  • Sometimes I think I should tattoo 'Just remember, the first hit is always free' on the back on my hands.

    I found the willpower link interesting, although I was annoyed by the 'sign up for my free webinar' pitch instead of just getting the information. But I still signed up.

    • Pebbles, you have me convinced. I am going to add a cube to the cup of broth I plan to start drinking when I get home. I will start with 1 a day, and let my body get used to it for a week or so, then figure out when to do the second one.

      • We are cooking a turkey this weekend. I plan to add my bouillon cubes to my bone broth when I have some to use.

          • So i get home but the bones have not given up their marrow. Then i remember reading (on this thread i think) that some one used their bones more than once. So i decided to strain off the liquid, which it turns out is a beautiful rich broth, and reuse the bones. I am freezing in ice cube trays and will drop one cube of this broth and one bouillon cube into a cup of hot water every afternoon. The broth is way too rich to use single strength. I am excited.

            • Given the issues I had when eating salted butter I think I will wait a while before using bullion & continue with my unsalted bone broth. When I get rid of the shoulder problem $ can start exercising properly again I will think about the bullion then but onby if i can find one 3wthout msg, glutin, sugar or yeast

              • My meal out went well. I avoided a starter (nothing primal) & dessert. Just had the burger & a small side salad, no nightshades, along with my own dressing. I enjoyed every mouthful & the company was great too.

                Having phoned in advance, they made me a special burger of meat & onion only as they are all homemade & they were making a new batch anyway. If only all restaurants provided the same service. I shall definitely go there again.

                I did think about going for the steak if everyone else had a starter but was shocked to find the protein content would have been at least 3 days worth which would have knocked me right out of NK, so the burger was absolutely the right option.

                    Depends on where you live. In my part of the world you would call the home made stuff 'stock', and the dehydrated stuff would be 'stock cubes' or 'powdered stock'. Or you could buy 'liquid stock' in various long life packagings in the supermarket. 'Boullion' would generally be thought of as the fancy french term for stock. 'Broth' would mean soup, but you wouldn't normally see the term outside a Dickens novel or an American Recipe book.

                    Language is a funny thing. No wonder people get confused.

                      We eat out a lot. My husband loves to eat out. Last night we went to a pub where they serve my favorite "ass food" as I love to call it. I ordered a cobb salad and wound up eating most of the goodies and some of the iceberg.

                      I love the idea of phoning ahead to get what you need.

                      • Today will be day three for me. I'm feeling good! Slept wonderfully, for me, last night. Seven hours! Sprang out of bed. Not groggy as I usually am.

                        My suggested macros are:
                        33 - carbs
                        66 - protein
                        132 - fat
                        1584 - calories
                        I thought the calories were crazy, but decided to go for broke.

                        day 1
                        18 - carbs
                        59 - protein
                        146 - fat
                        1647 - calories

                        day 2
                        24 - carbs
                        42 - protein
                        153 - fat
                        1802 - calories

                        I've lost 2-3 pounds.

                        I made Clouds yesterday and yumm!

                        So far so good!

                        • Checking in!

                          This am I had lost 1.3 lbs since Tues, and down 5.5 overall. Yay!! Slow and steady works for me. Yesterday my macros tracked in at 72/20/8. Protein was on the higher side at 69 g, and fats were lower at 114 g. I need to work on getting my fats up a bit. Might have to mine through the thread for some recipes.

                          Feeling, good, and sleeping well.

                            Me too. I like something hot in the mornings and while I do drink just plain hot water, that doesn't always cut it. I'm liking the coffee with the heavy cream...it's my treat on the way in to work.

                            Wow, congratulations!

                            I'm holding, but I'm not losing weight. Can't say that my measurements are less either, but I AM feeling good, so I'll run with that for a while. Outside of the odd restless night, I'm also sleeping a bit better myself, so that's also good.

                              • Start of Day 4. Still feeling sleepy and tired. Kind of worn out feeling. Transition can be a bitch. Scale is down 5 pounds since Monday morning though. Love that water weight shed. Only 7 more pounds to go to get back to my primal low...

                                Might check for evidence of ketosis today by peeing on a stick. Not expecting anything, but will check anyway.

                                Saturday night, DH and I are going to a fundraiser. They're serving all you can eat Mexican food. While I would love to have a sancho (large soft taco on it's side covered in nacho cheese sauce), I will stick with the tacos, no shell. I'll eat it with sour cream and salsa, although ranch dressing sounds delicious right now. I'm sure that's just the transition cravings talking, though.
