  • Question for the women

    How much fluid do you seem to retain around that TOM?
    Curious really, I know we are all different. Seems to be around 1-2 kg for me.

    I think about 8lbs. My waist size also goes from slightly loose to tight as heck.

      About 3lbs, generally, but less since primal. I am pretty irregular now though.
      Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
      Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
      Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

        I'm usually 58 kilos, and when menstruating i'm 60. I'm 26 inches at 58 kilos, and 27 inches at 60 kilos.

          I should add that when I am strict about my diet for several months (ie, no grains/treats), then I have no bloating and therefore no gain. But around the holidays (last two cycles), i was back to the usual bloat-cycle.

          So, looks like this cycle is shaping up to be easier . . . better.

            None, TOM never seems to make a noticeable difference with me, never has, even before primal.
            Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

                started aiming for 100% since the 11th Jan and have been cramping and bloated for the past two weeks only to finally get the worst one ever 2 days ago ... maybe just another form of detox? I had loads of female issues (cervical cancer, fibroids, PCOS) over the past few years and being 80% was a huge help so i think aiming for 100% would have even better results.

                I picked up 2kg (my cheesecake slipup could also be to blame) a few days ago which i lost again 2 days later.

                  Not much fluid retention but I bloat up around the middle. Generally my weight remains +/- 1 pound.

                      I never weigh myself, so I don't know the number, but I can tell you that my pants fit tight in the waist, arse, and thighs for two days. And I absolutely swear that I feel like a hinking, waddling, lumbering, elephant seal stuck on dry land.

                        I had a hysterectomy and now I'm in perimenopause (hot flashes every damn night) so I have no idea. Also, I quit weighing myself. I don't want to know anymore. I retain a lot more weight just drinking a single beer anyway so what difference does it make?

                            Anywhere from 2-5 pounds, depending on what I'm eating that week.
