I started with canola oil at night before bedtime and in the morning and my appetite was immediately suppressed and I lost three lbs in about two weeks. But then I noticed that I was getting a low blood sugar feeling and would get hungry in spikes. I was craving the oil. So I switched to ELOO just at night and did that for a week and have sometimes tried fructose in water at night (I am afraid of doing sugar water during the day because of the blood sugar dips). I also increased the ELOO and have begun taking canola at the same time. The taste of the oil has never bothered me at all , in fact I like it. I have even gotten up in the middle of the night to drink the oil!
Since Seth says that's a problem, I'm worried.
Even worse, in a month I lost 3 lbs and then regained them all again!
I do think I am eating less and more healthily but no good results on weight loss.
Re your post about women who are close to their BMI, I am 5'2 and now weigh 160 lbs, which is where I started. I got down to 156 on this diet for one day. According to most estimates, I am obese. I do have big bones and strong muscles so I consider myself overweight, not obese, but I am nowhere near my correct BMI, which should be around 140, I think.
Any thoughts? I really want this to work.
