Well I know that I will not be ignoring the thermometer if it is the best measure of the metabolism— which is linked with hormones— which I KNOW are completely messed up. I fluctuate between cold hands/feet, to hot flash-like. I want to heal my metabolism so that hormones can be balanced. I don’t believe they are mutually exclusive. There are many more hormones that just the sexual and growth ones people always think of, and I greatly desire to balance them all.
It’s hard to know exactly what macro-nutrient helps/hinders me. I eat meals that are generally balanced, so this experimenting with heavy fats, or heavy carbs… is out of my comfort zone. I was extremely surprised this morning to find that (after eating so many carbs yesterday) my temp was so low. I ate a fair amount of carbs today too, so I will see what my temp is tomorrow morning. If it is low again, I have to try stressing a different macro (fats will be next).
I will say that I have noticed a bit more energy in the past 2-3 days and I have retired the enema bag these past 2 days. BUT again, if temp is the best measure of metabolism, mine’s still awful— and the scariest thing is that I don’t know how long it will take as I cannot remember having a normal temp for puberty upwards.
