artspooner, I get those messages from people on the outside too. Some of my friends/family always signal to me that I'm not eating enough! But I eat all the time, ! I'm a Hunter like you. Yea, I may look underweight to other types of people but then I've never felt better in my life. What I have are lean muscles on a small frame, and that's the "optimum me" as I call my physical body. I was very puffed up before thanks to the inflammatory food I used to eat. Not anymore and I don't regret a bit.


Most of the ones who make those types of too thin comments seem fat to me now.  I guess they wouldn't know the size a person is supposed to be since they're too big themselves. I also think we as americans have become too accustomed to big as normal.  Like you, I feel great and eat all the time. Sometimes I wonder where it all goes. But, then again,  I'm usually in constant motion througout the day running my business.  I'm 52. When I tell people that, they don't believe me.

And Mikeo, thanks for your suggestion of this hearty hunter breakfast. I tried it once and it was very filling. However, I later found out that buckwheat is an avoid for me. Otherwise it surely would put some extra meat on me


R u on a swami hunter diet or the book diet?

It's not strange.  When I eat good and my gut sticks out from eating good, I think, you're getting fat.  But by morning, that's gone.  But I'm really underweight also.  So...  I think it's just those little changes that are noticeable mess with your mind.  And looking back on your weight is probably messing with your mind.  Again, how do you feel is the main test I think.  

I don't feel good, and I look like it.  But that's a different story.  I don't mind being skinny, I just wish I had the energy and strength I used to.  If I did, I probably wouldn't give two thoughts to how skinny I am.

I don't know what all that is in my avatar. I just chose O non, hunter.

I'm starting to get concerned myself. Seems like the more I eat the faster I lose. I'm going for blood testing next month. Those pants in that pic are even looser and it's only  a few days later. I'm thinking my body has changed dramatically over the several years I had that virus. The new nurse practitioner  mentioned they were treating me for anemia while I was obese (260+).  I had forgotten about that. I would think that also would point to a parasite. I remember it did for me at that time. I'm thinking she mentioned it because I was telling her how I was trying to tell the prior doc it was a parasite of some sort.

I'm starting to think my body was starving (for nutrition) the whole time I was obese. And now it doesn't know the fight is over and is still reacting somehow. When I go back I know I'll be in the 130's. I'll have lost half of my body weight in less than a year.
Congratulations on the impressive weight loss!! It must feel really great to have halved your weight & overcome your ill health in a year??! However, I am wondering from your photo (since you are also expressing concern) if you might benefit from putting a bit more back on??!! Maybe it is the angle of the photo but your eyes do look a bit sunk in their sockets (no offence) It could be you need that extra nutrition you are not absorbing

You need to change that self talk to, "Wow, what a great meal.  I need to do that more often."

No offense taken. After being obsese for several years, I'll take (LR) people saying I'm too thin over that. And ANYTHING any LR'er says means a whole lot more to me than those who choose to ignore this lifestyle.

I eat as much as I can. When I get hungry again, I repeat.  If I try to over eat my stomach hurts. I guess I could down some wine and then pig out. But I'm not going to do that. I just don't like comments from people who choose to ignore this simple (LR) solution. They're just ignorant to me.

I'm still losing. Trying to add more calories. Cooking with as much olive and walnut oil as I can etc. I think I'm down to the 130's. I go back to VA tues for blood work. I'll ask them to weigh me then. My chiropactor says I now have arthriits in my left leg and it's giving me a noticeable limp. I reasearched anorexia and advancing arthritis is one of the things that come from that. But I'm not binging and purging. I eat a chocoalte bar every day on top of 2 meals. Just not hungry for more. But I'm probably undernorished as you said. I have LOTS of energy though. And I often see people skinnier than meyself.

