thyroidDay #12 weigh-in: 121.4. Exercise yesterday consisted of a 1.1-mile jog.  I just wonder:  How is it possible to gain .4 pound on 1161 calories?  I’m beginning to think my metabolic rate is lagging.  However, I’m not quite half way through this 28-day diet.  I’ll know more by the end.

Reminder: Our goal is to consume as close to 1000 calories as possible each day of this 28-day diet, while maintaining the high nutrition and 80% alkaline/20% acid ratio of our OsteoDiet. At the end of the 28 days, we’ll determine our Metabolic Function Index, a measure of our metabolic rate, using the tables in Dr. Sanford Siegal’s book, Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat?.
