    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.

    Well done Julia. Hope you picked up that token today.
    Same again??

        • Children!

          You stop that right this instant.

          Don't make Mother throw down.

          Yep, picked up my token and have adhered it to my forehead for the world to
          see.

          On to month two!

          Finally got hungry for my yam, but then got halfway through and was "meh".

          Guess I'll finish it AND my cold ass coffee, later.... we shall see.

          • Lol Julia. Long story. Huge congrats on the token.

            I did just have my little lunch of veggies. It was so satisfying. Having a hard time wrapping my head around not having protein 3 times a day. I feel light and energetic. Staying away from the scale until Julia says she weighed herself. Pimped it back to my neighbor.

            • So impressed with your reports of decreased hunger! I tested 1/2 tablespoon doses today to see my body's reaction based on ekatherine's experience and the author's warning about possible tummy upsets. Was okay but no significant shift in hunger. I think I will plan on a nice breakfast with a full tablespoon of oil at least an hour later and see how it goes. Hoping to move to an accurate dose and be able to skip lunch. Did it take you some time to zero in on a correct dose? He says in the book that it could take a week or, for some, significantly longer.

              • Janie for me, it's more when I gobble it. I may still be playing around with that. Or maybe I am still playing with amounts. I am going to leave it the way it is now and see where that leads me. :0)

                • I was able to take an ounce of macadamia oil late this afternoon with no problems. I am astounded how quickly my body adapted.

                    • That's great, eKatherine. You seem to have adapted quickly. I think I have some macadamia oil around here, and might try it as well.

                        Just ordered the book. Decided to get the hard copy instead of Kindle version so I can lend it to people.

                        • Alright, so I happened to run into this thread about 2 hours after my last meal. So I figured what the hell, I'll take a tablespoon of CO, what harm could come of it?

                          Yuck. That is ugly stuff to get down. And it's been about half an hour or so, and I swear I can feel that ball of fat sitting in the bottom of my gut like a brick. Also feeling a bit lightheaded, but that's probably because I cycled 16km (10 miles) today and have only eaten about 1300 calories (incl. CO above) and have another hour before I can eat because of this little hack I just tried.

                          Anyway....we'll see what happens. But man....that is nasty stuff to swallow in the raw.

                          Also curious how they turned the two lines of instructions into an actual book.

                          • Ladies, I know some people in the past also tried butter shots (nose clipped) so if you can't manage the oil or you think its unhealthy try butter/Ghee shots.

                            btw anyone got heartburn from drinking oil/fat? What's the best way to not make it persist, I worry a lot as I can get that (think I have low HCL) but wont have enzymes after drinking oil in case I get more heartburn lol
                            I may have to introduce some fruit/pineapple, its the only way I don't get heartburn if I am drinking fat!

                            • I've done a scoop -o- butter before, but the saltiness doesn't help
                              with the "flavorless calories" for me. Seems I know I'm eating delicious
                              butter, flavor or not! Ha!

                              Never had HB with drinking the oil before.

                              Maybe eat one of those chewable antacids an hour before you take the oil?

                              Can't finish my coffee again today. Just bored with it. So crazy. Coffee is my reason
                              for waking up HAPPY in the morning!

                              Up extra early today too at 5AM - garage sale at 8 goin' on here.

                              Yesterday wasn't a too low of a calorie day, about 1450, but I was busy all day putting
                              stuff in the garage for today's sale, so on my feet in and out of the house for 5 hours
                              straight.

                              Walked about 5 miles.

                              We'll see what happens today!

                              • Julia did you pinch your nose while having the butter? I think if one does it the recommended way with nose pinching followed immediately with a glass of water is should be flavourless... just an option for anyone who doesn't like oils or believe its unhealthy, I think the oil for me is convenient, especially if I have to take it at work, I can sneak in a spoon easily.

                                Lets wait and see re the HB, I hope eating potatoes and veg will be sufficient to stop it from happening.

                                My book arrived today, reading it s we speak / write lol.

                                Hope your sale goes well and you make loadsa money x
