    yesterday...so it's been two full days of tons of energy. i don't really have a libido, but i really haven't since i was 18. my tummy is still poochy...but perhaps pregnancy puffed it out, and only exercise will help bring it down now...?

    not quite sure if i should wait for these two symptoms to clear up, or just start on the leptin sensitive diet and get exercising?

    unfortunately the UTI symptoms came back yet again. it's been like this since christmas. low-grade burning only for a few hours every day or two. i'm not having to pee all the time. no yeast that i can see. i wonder if it's even a uti or something else? i've been going panty free and wearing skirts as much as possible...although riding my bicycle sometimes seems like it might be a cause. sigh.

    anyway...so excited for the ENERGY!!! WOOHOO!

      Week 2, Day 5

      Still feel great. Amazed at how wonderfully I sleep now. Just like I did as a child and in my twenties. I lay down to sleep, and when I come to, it's morning! I'm really wondering if I'm leptin sensitive now. Especially after doing low carb GAPS and IFing for so long...I'll wait till I find an exercise place to decide to stop this reset. Any feedback or thoughts welcome!

      - Breakfast w/ 50gm of protein? yes, 35g wild white fish, two eggs

      - Breakfast w/i 30m of rising? yes, 7 to 7 30 am

      - 5+ hrs between Breakfast and Lunch? yes, 1pm broth and raw liver and ghee

      - 5+ hrs between Lunch and Dinner? yes, 6 15p roast chicken and avocado, green salad

      - No snacking? check

      - exposure to morning sun? yes

          Wow - you could be a record case of fast LR, lol. Have you checked dr. k's blog for the signs off ls? Sleep, warmth, energy, no hunger or cravings... He suggests HIIT (interval training) & sprints, lifting heavy to start with. I think you s hould post Your (very brief) case history on the mega threadd and get some feedback there.

            yes, i have checked dr. k's blog. i still have cold hands and feet, but the sleep is perfect, the energy is great, really everything else except libido. Although once I get started being intimate, everything is fantastic. I just don't ever feel the need to initiate. great idea to post on the mega thread. i'll look for it now.

            thank you! so appreciate your feedback.

                    Week 3, Day 2

                    I ended up having a crazy 2 hour nap today. Perhaps because I only got 7.5 hours of sleep instead of 9. Perhaps because I had some goat kefir, which makes me tired. In any case, it was a beautiful sleep!

                    Week 3, Day 2

                    - Breakfast w/ 50gm of protein? yes, can of wild salmon, pickle

                    - Breakfast w/i 30m of rising? yes, 7 to 7 30 am

                    - 5+ hrs between Breakfast and Lunch? yes, 12p three eggs and 2 bacon

                    - 5+ hrs between Lunch and Dinner? yes, 7p beef brisket
                    - No snacking? check

                    - exposure to morning sun? yes

                    - darkening the house at sunset? yes

                      I thought lentils were considered starchy. No?

                        I don't think lentils are on the reset. Can't say whether one serving, once, will do much to set anyone back or not. I tend to think not, and my experience tends to say not, so far as the reset itself goes, but it would set back my gut recovery a few days.

                          Yeah...no more lentils for me. They also gave me a ton of gas!

                          Thanks for your feedback. Very helpful.

                            I have a crossfit appointment tomorrow and am officially switching to the Leptin Sensitive diet!

                            This success story is my inspiration - I don't want to become that muscular, but I do want to lose the pudge and get lean. She inspires me because she's older and can still do it, and because she starts out with not much weight to lose, just pudge, which is the boat I'm in.
                            http://www.marksdailyapple.com/a-pri...#axzz1kUiTH1X1

                            Here is my new daily template. Let me know if you have comments, or suggestions!

                            Leptin Sensitive Diet

                            BREAKFAST: Upon rising within one hour eat 50% of your daily carbs (~26g) with 25 grams of protein and 20-30 grams of fats?

                            Keep as active as possible during light hours (stand not sit, use stairs not elevators, walk/ bike as much as possible)?

                            LUNCH: Eat 25% of remaining carbs (~7g), or skip and eat it with dinner?

                            Work out between 1p and 5p?

                            DINNER:
                            Eat up to 1 hour after exercise?
                            Eat remaining carbs (~19g), 25g - 75g protein, and CCK fats (coco oil, butter, lard)?
                            Complete dinner by 7p, and at least 4 hours before bed?

                            Take Vit D and maintain optimal levels?

                              didn't have time to figure out numbers of grams of carbs because i had a southern chicken soup with lots of veggies. i threw in about 15g of shrimp, too. i got hungry at 10:30am

                              Eat 25% of remaining carbs (~7g), or skip and eat it with dinner? yes, no lunch today.

                              Work out between 1p and 5p?

                                I will totally be following you on this! Great summary of the post-reset tenets. I wanna know if you have success keeping cravings/munchies away on the lower breakfast protein. I hope so!
