Just when I'm convinced Dr. Kruse is making all this Leptin Reset stuff up, I read this:
"Synaptic plasticity – the ability of the synaptic connections between the brain's neurons to change and modify over time -- has been shown to be a key to memory formation and the acquisition of new learning behaviors. Now research led by a scientific team at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) reveals that the neural circuits controlling hunger and eating behaviors are also controlled by plasticity...."

And no, no problems with big boobies. When my weight goes down, they are the first thing to go. And they are all me, big or small LOL
I just picked up a lab requisition from my doc and she has FSH, LH checked along with TSH (with T-3 and T-4 inked in next to the TSH). Should I ask about Free T-3, Free T-4, Reverse T-3 and R-T-4 also? The nurse said she didn't check the Estradoil or Progesterone since they will be able to check those when they do the FSH test. Just double checking since I am really trying to understand all these tests.
Just ordered mine this morn from a local lab that serves a health clinic. I just walked in a fwe years ago and found out I can get any test and I self-pay. They are cheaper than they charge insurance co's. But call ahead and arrange a "kit" that the lab prolly doesn't have on hand and will have to order. They age and go bad. I paid $140 for MSH. Requires special handling so be insistent on them following instructions to avoid wasting your time.
Just fried up some wild Maine shrimp in shell in a pan with c.oil, ghee and garlic and turmeric. Tasty. Now looking at my LARGE pile of shells, and wondering if they would make a bone-like broth??? Anyone ever try? Lots of good flavor soaked into them too.
Also, MammaG: where are you finding your AID protocol, or are you just eliminating majority of commonly offending things?
OK, I decided to count calories today and wow - no wonder I am gaining weight. I was trying to be conservative with a small lunch and I am up to 1,850 calories. I don't exercise and I don't work. My extent of physical activity today was cleaning bathrooms, dusting, and vacuuming the floor.
Should I be cutting back until I am LS?
