  • We have had this conversation several times in this thread. To get the same amount of sodium as bouillon cubes, you would have to add a ridiculous amount of salt to your food or broth. Yes, there are garbage ingredients in the commercial bouillon, but the amt of exposure in two cubes is minimal. Most of us have found that it is worth getting rid of the carb flu symptoms.

            The short answer is probably no but everyone is different so you would have to try it.

            Carbs, proteins & fats are oxidised differently by the body.

            Long tem low carbers will have a well developed glucose conversion pathway which means the body can oxidise protein easier than fat, hence the reason why ketosis does not occur if your protein is too high.

            I believe the key to NK is low carb & low(ish) protein numbers.

            This link looks at oxidisation if you can get past his ego & the way he writes:

            • Hi all. Could you take a look at my food diary for today and see where I can add some fat without adding protein or carbs, and without doing a shot of coconut oil or ingesting any sweeteners? I'm only at 66% for fat.

              Thanks!

                • I can't see your diary because I'm not on MFP, but one of the easiest ways to increase fat is to eat an ounce of macadamia nuts.

                  • What if you cant have nuts..

                    • Not that I tolerate any of these (): dairy, coconut (milk, butter, flakes), olives, avocados.

                      • I bought macadamia nuts yesterday --- holy cow! $15.99 a pound! Thats $1 an ounce! I can hear my wallet squeeling just thinking about it! Anybody know of a better place to get then? I bought them in bulk at Fred Meyer (Krogers). Maybe I'll look online.

                        I'm about at that same fat %age. Its hard for me to get above 70% - I don't do the oil shots --- GAG!

                        Weight is down today! I'm working to see 177 by the 31st. Thats my primal low - and thats my goal to bounce into April!

                          I would eat butter. But that's just me.

                          • I use LOTS of butter to keep my fat high! LOTS! I cook my eggs in 2 TB every morning. I put it on fish when I'm baking or frying - and I put it on veggies.

                              Jenn, I've been doing the bouillon sometimes with a tablespoon of butter in it.

                              Gets the fat up, keeps you fuller longer, and by God, it's freaking tasty as all get out.
