    Philistine ... how much potassium and in what form? Did you also notice whether the swelling responded to physical activity? I think mine does. Swelling is more noticeable when I sit for long periods. Simple fix ... just gotta get off my butt more often during the day.

    philistine The more I learn the less I know

    I simply increased my consumption of avocados. In my case, that was enough. Although, of course, everyone's different.One or two avocados a day. I like them very much.
    Exactly. The moments I spent too much time sitting, the swelling increased more.

    @philistine You nailed that one. Avocados are one of my favorite fruits. I have one (or a half of one ... they are SO filling!) nearly every day. Now to get that movement going.

    BTW @JanSz: Although my ankle swelling goes up and down, it seems as though my nighttime/early morning leg cramps disappear when I simply take a spoonful (ca. 5 grams) of sea salt every afternoon. I went back on forth on this biohack a couple of times to confirm it.

    I have been using a magnesium cream on my feet and legs at bedtime ......no cramps.

    If I forget or just don't bother ....very sorry and wish I had!

    If I take too much magnesium, bathroom runs happen.
    I worry more about potassium. Even timing makes a difference.
    I take (per @DrEttinger ) two half-teaspoons of potassium bicarbonate a day (1200mg total potassium).
    Used to take one at wakeup the other going to bed. Eventually, it has not worked that well.
    Now I have switched one at noon and the other 6pm.
    Other words, moving the incoming potassium toward night time, but also giving it time to get into the system.

    DrEttinger Choice, the only thing we control


    FYI: I now take a full tsp at night because when I do it now upon arising it cleans me out. Before bed, I have no problem.

  8. A low-carb (or at least lower-carb) diet definitely has its benefits; but for many of us, it has its continuous challenges.

    I am beginning to think that a lot less protein and a little bit of carbs for a lite evening meal is a better way to go......???

  10. Follow your fasting blood sugar in the morning. If it stays below 92, you "should be ok".

    I think the issue might be that many eat more land mammals that seafood.....
    I wanted to post about it in my journal.. but I keep to forget. What a different mineral profile a seafood diet has in comparison to red meat. It is huge.
    Very interesting to take a closer look. :)

    And I now get it even more than before, why Jack says in his Epi Paloe rx, seafood should be the base of our food pyramid.......

    I now think, for me, it was all the red meat(its mineral profile and iron) that caused the overheating and other issues...
    I do not get those hot nights at all anymore... does not matter how much fish or eggyolks I eat.
    I just feel so good.
    I do try get in some carbs now too as it is summer. A little honey in my eggyolks, just half a teaspoon, some veggies, some berries... stuff like that. :) and of course.. chocolate! ;)

    I just re read Jack's blog "after the leptin reset"

    Now I am really confused ....Jack says, in that blog, to eat less protein for breakfast and more protein for dinner.
    I am finding that Protein [red meat] in the evening is too heavy and I feel very uncomfortable. I will try more seafood.
    I usually get hungry just before bedtime and that is not the time to be eating!

    I feel like I can't go to sleep if I am too hungry...

    Any thoughts?
