  • Calee, I have found that when I go off my SLD and eat stoopid stuff and on top of that stop the oil for a couple of days, I get a headache for a day or so. It almost feels like a hangover. Now, I am only speaking of the theory I came up with. Have you eaten a lot less? It's similar to when I did my first W30.

    • OG, my eating has been a bit whacked the last few days. Mostly just a bit of wheat. Everything else the same. I think I've eaten about the same amount. After taking 1T of coconut oil this morning, I developed a headache and got very tired for no apparent reason. Yes, it felt like a hangover! I have not had alcohol since before May 1st. It took into the afternoon to reclaim my energy.

      I guess there would be no downside to experiencing this tiredness at nite. I'm taking some coconut oil with me on my trip tomorrow. I will do an evening dose unless I get a Reaction tonight.

      Thanks for helping me. How are you doing!

      • Calee, I had a few days off SLD. Yesterday, I got back on track. I didn't want to spend two days in the bathroom, so I did mostly ELOO with a smidge of MCT. Then today, I went to straight MTC. Blurgh. Not good. Many trips to the bathroom and I feel week. Tomorrow, I will go to straight ELOO.

        Oh, that is another thing. CO is 93% MTC. Maybe you are reacting to that.

        • With MCT I am in the bathroom All.Day.Long. It's violent. I think I have read that people get used to the MCT. They get a tolerance to it. ARG. I don't think a business trip is. Great place to experiment. Definitely no MCT for me.

          • No Calee, living in the bathroom on a trip of any kind would be sucky...and CO is mostly MTC. You saw that right? I am thinking you should take some ELOO with you and back off the other stuff until you get back. Violent is a good word for it. AND..I wish I had a gatorade of all things. I may have a mug of broth and add some salt.

            • I slept just fine after an evening shot of coconut oil. I did however wake with a touch of a headache. I'm willing to keep trying to see if I adjust to it.

              • I was fine after my nice salty broth last night. I had half ELOO & half MTC and feel fine. Phew! I had a delightful bowl of Clothes Make The Girl's silky zucchini soup with caramelized onions and mushrooms and some wonderful fruit. So good and no tummy troubles.

                • I ended up with a bit of tummy distress on Sunday and decided to leave the oil at home. I will delve into the experiment and give it an honest go of it on Thursday.

                  • Hi girls,

                    Just wanted to pop in and say hello.

                    Still doing SLD.

                    Had a couple of rough days whereupon I basically ate an
                    entire package of cookies, and the next day while everything
                    was primal, I ate LOTS, but hopefully ovulation is over now
                    and the stupid hunger that goes along with it.

                    So stupid I get this TWICE a month, instead of just ONCE with
                    regular ol' PMS.

                    Still bloated from it too, which is rather disconcerting, but, whatever.

                    Keep on keeping on everyone!

                    Catch you back on Thursday, Lee.

                    Seems cycle day 18 is the best day of the month for me to weigh, so I'll weigh
                    in that day and see if anything has changed.

                    I guess that means Wednesday.

                    Let's see if I can be good until then. Sigh.

                    Stupid hormones.

                    • I have been doing a Whole30, and took 2T of oil Sat. a.m.
                      But I havent felt the need for oil shots, as my hunger seems under control - I dont usually feel real hungry in the morning right away, so I skip the time I would normally take an oil shot, and just eat breakfast (which is a reasonable amount of food, and I'm stuffed for hours).
                      Maybe its because I have been sticking to the Whole30 program so well this time, and my body feels nourished? Whatever, its nice to have the oil-shot option in my arsenal of dietary hacks...but nicer not to need it.
                      Cool!

                      • Julia, good to see you pop in. Blasted hormones!!

                        HD..very cool about your arsenal hack for W30. I am backing a bit off of the oil soon. I lost a total of 12 lbs and feel my setpoint really did lower. I feel great and am completely happy with how I look. Those last 10-12 lbs really were meant to come off.

                            Thanks Little Vase. I wondered where you had been.

                            • Hi everyone!
                              Has anyone tried this in conjunction with the Leptin reset?

                              I was thinking I could use the oil in place of lunch but I wonder if that is just confusing the whole reset concept.

                              • Hi Lea, I had to google leptin reset. It took me to another thread on this forum. It reminds me a lot of the Whole 30 program. They advocate eating 3 meals a day, the first one being eaten within 30 minutes of waking. It is also a reset program. No dairy or protein shakes allowed though.

                                I don't know how skipping lunch would affect what you are trying to achieve with your hormones. Sometimes mixing plans is not awesome. What if you used just a smaller amount of oil so you still eat 3 times a day but smaller amounts?

                                As I said, I had to google leptin reset so I have no clue if my idea is crazy or if it makes sense.
