Keep me posted, I am a little bit worried about how the rest of the week will go.

Ladies, I've said it before but it is worth repeating. The IP protocol is shocking your system back into place, hormones included, SO your period is affected as well. PLEASE use extra precaution (i.e. condoms) while on this program because the pill alone is NOT effective enough when doing this. Your periods will be weird for a bit until your body adjusts. USE OTHER MEASURES unless you want an IP baby ;-)

OMG!! I am so mad at myself that was just not worth it at all. Not sure what I am missing but This is the first time that I have had such intense cravings and I have been scrounging for food. Im going to try to start over fresh tommorow and just get back on track!! Has anyone else gone thru this??? I feel severe guilt. Im dreading standing on the scale at my saturday WI! Uggghhh!!
Add more oil to your diet... More omega 3s or a bit more olive oil, flax seed, or Udo's oil... we need it for our brain to feel satiated and work properly.

Are you working out at all? I am going to the gym again and walk on the treadmill for an hour at least and I can down some water then. remember one the time you feel thirsty you are already dehydrated, so even if you are NOT thirsty have some. Maybe ad some lemon to the water? There is also flavored Stevia if you like (I believe that is allowed)
