    Just saw your group message about your 20# weight gain. I did the same thing last year. But went back to protein shakes and one low carb meal a day. Went from 176# in November 2016 to holding 152#ish as of three weeks ago.
    Hope this helps. My gain came from starch, sugar. ..you know slider foods.
    If you want more info. I'lol check back on the 2014 sleeved group now and then.
    Take care.

    I'm glad the pain is going away. I have learned that if I eat too fast My chest hurts bad, if I eat too much my stomach makes me feel sick for awhile and I can't actually throw up just feel like it. I haven't really had a food I couldn't tolerate yet. Eggs are sometimesy.

It's not always about willpower. There are some potent chemicals in the processed foods we eat...

by Nature Girl on 03-05-2014 at 10:12 AM
I just went to my first visit with a therapist yesterday. I believe that I am a food addict and that food addiction is a chemical addiction just like alcohol or drugs. I'm 7 weeks out and am struggling with my cravings and my head telling me I'm still hungry when I'm not.

My therapist thinks that the chemicals in our foods, like white sugar and white flour access the addiction centers of our brains and cause cravings, bad behaviors, etc, just like someone who is an alcoholic while

Diet Soda is My Gateway Drug

by Nature Girl on 02-27-2014 at 11:58 PM
I have come to realize that diet soda (Pepsi for me) is a gateway drug. I will be doing fine not craving sweets, and I will have a couple ounces, very slowly of diet Pepsi in the middle of the day and then by the end of the night I'm craving all the sweet crap in the house. If I'd known this years ago things might have been very different.

My doctor allows the rare carbonated beverage, but I can see I'm going to have to break this addiction...
