    I actually stole the term from Cori, I believe. It's become a common term around here.

        If I use coconut oil on my skin, my dog thinks I am one giant lollypop and won't leave me alone.

        • oddly enough, while I tolerate it very well internally, externally it gives me a rash.

          • Eh, we're doing madras curry. Spices, chicken, cream, stock, 1 zuke, and 1 onion will feed 4 adults, more if you stretch it with rice.
            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!"

              hahaha sorry but this makes me laugh. Mine have never been around while I've got coconut oil on my skin. Imagine the yellow one would lick me incessantly. He used to lick my legs "dry" as I was toweling off in the shower as a pup. He's a weird dog.

              • The Russian Circus is here in the backyard and I'm ready to tell the ringmaster to get the F out. Probably the worst one since the ablation. Macros are going to be off today. I am craving cheese and chicken(odd yes) right now and have indulged a bit after having alll my macros figured out. Plus, I've got a tinge of depression as well. I think my head is trying to look at food for comfort right now cause I don't have much else to comfort it with. Meh.

                  Mine is always rough. Cramps, sickness, headaches, BLOAT like no other. I was hoping that maybe going primal would ease things up a bit, but I guess not.

                    It never helped me either. That's partially why I had the ablation done. It was much easier to do that then have to worry about going disability for one week every month for what is left of my child bearing years.

                      I have some unrefined CO which I bought for cooking before I knew better. Would it be OK to use this on my skin? (whilst avoiding my dog of course!)

                        Funnily enough, mine has. There is no 7lb weight gain & cramps or bloating anymore. It is bliss!

                        • Well, I've only been at this three weeks. I'll give it more time before I give up on it helping. Though, I won't sit here and count on it. There is a history in my family of brutal periods and a lot of uterine issues. I think I'm fighting genetics here.

                          • I have to admit, during TOM is the time I really miss being on the pill, 3 days and I could barely tell. Of course this last one I had did not even last a full day. Now I know that means I am in for some hormonal fun, but for now, it was good.

                            • My cycle has always been screwy. Never comes the same day. Always jumps around like a heroin addict. One month it'll be light and easy, then I'll pay for it ten fold the next month. It's like it KNOWS it took it easy on me. Stupid body. I'm still bracing for my weigh-in tomorrow.

                              • More from my blood ketones experiment. I hope the attachment shows up. On my chart, the ketosis line goes with the data above it since I test first thing in the AM. So, my .4 results on the 9th of February actually go with my tracking from the 8th. I'm not sure if it's that sensitive...meaning what I ate yesterday immediately affects my ketones today...but there you go.

                                I highlighted the day I was able to keep my protein around 55g (56 actually) and I'm not able to see any clear advantage as a result of that. I also highlighted the highest fat day of 146g and didn't see any real change in the data then either. The 2 days with the highest readings for ketones were the days I went running then tested (no water, no food, etc before testing...just forgot to do it until I got back). So, I'm still experimenting. Any requests since I have the machine?

                                I'm thinking about doing a reading every other day since things aren't changing enough to necesitate a daily tracking but I'm not sure what to change other than to try to lower the protein to try to get deeper into ketosis. Thoughts?

                                Oh, the one day that has 2 reaadings was a day I tested at the end of the day to see if things changed dramatically based on the time of day.
