Thanks for the info. Really. What scares me is doing without caffeine. I know I probably should, but yannow...
The thing that works as a pick-me-up is my iced coffee in the afternoon. I am blessed that as long as I have my iced coffee before 5pm, I have no problems sleeping. The caffeine in pop doesn't seem to affect me. I hear people can't sleep if they ingest what I do, yet I don't have a problem at all. I have noticed coffee, even one cup, after 5pm does make a difference so you would think the pop would, too. Maybe it does and I just don't notice it b/c I haven't tried it.
I didn't have to give up caffeine. I still have coffee. When I craved something warm I mixed coffee and unsweetened cocoa and stevia and it was quite good. I could have had milk but I chose to stay off dairy as well.

I did not have any craving for soda, but I have drunk a lot of herb tea with a wedge of lemon in the pot

My boss is out sick two days in a row now -- she's rarely sick. One of the nosey know-it-all partners ALWAYS asks what people have, what kind of illness did they have, etc. He'll grill you when you are back to work from behing home sick. He just came over now and asked what illness does my boss have. She has a bad case of none of your fucking business.
This guy does this to me, too, after I"ve been out sick. DUde, it was cramps or my bowels turned to liquid, either way, MYOB.
Geez, just yesterday, I covered the front desk from 8 until 11:30 b/c our receptionist was out with an appointment.
Partner: "Oh, is S out sick?"
Me: No, she just won't be in until 11:30.
Partner: What's she doing?
Me: I don't know.(all of this said with a very flat, don't know, don't care, go away tone)
Partner: Well I hope she's feeling okay.
Whatever. I know then when he stopped by her desk he was all in her business with whatever she had going on in the morning. This guy doesn't let up. And b/c his son and DIL are doctors, he thinks he knows as much as a doctor does and will actually give medical advice.
Although *I* don't care to know what kind of sickness people have when they stay home sick, I really don't see a problem. Anytime I don't come in, I get asked about it. I have no problem telling them. I don't feel violated in any way. And if there is something I don't wish to share, I have no problem lying or being vague.

And really -- WHO CARES if the receptionist is out sick? Is it so important to know the "why"? It's really none of his bees wax.

Friend getting married has dropped 10 pounds in two weeks by cutting out bread and pasta. I asked her what she's been eating. She sent me their week's worth of meals (she plans them in advance, otherwise she knows she'll fall back on bread and pasta). Believe me, they are eating PLENTY and they are eating yummy stuff.

THen she sent me this article she got from her trainer re: why grains aren't the best way to get nutrition. Interesting stuff to read, for those who care:

That fits in with thetheory of the one I am on.

Lunch today:leftover Christmas turkey defrosted and cooked in crock pot with chicken broth, some older little baby carrotsfrom the back of the vegetable drawer in the fridge, cut up onion and a box of fresh mushrooms and spices plus one half baked sweet potato on the side. Very filling. Texture like pulled pork. Todays spice was curry powder. Yesterday's was black pepper, garlic powder and some lemon with some white and brown rice.
