    Hi everyone,

    I'm having trouble with SS, I'm still getting sick and diahorrea nearly two weeks into the diet and my CDC has recommended that I try adding a meal now to see if its just that my body doesn't react well to a purely liquid diet. :(

    Thing is, if I'm going to eat, I want to enjoy it, even if it is just a tiny taste! :p

    Anyone got any good recipes for AAM???

    I've just finished my first aam meal, and kept things quite simple, as I was worried I might want to pig out afterwards;)

    But my favourite meal I had was:

    cottage cheese mixed with diced celery, cucumber, cracked pepper and a tiny sprinkle of paprika on a bed of rocket lettuce and watercress:)

    also:

    chicken and mushrooms grilled with as many sprouts as I could fit on a tablespoon!!!!! (I love sprouts:eek: )

    Hope you find something you like, and the tummy troubles get better;)

    ooooh thanks Tracey - the cottage cheese idea sounds great - I'll definitely try that. :p And Grilled mushrooms...mmmmmm- i love grilled mushrooms! Will have to try it with quorn though, as I'm not a big meat eater (90% veggie) plus the fact that you get an extra ounce of quorn! hehehe :D

    I hope everyone puts their fave AAM recipies on here, to help me out a bit! :eek:

    This made me laugh.. 1st because I can picture you trying to get more than 2 sprouts on a table spoon and 2nd I am thinking just like you are... I love sprouts as well... never realised before I did this but I am fancying things that I would usually leave on my plate (would eat 5 roast spuds and two yorkshire puds before bothering about sprouts....)


    Lovelyjoolz....I am on my 1st aam week now and I have had quorn a couple of times.. I just get the chunks and do them in my griddle pan with a few chilli flakes on n have them with lettuce...
    It's only really a mouthfull anyway.. I'm looking at it as tasty morsal week more than add a meal.....

    Kindest regards

    :eek: :eek: Oooo.... that's really kind of you to say Podgey, but I don't feel like much of an inspiration. I feel more like reaching for a bag of crisps and thinking SOD IT!!! :rolleyes:

    I tried Tracey's cottage cheese reciepe last night and 4 oz is quite a lot. And if you use a small plate it looks like quite a satisfying meal. It was really yummy too, so mega mega thanks to you Tracey!! :D

    And the good news is that my tummy is much more settled today, so it seemes that it really was acting up as a response to the purely liquid diet. Thing is, I've read so many posts that say that their weight loss REALLY slows during AAM that I don't want to eat a meal every day. Also, its just another opportunity for cheating!! So I'm going to try having a little teeny meal every couple of days, or everytime my tummy plays up and see how I get on.

    Hopefully it won't slow me down too much!!

    Really glad you enjoyed the cottage cheese, and that tummy is feeling a lot better:D :D

    Hopefully you'll find the diet a lot more enjoyable now.

    I haven't tried the bars yet. I've just finished week 3 so I'm probably ready to give them a go. I'll ask my CDC if I can have some with my next order.

    Feeling a bit rubbish lately, so that will give me something different to look forward to!

    Hi J,

    Have you tried slitting the packs to make 6 smaller meals and drinking plenty of water in between shakes?

    Or tried the Lactose Free. I had someone with the same problem then I suggested they try the Lactose Free, though they said the didn't have a problem with milk or dairy, but it did the trick. No more Diahorra or sickness:) .
