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?

The above sounds a little harsh, was actually meant to be enthusiastic and encouraging, oh well.
I lost 25 lbs in 5 months without counting calories. As long as you limit your intake of carbs and get most of your food from fat and protein, there shouldn't be a problem. It's not a math equation. Calorie restriction frequently leads to cheating. Take it easy on yourself. Some people do gain weight at different points of the reset.
