    Default Angela doesn't want to eat in school.

    We still haven't sorted out the ins and outs of the South Beach diet just
    yet. She only has 2 more days of school this week but... She has decided
    that she just won't eat in school. That is not acceptable on this diet or
    really for any reason, IMO.

    She and I are not at all alike in that she very much cares what other people
    think of/about her. I never did. But I think she fears that others will
    make fun of her food. They did do so when she was younger and I sent in
    leftovers for her lunch. But it was difficult when she was on the gluten
    free diet. Because gluten free bread really needs to be heated it some way
    to keep it from crumbling. She insisted for a long time that she take only
    sandwiches. And then she discovered the Teff wraps so she ate those.

    But this year? She has been taking very little to school. Pretty much only
    a snack. And that just won't do any more. She also doesn't want to eat
    breakfast. Mostly this year if she ate anything at all it was a serving of
    baby carrots. She just said she wasn't hungry and didn't want to eat. But
    she has to now because she has to take the Welchol in the morning and it has
    to be taken with school. AFAIK she doesn't have high cholesterol which is
    what the Welchol is for and frankly I have extreme reservations about
    putting her on it but... The gastroenterologist said she *has* to be on the
    Metformin so he is hoping this will stop the diarrhea.

    I still have to read the book but it looks like for the first week she has
    to eat protein and low carb veggies and beans. I suggested a cup of hummus
    and baby carrots with a piece of beef jerky for her lunch. She doesn't want
    to do this because the food gets warm by lunch time. And she doesn't want
    to take an ice pack. Apparently the kids would make fun of an ice pack.

    She is also refusing to buy lunch. Not that the lunch they offer would fit
    in with this diet but perhaps at least on some days there would be parts of
    the lunch she could eat. But... She says the kids who buy lunch have to
    wait so long in line that there is no time to eat.

    The Atkins and South Beach bars are things she would like to eat but out of
    the question given her food intolerances and the thyroid problem. She can't
    have nuts, coconut or soy and they contain one or more of those things.

    Can anyone think of something she could eat that would look like normal
    food? I am thinking the ice pack is just going to have to be a given. Gah!

    Just how warm could the food get? supercool it first? or get an ice pack that is
    disguised as a sandwich? or so what?
