    Roast duck... yeah, there's FAT in that.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Dr thinks likely metabolic syndrome/insulin resistance.
    Thyroid was tested back in May and was in normal range, but he has requested that again.
    He took blood sugar levels, and was 8.4 (higher than 6.9 is high he said) after having only BP coffee 6 hours before. I am going back tomorrow for the fasting glucose test as well as the other blood tests.
    So yeah I guess something prob is wrong with me

    Girl, I got the insulin resistance, or as we call it in South the pre-sugars It is ok, no matter how you decide to treat it with food or food and meds.

    Ill see what these results say once I get them back sometime next week. Dr did say if glucose test was high, he would want me on Metformin, but will have to think about that one.
    I guess since I have been eating 100% primal since Oct, and I have this, maybe I do need meds?

    What would a woman with a medium/large frame at 5'4" chooose for a goal weight?
    I am 5'4" started at 225 and now at 173 I think my goal is 150. I have a very large chest DDD. I am also a large frame at 225 I had no idea where I wanted to end up but as I get closer I am starting to picture it.

    For people that have made the broccoli cheese soup recipe, how many servings tend to come out of it?

    I started back primal in Oct at 109 kg and it was only when going HFLC and counting calories for a little bit, that I lost some.
    I know I am not eating too much. Something has to be wrong.
    Good luck figuring out Ayla. Just read your post about the doctor visit. at least you'll know and can develop a plan to get it under control.

    Thank you.
    Potassium helps eliminate my leg cramps. avocado's seem to work well.



    About mid cycle bleeding. I have been having spotting midcycle for the last two cycles. My TCM provider says the better nutrition is improving my hormones and it's likely breakthrough bleeding. All other signs look good my hair is growing in and getting thicker, grey hairs disappearing, weird stuff.

    And I just want to say I feel like I just ran a marathon. I was away for the weekend and just spend the last three days trying to catch up on the posts. This is a chatty group. Don't know if i can keep up with the reading. Oh I did finally lose a pound between last week and yesterday. Finally.

    Oh, that test is not going to go well with you being on this diet. Even if your insulin sensitivity was decent you could see a bad result because it's going to shock your body. Your muscles become insulin resistant on a low carb diet (temporarily!) to cause all the sugar you do have to go to the brain. So you hit that with a big load of sugar and boom, blood sugar problems!

    A more accurate result would be found after several days of eating carbs again.

    Being committed to a group helps more, I think.

    I am so damn proud of you.
