      Yeah, 'junk' is completely relative. My kids have given up begging for me to buy a loaf of bread at the supermarket for them (just one loaf! please!). Baking biscuits and muffins with grandma (using real flour!) or me making 'Dad's World famous homemade pizza' is what blows their mind.

      Kids are great.

        i think alot of it comes down the maternal line. my paternal grandmother was in that neck of the woods at the same time. was half jewish and dodged the camps. she did the refuge thing with the russians chasing them. they all starved badly too. i dont know what they ate when they did get to eat and there is no one left to ask now. i do know they all lived on toast and jam and tea in the depression. they also got fruit as it was there and easy to get and seafood for the same reason.

            • Good morning from rainy London folks

              I bought a thermometer yesterday and just took my morning temperature (using Matt Stone's method): 95.9F. Can this be right?! I know my body has a lot of difficulty in regulating temperature (freeze in the cold, sweat profusely in the heat), but this seems really low.

              Also, my good sleep is wearing off, even though I'm eating 3.5K cals a day (it's 5am here now, I woke up half an hour ago after going to bed at 12.30) It was like this yesterday too. And I'm waking up hungry, which is the kicker. I can understand waking up wanting breakfast when I'm starving myself, but 3.5K cals a day? Doesn't make sense...

                Just googled it - looks interesting! (What does WAP mean?)

                    Prior to your initiative to "eat the food", were you or had you been eating particularly low calorie and low carb?

                    95.9 is not a normal temperature at all. There are a few reasons you could have this temperature:
                    1) you slept with mouth open - mouth breathing can generate an inaccurate read
                    2) your thermometer battery is low (assuming it's digital)
                    3) your thermometer was really cold and didn't have time to warm up to your actual temperature before beeping (assuming again that it's digital). In this situation, Matt Stone recommends warming up the tip of the thermometer with your hand for a few seconds to avoid false readings.
                    4) you're hypothyroid

                      • I've been overeating for the past week. Yesterday I was uncomfortably full. It actually hurt. An experience I don't want to repeat.

                        I thought I was making gains... by upping carbs, fat, starches... But I've lost weight. I'm now half a pound lower than when I started trying to gain weight! I'm really not happy.

                        I also haven't been working out as much, because of how lethargic I feel after eating.

                        • I'm not suggesting any of these are causing your problem Leida but I just googled 'metallic taste in mouth' for my own edification, found a list of terrifying conditions with metallic taste as a symptom, was totally fascinated, and thought I'd share.

                          Discovery Health "Why is there a metallic taste in my mouth?"

                            You don't need to or even have to take your morning temperature but some people do as a way to help get an idea of how well their metabolism is work and most women take their morning temperature to help determine where they are in their cycle.

                            Matt Stone recommends taking morning temperature as well as your temperature before and after meals as a way to evaluate metabolic health. He recommends a target morning temperature of 98 degrees - higher for women who are in the post ovulatory phase of their cycle. If you aren't hitting that, he provides measures to take to help increase your temperature and if those don't work, getting checked out for hypothyroidism.

                            • Thank you. I was taking my temperature when I was trying to get pg, and if it is not necessary, I am glad to never do it again, lol.

                                Thank you for sharing the RRARF pdf, YB...I'll plow through it this afternoon

                                Waking up hungry after not sleeping well makes sense...at least it usually seems to be the case with me. It's like the body is saying, okay, we didn't get enough time last night to fix stuff up, so I'mma need some extra energy today to push through, let's get this started!

                                @Amber - I'm sorry you're finding this process so frustrating (and I mean everything you've been trying lately, not just this specifically). I can't offer much in the way of personal advice - not weighing enough hasn't ever been an issue for me. All I would suggest is trying to focus on the most calorie and nutrient dense foods you can think of and just eating as much as you're comfortable with - not stuffing yourself so you feel gross, but maybe eating more frequently throughout the day will help? I wish you luck...I wish ALL of us luck, in finally sorting all this out and being the healthiest people we can be right now.

                                @Leida - body temperature is an indicator of metabolic function...low body temp can mean some degree of metabolic dysfunction. I started taking my temp to see if this 'refeeding' experiment will help raise my body temperature, therefore indicating a positive correction in my metabolic function.
