what it also did for me was somehow balance my hormones. In the last 3 months I have gained 22 pounds without changing a damn thing, my acne and mood swings are back with avengence...so sad...I take bio-identical thyroid 250 mg a day for 14 years and just started on bio-identical DHEA 10 mg about 2 months ago...Any idea's??

girly, yikes aren't you afraid of the side effects of the hormones Justamente as being an AB nonnie And whats' about the thema of *virilisation* with DHEA I saw in nearly all my clients.( females) ..ok for the weightloss but they also became very similar to men.... meant here is bad skin, thick and rough and premature agings...wrinkles and other harsh traits.... even that it is declared as a form of antiaging product.... so far ok must agree here the secretors were merely prone for premature aging effects... but also the nonnies took their *packages* earlier...
Congrats on the weight loss!! I'd look into what is used in the Yasmin birth control pills and try to duplicate that naturally. I feel your pain. Putting on weight myself, hormones are all out of whack.....finding a dr or ND who can TRULY reign all that in, is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. I'm sure there will be others along w/ better advice.
Girly, Hang in there, the main thing is you keep on trying to solve each problem as it comes up w/ the diet being the deciding factor as far has figuring the supplements. Menopause is such a drag. Good luck.
Italy, I'm having the same challenges. Funny we're the same age. My biggest obstacle is where I live.

Sometimes surgery messes up the metabolism. A friend noticed that women who had their tubes tied had more weight problems. I bet that an exercise program would work. There are some ways to exercise that speed up the metabolism(different things on different days, etc.). Since we are learning about genotypes, we know that our genes can change & be reprogrammed. Maybe after you heal, you can figure out some way to program those genes. Best wishes!

So some of you may or not know the the BTD(especially pared with finding out that I am a NON-secretor) has helped me to lose 95 pound quite quickly..in about 7 months and had kept it off for 2 years UNTIL.....in June I went in to have my tubes tied and then stopped taking " Yasmin birth control pills" I went on them to help control mild acne and crazy mood swings but what it also did for me was somehow balance my hormones. In the last 3 months I have gained 22 pounds without changing a damn thing, my acne and mood swings are back with avengence...so sad...I take bio-identical thyroid 250 mg a day for 14 years and just started on bio-identical DHEA 10 mg about 2 months ago...Any idea's??
Wow. First of all, that is very impressive that you lost 95 lbs. I know from experience, although I've only lost 69 lbs thus far, just what an accomplishment that is. If I had a hat on, it would be taken off to you.
Secondly, we get to something I say in one way or another fairly frequently: hormones are a biznatch and a force to be reckoned with.* I'm sorry that yours have been thrown outta wack. Redouble your focus on superfoods, excercise, getting enough sleep and stress reduction.
Hang in there. I would take some CoQ10 daily, too. Awesome stuff, that.
* For me (and this is oversimplifying a little--but not by much), learning to keep my hormones in balance via an exquisitely choreographed dance of diet, exercise, sleep, stress-busting choices, etc. is what my "diet" is all about. It is all about keeping my hormones steady, calm, in balance. And boy is it indeed a delicate balancing act on a daily basis with ever-changing variables.
