Thank you all so much for your lovely welcome back and the comforting words mean so much to me,I have had a very positive start to my day,its only 4-20am in the morning,and as I was tossing and turning.
I decided to get up and clean my fridge out,and today I am going to do a grocery shop,with all the good foods that is allowed on my program.
I found in the past,that planning my meals 3 days in advance and making note of all I eat ,was the best way to go, today is my new start.
Have a wonderful day everyone.
Maureen.

Sorry to hear about your dad. Losing a parent is one of the worst things I've endured. I hope good memories of him give you comfort.

My deep commiseration , and glad you are back to care about your health.

Thanks,
Interesting , breathing deeply reduces levels of cortisol. I am trying 10 min breathing type meditation, and find it relieves stress, may be cortisol too!!

As far as grains goes for me there isn't any thing as good grains they all cause me problems..

Learn to be calm and you will always be happy.

.Breathe deeply and reduce your levels of cortisol

According to a study from The University of Utah, women with Binge Eating Disorder (BED) who breathed deeply reduced their snacking by half and cut their levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, by 25 per cent. "We expel 70 per cent of our toxins through breathing, which can have a calming effect on the body," says Platkin. "Cortisol triggers cravings for sugary or salty snacks, so anything that controls cortisol is good." Alternatively, set the stage for food-free relaxation by having a warm bath while listening to soothing music.

.Unhappy, depressed or discontented?

Chances are you'll crave a protein-rich, fatty food like pizza, which boosts feelgood endorphin levels. To maintain a sustained endorphin release throughout the day, focus on high-fibre grains and lean protein like low-fat cheese, yoghurt, chicken and fish. "These complex carbohydrates and high-protein foods produce both endorphins and serotonin to keep your mood happy and euphoric.

.There's no doubt that a piece of pie will make you feel better, but it won't last Beat late-night stress by munching on low-kilojoule foods like apples, celery or carrot sticks dipped in hummus. "The crunch factor gives your stress-induced anxiety time to calm down without causing a rapid rise in blood sugar," Dr Stutman says. "The process of chewing also causes your facial and neck muscles to relax, which relieves stress and tension.
