    yeah the muscles are about 2-3 finger gap. And even sitting up in bed is hard.
    I can do planks with difficultly, but these are what my physio had me doing, it helped a little but I don't think it will close on his own. And when you have a separation when you stand it kind of bulges out so pushes the fat out more.
    My belly seems to go up and down daily and bloody dairy is what is causing me a problem, I need to go cold turkey on that.
    OMG I am doing this, GM can you help me LOL

    I did a fast the other day for 24 hours and did feel great, and did feel the tummy go down, maybe ill try 1-2 a week as well.
    Is that better to save till after the reset?
    I really need to get reading on all the info, I need to do this!
    Don't IF until you're done with the reset. I only started 24-hour IFs 3 weeks ago, 4 months after doing the reset.

    thanks for that, time to get reading
    but short answer:
    50 g protein in the morning
    and 25 g of carbs over the whole day? (I have 25 kg ish to lose).
    No snacking (not even milk/cream in coffee in between) and straight CO is OK if hungry though?

    ITA - no IF'ing until you know you are leptin sensitive.

    I had a diastasis with every child (I have five), and maintained abdominal strength, and eventually the muscles came together, as well. I don't know what all the factors are, but it's not universal that diastasis = core strength gone forever.

    Your transformation is incredible too MG!
    How long did it take the muscles to come together?

    CO between meals is only okay if you have PCOS. No milk/cream in coffee or tea between meals, but okay with meals. No meals later than 3 hours before bed (this will really help with sleep-quality). Eat yor BAB within 30 min of getting up. The BAB efficiently ended my constant urge to snack, brilliant!

    I was told before my first I had PCOS, due to blood test results, due to a really irregular cycle and not getting pregnant and I was put on metformin, and while following Weight Watchers, I lost 5 kg and then got a regular cycle and got pregnant.
    But have not had any of those tests since and do have a regular cycle, so not likely to have PCOS now?

    Not sure, but I guess you can start protocol, and if you really struggle with fatigue and hunger between meals, assume its PCOS, and take some CO. I think you should be okay though, a real BAB keeps you going for hours.

    Ayla2010 I would be interested to hear what the doc says about the surgery for your ab separation. Like how its done etc. My children are 4 and 3 and I still have a 2-3 separation. I dont think its ever going to go away and I do pilates on top of my workouts once a week. Planks I'm good at so I recommend sticking with those. I must agree though it does make my tummy look bigger than it actually is so would be interested in the details. My core is quite good though from doing planks and the pilates so I keep working on it. I also find pushups good for the core.
