DAY#147 - Lab Results
Day 11 of Phase 3 for me. I have been staying within 2lbs of my goal weight and hovering mostly below. Cept this past few days I have been a bit constipated and slowly gaining daily. today I was 1lb over my weight goal. Which was still acceptable but scared me a little bit.
I had a Dr. visit today so i quizzed my Dr. for help with 'going.' He recommended Miralax. He said it was a safe alternative for me and would flush more water through my intestines and get me moving. The benefiber I had been taking was adding more bulk and to be honest with all the veggies I was eating I didn't need bulk, I needed flushed, LOL He said with the change from p2 to p3 my colon was probably in shock and needed some help. it would correct itself but prefer faster results. BTW, I never had an issue in months of P2
I bought a generic miralax at walmart. Went home made a protein shake and added two capfuls. 2 hours later. I was a happy man! Also got my gout meds under control too!. However, if anyone knows of a homeopathic gout remedy I would love to hear it.
I also reviewed my full blood work with my Dr. from the end of 117 days of P2. My lab report was perfect no shortages or overages. My blood sugar was a 75 and my HA1C (3 month blood sugar average) was a 4.4. Blood pressure was 130/60. cholesterol 141. Dr. was impressed and congratulated me. I have another work up scheduled for 3 months from now to see How I fair after the diet.
