    • What amazes me is how little I need, especially if I've eaten well during the day. I'm liking this...

        • A Merry Christmas Eve to my MDA friends!! I hope you are where you want to be and who you want to be with!

          so yes I had some chicken before bed.

          Paula- you are onto something when you say if your macros are right, then you hit your calorie ball park.

          breakdown for yesterday:
          p-76 g on target
          f- 108 g perhaps a bit low
          c-21g on target

          1385 calories Now I may be a little off on my fat and carbs not not much. Next time I make fat bombs I need to pay closer attention to getting my macros for it.

          no cravings for sugar or grain though!! That alone is a positive!

          • I caved late last night. I should have gone to bed. Had 2 pieces of chocolate (and not the good stuff either) and got back into the cream cheese/celery so I went high.

            • Chris- I think that if it had just been the cream cheese and celery it would not be a big issue. You should have some fat bombs on hand so the chocolate is not a temptation. I am telling you, I popped a few little fat bomb bons and was not even looking for the naughty stuff. You could so come up with something tasty!!

                • I did feel good.. whats strange is that feeling good felt weird! LOL I am curious of the outcomes of this. Eating less calories, abet more fat (the right fat) and being content.

                  • I'm cautiously hopeful... It's nice to feel good again, though.

                    • I am going to make a batch of fat bombs to take along. I am also going to take the rest of the coconut bars (if the kids and hubby don't finish them first!

                      • Chris- Although there are many fat bomb recipes I kind of flubbed my way through. Make sure you write down how you made them so we can copy of course!

                        • ok, I just remembered that I bought almond butter specifically to make fat bombs. I made them, but don't love the taste of cocoa powder in them. I even cooked the coconut milk, oil, and cocoa powder and it still had the taste of un cooked cocoa. So I will have to experiment. The recipe I used is from "Until the Fat lady sings" but I ran short of coconut and I doubled the stevia (I like sweet). So I need to experiment. I think I want to go with mostly a coconut flavor, like the inside of mounds bars.

                          p.s. the coconut bars are much better once they spent the night in the fridge. I think you could figure out a way to sub out coconut flour for the almond meal for the base. These are pretty much fat bombs too.

                          • i like the coconut butter/cream cheese combo. i want to play with some peppermint oil with them, as well as orange and lemon. I really like the used up cocoa nibs from the brewed cocoa beans as well. It gives it that bit of crunch you are probably used to with nuts.

                            • do you buy coconut butter? and where did you get the nibs? You are getting quite creative girly!

                              • I did buy the coconut butter. However, I pinned a recipe on making your own coconut butter. The nibs I bought from Amazon. They are roasted cocoa nibs. I think I have seen them at the larger health food stores. I would be surprised if TJ's or some such place did not carry them. As for being creative, I sometimes think I am just desperate. LOL I miss the crunch of nuts but not enough to die over them. The nibs give me the satisfaction.

                                2T of the nibs is like 120 calories, negligible fat and carbs. I thought if I put 2 T in a small container that those moments at school where I am candy scavenging, crunching on one of those small pieces would give me the crunch and chocolate I crave without the sweet and sabotaging.
