    Personally for me it was to lose weight and get back to the prebaby weight and quickly but the joke was it never got me there quickly did it 9 years later LOL. I picked up Matt’s book after doing paleo and getting the cold hands and feet and taking my temps and finding them in the 96’s and then I became concerned. The eating at TDEE was before finding the Eat for Heat book and that was finally just coming to terms that slow and steady wins the race and with consistency in cals intake and training I would eventually level at the weight consistent with my training and intake. Which I still believe is the safer route to take. I don’t know where it will take me weight wise and that’s ok as long as I am getting stronger and am healthy. Before kids I never had to think about my weight, I just worked out and ate a somewhat healthy diet, never had a weight issue.

    In the morning I have gotten 98.1 for 2 days in a row. Those temps I took were mid day after lunch. Interesting though. Thanks for the input.

    They apple cider vinegar itself will do enough to clear out any bad bacteria in the gut, especially the organic one with the mother in it.

    I did weight watchers 9 years ago, lost 30lbs got pregnant with my first child. That was the first time I was ever on a diet, I was almost 30.

    About a year after the first child (2005) I went back on Weight Watchers and didn’t have any success. Then just went to the gym working out and lost some weight from increasing activity, got pregnant with my 2nd child (2006).

    About a year after that I started Weight Watchers again….no go again. I never stayed on any of it long enough. My weight bounced all over the place probably from a mixture of the hormones and stress.

    Then in 2010 someone introduced me to Primal Blueprint. I immediately lost 30lbs and found myself pregnant with my 3rd child (2010-2011).

    In the winter of 2011 I went back on primal blueprint and between Jan-May of 2012 I lost 40lbs. I ended up only gaining 10lbs of it back and since that time have gone up and down in that same 10lb range.

    In the Fall of 2012 I ordered a month’s worth of Medifast in desperation…couldn’t make it longer than 3 days on that crap. It tasted bad and I was starving, went through the holidays just normal without any diets.

    Then in March 2013 I attempted Carb Nite Solution….lost that 10lbs in a month and couldn’t handle the low carbs anymore. Too much brain fog, I was training too much to be able to be sustainable.

    April 2013 I stopped and started reading up on eating at your TDEE and working out moderately and that is what I have been doing up until I got a hold of Matt’s books through Batty a former Primal BPer and then I also found Go Kaleo in that time. So here I am. I have been eating about 2600-2900cals a day consistently for 3 months, I gained back the 10lbs I lost on Carb Nite but have gone down 2 dress sizes since April. I am 5’10” and at 210lbs, 39 year old female. I lift 2-3x’s a week with an occasional HIIT maybe once a week or once every 2 weeks.

    I have found that taking 5HTP and GABA along with 500mg of Magnesium are a good sleep aid and they help calm the nervous system. I fall asleep in minutes, although I still wake up in the 2-4am window to pee, but I have only started my regimen on RRARF 2 days ago, so I don’t expect miracles LOL. I will say prior to finding this site I was following a site that encouraged eating your TDEE and once I started eating more I got my menses back and like clockwork every month now. I have PCOS and in 20+ years of having a cycle I would only get them 2-3x’s a year. Now I am 39 and done having kids I am as regular as ever…go figure. I think bumping my food up helped a lot. Now my goals are to get my body temps up and get the libido back and hopefully drop some body fat.

    I hope you can find some solutions to your issues. I can only share what I have experienced at this point.
