    how long do minerals stay in your body?

    lets say i cheat on the diet and load up on ice cream and cheese and magnesium. (haha). how long would it take to approximately to leave your body?\


    also, do you count the sodium bicarbonate (when drinking BSD) as part of our daily sodium intake for the boy diet?

    Hey Gizmo

    No idea, but great question as I wonder wether having 2 weeks off minerals etc wether my levels would have drastically dropped or not?

    Don't stress too much about consuming magnesium and calcium, but rather concentrate on upping the sodium and potassium IMO I think is more the way anyway??

    I don't count my minerals anymore but just try to take advantage when I can to get my minerals in
    Fathers Day baby!

    Same here , no clue! And counting it? Oh please....I just can't do it. This whole thing is so hard to remember! Also I have 4 kids it's summer break and just no time to do it!
    Like when to eat your meals and what to eat together at the same time, also when to take the sups and which one to take together and with meals. Oh and the drink when and how too OMG! And count the whole thing? And don't forget snacks and fruit and veggie .
    Really I don't think I can do it the way we "suppose " to. And my sway is so far away Im already tired of the whole thing.
    Maybe Im just kidding myself I never get a boy anyway like this.
    thinking to stop it all. ( at least today I think so)
    Is there anyone doing all this the right way really??

    i havent even started the boy diet yet..but will in a month, and totally agree about all teh WORK involved!! i mean, get up and eat, all the fruits and veggies, does this have calcium in it? does that? and on top of the food thing, trying to plan it out for your DH with his meals and supps too, plus exercise to boost T. waking up to take your temp, checking CM, charting everything (if you do). on top of that trying tobe sexy enough for TTCBoy sex. ugh. why cant we just go to the store and buy a boy? (one with our genes). i only have 1/2 the girls you do but its still work! plus i gotta check this site incase i missed anything or ask a question and see who responded? ;-)

    buuuttt..im still going to try it all! ;-) just complaining today. ;-)

    I hear you completely!!! I started tracking minerals but after a month gave up and not long after found this forum and I am so thankful I did, it has helped me to relax and feel at peace with that!

    Excellent question, I'd like to know too.
    You know, when I cheat on the diet with cheese, my consolation is that cheese is very rich in Sodium http://www.midwestear.com/pdfs/Sodium_content.pdf ( well in Calcium as well....)
    I don't like ice-cream and i never eat it, so I'm not suffering from lack of it on boy diet

    Haha, I was wondering the same thing.
    I cannot possibly swallow 3 glasses of BSD, 3 glasses of gelatine drink, 2-3 cups of green tea, lemon water- spaced throughout the day or not.
    I start my day full of energy, like today I'm going to eat/drink all I'm supposed to, but by the afternoon I'm crushed eating all the things I don't like.

    I manage to drink 2 cups of green tea, 2 glasses of BSD ( I feel my Sodium intake is insufficient, but I'm not tracking lol!), 1 glass of gelatine drink and all water I'm drinking is lemon water.

    I hate snacks, so I often skip that part

    Anyone doing the whole thing 100%?

    There are so many variables that determine that, it is impossible to say. A lot of other nutrients control the amount of calcium and magnesium in your blood anyway. It is TOTALLY possible to have high levels of calcium in the blood even if you eat none - your body just takes what it needs from your bones and teeth.

    Yes, DO count the BSD when you're counting sodium.
