Beginner’s Basics for THM

For over a year I’ve had a closed group on FB where I put ideas, collect recipes I want to try, etc. as I see ideas in the THM FB groups.  My pinned post in that group is what I’ll put here–it is the resources that I point my friends to when they ask how I’ve lost the weight and basic info about THM.  Enjoy!

I really enjoyed this woman’s post in the big FB group–explained things really well in a nice simple way:


Basically – I begin all my meals/snacks with my protein–if I know it’s going to be a fatty protein (or that other parts of my meal are fatty) then I choose other foods that will work with that (non-starchy veggies, other fats, no grains).  If my protein is low fat – or I’m wanting something like a grain (I am VERY MUCH a bread girl–LOVE bread) then I choose other foods that work in an E meal (non starchy veggies, fruits, grains, legumes).  And if I’m just hungry and need something quick – I try to make most of my snacks ‘FP’ which is neither too fatty or carby.
