Damn Jillian is scary!
I have found that the type of fat makes a difference in how you feel. Maybe Tomi's bloating could be from one of the fats. I know that when I eat too many almonds I bloat horribly. No more chomping down for me. That was NOT comfortable.
If your body is willing, your mind can push it to do some amazing things.

Have any of you read about insulin resistance? Have any of you been tested? I ask because it is a huge help to my mind shift. Once I realized that my eating habits had led to a metabolic issue wherein my body is unable to process glucose and needs to relearn to use fat for energy, then it makes more sense why I go up and down. It also helped me stay on course for over 50 days straight, because I am going to have to reteach my body. I can't give up when my body flounders, not knowing what to do. So I just keep trying to reduce sugars in my system, try to derive as much of my energy from fat/protein, and wait until my body catches on.
Admittance: I was on strict for 54 days, but was off the reservation (meaning yes, I ate sugar and grains, including wheat! the horror! ) for 14 days.
That article someone posted about the 20 mile walk is awesome. It talks about measured discipline. Starts, stops, and great risks take a toll and don't lead to success as much as setting goals and keeping to them for extended periods of time.
I am committing to 6 months of no sugar until July 4th. I'll beat this addiction yet! We all can if we just keep at it.
Kymma you can beat the sugar dragon! The extra fat really does help.
SMALL STEPS !!!!!!!
I know that some people have had huge quick successes, but thats not for all of us. And we must focus on the small things. I have been so disillussioned lately that I have forgotten how well I am feeling after years of being unwell. However you guys are making me realise that I have to celebrate the small things.
Keep at it all of you
