Does the recipe for Hearty Country Loaf actually call for both flaxseed AND flaxseed flour? My recipe is several years old. Thanks in advance!

Tony Thank you so much for your response to my questions.  I thought for a bit that I may be on my own with no forum support but then you came to my rescue  :-*  I tried E mailing Doug and his two responses came back with no script.  I'm no computer wiz and so I'm not sure why there was no script, perhaps it has something to do with spam, but again I'm rather computer illiterate .  Anyway I'm really happy to have heard from you so thank you again.

Of, course!... You're more than welcome! :)

Don't know about your email problem. You could try sending him a message thru the forum.

Just look near the top of the page for "My Messages",
hover your mouse over it and select "Send a Message",
type in "Doug Varrieur", then compose and send your message.

Sometimes Doug gets quite busy, so be patient for a response. It may take some time.

Take Care! :)

Hi, BellaNoela!  :)

As I'm here answering another question you posted, I'll answer here for Morgan.

The forum has become very quiet. However, Doug keeps it active so that folks like you can refer to the our many FTS (Fat to Skinny) recipes and other support. I try to check in at least every few days to help folks like you.

Cream (especially heavy whipping) is very low carb. I've even found it with zero net carbs. Cream cheese is also very low carb and permissible. However, ALWAYS check nutrition labels on foods for carb counts. They are NOT all the same across all brands and will even sometimes change for a given brand.

If you have any other questions, please let us know! :) :) :)

Hello, BellaNoela!  :)

I use cream cheese everyday on a GG bran cracker that I eat each morning with my vitamin and other supplements. I also use heavy cream in many things. Both items are FTS (FAT to Skinny) friendly. Both are very low (or no) carb.

Remember, it's the carb count that matters most. You have 20 net carb gram limit per day to "spend" on whatever food you like. I suggest adding greens to your menu each day for added fiber and other nutrients. Be sure to check carb counts on those, too.

Be sure to ALWAYS check labels for carb counts BEFORE buying any food.

Hi, RonaldHare!  :)

Eating foods high in calcium and vitamin D are a good choice to start. But the net carb count of ANYTHING we eat makes a BIG difference in weight loss results. That must be taken into account BEFORE we place the food choice in our mouths.

Bananas are NOT a good choice for the FTS low-carb lifestyle during weight loss toward goal weight. During this time, we STRICTLY limit ourselves to 20 net carb grams per day. Some people find they need to eat a few less than that to see progress. Some may do well with a FEW more.

So you know, ONLY ONE medium banana has about 24 net carb grams. And two of them would about FORTY-EIGHT GRAMS! That's more than TWO DAYS' net carb allowance!

After we reach goal weight, we may find that we can eat an occasional banana without major impact. But until then, it is NOT advised for successful weight loss.
