I'm not sure what's going on with me honestly! I find that if I have more than 2000mg of sodium a day I'll start retaining water like crazy... it's got to be the sodium, because it's happened every time I've had higher sodium days and it seems to begin clearing up right after I drop it back down to the 1000-something range.

Right now I'm taking one 99mg potassium supplement, just to help out with my normal diet because I figured I may need some. I don't eat REALLY potassium rich foods very often at all (sometimes, rarely, avocadoes... but never bananas or coconut water) so it seems like I may be lacking a bit. It'll be a bit before I can actually see someone to run labs for me though, so this is all careful speculation on my part mostly... that and I saw people on here recommending I take magnesium, potassium, and calcium for women's issues as well
If ≤2g of sodium was not enough and your body was shedding potassium because of it you should experience cramps in your legs and maybe hands/fingers.

Your doc knows that you are LC? You should mention the sodium/potassium thing on your next visit. Hopefully the doc isn't antagonistic about low carb.

And crosscheck your meds before adding any supplement for sure.

Kent Altena at Atkins Diet Geek is a marathoner and the only thing he uses is electrolytes. No GU or anything. He's always more than happy to answer questions too. Nice guy. Just google his blog or look him up on FB.

Congrats on all the losses, y'all! One time it's actually appropriate to be happy for someone losing something. Hehehe

Well, I was pretty danged skeptical when the guy said it. The context of the conversation was his assertion that he was NK and keto-adapted (after just a week or two I think) but was using carbs for an energy source. I said that isn't NK. His rejoinder was, paraphrased, 'yup it is in the Performance book'.

I'll see if I can find the thread.

I have been taking 450 mg of Magnesium at night. Last night I had the bright idea to add another 225 mg pill(so 675). Bad idea. My tummy woke me up an hour later.
Wonder if I should still try to slowly increase my dosage or just stay at 450?

In the back of my mind, I'm wondering if the running I've been ramping up lately has something to do with the fact I seem way more tolerant to carbs lately?

Also oddly enough, I am not at all hungry this morning. Usually by this point I've had coffee, bouillon with cream, and bacon and eggs. Not so hungry though, bringing the chicken broth with my on the commute to school, and an ounce of macadamia nuts to get me through the day before I get home at 6:30 this evening.

We will see.
Hmmm. Okay - so over the past few days my friend and I - both doing NK - cheated big time (someone asked if they could store all their easter candy for the kids at my place, I said sure why not I would NEVER cheat. My other friend came over for a movie the next night and I mentioned the candy and that was it - we were both toast. :-/). We cheated a LOT - candy one day ( we replaced it the next morning lol - kids are going to be fine) and then griddled ciabatta the next day, and perhaps some fries (yikes) and I'm sure I'm forgetting other stuff.

Yesterday we were both perfect on NK...and yesterday afternoon I realized my tummy felt a lot trimmer...no bloat which I have had for a week or two. I looked in the mirror and my face looked slimmer too. I asked my friend if she felt slimmer after the cheat and she said she was going to ask me the same thing!!!

So then I come on here to see if anyone has had this happen and I saw the post above.

Why would water weight go way DOWN after cheating?? I can't tell if I have stayed the same (unbloated) or not today...maybe a little up again but not sure.

I experience this same phenomenon when starting out NK or Atkins...I lose a ton of water intially and then even though I am not cheating (I don't even have dairy and only use liquid stevia occasionally and only carbs are veggies and less than 10carbs of those, make my own sausage etc.) I find the water weight creeps back up again and/or I stall.

I don't weigh so not sure what happened weight wise...I do measure but not often enough to see what happened over the past few days.

Thoughts, anyone?

Nuvaring has no interactions with supplements, and Levothyroxine I'm supposed to take two hours outside of anything else... so basically no supplements two hours before, and none two hours after. Other than that, I'm okay and even then it's an absorption issue to where the Levo wouldn't be absorbed fully along with other things... and honestly, I'm perfectly okay with that because it's killing me anyway I'm trying to get off of it in favor of NDT currently, but on a LONG wait to see someone who'll prescribe it! I do take all my supplements away from my medicine though, just to be safe

My doctor does know I'm LC. I told him last time I was there everything I cut out, and everything like that and he seemed supportive of whatever was going to help me be healthier which was nice. I do plan on getting some blood tests done to check my levels of different vitamins and minerals, so I'll definitely bring it up... but as far as any sort of muscle cramps, I've been completely free of that since last summer (which was when I was eating VERY poorly and drinking profusely every night ). I've not had any of the induction flu type symptoms a lot of people mention when they're needing sodium, even when I'm closer to 1200mg per day. No muscle cramps, no headaches, nothing like that. So maybe I'm some sort of NK anomaly?

