    Souldanzer thanks for the info about the Folic Acid...I guess I won't stress too much then if I don't feel like choking down those 5 extra pills. Yikes. It's SO many pills!

    I hope I stop wanting to eat when it's dark out, that would be amazing! I just struggle with the fact that I'm surrounded by crappy food all night. Even though it's a co-op and it's "healthy" snacks, it's a joke. Everything is sugar sugar sugar! Just because something is vegan does NOT make it healthy! Ugh! I'm so over vegan/raw crap. If only we sold beef jerky....

    Yeah, I'm real glad I'm using mostly powders these days. Doesn't make a difference how many I stir into my supplement shot every AM and PM.... LOL

    You're doing the 1:10 with tyrosine, correct? Just b/c you didn't mention.

    I used to belong to those social circles and they're still not over the fact that now I eat animals. I had to leave.... wasn't good for my health.

    Yes, I am doing the 1:10 ratio. This cysteine is killing my stomach! Ugh gross.

    I just took it the first time today... doesn't seem to bother me? What does it make you feel like?

    It kinda burns going down and just makes me feel nauseous for a little while afterward.

    Today was a better day, worked out, went for a nice walk, and ate good food. I ate a little after my "dinner" which was at 4:30, but it's because i was actually hungry, so I felt like it was ok.

    hmm, I was a little nauseous today. I figured I might need to cut back on my out of control coconut oil consumption. I'll see how it goes tomorrow. Maybe take it after food or mix it with something?

    Yea, I'm going to try that. I can't do the cysteine in water, it's just too disgusting for me. Luckily I had some empty capsules so I just put it in there for now, until my tablets get here.

    What kind of coconut oil do you use? I just got some new oil yesterday, I usually change it up to try other brands. I got Spectrum unrefined this time because it was on sale at work. What's your favorite?

    Artisana........ hands down.

    Do you have vitamin c powder? I use that to cover up stuff that tastes unreal.

    It's 3am, and I'm awake. I was so exhausted all evening, but for some reason I cannot sleep at all. I went to bed 3 hours ago and I've been laying here. I was thinking it might be the supplements, but I had them all yesterday and slept well! What is my problem, I'm so tired!

    It took me a long time to fix those 2/3am awakenings. What else are you doing to fix your sleep (sorry, can't remember, so many people with this issue).

    I hate, hate, hate that feeling! Hope you get some decent sleep tonight! I have really worked on this, but I still wake up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I'm able to fall right back to sleep, but it still would be nice to sleep all the way through!
