    • great!

      I made some bone broth from pastured pork. Haven't tried it yet, it's chilling.

      I make it in the pressure cooker and then cool it down there, as it's sealed and sterile, and then refrigerate. Since I am dubious about this pork's fat profile I'll skim the fat off probably.

      Today, dinner was this wonderful cod, and curried spinach. I might have a bit of honey tonight.

      • Nice! We make our bone broth in a slow cooker. Fortunately, it has a locking lid, so we can put it outside on the patio when the weather heats up.

        Mmmmmm, cod sounds yummy! I miss the fish and chips in Scotland. In the tiny fishing village where I lived, they fried everything in lard. Cornmeal crust on the haddock.

              Ouch! Headaches are no fun. I haven't had one since my first few days going vlc. Making sure I double salt all my food now.

              • breakfast was a bit of pulled pork, not much, and lunch was the rest, maybe 35g of protein, then dinner was a delicious homemade chicken and cauliflower, both Indian style, and too many pistachios in between. Maybe 70g of protein today.

                Still very ketogenic. I'm digging this a lot. Cravings are something that is diminishing as time goes on...

                      I pay ZERO attention to calories. I find that they are irrelevant. Once you get your hormones back into balance, you'll burn off calories you don't need. Brown Adipose Tissue can burn calories, your body can literally heat up and get rid of them. Calorie deficits can help some people lose weight but they are no solution to being healthy.

                      • Breakfast was butter tea, fasted until around noon.

                        Lunch was leftover indian chicken and two eggs, about 35g of protein.

                        Ate about a cup of pistachio nuts (in shell).

                        Feeling really good today.

                          • wow, I had a wonderful grass fed skirt steak for dinner with a grass fed herb compound butter, and broccoli with garlic olive oil. Ate a total of perhaps 35g of beef protein, so sticking to my plan so far on reducing protein and very low carb.

                            • woke up with a toe cramp. Took a small amount of potassium and it's gone.

                              I am still getting some muscle cramping but it goes away with magnesium or potassium almost at once. Sometimes sea salt seems necessary too...
