    Interesting. People are posting many links that show how long term vlc can be detrimental. How come I didn't know this before? Because I was blinded by my "get thin" obsession.
    What is long term? A year? two? Just trying to gauge it. Thanks

    Also, it sounds like your chiro knows his stuff. If only there were more like him. On that note, I am going to take Josh's advice and eat some potatoes, because they are f'ing good.

    I was VLC for a year except on days I binged because I was VLC.

    For the first 6 months I was pretty faithfully VLC.

    The hypoglycemia is unique to my situation and a direct result of the rollercoaster of VLC to sugar binge.

    Funny, there are actually 2 Paleo chiropractors in my little town.

    Hmmm....fair enough. So it seems then that a VLC Leptin reset type deal might work presuming one went back to eating Mark's recommended carb levels after that. Interesting.

    Yes, I believe so, as long as you watch for symptoms. LR is not necessarily VLC, but can be done that way.

    I am not anti VLC, for everyone, just for me. It has it's place in jump starting weight loss and treating certain illnesses.

    I agree, I have not heard of any symptoms like yours from VLC, not sure it would have scared me away though, promise of weight loss with low hunger ya know. So it looks like your binges were telling you that you had a deficiency, just not one we expected.

    You are so lucky to have that chiro!

    Slept 6 hrs even with a nasty cold. You would think the cold would make my sleep anxiety worse, but it hasn't.

    Food was perfect yesterday. About 79g carb, 86g protein.
    Felt satisfied, no urge to binge. This is, in fact, the toughest week in my cycle for possible bingeing.

    Fun Plans for the coming weekend. We are going to Boston to visit my Brother in law and his family. Hoping to go to the St Patty's Day Parade. Even though I am not Irish, I have to be on St Patty's Day. I married a Walsh.

    I keep thinking of upping my carbs somewhat but I'm trying to figure out the best way of doing it. I don't seem to have that taste for vegetables anymore. I keep thinking that maybe some women just need more carbs then the men folk around here do. It's that time for me and yesterday was not terribly bad, but bad nonetheless. I ate a Reese's cup and yeah. Most days, I only eat carbs with one meal so I am thinking I may need to add a sweet potato or something into the mix.

    Geo, This is my current menu. Its about 75 carbs.

    Br. 2 egg, 2 bacon or other meat, 1 fruit, 1/2 cup peppers,onions,mushrooms (I don't have nightshade issues.)
    L. Min. 3 oz Meat, 1/2 cup beets, 1/2 cup other veg (Today, squash and carrots)
    D. Min. 3 oz Meat, 1/2 large sweet potato, 1 cup salad (usually with avocado or olives)

    That's about 3 cups of veg in a variety of colors + 1 fruit which I rotate (apple, banana, grapes, orange, berries)

    With fats it comes to about 1600 cals, which happens to be my target. It turns out that I do not need snacks to control the hypoglycemic symptoms as long as I eat good carbs at each meal.

    Just wandering around and found your journal. I didn't read the whole thing b/c quite frankly a year's worth of material would take me forever to get through. lol

    I'm sorry to hear that you're suffering from hypoglycemia. I have no advice, and I'm sure any advice I could offer would have already been offered up by someone more qualified than me to give it. I just wanted to give you a hug and say that I hope you can find a solution to it quickly.

    On the homefront... husbands suck sometimes. I haven't been married long enough to give any marital advice either (only been married 6 years). But I hope you guys can figure out what's creating the tension and bring it to a close. Best of luck and hugs to you.
