    Everyone has given you such great suggestions. One thing that's good for me when I'm busy is to hard boil a half to a whole dozen eggs. This way, if I've had such a long day that cooking seems like a chore, I grab a few of those and a salt shaker and that's dinner. They're also portable, but I'd put them in a baggie so people don't keep looking at you wondering where that sulfur smell is coming from.

    Make-ahead eggs can be any combination of eggs/meat/veggies you like. If you bake these in muffin tins and freeze them, you can either reheat them in a microwave, or take them with you and eat them at room temp later in the day. They defrost quickly and don't have to be hot to taste good.

    Nearly 4 kilos gone in 6 days!!!!
    Nice work! (Oh to be young again, and able to lose eight pounds in six days!) Keep on keepin' on!

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

      The suggestions have been phenomenal! Thanks for all the feedback and piece of mind. Finding it hard to come up with a dinner meal to have with the parents seeing as they are non-paleo and want me to get regular checkups with the doc to make sure my cholesterol and what not are all good. Very skeptical and worried people they are. So any dinner meals? Was thinking stuffed capsicum/peppers with mushroom cheese herbs and whatnot, do share your great experiences

          Keep in mind that as you are losing weight your blood lipids may look a little wacky as you're pulling from your own fat stores. So a blood lipid test is probably not going to be too valuable until after you've reached your goal weight and stabilized for a little while. This is just from what I recently heard in one of Chris Kresser's podcasts with Chris Masterjohn as a guest (I think it was the second or third installment with the two of them).

          As for advice, stick with whole, real foods. Avoid the processed stuff and refined grains/sugars. Make sure you're eating adequate protein/fat, plenty of veggies and a little bit of fruit should be fine. Personally, I make a lot of stirfrys with some meat/veg or roast veggies in the oven, etc. There are plenty of primal meals that should be fine with CW parents. I also really like coconut products ie. coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut milk, avocados are great too with eggs or meat and veggies. Honestly just sautee some veggies in a pan with some oil, cook up some meat and you're good to go.
