how do you get along with the diet? Is it always easy for you to stick to the “allowed” and low protein foods? For me, since I’ve tried out almost every kind of normal food (which I do regret at times, I guess it’s less likely to long for something its taste you don’t know 😀 ) it’s pretty hard. I’m always trying to fight against longings and BE RESONABLE.
First of all it’s important to be aware or get aware of your main problems.
When I am extremly hungry and I go shopping, I make unwise decisions. Also
when I am at home and too hungry, I use to eat while cooking the meal (or even before), usually out of the refrigerator. Also a difficult situation
is more likely to appear when it’s the end of the week and shopping needs to be made. Just had this problem yesterday. Since had no fruits at home, I grabbed a slice of normal bread from my fiancés supplies. I simply didn’t think properly about this action. I could have eaten a slice of PKU bread instead since there was still enough there plus I really like the taste of this bread.
Then it’s all about finding solutions which work for you.
I know we shall be dieting for life. Which is good and I don’t put that in question at all, since I know that it is necessary to keep healthy and sane. But it might not be the best phrase to convince you in a difficult moment to grab something with low protein. Do you agree with that? It might even demoralize and lead to worse failures. I’m trying to tell myself that I take it step by step. It’s not the slice of normal bread or the glass of milk or the chocolate bar or even pasta or a meal with meat from time to
time which threatens the diet or your health, it’s the sum of them alltogether which makes it dangerous. So I am a big fan of allowing myself exceptions every now and then. I also use to calculate normal bread into my diet plan when I’m longing for it. I just need to be conscious of what I am eating exactly and how much phe it contains and then enjoy it as well, not eating something out of the refrigerator. I’m working on that.
What are your main problems with the diet? Are you doing well? What are your ideas of outthinking yourself during difficult situations?
In the end we really have to be proud of every step we’re making. Most (healthy) people don’t even have a little clue on how difficult it is to be restricted in food matters and they don’t even think about how blessed they are to be able to eat without thinking about any consequences because for them there are none (except for a possible overweight when eating to much 😀 ) But on the other hand, we are blessed too, we should not forget about this. We have the possibility to follow the diet, we have good medical guidance, we have special foods which makes a lot easier. A lot of people in the past hadn’t. So we should all make the best out of it.
I’m really excited about your thoughts and tips.
