[QUOTE=sbhikes;940708]It's the sugar grams that count.[/QUOTE]
OK, if we're just counting sugar grams, that can make a huge difference.
[QUOTE=sbhikes;940708]Look at all the vegetables you can eat on a low carb diet:

I ate lots of vegetables yesterday and my carbs were super low and I was stuffed to the gills.[/QUOTE]
Hmmm...how many calories are you consuming? If you were to eat nothing but broccoli (not that you would, but...), you could eat 310 calories before you reached 20g of sugar. And then you'd be done eating for the day.
[QUOTE=sbhikes;940708]Go read Paleobird's thread and look at the pictures of her super healthy meals. I guarantee her meals are light-years ahead of most folks and absolutely better than anybody doing the fruit smoothies, chicken and broccoli diet.[/QUOTE]
I definitely will, thanks.
[QUOTE=Paleobird;940852]By the Dr. Jan Kwasniweski formula I am 72 inches tall...[/QUOTE]
In another thread you said you were 5'10" (70 inches). Is 72 a typo, or is this height in shoes vs. barefoot height? I'm asking because I don't know which height you're supposed to use - barefoot is more accurate in a way, but that's not how everyone sees you. When someone asks how tall I am, do they mean barefoot, in Vibrams (which I wear most of the time), or in normal shoes?
I consume between 1500 and 2000 calories a day. I've tracked over the last week and my net carbs (sugars) have been as low as 3g and as high as around 30. The total carbs have been around 12 to around 70. But that's just one week of tracking. I track sporadically.
I just did the HSIS equation - I need 79 grms of protein, half that amount of carbs, and 160 grms of fat per day. I have had one meal today, have already had 77 grms of protein, 14.5grms of carbs, and 61grms of fat. Seems like I just need to consume 100 grms of pure fat tonight and a few carbs, doesn't sound that appealing. And that is after eating liver with butter, bacon fat to fry and a large fatty pork chop.
Any advice for the evening meal :-)

veggies with LOTS of butter? You just need to spread things out better over the course of the day instead of going so heavy on one meal. Unless you prefer to eat only one meal a day - and there is nothing wrong with that.
A smoothie with soaked nuts, a bit of berries, chocolate powder and coconut milk? Guacamole with crunchy cabbage?
I think it will be the veggies with lots of butter, might saute them in bacom fat - what a diet :-) Makes me chuckle to think of the CW gurus reading this!!! I have only had 1000 cals today and definitely need to make some up. thx for the input.
Smoothie sounds great, just don't have the ingredients
I haven't had the time to read through this entire thread and give it the attention it deserves - but at a quick glance I do have one question. My memory may be tricking me here, but haven't there been posts about VLC causing/being linked to adrenal fatigue? I'm just wondering about that. I used to do VLC and loved it but have since stopped. Your progress PB has really made me want to get back into it.
Could someone confirm if possible if that formula uses net or total carbs?
Rawr! Bullet proof coffee and .5 pound of steak iz breakfast!

Believe that and ... Oh, OK, I don't care enough.
And I forgot to say, yes, as has been said already your avatar is amazing! You are [I]the[/I] glamour girl of the Daily Apple boards.
Since you are keto-adapted, have you dabbled with the cold?
Mark has posted some interesting stuff on the cold, brown-fat and so on. (And Dr. Kruse, although he's out of favour.) It's been in my mind as we pass from August to September. I think intuitively low carb and the dark and the cold go together. What did you do in Jefferson's day? You put on a few more clothes and sat near the fire indoors, but basically you got cold and learned to ignore that.
