Do you happen to know what a TOLF (or was that TOFL?) might be ? I came across it in another post yesterday.
So many thanks again & congrats too for the sustained weight loss - you must be feeling great !
carbohydrates are molecules composed of carbon (C), hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O)
Many Thanks Carorees
I was thinking it could be cholesterol but as people interchange CHO and carbs in the same message I thought CHO was something different!
1. It seems like a prawn is just your word for a shrimp. In my dictionary it's a "marine crustacean that resembles a large shrimp." Maybe you only have prawns there, not shrimp?
2. Everyone knows that the British eat porridge. But I've never known exactly what that is. Is it the same as our oatmeal? Or can you make it from various grains? I had McCann's steel cut oatmeal for breakfast today. The Irish sure send some great oats our way...
3. Perusing the recipes, I just learned that you call squash "marrow". Weird. Never heard that one. Over here, marrow is the stuff inside meat bones that some people eat.
4. And most important...pudding! We all know about pudding, of course, because we've all heard the Pink Floyd song (How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat!). I think a pudding is any dessert including cake. But I'm not sure. And if it is, do you eat what we would call pudding? Smooth chocolatty (or butterscotch or vanilla) goodness. What do you call that?
All good questions, I'm sure you'll agree! Thanks for clarifying.
... and king prawns....
(I'm sure there are others too but I can't think of them!)
Oats are flattened...
Whereas oatmeal over here is ground...
"Pudding" is used as an alternative word for dessert over here.... as in "MUM! What's for pudding???" but we do have some desserts that have the term as part of the name. For example rice pudding or bread and butter pudding. So it can be specific to a name or a generic term. We also sometimes call dessert/pudding "afters", just to throw another one at you!!
Squash is the generic term over here for things like marrows and pumpkins but the only time you really hear it is when we use the term "butternut squash". The other type of marrow you mention, we always refer to as "bone marrow".
Hope that helps....
@Carorees could we have an abbreviation please for liquid only fasting - LOF?
And your other messages demonstrate how positive this approach can be.
