Hello Jeanie and Kitty
I have re-commited to leptin reset 3 weeks ago and I am felling great on it. I need about 65 gr of protein in the AM. I have lost 7 lbs since starting.

Yay Marika!

I felt great on it, but got away from it sadly. Need to get back there.

Kitty- get back on track and you will fell great in no time.

I forgot to mention that I am doing JUDD along with leptin reset. I tried JUDD before and could not stick with it. The leptin reset breakfast makes all the difference now.

I am starting to freeze in the cooler weather. That's a sign my leptin is not reset yet (I read it can take 8-12 weeks), or perhaps it is very low carbs that keep me cold. I am literally freezing when is 50 degrees. I can't even imagine people doing the cold therapy recommended by Dr Kruze.

I need to find which foods will work best for me as far as satiety. I also want foods that I can quickly prepare and eat before work. I had a protein shake today and it is not holding me very well. Part of the problem I think is my cravings and hunger are out of whack due to having too many carbs the last few days.

Jeanie- you are right, you need to find the right food, something that you really enjoy (since you will be eating it in the morning). Probably having something prepared the night before can be helpfull. I like to have leftover salmon (sometimes with homemade mayo) or with couple of fried eggs. I also make ground lamb patties in bulk (I make these with some indian spices, ginger, garlic and onion). If you don't like lamb, you can make it with ground beef. Leftover turkey breast that I bake in the oven also waorks great. I think the key is to eat something tasty. Sometimes I am forcing myself to finish the breakfast but I keep remind it myself, that the breakfast is my medicine.

I know those carbs are monsters and it takes few days for them to leave the system. Just bombard them with some proteins!

Jeanie- when I re-started leptin reset 3 weeks ago, I started with BAB at 60 gr ptotein. I think that made all the difference. I did slip one time and I thought I have to start over, but it was just one evening and next morning after BAB I was back in control.

Did 64 grams this morning and was good for almost 6 hrs. I even managed to gag it down within 30 mins of waking!
Marika- How many carbs do you usually eat per day? Do you limit your protein the rest of the day?

Beautifull Jeanie!!!
My carbs are anywhere from 0-20 gr a day. Most days I am having no carbs at all, as I am not hungry. I am sure when I start PMSing I might need more. I am just listening to my body. If I feel like having an apple or go for it. I usually have 20-40 gr of protein as my second or third meal. Most of the times I just eat breakfast and late lunch. Before leptin reset I think I used to eat much more protein and was needing more carbs. Right now I am about 100 gr of protein a day.

Got in another 65 gram breakfast-basically just a protein shake w/3 scoops of protein powder and pumpkin. Lasted me pretty well but am just feeling off today from this hot flash problem and sleeping poorly.

How is going with you Marika?

Hi Jeanie! it is going well. Today is DD and it is much easier than UD. Sometimes eating less is easier. I was up 1 lb this morning. Don't know why, I am not worried (it could be TMI issue or some water retention).

From reading posts on jack kruze websites, some people report they do better with meat/eggs/fish than with protein shakes. Maybe try to have whole protein, if you can; and have the shakes when you are short on time. Something to think about it.

Oh, those pesky hormones

Hope you are doing well Marika and Kitty.

I am tired of trying low carb and failing. I do not like low carb foods anymore, so it is never going to work. I need to find a healthy plan that I can live with.

Jeanie- I know how you feel. Please don't give up before you give the leptin reset a fair try. It works!!! Maybe you can try some new recipes, or perhaps add lots of veggies to your diet? 30gr of carbs a day on leptin reset is pretty decent, believe me I don't even need that much anymore.

I just can't get motivated. I have been at this for three years now and only briefly reached goal back in 2010.

A good LC day!

Jeanie, give it a try. It worked for me before when I was stalling. It also improved other areas. I even started doing some of the cold showers, etc. it was making changes. Lowered my thyroid meds and I believe this is why. Hang in there for a while. Hugs

How are you Kitty?

I know Jeanie is dong atkins 72 now.

I slipped for 2 days and gained 1.5 lbs. I have dicided to do straight forward leptin reset without JUDD for time being. I am feeling my best on LR. Calories naturally staying lower on most of the days. BAB really supresses my appetite.
Yesterday I ate at 8 AM and then again at 3 PM and nothing for the rest of the day. So lookes like I am doing IF as well on most days.

Haven't done well....the addictions kicked in...fighting it here. Being sick and stressed doesn't help.

I do/Feel best on LR too. Need to get back there and get it together.

I know that eating crap made me open to getting this stupid virus and not getting over I fast. LC really does help the immune system!

I will beat this thing tho!

Hi Kitty, I had a really bad week and put on back bunch of weight, but I am on leptin reset for the past 3 days and feel so much better. I went crazy with carbs thanks to whicked PMS.
ITA that eating off plan makes out immune system weaker. Hope you feel better soon

I am committing to a full 30 days of the reset with the BAB beginning tomorrow 11/6. I am going to set my alarm clock and get up a bit earlier so I can eat, usually I just grab coffee and go. So 11/6-12/5 is what I am shooting for and will then evaluate how I feel.

Getting through my breakfast right now, not enjoying it at all, but I know it will get easier. Terrible reflux and overheated last night which led to poor sleep, so today should be fun, back to back conferences with parents today until 12:30. I am sure I won't workout today.

Jeanie- how much protein are you shooting for for BAB? Try to eat your favorite protein for breakfast, something that you really enjoy.
I just finished lamb shoulder chops that were cooked with garlic powder and marjoram
Maybe in the your afternoon meal you can have some carbs? I am thinking of having some butternut squash.
Best of luck with the conferences!

Thanks for the link Marika-will definitely be reading that!
Today has been good my breakfast about (65grams protein) lasted me 7.5 hours! I had dinner and fell asleep for about 45 minutes, it is rare for me to nap but I was exhausted from being awake a good deal of the night. Heartburn is still bothering me today, so I took some apple cider vinegar and some heart burn meds. Hopefully this will get better as the days pass.

Glad you had a good day Marika!

How is going Kitty?
