I know! And... they don't believe us when we relate our stories.

Thanks, Janet. I jumped on that DietDoctor article the minute it landed in my mailbox, and forwarded it to my friend. Absolutely everything you always wanted to know about sugar! From a reliable source. If she hasn't already, I hope this will encourage her decision to join DD. Ten bucks a month (less for annual) is way less than any other nutrition guidance available.

MsArielle, I'm with you about encouraging your friend to follow doctor's orders. Seems to be working and losing weight is the best incentive. I'm of the opinion that ALL diets create weight loss. After that...sustainability. Hard to do.

Mackerel? Holy mackerel. Do I have to?? I always associate it with canned cat food, and I just can't bring myself to eat it--even the good stuff. I've almost recovered from my early Weight Watchers experience with naked canned tuna (three times a week!) The Tuna Burgers on DietDoctor are wonderful. Also, being able to make tuna salad with mayonnaise makes it delicious.

So...off to real life another day. Best wishes.

Lol, I cannot eat Mackerel. I have tried MANY times. No go. Tuna ? Yes. Canned sardines? Yes. Salmon? Sometimes. Not mackerel !!! Even baked in milk. It's still yucky. Cat food sums it up. Blech.

It's all about the nutrients! Canned wild salmon is good, but mackerel, with all the other high protein, nutrient dense foods ingredients in that recipe, start the day with a high Nutrient Optimisation score.

I am so glad you have jumped on the nutritional optimization wagon Janet.

Both canned did salmon and canned wild mackerel are on my regular menu. I eat them often for lunch in a large salad with homemade vinaigrette dressing and a bunch of additives like nutritional yeast, ground flax seed, and hemp seed, very nutritious and very good. I keep my daily Nutrient optimization score in the low 90's.

And just to add, the dog enjoys a little canned mackerel from time to time too.

Some people don't believe in sugar addiction. I know people who just think it is a matter of will-power or choice to stop eating sugary foods. I agree that it is a matter of choice, but I know that I have never had enough will-power to conquer the addiction that I know is real. Once that sugar hits my tongue, I always want more.

I'm exactly the same!!!

If I can string together 3 lc days, I have a chance of continuing LC. But once triggering carbs cross my lips, I'm toast.

Currently I've invested in a big supply of Swerve, and a load of f safe low carb recipes for sweets. Sure helps me say no to the dangerous sugar laden sweets and breads, while I whip up an alternative.

The brown sugar Swerve has been a life saver.

There's research that shows sugar affects the brain the same way as cocaine. I wonder if anyone doubts cocaine is addictive.

I think it is also the memory of when binging made you feel good. Eventually, as with any drug, it won't work anymore, but the memory remains.
