Feingold question

I've read the latest threads about the red dye, etc. and I have a few follow up questions about the feingold plan. How difficult is it really? I have all but eliminated dairy from my ds' diet and I tried to cut wheat at one point, but it was almost impossible. I felt pretty defeated after the try with wheat; but I just felt it wasn't workable for our household. I don't have time to bake wheat free bread every week. And, I want to be able to buy the items at my one supermarket instead of driving all over town or ordering online. Can I still do the feingold program with these pramaters or does someone have another suggestion? And, what do you substitue for fruit snacks? And how to I handle it if my ds' school offers these things for snack?

Re: Feingold question

They give you an acceptable food list with the program - including premade items that are easily found at the grocery store I give Chloe some of the Just Tomatoes fruits - either Bananas or pineapple instead of the fruit snacks, she's happy with that (so far). I also ordered a school pack along with the materials, should have them next week.

Re: Feingold question

All though I'd like to tell you it is simple, I think there is room for disagreement there. In many ways the program is simple because they provide detailed lists and have really great support groups. But what it all boils down to is how much you want it. If your not ready for a lifestyle change it will seem like torture - that is how any food adjustment always felt to me before.

For me, I have just started seeing a lot of things going wrong in my life and my familys life and I can no longer claim ignorance to what is going on within my family and I am READY for a change.

It would probably help to read some of the success stories to give you motivation. I am not trying to discourage you in anyway but I always felt like I must be completely a wimp when everyone told me something was easy and it wound up being really hard for me. I think people just get to a point in their lives when they say "we can't live like this anymore" and that is where I am.

Also, you don't have to go full blown on the program. Take it one step at a time and you are more likely to live with the changes long term. I really recommend the book that was mentioned in the other thread because she lists out a very good step by step way to change your eating habits. It is not related to Feingold, per say, but in eating healthier food and avoiding anything processed or boxed.
