Not feeling so good...

My nutritionist and I had a long talk. By looking over my meal plan, she said it was doing me more harm than good and said to walk away from FA for good this time. I will be going back to have my thyroid checked out to find out why I've been feeling sluggish these past few months. I sincerely thought it was my potassium levels but I am taking Yasmin (Ocella - Generic version) and this requires me to take a potassium test. The results came back normal.

At this point, I do not know what to do about my eating. Everything is in limbo.

She suggested I stick to a carb up/carb deplete routine until we find out what is wrong.

Thanks for reading.

Lora, I do wish you all the luck and blessings. I noticed you are having touph times deciding on which pathway to go. I have had those struggles all my life. And I can tell you from my experience that jumping from one diet style to another will deplete you both physically and mentally. I believe at this point that paleolithic way of eating is quite good. It allows to eat low carb version with unlimited fruits, berries nuts and vegs so you do not miss out on anything. But only those who are walking the road will eventually concur it. So keep walking but please dont jump from one extreame to another. I know its harr but I beleive you can do it. You are beautiful woman and I am sure a smart one. Take care and keep us updated.

Is Food Addiction about more than just finding the right plan for you?

I don't want to wind up like Britney Spears popping diet pills with red bull. :=(

FA does work for those that want be under supervision for the rest of their lives.

I want freedom to make my own choices but need help in choosing the right path. Set my straight and I'll do it.

Maybe you do have to be under supervision your whole life. If overeating is an addiction like any other life-threatening addiction, maybe you just do what you have to.
