Hi Annie! Happy Birthday to YOU! 🙂

Yes, we love Natural CALM magnesium as a way to keep digestion moving and help you wind down. Like Julie mentioned, you may need to experiment with dosage – start with one teaspoon and work your way up to more if needed. Wait a day to see how it impacts your digestion as it generally will get things moving by the next morning. As long as your stools aren’t too loose, you should be good to go. There are also forms of magnesium that you can also try if Natural CALM (contains magnesium citrate) isn’t a good fit. You could also try a magnesium glycinate supplement which is useful for anxiety, insomnia and chronic stress but will not have the same impact on your stools.

Happy to hear that you are finding the food + activity journal helpful – yes, it definitely calls attention to the times we multitask while eating. Sometimes just connecting the dots helps us make major habit shifts.

As far as your birthday party goes, we are truly all about a BALANCED approach to nutrition which includes life’s indulgences so by all means, enjoy a cookie that your sweet kiddos made you. 🙂 Stay tuned for the ‘Moving Forward’ section which really calls out our P365 approach to nutrient-dense eating…and guess what?! There is a place in your diet for ALL food and after 20-days of rebooting your body chances are you will enjoy a small treat but truly continue to crave nourishing/real food. Go enjoy yourself tonight and again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
