    • @Ayla. I'm back to 206 which was where I was the first Friday of the month. When I get to 200 pounds, that will be a new for me. Haven't been at that weight since 2000, pre-pregnant with my middle daughter

        • Hello Everyone,

          Can I join in? I know it is more than half way thru January now, but I have been following the PB since the 1st after 2 year break dealing with stuff and trying to keep sane - mainly by giving in to my sweet cravings...
          I have about 30kg to lose and lost 3 since the 1st Jan! I have been slowly upping my fat for the last few days as I was catching up with this thread.
          Thanks for inspiration.

            Of course you can join us.
            A late start is a start... Welcome back.


            As you may have noticed there is sometimes some friction around the forums about HFLC/Ketosis these days, but there are still a significant number of us that live by it.
            Some old hands(myself included)... some here newly trying it out.

              D: Some of a grilled New York strip steak with 2 slices of extra sharp white vermont cheddar melted and poured on top, topped with herb and garlic seasoned mushrooms sauteed in bacon fat.

                • Welcome Blueberry! Please let us know if you want any help figuring out your Macros. See the 1st post for the formula.

                  PS My ancestors on my father's side were from Scotland. No idea where because they were in the US by 1827. I also have a secret love affair with the Bay City Rollers. Yuck, I know. I watched an episode of VH1 Behind the Music about the group. It did not paint a flattering portrait of them lol, But I still have their greatest hits downloaded to my phone.

                  • I am finding that tomi is right, it takes a smaller portion of meat to hit my macros than I would sometimes like. But I am plugging along. I absolutely could not do this if I wasn't tracking. I feel certain that by the time I reach goal I won't have to track anymore, but think I will at least do it on occasion to keep myself honest. I will also likely go back to daily weigh ins then to keep myself within a 5 pound window.

                    Karin, I know this isn't exactly the way to look at macros, but since your carbs were on the low side they would sort of make up for the fact that your protein was a bit high, maybe. Just gotta get in some fat.

                          • Yes you can freeze, but it goes from creamy to crumbly. So depends what you will use it for.

                            • Thank you for your warm welcome.
                              I have calculated my macros according to your advice to someone else. I am hoping for 60 - 65kg so my aim is approx.
                              fat - 125g
                              protein - 65g
                              carb - 35g
                              calories are around 1500
                              does that look correct?
                              I managed to get my macros yesterday and day before (thanks to something we call here "double cream" - 50g fat in 100ml!!!) but I find calories a bit low so will need time to adjust :/

                              Pebbles - it is quite fun to look at the map of US and Canada - so many places sound so familiar!

                                I think we call "double cream" by the term "heavy".

                                ***************

                                Finished yesterday at 74% fat, 19% protein, 7% carbs. Total calories was 1701. Really need to dial that back to 1500 if possible. Or start moving more. I was over my fat goal by 24 gm and over protein by 7. Under on carbs by 6. I ate a lot of salads yesterday. Egg salad with a spring mix including spinach in the morning, cheese for lunch (yes just cheese... I had class the night before, so there were no dinner leftovers to enjoy. Same for today), then a big chef salad with lots of meat and egg, but also 2 tbsp of olive oil. Our farmers market had a stand one day that sold garlic and basil infused olive oil. It's absolutely delicious! It would be amazing on bagel chips - if we still ate those. lol I think they just soak the garlic and basil in the olive oil, then strain the things off it, then rebottle it. Great idea. And it makes an amazing salad dressing.

                                Gonna be low on greens today as I'm out. So just egg salad for breakfast. That's ok by me.
