Wow, I'm glad I found this thread. I got this book from amazon a couple weeks ago and bought some of the foods needed. I have been doing this half hearted. I'm not sure I can go all out yet because I stay home with my 9 month old daughter during the day and go to school in the evenings. It makes planning and cooking meals hard. I do take the CLO and CO in the mornings. I have found a good way to take them is by chasing with a little juice. Don't take a breath between gulps. The smoothies are delicious and easy. I use stevia instead of maple syrup. I am researching sources for Raw Milk right now; I have found one that is organic, but I don't think grass fed. Isn't being grass fed very important?
Even though I haven't lost weight yet, one difference I have noticed (sorry if TMI) is that my libido has increased. Having PCOS and insulin resistance really messes with your sex hormones and I just never seem to be that into sex, but since I started taking CO and CLO, my husband is a lot happier, lol!
LunaLady: I'm sorry for your struggles. I too have insulin resistance and PCOS. It was hard for me to conceive; not quite sure what did it, I had recently lost 15 lbs on South Beach Diet and just started school so we stopped trying (very cliched, I know). One thing about your weight loss struggle; perhaps you are not eating enough calories, I know on the EFLF diet it recommends like over 2000 calories (which I struggle eating that much as well).
herent: I have not even told my mother about this! We fight about this stuff as well. She has struggled with eating disorders and has a very strong opinion about it being all about calories in/calories out, she drinks so much diet coke because "hey, it has no calories!" And she pushes me to give my daughter cheerios or other foods I don't want her to have yet (or ever!)
Have you all read the chapter about the Healing Diet? It was fascinating, especially because it has a section about insulin resistance and PCOS.
Wow, my reply seems to be all over the place! One more question, are you ladies exercising too? Those of us with insulin resistance, I believe exercise is so important for our weight loss and I am really trying to do it more. I go twice a week now to the gym, but I would really like to go 4 times a week.
