WHOO HOO!!! I broke my plateau!

Jergens skin firming lotion works well. Give it a couple weeks, but I've had good luck with that. It's relatively inexpensive and smells nice. Good work on the loss and sticking with it!!

Avoid clumpy casein by using hot water

For those of you who use a chocolate casein mix (I used Gold Standard). Try using warm or hot water. This really breaks down the casein much better than cold water and resembles hot chocolate. I h...

Bresaola and Prosciutto crudo

Those are rich meats and you wouldn't be eating large portions of them. They would not have a significant impact on blood sugar, so I say go for it in moderation!

TIP: I found casein powder without artificial sweeteners.

I was looking to switch up my whey shake that has acetasulfane K (sp?) and sucralose and found it on a bodybuilder forum. Not a bad price, either. http://www.musclefeast.com/
