  • Hey Paleobird thanks so much for the inspiration of this thread. I weighed myself after dinner --AFTER dinner!!-- and my weight has gone down. I'm at my lowest weight that didn't require a backpacking trip to achieve. I'm very happy to be moving ahead once again, both with losing this excess fat and with improving my fitness. It's good to have goals that actually get achieved.

      How has the ketogenic diet helped with your seizures? I am using a ketogenic diet for my migraines. They have lessened in numbers and severity. I am looking forward to no more!

      Funny thing about the ketogenic diet for me is that I have always loved fats. One reason I liked toast as a child was because of the butter and use to get yelled at for using too much. Bacon, chicken skin, beef fat, olives....Yummy! Makes it so easy but weird to add fats in after so many years of avoiding.
      Well my seizure are under complete control with medication. The goal now is to be able to back off on the meds and maintain that control. So far 25% down on one of my two meds and feeling great.

        Yay, SB. I'm so glad you came back from your detour into sweet potato land.

        • I gotta add that you yourself are a great inspiration, SB, along with Paloebird & others. I have always perceived the VLCs as something that is really hard to do for a female, so I really need that reminder in front of me to see it is actually cool!

            If anything I would say that it is easier to do for women than men because of our relatively higher body fat percentages. In the Phinney and Volek book on Low Carb Living, they tell the story of a hypothetical woman and a man left in a lifeboat with plenty of water but no food. The woman survives a whole lot longer.
            Also VLC is the best way to get rid of those sugar cravings that I know have plagued you once and for all. Once you have done this a while, sugar just doesn't appeal any more.

            • I am seeing some steady, slow weight loss, too, while trying this.

              I think I like it

                You know, I actually do not have sugar cravings really. It's all the fruit cravings. I prefer sweet and sour fruit, like GS apples and berries and lemons and rhubarb. Pure sweet flavors never really did much for me, well, maybe caramel or fudge, but I did not really crave that for a while.

                A question on cheeses. Mark is all about organic and raw, but here we have only one cheese available in that category (cheddar). Do you gals source your cheeses raw & organic, or just normal?

                  Look for the Ancetre cheese from Quebec. Lots of options, made with raw organic milk. Sylvan Star from Alberta is also raw milk, and they make wonderful gouda and gruyere. Both are available at Planet Organic in Edmonton, so it should be available in Calgary too.

                    Yep, just as advertised in the PB.

                    You know, I think your fruit craving are really just sugar cravings in a what you have always been told is "healthy" form. I know you are a very health conscious person so you aren't scarfing Twinkies, but the same neural receptors get tickled by that sweet fruit too.

                    About cheese. I try for organic and raw grass fed whenever possible. Kerrygold makes a good line of cheeses.

                    • Today was coconut milk day. I made two of Mark's receipes. First I made the coconut milk custard. Then I made the crust less quiche. Instead of just using broccoli I added some Swiss chard too. I used KerryGold cheese but mine is not raw. It says it's made from pasteurized milk.

                        Yeah, I get Ancetre. It only has O & unpasterized (not sure if it means raw) for cheddar, and organic but not unpasterized for Swiss and Parmigiana. I looked in the SS generic brand, but it lables milk ingredient as up/organic but then says there is buttermilk there as well (and they did not labeled buttermilk as u/o). I will see if I can find Sylvan Star, but the last I check it was only hard cheeses they had in raw format, no gouda. At least I have quark, not that organic milk here is all that 'natural', since it's still pasteurized and homogenized.

                        We don't have Kerrigold here, raw is only available in aged cheeses aged for over XYZ days because Quebec farmers lobbied & because the folks in the dairy regulation agreed that the harmful bacteria is dead from the process.

                        Who knows... bodybuilders advise against fruit anyway, so there are more reasons to avoid it than to eat it. Still it would be nice if once can eat at least cranberries.

                        • Vital Greens has non-homogenized whole milk. Still pasteurized, but a better option than homogenized milk. I've never seen any Kerrygold products in Alberta.

                          • I haven't seen Vital Green, just Avalon and something else. There is no lactose milk as well.
