By following Luise's Sane Weight Loss strategies, this reader has lost almost 30 pounds. She no longer uses convenience foods with ingredients that Luise recommends against in her “10 Rules.” She sent Luise this request: “Luise, I am dying to make a chicken noodle casserole. In the past I would use either cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup but I don't use those anymore. Can you find me a recipe to replace that item?”
