    I've dealt with severe stress and anxiety for many years. I find that meditation and yoga help a lot. When at work, listening to a favorite song, or writing out my concerns helps. I'll even use my lunch break just to go for a little walk to clear my head.

    I also find that when I skip meals my stress level usually elevates (I have no idea why) So I keep a bag of almonds nearby just to nibble. I know oranges aren't in the ok category for fruits, but the vitamin C in oranges helps to lower blood pressure and cortisol to normal levels after a stressful situation.

    Hope these help!

    I've been very strict with my Inferno diet, portion control etc. I started at 295 and very quickly began to lose almost one pound a day. In 3 weeks I lost 19 pounds. I did not exercise, just very precisely controlled what I ate and how much I ate. For almost a week now my weight has not budged and as fluctuated up and down a pound. I assume that is merely water weight but why am I no longer losing ANY weight? Two days ago I began exercising (walking 4 miles a day). I was really looking forward to this being a lifelong change but now I'm feeling rather defeated. What am I doing wrong?

    Part of my brain is saying, absolutely not. The other part is saying, it might work. I'm not sure which is acceptable during the Ignite phase?

    NicoleMarie asked the Question: Is sushi allowed during the Ignite phase?

    I know some fish and shellfish are allowed, and brown rice is ok. Would sashimi and a bowl of brown rice be acceptable? Are there any hidden 'evil 6' ingredients I should watch out for at the sushi restaurant?
