    While I don't think I could ever go ZC (love my sweet potatoes too much), when I did experiment with verrrrry low carb, I was very clear headed, mood was stable, but I also felt like a fucking VULCAN. Like my emotions had FLATLINED. That and my heart was racing at night and it woke me up. So I figured since I have no need to be ZC or even VLC, I stopped. But it is fascinating nonetheless.
    Wow! I said something sig worthy. I'm honored.
    IME, VLC does make you feel Vulcan in the sense that nothing gets to you and bugs you but it's not like you stop having emotions. I cried when my father passed away but I didn't fall into a black hole of despair and depression. That's the distinction for me.

    • Ceviche made with clams is great too. When I was housesitting in Baja I was living right on the shoreline and these Mexican guys would come by hunting clams and then I saw that they had a whole ceviche making operation going too. I offered them the use of my kitchen in the shade with a ceiling fan and a sink and they were delighted. The barter arrangement was that they paid rent for the use of the kitchen in fresh clam ceviche so I go a new bowl every week all summer. Yummmm.

        So good, I'm having the same lamb shoulder chops again for dinner tonight. (I had a bunch of meat defrosting that was the leftovers before I got my recent HUGE meat pickup of Grass fed lamb, goat, and beef. I wanted to use up the older stuff first.

        I drank the last of my frozen wheatgrass juice yesterday. I had a friend who almost died of liver problems and he swore that the wheatgrass saved his life (giving up his big beer habit may have had something to do with it too.) So I drank it for a while but now I would really rather have the space in the freezer for more (MOAR?) meat.

            i think clams are what we call cockles. i make toroi out of raw mussels and vinegar and puha ( which is a bitter green ). sow thistle? cockles i do eat raw and i can easily get them at low tide so i will try a mexican type clam ceviche recipe next week as they look tasty.

            PB do you find you eat all the fat on the lamb chops now? i never used to but i like the taste now.

            • oooh pork and puha! I have to ask my dad how he made that.
              mmm fatty lamb chops! I am still working out cooking it right so the fat is not all chewy. When I do right my children love to eat the fat.

              • fast sear the lamb chops! i love the lamb rinds if you render tallow from the lamb fat. pork and puha is prob boil up. super yummy if you dodge the dough balls. and even better then next day when it gets reheated.

                • Paleobird how different are the macro percentages that you are eating now to previous ketogenic protocol you have been using to control your epilepsy?

                  • I find it hard to limit myself to only 2 lamb chops.

                      I eat any that is tender but give the gristly bits to the dog. It's those puppy eyes.

                      I've been experimenting with using my home made bone broth concentrate to cook with. I cooked the bone broth down to compact storage containers and really stiff gelatinousness. When it melts in the pan it provides both fat and moisture plus yummy flavors.

                      Probably pretty similar but I'm not really counting grams these days. Most of my carbs are dairy.

                      • Mmmmmmm. Love lamb chops. Grilled nicely with some pepper. There was a little Sushi restaurant in Oakland, CA I used to go to. They would often have a special of grilled lamb chop done perfectly! I used to eat about 4 or 5 of those.

                        Damn, now I'm hungry.

                          how much weight of meat would that be? i can get lamb or hogget chops in approx 200g packs which is usually about 2 bone in chops so i have to only have 2 if i am not feeding the kids as well.

                            There's a carnivore after my own heart. When are you getting off deployment again soldier?

                            It was about 1.5 lbs raw but by the time you subtract the bones and give the gristly bits to the dog, I probably ate about a pound of meat.

                            Chops can vary a lot in size and amount of meat/other stuff ratio. I only had two yesterday but I had breakfast too. Today I just had tea with hwc until dinner.

                            I'm enjoying just letting my appetite dictate and not having any fixed schedule.

                              Can't really say exactly on here. Although, I'll be home for my son's HS graduation. I'm already tasting the big Ribeye with extra butter I'll be having at Ruth's Chris when I get home. Nom nom nom.

                              • I get lamb at Trader Joe's. The chops are tiny. Always 5 to a package and I think it's about a pound. I get three and The Man gets two.
