  • Probably not - my lab work looked pretty great. The fatigue is killing me, though. It was so bad today I honestly couldn't keep my eyes open. I always seem to be a bit better by late afternoon, though. I wonder if my body is still adjusting to the sugar / carb intake?
    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

    • Are you shaky a lot? Also, your gut problems are definitely playing a factor, to state the obvious. Stress, and anxiety might be culprits too. Unfortunately, you're not my lab rat, so I can't know exactly what's going on here. You're a weirdo, that's for sure. I can recommend things to stop the fatigue, if you want, but I don't want to cause any further damage like with noopept, tobacco, and other things that you didn't respond well to, and I do. :X

      • I am not shaky. I feel like my energy was pretty good at one point - maybe when I first started upping the fruit / sugar? It's so inconsistent I can't pinpoint what causes it. I'm going to look back at my journal entries tonight and see if I can weed out any patterns.

        Oh stop it.... I thought I told you only to call me that in private...

        And I would probably wind up with Stockholm syndrome and other severe psychological problems if I was your lab rat.

        • Good idea. Let me know what you find.

          So, you'd basically be me? Nothing wrong with that, and straitjackets look good as fashion garments, and it's more comfortable than the metaphorical one.

          • I don't know - my waist is my best feature. To hide it with all those arms..

            • So I just ate some chocolate, and my temp rose to 98.7 (from 98.1) and I'm sweating.

              Or it could be all this talk about straitjackets.

              • They have form fitting straitjackets, I'm sure.

                Chocolate is a pretty potent temperature enhancer. Good fats, theobromine, lots of minerals, and an aphrodisiac.

                • I think I experienced the body temp raise the other night. I've been eating a bit throughout the day but I don't think it raised my temp until I ate more just now. Definitely not something I want to do while it's so damn hot out, though So uncomfortable.

                    Junk food is a huge temperature raiser. HOWEVER, last night I had a significant temperature raise after eating honey dew melon! But it was a nice raise: just felt a warmth spreading through my body and extremities.

                    Hey Derp, how would cut problems affect energy, and what would the significance be in getting the shakes?

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                    • So croissants are pretty gross! I barley ate one before throwing it away. At least I tried something, which is more than what I would have done a few months ago!

                      The ice cream however is delicious! already ate 2 pints.

                        I assume you mean cutting calories? Too low, you feel like shit, <200-500 is ok. Shakes is an indication of that feeling like shit -- low blood sugar.

                          Oops, no that was a typo - meant to say "gut" issues.

                          I got the shakes the other day, but it was cos' of food poisoning.

                          Good for you on another win against orthorexia! I actually have been eating bread quite a bit for the last month. It was just out of convenience, and it doesn't agree with me so I'm not going to eat it anymore, but it's nice to know that I can take or leave things now, based on how they make me feel, instead of on hearsay.

                          And Yeah! That ice cream is fupping good. And only eight ingredients (three of which are sugar)

                          • It would affect it a lot, serotonin comes to mind.

                              Thanks . I've been eating a fair bit of processed junk for a few month, but always felt really bad about it. Now, I don't really care that much because I'm treating this whole thing as a recovery. (Matt Stone guided)

                              I feel some of the "negatives" about challenging my body; low energy, brain fog and I've gained 4lbs - straight to my stomach! I'm trying not to obsess about the weight (I'm slim anyway) and hope that eventually it will just go to other places than my stomach. Weigh gain is, according to Stone, most common for 1-2 weeks, up to a few months though.

                              I need more ice cream now! Peaches and ice cream for breakfast are amazing.

                              • Does anybody have suggestions for constipation? I hoped that eating over 4000 calories and more food would mean I empty more/faster. So far, this has not been the case. In the past 4 days (since properly doing RRARF) I've gone almost once per day with a few tiny pellet like stools. (I think we are all past the grossness of this kind of talk!)

                                I really don't want to take some laxative pharmaceutical, but I think most of bloat/large stomach is coming from not passing and waste. Normally this isn't quite as much as a problem, but I've essentially doubled my caloric intake and there's no room for more food!

                                Temps haven't really improved yet although on one occasion I had a high of 36.9C (98.4F).