Dunno why water retention didn't happen. Perhaps it takes a consecutive series of high carb cheats over the course of a day to trigger water retention.

The worst thing about a high carb cheat isn't the possible resulting water retention, it is that the cells switch back to expecting glucose for fuel and the adaptation to using fat for fuel has to be redone by the cells. Depending on the nature of the excursion it could take 3 to 5 days or the full 2 to 4 weeks.

I wonder, too, if there isn't a lag time between carbing up and the consequences of it as far as craving carbs a day or two later. Or satiety. Or general feelings of well being.

When I carbed out on a 16oz bag of almonds I did have some serious cravings for more carbs a day or two later. The only thing that saved me is that we really don't have non-wheat carby stuff here and wheat makes me sick so it is not much of a temptation.

Something else to consider is your calorie deficit when you carbed out. Few people maintain a reasonable deficit. I keep mine reasonable but I eat my calories hungry or not. Most people have a huge calorie deficit intentionally or by eating to satiety on an eating plan that stifles hunger signals. So the calories from the carbs are used up with zeal by a body otherwise perpetually starved for energy.

Another interesting thing is insulin sensitivity. LC restores it. So it could be as simple as your body handled the excess carbs the way a person with a normal metabolism would have handled it.

I take 800mg to 1000mg daily Cheryl. It is the oxide version so the actual amount absorbed may be way less. If you do up your dose go slow or stock up on magazines for the bathroom heh.

When I had a cheat day a couple weeks ago, it took 2 days for the water weight to show up on the scale and another week for it to go away. I ate 160 g carbs and 1700 calories that day, so while it was high in carbs I didn't go crazy on calories.

You make a good point about insulin sensitivity. I've read posts about people feeling miserable after a cheat day, but this did not happen to me. Maybe part of it is that I can tolerate wheat fairly well.

Yeah - intuitively I feel that maybe the body drops water to deal with the cheat, but there is no denying you pay for it sooner or later! Happy I was able to get back on board...good lesson for me though...never ever cheat because a) you feel like crap and b) it will lead to more cheats every time. Took me a day or two of intense focus to stop the cheating trend, and I thought I was solid! :-)

I have recently switched to the citrate version because I read it was the better option. That probably had some to do with it.

I take two citrate capsules at night too. I had read to use that kind from the Protein Power book.
Maybe you just need to get used to it?

Hm, I think for me its the delayed water retention response. I definitely feel bloated today, and I'm almost positive the scale will be up tomorrow.

I didn't drink much liquid after eating the yogurt last night, so it makes sense that I didn't gain water weight. I didn't have any extra water to hold onto last night.

No, I haven't. I need to pick it up, but I'm afraid I am way too busy this semester to read it with classes.. maybe in the middle of May I will get around to it when I head home to NJ for a week to see my family.

Also, I have issues with considering myself a real "athlete", so I don't think I'd believe much of the book applied to me.

I haven't read it but if you do any consistent exercise routine I think the book has content of interest for you.

You could buy it and up your magnesium doses to free up some reading time.

I've weighed myself before bed and after getting up and I've seen at least a 7 pound shift over night with bathroom trips and the normal moisture loss that happens when you sleep.

Today was slightly lower in calories, mostly because I didn't have my first meal until noon. I haven't been hungry in the morning the last 2 days, which is kind of weird because I usually stop eating by 6:00 pm. The fasting period between dinner and breakfast is getting longer.

Breakfast - coffee with hwc
Lunch - tuna and egg salad, baby spinach

Also, I have issues with considering myself a real "athlete", so I don't think I'd believe much of the book applied to me.
I really like the book. It's like the Cliff Notes version of Art and Science of Low Carb Living. It's an easy read and fairly short.

Had a pretty good day today! A bit higher in calories than I'm used to, but I'm hoping since they're from fat instead of carbs and protein it'll be alright

Here's my totals for the day:

1540 calories, 136g fat, 69g protein, 10 total carbs, 1740mg sodium, 2g sugar

79% Fat | 18% Protein | 3% Carbs
