Dieticians, menu planning?

Recommended Posts


Does anyone have leads on Dieticians for menu planning. At some point I will have to return to work once my ob is clear, I have a demanding schedule, hubby and three kids. All supportive, but I am not supper woman, we are just a blue collar family trying to keep up with the pace. Is there a service out there that knows all this stuff, and can provide a menu and shopping lists. I am thinking it may be worth the investment.I have no problem learning as I go, but my family and career inhibbit me from becomming my own certified dietician.

You might be able to find a "shopper" for you - like a personal errand-runner. A lot of times stay at home moms do stuff like that. She could then grocery shop for you. You might have to plan and cook.

There are also places that will make dinners for you that you just put in the freezer. My Girlfriend's Kitchen and Dream Dinners are the ones we have here. Usually you come in and make it there, but for a bit extra, they'll make it for you and you just pick it up. You throw them all in the freezer and thaw and heat them when you're ready.

Not all of that is the most nutritious thing ever, but it might be worth it to free up some time.

3 kids, a job and a hubby to all take care of?

You are a super woman =)

Under the "fight back" section, there is a link called "lysine food chart".

This should show you the best food groups to stick to in your shopping.

Also make sure you boost your immune system daily with good does of vitamin c. As needed for those hectic lives.

Oh yeah and add some zinc citrate in there as well.

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
