Sleep and energy
Last night I was fucking exhausted and went to bed at 9.30pm..! At 1.30am I woke up, full of energy, had a raspberry tea with sugar, and fell back asleep til 7.30am. And I had amazing energy today! I didn't take my Vitex cos' I wanted to see if it would last, and it did!
Which leads me to conclude:
- I'm chronically under-slept.
- Sugar is the best sleep aid..! Every time I try it, it works.
I went to my doc last week with all my results and told him my diagnosis. It was great!
He had been sure I was a hypochondriac that needed to go on anti-depressants, and when I told him that I was infertile with Oestrogen dominance, and all the symptoms, and how my life had turned around since i went on this treatment he was actually very humbled. He immediately signed me up for blood work. So tomorrow I get thyroid (TSH and T4), oestrogen, progesterone, prolactin, FSH, cortisol and cholesterol checked.
I also need to get another scan, because last time there was something growing inside my uterus (probably a fibroid) that needs to be checked out. But I forgot to tell him about that
Food, body, appetite
I remember a few weeks ago Gray said she was worried she's not getting enough carbs, and today I had that worry too! My appetite has been steadily shrinking, and since I cut down on my fruit intake (to try and help my gut), I think I might be low carb.
Today I ate:
B: Half a galia melon
L: 600gs LF cottage cheese, 300g blueberries, maple syrup
D: slice of edam, three boiled eggs, some seaweed, 150gs cottage cheese
With drinks, gelatine etc,. I'm hitting approx 1,600cals; F: 36.5; C: 207.4 (phew!); P: 142.2, and I'm stuffed. Like, uncomfortable. It's like this practically every day now... the only way i can get to 2K cals is if I pound coconut water.
Anyway, the reason I'm concerned is cos a little bit of my hair fell out.
- Go hell for leather with maple syrup
- Start the pulp free OJ protocol
I'm also still really bloated. No more than usual, but now that I've lost weight it's even more noticeable..!
Still in great form And anxiety is really low lately! Unusual for me to feel this Zen.

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
