  1. @BabyBear LOL definitely not on the liver! Capsules might be a good idea though and that's something nobody has suggested yet. I've booked an appointment with a naturopath/dietician that my GP recommended so I'll run it past her and see what she thinks. I'd like to not have to have iron infusions several times a year as per the current suggestions if there is another way to deal with it ongoing. I've been giving post whole 30 life some thought - I'm scared! What if I suddenly just go bananas? I don't think I will but it's still a thought. I've read and re-read the reintro info in It Start
  2. Day 28 Coffee with coconut milk Bacon, egg and vege scramble Homemade san choi bau with lettuce from the garden and avocado Day 29 Coffee with coconut milk Bacon, egg and vege scramble Pumpkin, sesame and cauliflower dahl with coriander Leftover san choi bau with lettuce from the garden and avocado Many days behind on the log but catching up on what I can remember. Still lacking in hunger a lot of the time but if I stick to the two meals I seem to be hungry enough to eat both of them. My Dr isn't particularly worried about this and is pretty happy
  3. Thanks @BabyBear for your support! I appreciate it. I'm still in roughly the same spot though but it doesn't feel bad. I'm just not experiencing a heap of hunger. I have an appointment with my GP this week anyways so I'm going to check in on the food situation and get their advice. I don't want to end up without enough nutrition going in. Part of the aim here was actually to get my metabolism going again. I'll check in with what she says and go from there. In the meantime... Day 18 Chicken soup Leftover bolognese sauce (wasn't hungry here at all but ate something, was very hungr
  4. Day 17 Coffee with coconut milk, banana with almond butter - trying to see if just eating something would trigger my hunger to come back, nope but I did manage to spike my blood sugar to the point of sweating and feeling disgusting with this meal - yuck Bolognese sauce with saute potato, sweet potato, broccoli and cauliflower plus a few olives Homemade chicken soup with zucchini noodles
  5. Day 16 (I keep getting them out of whack on here but I started 2 Jan so this must be 16!) My hunger is very happy on the 2 meals and a cup of coffee with coconut milk in between. I don't feel the need for anything else but I'm aware that this can't go on forever as I might end up missing out nutritionally. I'll keep tracking for another few days in hopes hunger comes back. I'm also going to up the exercise now that I'm feeling better and see if that makes a difference.

  6. Day 14 - still not hungry really at all. I can try and knock back the protein and fat portions to see if that helps but I can't go anywhere near eating the template size meal in veges. My meals might look light on in veg but because of my stomach volume I find it easier to cook a huge skillet of veges down into anything I make, that way my stomach can fit it in and it's not hard on digestion because they're well cooked. Then I have another veg or two as a side so I'm really unable to fit in more than that. I'm also adding at most one serve of plated fat per meal (sometimes none if I don't feel
  7. A little advice needed please? I'm on day 15 and I'm not hungry at all. I've been struggling the last few days with no hunger signals, yesterday I only ate 2 meals and I could have probably just had the one. Admittedly I came to this from a place of wanting to reduce hunger (I found I was hungry every hour and a half to two hours and was sick of it) but I think this maybe isn't normal? I feel fine otherwise so I'm definitely not sick in any other way. I am suffering through dizziness but I've had bloods that are expected to show low iron as the cause of that. I've been document my food in the
  8. I've missed a couple of days but I'll catch up yesterday and today that I can remember. Day 13 2 rashers of bacon and 2 eggs Leftover salmon BBQ pork and salad with avocado and baked potato Day 14 Egg scramble with bacon, tomatoes, spinach and homemade pesto No lunch as I was out so I just had some blueberries, almond butter, cashews and coconut while on the run. I'm finding im not very hungry or interested in food at the moment. I just don't seem to need it and each meal is taking me through at least 5 hours and even then I'm not really starving but I figur
  9. Day 9 Pork and fennel bolognese and a handful of olives Coffee with coconut milk and a handful of nuts, coconut flakes and blueberries Lunch Out - very scary but I did my best! Found an organic restaurant that had a primal plate - grilled chicken, smoked salmon, poached egg on grilled kale and broccolini served with olive oil basil pesto (no cheese - I checked!) This seemed like a compliant meal and I asked the questions I could think of but I guess I can't be totally sure? Anyone have any advice on this? Dinner - Pork and fennel bolognese with sweet potato mashed with ghee
  10. @heb2014 For what it's worth (and your experience might be different!) you'll likely need to really stand your ground and it might take more than one practitioner before you really nail a diagnosis and option for treatment. There are some, old school I suspect, who still refuse to acknowledge SPD especially as it relates to food - they prefer to write it off as a fussy child. I had this for years and was repeatedly told to starve my child to bring on enough hunger to break the cycle - even if it meant he ended up on an iv in hospital. He'd eat eventually. Needless to say this did not fix the i
  11. Day 8 The usual Zuppa with veg rice thrown in and then coffee 2 eggs scrambled with ghee and grated sweet potato, zucchini, capsicum and a half an avocado Handful of cashews, blueberries and coconut flakes at the movies to get me through until I get home for dinner Pork and fennel bolognese (packed with a full skillet of veg so I'll have a couple serves left over) on zucchini noodles with a half dozen black olives
  12. Summing up my day: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz I wish! 3 kids to see to. Got through it though. 40 Aprons Zuppa Toscana with cauli broccoli rice thrown in, coffee with a couple of tablespoons of coconut milk Leftover Shepherds Pie with salad including avocado Handful of cashews, blueberries and coconut flakes before yoga Potato fritatta with mixed veg (this was boring and I didn't really enjoy it which is making me feel bummed rather than satisfied and has me wanting to rifle through the cupboard and fridge even
  13. Hi Guys, a quick bit of advice please? I have a date tomorrow with my awesome 7 year old son (without his siblings so unusual and a bit special) and we're going to dinner and a movie. Of course he wants to choose the dinner spot and there will not be anything compliant at all! What would you do? The movie is at 5 and he'll likely choose to smuggle some fast food into the cinema as he has done in the past. We're going to the shops looking to spend some Christmas money beforehand and then the movie. I'm thinking I either have a mini-meal before we go and wait for dinner until we get home o
  14. I'll keep an eye on it. I often suffer with iron deficiency anaemia and this is usually one of the signs that I'm running low along with the tiredness. Probably bloods and an infusion will be in order.

  15. Day 5 down - not struggling as much with hunger but it seems to be fluctuating. That said, emotions have been rough today. I'm snapping like it's TTOTM and it's not even close. I'm also dizzy and tired. Expect this is all normal! Ill keep a track to see how it plays out. 40 Aprons Paleo Zuppa Toscana (i love a soup for breakfast!)
