Your question was: Does wal-mart drug test in the store or will I have to go to lab corp or somewhere?.

Here's my newbie talk. Haven't put it out there in a while....

There are definitely foods that give you more "bang for your buck"get to know them!.

Dairy/proteins are ANY foods which are less than 100 calories, AND less than 3g fat AND at least 7g protein. When I'm having a hungry (or PMS) day, I use Thomas' Light Multigrain English Muffins as one of my protein servingssome people argue that they are a carb not a protein, but the stats are 100cal/1g fat/7g protein/8g fiber. WW muffins fit the bill too. String cheese has 60-80 cal for 1 oz piece, but it also 1 dairy/protein serving. See my point??.

Fats are 40-50 calories. 1t of olive oil to saute you veggies, or 1t peanut butter to spread on your muffin....

Fruitsabout 60 cal2T of raisins or an apple....

Veggiesfill up on them, raw or cooked, just don't cover them in calories..

Free foodsanything less than 20cal/serving. You can have 2-3/day if you need it..

Also REALLY spread your food outbreak up the meals. If you're not really hungry in the morning, you can save part of it for the time of day you are hungry. Try to eat SOMETHING every 3 hours..

As you get use to the program, and are not so hungry all the time, you can start mixing it up, use foods not as filling. It does get easier and you can do this. Have a positive attitude. Make yourself busy so you don't have time to think about food. Drink more water64 oz is really the minimum. I shoot for 1 gallon/day..

I hope this helps. Much success!!..

To add to rehabnurse's point, I almost always eat my fat in nuts as an extra snack. Check your meal planner for how many of different varieties of nuts you are allowed to have (different amounts depending upon the nut). It's more bang for your buck of fat. Same if you eat your fat in peanut butter as rehabnurse suggested...

Comment #2

Unless you are exercising a lot, a gallon of water a day is not healthy...

Comment #3

I would never suggest someone with congestive heart failure, or renal insufficiency/failure drink a gallon of anything, but barring a medical history, 128 oz is not unhealthy. If you take into consideration 128 oz over the course of 16 hours, that's only 8oz per hour. BTW...that is just what I drink...not suggested to anyone else here..

Of course, if you're in doubt, check with your doctorhe/she knows your history...

Comment #4

64 ounces is a minimum for most adults. I drink 1/2 my weight in ounces of water every day. That is 125 ounces of water per day. Spread out over the whole day, it isn't hard to do. Makes me go to the bathroom a lot, but it also keeps me hydrated and satisfied...

Comment #5

Lots of water and very large salads will help take the edge off your hunger. More importantly, give it a few days and you'll find the hunger pangs fading...

Comment #6

The current recommendations for water intake are to drink according to you thirst and not to a set number. Although it is estimated that women should take in an equivalent of 8-9 glasses a day and men about 11 glasses a day, healthy adults may use thirst to determine their fluid needs. However, there is an exception for people with medical condition requiring fluid control; athletes; and people in harsh living conditions. Water intake is calculated not only on actual glasses of water you drink but also all fluid intake is also considered along with the water found in food. Furthermore, studies have shown that drinking water as a diet aid does not necessarily cut the total caloric intake. Fluid may help make certain foods more savory and satisfying, such as found in sauces and soups...

Comment #7

My concern is not about cutting caloric intake, it's about keeping hydrated and allowing my liver to do it's jobmetabolizing fat. Your kidneys require fluid to do their job. If you don't take in enough liquids, the liver has to assist the kidneys, which means it can't do it's job. Also, by the time you feel thirsty, you're already at least minimally dehydrated..

In my original post, I just said to drink a minimum of 64 oz, and added that I shoot for one gallon/day. I am healthy and my doctor is aware of my practices...

Comment #8

As a physician, I am glad you are doing well and consulting with your doctor. I must apolgize if I have offended you. My concern was only that drinking water to a set number is not necessarily a good practice for most people, especially since total water intake is calculted on all fluid intake and not just drinking glasses of water. Many people may not be able to drink a gallon of water a day. I did not mean to imply that this is not right for you. I am sure that your job as a rehab nurse is very strenuous and will require more water intake than the average person.

All things we do need to be customized to the individual and done in moderation. My comment was only meant to let others know that they don't need to set the same goal of drinking water as you do. My other comment concerning using water to cut caloric intake was not meant as a comment on your practices, only as information for others. As you have correctly pointed out it is important to speak to your doctor. Once again, congratulations on your success and sorry if I have offended you...

Comment #9

As a physician, shouldn't you know that if you drink to your thirst, you're actually dehydrating alreadyif you wait until you're thirsty? NS has recommended at least 8 glasses of water a day, so they are setting a benchmark for those of us on the program. We are to go by that, if we don't, we know our results suffer. Just my thoughts.....

Comment #10

Thanks Rehabnurse for your "newbie talk.".

I just signed up on Sunday and I think I'll be referring to your post..

Comment #11

It isn't an offense as maybe your information would have been taken better had you come in, introduced yourself, chatted and then give your expertise.

We might not have the MD behind our names, but many of us have done quite a bit of research and study on metabolism, health, nutrition, etc. So one person coming in and the first comment is "that isn't right" type comment sometimes is not well received..

Otherwise, welcome to NS. Please come in, introduce yourself, grab a treadmill and a BIG GLASS OF WATER!!..

Comment #12

If you buy lean meat, 1oz is ridiculously low for a serving of protein. For instance, the pork roast I bought tonight at Costco I can have 3 oz for my protien serving and that is below 100 calories. I also recommend bison. Upping that protien will help you stay full longer, rev your metabolism up, and help you recover if you work out. So try to find really LEAN protein servings and keep the calories from your protein serving up towards 100. Use 20 calories of healthy fat as your free foods for awhile toofat cuts cravings and hunger.

Good luck,.

I agree that everyone is different when it comes to water intake. Drinking an excessive amount of water can cause water intoxication which is sooo not a good thing. Keep in mind that people who living in dry area of the country or who exercise a lot will probably need to drink higher amounts of water...

Comment #14

Amen Rehabnurse....Water is so good for you in numerous ways. I'm a nurse also and people just don't understand the many ways water works for our bodies. All I drink is water and I love it. That's why I have such good skin!.

Keep up the good posts, this Newbie likes them..

Do you have your booklet, are you:.

1) drinking all of your water - 8, 8 oz glasses?.

2) adding the extra food (fruits, veggies, protein/dairy)?.

You may seem hungry the first few days or week until your body adjusts. Make sure you're eating everything you're suppose to. It may help if you post what you ate today (what and quantities)...
