Cici, the good news is you no longer smoke. Working on eating healthier is the fun part because the food we eat tastes so good.

DH has been in and out of the hospital 3 times for a 5-7 day stay each time. I planned my food so that I wouldn't have to restart after it was over with. Currently, he is in a local hospital with a headache that rated a 10. It turns out it was a reaction to a med he was put on when he was discharged last Sat for afib. First stay was for surgery which was successful. Now he just needs to recover from all the drugs he has been on this week for the intense pain. I had to escalate my hypothesis that it was a drug reaction because they gave him every test under the sun looking for the cause exception the most obvious. Within 18 hours of staring the med, the headaches started. Within 24 hrs of stopping the meds, the headache started changing cours. He said it felt better. They tried to tell me that headaches weren't listed as a side effect for this drug. I told him it was on the printout that the last hospital gave me when they discharged him.

But through it all I didn't gain or lose and stuck with the deliciojs food I have come to knkw.

Can you refresh my memory on the GABA dose and timing. Just curious are you hypothyroid? I am going through meno and having severe hot flashes (so many in a day I lose count) and have periods where my anxiety level is high for no apparent reason, I thought it may have been my wellbutrin increasing the anxiety but after going off of it for about two weeks I saw no change other than I was getting depressed without it.

Anyone go through menopause naturally? I am so miserable with these hot flashes. poor sleep and anxiety. I have always said I wanted to go through the change w/o hormones, but I don't know. I think the fat loss may aggravate things as I believe I have heard that when you are losing weight you are also losing estrogen stores??

Hope everyone had a great no binge day.

Binge free 1/7 for July 14-20 challenge



Binge free for 7 days prior to challenge
I have been binge free for 7 days, but feel better for the sake of the challenge to have one week goals for now.

Hi Jeanie
I believe I was taking 500 mg of GABA per day.

Regarding menopause I have terrible hot flashes also too many to count but the most frustrating thing is that they are painful I think what I'm feeling is the vasodilation but I can only equate its to pins and needles when your foot falls asleep. I get that feeling thru my entire body right before the flash. It literally hurts and often causes me to say ow! I have researched it a bit and I'm not alone with this but nobody has any answers. Seems to be related to fibromyalgia but I don't have that so

I did try over the counter stuff and even went so far as to true hormone therapy which was actually helpful but I just don't like the idea of taking them so I have resolved to stick it out.

I am doing fairly well. I have had a twinge of an urge, but I think it's because I backed down on my chromium and l-glutamate. I try to stretch my supplements further but in this case I don't think it's wise.

I sort of went through menopause naturally. When I started Atkins in 2001, I was 52 and just starting menopause. I was on meds for depression, anxiety, ADD, panic attacks and a cpap for sleep apnea. When offered hormone replacement, I declined. I told them I thought I took enough meds.

After being on Atkins about 18 months, they started to reduce the meds because many of my emotional symptons were leaving me. The sleep apnea cleared up. No more cpap machine. Today I just take wellbutrin and ambien-CR.

I never was one to research menopause, just figured it is what it is. Sometimes I still get hot flashes. I can sleep in my birthday suit with no covers while DH has on socks, flannel pj's and a shirt. I guess I adjusted. I do eat soy products in place of dairy, but not excessively, so I imagine I pick up some estrogen from that. I am 65 yrs old. The biggest thing for me that went away after 5 years into menopause were the monthly migraine headaches. They are gone. And that made me very happy.
