|Foods||bottom line on coffee??||May 05 2007
I believe if you try to supress your cravings, you'll end up just eating more to compensate. There was an article on WebMD that showed coffee contains fiber, and there are some newly discovered health benefits.
Treat yourself, you only live once!
|Foods||Fiber: Benefiber VS. Fiber35||Apr 25 2007
|Well, if the ingredients are the same, then try it. I've used store brand fiber supplements and they have all worked well.|
|Foods||Special K Protein H20...||Apr 20 2007
|It's way too expensive and wasteful.|
|Foods||Anyone else try Diet Coke PLUS?||Apr 19 2007
|I tried it. Came in the same cans as the regular diet coke does, and costs the same. It also tastes the same too. I'm on my third diet coke plus today. I really do like it.|
|Foods||quaker oatmeal - keeps you full||Apr 15 2007
I use store brand rolled oats. (Publix)
I know, I'm cheap.
|Health & Support||Anyone else on anti-depressants or other weight-gaining drugs?||Apr 14 2007
I'm on lexapro, but now I'm getting my dosage increased. They've worked for a year, but now they just don't work like they're supposed to. If the dosage increase doesn't work, then I'll probally switch drugs.
Currently, Wellbutrin is the only antidepressent that doesn't contribute to weight gain, and helps you loose weight. My friend lost weight on it. The only problem is it makes anxiety worse, so I just can't take it.
|Foods||Anyone else try Diet Coke PLUS?||Apr 14 2007

|Health & Support||Bipolar friends needed!||Apr 12 2007
The medications can cause you to eat the entire fridge.
I've just went through my third psychiatrist in one year. Two of them just moved away. My newest one listens to me more and we have longer sessions. It's great to have talk therapy along with medication therapy. I think it makes a world of a difference.
|Foods||"Healthiest" cereal?||Apr 08 2007
|I like the Honey Nut Toasted Oats (Cheerio's). I buy the Publix Greenwise brand, which is organic and has more real honey taste to it. It's whole grain too! Whole grain oats is the first ingredient.|
|Foods||Does anyone know were i can find the calorie count for pollo tropical (tropigrill) ??||Apr 02 2007
|They have handouts over there that have all the details.|
|Health & Support||Bipolar friends needed!||Apr 01 2007
|I have bipolar disorder too. It can be tough. Talk to me whenever you want to.|
|Foods||Oatmeal||Mar 31 2007
Artificial sweeteners are under the brand names splenda, sweet 'n low, and equal. They all have under 5 calories per two teaspoon equivalents of sugar. Sweet 'N Low is the cheapest. You can find them in the baking isle, with the sugar.
Try a tablespoon or two of jam.
How about adding fresh or frozen fruit to your oatmeal? A handful would be good. If it's frozen, I would defiantly add the fruit before cooking.
|Foods||Oatmeal||Mar 31 2007
I add a packet of artifical sweetner, along with that you can add raisins and/or cinnamon.
Here is a recipe for applesauce oats: http://hillbillyhousewife.com/applesauceoatme al.htm
|Foods||Diet Arizona Green Tea Energy Drink||Mar 26 2007
|I love that drink. The price is right compared to Red Bull!|
|Health & Support||Living With OCD||Mar 26 2007
I know OCD is horrible. I have Bipolar depression, which almost always comes with way more than one mental disorder. Along with it I have panic disorder w/ agorophobia, OCD, and social anxiety disorder. I barely ever leave my house and rarely have friends over. It can be like living in your own prision.
I've been out on Lexapro, Seroquel, and Xanax XR. All seem to help, but I still have problems day to day.
Hope you feel better. Remember your not the only one.
|Foods||does salmon make you queasy?||Mar 25 2007
|Well, if you rarely have salmon or never have eaten it, you may feel a bit queasy. This can also apply to any meat. On St. Patricks day I tried corned beef (I haven't had beef in over 7 years), and I felt very queasy. I couldn't finish it. Perhaps it's the same thing.|
|Foods||this is getting realy old...||Mar 25 2007
Prozac kinda works for the first month (it's like that w/ all SSRI's), but it will work much better after a few months. There really isn't anything instant you can do. :( It takes time.
In the meantime, try and get in touch with some hobbies, even if you don't feel like you are enjoying them.
Maybe getting some caffeine from green tea would help. Eat the right foods, just not all junk food. Get better soon!
