Progress Reports & Photos / Re: how fast have you all lost weight
« on: February 02, 2011, 11:16:56 AM »
I think the OP weighs less than 120 pounds or something, if I'm remembering correctly.

Three guaranteed front page articles in my city:1. EPA vs. King Coal2. Meth/Oxycontin busts3. Fat people getting fatterThe govt got a grant to turn railroads into awesome hiking trails over the river, and people bitched and whined and complained that black teenagers would use it to sell drugs. It's now on the back burner for another year in one of the unhealthiest cities in the U.S.

It might get smites, but I think that low-carbing without fake foods is a good way to ease into paleo, especially for very fat, inactive women  with a lot of weight to lose. Going from LC to paleo (for me) means giving up only 3 things: cream, butter, & cheese. Paleo is of course healthier than LC alone, but I needed the extra weight loss. (I lose more in a week on LC than in a month of strict paleo.)

Sadly, this could run as an actual news story where I live.I really need to move.

I try to keep mine under 25g a day, as I need to lose about 40 pounds. I also feel much better, but it takes a loooong time before I can do a vigorous workout at this level. I eat 1/2 cup of berries a  day.

Miscellaneous / Re: Fastest healing for cuts & lacerations?

I'd cut out the hydrogen peroxide - it's pretty damaging. I take extra vit C when I have a cut - my derm said C helps w/healing.And I use emu oil on anything that may scar. After it heals, gentle massage will keep a scar much flatter than a non-massaged scar.

I credit clean eating (even just low carb, 90% paleo) for my easy periods. No cramps, bloat, moodiness, sore boobs, etc. Have you been paleo very long?

In my case, about 20 days.At that point I get euphoric, then super-energetic, then settle down into clear-headed and tons of good energy.(My muscles are weak/sore for the first few months of any low-carb diets I go on.)

Exercises / Re: "Men's Health" physique... eating Paleo?
« on: January 23, 2011, 10:17:20 AM »
Men's Health also uses MODELS who are heavily airbrushed, just like the women's health rags. Even those dudes don't look like those dudes.And I agree that our bodies can only be manipulated so much. My skeleton is bigger than my sister's entire body. I'll never be as small as her & she can't build the muscle that I can.

Edit last post- just saw that you're 23. I'd just make an appointment. That's a long time to go w/o a period.

I know my hormones go crazy when I lose weight, but the opposite of your situation. (I'll ovulate every 3 weeks and my boobs get bigger.)If you have insurance, maybe have your hormones (estrogen, etc.) checked. If not, Planned Parenthood has free checkups. (I assume you're not very young or mid-40's, when perimenopause can cause months of missed periods.)

Yes, all sorts of bad living catches up quickly after 40!For example, I used sunscreen on my face daily for the last 20 years, and friends my age who didn't now have big nasty brown blotches and wrinkly lips. Diet and exercise habits will catch up with everyone eventually. I see tons of 50 year olds with the bodies of old men.

Diet and nutrition / Re: day 5?? i've lost count
« on: January 21, 2011, 10:16:14 AM »
I wouldn't focus on weight at all. My daughter is your  height & weight and looks very fit and lean. I'd add some fat and focus on building muscle - trust me, you want to get into the exercise habit now. I went into the military at your age & those years of training help me even now at 39. Other 39 year olds who did nothing but diet before they were fully grown have a much harder time.

Maybe a bit less fruit? My daughter's stomach hurt when she ate more than a few servings a day.

Magnesium supplements might help too. I'll take 500 to 1000  mg and get things doing again.
