    A good friend of mine was falling asleep anytime she sat down. Turns out she had very low iron. Just something else to consider.

    Week one results of HFLC:

    Started primal New Years Day. Did not drop an ounce.
    Started HFLC on 1/21/13 @ 151.6
    1/28/13 @. 146.8

    Almost 5 pounds. I have never shed this much in a week. I walked more. At least a 5k daily, soe days 2x and 1 day 3x. I had abundant energy and wanted to walk. I ate 2-300 more calories daily than the previous weeks. I was trying to stay at 1200 calories a day but the additional fat pushed up calorie. My sleep has been pretty good. My macros in MFP summary of the week were 65/16/19 for the week. F/C/P.

    I'm so excited to see what happens in week 2!

    Erin, one other avenue. I had many of these symptoms (including almost crippling fatigue...I even stopped driving because things were so fuzzy for me) and turns out I had PCOS (I no longer test positive or take any medications for it). I saw MANY doctors, etc. before an endocrinologist found this. Changed my life (for the better) once I knew what it was.

    Erin-
    Depending on the naturalist you see, they might be able to diagnose you based on your most recent full blood workup, if you have a copy of the lab results.

    The cream cheese clouds are tasty. I went with 3 tbsp of maple syrup because I didn't want to buy Stevia. I don't think I beat the mixture long enough because they don't seem "fluffy" to me. I beat them till everything was very mixed and fairly creamy. I didn't have the patience to try to get it fluffy and I didn't want it to get too warm and end up creamy.

    I'm trying to figure out how to knock the white rice out of my lunches. I guess I need to start paying more attention to what you guys are eating. A coconut milk chocolate beverage in the morning might help me eat less food and get more fat, without losing calories.

    PCOS, insulin resistance and adrenal fatigue run together. PCOS could also just be called insulin resistance in women really. And insulin resistance will tear down those poor adrenals.

    It takes a lot of time for the adrenals to come back, they have so many jobs in the body it makes them slow healers. I recommend lots of sleep- take those naps when your body asks, it's wanting to heal. I like dr Wilson's adrenal stress formula and the adrenal c formula. I take a small dose daily. Getting into ketosis on healthy foods and making sure to get your salt in (Himalayan and Celtic salts are best) should be good for the adrenals because of the reduction in systemic inflammation and your adrenals won't be working to keep your blood sugars stable. However, the change into and out of ketosis are stressful, don't let yourself bounce in and out of it.

    NW, I haven't tried this, I am not a rice eater, but have you tried ricing cauliflower. I see it a lot around the low carb blogs. Also, maybe if you completely change what you eat you won't be expecting the rice?

    Does anyone already have that primal non-dairy creamer on their MFP and if so under what name? I made it, but have no idea how many servings it made and don't have the brain to do that math today!!!

    Thank you for the helpful reminder. I know I am shooting myself back into adrenal fatigue from over activity and bouncing in and out of ketosis (which I didn't consider). My schedule has slowed, and I am taking more time for self care, but this will help remind me to stay on track. I love all my Wonder Women!!!! Such good information from the Wonder Tribe (my new name for all of us Super Women!)
