So many questions! I buy GasStop at a local organic grocery store chain (Vitamin Cottage), and I have bought it at Whole Foods before.

I don't eat a HUGE lunch; I try to never eat more than 1.5 cups of food at a time. For dinner, I just make sure I eat a small portion - about half of what my husband eats! I don't eat meat, so that helps. Maybe instead of a whole chicken breast eat half of one, and take the other half for lunch the next day?

My breakfast smoothie has a banana for SF and frozen berries for IF (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries). I add a little rice milk, some vanilla rice protein powder (helps keep me from getting hungry so quickly!!), and my acacia. I can manage to go almost three hours before I get hungry for my morning snack (cream of rice with 1.5 tablespoons of ground flax meal). Then for lunch I'll have leftovers from dinner the night before, or a Tofurky sandwich, or some Amy's soup. If you eat sandwiches, try adding a piece of lettuce or tomato slice for IF. I have been using hamburger buns lately instead of bread, and I use half of a white bun and half of a wheat bun, so that's some extra IF.

You really just need to slowly start adding in IF - but try to puree or blend stuff. The smoothie is a good start. Try bean dips or hummus with baked corn chips. That way the beans are pureed and easier to digest. For dinner, an easy one is pasta. I make my own sauce by sauteing garlic and then adding 28 oz of crushed tomatoes. then I'll throw in some chopped veggies like pepperoncinis, zucchini, fresh herbs, etc.

I take 1 tablespoon of acacia three times a day - but it took me a good year to work up to that dose, so be patient!! increasing too quickly gave me really bad gas, so take it slow. I just mix it into my three main meals so it gives me some SF cushioning.

Does that help? Did I answer everything?
