Primal 90% from sept. 2012
looking to alter ulcerative colitis
Down another lb for a total of 18 lbs/8.2 kg at the end of week 8 of ADF, -4 this week. I didn't overeat like crazy this week despite a couple glasses of wine yesterday.
I am also not kind of in love with cooking in coconut oil. I love the viscosity.
Sending big hugs and sloppy kisses your way, and wishing you the best of health and happiness!
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
Thanks everyone! Its bizarre to finally be here after talking about it the last two years. I'm just hoping everything goes fine at my ultrasound in 2 weeks. It's really weird that today is supposed to be a dd and Im Not going to do it lol, it probably take me a few days to get used to not doing ADF. Like I said Im Still going to track and I did yesterday and I felt like I needed to get more carbs in( I shouldn't try to stay under 50 anymore right?) so I got 98 carbs and I was really nervous I was going to put on some bloat overnight because of it but I'm only up .4. I also gave up my morning coffee as of yesterday and I am missing it desperately! My goal for this pregnancy is to keep the weight gain under control. I gained 76 lbs with my daughter and I don't want to do that again! Especially since I am starting this pregnancy 20 lbs heavier than I was the first time!i think following the primal blueprint there's no way that it'll get that outta control again, that was at the height of SAD and being a fast food junkie.
High weight: 255 lbs
Start weight 1/26/13: 233 lbs
Current 5/24/13: 204 lbs
You can safely keep your carbs wherever you feel good. There is a myth about ketosis being bad in pregnancy, but all my reading for my pregnant clients shows that it is just a myth. Let me know if you want some links about this.
First ever post in these forums! I've recently started the ADD, and after 1 week have lost about 1.2kg (sorry, I'm not American so I don't know how much that is in lbs!). I've heard about the 5:2 version, but don't know much about how it works. Do you do your 2 fasting days consecutively, or do you split them up (say, Monday and Thursday)?
