The Ezekiel English muffins are BIG. A serving size is ½ but I did not know till later so I ate ¾ of one. Very expensive. I am looking forward to making my own bread. I can put in lots of bran and flax-seed. I control the ingredients. To me, wheat bran tastes very bitter, I put orange juice in and there is no bitterness.
I am feeling better. Less pain. I had 2 spoonfuls of Bragg apple cider vinegar. No big whoosh yet. I had the pharmacist review my medications and supplements to help me figure out why I have so many problems with elimination. I do remember an old trick that worked at times and it is called the bomb. Mix Milk of Magnesia in hot prune juice. I would never suggest anyone try this.
I do not have much of an appetite. But I did work hard on making a nice supper and it was good. All Dukan style. The very small sweet potato was chosen because of the high fiber content and great color. I forgot to buy apples but had freezer burn berries and that worked out well.
I do resent that I am always finding out more when he could have been clearer. I have added natural psyllium fiber (thank you Miss C) due to constipation. Now, now just today I find this on facebook.
“Dukan Diet – US Hi Ali–Dr Dukan approved 1 teaspoon of flax seeds as a tolerated item for constipation.”
Too little, too late.
List of US tolerated items would be helpful. Direction on when to use tolerated and when not to. Clear directions. Simple clear directions. Not information scattered all over the book and now hidden in facebook. They should be running well monitored forums.
How long has this been on the NY Times best seller list??
I finally got my internet bill resolved. 3 tedious weeks down from $197.38 to $19.95. “ Oh lady this new service costs nothing extra. No installation charge, no hidden charges. “ Good old AT&T trying to make money by lying to old ladies. Three weeks of my supervisor will call you. They were waiting for me to give up.
I am sorry my Dear friends. I am cranky also. Forgive me.
