Why don't they tell you about this stuff? Do you know how many times that would have come in handy?

Unfortunately, it's not a reset to factory specs...and it takes up to two weeks for your body to find the reset point.

When you have a fever your thermostat resets quickly. When your temp is going up you feel cold; when it's going down, you feel too warm.

Different biomechanism from the food reset...it's a lot more stubborn and needy.

Yup. I guess I was pointing out that we have a number of reset buttons.

Babe you must drink at least 4 pints of water a day.
3 weeks ago I moved from 1200 cals per day to 1800, my wife gives me 1 wholemeal roll with the main course for dinner and if I'm lucky 6oz of pots.
Tonight I will have my first eggs for 13 weeks
Keep it up Babe ive lost a total of 38 lbs so far and everything works better
