    This was really interesting, thanks for sharing. I'm not sure if it's low thyroid symptoms I was having. I wasn't cold at all. Actually I've been running pretty hot lately, just had to open the windows to get some cool air. I will keep my eye on it though, to see if I develop any other symptoms.

      Marissa, wonderful.

      I'm excited. I changed my macro ratios around and my ketone levels are on the rise again with glucose being stable. So increasing my protein a tad hasn't affected ketosis. I continue my downward trend with weight loss. My energy level has stabilized instead of feeling that shot of energy when I consume my fatty meals. All in all, I'm pretty happy as I truck along.

          I don't get a shot of energy when I consume fat. Interesting how we are each different. Blood pressure was 107/68 this morning, which is sort of typical these days. I was around 120/80 or 117/78 before...

          This morning I had some butter tea, and then ate some bone broth (wow, delicious) and some nuts (almonds, and a few pistachios) and then ate for lunch a small bit of grass fed short ribs with extra grass fed butter...

          • Made my best batch of Well Fed Chocolate Chili to date this morning!!! Had it for lunch, so delicious!! Other than that, doing really well today, although feeling in a snacky mood right now. Not hungry, just snacky. *sigh*

            • You might've already answered this somewhere in this thread, but are you guys doing dairy? It seems like things like heavy cream would be perfect for high fat/low carb/low-ish protein.

                i personally avoid cream as I think casein is problematic and cream does have significant protein...

                  I use heavy cream in my coffee and over berries. Yumm!

                    The cream I have has no protein.

                    • cool! I use coconut milk sometimes but at this point I won't because it has carbs in it. I am cooking with some onion and garlic and that is all the carbs I'm planning on at the moment, plus what is in nuts and things. Probably under 20g and maybe under 15g.

                        I have no idea what my carbs are today. I know they are pretty low. Do you count total or net carbs?

                        • I have another question. Does it count as an IF if you have cream in your coffee in the morning but nothing else?

                            any time you're consuming calories, you're ending your fast. an all-fat meal may prevent insulin spikes, but it doesn't mean you're still fasting.

                            the same goes for bulletproof coffee. yes, I've found that it keeps hunger at bay so I eat less through the entire day, but I'm well aware that my fast has ended.

                              Love dairy and do it on occasion and tolerable in small amounts. Eliminated it for the most part and I think it helped my stall.

                                Yeah, that makes sense.
