Hi everyone..I hope no one else has made the same mistake I have…needing to lose weight I thought I would try Slim Shots…didnt know it would affect my one day it shot up 30 points and 2nd day 40..the box does not say that diabetics should be aware…I was doing reall well with taking cinnamon capsules…according to on line information..aspartame can cause BS problems and that is in SlimShots…I learned a lesson.

I bought a yogurt maker, it wasn't that much. Have to set it up and give it a test run this weekend.

I've always canned at least a few things every year and have a garden, but the big D gives me an excuse to expand greatly on all aspects of home production and preservation.

At least that way I know what I'm eating and that it didn't get laced with DDT before being shipped here from Bolivia.

I unfortunately lost track of the source of the following, but it is great info regarding how to make yoghurt without paying for a yoghurt machine. The quote is as follows and my apologies to the author for not keeping her/his name with the excerpt. I wish I could give the author the credit that is due.
"When I was growing up, my mother made yogurt in a cute little Salton machine, but she didn't really need one, something I learned from Milk. Mendelson's classic yogurt formula, which is identical to the method offered by food scientist Harold McGee in a recent New York Times story, could not be simpler: You heat and then cool a half-gallon of milk, stir in 4 tablespoons of yogurt, and leave the mixture in a warm place (like a turned-off oven 20 minutes after you've removed the roast) overnight. In the morning, pour it into a sieve lined with a clean pillowcase to drain. (Save the whey, which you can use instead of water when you make bread or bagels.) After a few hours: yogurt. The first time I watched this metamorphosis, I felt like a sorcerer."

Hi Ann,
I have found that Aspartame can cause many problems, and I stopped using it or anything having it as an ingredient some time ago.It can actually give some people Fibromialgia like symptoms, and I know that being a person with Acid Reflux it caused me problems there as well.I personally will not take anything with Aspartame in it.

Have you considered buying plain non fat yoghurt and adding your own Splenda and flavoring? I have done this and made vanilla yoghurt (very good because I use real vanilla extract), cinnamon (good with apple, rasberry (yes, there is good tasting rasberry extract), coconut with coconut extract - good with pineapple as fruit - you get the idea

Can I ask,"What is a slimShot"? And is this something you talked to your PCP or Endo about? I take nothing unless talking to my MD first. Just wondering.

Slim shots is a small cup (like a creamer) that is taken twice a day..disgusting taste..but I gagged it down because it seemed to work…than BG shot up and as of today has not come down even though I haven't used it in 3 days…I guess we all want the magic cure…decided to excersise even though I hate it

sorry to hear you had issues with aspertene. I never had issues but everyone is different. Hope all works out for you. Thanks for the warning.
