Oh god that sounds painful... and a bit like an experience I've had before.
I take these Amazon.com: Now Foods Magnesium Citrate 200mg, 250 Tablets: Health & Personal Care. I have found that mag citrate in liquid form and in capsule form do nothing for me at best and make me bloated / crampy at worse. But the tablets work very well for me.
"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."

I'm not discounting your experiences, but I really think the form of magnesium is important. I've had bad results with forms other than the tablets. What were you taking Yoyo?
You can buy NOW brand at any health food store that also has supplements. Probably at Vitamin Shoppe? That's just a guess. The aloe vera I bought was also NOW brand.
CiCi I'm still laughing at "moldy nuts"
Lol, nice. I thought it went unnoticed. If you dislike Now brand aloe, Nature's Way is the way to go. I've tried several different types, and you have to be careful that you're getting latex & leaf, not just one or the other. Makes a difference!
No it was definitely noticed by everyone around me because I literally burst into laughter.
They didn't have Nature's Way where I went (not Vitamin Shoppe) which is why I bought the NOW brand but perhaps I'll return it. Thanks!

- 12am-7am. Woke up at 5:30 sweatingÖ Not quite sure why. Joints hurt a bit upon waking as well. Unusual.
- No significant crashes.
- B: Mango maple yoghurt
- L: 115g gf beef, herb and garlic goat cheese, 2 rice cakes
- D: small amount of each: carrots, yoghurt with maple, feta cheese, almond butter pumpkin muffin (so tempting and so good but stomach rumbling heartburn hell.
- S/D2: chicken tenders (cooked in coconut oil) w/ BBQ sauce (fine ingredients), handful dried strawberries, 1 rice cake
- S: couple slices of peppered turkey, 1 rice cake
Why do I enjoy rice cakes so damn much? They taste like salty cardboard. And why was I so hungry today?? My appetite fluctuations are pestering.
-Bloat: better than yesterday until my 2 dinners
- SUN! ~20 min on face and arms
Between the coconut oil and all the supps it's healing nicely.
I didn't have a single song in my head today.
You're not being bossy about it at all. That's why we talk to each other about things we've tried - to see what works and doesn't.
