You know, no good southern girl would NEVER get rid of her bacon drippings. It's liquid GOLD! This would add fat into your diet as well.

        I have been following this thread and I just want to say that you all are doing fabulous!

        I also wanted to update you on my progress...I've lost another pound,so I'm almost at my goal!

        I gotta admit,I was afraid of eating more fat,I was always led to believe that fat was the enemy!

        Not anymore!

        your progress is awesome!

        As Jenn said its heavy whipping cream However if the HWC causes tummy trouble you might look at coconut milk and as was suggested possible coconut oil (although, you may have to get used to an oil slick). Pickles and green/kalamata olives kill sweet cravings for me!! Although to be honest, I have not had many sweet cravings. Oh, also, I bought some cocoa nibs. They are roasted cocoa beans in small pieces. They are not sweet but have a chocolate flavor (I grind them and use like coffee) but a little nib meets that craving too.

        As for ketosis, it has taken a solid week to get into moderate ketosis. I am working for deep ketosis.

        • I wasn't sure if ya'll knew about these, but wanted to post the link just in case.

          ChocoPerfection Bars

          I ate them the first four weeks of eating primal and lost about 8-9 pounds. I am still eating them on Primal/LCHF. First weigh in is tomorrow so we shall see. I just eat about 1 piece a day.

          • In the recipe group on the first page there is a discussion with 2 links to websites with suggestions for healthy fat ideas for NK. In the group there is also a recipe for a non-dairy primal cream that is fantastic.

            Dr. Atkins book says it can take as long as 6 weeks of no cheating for some to get into ketosis.

            I do dairy, HWC, cream cheese, gouda, so far it doesn't seem to trigger anything.

                Also, one other thing. For me..I do use 1 tablespoon of liquid creamer in my first cup of joe in the morning. Non-dariy and lactose free. I know..it has sugar...but I count the carbs and keep carbs in my range.(5%) The CO coffee is for my "to go" mug in the morning.
                Great thx - another question (sorry been away to long) what is CO - coconut oil??

                    Yes, I use refined to omit the coconut taste.

                    homeontherange Oligofructose is a natural sweetner derived from plant fibers.

                    • Karin, I don't know but it promotes the "excretion of toxins" and that doesn't sound pleasant!

                        Think my biggest problem is my hormonal inbalance - haven't had TOM since March last year :-( Would jump for joy to get it again (stopped taking the PIL after the cyst was removed in March on oviary - as big as a tennis ball) mmmmmm

                            Hmmm. Did not know this but could be one reason why I don't suffer from "bathroom issues." Yes, please..more chocolate.
