L-Glutamine Versus the PMS Monster

A helpful note from the Kimkins forums about cravings:

"Lingering or strong cravings, especially for sweets or alcohol, can usually be banished if you start taking L-Glutamine. L-Glutamine is an amino acid (protein) supplement, found at nutrition stores or drug stores. (Walmart carries it in with the body-building and weight loss powders and shakes, in the pharmacy area.) A jug of powder is around $10, and the powder is better than the pills. Stir 1 tablespoon into a little water or other diet drink every morning and evening, or when the urge hits. (This is not essential, but it really helps some people to break the nighttime snacking habit, and some women just use it for 'time of the month' cravings.)"

I will put it to the test.

Other points for me to remember:

  • Eat when hungry, but only when hungry. (Not just because it's a certain time or a certain situation or habit.)
  • Eat to the point of being satisfied, but not overly-full.
  • When appetites drops, learn to pay attention to that, honor it, and drop your eating level to match.
  • Don't force low calories, but don't fear them either.

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
