Re: thanks2001-09-03 HIya Linda,
Thanks for your posting.
i tried to get on the marilu site but the web address isn't correct or complete. I tried www.marilu.co as you had written it. I would love to visit her site, so could you post her address again please? Thanks
As for calories...I'm not counting...I'm just trying ignore that side of things...or I might get caught up in the dieting circle again.
I'm just eating whole and healthy..as far as possible. But I'm also comprimising a bit at the moment too because although I've thrown some food from the pantry out, there are some things, that aren't quite as processed as others and I can't afford to just throw them away.
I'm also lacking in recipes too as I'm waiting for the books I've ordered from Amazon to come. They should be here by the end of the week, then I can really get going.(Peter, I've bought your book...and yes it was under the name Donna Thomson..weird!)
The hardest thing I've found so far, is not having carbs with protein! I guess it's just a matter of getting used to something new, and undoing the habit of a lifetime.
I could happily live on carb meals only...so I have to be careful to plan protein ones in too.
I must admit that it has been hard today...not because of will power or anything, but because we went out for lunch, but were a bit later that anticipated, so had to eat at the cinema cafe, rather than the restaurant we'd planned. There was nothing on the menu that fitted in with food combining. In the end I had a baked potatoe and tuna, followed by a cookie.
I felt really annoyed that I had to comprimise my eating cos they aren't flexible enough to have a more varied menu!!! LOL ;-)
Well I must go now
