  • welcome MJam! re: avocados, California and Florida ones are different in macros. Make sure you are getting the right info. Fat IS lovely. This is a great support forum. Ask if you get stuck.

    • They are "mission" ones from Mexico...so Cali I guess, Cali and Mexico being so close. I ate the whole thing, it was average sized and counted it as 15g...is that right?

      • that sounds right and depending where you plan to go with carbs kind of depends if its too much. Do you you MFP? A lot of us do. We "friend" each other so we can look at each others food diaries. Its great feedback. You are welcome to join us in that as well.

        • Mjam, I'm only counting net carbs (subtracting fiber from carbs) and that has been working well for me. Most of the carbs in an avacado are fiber, which do not make sugar in the body.

          • good point Ashley!! For me, I count a carb as a carb.

            • Oooo thanks Ashley. I saw the "net carb" thingy when I was looking for the carb amount and got a little confused as to what that meant. I might do that because all the carbs I eat are from fruit or veggies anyways not twinkies and pies (MMmm) so that's helpful, thanks!

              • I dont think anyone eats twinkies or pies around here...its not primal/paleo.

                lol

                  • Thanks for the info on the ketostix. I've been losing like a champ but started the ketostix yesterday and was dark then today was more moderate and I gained weight. I'm not concerned (I keep chanting that to myself) because I know I shouldn't weigh daily AND for whatever reason Sunday always seems to be a higher day. Sundays I swim but Saturday isn't really any different than any other day. Anywho...I appreciate the info. I might look into one of those blood machines. Like the rest of you, I really want to know! If I'm not in NK at 40 carbs but I am at 30, then I want to do what works.

                    I was insulin resistant before and after my first born 7 years ago. Going low carb almost immediately worked for me to the point that I didn't have to take Metformin anymore (I didn't seem to work for me anyway). At the time I also had PCOS pretty badly...still got pregnant...but the PCOS has calmed down without the grains as well. Primal for me is about no dairy, no sugar and NK.

                    I am SO thankful for this thread.

                      Speaking of lard, I need to look into RMS123's lard cookies!

                      • I sat down and figured the ratios for my standard breakfast and lunches, and how to make them closer to 80%fat. The Triclops breakfast was already there, but I needed to do some tweaking to my burger and salmon lunches. Luckily, this will just mean more sauce!

                        I do need to cut back on my meat portions, and maybe my vegetables at dinner. When I eat vegetables, I EAT vegetables. 3 cups cooked at one meal would not be uncommon. Side note: I always have to laugh(in my head) at vegetarians who hardly ever seem to eat vegetables. They should really call themselves graintarians. My regular daily dose is always the 5 minimum servings, and usually 8. And that's all veg, as I hardly eat fruit any more.

                        Also made up my snacks list:
                        Liverwurst
                        Brie
                        Pork rinds with sour cream or guacamole
                        Slice of quiche
                        whipped vanilla cream
                        cream cheese clouds
                        coco-chocs with macadamia nuts

                        I'm not going to be doing this to the extent of tracking my macros daily(or really, even at all ) but I think just knowing that some standard meal options that I enjoy are at 75-80% will get me in the right direction.

                        • I am trying to figure out the nutritional info for my dinner which is homemade elk chili, is there an easier way to do it? I am using the sparkpeople recipe calculator and it's a freaking nightmare! It makes me not want to make a combined meal like that and to just eat all the stuff separate.

                          • I use my fitness pal and enter the recipe and it calculates it great and EASY.

                            • I turn my back for 2 minutes and there are pages and pages to read

                              I would like to link with other people on MFP so I can see how they keep there fat intake up. How do I do this?
