    Maybe you aren’t eating enough? When I was doing 2lbs of veg and 5 fruits a day I was, unthinkably, constipated. I was struggling to get to 1200 calories. I think one of Matt’s books says that if you don’t eat enough then your body has to suck out every nutrient possible of what you consume so that it makes it hard to go. If you think your gut is messed up drink Kombucha instead of water. It’s a live probiotic. It’s pricey but super easy to make yourself. Or go with some full fact live probiotic yogurt.

    Thanks for the response. Glad I read I read it before putting in the Jillian Michaels yoga DVD! Opted for a much more soothing Denise Austin. I did get 7 uninterrupted hours of sleep last night so that was pretty epic. I will take all of your suggestions and I am really working on the sleep thing, crossing my fingers my toddler will cooperate!

    I was no carb/sugar from Sept-Oct having been told I was leptin resistant. I lost 12 lbs and stopped due to holidays, birthdays, anniversaries etc…Stayed even with my weight. In January I did the Joel Furhman 2 lbs of veg and 5 fruits etc. thing for 2 weeks and was constipated and freezing, body temp was usually 96.5. Previous to all of that I was an at home vegan. That started 5 years ago and I did the 2 lbs of veg to get started and lost 20 lbs. After 6 mo that wasn’t do-able as I really just couldn’t eat enough to stay full so I just did regular vegan. When I was pregnant (my son is almost 3) I fed my cravings, only gained 31 lbs and have not been able to lose 21 lbs of baby weight. My son is now weaning himself and I know that might be what’s making things rough for me. This past summer I was the green smoothie queen (no protein, just fruit and veg) and gained 12 lbs. The only time I didn’t gain weight was when we were in TX and AR eating bbq everyday. Hmmm…So I started Eat for Heat in mid January and gained 12 lbs but then this last week I gained another 5. Can’t figure that part out. Thank you for any help that you can offer. I know all of my previous restrictions are what led to this!
