I too am an orthodox jew from Maryland. Got banded on 1-21-08.

These support sites are great, always make me feel much better when I am contiplating eating something bad.

I am a frum female from ny. I am apatient of Dr. Ren @ nyu. I would imagine there are a lot of frum people on this site based on the patients I see in their waiting room. Anyway, maybe someone should just start a new thread on the main page for frum people.

There never seems to be enough of us to keep it going. I'm being banding on April 30, and I'm off all foods that bother me, so matzah is included. I'm not asking how much.....I found a friend for first night who supports me and won't bug me to eat what makes me ill. That goes for hte grape juice also. In general however, other than issues on Yom Kippur, health comes before anything. Don't worry about it.

Does anyone know of a good Kosher (dairy or parve, of course) whey or egg based Protein supplement? My son needs to increase his calories (I should have such problems) and was told to take Protein supplements. Unfortunately, none of the standard brands in the grocery stores have heksures (did I spell that correctly????) and he doesn't want to depend on only soy products.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I've been told by someone who did the reseach, that most of these products are kosher by but most don't go for the hecksher.

My view is different. It's medicine- it's medically required. As such it falls outside the usual kashrut standards unless you are extremely "darti" in which case you probably wouldn't find anything to use.

For myself, I believe health come first.

My advise for other is (always), consult your Rav if you live by one.

Best,

Gwenn

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
