    I've put on quite a bit of fat since trying to adopt Peat principles (more protein, trying to get most of my carbs from fruit sugars, doing everything I can to reduce PUFA intake) and while that deserves its own post, I'm wondering if anyone else gets a super hot core.

    That **** Portion Control guy (he used to post on here as nate dawg or something similar) has said that it could be a sign of SIBO? Wondering what others think of this.

    I don't know if that's SIBO, but I would bet on endotoxins. How is the state of your gut?

    I thought in hypothyroidism the limbs aren’t perfumed because the body is trying to keep the central organs warm and has to preferentially select those over limbs

    I began gradschool in September and it was fine there for a little bit (2x BMs, no straining, no bothersome symptoms) but ever since midterms it's been touch and go and I've become waaaay less regular with more gas and rumblings.

    True and that could be an issue. It just feels like there's some inflammation going on.

    you might try a bit of aspirin. And are you using the carrot salad, or well cooked mushrooms or bamboo shoots?

    Getting enough salt? Any nutrient deficiencies? Vitamin D aids with gut health. Cold extremities are also a symptom of low GABA.

    With a thyroid problem, you'd usually be cold all over.

    I'm popping aspirin every couple of days but I could try upping my frequency.

    I add mushrooms in when I cook up beef and gelatin but I could definitely be doing the carrot salad more often. When do you time it in your eating schedule?

    Plenty of salt! Used to be wary of it in my WFPB days but glad those are behind me.

    I take vitamin D w my K2 supp but since I live in Canada I could probably stand to add some more.

    Using cronometer atm and I would love for a version that only tracked nutrients, not calories - I am absolutely done w dieting, restrictions etc.

    Between meals, usually late afternoon. I added bamboo shoots, well cooked, to the well cooked mushrooms and it is fantastic.
