  • I had a steak yesterday and some nuts and a few pieces of bacon, that's all. I didn't finish the steak, but brought it home. And had a salad and some salsa (just ate it with a fork as it was thick enough) and a few asparagus spears. Delish.

    No real cravings to speak of.

      • today it was 1.5 eggs (split 3 with my wife) with loads of raw sheeps cheese, leftover bacon and butter

        Later on I ate a few figs and a handful of grapes, a total of maybe 20g carbs.

        Now it's grassfed steak and collards for dinner

          I LOVE spinach dip...and it sounds GREAT with pepperoni slices. Last weekend I pigged out on my wife's spinach and artichoke dip which is fantastic. Very high in fat

            I'm going to make some pepperoni chips in the morning and take that, cheese chips and spinach dip for lunch. I'm going to make some spinach artichoke dip one night this week for lunches.

              sounds great.

              I bought a small piece of veal liver and I'm going to make a pate for the next few days.

              last night the grass fed steak and collards were great, and I put a bunch of extra butter in the collards. Grass fed steak is very lean. This was a skirt steak, very chewy but delicious. I ate the usual amount for me, about the amount in a deck of card sized piece more or less.

              This morning I'm fasting until 2PM, not even butter tea, just tea or water.

              • I made regular spaghetti for the family with homemade meat sauce dinner. I sautéed some broccoli slaw and used that as my pasta and it was brilliant.

                • made pate this morning and ate some with pork rinds after my butter tea. Delish!

                  yesterday was fasting until around noon then ate steak leftovers and chicken, probably a little too much protein all at once, felt over full. Maybe 50g of protein. Ate a small dinner of fish and asparagus. And about 20g of carbs worth of blueberries and cherries.

                    I love this idea. And it's been awhile since I made something like broccoli slaw. Great ideas.

                      • I consume 250 grams of protein a day and under 10% . Mixed meals change insulin response , but yes a whey isolate shake by itself can create a insulin response of straight carbs.. Now take that shake and add a tablespoon of macadamia nut oil and it's a different story.

                        • I'm consuming around 60g of protein, maybe 80g, per day.

                          • Yesterday I drank butter tea then had some high butter pate that I made, and I felt nauseous for about 90 minutes. Too much fat. I took a walk and felt better.

                            Actually yesterday I didn't feel very good. Woke up with a headache. I am taking Astaxanthin again and wondering if this is the culprit. I wanted to make sure it was something I don't tolerate as it seems to hold a lot of benefit. I'm taking 4mg per day.

                            Yesterday I also had cramping in my toes and had to take potassium. I just had so much sodium during the day and no potassium and this causes me to get cramping which is painful. I have NoSalt and I dissolve a bit in water and drink and that ends the cramps.

                            I also had to take two ibuprofen yesterday.

                            The only thing I can think of that is different is I'm eating a small amount of fruit. Could this be causing me to feel blah like this? It's actually been several days and I've been wondering if my body is adjusting to that. I stress it's a small amount and I don't feel cravings for more. Like 10 cherries which is supposedly 10g of effective carbs. That's not much, but it's more than I had for several months earlier.

                            • Richard,

                              I don't read your thread very often but it would be nice to understand why you are keeping this WOE for so long. Any particular reason ?

                              • @dkJames, you can sustain eating this way for a lifetime. There are people who do it. I have a friend that has been eating this and has zero health issues whatsoever. She's been following this WOE for about 10 years. I know personally that I feel better this way.
