    Recipe por favor.

    2.5 hours of speaking? Damn. That is impressive. After 10 minutes of me talking even I want me to shut up.

    • Glad your chili turned out nice and hot. Mine gives a little buzz in the back of the throat, just like I like it.

      • I still have some of my roasted chilis that we froze - they were nice and hot this year!

        159 guys and gals. I haven't seen this number in a LONG time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If this keeps, then I lost my 1 pound for January and my 1 pound for February. Anything else will be gravy.

        Recipe later. I need to be on the computer, which is in DH's office, and the workday has already started.

        Still sick. Cannot breathe. Broke down and took some nasal decongestant. I rarely take drugs of any sort, but I really needed at least a few hours of sleep. Only about 5. Want to start walking again (I miss it!), but still feeling pretty beat up. Maybe tomorrow...

        • So, what did you change?
          Was it the Fat Fast that was the catalyst?
          Are you still eating the same macros/cals as before the Fat Fast?

          Depending on the answers to these questions, it may indicate that the FF could be used in the future to help break a stall, or reset the body. BTW, these are the questions I am looking at for during and after my FF.

          • Paula, it's a little confounding. I can't tell if it's the cold (although I usually GAIN weight when I'm sick), the FF, the way I'm eating, or what. Here's what I know:

            * FF did help me get over my mental problem about the lack of food.
            * Day after FF ended, my appetite was reduced.
            * During FF, I ate primarily animal products. I'm pretty sure that even veggie fats are not what my body wants or needs. This may be because I have so many food allergies. I'm similar to Dr. E in that fashion.
            * I've continued eating primarily animal products. Maybe a few mac nuts, a little lettuce, a tsp of coconut oil. But, mostly animal products and their fat.
            * I'm eating less - between 1000 and 1200 calories per day. Not on purpose. It just feels right. I'm not that hungry. Funny, too, because there was NO way I could have done 1000 during the FF. Not, pretty easy.
            * Unintentionally, calorie cycling. Days of 1000 followed by days of 1200.
            * A TON of liquids. I feel thirsty and drink to thirst.
            * Macros are back to 80% fat...

            If I had to speculate, I would say the two biggest drivers are this: primary focus on animal products (80-90% of my calories) and reduced calories.

                • Yes, I'm tracking. BUT.................I don't know how accurate it is. For example, on the bone broth, I know it's got a lot of calories (mine, at any rate). If I pick the one where the calories look right, I know the fat is off (the protein + fat grams don't get even close to the calories). Also, when I've been eating out, I don't really know how much I'm eating. I don't have a good sense of weight. Oh, well. I at least know what I'm eating and roughly how much I think I'm getting.

                  This was the first business trip I stopped sweating about weight. I decided I'd do the best I could and deal with it when I got back. I focused on meat (the fat was as good as I could do, focusing on animal) with a bit of salad.

                    Nice! This is what I do when I have to eat out unless we go to a cafe where I can have an omelet!

                    I am glad I am not the only one wh struggles with the macros for homemade bone broth. In the end I chalk it up to being a fluid and wholesome. Not sure if this is a help or hinder attitude. Probably the later, knowing how I work.

                    • I was basically thinking that if you have a list of what you ate and about how much. I think that if you get down the line and hit a slow down or stop again and you say well what did I eat when I broke that last plateau, then you will have the info right there.

                            • It's funny, because in relative terms I am close, having come from 240. It just feels so datn far away, these last 20-30. But, im not giving up. Ee shall sll get there.

                              Forgive the typos. Got my new phone & learning to use it.

                              • I figured!

                                do you have a problem with extra skin? Or was the loss slow enough to allow it to shrink back up?
