Eat More Fat! The Nutritional Ketosis Challenge continues...
Just popping in as a lurker. I'm working on the MF (more fat) part, but not low carb. First step is just replacing white rice with non-grain carbs, then I'll think about reducing carbs. This is for mental health as well as gut health (dealing with chronic constipation for over 4 months now).
I am awaiting test results to see if I have SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth). It can be treated with a HFLC-like diet, or GAPS, but antibiotics are quicker. I would probably do both, for at least a month, so this thread will be my knowledge-collection resource, and I will pitch in with any tips where ever I can.
For one, those dealing with acne: dab tea tree oil on the cysts or white heads twice a day. Make sure not to touch your face! I do not wash my face except with baking soda, once a week. I just rinse in the shower, and lightly dry when I get out.
I just don't seem to have the time or inclination for making bone broth from scratch. :*( Also gelatinous broth stuff kind freaks me out.
i cover mine and keep it real low, i can ignore it from then on till i decide it is done. i dont like slow cookers but you can ignore it in there too. when it is hot, it isnt gelatinous at all. and it tastes so much better than the cubed stuff.
working on downing the protein and remaining carnivorous here. i did find a recipe for mini meat loaves the other day which was saying you could wrap them in streaky bacon but that would up the fat content *tsk*tsk lol but that is definitely one good idea as i am not so keen on bacon on its own. i am also not into throwing away egg whites, way too much economic priveledge for me to deal with doing that. i can always make pav for the kids. but that is like 14 egg whites a week which is one huge pav so i may need to start making them for all my friends too!
I do have a slow cooker but I share it with a roomie (and it is his, actually) so I can't tie it up for too long, since we both love slow cooking. :P And he would definitely not be cool with me leaving the stove on all day while we are both at work and our pets are home alone (I wouldn't be cool with it either, when it comes down to it, heh.)
I know it's not gelatinous when hot, but it is when cold, right? I feel like that would put me off from it. :*( I dunno. Maybe I'll just try the bouillon IF and only if I can find one with ingredients that don't bother me. Otherwise I'll just skip it.
guacamole and carnitas sounds way better than a bunch of oil.
Ha! I could not agree more. There is a great taqueria across the street from my office. I get a side of carnitas for $2.00 ans what looks like 1/2 cup of fresh guacamole for $1.50. Together those become brunch for me. It's heavenly! I tried the carne asada but it was kinda dry and not fatty enough. I might try the chicken next week.
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!"
