Hey Lizzie

I know this is not to be a weight Los plan, but still losing here.

151.4

I think LR has helped "fix" my hormone/thyroid issues that have been causing the weight to drift up there. May be able to get back to my low from last year before I started seeing all of the symptoms kicking in.

I feel great too.

Sleeping well most nights.

No hunger now (took a bit, but worth it)

Snack monster is tamed

Calmer....and I have a stressful job...calm is good!

LR

Curious about this plan. Reading up on my metabolism and the LR seems to be a key to it all, esp after 20+ years of dieting in some form or other. Going to see what I can find out. Is there a "LR for Dummies" thread? I'm looking at the one linked on page 1. Thanks!

I copied this from a post Kerry had on the other thread:

The basics:
- Eat at least 50 grams of protein breakfast within 30 minutes of waking
- Allow 4-5 hours between meals
- Eat 3 meals a day, paleo or primal diet
- Keep carbs at 50 or below (25 if obese)
- No snacking - black coffee or tea OK but no cream, no calories
- Allow at least 3-4 hours between dinner and bedtime
- No aerobic exercise or weight lifting until LS (leptin sensitivity) is re-established, walking is OK


That lets me out . I just got back into exercising, and lifting weights in particular. I really don't want to stop doing it, as it's taken me ages to really ramp up and make it part of my life again . Bummer!! I may do the BAB for a little while and skip snacks (not a big deal to me). I will keep my coffee (w/ cream) for part of my bfast, not a snack though. I'm not primal or paleo, but do tend to eat as much whole food as I can. I was hoping for info on the sleep recommendations. I could use that I think too .

I'm not paleo either. Like you, I try to keep as natural as possible.

What about the sleeping?

I think while doing this, the exercise isn't good for you. I think it is too much for the body. Maybe someone else can explain better. JK explains it in his blogs.
Let us know how you are doing with it if you do this.

I'll start w/ bfast and the time space between meals and see where that goes.

I thought someone above mentioned something about melatonin, darkening hte room, etc. A lot of the metabolism research I'm doing RRARF, RBTI, etc. have a strong link to rest and sleep too.

Lots of pieces to the puzzle, I'm sure. But, I'm finally at "goal weight" more or less , and want to be able to stay here, healthy, and active/fit w.o having to watch every morsel of food I consume. Shouldn't that be possible? I'm not quite sure yet .

Hi Kitty~

I take Melatonin. I have for many years. I take it around 8p every night. It has to be taken a couple of hours before going to bed. As soon as I lay down in minutes I am asleep. Most times I don't even know when DH comes to bed.

I use to lay in bed for hours wishing for sleep. Not anymore. And I wake up feeling wonderful!

Have you tried that and a sleep mask?
We have NO lights in bedroom. Not even a tiny one.....

Oh you mean in the whole house. I tried to get DH to let me do that and he had a fit! he thinks if the place is not lite like a street light a spider will get him! He is so fobie about critters! I just take my M and go straight to sleep.
Being in this bus makes him even more fobie about spiders!!

In my avatar pix you see me standing. Look behind me and you will see the back of his curly hair. He has his laptop in his lap. Today his hair is longer. He keeps it in a ponytail. To my left is a plant light. That light and the 3 strip lights light this bus up like a street light!

This bus is small too. To my left is a chest freezer. To my right is the front loader washer and dryer. Walk straight ahead and you are in the (kitchen/bath). A couple more steps and you are at our bed and the toilet is on the right and the fridge is on the left. Thats IT!
My grand daughters freak out every time they come here. One walks straight to the bed and says UGH! How do you sleep so close to the commode grandma. I said well sweetie it is clean enough to set your plate on. LOL She almost gagged!

If I don't get out of here soon I am going to burst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
