  • Keep feeling nauseous and tired?

    I'm on the 2nd day of the leptin reset. I had been feeling extremely nauseous lately, any time of day or night even if I eat or don't eat. Started feeling nauseous again a few mins ago, I have no idea why. I was also extremely sleepy today.
    Honestly, this nausea is making me want to eat whatever I want to see if it helps me feel better.
    I have been craving sweets at night which is why I decided to try the leptin reset. I was eating primally before this so I'm not sure why I'm so tired all of a sudden.
    I'm not pregnant.
    My stats: 4'9", 160pounds, was hoping to lose at least 40 pounds but I don't have a goal date since I've been losing weight extremely slowly - SO slowly that it doesn't seem to matter what I eat or do for exercise, the fat is just being stubborn apparently. I was really hoping doing Atkins then primal then the leptin reset would make me lose weight faster but we'll see how the reset goes.
    breakfast yesterday - reset day 1 was a 4 egg omelette with steak in it. I could barely eat half of it, I actually felt so sick I wanted to stop eating, not sure if it was from eating too much?
    Ended up not eating until dinner I think because I just don't think about eating and whenever I do feel hungry, I drink water first because I've also been dehydrated lately for some reason, and then eat if I'm still hungry.Dinner last night was chili with veal, ground turkey, steak, and bell peppers in it (one word. AWESOME.). I had a small bowl and felt full, really ate it just to try it.
    breakfast today:leftover chili with 4 over easy eggs on top - freakin delicious but was really hard to eat it all. felt sick after eating it, like i ate too much at once.

    So I don't know if I'm supposed to be feeling all this? Anyone else try the reset with similar effects? I don't like eating so much in the morning, it's been a challenge to eat within 30 mins of waking since I always tend to the baby first. Today I felt hungry so I had a high fat smoothie, shoulda put eggs in it but totally spaced it =(

    So if anyone could give some insight, it would be really helpful. I've been doing primal for a few months now but I really don't feel any better than when I started. I'm still exhausted, still fat but losing extremely slowly like way slower than I have ever heard of on primal, still don't sleep well. Starting to think I should just stop eating since I'm hating food and all that goes with it like cooking. Ugg. It all feels like one huge chore to me. I almost have a feeling like just eating vegetables would make me feel better, but the big ass breakfast is really getting to me already. Like way too much at once

    By the way, I really think the only reason I lost weight recently was because of SakuraCon where I would walk all day and barely ate anything. Now, back to real life, I don't have the time to just dedicate to walking.

      I am not convinced about the reset, forcing yourself to eat just seems so wrong to me. I spent many years doing this, and now if I don't need to eat I don't.
      I am guessing its because you are just too full? But someone else may have another useful suggestion.
      Good luck with it all

        My opinion why you're feeling terrible - Because you're taking a gamble with you're health experimenting with a Jack kruse inspired zero carb pseudo-diet. I would suggest going back to a more balanced and flexible primal diet.

              I took a pregnancy test the other day to be sure, but it said negative. Not as accurate when I hear stories about tests coming up negative when they really were pregnant lol It would be quite the blessing but I don't think I can emotionally handle my weight and 2 babies lol
              I wanted to let everyone know that I have lost inches. Not so much weight, but definitely inches. Last time I measured was in March some time and my bust was 43 and my waist was 37 now my bust is 40.5 and my waist is 35! Hip measurement hasn't changed, but I know my butt must be getting smaller because all of my pants are really baggy in the back lol

                dont worry about the scales then the same thing is happening to me.
                But feeling sick and tired is a concern. Id just eat when hungry. If you can't eat more don't force yourself, and see if that helps

                  This...
                  You are 4'9"... I don't care what Kruse says, YOU don't need to force down the same breakfast as someone a foot taller. EVER. For any reason.
                  Eat until you are satisfied. If the large protein breakfast works once you back off of the amount a bit, great. Or you can just cill and IF lake many others here do by skipping breakfast and/or lunch (IF/when it is comfortable to do so) and eat a good sized early dinner.

                  IMO making yourself sick with food is 100% the opposite of what Primal is about. Eat healthy foods... I lose weight like cold molasses flows too. I didn't gain it fast, I'm OK with losing it slow too. It's a journey, not a destination.

