    shrinkinglo, I also have about 100 pounds to lose, so I can empathize. I have also let go of the scale for now. I did do a set of preliminary measurements so that I can boast when I reach goal! I will do my next set the day before I go to my annual doctor's visit, which is March 4th.

    GP, many restaurants have their menus online. Maybe you can find out what they have and pre-determine what you will eat to help you stay inline. Unless of course you are looking forward to straying. Hope you feel better soon, this years cold seem to be the lingering kind.

      Don't think I've found ketosis yet. I know that sugar yesterday probably bounced me out of however close I was.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

        abc123, I tend to eat very little meat, and what meat I do eat is of a very fatty nature.

        5:30am Bullet Proof Matcha=14gbutter, 30g HWC, 1tsp green tea (matcha) powder, a few drops of stevia, add about 12oz hot water (just off a boil) and whirl it with a stick blender
        7:30am Breakfast Smoothie=8oz Coconut Milk (carton, unsweetened), 8oz Almond Milk (carton, unsweetened), 20g of whey (znatural, unflavored unsweetened), few drops stevia, a tablespoon of espresso granules
        2:30pm 2 hard boiled eggs, small haas avocado, 1T homemade mayo, 1.5 oz gouda, chocolate mate with coconut milk (canned)
        7:00pm 2C mixed greens, half bell pepper, 1/2C cucumber, 2T olive oil, 2T ACV, protein source (small chuck eye steak last night sauteed in butter, shrimp scampi the night before, chicken thigh with cream sauce the night before that)

        In between I drink about 130oz of various fluids=teas and water and occasionally bouillon if I feel I need the salt.

          I've been to this restaurant several times and much of the menu is primal-ish, fortunately! But the chef keeps sending all sorts of extra goodies to the table to impress Lady Friend. And every time I go, I trip and fall into potatoes. My true nemesis will be dessert. I can't say no to sopaipillas dipped in burnt orange caramel.

          Oh, please don't let this cold linger! It's utter misery.

            I'm in!

            Been secretly doing EMF with Shangri-La since January 17th.

            Starting Weight - 127.0

            Was going to weigh today but, the Russian Circus (thanks Cori!) is
            here for me as well, accompanied by lotsa bloat.

            From January 17th until yesterday, macros looked like this, averaged:

            Calories - 1683 per day

            26%P
            13%C
            61%F

            =

            94g protein
            40g carbs
            94g fat

            And that's all averaged. I had good days and bad days, but that's what it all averaged out
            to anyway.

            So my main goal is to lower calories (I, like many other people, when I imbibe in the Devil's
            Swill, I eat stupid shit THAT night AND all day the next day, so alcohol is OUTTA HERE), and
            attempt to get down to around 115 one of these days (and also fit my macros within the EMF
            guidelines).

            I'd forgotten what a crack bomb ketosis was once it finally kicked in. The other day around 3pm
            something snapped and I became a cleaning machine until SEVEN THIRTY. WHACK!

            I'm also going to be taking my temperature and when it goes down, I'm going to overeat a pile
            of REAL FOOD carbs. I've been down the zero carb path before and I know that a few months in,
            something goes crazy, so hopefully the carb up will reset that and I can keep on keeping on.

            All right, carry on ladies, you all are doing GREAT!

                  I'm experiencing a massive headache today. A lot of stress from last night. Not going to hash it out here, but if you want to know more, feel free to look in my journal. Anywho, I'm wanting a diet coke at lunch and am probably going to drink it.

                    I'm curious about this as well. Ketosis has been my goal more or less with how I am eating, and I actually find it pretty simple to stay sub 20 carbs.

                    I don't think I'm eating a lot of (or even enough) fat though, and I don't really know how to increase that. :3 I don't have money to buy things like filet mignon, so what do you suggest the fats come from.

                    In before "avocado" because try and try and try, no luck - I freaking hate avocado. :P
                    yay!

                      I worked on upping my fat last month as well. Before I was doing more of a high protein moderate fat low carb. I still keep my protein a bit higher than what you all have been doing but I am weight training and believe that my body needs a bit more protein. I started Jan at 182 and ended it at 177. All in all I am happy with the results esp since I had a few glasses of red wine per week along the way.

                        I have yet to buy filet mignon while doing this! I did buy a chuck eye steak yesterday (4.49/lb) that was pretty awesome.

                          foodie, congats! The macro goals in the first post are definitely just a guideline. Every body is different, and the trick is to find your own sweet spot through N=1 experimentation.

                              My days vary, but this is what I typically eat:

                              B: 2-3 bacon pieces or sausage links, bone broth w/qtr cube bouillon and coffee with HWC and a tbsp of CO
                              L: Salad with bacon and olive oil based or ranch dressing, or cream soups or omelets
                              D: Whatever meat I cook for dinner.

                              I don't snack hardly at all anymore and try to keep everything within plan. It's not difficult to do this once you get in a groove.

                                Man it is SO HARD to find high fat ground beef. The grassfed ground at whole foods is always extra lean 90%.
                                yay!
