    2 months in, still doing well. I’m exercising more and feeling my body get stronger but after 20 years of being a dieter it’s hard to lose the weight slow. It’s almost a daily battle not to jump on a diet (I’m an educator so I don’t work in the summer) but I’m sticking with it.

    I am struggling too… I’m on week 6 and the weight isn’t stopping. I’m not weighing myself but my “big” clothes are getting tight. And I was about 250 when I started so it’s hard to keep trusting this. my temps are up though and I feel good (other than the fat) so I’m just hoping I’m getting to the light and tunnel moment soon.

    Whenever I eat less my temps drop right back down so I’m just hanging in chubby limbo hoping Matt’s theories work for me.

    I’ll keep in touch!

    So far so good. I went from taking 60 mg of Ritalin and am now down to 30 now that I’m actually eating carbs, but no real change in weight, but my body is changing for the better.

    Why not make it with whole milk?

    Well I can answer my own question now, in case future posters have it. I started doing the biggest loser 8 minute workouts. My temp did drop a little, but I feel great. It’s a short yet still hard working exercise for people who aren’t super active but want to get back into working out.

    I’m an educator and the only thing that significantly impacts IQ is traumatic brain injury or starvation. Starvation can result in about a 15 point drop (one standard deviation), and that can be changed back by nourishing the person. There is a lot of misinformation out there about how food affects the brain. Typically the only thing that affects it is lack of food or if you have some type of allergy to a specific food.

    Overeaters anonymous and a therapist who tried to put us on a no sugar no flour all vegan diet…. The idea was to replace food with god.
