Karin, yep, pretty much what I have planned for this past week but adding fat if I need it instead of nuts. Gotta stay out of the nuts!
today I had 2 BP matcha teas this morning, and this afternoon I am going to add a pat of butter to my broth. In addition to my normal meals. I already posted in MFP except for dinner.
I dunno about the fat, probably animals in the North had more fat, or maybe in winter? That is what I am wondering. If you took the entire edible parts of the animal, what is the fat to protein ratio.
DS is a chef & has done a butchery course. He says he would consider a top piece of meat to be 2:[COLOR=#333333]1 fat to protein. Not sure wild game would have this sort of ratio though. I guess it would depend on the season[/COLOR]
Ugh. I fell into the stupid nuts today making some for DH. Good news? With this batch, they are pretty much done. We have almonds, but those don't call my name. DH bought me some mac nuts. I know this is weird, but as long as that package remains sealed, I won't get into them. So, sealed those stay. And, they are in the back of my freezer. I don't notice them there.
I am like that with just about everything, if it isn't open I don't bother it. That is why I like to do recipes that require an entire package of things like that.
2:1 sounds good to me. Add a pat of herbed butter and we are good to go!
Ruth, you fell into the nuts?? *mental picture* LOL
Today is my high day, I am going to go high on the fat and see what happens.
Aim high! LOL Hey does MFP have a place to record BS?
yeah, I just answered in P's journal-there is a place up in the blue bar on your home page that says "check in" and once there you can add anything you want to track, I think the button for that may be at the bottom of the list. Called "track additional measurements" I think
got it thanks. I am going to monitor more measurements and BS and ketones
SW 2/26/13 =274.8
CW=268.0 down 2.2
Sleep= 6:55 w/ 90% efficiency
Urine Ketones= ever so slight change in color
Blood Ketones= no data yet
Calories = 1868
Net Carbs = 17g/4%
Steps = 10,800 ---Whoop, there it is!!!!!
Note: as per our discussion lately, my calories are HIGH, this would normally be what they are on a cheat day (well obviously the macros would not be as good). Anyway. The carbs stayed low. The protein falls right around the 70g mark. I pushed the fat up a bit. These macros, if I remember correctly, are similar to what Paula's were when she was losing some serious weight. I seem to remember that when she pushed her fat into the 80% range that she started dropping it.
I ran out of time yesterday, we went to a basketball game, so didn't get the beef broth in. Thus my sodium was likely low, but I felt good.
So I will be keeping my fat 80% and over, and go from there.
Not sure what today holds, DS sent me an email late last night to tell me his World Quest Bowl is today. Unless he gets a ride, that will eat up my afternoon (I am calling the insurance company on Monday-to see what his insurance will be if he gets his driver's license, these situations eat up some serious time and if he was driving, he would just take the car).
Anyway I am also running late this morning due to the time change, so I will do the treadmill after I drop him off at church and before I have to pick him up.
