    Feeling very liverish myself, especially after trying to up carbs further, then I read a choline article link from a blogpost comment recently, not sure from who, but he/she did me a favour because I remembered eggs, added them back in, and felt a lot better tho not entirely. also shoulder pain – gall bladder symptom if I recall?

    MikeJ, I’m not as unusual as you but still having lots of trouble – lots. Always seem to be the exception to the rule. To sum up what I would say is – it’s always worth experimenting even if it sounds odd or pointless or so close to something you know doesn’t work that it doesn’t have a chance. E.g. coffee normally makes me wired, but brewed with milk and with a bit of sugar as per DR2, it works a treat for me with PMS symptoms. The other thing I would say is boy oh boy does it take time. 2 years in I am getting some real results, a few, slowly, but very importantly they are significant, and also not subjective, e.g. blood sugar in the past month or two has gone from over 100 to 80, with great glucose clearance.

    I’d really, really like to know too. It would explain the vicious circle of weight gain and the ‘closed gate’ to losing the weight again. I believe I have symptoms of estrogen overload – PMS, sometimes a double period, and alternating between good patches and bad, during which I feel liverish, bloated, dull, depressed, exercise averse, get fatter esp on the stomach, dull headaches, feel just plain sick. I just know that if I can stop these cycles I’ll make progress with health and weight loss. Trouble is everything I try, intuitively or as a result of reading, does not help. I’m in a bad patch now (directly after my period strangely enough) and trying to turn it around not endlessly cycle. But everything I do makes me feel worse. This time I listened to my body and for the past few days ate the fruit I was craving(OJ and papaya mostly) had the nap I thought might help my low energy, then had 30g gelatine in a hot drink with salt (as per my reading not craving), and the end result is I feel much much worse today. Like some dodgy ‘detox’. It’s like any change I make to try feel better, makes me worse. I used to get ‘detox’ symptoms when I ‘detoxed’ but now I get them whenever I make a change to anything I’m doing, like going higher carb (I stopped that, wow it so did not work); trying to sort out these estorgen symptoms; having more fruit because I crave it, all of a sudden. I recently restarted an egg a day after someone left a link to a choline article in the comments of a recent blog post (thanks whoever it was) and that helped A LOT with the liverish nauseated dull headache and hungover feeling, but it’s all back today. as a regular thing, Progesterone cream I know has a bad rep but I find it helps a lot – usually. Coffee made with milk and sugar helps the breast tenderness a lot. Sorry for being disordered scattered and incoherent – but I just know this is key, so I second the above request – anyone shed some light?

    Slightly but not entirely OT – @Rob, @I am Beth, @Kendahl especially, please please please start a thread on weight loss experiences following the gokaleo approach you’re all talking about (I know it’s on your site Kendahl, and very, very cool too, congrats – but bring it over here please!).
    I’m doing the same reading and following the same approach. I’m in a similar place with a similar history. Seems like a few people here have found they get trapped after normalizing metabolism, but stay stuck not able to lose weight, perhaps due to what Amber mentions – inflammation and oestrogen from excess fat tissue. Left stuck suffering with inflammation issues, injuries, adrenal issues, oestrogen excess – (about covers me I think!) and are trying with all their reading to put it together in such a way that this particular vicious cycle can be broken.
    I like what Matt says about it being like tanning without getting sunburned – cautiously working within that ‘envelope’ of health and trying to expand it, mindful always of our adrenal and other backlashes! Aiming primarily to feel better, stronger, not 99 – and weight loss would be nice too!
    ‘Cos I think it’s groundbreaking stuff, pioneering stuff. And these forums could really help us crack it!
    And here’s why what I say is not totally OT – we’re feeling our way with this, tons of conflicting confusing info, individual differences in how we respond to stuff, and it would be nice not to have the already murky waters muddied further!
