    Paula- you still doing the paleo right?? or have you let some items back in?? dairy? something? hang in there girl...
    right. Women naturally should have more body fat than men anyway. It makes your curves look much better.

    I really hope you guys figure it out, when you do, let me know, so I can tell my female friends what to do to lose weight.

    Good luck.

    Huh, you learn something new every day. When I binge...no, I don't binge, as I really do not like that word - it implies I have no control, as if I wake up from a dreamlike state surrounded by empty twinkie packets and ben and jerry's cartons...when I eat shit I shouldn't I know exactly what I am doing. I just don't give a damn. I go, "huh, I should not be eating this. yeah, but I want to. Okay, so lets eat it."

    I had no idea it was different for women. Cool to know. Yay for primal and understanding the opposite sex!

    I only read back a page so if I am way off on the binging forgive me. Last cycle I had my first ever without a binge. MY binges are always tied to pms. I once low carbed for 4 years straight and still fell off like clockwork monthly. Didnt matter if I was fat, thin low carb high carb etc.


    Early December I sought advice from someone well versus in natural medicine and three things made a big difference in cravings for me. The first was taking primrose oil daily. The second was the natural calm magnesium every night. The third was to eat to my hearts content as long as it was lower carb. If it was 3000 calories it was ok. I made it through without binging on carbs. I even lost a few lbs where as that time of the month always shows a gain.

    The magnesium and primrose made a huge difference.

    Hey Chelle, I actually take both natural calm and primrose daily. I think eating a lot more lower carb food may be part of the answer. I'll try that next month.

    Jon, I need to work on the control part. The only thing that seems to stop a binge for me is going to bed. It's kind of embarassing actually.

    Nothing to be embarrassed about. You have the raging hormones and all.

    Yesterday was not a good day. Hormones were raging, stress was high and emotions were out of control. It culminated with a night of only 4 hrs of sleep. I woke up having a hot flash and couldn't go back to sleep because my brain started "thinking".

    My solution: Stay home from work and take care of some of the stuff that is hanging over me. Get some sleep. Breathe.

    Thanks everyone for the support yesterday. I'm damn glad that I didn't write all that I was thinking as I read some of the responses here. I may not agree with everything that was said, but it all helps to keep me moving forward.

    I also ate a ridiculous amount of coconut and olive oil during the cravings week. I do mean ridiculous. My hubby about fell over watching me also eat a pound of dripping in fat broccoli with my steak. I also mad the choc/ coconut bark quite a bit. I hope you find your solution. It is not easy being a chick with all these crazy hormones! I hope you got some better sleep. That has a huge affect also. No mater what though, you have really done an awesome job!!!!!! Binges and raging hormones aside you are a huge success and have really come a long way!!!! Don't let some binges and those wonky hormones us chicks have let you forget that
