    Sugar Reintro... not what I expected

    Oh, me too. It's one of the reasons I'm doing this, sugar is my weakness. I will binge eating candy until I'm ill. But i know it's a volume thing and that a "normal" amount of sugar shouldn't really affect me badly. It's keeping to that normal amount that is the struggle!!

    Reintro Day 9 - craving vs missing some foods

    That's understandable, the loss of anything that usually gives pleasure (even if it also brings pain - our brains are good at missing that bit!) will being grief. That's a good way of describing it. And our culture is SO centred around food, that there's a knock on effect of missing the social or environmental situation that comes with the food. I'm glad you're getting good weather!!

    halloooooo from the future! LOL I'm picky with the cauli rice, it needs to be with something saucy, and it's not my favourite but I'll eat it. Today is my biggest challenge to date - my BFF is coming over for movie night and she's good with the peer pressure. If her GF isn't drinking, I'll have some solidarity, but we shall see! Brunch: Omelete with mushroom, asparagus , baby spinach and gravlax Dinner: Because it's movie night I'm doing a 'load your plate' platter: Crispy pork belly bites with apple sauce Lamb and rosemary meatballs with garlic and lemon tahini dipping sauce Wings, 1/2 with Frank's Red Hot and Ghee, 1/2 with lemon pepper seasoning Crispy Skinned duck breast bites with mandarin segments and mint Roasted duck fat potatoes Baby spinach and arugula salad with baby beetroot and toasted pine nuts

    Sugar Reintro... not what I expected

    I will admit I'm sceptical about the whole sugar hangover thing. Do I feel awful after eating a whole bag of gummies in one sitting? Of course! But feeling like I've had a big night out the day after a piece of cake? I don't see why I would. Sugar isn't a foreign concept to the body - everything we eat is processed to glucose by the liver. Eating it as already glucose makes it hit the bloodstream faster, but that's really it. My grandparents ate cake every day and they never seemed to suffer for it. Sugar isn't an allergen, and intolerance of it is incredibly rare (fructose aside). Sugar is being majorly demonised at the moment - it's like fat in the 90s. There is no question that it's often "empty" calories, unless you need a boost of energy ASAP (think marathon runners and the like), but it's not only natural (yup, even the refined stuff!) but our bodies actually produce it. Our bodies of course produce a lot of things that an excess of would be a very bad idea (acid, formaldehyde to name a couple) but as far as non-toxic substances floating around in there, sugar (glucose) is a big one. So I'm interested to see how my sugar reintro goes, but I'm one of the folk who is expecting sugar to be the least of my issues.

    It's either Dairy or something else.

    I have just (thanks to W30) come off an 18 month bout of 'vertigo'. It didn't feel like tipping, and I didn't zig-zag but the best way I could describe it is - that feeling when you're in the ocean, up to your shoulders but touching the ground, and you can feel the waves kind of pulling you around, like gravity has lessened. Sometimes I was lifted up, other times it pulled me down. If it was anything like that, the diagnosis I got was vestibular migraine. Mine are clearly food related, as they have done with the W30. I used to get migraines (typical ones, not this type) from dairy as a kid and teen but thought I'd outgrown it. I'm very much expecting dairy to trigger it again.

    Day 32! So glad it's Friday. Breakfast: 2 poached eggs, The Goods spicy kraut Lunch: Hot smoked salmon, slaw with chimmichurri Dinner: No idea! It's Friday so I have a little more time to make something. I do have prosciutto in the fridge, maybe some chicken thighs with sage wrapped in proscuitto in a tomato sauce, with sauteed veg.

    OH, and the bonus? My husband likes fish, thought he didn't like salmon. Turns out he only ever had it canned!! I told him that's like saying you don't like a triple cream brie because you had Easy Cheese. Guess what? He likes salmon!! So happy, because it's a fav of mine!

    Thank goodness I tried the orange and garlic sauce before putting it on the salmon, it was gross. Flavourless and bitter. So we had native lemon pepper salmon instead, with roasted broccoli, yellow squash and asparagus, and seasoned potato wedges.

    Day 30 and disappointed!

    I agree with you. Nutritional content matters, but when it comes to the physics of losing weight, putting to the side elements which affect metabolic rate and the like, if you take in more energy than you burn, you will not be losing weight.

    Tuna with vegetable broth - start over?

    Very true, it was more a comment on the sneakiness of listing "vegetable broth". In Australia, if an ingredient has ingredients, they have to be listed in brackets after that ingredient, so it would read something like "Vegetable broth (peas, carrots, onion, celery)" for example.

    Day 31!! You know, I'm not even sorry this isn't reintro? I'm not ready. I'm quite happy eating how I'm eating. The weekend will be a challenge, because plans were made before I knew I'd still be fully compliant and not reintro-ing alcohol. So as I've said, I'm open to Saturday being maybe a day 33 reintro to alcohol. Today: Breakfast: 2 poached eggs, The Goods spicy kraut Lunch: Hot smoked salmon, slaw with chimmichurri Dinner: Orange and garlic salmon, sauteed asparagus, lemon and herb potato bake, baby leaf salad.

    But it may well have pea or other legumes in it
