No worries Gremlin...

Yours is EXACTLY the response I was hoping for. No panic, just the knowledge of a possible issue.

Well last week my weight loss was really weird (put on a kilo overnight and then continued to fluctuate for the rest of the week). I put that down to all the exercise I did and lack of sleep during Relay for Life plus perhaps water intake being insufficient. I also had my little deviation (about 40g roast chicken).

I'll cut the curry powder this week and see how things go - pity as I love the Clive of India curry powder. Will be interesting to see your progress too Gremlin.

Thanks for your reply asy.

I have stopped using Clive of India cos it was impacting on my weight loss. I now make my own curry powder and the weight loss has picked up again.

So I must be just one of those persons where it affects me. Oh well, I am living without alot of things so no biggie for me.

No, actually, you are living with a lot of good things that are just getting better and better every day. Not even counting the extra energy you are feeling and the better attitude towards everyday things that would normally cause grinding of the teeth, pursing of the lips or myriad other signs of aggravation or annoyance. All because our hormones are slowly returned to a normal balance. So see, you are not giving up anything but you are receiving even more!

I am new to Cohens and in my newsletter there was a special warning included about curry powder:
Apparently "Clive of India" curry powder contains FENUGREEK. (see quote from newsletter)

"This is a spice that affects SOME people as if they were eating sugar. Please have a look at 'fenugreek' in Wikipedia, its a really interesting page...
1. If you have been using Clive of India curry (any variety of it) and have been having slow weight loss, please STOP using it.
2. If you have been using it and are still losing quickly and aren't hungry, fine, keep going, but, keep this in mind if you slow down.
3. If you have not used it yet - PLEASE DON'T. It's much safer to just make your own (recipe was in your programme folder)."


This newsletter was from the Brisbane Clinic.

Interesting .....
I love a dash of curry powder, so I guess I will be making my own.

I have been using a curry power (suggested by my consultant) which contained fenugreek. Reading above i have since stopped using it. I use another curry power (also allowed) with no fenugreek. Could be the reason my weightloss has been slow.

Hi Tish,

Even if no fenugreek, do watch out for the things that had Cohens say "No" to Keens - things like "starch, anti-clumping powder" or whatever. I can't recall the exact words, but read the first post, and check your WW one in relation to it.

Hi Koh, no other ingredients like starch etc. It only contains the spices and no preservatives. I love making curry everyday with the woolies curry powder.

My understanding from the Brisbane clinic is that there is no commercially manufactured curry powder available in Australia that is Cohens friendly.

My advice Tish would be if you are concerned about slow weight loss, the very first thing I would do would be to ditch the curry powder and make your own using the spices they put in them and know there is nothing hidden and non-Cohens friendly.

I make all my spices at home but bought the woolworths curry powder because it was recommended by my consultant. I'l try using my own since I don't add anything in my spice.

Ok, I have just emailed my clinic to double check but when it comes to curry I always reckon err on the side of caution because it can be such a big problem for some people.

fenugreek has many names and it will depend upon where the spice was sources as to the name. some are as follows but each nationality ( and racial area) has its own name.
these are some methi, halba, aluva bokshomlee
it may also be called foenum-graecum or trigonella
do not trust store brands with contenrs lists as they rely on the manufacturers
some of the effects include increasing lactation in women ( breastfeeding) and lowering serun cholesterol
cheers

I got a reply from my clinic regarding which curry powder to use. They said I could use the Cape Malay curry powder (This one I stopped using because it contains fenugreek). Now Im totally confused as to which is allowed. I thought my clinic would know.

Hi Tish
I'm not sure why your clinic doesn't know about the fenugreek but all I can say is the safest thing to do is to make your own. I've asked for a recipe to be sent to me but if you scroll back a page on this post you will see determined28 has posted the ingredients she uses to make her own.
