    Learning about it more and how it effects you. Not only that but keeping around low phe snack foods I find help me. When I dont have them around I always find myself getting into higher phe foods. Things I keep around in my purse or fridge are dried fruit, carrots, celery, veggy chips..my formula helps too. When I start thinking i’m hungry i make my formula and it usually curbs my craving for food.

    Hey! The easiest way to get through college is to mentally prepare yourself for diligence with your diet.. Between the cafeteria, pizza parties and all nighter grub-fests, its SOO SOO difficult to “be good”. What I do is make sure that Im making right choices. If Im eating in the cafeteria with friends (popular hangout) I make sure that I do the salad bar or get a small order of fries. Im eating WITH my friends but not what their eating and most of the time they just think Im a health nut! If its a pizza party you can prep a couple LP pizzas you make yourself and freeze each week depending on how many parties you need them for! Then when your asked what your eating It gives you a great chance to let your friends in on PKU and when they start to understand it they usually become great supports although there are a few you may have to remind often that you’ve had this all your life and don’t need them breathing down your throat with every bite… Also, veggie trays are great for all nighters and there is a LP food company called country sunrise that makes sausage, hotdogs, beef patties, cheeses and all kinds of things that although are “fake” can help make you feel not so left out. Good luck in school. Let me know how it goes! Nickelle

    I usually don’t bother telling anyone. I’m in college and if someone offers me something I just refuse.. I personally hate having to explain it every time. Only my friends and my boyfriends know.. and I’m ok with that. The only thing that gets me in trouble is the beer. When you’re in school and broke and friends start partying the beer comes out.. I always bring my own hard a if i’m going to a party. that way I won’t be be tempted to drink any beer.

    12 oz of beer is usually 40 plus mgs of protien. The darker the beer the more protien it is.I am on a 350mg diet…so that’s a ton of mgs for me for just one beer.

    In terms of telling people, I usually just say I am a vegetarian or vegan or something…but I have always found that telling people sooner rather than later helps. Getting it over with makes things SO much easier later on.
