    Happy August, Modders!
    4 me, the supps really helped a lot. Actually, over time they did. 5 htp really put back the serotonin in my brain ( I know, fuzzy science) and now alcohol doesn't even taste good to me. But never ever have alcohol and 5 htp together if you do that! I think the book MWO was great but also Julia Ross books for even more supplement advice.
    You are off to a great start!

    Hi Modders

    Things are going VERY well in my neck of the woods. I have been on the Paleo/Primal Blueprint 'diet' (though it's not a 'diet' as such, more a lifestyle) for a week now and have lost 4lb already. Have been eating a lot and never feeling deprived, have good energy, am in good spirits and my moods feel a lot more stable already.

    Something I noticed almost immediately was a disappearance of alcohol cravings!! As per my mod plan, I don't drink alone and I don't have any at the house but I do sometimes have an AF beer. Usually when I have them I will drink 2-3 and there is some desire there to have that specifically, as opposed to another AF drink. Over the weekend, I had 1AF beer both nights and then stopped. It wasn't even really conscious - I remember thinking I would have a second one and then basically forgetting about it and getting some water! This is new and great.

    Last night another great success. My bloke came over for supper and we bought a bottle of wine to share. I started to look forward to having some as soon as we had bought it (which is funny as, up to that point, I hadn't been bothered about it). I had my 3 glasses max, really enjoyed them. Boyfriend didn't want all of 'his' half but I didn't even ask if I could have just one more glass. The cork went back in and the rest of the bottle has gone away with him this morning!

    I am stoked that so far, this is really working out. I have high hopes this is totally sustainable. It's making me happy and that's motivating in itself.
    Have a wonderful day all.

    I bought 'The Paleo Diet Cookbook' by Loren Cordain because I wanted some new recipe ideas and I have spent a lot of time reading on Mark's Daily Apple which follows the Primal Blueprint - essentially the same but a few different principles too.

    Are you going to start it?

    I think so. Do you have more energy now? I always want more energy.

    Lila, I wil check out the Julia Ross book, thanks for the tip. Did you stay af for 30 days before modding?

    Bean, the paleo diet sounds interesting. Wow, four pounds in a week is great.

    I still need to order the cd's and check into supplements. I am really not having that hard of a time not drinking. Only when I get off work I think about it. Must be the stress!

    Have a good night.

    hi 4me
    I did ten days had a drink, then the next night I had another drink, (and that seemed plenty!) and then I had my 5 thp/alcohol reaction, and now I don't even want any alcohol. So I am not counting the days. Now that feels like just another chore I am not doing! Last time I had a beer it tasted horrible! I am not sure what all happened, but I am happy. Two weeks ago, I couldn't imagine life without alcohol and now it is not even appealing.
    I know all about stress! That was of course my biggest trigger, and boredom! When my kids would go to their dad's I wouldn't know what to do with myself!
    good night, modders!

    Dropping by to say hi, arrived safely at our retirement home last night. Was not AF during 1700 mile trip but very much in control per plan. Think Aug plan for me will be like July with the 10 days allowed but count starts from today.
    Welcome to 4me, have just skimmed everyone's posts, will be back later.

    TMH, are there palm trees? Lemon and lime trees? Sounds so exciting. I could see myself retiring there someday....

    Hi TMH - was wondering where you'd got to! Glad to hear you arrived safely. Let the next stage begin!!

    Lila - I do have more energy (I think) from following the Paleo diet but I already ate very healthily apart from the toast, crackers and pasta. I was eating gluten free rice pasta (because I thought it was better for me), hadn't really had potatoes in a long time (apart from sweet or yams which are allowed) and am not a big junk food eater. In recent years my biggest energy zapper has been AL but now that I am consuming moderate amounts, I am not finding that a problem.

    Today I worked cleaning for 4.5 hours, took care of a 4 year old for 3 hours, then worked at a 2nd job where I am on my feet constantly for 3 hours - all without any break. I had an omelette this morning and a tuna salad for lunch and that was it so yes, thinking about it, I must have more energy because I certainly burnt off a lot today!!

    New Day Now - are you there? Shanny? Any one else lurking? 4me....what's happening with you? have you finished the book yet? Decided what your plan is?
