  • That's great. Glad to hear it didn't cause any major gastro issues.

    • I almost had to force myself to eat today. I had 1pm spoonful and just now now at 7pm had a burger patty, guac and grilled romaine with a yummy lemon dressing.

      I think I will cut back on the oil tomorrow. I'd like to eat one small meal and my usual dinner.

      I have a session with my trainer in the morning. He kicks my butt so I hope I am not a weakling. He does know what I am doing so no surprises there. He's been wanting me to do IF so this is just our oily version of that.

      Julia, I hope you survived all those kids.

      • Yanno, LV, I'm having a garage sale on Saturday.

        You bring those clothespins, I'll bring my CO, and we'll make
        an absolute fortune on unsuspecting patrons.

        Oceangrl - I think Goldschlager is the one thing that never gives
        me a hangover. Or at least it never did, and I can drink the stuff
        like water. Problem is that it's so tasty, it goes down so smoothly
        and then you're hammered about an hour later and no way out of it.

        Wine and beer is so much more gradual... ahem.

        Thanks for the prayers for my household full of kids! I survived!

        And, it wasn't painful at ALL.

        I don't know if it's a Mormon thing, or they are/were just very well behaved,
        but the big kids were helping and playing with the little kids (especially in the
        pool) and I didn't have to do jack crap!

        I don't know about YOU all, but when *I* was growing up, I certainly couldn't have
        given a shit about anyone else but myself when I was in a group of family.

        Go play with the little ones? ARE YOU CRAZY? Those are YOUR damn kids, NOT MINE,
        play with them yourself, YOU had them, not me.

        Maybe I've just always been a selfish bitch.

        ANYWAY, it was a sad day to come to an end. Those neighbors have been with us for
        5 years and they were fantastic.

        My boys both lost it about an hour after they left our street, which was kind of a surprise, as
        they really didn't show any emotion before that. . . . Even my husband was upset, but not crying
        of course. I definitely mourn the loss of really great neighbors and friends, but, I guess that's
        life. Sigh.

        We all drowned our sorrows in our absolutely most favorite pizza.

        The curious thing? Usually I can pork down a good 4 pieces of it in rapid succession,
        but last night I was ONLY able to eat two, and barely at that.

        This, my friends, is uncanny.

        I kept telling Mike "shit, I really want another piece of pizza, but I'll barf if I do!"

        Me thinks the oil, the oil dun be workin'.

        Carry on folks!

        • I increased my dosage. This morning I took 3 doses of 1-1/2 teaspoons each. No problems! Maybe tomorrow I'll move up to 2 teaspoons per dose.

          I need to get some light oil. They say the EVOO doesn't work, which is what I have been using. This afternoon I was tempted and ended up eating butter. Bad girl!

          • I tried this for about a day but I just can't bring myself to hold my nose and swallow oil. I enjoy the taste (smell) of coconut oil and it seems like such a waste not to smell it. However I can eat it 2-3 times and go all day without other food until dinner.

            • Hey ladies, was away for a couple of days for my DD's graduation, I was doing the potato hack, but as I was staying away in a hotel and going out for various dinners, decided to add the oil drinking to it as I didn't know when or what I'll be eating.

              I tried SLD before and it stopped working after a couple of months - i.e. my appetite wasn't affected by the oil any longer, but now it seems to worked well, so on both days I maanged to miss lunch without feeling hungry at all, which was great
              Will continue oil drinking, only am using ELOO, I don't trust unrefined CO for drinking (just on my hair lol) and the EVCO has a strong flavor !

              I ordered the book, hopefully it will arrive by today/tomorrow.

              I don't weigh myself, don't want to upset myself with small fluctuations, but managed to fit into my small tight lovely dress for DD graduation, without the need for spandex as well !! That was great, I haven't been able to fit into that dress for a few months now

              • My book finally arrived. Read some last night and will read more today. Meanwhile, I'm wondering how important has it been to your success to use flavorless oils? If I use coconut or EVOO and hold my nose, will that be effective?

                • I've read the first 1/2 dozen pages but don't have time to read the whole thread.

                  Is the only "real" part of the diet just having the oil twice a day? Or is there something else a person should be doing?

                    Janie, I havent read the book. I am going to order it or Kindle it today if its available. I have a jar of Red Palm oil that I bought because of health benefits and I was curious. It has what I consider a vile flavor and it is very strong. I plug my nose and cannot taste a thing except that moment when I swallow. I think you will be fine with co or evoo.

                    • Thank you, oceangrl. For now I'll stick w/the coconut b/c of its other health benefits, though I may pick up some refined walnut oil (he recommends that as an option in the book) on my next shopping day.

                      Sev'l years ago I read a book entitled "Calories Don't Count" by Herman Taller, M.D. It was published in the 1960's and he had patients eating low carb and ingesting doses of safflower, corn or sunflower oil. Apparently they had much success. Of course, when I read it, I was put off by the oils as they are no longer considered healthy, but I'm thinking there may be similarities to these plans.

                      Anyway, I'll know more after I read further.

                      • Janie how interesting about the other book. Things do seem to circle back around.

                        • I'm pretty sure any oil will work, flavored or unflavored, as long
                          as you don't taste it going down.

                          Oil is oil and all are pretty much the same calories per tablespoon.

                          If they're flavorless, what the heck does your body know what plant
                          they're coming from?

                          This morning I could only drink half of my coffee. Very odd.

                          Today I'm having an oil AND a potato day.

                          I have some sweet potato rounds baking in the oven right now for
                          when I get hungry.... which I'm not yet, but they'll be easy to pick
                          at when that happens.

                          I think today will be an extra low calorie day, as the thought of ANY food
                          has me feeling anything but hunger.

                          • Julia, I have been doing the same thing. I am not at all hungry until around 3. I have a cucumber and tomato salad and some grilled romaine with a lemon, evoo and herb dressing waiting for me. Then I will have a proper dinner at 7ish. I LOVE how I feel on this.
