    It must be Min-Col. I am a former student of RBTI.

    How is your thyroid and iodine levels? Over 90% of people in the US are deficient in iodine. Your low metabolism rate could be due to this. All the food in the world won’t fix it unless you are eating tons of sushi which is high in iodine. I had to take Lugols iodine and thyroid extract for optimum rate.

    Perhaps you need a salty or sweet snack before bed. You could experiment by taking your thyroid medicine 1/2 hour before bedtime so you have a higher blood level upon awaking, or take half a dose twice a day, morning and night. Just a thought.

    Remember you need a balance of the stress S’s. Perhaps you need more of starch, sugar or sat. fat. Listen to your body as Matt says. If you are not craving salt cut back. Also most people are iodine deficient which can impair thyroid function. I take Lugols iodine daily. It is needed just to detox all the fluoride and bromine and chlorine toxicity in our bodies.

    Your satiety is due to your fat content. All fats do that. But it is still better to use olive oil, coconut oil and butter and the saturated fats in meat. People are ingesting too much omega 6 nowadays, plus they quickly go rancid and produce free radicals in the body.

    If you are having difficulty getting your temp up it could be an iodine deficiency. I take Lugols solution and it really helps. If that is not enough than I would suspect a low functioning thyroid. I also have been taking a thyroid extract from Swansons, but since I started exercising I have been able to cut back. I also recommend the Exergen temporal thermometer. I never had much success with oral temps. You can now get one at Walmart. It is a great investment.

    Read the book “Body by Science” to get the details, recommended by Matt. In a nut shell start with the Big 5 exercise, overhead press, chest press, pull downs, pull backs (rowing), and leg press. Do the exercises slowly, approximately 10 seconds up and 10 sec down or so you can do them smoothly without shaking. Shoot for approx. 90 sec or so for each exercise. As you can see you only need to do 4-6 reps for each exercise. The key is to reach muscle failure in that time period,where you cannot do another rep but try to do 1 more anyways with resistance even if you can’t move the resistance. Only need to exercise once a week. After about 3 months you may need to increase the interval gradually to allow the muscles to recover fully. You may get to the point where you only exercise once a month, believe it on not. I purchased the ebook at Amazon.com for $9.99. Great investment. This method is backed up by tons of research. I don’t know why people still want to do 3 sets of 10-15 reps when the research doesn’t support it. Also the same with running. Short duration, high intensity is the way to go.
