    I can't address your exercise question but I can offer that my husband is a naturally thin guy, but had a crazy sugar and carb addiction. We're talking several sodas a day, candy, dried frut, bread or pasta at every meal, sugar coated cereal, lots of potato. I don't know how his body burned it all. He has had eczema since puberty. He couldn't hold his hand steady - always a tremor. Got him to test his blood glucose. Fasting over 100. He was on board with the reset right away. He's changed his habits and now, just a few weeks later his fasting blood glucose is 83, his desire for sweets is under control, and the tremor/shaking is gone. It looks like the eczema will be a thing of the past - no new patches since he cut out wheat October 1. He's also lost 3 lbs (almost all in the belly).

    I did, sir. At least I read the RX and FAQ and looked for this answer in the rest of the blog but I did not find it. In the follow up you recommend training between 1pm and 5pm. Why does the recommendation change?

    Just trying to understand. For myself I suppose it does not matter because my favored activities cannot be done after 5pm in the winter and I am not willing to give them up.

    Like my mother always says, take what resonates with you and leave the rest. So I will.

    Thank you for your time.

    I did, and still couldn't find the answer to this. Cortisol should be higher in the morning, lower in the evening, right? Why then do something stressful in the evening rather than in the morning?

    I think that some of the problems people are having with this is that it really isn't a diet program, so thinking about it like another diet program will get you all caught up in that. For example, the recommendation is to do it for a few weeks perfectly, and start back at square one if you go off it. In a typical diet program, you just cheat for a day, and then continue. But this is different. There is this assumption in CW diet-land, and in many paleo camps, this concept of homeostasis. But when you are trying to balance hormones, you can't just go on and off and on and off something and expect things to settle down so quickly. And maybe they do for young men. But for many of us, just going low carb didn't cut it.

    That said, when I did straight low carb or low carb paleo, I never experienced the changes in temperature. Even though low carb got rid of my hot flashes, and my muscles still got really sore after working out and I got really cold when I IF'd or reduced calories. I absolutely never in my life forgot to eat before, so yes, this is different. But I do not share with others that you have to have a particular sort of religious-like belief in it in order for it to work. I suppose if the recommendations were so far off what I was already doing, I would have demanded more proof. But really, when lots of the early people started, DrK hadn't written all the blog yet. Its just a strict low carb paleo plan with some meal spacing and portion suggestions.

    Why don't you re-visit it in the spring? Read along till then, gather evidence on both the scientific and success (or lack thereof) sides. You can then decide if it's worth it to hold off on strenuous activity for just 6 weeks, *if* the result is losing all sugar cravings forever.

    Thank you, MamaGrok, that really helps. That gives me hope. I guess misery loves company.

    It's a good suggestion. I might try just the dietary side of it now, that part makes intuitive sense to me, without altering my exercise regime, to see how that goes.

    Also, I admit at first I was quite skeptic but seeing how generous Dr Kruse is in giving his time to this makes it much more believable to me. Thanks to everyone for the responses.

    Also, I work night shift and cannot immediately change, so I'm screwed anyway.

This is what my hubby says too, you don't know cuz you changed so many things at once. I needed to do something.

    D is for vit D (right)?Yes.

    fibroids?Nope

    Fibroids

    Estrogen dominance is the leading cause of fibroids and a precursor to a hormonal sensitive tumor. This condition is an epidemic largely ignored by conventional medicine. For this reason, preventive steps and early intervention is highly advisable.

    Fibroids are promoted by persistently high estrogen production. Without the monthly balancing effect of progesterone, the uterus continues to grow. Prevention and treatment of fibroids from a non-surgical perspective should therefore focus on reducing the level of estrogen in the body as well as increasing the level of progesterone (the antagonist to estrogen) level within.
    ==================================================

    It would be a good idea to get your steroid hormone panel first.
    Your doc may have done some of it before (that is why you are getting pregnenolone and progesterone).Yes, she added the prog. and I added the pregnenolone and 7-keto dhea.

    I thing you badly (for the last 10 years or more) need Arimidex,
    probably 1mg/day or 1mg/EOD
    Why do you think I need this? I did have calcium deposits removed a few years back.
    pick one
    do blood tests of
    Estradiol, sensitive month latter.
    .............
    I am taking Arimidex 1mg/E5D to get from E2~50 to 20
    You need to get from E2=591 to 212 or less, (11-212)
