Many thanks Nicolep! I am looking at further info online at the moment and will be buying the brush, so fingers crossed it’ll work for me too!July 10, 2013 at 4:19 am in reply to: Vaginal Yeast Infection #8088
I would love to know the answer to that myself, just in case it comes back. I used to have chronic yeast infection caused by birth control pill and no carb and no sugar got rid of it, but should it come back, I don’t know what I would do.July 9, 2013 at 5:13 pm in reply to: healthy people on restricted diets and Weston Price – making sense of stuff #7957
excellent summary Sharonimo!July 9, 2013 at 2:31 pm in reply to: Paleo and GAPS experiences please…. #7911
Oh my goodness, sorry everyone for such horrific experiences. Amoeba, your comment made laugh! For me it was wapf that screwed me, you just sort of tend to restrict grains naturally when you imagine all the work involved they recommend for preparing grains!
Anyhow, I never took it too extremely fortunately so I always had my periods. But for me I just always ate very little and never realised how it made me anxious. So to sum it up “not eating turned me into an asshole.” :)
Now that I eat, I’m much nicer to be around. And my husband will have to start eating for heat soon, otherwise he won’t be able to keep up with me. Sorry, too much info. :)July 9, 2013 at 2:13 pm in reply to: What Works? #7905
how about vitamin B, I find that it works for mouth ulcers and stuff relating to any sort of inflammation in the mouth. Normally you’d need 14 days to heal an ulcer, try that with megadosing on vitamin B, and even the cheap stuff will do. You’ll find within 3 days it’s gone.July 9, 2013 at 12:05 pm in reply to: What happens with cellulite when optimal metabolism? #7875
dry brushing? Really, I always thought it sounded too simple to work. How do you do it? Frequency, what sort of brush, etc? thanks! And never heard of sleeping in complete darkness helping cellulite…seriously?July 9, 2013 at 8:21 am in reply to: Is it possible to lose baby weight in a healthy way? #7854
Mangosorbet, btw. I love mango sorbet! I’ll have to make some, or buy some. :) Your name makes me hungry again. lol
The info from Matt is encouraging, I was doing yoga 3x per week but I have just rescheduled to 2, I feel it is too much otherwise. Yes, let’s do it together and moan along the way. :)
I just had 36.4 C this morning and strangely I find that resting increases my temperatures hugely. I can be 36.1 or 36.2 when feeling tired and the I lie down or separate myself from the kids and just resting, not even sleeping and my temperatures are 36.6 or .7 again. It amazes me what happens when I listen to my body and rest rather then keep on going.July 8, 2013 at 3:55 pm in reply to: What happens with cellulite when optimal metabolism? #7755
Very interesting. Thank you! However, at the same time I’m a bit sad, was hoping that it would all magically disappear. :) Oh well, back to endermologie treatments because I’m shallow and refusing to live with it. :)July 8, 2013 at 3:08 pm in reply to: Is it possible to lose baby weight in a healthy way? #7745
Hi mangosorbet, I hear ya. :( I too will probably stick with it and I have already been reading stuff on youreatopia, but what frightens me is that she just want you to stuff your face whether you’re hungry or not, you have to be meeting the daily minimum calories. Matt is more about biofeedback, hungry – eat, not hungry – don’t eat whilst obviously eating sufficient calories. Also youreatopia talks about this as long term thing, like 18 months!! She doesn’t talk about any specific foods for raising metabolism like salt, etc. So I feel or hope that perhaps with Matt it will happen faster? I’m speaking with Matt tomorrow so if I find out anything more specific regarding breastfeeding I will share it here.July 8, 2013 at 12:54 pm in reply to: Is it possible to lose baby weight in a healthy way? #7707
I gained baby weight too. I’m not saying this is a good thing to do but if you want to know what worked for me then here it is.I couldn’t however sustain it because I’m still breastfeeding and it is my back up plan should this fail me or should my husband threaten to divorce me should my weight get astronomical. Simply fruit or a smoothie in the morning, light lunch, a healthy snack in the afternoon and a good satisfying dinner. But no binging. I find that if I cut calories by having light meals and am still eating everything basically then I can cope and sustain it forever. This is basically what I have been doing my whole life anyway, but with babies and trying to sustain this sort of eating whilst breastfeeding, it has backfired and i ended up 10 kg heavier. I wish I just ate rather than analyse my hunger, now I wouldn’t have that problem. My mother never breastfed, however has 4 kids, this is how she eats and it is totally sustainable for her and she is tiny and happy. BUT, she has low temperatures and she feels the cold. So, it’s a choice between a true health or a size. Sometimes I wonder if this whole concept of rrafing and gaining weight backfires because you get so stressed gaining weight, the very same thing that we are trying to avoid? Anyhow, I hope I don’t get crossed off the forum for sharing this!!!July 8, 2013 at 12:34 pm in reply to: Can you be too hot? #7698
I envy you, I wish I had high temperatures, but like you I realised that salt is the most important thing for my temperatures. I don’t ever fancy eating salty things first thing in the morning and so I have to force myself because without it I am starving and cold and shaky, no matter how much I eat. So much for biofeedback! I wish I could just get away with salt in porridge, however I need something really salty like eggs and cheese or sausage or homemade fries, etc.July 8, 2013 at 8:01 am in reply to: what about all these obese people with seemingly no set point?? #7668
possibly, perhaps it just comes down to eat the food, as in whatever, just eat it and don’t be hungry? But if refined foods get you there faster then it may be worthy a consideration…July 8, 2013 at 7:31 am in reply to: what about all these obese people with seemingly no set point?? #7664
I’m not so sure about that… Have you read Matt’s latest two books Eat for Heat and Diet recovery 2 ? He actually puts emphasis on starch, sugar (even white), cheese, normal salt, etc. and plenty of people raise metabolism on these. I think the problem actually may be when one is hesitant to use refined foods and therefore prolongs the process (like what I’m doing) and therefore perhaps undereats which leads to more fat gain than necessary. My understanding is that the longer you are eating excess food in suboptimal metabolism, the more fat gain. But I could be wrong. This just my understanding. Matt, Rob what do you make of that?July 8, 2013 at 4:03 am in reply to: what about all these obese people with seemingly no set point?? #7655
Thanks very much for the links, Rob!
And thank you guys for support. It is really scary gaining weight!
What you have said Cathy is actually what I was thinking. I feel that I tend to restrict my calories and perhaps the longer I drag it out, the more gain and worse it gets. But it is just so HARD to ignore the fat gain!!July 7, 2013 at 12:29 pm in reply to: Sample daily menu #7522
I really struggle first thing in the morning, so the typical breakfast of 2 slices of sourdough bread with jam are not enough for me. However I don’t have time for a cooked breakfast in the morning, so I just eat that plus I’m snacking constantly all morning, literally like every 1/2 – 1 h with foods like fruit yoghurt, handful of corn chips, handful of pretzels, another yoghurt, dried fruit bars. Then lunch I have something simple and easy to make/cook like oatmeal cooked in coconut milk. Then I still need to snack, a big one for me is 3 pm, must have something bit more substantial like sweet biscuits with milk or breakfast cereal with milk. Then evening is usually meat and potatoes or pasta with lost of cheese. Before bedtime I have another snack, maybe a choc. bar or another yoghurt or more bread. I must admit I rely on snacks a lot, just don’t have the time or desire to cook much lately. Cooking dinner is tiring as is with two little kids to look after as well.
