    • You can do honey - but only a little. A couple TBS, maybe 3. You'll have to count in the carbs and calories for the honey. I use Stevia - but it also has a slight bitter after taste. I can live with it. I just made a new batch - I added 1/4 cup dark cocoa powder, 3-4 TB honey and 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes. YUMMY. I make mine small - 36 little dollups out of a batch. Yeilds EACH: 65 calories, 3 carbs, 6 fat, .7 protein. Works for me!

        • I am going to carry on, but don't think I can keep tracking and stressing about the numbers. I let them get to me too much I think. Ill still follow along and post if that is OK

          • We all have to find what makes us comfortable, Ayla. If you can do the HFLC thing without tracking then go for it! Nothing says you have to make yourself nuts with the numbers!

I'm still having trouble dialing in the macros, I had one day that was spot on. I'm learning a lot, but I never thought it would be so challenging to get the macros right. Enough complaining, I'll go back to lurking.
              This is a major experiment. I spend a bit of time figuring out what to eat throughout the day. It gets easier after awhile.

                I am eating mostly the same things each day anyway, so I have a pretty good idea of what to eat.
                I have to get back to my daily walking too, I don't know why I stopped really.

                  • Alrighty then mr. spammer hopefully, you are gone for a while at least.

                    You ladies sure are chatty I think I just read 8 pages. I have resorted to eating coconut milk fat straight out of the can at night to get my calories up. It works. So far my weight gain has stopped so I am sitting at 4 pounds heavier than I was but not getting any higher so I feel good about that. I also feel like I'll probably be down lower tomorrow. Not sure why it's just how I felt today, so we shall see. I need to find time for more exercise which would really help my weight loss efforts. For right now I can manage 2-4 mile walk a day. Bike every once in a while also some push ups when I think about them.
                    My totals for today look pretty good. More protein and less fat than my goal but much closer calorie wise.
                    calories 1389
                    Fat 116 g
                    Carbs19 g
                    Fiber3 g
                    Protein 73 g

                      I think you should keep doing what works for you!

                      Me,I have to count calories...I don't trust myself yet,enough not to.

                      • Thank you for the welcome everyone.

                        I will be very curious as to whether my almost three pound whoosh sticks tomorrow.

                        I was much hungrier today than yesterday but I did ok.

                        Calories 1391. Good macros again today!
                        Protein 21%
                        Carbs. 10%
                        Fat. 69%

                        I walked 6 miles. 3 at 6:30 am, 3 at 4 pm. I got a little tired the last mile of the day but I also worked all day.

                        Thanks everyone for the inspiration!

                            • Good morning ladies!

                              I hope you don't mind that I'm posting in this thread,since I am going with a more balanced approach with my macros.
                              Yesterday,I had my carbs set at 20%...I ate some avocado with salt and it seemed to help. But,I was a lagging a bit later in the day. I did the same with the avocado this morning,and upped my carbs a bit to see how I feel...

                              I have a Body Media Fit armband and it says I should eat 2115 calories and go for a burn of 2365(I was eating 1900 calories,as I stated before). But,I find that it's hard to reach my macros sometimes if I stay at 1900,so...today I'm over that and I'm concentrating on hitting my macros. I'm going to see how how I feel today and report back.

                              Off to work I go,have a good day!:0
