Well, I'm going to try all this starting next week. I still haven't signed up for the yahoo group because I hate signing up for new websites, but I have all the (expensive) supplements and Brazil nuts ready to go. I couldn't find the exact ATP cofactors, but I found a "co-enzyme" supplement with all the B's which I hope is close enough.
Grizz, did the supplements themselves give you side effects? I'm comfortable with the C, the D, and the Brazil nuts, and I love salt. But 400mg of magnesiusm scares me, so I will start with 200 mg at home. I don't know what the B's will do.
Meanwhile, I'm testing iodine on two small moles I have on my right big toe. I drip a small drop of 2% on each one and let it sit for a minute before rubbing it in. I've been doing that twice a day for five days, and maybe I think the skin looks a little thicker and puckery(?) around the whole area, but I can't tell. Could just be random irritation. If i see some noticeable difference, then I'll feel a lot better about this iodine stuff.
I checked curezone and can't find any sex-drive cure-all for women equivalent to the man-painting, no concrete testimonials. Dammit.
5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106 lbs. Resetting with the 21-day challenge.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
