Not being able to sleep is not good at all. What have you tried to help you?March 18, 2014 at 12:36 am #15948kelly11Participant
Cal mag, supplement, then magnesium oil on my tummy, and life style changes, like no lights, no computers for a time before bed, relaxing meditation etc. but any suggestions are greatly appreciated!March 18, 2014 at 5:50 pm #15954clarefaithParticipant
Thanks Lianda, I am debating about the thyroid meds, if I do give it a try, I will start with a really low dose. My blood tests are normal, but a lot of my symptoms suggest a low thyroid. With food, sleep, etc, I can only barely reach 98.6, but I never stay there for long, and I am getting discouraged.March 18, 2014 at 9:10 pm #15956
I hope you have a good practitioner- and keep records of your present symptoms and temps so you can track your progress. If you DO have thyroid problems, stress relief is one of the most important things you can do to manage it! Good luck!April 19, 2014 at 8:07 am #16191
Hi Matt! I just happen to pick up your book when a blog I followed posted it as a free book on Amazon. I never thought that I would ‘need’ it because even though I did suffer from anorexia back in 2006, now I am in a much better place since discovering the weight room. And I am not afraid to eat. I read that cold fingers and toes was a sign of a slow metabolism and blew it off because I was diagnosed with Raynaud’s Syndrome when I got of the military. But then I continued to read that if you drink a lot of water and pee multiple times in the night that I could have a damaged metabolism. This was when I got worried and decided to take my temp. So what I have found, after following a few small steps is that I stay around 97.4-97.7 (on average) except after I train. After training I am around 95.1 or 95.2, then I eat my post workout protein muffin and drink a protein shake. Today I was beyond freezing and my fingers when white and numb (Raynaud’s) so I decided to take my temp and it was 93.1!! I immediately ran and got into the hot shower to try to warm up and this was when I began to have a metallic taste in my mouth. Then my husband told me that is a sign of a potential stroke. I’m exteremly concerned with how low my temp gets after training. Is this normal?April 19, 2014 at 4:03 pm #16195mandybeeParticipant
Hi cChristenbery. I just wanted to reply as this post doesn’t seem to be monitored closely, and it sounds like you are needing advice asap. I have been following matts work for a whike and have had a lot of success with it. While I am not an expert, and I don’t feel comfortable giving nutritional advice, I do know that you need to stop workinh out immediately. Your body is not in a good state of health by the sound of it, and if you exert it, it will make matters worse. The best thing you can do right now is to rest. And maybe contact matt directly for a one on one.April 19, 2014 at 6:58 pm #16197
Thank you MandyBee! The thing is, I never even thought I had a problem. I just randomly started reading Diet Recovery cause I got it for free. I honestly think this book probably saved my life! I am just blown away right now that “I” have a damaged metabolism. I was anorexic back in 2006 and since dieted (mostly starved) off and on but then about 2 years ago I really got into lifting weights and now I EAT! I mean really eat so I never thought it was possible for me to have a problem. I was diagnosed with Raynuad’s syndrome after my bout with anorexia, which now makes sense that it’s not raynyad’s its actually a symptom of a damaged metabolism. I currently workout for 2 hours 6 days a week, not because I am forcing myself, but because I love to lift weights. I am not sure my mental health could handle not working out at all but I would be willing to take it down a notch to an hour of training and see if that helps improve anything. I really appreciate your quick response. I was really really worried yesterday when my temp dropped all the way to 93.1. I have only been tracking my temp for 3 days now but that was the lowest and I felt the worst. I am looking forward to fixing my metabolism but I am also so scared of the process since I have struggled with my body image for my entire life.April 19, 2014 at 7:48 pm #16199
I think it would also be prudent to get your thyroid checked right away. That temperature is VERY low.
Follow Matt’s advice for recovery- eating frequently- Salt, sugar, saturated fat, and sleep. Cut back on the exercise significantly, and do some form of stress relief daily. Watch your temps to see if they improve with these changes.
I know that the body image issue can make it hard to for you to stop the exercise and start eating more- but we’re talking about you health right now. It’s up to you to take care of yourself… Good luck!May 1, 2014 at 12:27 pm #16308yayhowfunParticipant
Hi CChristenberry! When you say “I eat!” can you share more about that? What levels of macronutrients are you getting? Are you eating only protein and fat? Do you eat carbs and sugars? Give me an overview of your typical day.May 2, 2014 at 12:20 am #16321
Hi Yayhowfun! Up until last week when I entered competition prep (and wasn’t tracking my food), I was eating (if I had to guess) 3000-3500 calories a day. Now that I am in competition prep, I eat about 2700-2800, 40% protein, 15% fat and 45% carbs. So I’m averaging about 200 grams protein, 70 grams of fat and 300 grams of carbs. I eat my oat bran and banana in the morning, before I train and then eat more oat bran and banana and honey in the morning after I train. Then I have eziekel bread with my chicken salad at lunch. After that I get the rest of my carbs mostly from vegetables. Every 3 days I eat starchy carbs throughout the day to help spike my insulin. I train 6 days a week with only 3 days of HIIT cardio not lasting more than 20 mins.May 4, 2014 at 7:33 pm #16326metamessParticipant
I thought it was normal to have a temp in the 97s upon waking. It’s the average of the 3 daytime temps that we want to increase?June 6, 2014 at 12:57 pm #16605jackkkmanParticipant

My fat loss is slowing down to the point that it doesn’t exist anymore.
I am at 1500 calories per day, intermittent fasting. I would like to increase my metabolism so that when I go back on 1500 calories I could continue losing weight again.——————————–

Mackk1 – I think you must not have read Matt’s books, blog or posts. You are not eating enough. When you don’t eat sufficient calories, your metabolism slows down- and intermittent fasting exacerbates the problem! Your weight will just return to your pre-diet level because you are sabotaging your health by not eating enough.
My suggestion: get Matt’s book- Diet Recovery 2, and read it – and follow it. STOP dieting!June 18, 2014 at 1:40 am #16679jonathanobstpsParticipant
