    Well, duh. I thought the optimal living was our other optimal site. Got confused. I found the link on Doc's Facebook.

    Hi everyone. I am coming late to the party here and trying to catch up on the reading but this is after all the monster thread. I started Leptin Reset about two weeks ago and added CT a week ago. I have Hashimoto's, so I am doing Leptin Reset, AI protocol (no dairy, no eggs, no nightshades), leaky gut RX and adrenal RX. I am also an Hcg'er. After Hcg I have had continual problems with low blood sugar, which I now gather is related to adrenal functioning. I am also having a hard time maintaining on the leptin reset and have gained about 2-3 pounds. I would like to lose about 7 pounds and have the blubby belly issue. I guess the term around here is skinny fat. I am 5’6&1/2 and around 130# but do not have anywhere near a flat stomach. I am eating low carb high fat but don't think I am any where near keto status. I generally need three meals a day too. Find it hard to do the BAB without eggs but I'm experimenting with different combos of foods and seeing what makes me feel full without feeling like crap. I started CT with the facedunks but couldn't tolerate having my nose in the water - totally made my sinuses go wako and now I have some sort of head cold/sinus thing going on (I haven’t had a problem with my sinuses in over two years). I moved on to cold packs on my stomach and back twice a day and once that was ok on the skin, I moved on to cold baths. I have done three. I can’t say it’s pleasant at all. It sometimes sets my Raynaud’s off and I do not warm up very fast. Last night, I did 20 minutes in 55 degree water before bed and two hours later, I was still shivering. I have read a lot of comments about the shivering but don’t know what that is a sign of other than I am not cold adapted! I know my Omega 6s are too high from what I have read and from looking at my before diet (mayo, blue cheese salad dressing, almonds…). So working on that. I read about the salmon oil and will be looking for some of that.
    So far with my reset and CT, I have a lot of bloating (is it the coconut oil and is it a good thing??). I have a head cold. Mild weight gain. I seem to have one good day and one day where I feel like crap (tired and hungry and irritable). Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and had some mild nausea. Any pointers, advice would be greatly appreciated! THANKS

    Coconut oil w/cinnamon as dessert? Tell me more. Not using manna, but actual CO?

    Do you have a recipe?

    Has anyone had success using CT to reduce belly fat/waiste size? Is so, what did you do? Ice packs, cold showers, cold baths? How much did you reduce?

    No success with any weightloss for me with CT or inches.
