    Sugar in your Greek yogurt? Were you getting the plain? Mine only has 7g sugar per serving.

    jenn...I do a protein breakfast...2 or 3 eggs(scrambled with a little butter & sprinkle of cheese)...2 slices of bacon. Sometimes I may make me an omelet to which I may add a little sauteed onion & mushrooms. Sometimes I may also have 2 or 3 strawberries. That usually tides me over till about 3 or 4 o'clock. But I'm trying to eat a light lunch now about 1:30ish, since due to my thyroid/adrenal issues I'm not supposed to skip meals. That's gonna be hard because I'm generally not hungry until right before supper. I'm going to try & have a little snack about 3:30ish. I couldn't do the "real" leptin reset. Just to much for me.

    When I started eating a BAB (mostly protein) from the beginning I no longer have the crashes you have described.

    don't know if that helps or not.

    No. I get the Chobani with the fruit on the bottom.

    Took my measurements. Not much change, but apparently there's enough to make my jeans fit poorly. I keep having to tug them back up into place after taking about 3 steps.

    Only changes for this 2 week period were

    Natural waist: 39 inches down to 38.5 inches.
    Butt: 47.25 inches down to 47 inches

    3/4 of an inch... I suppose that'll do. But the last two weeks haven't been as disciplined as previous weeks. Too much freedom with liquid calories over the weekend (hot chocolate at the track b/c it's so ungodly cold!), birthday cake this weekend, etc.

    After doing the reading I've done today, I have decided I am going to do the leptin reset as outlined by Dr. Jack Kruse. For me, it'll be a ketogenic diet of mostly proteins and fats and vegetable carbs. I think I'm pretty well on schedule with what he wants meaning I eat breakfast and dinner only and if I feel I need lunch, it's typically just, as he puts it, rabbit food. Today I had a salad for lunch - not a big one... a little one.

    Only issue is that I absolutely positively MUST follow the PB as prescribed... of course, because of financial constraints, I have to stick with store bought meats b/c I don't have the budget for grass-fed yet. Very soon. Like end of this month soon... weekends will be tough with the races and whatnot, but if I schedule my meals just right, I can avoid eating at the track. I just have to remind myself that I don't need Mt. Dew, not even one, on the weekends.

    Unlike the LR, I will eat my carbs in the evening b/c I think my cortisol peaks are hitting in the afternoon instead of in the mornings. Dr. Kruse says to eat most of your carbs during the cortisol peak, so that's what I'll do.

    I'm excited. It's pretty much what I was doing a few weeks ago and it was working to burn the fat and drop the weight.

    By the way, I haven't given up on the adrenal/thyroid issues b/c Dr. K says that a leptin reset will fix all those problems.

    I can't see how a reset will "fix" the thyroid/adrenal issues. Those are not quick fixes... takes time. Isn't the reset for like 30 days? I haven't read what all he says about thyroid/adrenal issues...I'll have to check that out later. From all I'm reading if you have thyroid/adrenal issues then you shouldn't skip meals (no fasting), but eat 3 meals & then a snack or two. Its all about fixing our metabolism.

    I just ran in here to check something else & popped in but now I'm running back out. I'll check out what he says later. where's Lex when we need her??? lol

    Actually, he says it could take a minimum of 6 weeks on the leptin reset to see results, and longer if you don't follow it according to plan. I didn't see anything about 30 days...

    I got my info on the FAQ page: THE LEPTIN RX...FAQ's - Jack Kruse

    To save you some time...

    Will the Leptin Reset fix thyroid problems? If you read the Hormone 101 blog, you’d know this answer already. Shame on you! Anyone with a leptin problem has a thyroid problem by definition. So if you fix leptin, you can easily fix the thyroid. If you have an extreme case, you may need a doctor to help guide you back to optimal.
    Will the Leptin Reset fix adrenal problems? It depends on the severity of the condition, as most are tied to cortisol issues. High cortisol levels are harder to treat than low cortisol levels. If they are really bad, I treat both the same time. Most often though, with adaptogenic support and some good doctoring, you can fix most adrenal problems.

    Jenn, dairy also has a bad effect on insulin, so it could actually be the greek yogurt that makes you tired!

    Hi,

    Must say this is my first post so bear with me, just found the forum after playing primal for few months and saw today posts, start to read (beginning of your threat) and do also struggle with my DH to accept this lifestyle, however in our case the aim is my DS to gain weight and fight eczema ( which did worked!) as long we stuck with it.

    This weeks must say for nextmonth too we are sky high stressed cos of my uni, last year rain of projets and with a toddler and baby there is no time left to think about food nevermind cooking plus this brain is asking for carbs like mad. All I can do is stick with fruits and dark chocolate and let my DH cook which is real food but not primal anyhow I choose to don't stress about that too.

    Also I cannot believe how little people eat on this forum, maybe because I am full on breastfeeding and I need an extra 500 cal but man I more than two people and still only a belly showing up lately.

    I found eating fruits with fat does stops somehow the sugar high after.

    Also we do not afford grass fed either only mail order around here (London UK) so we stick with organic and free range when even organic is not available. Oh well...

    Why don't you try a smoothie mornings can make it with coconut milk some greens and banana as long you keep greens 70% and rest fruit will be great.try it

    Have a nice day!

    Hey Jenn, read this post Guest Post: Alison from PaleoNonPaleo | Paleo Parents and thought about the problems you have with your DS. Could it be food-related? Can you see his behavior is better/worse when (not) eating certain things?

    Jenn- that hot chocolate and cake on the weekends can cause problems later in the week, too. Seems like a shot of sugar messes me up for days, and makes my system go out of whack. Something to consider. That said, I think a mostly protein breakfast might be the right thing for you, going my your experience.
