We use the ziplock "snack" bags as well......they work great....plus since we are only feeding 5 gliders, the "goop" can defrost in less than 2 hours....with the exception of tofu they continue to lick their little bowls clean

GOOD DAY Everyone, I was wondering if anyone who has started this diet since this thread started would comment on how they and the gliders like it. Have you seen any differences in the glider?

Thank you for sharing

Hi everyone. I am Very late coming to this thread. As I started reading, I became very interested in this topic and possibly switching to P's diet from BML. My problem was, I knew I could not remember all the great tips from all the pages of this topic. I have copied and pasted all of the information from this entire 7-page thread into one easily printed document. I cut out most of the correspondence type questions, the links, and photos. What is left is questions, answers, and facts. I know some of you would probably like this for printing also. If you want a copy PM me your email and I will send it out. I will do better if you PM me instead of replying to this post. (I will read all my PM's and not necessarily read the posts).


Could someone please email me the updated care sheets from Priscilla? (amandasnow@bellsouth.net) I can also add these to the pages of forum topics that I will email out. Thanks so much..

I have been looking over this diet and the Suncoast for some time now. I am currently on the BML which has been fine but I find it to be too restricting. From what I've read Suggies need nutritional enrichment to be happy, which means a lot of variety. I contacted both Priscilla "The Pet Glider" and Lisa at "Suncoast" and was really happy with the responses I received. They were very quick at getting back to me (1 day) and answered my questions. I have decided to go with P's for a number of reasons. Variety being #1. I wasn't very keen on the ingredients of the Zoo Keepers Secret, 1st ingredient being meat by-product as opposed to sugar glider cereal being soy,fruits and vegetables. Even if my gliders don't eat the dried staple the vitamins have many of the extra ingredients I have been researching to give my gliders such as Bee Pollen, acacia gum, etc. I have new copies of P's diet sheets if anyone needs them and will be ordering her supplements this week to start my gliders on. Thanks to all who participated in this post as it just confirmed how great I was already thinking this diet would be!

We've been on P's diet here for about a month now.
Deka has cleaned his plate EVERYNIGHT since the switch.

Last night I found some of thoes mini-muffin silcione pans and they worked PERFECTLY for freezing the mix.

He LOVES the vitamins! I had an awful headache, one night and my BF forgot to put the vitamins on his food.
Deka stood on top of his glider kitchen and barked up a storm until I finally figured out what his problem was, added the vitiamins and he was good to go! LOL

He dosen't eat as much of the dry pellets as he did of the SunCoast.
But he loves playing with the Monkey Biscuts. He trys to run with them in his wheel, carries them into his pouch.

I love how simple it is to make, and the cost of the vitamins aren't really an issue when you only have one or two gliders.

Okay, you guys MIGHT have me sold, still debating here. My turn for questions. I have 20 or so gliders (I loose count, lol) so I would make 1 whole batch of each every time. So, this would be the recipe for mine, right?

Quote:
Presentation:

25 oz unsweetened applesauce

4 oz Dannon non-fat plain yogurt

3 oz concentrated calcium fortified orange juice, no water added

3/4 c Old Fashioned Oats (NO QUICK COOKING OATS)

1 T fresh ground flax seed or wheat germ, refrigerated

In a large mixing bowl, with a wooden spoon, mix the applesauce, oats, yogurt, wheat germ and orange juice. Divide into two equal portions. To portion one, add: 6 small or medium eggs, scrambled. To portion two, add: 1.5 lb unseasoned, unsalted, broiled shredded chicken.

Add 3/4 cup various chopped or precut fruits and vegetables to each portion. Freeze flat in quart size freezer bags (1/2" or less thick). If you choose to use pre-cut frozen produce, do not use vegetables which have a high ratio of corn.

Break off a frozen piece of the basic mix.


Feeding schedule should be:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday: Basic Mix

Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday: Basic Mix Plus Mealworms (about 20 per glider)


Would it be okay to do veggies in one batch and fruits in another??

