I say there are carbs in everything! lol I had a bite of hubby's pasta the other night and it tasted like wall paper paste- make you feel better? :P I've gone with Amanda Benham via email- filled out all the paperwork/questionnaires now I'm just waiting for her feedback and menu! fingers crossed I like it and can stick to it... although I wouldn't hold your breath on the carbs, cause I mentioned they don't really agree with me... maybe she'll make me eat lots of quinoa and brown rice?... they don't seem to be as bad... But in preparation I've upped my calories and managed to get to a more 'normal' intake (1300cal) and frustratingly put on 4kg in the last week... which would be impressive if it was muscle but since I've been sick and only doing pilates and yoga there's no chance of that! Fingers crossed its water...


1300 cal at your bodyweight is extremely low. The basal metabolic rate for a 70 kg woman should be roughly about 1500 calories. Add in 2 hours of cardio a day and you are basically turning your body into a fat storing/muscle depleting machine by being in an extremely negative calorie balance. Being sick and lack of sleep wouldn't be helping either.

I think Amanda (username Epona) posts on the QLD vegetarian & vegan society forum if you want to get an idea of her dietician style :)

Have you ever been tested for gluten intolerance? That could be an issue if quinoa and brown rice don't seem to give you problems and other carbs do.

Thanks! you know everything :D I'll have a read tonight.
I've never been tested for anything.. I greatly dislike going to the doctors, I went to one when I thought I was going to pass out at uni from the stomach cramps but he just said eat more vegetables, you probably have IBS. So I worked out what hurts and what doesn't and stuck to that.
I think I'm doing good with my calories, well much better than before! I've gone from 200 to 1300...I'm working up to 1600- almost there!

interesting read lately Bee :)

One thing to remember with weight loss is that if it has taken you your lifetime to put on the weight, it will be a long term project to lose it. Unfortunately so many of these marketed quick schemes rely on temporary weight loss like water weight, and lie to their customers about the benefits, and that has created the atmosphere where results need to show fast. But slow and long is the way to go :)

Stay strong!

Thanks JP :) I'm feeling much stronger than before (and more sane) but I can safely say my weight will be a life long project.. I've been overweight since I was about 4 weeks old.. got over the underweight premature baby thing too effectively! Your right, slow and steady will win this race.. and more importantly be able to enjoy the journey!
This mess has made me very grateful for the forum. I really needed those pushes in the right direction- thank you all!

What is soyaroni? Like peperoni? Sounds amazing for pizza.

That sounds good, we should totally invent that!
It's a soy pasta... like twirls, I don't know why they went with soyaroni it doesn't look like macaroni.. I guess soy pasta twirls wasn't catchy enough :P
I'm a masochist.. pasta hurts, why did I feel the need to try the soy pasta? who knows- but it tastes damn good! (for anyone in australia, it's a san remo product)
