    My unused protein is definitely not turning to fat.

    Detox bath?

    But, yes. It seems strange to eat so much protein and then not exercise at all. I read somewhere that unused protein turns to fat?? In any case, I'm keeping my lunch meals as tiny as possible, or skipping them altogether so that I do use up all that protein. ???
    Yeah, it seems like it would be impossible to eat lunch after a breakfast like that. Right now anyway, I'd have to force feed myself. So, I'll just go my anti-candida diet + exercise without overdoing it route for now. But I'm still interested in seeing how you and MamaGrok do on this leptin reset because I'll probably try it at some point.

    Try 1tsp baking soda in glass of water, and drink one every hour until UTI symptoms disappear. Symptoms are usually gone within 3-4 hours. Works everytime!

    I took a tsp of baking soda. Then went to the store and got the sodium ascorbate Vit C and took a spoonful of that, which is 4 to 5k whatever units. The next hr I took one more spoonful of C and immediately hit 'bowel tolerance'. At work! It was a little awkward to say the least. Popping off my interpreter chair a few times when I was 'on' because things had become...er, explosive. I stopped there because I didn't want to keep having these emergencies at work. The symptoms went away and seem to be at bay this morning. Crossed fingers!

    Thank you for this idea. Took a detox bath on day 9 (week 2, day 2). Filtered bath water with epsom salts. Was soo nice!

    Where did you find SAP in a store? I'm always hoping to find it in a local store to point folks to who are less willing to order online!

    Jealous of your filtered bath water. I can't make my baths too hot b/c the evaporating chlorine makes me ill.
