and yes, having a teaspoon of olive oil on an empty stomach in the morning will help with gas/bloating. it tastes TERRIBLE to me though. and i think i won't need to have it again for awhile! :-)  it did help me on tuesday/wednesday though!

snack 125 ginger candies

lunch very healthy  and tasty 575 included beans, sweet potato, small noodle salad with olive oil and spinach, green peppers, strawberries.

snack: craving for chips. was great! 350

dinner: around 650 of my usual fare...taco bell chalupa, yogurt, bran crackers, small  milkshake.   :)

total cal: 2100. good stuff.

exercise: none except for walking during the day around the hospital.

Great day today! Good for you allowing your chips =) Paying attention to our cravings helps prevent overindulging later on **thumbs up**


nita51 on 03/04/2010:
So true, but I don't think my brain can comprehend moderation. (LOL) So for now, I'll just steer clear, at lease until I gain a little more self control over my danger foods. Wish I were like you, but.....I'm getting better every day.:) Thanks for the info on Olive Oil. I'll pass it on. Hugs!


selina on 03/05/2010:
HI HoP! Good to hear you are doing well!

I was reading you entry and remembered that I went to an olive oil tasting (just like wine tasting) at a winery a few years back in France. They actually taste it in wine glasses! I prefer tasting olive oil by dipping bread into it - yum!


selina on 03/05/2010:
Actually, the tasting was at a winery/olive orchard....


selina on 03/05/2010:
laughing cow cheese is good - it tastes and spreads like cream cheese.... the low fat sort doesn't taste as good, though. But it's better for you...
