Changed from eloo to canola on May 30
« on: June 01, 2006, 06:53:42 AM »

and I am feeling amazing!!  I took Denise's advice and started doing 2 tbsp. once a day instead of 1 tbsp twice a day.  I take it midmorning.  The canola has "less taste" for me.

My appetite was suppressed on eloo, but not every day.

Now it seems to be suppressed much more.  The scale is down 2 lbs since May 30 for a total lost of 6 lbs since May 4.  I am female, age 50, currently weigh 128.  I would like to lose 6-8 lbs.

The most exciting thing (for me) is I was having MAJOR TROUBLE with compulsive, emotional eating prior to starting sld.

It is greatly reduced and I am feeling "close" to being "at peace with food."  I had just about given up on feeling "normal" about food ever again.

WOW   :D

Jane Ann,
I know how you feel isn't it a great feeling to be in control of food and not the other way around.  :D

Yes, is it very cool.   :D  I still have times when I want to eat for reasons other than hunger, but they are greatly decreased.  I would say it's a freakin' miracle!   :lol:

It can't just be about hunger and set point if it effects our emotional eating. My experience is that it is almost completely eliminating my usual cravings!

Ya, that's a funny thing, isn't it? I've been doing this and listening to others doing this since last September, and we all say again and again that it frees us from all sorts of intake cravings and addictions: smoking, alcohol, coffee, chocolate, whatever. People struggling with eating disorders have posted and said they feel much more freed and sane.

I'm wondering if it helps with any other addictions or "demons"? I do feel generally a bit more in control and sane and calm since I started this, but perhaps that all stems from the appetite stuff. I don't have any other addictions to measure. If this could help with drug addiction and the others--wah, that's when the Nobel's gotta come to Seth. If anyone has contacts who are struggling with drug addictions, perhaps they could try this and let us know (anonymously of course) how it helps?

Cheers,
Ann H

I did the opposite of Jane Ann, that is, I went from canola which worked, but only after 3 weeks of consistent effort. Then I ran out of canola and just started a bottle of ELOO and I am having major trouble. I am hardly feeling any appetite suppression, and in fact binged again tonight for the 2nd time this week. I seem to be one of those people for whom the oil takes longer to have an effect, and I am not psyched about waiting for 3 weeks again before ELOO starts working. Does anyone else have this problem? Stephen (ethesis) suggested to find something that works and stick with it instead of too much mucking around with experimenting. Does that mean I should put away my ELOO and go back to canola? Has anyone else switched around with success?

It is.  I found that I just had to deal with my emotional issues as food no longer worked on them.

Heck yes, it means get some Canola ASAP ...

Or, as Seth suggests, blend the two.  You may not be digesting the ELOO and thus not getting the effects.

I switch around a bit, but if I hit something that doesn't work, I'm chicken.  I figure after I lose another twenty pounds, then I can experiment.  So far I've only lost about 60 or so and thus I'm still playing it safe.

Stephen, you are not the only chicken around here, and YOU with 60 lbs gone could never be called chicken. But your advice is good, I will stick with the thing that works for many months until I really feel solid, and then mess it, er I mean mix it up. Thanks. You know, its only been a month 1/2 for me, so I need to chill out a bit and get into a groove.

Well, I'll try to move to less yogurt tomorrow ...

Stephen, consider making homemade yogurt, like I do. Since you're not in the tropics, you might have to adjust the method (make it during the day when it's hot, or use a machine), but the flavor is definitely not ditto, even made from the same milk or milk powder.

AND, if you can find milk from grass-fed cows (how awful that our agricultural world is such that that's a big "if") it will be full of CLA, which reduces tummy fat. Even though my weight hasn't changed much recently, my tummy has definitely flattened, while eating my yogurt and doing SLD. I use Dumilk milk powder I am lucky enough to be able to purchase easily locally. It's from New Zealand: they are one of the few countries still massively grass-feeding cows. Natural foods stores in the US might have grass-fed cow milk or powder: many individual farms in the US still grass-feed.

Yogurt has repeatedly been proven in experience and study to be so good for us: why give it up, if you like it?

Cheers,
Ann H

Good question.  Generally the enzyme mix your body produces takes a while to adjust between various loads.  But if the same calories of one oil don't have the same effect as the calories of another, you probably are having trouble digesting it all.  Some groups don't digest olive oil well, and large amounts of olive oil cause them to have a laxative effect.  Others don't have a problem.

At about 4-5 tablespoons a day it causes noticable problems for some folks, others just go "huh?"

In general, when you decide to change oils, start by blending them a bit so you work up to the full switch over a week or so, and let your body adjust.
