Thread: Detox symptoms?

  1. #13
    Good to know. Just checked and mine is magnesium oxide. I have been taking it at night after dinner, directions say to take with food.

    As for the form of magnesium, the poorest absorbed forms are the best for this purpose, such as magnesium citrate or magnesium oxide. Its nice that they are also the cheapest forms. The pricier combos like magnesium glyconate or malate don't work as well. In fact people take those forms to avoid laxative effects.

    Thanks for this post Leez, it has some useful info, I always take mine in the morning, but think I will change to nightime!

    Magnesium is usually well tolerated. Some people do have stomach upset from it, so that's what that warning is about. I've personally not had any issues with just taking it before bedtime, even at massive doses.

    I'm a little confused with my losses but I am comparing it to the last time I did HCG which was April 2019.
    Just finished my first week and I was down 7.4 lbs. During this week I had days of no losses, one day of a .4 gain, but overall I lost 7.4lbs. The last time I did this diet, I had a loss every day, smaller and different losses, and lost 7.4lbs as well.
    Just starting my second week of P2, first day no loss, and today a gain of .6 (I am on VLCD 10)
    So now since starting overall I am down 6.8lbs. I did not have this happen last time, I steadily lost smaller increments daily, and now it seems like I am having days of 0 loss and gains followed by larger losses some days. What is this? I am following OP, eating same as before, no cheats ever. I am not hungry at all, and I feel totally fine. I almost can feel my body holding onto the weight, it's strange, like it doesn't want to come off. I can feel this band of fat or bloat around my stomach that stubbornly doesn't want to budge.
    I do some light walking daily, and some light flexibility yoga 3x week. I drink plenty of water, always have.
    I am about 10 days away from TOM. The only time I experienced this last time was day 1, 2, 3 of TOM followed by a big loss. So I don't think it's my cycle. The only culprit I can think of is perhaps too much salt? I eat spinach usually but I definitely add salt to it. But I am not using any more salt or seasonings than I did last time. It doesn't seem to make a difference if I eat shrimp, chicken, or beef, my body still loses at different rates on a day to day basis. I am trying to be patient but it's getting discouraging weighing myself every day.
    Any input would help. Thanks!

    If you are not already using mineral or sea salt, switch to that. Those forms are not caustic to the body like table salt. (And it will also help keep your electrolytes in balance.) But unless you are hitting the pickle juice pretty hard, its probably not a salt issue.

    You could be having some pre-TOM hormone shifts, but the loss patterns can change from round to round. If your losses are catching you up to anything around a .5 pound a day average, then you are doing fine. I don't see that you need to change anything just yet.

    For the bloat, you could try doing one of grammy's inflammation smoothies. Do it either first thing in the morning or right before bed, away from other food.

    You can easily make this P2 compliant by subbing cilantro for the celery, and lemon for the lime. This would count as one of your vegetables for the day. (Cilantro is a diuretic and detoxifying herb)

    ok thanks. I've been using pink himalayan salt. Also some of the broth I use is not low sodium. I just bought low sodium broth, I was thinking maybe that might help, although did not always use low sodium last time. I mention salt because it feels like fluid retention. My clothes do feel looser so I'm trying not to be so focused on numbers.

    Some brands of broth are made with unrefined sea salt. Those should be fine, and better than the low-sodium ones that use regular salt.

    The smoothie will help with fluid retention. Another thing to try is a detox (epsom salt/bakingsoda/ginger) soaking bath. There are recipes & instructions findable by internet search.

    Good to know, I'm going to double check on the broth ingredients. And that sounds good I am going to try the smoothie
