      Tried basic primal and almost everything else in pursuit of IBS control, mood stability, and weight loss.

            I can't work out how to multi-quote on the new app,so I'll have to make multiple posts sorry.

            Hi NW! Good to see you're still around, how's things? The pup is definitely primal, he eats a raw diet of meat, organs, fruits and green vegetables. He also occasionally gets a carob and coconut oil treat when he's been good.

              Hi Jac, they ARE amazing, I'm already thinking about getting another one. I'll check out your journal and see what you're up to. Good luck with the hCG, hopefully you have better success than I did.

                  Hey Suse, good to see things haven't changed! Maybe your version of primal is just a bit different to everyone else's. You're brilliant at Suse-inspired primal.

                  Peat-inspired means that I'm eating to raise the metabolic rate. That is the foundation of Peat's work, everything else is customisable, to a point. Some things are the same - organ meats, bone broth, fruit, dairy products. The main difference is the ratios, eating for metabolic health means getting the majority of your calories from carbs, specifically sugars, so lots of fruit mostly. Although Peat doesn't have a problem with sugar, he always says that sugars should come from fruit preferably.
                  What this means for me is that I get most of my protein from dairy and bone broth and I eat a lot less meat. I don't eat much starch but I eat a LOT of fruit. I also use honey in my coffee and I tend to keep fat relatively low - what I do eat is saturated, mostly butter and coconut oil.

                    Things have been fairly good, less so very recently, but overall pretty awesome. I got married this summer

                      I hope the recent not-so-good thing isn't too bad.

                          Thanks GS, how's things with you? I must get round to everyone's journals and catch up on the latest. It's my day off tomorrow so I'll have a go then.

                          • Hi Em, I just read your post in Canio's journal that you've healed your thyroid by using Peat's protocol. I have Hashimoto's and am trying to improve my thyroid. I'm in the middle of a month of autoimmune protocol but have been trying to incorporate some Peat things into my diet. So far I've added gelatin (though probably not enough), orange juice and more fruit. I would like to eventually include dairy. I have bone broth every day. Do you think you could give me some pointers? Like how much fruit and gelatin you have daily?

                            I am so impressed that you are off thyroid meds, I didn't realize the thyroid could be thoroughly healed! At the moment I am taking so many meds and supplements it's quite a chore.

                              Hi there! I don't know if 'healed' is necessarily the word to use. In remission probably works a little better. This was proved to me when, about a year and a half ago in a fit of madness, I decided to try doing low-carb again to lose some weight and ALL my symptoms came rushing back with a vengeance, it took me another six months to get over that 4 weeks of idiocy!

                              First up, I don't have Hashi's. I was tested for antibodies and I was under the threshold. Secondly Peat doesn't really believe in Hashi's, but that's something you might want to read up on through his articles as, given it's not my issue, I didn't explore too much. My version of hypothyroidism was due mainly to poor liver function, brought about by severe calorie and carbohydrate restriction. I've always had plenty of T4, but my conversion to T3 was atrocious. My TSH consequently was also too high.

                              Keeping in mind that this has taken me 2 years (I started November 2011), my average daily diet looks something like this:

                              On awakening: salt and lemon juice in a glass of water, followed by a large mug of cafe latte (skim milk) made with a tablespoon of gelatine and honey (when I say coffee from now, this is what I mean)

                              Breakfast: coffee

                              Mid-morning: smoothie made with skim milk, collagen hydrolysate, lots of fruit, an egg yolk and a dollop of honey. A raw carrot (this is actually really important)

                              Lunch: usually a cottage cheese based salad made with fruit-veggies (cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, olives, etc). Sometimes a potato salad made with HB eggs and an MCT oil based dressing. Fruit - a bunch of grapes, some peaches, cherries, etc. whatever's in season.

                              Mid-afternoon: coffee, maybe a slice of Gouda and some Medjool dates if I'm hungry

                              Dinner: stew made from gelatinous cuts of beef or lamb (shanks, osso buck, oxtail, shoulder, etc) or a stuffed jacket potato or a mixed seafood salad. Basically dinner will be when I eat the majority of my fat calories (although they are kept under 60g all day). I will also eat some fruit again, sometimes chocolate (my boyfriend just bought me a bunch of truffles from the Lindt factory in Sydney ).

                              Throughout the day: I carry a one litre bottle at work and it has a 50/50 juice (OJ, lychee, guava) to sparkling water mix in it that I sip throughout the day. I also add a pinch of salt to it. If I feel any symptoms of low thyroid through the day, I need salt, every time. I've actually encapsulated some salt in gelatine capsules for those times I can't eat and I need some.

                              I sometimes eat more earlier in the day. I work in an operating theatre and if my first case is going to be a five hour spinal fusion, then I eat first. Sometimes I'm hungrier than others and I eat more, I've really learned a lot about listening to my body.

                              My macros work out to be approximately 50% carbs, 30% protein and 20% fat and I eat about 2800-3000 calories a day. When I communicated with Peat about my issues, the main things he suggested were the raw carrot to assist with healthy bowel movements and to clear endotoxin (I used to have terrible constipation due to my hypothyroidism), a good amount of protein daily from dairy, seafood and gelatine, liver once a week and to make carbs from fruit and honey (he added "if not allergic" to that advice). He also had me take small amounts (like 5-6 mcg) of T3 through the day with meals. He also had me monitor my temps and pulse, my temps used to be 35.9 - 36.2 and pulse rarely got above 60bpm. My temps are still variable but generally sit between 36.6 -37.2 now. Pulse is more around 70bpm.

                              Anyway, I hope some of this is helpful. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

                              • Em, if you are taking 5-6 mcg T3 multiple times a day how many total mcg are you getting each day?