Me too. Been there.... felt that. I don't go to traditional medicine clinics anymore unless for diagnosis purposes (to monitor my tumor growth.) Other than that, the BTD is my guiding star


I hear ya. I used to tell everyone about LR. But have backed off quite a bit. Just seems like a waste of time with a lot of people. Goes in one ear and out the other. I'd never give up on this lifestyle. I never did even when I was in the grip of that parasite or bacteria.  I think those things are precancers. And LR can only do so much.  I turned to Hulda Clark's protocols and other methods.

agreed.. traditional medicine is terrible. Modern medicine knows how to treat with drugs... and that's about it. How ridiculous.

But drug companies have so much power, who knows when the truth about healing with foods will ever be known


If the drug companies have their way, it'll never become mainstream. I watched Dr. D's interview from a past Regis show on  youtube. Regis made it into a joke. I was insulted for Dr. D.

Went back to the VA for blood work today. Weighed myself when they weren't looking. Lost another 7 pounds since Nov. 23rd. From 144 down to 137.  The chart in their office says underweight would be under 130 for 5 foot 10 inches. The nurse practitioner said " I don't go by that chart".  They have it hanging on the wall!!! I used it when I used to refer to myself as obese.??

Doesn't look like the pace of my weight loss has slowed much. At this rate I'll be at 0 in no time.

Do you have loose stools?  I'm wondering if the food stays in you long enough to be utilized?

Maybe I'm diabetic?  I do sleep a lot. I urinate a lot. I get irratable more often and sometimes feel as if I can black out when I get up too fast.   I do lift some weights in that I use one of those elastic curl bands daily and often.  But I've stopped for a few days to let my body rest. I'm also cutting back on walking for a period to see what happens and to give my arthritic ankle some rest.

The VA has sent me to a chiropractor for treatment of the ankle problem and the limp I'm developing. It's helping. He's a very good chiropractor and he educates.  I can already see my limp improving. It would kill me (as an O) to have to give up my walks long term.

I was supposed to fast for the blood work. But I had to eat some small pieces of turkey or I would have been too hungry by the time I got to the VA clinic. I hope that doesn't throw the tests off too much. Didn't eat much.

I do use nicorette gum. That is the only difference between me prior to all of this and now.  I found a brand that agrees with me and doesn't bother my sleep at all. Don't really want to quit using it. It relaxes me and is my only vice.

Seven pounds later.

Didn't really mean to hijack this thread. But I've figured out the limp part of the puzzle. After going over my xrays with my chiropractor, a light bulb went on in my head.  Although I didn't immedialtly have the solution, I knew my higher mind did. A few days later I realized the resistance band I was using since the bacteria broke was causing a pushing down effect on my spine as I was using it.

I've since stopped using that one and the pain and numbness in my left leg is quickly disappearing. Walks are now fun again and find myself walking longer and faster with hardly any limp.  That's what was concerning me. I lose 124 pounds and THEN I develop a limp and numbness in my lower leg, ankle and foot?  It didn't make any sense to me.  The discs he pointed out that were being pinched pointed right back to that excersize. This guy's a really good chiropractor and not at all the kind I expected the VA to refer me to.

I'm now a lot less concerned about what's going on as being bad. I'm upping my calories and eating every 2 hours, albeit small portions. Grazing as it were. Also turns out the pinched nerve in my spine was causing inconsitant bowel and urine function as well.  That is improving also. Getting used to and starting to enjoy being skinny again. I won't assume anything is wrong until a doctor can point to something that proves there is, since I feel great again.

From what I understand, the GTD puts your body at the ideal weight it should be eventually.  I am looking forward to finding out what that really is for me.

Maybe some of us are just meant to be skinny as rails.  I think how you feel is the best indicator though.  Not how big you are.

Blood tests  came back all negative. And my anemia is gone. I was 261 and anemic. Now I'm 130 something and no anemia. So much for traditional medicine. I think I'll just use the VA for mostly informational purposes and chiropractic adjustments and little more. They just threw iron pills at me for my anemia back then without caring why I was obsese and anemic.

I've picked up on my eating. But it just amps up my metabolism the more I eat. As I've said before, it's hard to curse the light when you've been in the dark for years. So.... I won't. :0)
