Hi, Joanne! Yes, I agree that eating more protein is key to help eliminate cravings, and would also add to make sure you’re not way too low on your fat intake, as this can cause us to have uncontrollable cravings. If you are to “cheat,” perhaps try some avocado sprinkled with sea salt alongside your protein source (turkey slices with avocado, for…[Read more]
I just responded to another thread too about eggs and protein! I generally suggest eating the yolk, as that is where the essential nutrients are found, along with half of the excellent protein found in eggs. Don’t fear the yolk! It is also a myth that the cholesterol in eggs raise bad blood cholesterol in the body. If you haven’t seen it, check…[Read more]
All great ideas! And just a note I always like to throw in about eggs…I strongly encourage eating the whole egg instead of just the whites. So many key nutrients are found in egg yolks (vitamin D, A, B3, B6, folate and choline, among others), and half of the excellent protein in eggs comes from the yolk. And, it is a myth that the cholesterol in…[Read more]
You can also switch them up with flax seeds, just to vary the nutrients you’re getting! Variety is always good, with all foods/food groups. With flax seeds, it’s best to buy them whole and then grind them as you go (I use a coffee grinder), as the fatty acids are less prone to oxidation (going rancid) this way. And, keep them in the fridge! One…[Read more]

Hey ladies! I would add that from what I have always learned and recommended to my clients, drinking only a small amount of water right before and with meals is preferable, or as Jessica says, just sipping. If you don’t need to drink water with meals, that’s totally fine too. But getting a lot of water throughout the rest of the day is key! Also…[Read more]
Great suggestion, Sherri! I love to do lettuce wraps with organic deli turkey, tomato, a bit of avocado sprinkled with salt and pepper. You can also do canned tuna or canned salmon (preferably wild), mixed in with your favorite veggies, salt, pepper and a little spice. Nuts also are a good veggie source of protein, but remember that one serving…[Read more]

To piggy back on Jessica’s great ideas, I find the easiest way to spend a lot of money on food is to shop often (shop per meal instead of shop for the week). If you haven’t had the chance to menu plan or any other reason comes up and you aren’t sure what to make, use this as an opportunity for creativity! Scan what you have in the fridge, and then…[Read more]
That’s excellent, Tammy! That should be the ultimate goal of any diet program….to achieve a sustainable and healthy eating patterns and build a positive connection to food. So, great work!!
There is a lot of buzz in the health and nutrition world about candida and candida cleanses. Candida is a type of yeast that commonly causes yeast infections, and also SUGAR CRAVINGS. PS1000 has some great anti-candida aspects to the diet (mainly, it is low in sugar), but I’d love to hear about your experiences so we can support each other with…[Read more]
Tammy, I love that! I think that a lot of healthy eating success (I like to think of it like that rather than the word ‘dieting’) is being kind and patient with ourselves. If we admit that sometimes we slip and probably won’t always be perfect, we are much more able to accept these slips in stride and simply get back on track. However, if we beat…[Read more]
Hey ladies! Great thread here, and remember, sugar IS an addiction, similar to other drugs. If we can put in the hard work to break the addiction, it will be much easier in the long run to make good choices. Right now, your hormonal reactions are causing you to crave sugar, so it’s not just will power alone! Keep up the good work, I know it’s…[Read more]
Thanks for sharing, Judalon! An elimination diet (to pinpoint allergies), certainly can be tricky. You can read my article about it for a bit more info, if you’d like! https://my.ps1000.com/how-to-do-an-elimination-diet-and-uncover-hidden-food-allergies/
One fascinating note is that symptoms of eating foods we are sensitive or allergic to…[Read more]
Hey everyone! Do you struggle with food allergies or sensitivities? Do you suspect you have them but haven’t been diagnosed? As a Nutritionist, I find that a lot of my clients suffer symptoms of unknown sensitivities to food, and this can make weight loss difficult. What have your experiences been?
What a great thread! And the beautiful part of putting in all of this hard work in the beginning, is that once healthy eating slowly but surely becomes habit, it doesn’t feel quite so hard, anymore! And that’s really what we’re going for right? Long-term, sustainable change that doesn’t feel like we’re always “dieting.” Keep it up!!

Those are great suggestions! I also like to do half of an avocado sprinkled with a bit of salt…this is a filling and satiating snack option!
