  1. Believe me, I know ALL about the Protein Style!...

    Believe me, I know ALL about the Protein Style! =) It's hard to walk in there and NOT eat fries or get a shake, though. I just try to avoid the place altogether. But... I dunno... maybe I should pay...

    I've been considering protein shakes, but I'm having a hard time finding one that doesn't have a lot of crap in it, especially soy lecithin (I think I may be sensitive to soy now). The ones I was...

    If I wasn't so adamant about not eating gluten (last time I went on a bread bender, I ended up in the ER a couple days later), I'd be heading to the nearest In-n-Out for lunch today! Hahaha... I have...

    I already do. Everything I eat is either cooked in butter or coconut oil, mixed with butter (like sweet potatoes), doused in olive oil (like salads), or has lots of fat in it already (like bacon)....

    I have naturally high iron levels. While pregnant with my daughter, I had a blood clot in my uterus caused by excessive iron (they throw iron pills at every pregnant woman in America without testing...

    I've been checked for it; my D levels are normal. I supplement and get sun, so I know I'm not deficient, unless some chemical process in my body is keeping me from absorbing it properly...

    Sweet potatoes have been my staple all through this thing. Lots of butter and cinnamon for me too, and some maple syrup to up the sugar content. I've avoided carrots because they seem to cause me...

    This is another reason why I wanted to have my hormone levels checked. A friend of mine, who's in vet medicine school right now (granted, it's animals, not people, but she's up to her ears in medical...

    You are SO right: I HAVE tried just about everything as far as diet & lifestyle, and a slew of medical tests that have told me nothing. And yes, it is INCREDIBLY stressful. But it's hard to...
