    How long was it missing for? How long did it take you to get it back?

      I don't know, my period was very irregular. It would go missing for several months, then come back with a crazy schedule, either very strong or very weak, then it would go missing again.


      When I started this diet, I was bleeding a little every day, like a few drops. It normalised 2-3 months later.

          Do you count calories? Low-calorie diets and being underweight cause loss of period.

            I've never counted calories and I was never on low fat diets for longer than a month(?). I have PCOS and my body is screwed up due to antibiotic use, plus I haven't exercised for 5 years.

            Pick your favourite.

              Then give yourself a little more time. I only have PCOS.

                Reason I asked about the real food is that I feel that it is the most important aspect of the diet aspect of our lifestyle - even though vegetarian/vegan is silly, IMO, it can be healthier than SAD if it's done with real food (instead of tofu and other ridiculous shite) in mind.


                Did you eat a lot of soy/products with soy in your past life?


                In your low-carb/non-low-fat diet cycles, were you eating a lot of fat, and what kinds?


                Sorry to be so nosey, just wondering about your dieting specifics before coming here, so there's something to compare to when you're a few months in. PCOS and acne, and many other issues, I feel are issues of diet, and especially the poisons we are fed via "food" and "medicine".


                And yes, I am crazy.

                  <grin> NoSalad ----


                  I&#39;m not a doctor, or anything professional except a piano tuner!


                  This is an effect I have (LOL). I come across as some kind of silly authority, or something.


                  I suppose it comes about from a lifetime of trying to figure out why my efforts to be well, slender, and healthy have been so frustrating and ineffective. I read a lot, I theorize all the time, and I write a lot every day. After decades go by, it all adds up. I do have a lot of background in many subjects, some by direct experience, but none backed up by rigorous research from original sources. I love to swim in ideas and theories, and to see connections.


                  I do try to stick to "facts" which seem to be valid, from sources I trust, or especially from my own experience trying something which worked. Other times I pick up odds and ends from here or there. For instance, that bit about brains finishing their "myelinizing" and thus working better after age 25 came from Dr. Daniel G. Amen, who specializes in brain science and brain scanning. I caught him first on a couple of PBS documentaries, and was impressed, so I ordered his books. I haven&#39;t found him coming out with farfetched stuff yet. He seems very well-grounded, and some of his observations ring true to me, explaining things I&#39;ve noticed but not understood.


                  Anyway, please realize that while I try to share ideas which I do believe in and have considered quite carefully, they have not met any particular standard, like peer-reviewed articles, or something. (Though a lot of tripe sometimes seems to get past peer-reviews, or we wouldn&#39;t be saddled with the cholesterol myths.)


                  The silliest event this air of authority led to was in a community college art class about twenty years ago. The instructor was kind of a rough diamond, who tended to be pretty severe and authoritarian at times (though fun and original other times ...) He sometimes was out of the classroom, and other students got the habit of asking me exactly what he meant when he gave this or that assignment ... he could be pretty heavy if he thought someone was ignoring what he had said. So of course I explained -- after all, I DID understand what he had said, and they obviously didn&#39;t. And one day a fellow student asked me about the assignment while the teacher was still in the room ..... <BIG GUFFAW>

                    I know you&#39;ve not been on here for long but you are what made me sign up and start taking myself and my health seriously. So thank you.

                      hey NoSalad,


                      I&#39;m 5&#39;2&#39;&#39; and used to weigh 150 average, 155 was the most. I would really notice the fat on my body in photos and it made me so upset. I&#39;m pretty curvy and have that hourglass thing going on so it just made it worse. I have been trying to follow the primal diet. I weigh about 141 now and gosh 9 pounds has made such a difference. My goal weight is 130. My face looks a whole lot different. Instead of looking round girlish, it now has a more womanly shape. I&#39;m so envious of my boyfriend who has (almost) effortlessly gone from 215 to 170. He looks like a whole new man. He changed his diet dramatically and started cycling. I wish the weight would fall off of me like it did on him.

                        Aaron, I have always been intuitively &#39;smart&#39; enough to stay away from soy. Tofu, has never (ever...) seemed the least bit appealing to me. Even when I binged I&#39;d go for the real thing than some pathetic substitute.

