Well. I made it through "hump day" clean. Day 5 seems to be a watershed day for me, so hopefully this means I am on my way to long term clean eating. I figure if I can make it through an emotional day like yesterday, I can make it through anything.
I am doing a sodium experiment that I explained in depth in the EMF thread. Phinney and Volek "The art and science of low carb living" recommend 5000mg of sodium from diet and bouillon or broth.
Today is the first Monday of the month, so super long day for me , but I am feeling good.
Congrats on making it through yesterday - now you know you CAN do it
Geez Pebbles. When it rains, it pours. I have no magical advice, just hugs and encouragement.
YOU CAN DO EEEET!

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

I'll definitely stop if I experience any extreme edema. I usually have one cube of bouillon, so my new plan is only upping by one. I may also try salted water instead of the bouillon at some point to see if I can get the same results without the msg etc.
The Rapunzel brand of vegan vegetable bouillon with sea salt, that I bought yesterday at Whole Foods does not have msg in it. It is also gluten free-unless yeast extract has gluten (?)- I was at Whole Foods and that was all they had in the way of bouillon.
