  • Pebbles, thank you for starting this thread. I would not have added fat without reading this thread!

    • Pebbles, you might add salted regular broth to the possible electrolyte choices. I know for me I wouldn't eat bullion and bone broth is just kind of a pain- trying to find good healthy bones. The broth seems to work for me. I do salt it with Himalayan salt and lite salt which has potassium. It's just a convenient choice w/o the MSG. Of course, pretty sure there are MSG free bullion choices available too which you might mention.

      • Calee, did not realize you are 62, it is inspiring to find a person your age successful at fat loss since so many say it is not possible. congrats

          What type of regular broth do you use?

            • January EMF Results

              January 7, SW: 233.8
              Feb. 1, CW: 222.8
              Net Loss: -11

              I have lost 18 lbs since Nov. 5th, losing 7 in November and December. So a one month loss of 11 lbs rocks, esp. since I have perfected the macros. I am insulin resistant, so it means my body is using its fat stores for fuel and HEALING!!!

              Tips? Find a few meals that work and rotate them. For me, avocado smoothies have really helped with appetite control. I am going to try some new flavors, like coconut milk chai.

              Goals for February EMF, to get under 220, I've been yo-yoing from 224-221 for the last couple of weeks. I also want to start exercising, for stress relief!

              Good job all and thank you to Pebbles and Paleobird for the inspiration.

              Also, if this isn't working for you, I would like to mention again a study from Dr. Cross that said this WOE is optimal for 1/3 of the population. Keep trying to find things that work best for your hot rod!

                • My total loss for the month was 11 lbs. I will get back to you about inches lost.

                  • Just compared today's measurements with those from January 6th at my lowest during the flu. They are all over the place bust up .5 inches chest (measured under breast) down 2 inches, natural waist down, fattest part of stomach up .5. So yeah not sure what any of this means. But I think the trend is positive as the over all calculation is down 2 inches and I am never hungry so eventually I think I'll actually have a real loss. It certainly has helped me keep my calories closer to my target which is great. Before going grain free I was counting calories and at 1500 calories a day I was hungry, prone to snacking, and didn't lose a pound. So now my struggle is getting enough calories to hit my low goal of 1450. So I'll keep going for now. I imagine when I start exercising more, I'll obviously burn more. So not the overwhelming success that some are seeing but it's not terrible. I could have gained 10 pounds!

                    • So even with 1/2 the month spent traveling, I lost 6 pounds, 4 inches from my waist, and 2 from the girls. I'm able to wear a medium pull on skirt that's been in my closet forever. I'm sleeping better, making better food choices on the road, and feel better. I start the morning with a combination of coffee with HWC or CO and butter. Lunch is cheese, salami, and raw veggies. Dinner is some fatty meat and veggies. I don't have cravings (other than eggplant?) and am very happy on LCHF.

                      Started at a size 16 down to loose 10

                      With PB my asthma has improved, low back pain is gone, & I've got more energy

                      • I've been using this stuff:
                        broth-300x214.jpg

                        Like I say, I add plenty of salt (and garlic and a little black pepper). Tastes like ramen noodles which I used to love! Put some of those miracle noodles in there, yum!

                        • The attachement didn't come through. Is there a link to it you could post? Pictures in forum threads (other than your own journal) don't seem to attach right for some reason.

                          • Started on a ratio of 17-3-80 1350 cals on Monday & weighed today. 7lb lost! I can't believe it. I have never lost that amount in a month before, ever. As I have not been eating grains or sugar & restricting carbs to 5% for some months now I know it is not all water loss. Its amazing that such a simple change in diet - up the fat & lower the protein should make such a huge change. I was hoping for a lb loss as I have not been exercising at all this week & I thought 1350 cals which is just below my BMR would be too high. I am totally speechless.

                            Have now got my exercise plan sorted thanks to PB fitness so hopefully will be able to keep it off next week