                        The diets I was more serious about were the Wai diet (nothing cooked) and Low-carb. The first advocated consuming &#39;real&#39; foods like fruits, oils, some vegetables and raw protein like nuts, egg yolks and sashimi. It wasn&#39;t unhealthy, just... intolerable :]

                        Though when I read the premise a second time (after being aware of PB) I did come across alarming &#39;advice&#39; such as "putting sugar into your juices" and "juicing instead of blending", not to mention eating 4.4LB of fruits ever day and no vegetables. There was constant sugar-brainwash and not even a distinction between white sugar and fruit sugar.

                        But you are right, my parents have moved around a lot and each time I would be introduced to more processed food. My downfall was when I started dating and got introduced to Chinese, Italian and Maki roles :P

                        And I had acne since I was probably 13, and have been fed many drugs that have only made me develop PCOS, more severe acne and food intolerances.

                        Your nosiness is greatly appreciated :]


                        PDL, I wish I could play piano! I started learning guitar today and I regret not doing it sooner, not to mention being able to afford a tutor


                        Sophia, aaaaaw! That is the sweetest thing I&#39;ve ever hoped to hear! I hope you and I will be healthy and fit in no time! You can always count on me for support on your journey!


                        Underwaterer, don&#39;t sell yourself short, 9 pounds is an incredible achievement! And men, those bastards, lose weight faster because they have more muscle mass; but ask yourself this: do they looks as good as we do naked? I think not :] Keep on doing what you&#39;re doing, it&#39;s obviously working! And thank you for telling me this, you have inspired me a little

                          PiBdate:


                          Today was DE DAY. And it was quite productive.

                          I&#39;ve done my 30 minute workout, and you should consider yourself lucky for not witnessing such an awkward, kama-sutra-like presentation.

                          Then I cleaned, and it took me about an hour; I was a lot more sweaty and sore after cleaning than after my workout.

                          Can you believe it I haven&#39;t gotten off my ass for 5 years? For shame!

                          I feel like my posture is all wrong and either I can&#39;t do an exercise or it seems too easy or awkward. Hopefully I&#39;ll get the hang of it.


                          My starting weight is 147 (weird, less than I expected. must be water weight). And my body fat% is 27, which isn&#39;t as horrible as I expected.


                          I had a strawberry-blubbery smoothie for breakfast with 3-4 tbsp. of oil (I didn&#39;t have coconut milk

                          and it was a serious YUM.

                          Then I had 2 wild pacific salmon pieces with 5 asparagus thingamajigs (I&#39;d make a very articulate creative writing student). And it was a less of a YUM, but it was serious as well (see what I mean?).


                          I learned some French ("C&#39;est film est nul!"/ "La fenetre est ouverete"). Be proud.

                          I&#39;ve played guitar and have discovered I have a problem reciting the alphabet backwards while playing the scales >< damnit. I tried to play Ode to Joy but got as far as the third bar...

                          My fingers has an OUCH!


                          I took Vit.D 5,000IU, Multivit, EstroSense (supposedly to balance out my raging hormones) and Women&#39;s Probiotics.


                          I&#39;m a good girl! :] Mark will be proud. So should you!

                              Awesome first day. Good job hammering out a workout- body awareness comes quickly with effort, so things will feel less awkward in no time. And numbers and bf% are never as &#39;horrible&#39; as we tend to believe- just means there&#39;s more leeway for change, and it&#39;ll feel great when you see those changes quickly.


                              Just wondering if you are logging your macronutrient %? You&#39;ve inspired me to kick my ass into gear and evaluate my goals again. The olympics were here for a few weeks, and half my city is hungover. Time to own it, and we&#39;ll be feeling great just in time for summer. Keep at it!


                              @pianoDL: thanks for the reminder on the brain. I&#39;ve known this and cannot wait till 25. Guess i&#39;ll ride out this wave of internal awkwardness a little longer.

                                Merci petit pois. Si tu as des problemes avec ton francais ou quel-que chose que tu voulais dire mais ne sait pas comment le dire tu peux toujour m&#39;appeller pour des conseils.


                                Translation:

                                Thank you pea. If you have any problems with French or if there&#39;s something you would like to know how to say you can always turn to me and I&#39;ll advise you the best I can.


                                I lived in a French speaking country once upon a time and still remember most of it. I do love the Quebecois when they speak. Their As are beautiful.


                                Good going on your first day!!
