I am! I just ordered some Glucocoman today. I've kind of been following moderately, but I think sugar might be ruined for me (in a good way!) I never realized how much sugar & carbs were in the things I was eating...crazy! Anyways, I have the book, and I'd love to come chat with you ladies.

How's everyone doing? I've dropped 5 lbs. since starting the THM plan. I'm not following perfectly, but have made several changes in my eating habits, and it has definitely brought about positive change. Very encouraged, and I hope you all are, as well!

Re: Trim Healthy Mama

What is the basic premise of the diet? Is it low carb?

Clean eating is the best way I can find to describe it. (no sugar, low carbs, natural ingredients, veggies, eggs, meat, etc.) The book is great...very informative & has a bunch of recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, etc. I'm not really an info book reader, but this has a lot of invaluable info, imo. I'll honestly say, I've mostly skimmed most sections, but what I have read has been very helpful!

They have a page on Facebook if you'd like further info.

My own testimony is that I have not been having sugar, minus the occasional bit of honey in my tea & fruit smoothie, and today went to eat a Twizzler, and could not even stand to finish one piece. I had no problem eating 1/2 the bag before giving up sugar.

Re: Trim Healthy Mama

Can it be done while nursing? What does this mean for eating whole wheat breads, corn tortillas, beans, and brown rice? These are staples in our home.

I am currently nursing my almost 8 month old, and haven't seen any issues in milk production. There is a testimony of a pregnant woman doing the THM program that was recently on their Facebook page. I haven't read a whole lot about the breads, though they do include recipes for bread, I believe. Man, I'm really unsure on the rest, too sorry...I will say that I have eaten white rice, which I realize is not as great as brown, and have still seen results. I just know I replaced my regular flour tortillas with a Carb Balance tortilla that they recommended. The lack of white sugar/high fructose corn syrup has been the most helpful to my personal weightloss, I believe. Before giving up sugar, I was unable to see good results. HTH a little!

I would definitely take a look at their Facebook page. I've messaged them with a question, and they responded same day.

Hi Kimmie, Sorry, totally didn't mean to overlook your question.

I'm not great at explaining things, but the gist is that it's a no sugar, natural ingredients, veggies, eggs, clean eating kind of 'diet'. It's written by 2 sisters, and has lots of useful info on health and nutrition, recipes, etc. I've been really encouraged by the changes I've seen since starting the THM plan (in moderation). Definitely worth checking out! They have a Facebook page, along with testimonies & more info if you're interested.
