  • I feel like such a f*#!ing fat idiot for trusting this "doctor". I really don't know what to say so thank you for all of your advice. I think I'm going to go to my regular doctor, show him the lab results and take it from there. Thank you again everyone. It's so sad that people you think you can trust are untrustworthy. I…
  • Thank you all for your input. What is a macronutrient and how can you subtract 1/2 of your carbs based on the fiber you eat? Does anyone know the answers to those questions?
  • I haven't succumbed to eating the sugary treats and I'm going to keep trying not to. I'm on day 5, no goodies. That was hard and having this shaky feeling is hard but I refuse to go through this hell again. It's like giving up smoking, if you ever had to. It is horrible.
  • Right now, I'm not on the steroids. I was during the winter because my asthma is aggravated by the cold BUT what you said is definitely worth keeping in mind so I thank you. I had interesting results from my lab work that I don't fully understand. One of the results is my insulin levels in my blood were low but my blood…
  • He's a naturopathic doctor. In my state, naturopathic doctor's can't write out prescriptions but he apparently can sell me products he believes are beneficial to me. I bought 18 nutrition bars, a bottle of natural thyroid pills and a bottle of organic Vitamin D.
  • Believe it or not, one thing I do have in my favor is I can eat all of the salt I want. I already eat way too much salt and am still within normal lab readings so maybe I need to eat even more because of this diet. I don't know. Maybe the carb deprivation will push me off the wagon again….I don't know. I get a lot of my…
  • I'm listening to all of your suggestions and appreciate them but some of them won't work for me. I hate yogurt, cottage cheese and drinking milk. The thought really makes me sick. The smell of yogurt makes me gag. I could be experiencing sugar withdrawals. I can't argue with that. I love sugar and I'm not eating any! The…
  • I don't know what the heck to do. When I ate carbs, they were frequently Triscuits, Wheat Thins or popcorn with cheese. Yes, I indulged in chips but I was never obese until this year and I sincerely attribute it to hormone imbalances, having to use steroids and my past bad eating habits catching up with me. I always kept…
  • You are right. Thank you. I know I can't eat the goodies anymore but it is really hard. Years ago and back in high school, I was bulimic….I would starve, exercise profusely and take laxatives/water pills. It's amazing I didn't die. I was 97 pounds and everyone said I "looked good". Excuse me for saying this but what the…
  • It is probably Paleo because I can't have any sugar, honey, agave, bread, soy/soy products but I can have lots of meat and fat. I sincerely feel like a wild animal eating all of this meat. Are you on this diet? Will I ever be able to eat like a normal human being again or will I have to be a carnivore the rest of my life?…
  • The carbs I'm eating are basically from fruit and vegetables. I can't eat legumes or soy products but I fell off the wagon this morning and had Hot and Sour soup. I truly forgot I wasn't supposed to eat soy until I ate it all. I'm still shaking though so I don't know what the heck is going on with my body right now.
  • So this hell I'm experiencing is called Paleo? Lol. I didn't know what the heck it was. Thank you. I started last week and fell off the wagon over the weekend when I had a Baby Ruth (so good), fruit and a whole bag of candy corn I forgot I had (Smores….they were good too). It is so hard to adjust to this. I've never been…
  • Have any of you felt exhausted from these types of diets? Have you ever been on a diet like this? I generally eat eggs, chicken, turkey and fish. For lunch I will eat salads and 1 piece of fruit then my carbs are gone just like that. I can only have 50 carbs a day so this is this is almost agony. Anyone that is overweight…
  • Its a low carb, high fat and protein diet. I think I'm in ketosis right now. I'm shaking, hungry and feel exhausted. I actually went over my caloric intake last night….it was almost 1900 calories and I'm supposed to have 1300. I have low leptin so I will always feel hungry. Are there any doctors on this site? Lol. Thank…
