This is my second cycle on IP the first was normal. Anyone else having similar issues?

It says in the info it can affect your cycle and for me, I was just about done a cycle when I started IP and the joy of my TOM continued on for another 2 weeks! The last cycle I had was also 17 days long (with spotting in between them)... I'm on PMS that never ends... poor hubby!

Have a wonderful weekend Ladies!!!
Thanks! I will definitely check it out. I usually use the Cozi meal planner (the menu section of www.cozi.com online calendar) because it's also where I store my recipes, but I'm always looking for a better tool!

Oh please give me strength!!!!

Totally normal. Estrogen stores in the fat cells, so as you lose it will be released into your body. It can result in longer, early, more frequent or late periods depending on how your body responds. Mine came 3 weeks late but I also have other hormone issues (Hashimoto's hypothyroid) so I expected weird stuff to happen.

I have only been on IP for a week and a half now. I have heard some conflicting things about sweetners. I know that Stevia or splenda is the sweetner we should use. But my question is...is there a limit to how much you can use? I here some say no and some say yes only 4 packets a day. I just want to make sure I am doing this right.

The thing to remember is that even "no-calorie, no carb" sweeteners still have SOME Carbs, but it's less than 1 carb per serving so legally they can label it as zero carbs.

You can use those sweeteners, but it's better to limit to a few times per day. More than six uses per day adds up to almost as many carbs as the lower carb IP packets.

Hey thanks! I may have to get into this century and get a phone with an "APP" but till that time, paper and pen will have to do for this chick. My hubby always wants me to "make a list" (apparently I have a shopping problem! LOL "Just a few items..." always ends up in a cart full! Hey! Can I help it if stuff goes on sale?? Anyway,maybe if I made my "list" and checked it twice, like Santa, I could cut down on having to make so much "fridge bottom soup" with all the leftover shrivelling veggies at the end of the week

I'm trying to do "new things" so made some rutabega fries today and will give them a thumbs up. Also made tomato soup flatbread and not sure what I did wrong, but Rainbow warned me it was very "pepto bismal pink"... not wrong my friend! You failed to mention that I might NEED Pepto after eating it tho! LOL

I'm gonna try to salvage it into a "pizza" tomorrow -- somehow. I bought a "herb and parmesan" spice that's /0/0/0 so maybe a sprinkle of that with a bit of chicken??... anyway, tomato basil soup "bread" is a "miss" for me. I think I should try a "mug cake" next to make up for this fiasco

I don't know if this would help if you're not peri-menapausal, but when I was having similar problems in my 40s I would rub a teaspoon of progesterone cream on my skin (arms, belly, any fatty area) daily and the flooding stopped as did the hot flashes. You can get it over the counter at any drug store.

I know you will meet and exceed that goal!

At my clinic you have to buy the whole box, but they have a large basket on one of the shelves wher people drop off packets that they don't like. Then you can pick up a packet that someone else dropped off. Seems to work pretty well, but I haven't bought a product I didn't like yet. Of course I'm that way with food in general. I ally should be more picky!

I tried a new recipe tonight - roasted radishes. And they were surprisingly good! Tasted a "little bit" like roasted potatoes. All you do is wash and quarter the radishes, toss them with a small amount of olive oil, salt and pepper and roast them on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. You can also sautee them in a pan on the stove if you want. They get soft and do kind of taste like potatoes.

Thanks so much for the information, I really appreciate it. It was just getting a little confusing with the carbs vs: net carbs.

Have a great Sunday and cheers to everyone who has had a weight loss and those NSV!!!

Also I tried the jicama fries, whoa they certainly do shrink alot when baking. Now on to the rutabaga gratin.
