    I am a newbie, and just ordered Dr Jack's book, so I have a lot to learn. A friend of mine told me about Dr Jack and CT. It helped him and it resonate with me, so I'm going to give it a try. I have tried everything else and have nothing to lose.

    I am a 41 year old male. 11 years ago I used to be an elite athlete until I came down with a flu-like illness and have never been the same since.

    I have been diagnosed with Osteoporosis, Hypercoagulation, Chronic Fatigue, and Fibromyalgia. My morning and daytime cortisol levels are low and my nighttime cortisol is high. My DHEA, IFG-1, Free Testosterone, and Progesterone are low and my Sex Binding Hormone Globlulin is high.

    I haven't had energy for 11 years and I wake up tired. I have severe muscle pain and can't walk for more than 2 blocks before my legs become stiff and sore. It is like they are filling up with lactic acid and it becomes unbearably painful. Same thing happens in my arms when I try to exert them also.

    For the past year I have been a raw vegan eating a lot of fruit. I also liked to juice and sometimes will become comatose tired after drinking juice.

    Even though I ate a ton of fruit all day long I was still hungry now I know why.

    I still need to educate myself, so I won't be posting again until after I read Dr Jack's book.

    Red, you are doing so great! But I am not sure the fish oils/Udo's is a good thing.... i guess better to get it from real food. Jack has said that many times.... you could screw up your fatty acid balance with man made oil stuff....

    Day 4:

    Today I sunbathed in the grass while naked. It was an amazing feeling.

    I also decided to put some ice in the bathtub while doing CT today. I went for 30 minutes.

    I started supplementing K2.

    Thanks Inger, Caroline and Lahelada.

    Yesterday I sun gazed while barefoot in the grass for 15 minutes and I sunbathed in the grass naked for 1 hour.

    After breakfast I did 30 minutes of CT with ice.

    Feeling down today. After 2 weeks of doing the Leptin Reset I have gained 5 pounds. I checked my blood ketones yesterday and they were only at 0.8. My meals are consisting mostly of a cup of broccoli/cauliflower and a cup of green leafy veggies with 10-12 oz of fish, oysters, crab, or clams with 2 tbsp of Ghee, and 1 tbsp of Coconut Oil, 2 tbsp of Kimchi, and 2 tbsp of salsa. Sometimes I do half beef and half seafood, but I am having seafood at every meal.

    Every day the sun has been out I have sun gazed with my feet in the grass. I am doing CT 1 to 2 times a day. I have been able to sun bath naked 10 times also.

    I have been getting to bed before 9:00 pm every night and waking between 6:30 am and 7:00 am.

    My pain and brain fog are worse, but I'm not giving up.

    Red, hang in there. Take your measurements as well. The scale lies..seriously. especially while on the reset it may be good not to weigh.it raises your cortisol levels which is counterproductive.

    So glad you are not giving up Red. Never give up ever. Sometimes it gets worse before it gets better.
    How was your EMF situation again? Are you able to live wifi free and low EMF ? Any smart meters, towers etc around?

    Yeah, do not weigh. Weight is secondary, healing comes first... i never weight anymore, but i love how my bodycomp has evolved on the protocols without any exercise. It just might take a while, the body needs to fix the most important things first, as it is clever, and it is not to get rid of fat ;)

    When you start eating a lot of sea food you get omega 3 which can displace the pro-inflammatory omega 6. This might be happening to you, hopefully it will get better as your body adjusts.

    Red I know the feeling same thing happened to me. My strategy. I got insulin resistance test and it was high. Started taking 1500mg metformin to reduce it. Tested igf1 and was low. Straight onto hgh at 2iu per day 5 days on and 2 days off. Once I did that the fat I was gaining on the leptin reset started to reverse for me. No harm in doing your own biohacking.
