    i TOOK THE CHALLENGE; Lost a notch in my belt and probably 6 lbs in less than 1 week and was not trying to lose weight nor inches. I was trying to lower a1c as am type 2 Diabetic. I quit taking my metformin and a1c is better than when taking metformin.

    I love potatoes, bread, rice , sweets of all kinds and it is still hard denying my self such things. I tried making bunns but was not successful with recipe. :-( I miss eating a hamburger on roll. I will try making hamburger rolls again and hopefully have more success.

    Good Luck in your journey, will be praying for positive vibes and encouragement to come your way. I've been telling myself that I CAN do this for ME and my SON!

    congrats... i am still learning as well and am wondering.... why are all the receipes nutrition labels in % and not actual #'s so that we can calculate?

    I too would love the site more if they had the better nutrition labels numbers and not percentage. Which is the number one reason I am not a paid subscriber. Soon as they change that I will be.

    I love this dish, so simple and easy. I use sriracha for chili paste and put a lot more than 1 tsp - the butter mellows it out anyway. I substituted cabbage for one of the bell peppers this time and it was still good. make sure to get a pork shoulder with some nice fat. sooo good.
