Question, but first a bit of info. I began 2 weeks ago. Took kelp drops at approximatelly 500ug then switched to lugol's 5% 1 week ago, starting at 12mg then to 24mg, and now 50mg (8drops in coffee in morning and 8 drops in tall skim milk at night). I FEEL GREAT!!!
The first big notice, brain fog gone, second, energy, third, incredible skin, fourth, brain fog back and skin break out (I truly believe this is the detoxing and am waiting it out), fifth, swollen skin tissue on legs, abdomen, back, upper arms have "gone down"(no weight loss but my clothes fit better), I will keep checking my large painful fibroid in my left breast for reduction, nothing so far, but I am hopeful.
The plan is to stay at 50mg for 3 months then bring it down to maintenance level.
Question: Food is starting to not taste so good. A great deal of food is tasting as if it is too salty or I can begin a good tasting meal then all of a sudden it just tastes bad and I have to stop eating.
Now this is great for I do need to lose 30lbs. But it is very very odd when you have been a "foodie" for years. Has anyone else noticed food tasting less desirable or even salty??? I am worried for I am famous in my family for creating some incredibly yummy dishes that are low in fat but high in taste. I do not wish to lose my ability to use my taste buds to create happy healthy meals for my men. Although I do not feel this loss would make me stop when I am feeling soooo good.
