  • Feeling tired today. May have to enjoy some herb ox for the carb flu knockout... weird that it took 2 days of gloriously LCHF eating for it to hit... Sleepy....

    I've lost 4 lbs since I stepped on the scale and reported my highest weight for 2013 on Tuesday. I didn't start 'eating right' until Wednesday, so I've lost 4 lbs in only 2 days of being on plan. SCORE!

      • Jenn, mine usually hits from day 2-4. Atkins used to say that it takes 48 hours minimum to burn off the sugar in your system and get into ketosis.

            I started feeling a little sluggish after work last night. I can tell that the bone broth with the Knorr does help a lot. I've been having that every morning with my breakfast and it makes a huge difference.

                  • Hey Ladies! (I don't believe we have any men joining us yet...... ?)

                    I'm doing good. Day 3 was a bit off for me though. I started the day with another unplanned fast - so that makes 2 days in a row of at least a 20 hour fast. First thing I ate when I got home from work yesterday was some almond butter (maybe 3 TB) and then I crazed on pork rinds while I cooked hubbies birthday curry. The only think I wanted for dinner was roasted veggies, so I made a large pan of broc, cauliflower, carrots and squash. I ate nearly the entire pan. Then at 9 pm I ate 4 thick slices of bacon. Macros were good:
                    Total cal: 1250
                    Fat: 63%
                    Prot: 19%
                    Carbs: 16%

                    The veggies and the almond butter was too high on carbs. But overall it was good. I'm going to ditch the almond butter (again) when this jar is gone. Its just not the right source of fat calories for me - too many carbs and too much omega-6. I need a different go-to fatty snack.

                    The bad thing............ I went to be with a very bloated stomach and a belly ache. Kept me from sleeping good. I woke up about every hour from 10:30 until 2:30........ was awake until 4:30 (bad dream and couldn't go back to sleep) - then fitful sleep until I got up at 8:00. So - I'm dragging today!

                    I haven't weighed since the 1st - and I'm not going to until the 11th.

                      • That is one cute dog, and my hat off to you for saving him from a certain fate.......enjoy the wee frella !!!!
                        No alcohol last night for me - so a huge bonus this side of the world. I didn't sleep well thou. Possibly the heat??? althou I am talking 14/16 degrees, not 30 like in Aussi. I would not be able to handle that sort of heat at night.
                        I am still not measuring macros/micros, but am feeling great with lots of fat in my system....and of course I don't need much because it is so satiating !
                        I have fallen into the routine of coffee/cream on wakeup, big lunch of BAS, fat and meat, then a snack in the evening. We shall see if it works for me. I am just not hungry at night ?
                        Re the knee, DH had two new hemis (half knees) at the same time may 2 years ago, so I know exactly what you are going through knee pain wise. He did find thou that starting the exersizes early post surgery, and doing plenty of them, spaced throughout the day, worked really well to get the joints moving again, which in turn reduced the pain and swelling. However he also found that when he was sitting, putting his legs up ( so the blood can drain) eased pain also.
                        Those anaesthetics knock you for six thou...thinking of you from over here
                        and hoping that all other ailments are being kicked into touch...as it were LOL
                        Have the best day everyone !

                        • Congrats to all of you on your losses and successes so far!

                          I am back on plan today and ready to do this. I am cooking ahead a few items this weekend. I am making this Chili lime chicken, because YUM! Chili Cilantro Lime Crock Pot Chicken : PaleoPot – Paleo Recipes For Your Crock Pot & Slow Cooker.

                          Oh cool, I'm sort of procrastinating at work, so I think I'll make a cooking plan. Have a great weekend everyone!

                          P.S. CUTE PUP!!!!
