Orgasmic Diet anyone?

So this week I'm starting my first diet, and it's not to lose weight! Marrena Lindberg wrote this great book about this diet she's created that improves hormone flow and boosts sexual appetite and ability. Has anyone heard about it?

I'm really curious to find others using this (or similar) diets and how they go about it. I'm especially looking at what other women eat on this diet. It's hard for me to plan my grocery list around meals when I can't include starches and have no idea what I'll want to eat next Thursday!

I'm just looking for someone to talk to and share ideas with <3 ~Cyn

    1. Can't include starches = I'm not going to try it.

        Well, the idea is to cut down on starchy carbs. It's been really hard because i love potatoes and rice, but I'm working on just cutting them down little by little. I love veggies, so I think I can make it ^-^

          I got that from your post. It sound like an Atkins type of diet. There's been plenty of discussion about it on these boards.

            I'm not sure what starchy carbs are, but you might want to consider avoiding JUST processed carbs. I have found that whole grains -- and I mean not even ground into flour -- work for me. Neither do regular potatoes. So farro, wheat berries, barley, brown rice, wild rice, sweet potatoes are fine. It's the refined stuff that has a really high glycemic index that are a problem.

        2. No point in my trying it - hubby's gone 3/4 of the year for work travel. That's enough "diet" for some of us ;-)
