    Yes on occasion it's perfectly fine. We're trying for the majority of the time, with room for some cheats as needed.

    It doesn't matter as long as it's the soy protein for DH but next time I'd get the regular stuff.

    Just looking for some advice re my LP - itís always been fairly short, around 10-11 days, but this cycle itís been 8 days. Do you think this will be because of the diet? Should I do anything about it?

    Iíve lost a few pounds already, BMI is okay at 19.5 tho. We werenít TTC this month. Thanks! X

    Also, you are well below the cutoff where you should have stopped losing weight. Once you hit BMI 21 you need to stop losing and try to hold steady where you are (and if an additional pound sneaks off then it's not the end of the world). The 18.5 cutoff is the amount you MUST NOT drop below under any circumstances and NOT a goal to strive for.

    Stop losing weight immediately and let me know how you determined ovulation.

    Hi,
    I got a positive OPK on Thursday 13th May, so Iím assuming I ovulated on Friday 14th... period then started on Saturday 22nd. Itís also pretty much stopped now already.
    On the weight loss... ok I will try... but with 1 hour cardio 6 x a week, and sticking to the limits (plus no sugar) it feels like my weight will automatically drop!

    Eat more. If weight is flying off that is a sign your insulin response is either improved or was never that bad to begin with so up cal intake to stop the weight loss. Even if you have to exceed the limits on cals.

    How many grams of fat per day do you estimate?

    Ok thank you. Iím usually hitting 50g fat, at least 40 per day. Iíve had a bigger lunch and dinner today so Iíll try to up the cals so that my weight holds steady now.

    Iím only on week 5 and was planning to do the full 12 before TTC. Do you see a lot of difference in results between 8 to 12 weeks? Iím just not sure how long Iíll be able to keep going without losing too much. Thanks!

    While 8 weeks is acceptable, we do definitely see an improvement at 12 weeks (and then success rates stay high after that). What you can do (if you can't get a handle on the weight loss and hold steady) is try that first month with a stricter sway and then if you don't get pregnant you'll hit the 12 week mark. This can be a good way to include some stuff you've been wanting to try (like timing, pH, jump and dump, frequency, that sort of thing) so you can feel like you've given everything a whirl before we drop the things that don't actually work, and by then you've hit the 12 week mark.

    You have up to 60 g fat to work with. Many times fat is the easiest thing to add as it's calorically dense so you don't have to eat scads more food to compensate for it. (meaning, if you were eating skim dairy, go to full fat, if you were eating reduced fat anything, switch to full fat, have butter and mayonaise, cream in coffee, that sort of thing). With very little change in what you're eating you will be up in cals and they're the type of calories that help keep people ovulating.

    Hi Atomic, Iím on CD25 and no sign of O. Iíve had very little CM, usually I have a lot in the 3/4 days before O.
    What about castor oil packs, Iíve tried that before to encourage O - does this sway either way? Do you think it would help? Iím not going to be TTC this cycle but I just want to get it out the way as next cycle we will be (I should have been on diet at least 14 weeks by then. Thanks! X