                    Agreed, you shouldn't be feeling sick and with a new baby you shouldn't need to be worrying about that on top of everything else. You may want to read - She-groks only cuz its different for us and see you aren't alone. Dr Kruse leptin reset (in my humble opinion) is really aimed at obese people whos bodies are so screwed they don't recognise the hormones they are supposed to and I don't see too much of a difference between that and Atkins diet to be honest and I don't think it works for women too well.

                    You should feel invigorated and energetic and hungry naturally, not forcing food down your throat because someone says so! I know its frustrating when you are trying to loose baby weight, you don't say how old baby is? but if you are still breast feeding your body may be more resistant to holding onto weight? it took me a about 6 months to get back to pre-pregnancy weight and unlike people kept telling me, my weight didn't 'melt away' because I was breast feeding either!

                    Give yourself some time, as Cori93437 says its a journey and for each of us its different. The most important thing is your health and that is what the Primal diet is about, for most people coming off the SAD they do lose weight but for some who probably ate 'healthy' prior to Primal, the weight doesn't just 'slip off' at all.

                    If you are craving sweet things in the evening and I do, depending on what time of the month it is, then eat something primal, there are a lot of good recipes in the recipe section, it will take a while for your sweet tooth to subside and sometimes you just need to tough that one out!

                        i really thought the reset would work for me because i had all the signs of leptin insensitivity, especially cravings sweets at night. Atkins did absolutely nothing for me, and I was really hoping primal would do more, but honestly it just looks like i can eat whatever i want as long as i burn a shit ton of calories. it seems nutrition doesn't matter so much to my body as exercise does.
                        I've also been feeling extremely thirsty lately but having all that food makes not want to ingest anything else, even water. Like if I put anything more into my stomach I'd throw it all up. i do not like that feeling.
                        The baby will be a year old on the 28th so he's not exactly a baby anymore, but he's still so tiny. I wasn't able to breastfeed, I could only produce up to an ounce and a half from both breasts, and my son definitely needed more than that. I really think that implanon hindered the amount too, and maybe I just didn't have enough mammory glands this time around. i did have implanon taken out though a few months ago and felt really great at first then it went downhill again.depressed.angry.tired.
                        my husband keeps telling me i'm slimming down, so my waist seems to be getting smaller, but i thought i'd lose more in my arms too *shrug*
                        back in high school, i lost 40pounds in 9-10 months and i was eating what i wanted - smaller portions but whatever i wanted but also walking to and from school - a 3mi trek both ways - so having the time to dedicate to 6 miles of walking... it just really seems like my body won't care what i eat it just wants way more exercise than everyone else.
                        I've been feeling sluggish and gross lately, and bloated so I'm going to eat less at one sitting because eating that much food to me is just... it makes me feel icky
                        i've been craving fruit all the time so i'm really thinking about just eating fruits and veggies. there was a time in my life where i ate nothing but fruit - almonds here&there - and got really skinny. that skinny would be awesome again but produce costs so much and i do enjoy eating things like cream in my tea and bacon every now&then.
                        i'm wondering if low carb really isn't what my body's into? i end up craving sweets so bad that i binge. i haven't been beinging lately i just get mad when i can't have something that sounds so good lol
                        it's not TOM but ive been extremely aggravated and depressed lately. nothing's really enjoyable.

                          You could try the spirit of the Leptin reset rather than the law. For instance, eat a high protein breakfast, but don't try to make it huge and early. His theory is based on resetting your circadian rhythm, so try to get to bed at a reasonable hour. Don't eat between meals, but don't feel too compelled to eat meals you don't want, either. Remember, after dinner is between meals.

                            I also wanted to say that I am hungry this morning, been drinking water first, and I thought about what to eat and the thought of food made me nauseous. So I'm just going to have leftover chili. It's delicious. But no added protein to see how it makes me feel.
                            I think that eating as much as 50g of protein in the morning is making my body work so hard that i feel like i don't want to do anything else

                              I usually wake up 8 or 9 lately it's been 7 i think because the baby wakes up and gets mad but then goes back to sleep, but i don't have that ability. Sometimes i'll take a nap with my son during the day but usually go to bed around 12 or 1. I enjoy staying up late with my husband. He's a night owl and I feel like since i'm up so early with the baby, i barely get to see my hubby.
                              To me, it doesn't matter if I stay up that late, I still feel the same no matter what amount of sleep I get. I got 4 hours one night and it really didn't feel any different than 8. sometimes i think i might run better on less sleep than the norm of 7-8 hours but definitely groggy if i sleep too much like 12, which only happens when i'm REALLY sick, otherwise it is impossible lol
