I know I've struggled with thyroid issues, but haven't taken armour...maybe should have. Any way after 5 weeks of strict following of this program found me not losing a pound. Went on a 3 week vacation, being away from the home in another part of the world, eating whatever, and I didn't gain a pound! So, I'm seriously wanting to do a complete blood panel of hormone, thyroid, etc. only have no insurance and the closest lab corp is 110 miles away. Any thoughts or suggestions would be wonderful!!! Thanks!
Didn't Pearl mention something in her chapter on hormones about LEF having some (I think it's Life Extension but I could be wrong) I thought she said you can order some panels yourself but I think they can be expensive. You may wanna recheck on that though because I don't have my book in front of me and don't have the greatest memory
have you tried the interval workouts? they create human growth hormone. if you want to read more about that you can search peak 8 on mercola.com and he sheds a lot of light on the subject. just mentioning in case it can help. the peak 8 really helped me. i hadn't shed any weight after baby #7, actually i gained! and that was without eating sugar, bread etc. once i started the intervals (only fast walking and 4 rounds, 3x week) the weight started to drop quickly. and that was before implementing th mama (i was eating a similar way just without the whole knowledge of the carb/fat insulin business).

Bryony: New to this posting thing, hope I am doing it right! Been on plan about 2 mo, lost 17 pounds. Still wearing same size clothes but more comfortably. Which is all good. Question though - has anyone else had problems with loose stools?

steffanie3: Hi Bryony As your body adjust to coconut oil, mct oil, or xylitol loose stools can happen. If you have added those or more of those recently you might need to cut back a little and work up Congrats on the 17 pounds, that is great

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?
Nov 18, 2014 22:06:22 GMT -5
steffanie3: Hmm, on the upper right as long as you are logged in there should be a reply button, but you sure can start a new thread if you want

grammalynda: I figured it out-when you do a search it takes you to the conversation-there is not a reply button-but the name of the thread is listed above the date and if you click that it takes you to the thread and the reply button. thanks stefanie3 and rebekahrl
