So I had, cheddar cheese (no I didn’t read all the ingrediants) with Olive Oil potato chips (did read the ingrediants, potatos, olive oil, salt), a homeade brownie (made with butter and coconut oil)…within half hour I was WARM!!! Never had a hot flash before, but perhaps this is what one feels like. DIdn’t have a thermometer handy to take a reading.
Very interesting…like how I am seeing some results. Now just need to keep the temp up, get the urge to workout…and drop 20 pounds?February 4, 2014 at 6:32 pm #14969
good news….don’t become overly concerned with losing weight…it sounds like you are doing great as is. However, if you do want to lose weight, you can do things like a low-fat jarlsberg cheese with an apple…but that is something to focus on down the road, now just focus on the 4 S’s and be concious of “shady” ingredients….heres a post i made if you have not read it already:February 4, 2014 at 7:27 pm #14973elfman5150Participant
Congratulations! It is such a wonderful feeling when you have a surge of warmth flow through your body after eating a hearty meal. It make so energized and I notice that my ‘brain fog’ tends to clear up as well. As far as the carrageenan goes, I wouldn’t worry about it. There is no clear evidence that it will cause cancer in humans. More info is needed.
Also, even if it kills rats, one certainly can’t conclude that it will kill humans, too. Heck, cats can die from chocolate, but I’m pretty sure chocolate isn’t deadly to us – at least I hope not or I’m in MASSIVE trouble!February 5, 2014 at 12:47 am #14976
avoid carageenan at all costs. here is the article on it:
carageenan gives lots of people instant digestive discomfort. our body is NOT capable of processing it.February 5, 2014 at 2:20 pm #14989HotChickWannabeParticipant
Sounds scary…my problem is that I am the mom and I am the cook in the family. If I had endless money for groceries and the time to devote to seeking out “perfect” foods. But I have a very busy life…so I try to incorporate as many healthy option as I time will allow. I try to buy organic dairy, use coconut oil…avoid process foods. We do eat out @ 1 night a week and although I try to avoid PUFAs, it is rather difficult.
So I walk the middle of the road, do my best, but resist becoming too obsessive about every ingrediant. But I will file this carageenan thing in my brain and I am sure I will try and avoid it.

Sounds like you’re operating about like me. I do the best I can without driving myself nuts. And despite already knowing that carageenan and gums are no good, I still have cream cheese in my fridge cause sometimes that just happens to be what I want. Since it isn’t particularly problematic for my family we eat it occasionally without worrying about it, occasionally being a couple times a month maybe.
Best of luck on the tightrope that is awareness without going neurotic, that line is in a different place for all of us. :)February 6, 2014 at 1:12 am #14995
to each his own, i just thought i would make people aware of it
