    bpaynecos got a reaction from GoJo09 in Urge to jump on the scale, nervous not losing weight   
    YES! Me too. But I wonder how much of binging during TOM is just habit? For me I bet it's quite a bit. Just like how it was definitely a habit to eat lunch then hit up the candy bowl of a coworker because I "needed" chocolate. Not true!
     
    I have been drinking mint tea when I have a twinge of a craving. I think it keeps me occupied. Maybe give that a shot (and please god, don't tell me mint tea is noncompliant!)

    Thanks! Yes, my GI tract was a MESS 10 days ago. My naturopath actually tested my stool and found it was full of yeast. I have recurring vaginal yeast infections, so she thinks this is my issue. I haven't felt this good in a long time!
     
    I have not been counting calories in the last 10 days. Prior to going on this, I would count calories and eat snacks at 10 am, 2 pm, and then on the couch whilst watching tv. Oh! And drink two glasses of wine/beer every night. I haven't done that at all in 10 days. No cheats....
     
    I have had a few snacks here at there. (A larabar, handful of cashews). I know I can limit this more, because I find myself doing this even when I'm not hungry. BUT.... Compared to what I was doing, this is a huge difference. And I feel good (this is the longest I've gone without a yeast infection in over a year! Sad, I know, but I am amazed).
     
    Thanks for the encouragement!

    bpaynecos reacted to praxisproject in Eggs as only protein source- can I do it?   
    If you're willing to try other seafood, oysters and other bivalves are full of lots of important minerals.
     
    If you're eating loads of eggs, see if you can find a good supplier. It varies by area but I've found I can even get biodynamic ones, if I get them delivered.

    bpaynecos reacted to isap63 in Any vegetarian/vegan success stories out there?   
    First time poster, long time reader
    2 days ago I completed my Whole 30 as a Vegeterian, all home made food for entire 30 days, Only protein source for me is egg.
    I probably would have eaten around 15 dozens of eggs, lots of green veggies, avocados, nuts like macadamia, hazelnut for snacking, fruits like banana for prework out boost, sweet potatoes, home made ghee , coconut oil, olive oil for fats, It went absoultely fine and never felt tired or hungry. Only difference I saw was during the work out, the weight lifting time went down from 1 hr to 30 mins.
    During this 30 day period , I did not consume chicken, any meat, fish, legumes, dairy, soy, edamame, yogurt (any kind of meat is strictly prohibited in our house).
    On the 31st day , I went to the hospital and they took my blood for blood work. Will get my results in a week. No point in doing all this if we fail to get our blood reading, right ?
    Good luck for the veggies out there. Just get creative
