    Cliff notes anyone?
    No need to feel like you missed anything. Lots of people are starting all the time.

    First figure out if you're leptin resistant.

    From Dr. K's blog:
    "How do I determine if I am leptin resistant? Remember, you can be LR (leptin resistant) if you’re fat or skinny. If you’re overweight by more than 30lbs, it is a lock you have some degree of LR. If you’re underweight by 20 lbs, you are likely LR, too. If you had an eating disorder, you’re likely suffering from a serious leptin issue.

    The easiest test is to look in the mirror. The mirror does not lie and it is really cheap. For those people who still can’t be sure after peeking in the mirror, you can order some blood tests. My favorite is the HS CRP (highly sensitive C-Reactive protein) and the reverse T3 tests (but there are others). They are accurate in over 90% of cases.

    My next favorite test is the salivary cortisol test, along with at least two of the following: HDL level, serum ferritin, homocysteine, fasting triglycerides, fasting insulin, or post-prandial glucose readings done every 15 minutes for one hour after eating. (Read my Hormone 101 blog for details.)"

    Then read this to start: MY LEPTIN PRESCRIPTION - Jack Kruse

    And his FAQ's: THE LEPTIN RX...FAQ's - Jack Kruse

    Sure wish someone there would answer one of the two emails Iíve sent over the past week, still nothing, i can read but not post! For what itís worth, my guess for factor X is overfeeding

    yea, I have tried to register over there too, but haven't gotten a confirmation email, and no reply to the two emails I sent admin, so I'm still hanging out over here instead. Frustrating though!

    This is quite a read: Dr. Jack Kruse, Neurosurgeon, is a Big Fucking Liar | Free The Animal

    So Kruse used to be a troll on football forums.

    And Factor X is apparently an asteroid event.

    So nice to have the "Free The Pitchfork People" drivel added to this thread.

    JK posted that pic to his facebook as a JOKE. Those of us who were members at the time saw it. he's never represented it as more than that.

    Live your own truth. Wallowing in paleosphere muck is strictly optional!

    Factor X has been speculated to be the KT event for a long time. Who cares?

    This thread is about doing the leptin reset with a primal diet (which is all "Jack Kruse style" implied from the beginning). It is not about Jack Kruse. That is all.

    Dr. told me to start with a 3-5 day fast with a lemon/lime maple syrup and water drink. 16 tablespoons maple syrup 6 lemon/limes 128 oz water. Supposed to drink it every 15 minutes till its gone presumably. After that she said something about a modified Leptin Reset type thing. Hopefully I can get my weight down for good this time and actually gain some health and wellbeing.

    The comments she had were eat more good fats to raise HDL. She has me taking Glysen and testanex. I can't remember what the glysen is for but the testanex is for stopping aromatase conversion of testosterone into estrogen. She said I need to get natural calm for magnesium, and to dirnk more water, use flower of the ocean salt and unrefined salt because of dehydration and emergen-c.

    She has a note next to RDW...whatever that is that says sign of anemia possibly. Also comments next to monocytes and eosinophils that say possible sign of infection.

    Primary Hypothyroid pathway 1 for both T4 and TSH numbers and Pathway 3 Underconversion next to T3. She said to take Vitamin D Omega 3 and Glutathione for the TPO Antibodies I think

    I plan on cold thermogenesis at some point, but haven't decided the best way to get water temp down in my bathtub....reuseably. I was contemplating using the ice packs out of an ice vest...but not sure if thats enough ice.

    I was thinking of buying this vest which comes with 3 ice packs + a replacement set for 6 sets of ice....probably isn't enough ice. I need a way to cool down the bath that doesn't involve continuously buying 40 pounds of ice every day though....

    Anyone have any suggestion for a nagging ear ache? My left inner ear has been throbbing for 2 weeks and is accomopanied by a headache on that side. I went to a Dr a week ago and she wasn't able to see that it looked infected. She prescribed an antibiotic/steroid eardrop which doesn't seem to be helping I tried candling before I went to the Dr. I don't want to take oral antibiotics if I don't need them. Not sure what to do...

    vitamin C megadosing for any infection, ever, and garlic/mullein oil for ear infections specifically, and/or breastmilk in the ear if you have access to it.
