Happy Tuesday everyone! (I almost said happy Monday....I seemed to have lost a day somehow lol). Good luck on your WIs today! I hope the scale is good to you all.

I'm feeling very bloated and uncomfortable today but I'm not sure why. I have been 100% OP since starting and haven't been eating any foods that I haven't been having since the beginning. I started feeling a bit 'funky' last night. I don't think I'm getting sick....just feel weird. I know it's not my TOM as I had a full hysterectomy 3 years ago so I don't go through that any more. Oh and everything else seems to be 'moving' along just fine too. Very strange feeling. I have been suffering with severe back issues for the last couple of weeks but have been going for chiro and acupuncture every week and today my back feels almost normal. It's very odd

Good morning everyone! I started out my day trying maple oatmeal biscuits. Topped them with wf blueberry, a great start to the day.

Good luck on the WI's today.

Happy belated 50th Lisa, I hope you had a fantastic day!

Hi all. Working hard to stay focused and OP today. I'm just exhausted--my toddler hasn't been sleeping well. I'm really seeing that being so tired is making me hungry!

Thanks so much
I had a great weekend. Yesterday was actually a travel day but we had a great dinner when we arrived back in town. I splurged on some duck (didn't add my usual oils to other food). Just a small appetizer that we shared. It sure was yummy! Then had smoked meats on a bed of romaine.

If not TOM-caused, Sugar alcohols can cause that feeling. Any ingredients in bars ending in -tol? (Malitol, erythitol, etc)
I started using enzymes to help digestion. First from IP and now just Whole Foods brand.

Sleep deprivation gets to me every time! I've seen many people say on here: if hunger isn't the problem, food isn't the solution. So tiredness is the problem. Any chance you can sneak a quick nap?

I do take the IP enzymes, Omega III and anti-oxy along with the vitamins, supplements etc. You're probably right it's the sleep deprivation getting to me. I will try and have a nap when I get home from work. I've been feeling so good (except for my back) since starting IP so I can't complain....much lol.

Had my WI yesterday, lost 3 lbs. Yay! Is it standard to measure during WI? Fourth week, no measurements taken since first visit.

Happy with success, but it takes a daily commitment and long-term vision that this is my world for many more months.

I think every clinic is different, my clinic measures me every other week.

Is there such a thing as eating too much protien? I know someone gave the range for carbs in phase 1.. but is there also a range for protien?

I think i had a little extra yesterday... according to myfitnesspal anyway... but yesterday i was hungry all day... i didnt have anything bad.. but my hubby did make me edamame last night and i ate it all cause i was so hungry.

I have weigh in tomorrow.. and im going to get my meaurements done too as i think the numbers are going to be amazing to me!

Happy Tuesday everyone and good luck to all the weigh-ins today!
