Not to make it sound--again-- like I'm totally opposed to the Kool-aid/high flavor-low calorie idea, but I would like to give some information.†
THAT is enough to make me never drink the stuff again.
Thank you for your info on the Kool-Aid.† Well noted.† About this Kool-Aid thing:† We are talking about calorieless flavours
, not specifically Kool-Aid or anything else, as long as it is taken with and between meals.
† When I saw Dougís
original post and Sethís reply
in this thread, a light went on in my head as I realized that it was likely an explanation for my husbandís almost textbook response to the SLD, while mine was something less (leaving the gender issue aside for a moment).
Truly, even though we eat exactly the same food, he became just as Seth
described: real loss of interest in food (for someone who always planned the next morningís breakfast before he fell asleep), missing meals, etc. (Spooky part? They even resemble each other a bitÖ..)† Remember all the tea
drinking that Seth
mentioned (Iím assuming it was with and between meals).† Same thing with the Kool-Aid.† I was not
drinking my tea
with meals, only between
.† I can tell you that is changed!. I think that he is also an example of correct progression of weight loss for those with less to lose: very, very gradual and sure (fergetaboudit
!)† (My little Guinea Pig!
This Kool-Aid, by the way, was chosen by me for him because he didnít like plain water, and I wanted to avoid Aspertame or Splenda.† It is greatly diluted (12-14 c. water per pk. Instead of the 8 as directed, 1/3 c. (or so) fructose, some Stevia to taste.† So not really highly flavoured.† I am considering using it for both of us.† Make a gigantic batch (sigh!)
My view is that this is a feature of SLD that was not fully understood: because of the way SLD changes the body, calorieless flavours
can now provide appetite suppression too.† My husband and I will continue to utilize all the wonderful features.
I donít know for sure about adhering to any windows, but I can tell you that my husband never thought of such a thing with regard to drinking his Kool-Aid, but we are strict about the flavour-free period for the oil.Mpq
† Thereís no reason why you canít use sweeteners if you wantójust not sugar (calorieless flavour only)† Why not continue with the oil for now, but still keep its precious 2hr. flavour-free window well away from your lemon water, or tea, or whatever you chose to have with and between meals.† My husband and I take our oil before bed or in the wee hours.Clarinette:
† I agree with T.R
. that you should not worry too much about any windows.† Just have your lemon water with meals and have some in between as well.† You can drink water also.
