so every year people make new years resolutions and by month 2 or 3 they've already broken them. well here is one that you can do and keep cos it only takes 1 month to do, and what better time that the first month of the year to do it and thus get it out of the way? so here it is: the maker's diet. yes, i'm redoing it (again) and will be at a minimum of every january (it marks my anniversary, coincidentally, of when i redid it at the direction of the diet's author which got me feeling this good). so start off the new year with me and detox and prime your system to endure the punishment it just took from the holidays and also to get it ready for the next 11 months of cheats.

so this is advanced notice to you all. get your book, read it, get your food, and get ready. diets, especially difficult ones like this, are always easier to do with some on else for support and encouragement. by february you should be on phase 3, which is the maintenance phase. so if you can get by january, just one month out of the year, one month out of your entire life, you should pat yourself on the back for the accomplishment and hopefully also be feeling a little better as well.

Funny coincidence. I went over to visit some of my mother's friends(wonderful, wonderful people) and one of them just happened to have a copy of Rubin's book lying around so he gave it to me. I will definitely be reading it tonight.

Hey, I thought of a new years resolution for myself...to quit shopping...I figure for each month that I don't go shopping at the end of the month I would reward myself by...going shopping LOL!!!!

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

I have been making the same new years rez for a few years now and I never break it. My new years rez is to not make a new years rez.

Ya, Sniper that's usually the one I make but I've turned into quite the shopaholic so I thought maye I'd make a resolution for it, unfortunately I was sneaky about it with rewarding myself with shopping at the end of each month that I didn't buy anything LOL!

Awesome, CH! Keep us posted on your progress! You too, Easier2Run! LMills, let us know what you think after you read the book!

CrazyHarry, I just wanted to let you know my kids gave me "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon for Christmas (what is the world coming to that I am now collecting cook books?!). Wow! What an impressive book! (You have it, right? I believe you recommended it to me like maybe a year ago.) It is really a great book! There is sooooo much there to read and learn and it's very interesting! I know Jordan Rubin uses some of her recipes in his book, as well. It's nice to read something that compliments what we're doing--or at least trying to do--so well!

Best wishes to all!
Mom to 16 year old son diagnosed in June, 2007.

what is today, jan 4th? that means i'm 4 days into the makers diet. man, i always forget how much phase 1 and 2 suck cos i'm so used to eating phase 3 for 11 months or so out of the year. take away a few foods you're used to eating and things become a lot more difficult as your choices are dramatically narrowed. but it is good - detox and prime the system and work on discipline. and i thought i was hungry before i redid this diet. man, i'm constantly starving now and i'm doing it without a carb ceiling. you read how people eating a high protein diet feel full faster and longer. not me. i guess i'm more of a carb or mixed type. i can eat all i want and not feel full. i have to stop myself based on portion size cos if i over do it, i'll feel it 2-3 hours later. total delayed effect. very strange. i've also been exercising more the last few days as i've had the time off work, so i would surmise that this is aiding the hunger since the food i am able to eat on phase 1 doesnt satiate me as well as phase 3 does. i'll probably end up losing some weight, which i dont want to do, but oh well. i'll put it back on in a month or two after starting phase 3 as my weight has been fairly constant, like within a 4 lb range, for over a year and a half regardless of what i do or eat. my body has just naturally founds its "ideal weight" from how i eat now i guess. no, i'm not going to tell you what it is cos the last statement probably already has made people envious that i dont want to come off rubbing it in or bragging cos i'd actually like to put on a few more pounds.


emom -
yes, nourishing traditions is a fantastic book! the info at the beginning is super. lots to learn. her recipes are rough though in that they take a lot of prep time and work. but they are worth it. i didnt quite like her banana bread or muffin recipes though. i need to experiment with them more and tweak them to my liking, using allowed ingredients of course. i'll let you know if i figure this out. have you had time to make anything yet? got any favorites or dishes you're looking forward to making? how is ethan doing?

CH, I sent you an email, but my son is doing great, thanks for asking! Also, I have a great SCD banana muffin/bread (w/almond flour) recipe if you would like it! They turn out perfect every time!
