I want to do it right next time. I'm tired of gaining back half or more of my P2 losses. I really have to remember to BE PATIENT. I still have to figure out just exactly how to ask my mom to KEEP IT SIMPLE when we go visit her on Easter weekend. I think I might try to do what you're doing.

 

Do you have issues with dairy, maybe?  I can't remember if you've talked about that in the past or not.  But if you are following protocol in P3 and having a hard time stabilizing chances are you are reacting to something you are eating.  The extra weight could be due to inflammation.  Dairy products are the most likely culprit as there are no grains in P3.  Just a thought.

I don't mind giving you a menu at all.  When you're getting ready for P3, remind me, K?  I don't know if it will work for you, but so far it's works well for me.  smile.gif

I saw it on some other blogs were people had better comments:)  I figure if I smother it in cheese and sauce it will taste good regardless lol.   Think I am going to make enchiladas tomorrow

I dunno. Maybe. I don't look inflamed. I don't feel inflamed. My gut doesn't do icky stuff. I just...well, my first two P3s I gained back about 4lbs and then kinda-sorta stabilized there, but it wasn't easy. Had to be very, very vigilant and weigh me and weigh and keep track of foods still and I was hoping to get beyond that...but like I said, I just went apeshit in P4 and went right back to my old habits at some point.

Aw, you don't have to wait; you can post it now. I won't be in P3 for awhile. I'll probably save it and peruse it when the time comes smile.gif Thanks!

WOW, the TT pizza crust recipe is the best one I've had yet - I made it with all coconut flour, no flax.  I'm going to try it with the flax too, but the all coconut ROCKED!  Making half a recipe is the perfect personal size pizza.  Delicious!  Thanks for sharing that link!

Yay, glad you liked it!  And I agree, half the recipe makes a great personal size pizza.  I usually make the whole thing and then split it in two- one for DH, one for me.  Although a lot of the time I can only eat half of my my personal one, it is very filling!

I thought for sure I'd only eat half, but I wanted the rest.  Half really should be enough, probably. 

 

I made it today with the flax, and added basil and garlic powder and it pretty much masked the coconut flavor.  I think my husband would eat it that way.  He doesn't do coconut at all and pretty much hates anything with coconut.

How did you do the pizza crust again? Can you post recipe with and without the flax meal? Thanks! No P3 for me for awhile, but I want to plan ahead winky.gif

 

Actually we're going to my mom's part of the week of 4/11-15, for ds's spring break, and I'm going to have to plan an interruption to my P2 while I'm there greensad.gif It'll only be like VLCDs 18-23 or something. So I am going to go off the drops a day or so before, and try my arse off to antidote the hHCG, and do a modified P2/P3 while I'm there, then go back into P2 on the way home. Or start the drops on the way home but start P2 when I get here. I hope it doesn't impact TOO much.
