shrinkinglo, I also have about 100 pounds to lose, so I can empathize. I have also let go of the scale for now. I did do a set of preliminary measurements so that I can boast when I reach goal! I will do my next set the day before I go to my annual doctor's visit, which is March 4th.
GP, many restaurants have their menus online. Maybe you can find out what they have and pre-determine what you will eat to help you stay inline. Unless of course you are looking forward to straying. Hope you feel better soon, this years cold seem to be the lingering kind.
Don't think I've found ketosis yet. I know that sugar yesterday probably bounced me out of however close I was.
abc123, I tend to eat very little meat, and what meat I do eat is of a very fatty nature.
5:30am Bullet Proof Matcha=14gbutter, 30g HWC, 1tsp green tea (matcha) powder, a few drops of stevia, add about 12oz hot water (just off a boil) and whirl it with a stick blender
7:30am Breakfast Smoothie=8oz Coconut Milk (carton, unsweetened), 8oz Almond Milk (carton, unsweetened), 20g of whey (znatural, unflavored unsweetened), few drops stevia, a tablespoon of espresso granules
2:30pm 2 hard boiled eggs, small haas avocado, 1T homemade mayo, 1.5 oz gouda, chocolate mate with coconut milk (canned)
7:00pm 2C mixed greens, half bell pepper, 1/2C cucumber, 2T olive oil, 2T ACV, protein source (small chuck eye steak last night sauteed in butter, shrimp scampi the night before, chicken thigh with cream sauce the night before that)
In between I drink about 130oz of various fluids=teas and water and occasionally bouillon if I feel I need the salt.

I've been to this restaurant several times and much of the menu is primal-ish, fortunately! But the chef keeps sending all sorts of extra goodies to the table to impress Lady Friend. And every time I go, I trip and fall into potatoes. My true nemesis will be dessert. I can't say no to sopaipillas dipped in burnt orange caramel.
Oh, please don't let this cold linger! It's utter misery.
Been secretly doing EMF with Shangri-La since January 17th.
Starting Weight - 127.0
Was going to weigh today but, the Russian Circus (thanks Cori!) is
here for me as well, accompanied by lotsa bloat.
From January 17th until yesterday, macros looked like this, averaged:
Calories - 1683 per day
And that's all averaged. I had good days and bad days, but that's what it all averaged out
So my main goal is to lower calories (I, like many other people, when I imbibe in the Devil's
Swill, I eat stupid shit THAT night AND all day the next day, so alcohol is OUTTA HERE), and
attempt to get down to around 115 one of these days (and also fit my macros within the EMF
I'd forgotten what a crack bomb ketosis was once it finally kicked in. The other day around 3pm
something snapped and I became a cleaning machine until SEVEN THIRTY. WHACK!
I'm also going to be taking my temperature and when it goes down, I'm going to overeat a pile
of REAL FOOD carbs. I've been down the zero carb path before and I know that a few months in,
something goes crazy, so hopefully the carb up will reset that and I can keep on keeping on.
All right, carry on ladies, you all are doing GREAT!
(will prolly weigh monday)
Julie, with a 115lb goal, (51kg) that puts your EMF goals at about 25g Carb, 51g Protein, and 102g fat. Glad you decided to join us!

Also....BACON POINTS! Where can they be redeemed?!?
I'm experiencing a massive headache today. A lot of stress from last night. Not going to hash it out here, but if you want to know more, feel free to look in my journal. Anywho, I'm wanting a diet coke at lunch and am probably going to drink it.
[QUOTE=abc123;1080705]Interested to see a daily meal plan from some of you working with 70-80% daily fat.. Not sure how you accomplish this, while keeping protein low, without drinking oil or just spooning big scoops of butter in your mouth..[/QUOTE]
I'm curious about this as well. Ketosis has been my goal more or less with how I am eating, and I actually find it pretty simple to stay sub 20 carbs.
I don't think I'm eating a lot of (or even enough) fat though, and I don't really know how to increase that. :3 I don't have money to buy things like filet mignon, so what do you suggest the fats come from.
In before "avocado" because try and try and try, no luck - I freaking hate avocado. :P
I worked on upping my fat last month as well. Before I was doing more of a high protein moderate fat low carb. I still keep my protein a bit higher than what you all have been doing but I am weight training and believe that my body needs a bit more protein. I started Jan at 182 and ended it at 177. All in all I am happy with the results esp since I had a few glasses of red wine per week along the way.
