    A couple more things...

    My Goals
    My goal is 170 or 77kg. This is toward the high end of my weight range. I am 5'10" tall
    Fat 154g
    Protein 69-85g
    Carb limit 38g

    Max cals 1878 74% f / 18% p / 8%c (I actually have been hitting more like 70 / 25 / 5)

    ***I posted this in my journal a few days ago.
    Caution About 3 weeks into my Primal journey, I had a near deadly incident with pulmonary emboli. Well, I feel I would be remiss in not reporting the following research. Although the damage to my circulatory system was already done due to years of metabolic derangement, the likely trigger for the PE was jumping too quickly from super high carb to below 50g. I have read several studies on this issue. In some people with damaged circulatory systems this can happen. The recommendation is to move down the carb curve slowly. This time, I was able to jump in with both feet because I take blood thinners. So, if you are super carby over the holidays, please take it slow. Cutting down slowly may even help with Carb Flu.

      I'm in. My stats pretty much the same. I hope to take off 10+ by February. I have been under 30g carbs since 11/1.

      More fat and less protein are good so far, but I've been out and about and not eating much.

        Okay I'm in.

        My stats:
        Goal in kilos: 60
        Carbs: 30
        Protein: 50
        Fat: 120

        Total calories 1400
        Ratios: fat 77%, protein 14%, carbs 9%

        I've been hitting that pretty close - I started this on Dec. 17th - I'm still a bit high on protein and a bit low on fat. So I'll work on that. Smaller meat portions and more fatty snacks. I just snacked on carrots dipped in cream cheese.

        Bacon is always my breakfast, sometimes with a couple eggs - mostly just bacon.

        Current weight 182.
        1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
        2. Eat to heal
        3. Move to live
        4. Embrace today
        5. Live with intention
        6. Respect my body
        7. Cultivate joy
        8. Find my passion
        9. Meditate on peace in my soul

            I've been in NK since early Sept. Love it - and I manage during business travel and customer meals. Just a smile and an "I'm fasting now - but please, go ahead." And I drink bottled water, or water with lemon. I can fast any time I need to.

            For the record, the last month the fat has just been sliding off - including my saddlebags. I'm going to have to buy more clothes soon - my pants are getting really baggy. Damn.

            Age - 61 (later this month)
            Height - 5'1"/155 cm
            Goal weight - 110#/50 kg

            I IF almost every day, with coffee with heavy cream, and one meal in the evening. Gosh, this is so hard ....

                AnnLee, just for the record (and possible encouragement) do you mind telling us what stage of menopause you are in?

                  NP - been post-menopausal for about 5 or 6 years. Workouts are erratic due to work pressure (unofficial motto - "X doesn't care where you put in your 80 hours a week, as long as you get them all in."). It isn't really that busy, just seems like it most of the time. Emotional fatigue is the hard part, and it's been MUCH better since going keto.

                  Now I just have to reliably engage the posterior (kick m'self in the butt) to get the workouts regular. Keto has never impacted my workouts save once, when I got a little lightheaded - which drives my comments on various threads to watch your electrolytes.

                    Thanks Annlee, We all understand the impact of emotional fatigue. It is probably my biggest binge trigger.

                          Here's a recipe that I make for Brocolli Cheese Soup:

                          1 Tbsp butter
                          1 Cup HWC
                          1 8oz block of cream cheese
                          3 cups chicken broth
                          bag frozen or fresh chopped brocolli
                          2 cups sharp or extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
                          pepper to season

                          In a pan, place your chicken broth and brocolli in a pan and let cook until soft. In a separate pan, melt your butter, HWC and cream cheese until smooth. When all that is melted, add your cheddar cheese. Once brocolli is cooked, take a stick blender and break the brocolli into smaller pieces, add to cheese mixture and add a little pepper to season. Enjoy!

                          Don't ask me what the macros are but I know it's high in fat. I know you can google it to get the info.

                              Yum. We need that on the recipe page, (hopefully someday I can eat cheese again)

                                It's really good and great on cold days. My kids eat it up(even the spouse likes it).
