Sounds good! Let me know if you see any signs or symptoms of insulin resistance (unexpected weight gain, or even just absence of weight loss when you think you should be losing weight, hair growth, irregular cycle, sudden outbreaks of acne, that sort of thing) and we may want you to shift exclusively to whole grains.

Don't take the BCP every other day. Either use it, or don't. We don't know that it works every other day for swaying, and it will very likely make your cycle screwy taking it that way (course, that may be why it sways pink, but we don't know that for sure.) You would have to stop using it when you're TTC because it might still suppress your ability to conceive, even every other day.
