Day 8 -- Our world is broadening!

Posted by Johnelle on March 05, 1999 at 10:11:56:

Good morning! With my leftover green beans sequestered from
the rest of my stash in the icebox, I tried beef last night
and an egg this morning, with no backlash. I am still
finding I have a lot of hunger, and an underlying thought
that, even though this website has taught me otherwise, just
a few Doritos would take that hunger away so quickly.
Luckily, I have lost my sweet cravings, which have been
haunting me since I was pregnant with my last child, 17
years ago!

Looking back over yesterday's strong body statement against
eating green beans, I realized all the symptoms were like a
concentrated version of the fibromyalgia problems I have ...
very interesting.

As an aid in determining my profile, I have all my female
organs and have very regulated cycles by using compounded
natural hormones. I am on Day 18 right now. My cycle
patterns BEFORE beginning the hormones were VERY irregular
from the time of my last pregnancy -- periods sometimes
every 2-3 weeks, sometimes 6-8 weeks apart. As time passed
I began to have a migraine when ovulating which lasted a day
or two, then it grew to 3, 4, 6, 8, 10+ days of misery,
tension, food cravings, till I developed a consistency of
being miserable from ovulation until DAY ONE of my new
cycle, which was a world of relief -- no headaches,
bloating, food cravings, and lots of energy. My worst days
were the last few days of my cycle, like a big creshendo
until I had instant relief as I started a new period.

I have remained somewhat hungry since completing the
initial testing. Any suggestions or insights, Bob?

Don't remember if I told you, but as I was in for the
testing on Wednesday I had to fill out a diet questionnaire,
which revealed something interesting to me. There was a
sentence to complete -- "In my opinion, a meal is not
complete without________."

My instant answer was MEAT.
Two WEEKS ago the answer would have been SALAD.
Two MONTHS ago it would have been BREAD.
Two YEARS ago it would have been CHOCOLATE!
So my eating habits and cravings have changed as I have
struggled toward wellness. (My fibromyalgia became
full-blown approximately two years ago.)

Will be checking back throughout the day. Thanks as always
for all the good support and feedback

Johnelle,

When are you hungry? Immediately after eating. After one hour, 90 minutes, 2 hours?

What do you mean by hunger? Lack of energy? Lack of sensation of fullness?

Let's see, probably all of the above, and the feeling is
emptiness in the stomach. I do not lack for energy. Could
it be C-RS causing this?...................

Johnelle,

Energy level is the thing to key on when testing different metabolic diets.

I know that you are not an Agriculturist but I've seen several EXTREME Agriculturists that complained "I need something to fill me up". Overeating is one of the big things that keeps Agriculturist from achieving metabolic balance.

After a few months they didn't complain about it any more.

It MIGHT be the candidiasis but it might not.

Bob



the candida makes me really tired, with no energy...

Just thought I'd contribute! I know we're all different, but in my experience, CRS would probably make you feel draggy instead of hungry!

Glad to hear you're coming along so well!
