Food for thought: August edition

Posted August 28th, 2014 by

Are you trying to lose weight in time for the fall? Or are you hoping to gain a few pounds instead? Weight fluctuation is a part of everyone’s life, and PatientsLikeMe members have been sharing about their weight management in the forum, everything from the Primal Blueprint 21-day diet to alternative substitutes for pasta and carbs. Read what everyone is saying.

“Finished my first week on the diet, I lost 3 lbs and my psoriasis is not as bad, it has cleared up a little…I do miss carbs though.”

“I think I would very much like to increase my fiber intake in the form of soup made of tolerated vegetables. I think soup will be much more easily digested than some other ways of increasing fiber and maybe cause me less problems, I hope.”

“I’m Italian, so that’s a major problem with Type II! I can’t go very long without a dish of pasta. Does anyone have a REAL suggestion for a substitute? Or am I going to have to tempt the fates once a month or so and have a dish of pasta? I tried spaghetti squash. It was like eating shoelaces!”