Now it is 10 meallies per glider per night instead of 20 on the designated days right?

How long does one batch usually last? Right now I feed PML and 1 batch usually last me about 4 days.

Is this, concentrated calcium fortified orange juice, no water added, the frozen orange juice?

I would want to blend the fruits/veggies into the mixture, since it takes me forever every night to cut up fruits; those of you who mix it in, do your gliders still eat it all?

I have a few overweight gliders and I am kind of leary about giving them 10 meallies everynight. Has anyone had any problems with overweight gliders gaining more weight or not loosing weight on this diet?

At $40 for vitamins for 1 glider/year that puts me at about $800 a year for vitamins, OUCH!! That I don't know if I can handle.

Lyns, I feed 10 mealies per glider every day (except for Lilo who only gets 3 because she's on a diet)

My 1st batch lasted about 3 weeks, but that was with 3 gliders for the first 2 weeks, and 5 for a week..

Yes, it's the frozen OJ

Mine eat everything every night, it's the cleanest I've ever seen bowls, lol.. Even when L&H were mating last week, they still ate, which was a 1st!

Lilo has lost 6 grams in 3 weeks on this diet, but she's under close vet supervision to make sure she's losing at an ok rate. She only gets 3 mealies per night wink

If you email P, I'm sure you can get a deal on vitamins, ask Laura, she just ordered a huge supply for her crew smile

Okay guys, and it is the reg sized meallies or the giant ones?? Because I cannot see myself ever letting each glider have 10 giant meallies every night, that is way too much.

arg - I just ordered my second batch of vitamins. I ordered the 180 day bag the first time, because I wasn't sure my kids would eat this diet. But they clean their plates every night. So the 180 day bag was gone in a month. This time I ordered it in the 360 day bag. There should be a pound option or I'll be ordering every month - arg!

I made my first batch of P's diet last night. My little ones have eaten some of the goop, but seem more interested in the monkey biscuits and glider cereal right now. Have any of you had a similar situation?

We make batches and then blend different fruits and veggies in different combinations...the only thing they didn't clean was the tofu...lol.....we really like it because of the variety....and we had a blast making it.....felt like a mad chemist.....by the way...our little fluffy girl looks much thinner and she gets the same number of mealies as everyone else....our don't really go for the hard foods first anymore...before it seemed like just curiosity....we do see them eat both the cereal and the bisquits but mostly I think they just carry them around for fun....lol....

I'm still trying to figure out, for sure, how much 1 batch would last for 22 gliders. . . anyone know??? Becki, I think our math was off last night, lol. I am thinking 1 batch is only going to last me 1 day dunno

Still wondering if it's the giant meallies or the reg meallies??

Lynsie-

Just my own personal experience: When I make a batch that strictly follows the recipe on P's website I get 18-19 ice cubes that are 2 tablespoons each. So for me, one batch equals about 37 tablespoons of goop. I feed different than the recipe in that I serve the goop, fruits/veggies, and protein each separately (that's just a personal preference and there's no real reason I feed that way). Because I feed the staple separately, I know that every night my boys get 1 tablespoon of goop each. If you feed according to P's instructions by breaking off a hunk of frozen mix already containing fruit/veg/protein, I would think the length of time a batch lasts would vary slightly depending on the exact size of piece you break off.

About the mealies... you might want to look through all the glider pics on P's site and judge the size of mealies she feeds her gliders for yourself. You can see how big they look in her adult glider's hands and then compare to your own.

HTH!

Well I have ice cube trays that hold 1 tbls cubes. So each glider would get 1 cube.

If those are the meallies she uses then they are the giant meallies, and I would probably only give my gliders 3-4 each, no way I would give 10 a day. 10 a day at 22 gliders would mean 220 meallies a day, which means I would be going through 500 meallies every 2 days. No way!! lol
