    That's the way it is for me - still occasionally having a good energy day but then having a few low energy ones after that. I feel like I am on my way there, and I have a number of issues identified, but I can't say I feel like I am "there" yet. And "there" keeps changing anyways. I couldn't tolerate any dairy to start with, and now I can have some. I am making progress, but I wish it was faster and easier to see exactly how to get down the path I want to go!

    L - leftovers: bit o' goat leg, brussels sprouts, spinach, turnip cass (negligible cheese), ground beef w/ tomatoes, egg, sausage
    D - ribeye, buttered carrots, spinach & greens

    Results
    - energy holding steady
    - broke 150 for the first time all summer (I guess it's fall today, huh?)
    - dropped 1/4 - 1/2" on my hips, "saddlebags," rear, and thigh - all since SATURDAY - just four days ago!
    - still able to return to sleep after being woken, although it was a little testy the last two nights, and took more than 5m to get to sleep.
    - fasting bg was 64 this morning. It was 80-90 this summer (after 6 wk weekend binge spree this spring), but 54 before that.
    - testing postprandial no-carb baseline this morning:
    fasting 64
    20m pp 70
    35m pp 80
    50m pp 79
    65m pp 67 !!
    - took a nap over TWO HOURS long this morning. By 10:30, felt like I was dead. Wow, that was some nap!
    - lunch blood glucose (tiny tiny bit of cheese, turnip, leafy greens)
    fasting 73
    15m pp 79
    45m pp 85
    - dinner blood glucose (copious butter, about one carrot, greens)
    60m pp 76 (I'm really bad about consistency!)
    120m pp 79
    Well, clearly butter doesn't spike me. YAY!!!! Greens and carrot, all good.

    I'll test with some cheese next meal, some very fermented yogurt another meal, and some less fermented yogurt another meal. Some fruit another meal. I wanna see what's going on!

    That's a good idea, keep us posted.

    Depends on what you binge on ^_^.

    Of course leptin resistance is a different animal.

    I've had days where I stuff my face, other days where I fast to help my insulin resistance subside. When I binge, it's on bacon, lots of veggies, and protein (which also raises your sugar if you're eating too much from what my doctor said.) I lowered my protein intake on lazy days to about 100g and on active/workout days to 120/130g.

    Of course, I'm just starting out, so I gotta listen to my body and see what happens.

    Keep up the good work!

    congrats on 24 days without binging! I think it is funny that you said that since it was Tuesday you were unlikely to binge!

    Also congrats on dropping below 150.

    LOL, I tend to do weekends, demuralist! Nothing going on on a Tuesday.

    fpsjosh01, I've never binged on anything but carbs. I could easily eat 12 servings of ice cream in a sitting (and have room for plenty more), could never ever eat 12 servings of beef in a serving (48oz).

    When I was on a bender, ready to binge, I could binge on anything, well anything ready made. I would not have picked up 12 servings of beef unless it was beef jerky, then yes I would have. Not sure why but ever since I went low carb I have not had a binge. I consider a binge eating even when my inner voice is saying you really should not be eating all of this and still looking for more. Just literally not being able to stop. Which is different than a cheat, which would only have been sweet homemade cakey type things, but not necessarily uncontrolled.

    Crazy result - the hair on my arm is back! Really weird, just about a month after I went primal (Mar 2010), I noticed that there didn't seem to be much hair on my arm. Now, I don't normally pay attention to my arm hair, so I wasn't sure, but it just didn't seem normal. I was slightly concerned; I think it can be thyroid-related? an dmy grandmother had no hair on her arms or legs, so wasn't sure what to think. And it was hard to tell - my hair is veyr, very blond, really hard to see.

    I just noticed last week that it's all back!

    I can't be sure when it came back, but I've noticed it several times since last week, and not before, so I'm thinking it must be recent. If so, it must be LR related - or HCl related? Anyway, now that it's back, I know it was very sparse back in 3/10, b/c there's no mistaking - I have a normal arm's worth of hair now. No way you could look at it and say, "is that too little?"
