I gained weight too! 10 pounds
within a few days! I think it was 5 days. It would not come off with the companion nutrients either. I stopped the Lugol's
for a few weeks and then started up again, gaining about 8 pounds. I am a female so this really hurt! If you could go back and read about Jesse the Turtle I think it would help. I will try to find it and post it for you. If I look at Jesse's story and his transformation and apply it to myself, even though I'm not a turtle, I come to the conclusion that for some of us their is a need for the Iodine
to go in and make some changes. (Jesse did not go out and start an exercise program either!) Those changes may cause us to retain fluids, although I did not feel bloated. I believe, the body sometimes is so in need of the Iodine
one person described it as metamorphasis) and therefore you have to allow for some changes to take place. The only way I have gotten the weight off is by doing this last 40 day fast while on Lugol's. I am planning to post my testimony today so maybe you can glean something from my experience. I truly believe that a weight gain on Iodine
is a good sign and that the body is responding to the use of it. I don't believe it is the fast food catching up with you suddenly becuase it has been your way of life for some time and it sounds like you have decreased consumption of it. I do believe that fast food has the power to dig graves! One teaspoon of dirt at a time!
