    Usually eggs and banana for breakfast
    Lunch: chicken or turkey or pork, occasionally liver or small fish, with potatoes or rice. If I feel I need more carbs I replace the potatoes with oats+honey.
    Dinner: mostly cottage cheese and fruit, sometimes tuna

    In between I typically have milk, some fruit, high fat cheese or whatever I feel like... About 1800 kcal a day total, since I want to lose a few more lbs.
    I don't eat wheat, at all. It makes everything so much worse. Nor leafy greens. Not a big fan of those.

    I started Clonidine last Thursday, mainly to lower cortisol. It's nearly a week now and it's working really well. The dose here is 25mcg, not 100. But 25 or 50 seems to work fine and it's easier to spread the dose, day and night. At first I felt quite a comedown, a sort of blunt, unmotivated state. I'm taking 3 NDT tabs per day and continued to do so. The last few days I don't have any pounding heart during the day or in my sleep or especially after exercise. I feel a lot more calm and assertive and stable. I'm not as emotionally sensitive to my environment via adrenalin. No problems with libido functionality - quite the opposite in fact. So I would suggest folks consider a low, constant dose a few days before panicking about sides - always consult your physician first!
    I'm not getting a 5pm yawning slump anymore. I can keep going. For me, it feels like NDT is working much, much better because I have broken a permanent stress loop in my physiology using clonidine, allowing thyroid to do its work unhindered by cortisol or adrenalin. If I wake up too early , I take another tab with magnesium bysglycinate and am soon back to sleep. In the first three days it felt like my body was fighting back against the drug with adrenalin surges near the end of the half life but I just took another 25mcg or two and kept going.
    Oh, another thing. Combined, NDT and clonidine are really helping with my sense of smell and overall awareness. I hope they continue to work.

    Another option you could try instead of the clonidine is P5P B6. I find it much better than clonidine. 5mg in the morning and 5mg before bed works wonders.

    It works like a benzo to me.. a immediate calm feeling caused by the stopped adrenaline production..
    BUT.. without adrenaline you burn less energy.. so I gained weight really fast. I wonder why people use anti-histamines to gain weight.. they should use beta-blockers

    Any anti-histamine will also cause hunger.. Here in Brazil, Cyproheptadine is sold to CHILDREN for them to gain weight.

    It's from an international and well known/reputable lab called ABBOT
