFF!!!  :o :o :o :o I literally can't handle the stuff and I KNOW I can EASILY consume an extra 6-700 calories per day eating the stuff. I can't "just have" a TBSP because I always over measure. Plus, the spoons don't wash well in the dishwasher.

I will try Umpa's fudge but as far as eating the PB, I think it has to go. I have a suspicion it also fuels the artificial sweet cravings.  I hope I'm not alone in needing to stay away from the stuff. It's like crack to me. I'm not a druggie but I'm afraid if actual crack was peanut butter flavored, I might consider it.... :D

I would guess you are looking at water weight. Not to get in your business... but is it close to "that time"? I can go up quite a bit when my visitor is in town.  ::)
Hang in there!  :)

Ugh. Me too.

Why do spammers always sound like they're talking in broken English?  :D :D :D

This is an excellent reminder of the hidden power of exercise. While we can count calories eaten and burned like an accountant balacing the fat books, there are so many other benefits to exercise. I know that when I exercise on a regular basis, my stress levels go down, I sleep better, I get HEALTHIER, AND, I eat LESS. Might be connected to the stress but I'm not sure. I just know that I feel tons better when I work out, even if I'm just walking on the treadmill.

You've convinced me to renew that old gym membership!

I have even stopped baking the low-carb goodies until I'm at my goal (only 5 pounds to go and I'll celebrate with Umpa's luscious coconut cake!!).

This is a really good idea. I do eat low carb "muffins" with almond and flaxseed meal for breakfast, but even that's enough. I think the low carb treats (even though they are low carb) can really slow you down.

On the brightside, if you avoid low carb treats but start eating them when you're at goal, it will be like you're back to your old ways as a reward but not really. It will still be low carb...just with the sugar alcohols. Sounds like a good plan to me!

You guys are probably right. Once I finish off this 12 pack  :o :o :o I will quit the sauce.  It must be my age group. I seem to have a terrible time with diet pop. My diet pop is like other people's cigarettes....I can't have "just one" at home and might only drink one when I'm "socializing". Except remember, this is diet pop we're talking about! 

Damn those artificial sweeteners  >:(. Thanks for telling me what I didn't want to admit to myself. Artificial sugars (in ALL forms) are just nasty. I want to see numbers badly enough that I'm willing to quit.

Aye yai yai. I need a 12 step program for diet Dr. Pepper!

While I would never ride one myself (too scared  :o ) I just LOVE  ;D to see a woman on a bike. When I see her, I'm like "she's a badass" and "You go girl"!!!

Just curious if this might be true. While I am looking and feeling thinner, I'm also consuming 3 cans of Diet Dr. Pepper each day. I'm thinking it might be slowing me down a bit. 

Is there any science behind this or am I just imagining things? Or have you had any experience?

The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies. SO MUCH wisdom, metaphor, symbolism, and life truths throughout that magical munchkin land. Another example of art explaining life through art. I love art.  :-*

Thanks Toosweet. Would it be possible to use bagged (pre chopped) cauliflower?

Pretty soon you'll need to wash them more often because the stretch out.  Then, you need a smaller size!  It's a wonderful progression!

Oh, what a happy day it will be when I look FORWARD to throwing my jeans in the dryer because it makes them SHRINK!!! ;D ;D ;D

Good to know! ;D I appreciate the confirmation that it's not a small thing. Although, I have no idea what I was trying to say when I said "I'll see after I was them". I think I meant "after a while" or something but I'm not sure because it was late.  :D

Wheat is nasty stuff. It will take a while for your body to stop craving it. The best sub for phsychological cravings (I've found) is to use substitutes. I LOVE the 5 minute brownie, minute muffin, doughnut muffin, coconut oil candy, and a good burger. Give your body some subs and what it needs and it will heal itself.
