[QUOTE=adavison;1088360]I wasn't sure if ya'll knew about these, but wanted to post the link just in case.
I ate them the first four weeks of eating primal and lost about 8-9 pounds. I am still eating them on Primal/LCHF. First weigh in is tomorrow so we shall see. I just eat [U][/U][B]about[/B] 1 piece a day.:)[/QUOTE]
what the heck is Oligiofructose??
[QUOTE=adavison;1088341]No dairy for me..Causes way too many cravings and weight to bounce up. I use CO in my coffee insead of HWC. I make a cup of coffee, add 1 tablespoon refined CO, and whip it up in my Ninja. Delish. Tastes just like a yummy coffee from Starbucks. Very frothy and creamy. I like to fry my chicken thighs in bacon fat. You know, no good southern girl would EVER get rid of her bacon drippings. It's liquid GOLD! This would add fat into your diet as well.
Also, one other thing. For me..I do use 1 tablespoon of liquid creamer in my first cup of joe in the morning. Non-dariy and lactose free. I know..it has sugar...but I count the carbs and keep carbs in my range.(5%) The CO coffee is for my "to go" mug in the morning.[/QUOTE]
Great thx - another question (sorry been away to long) what is CO - coconut oil??
[QUOTE=geostump;1088348]I eat dairy all the time. It doesn't seem to bother me like it does for most other than it causes mucous but at this point, I deal with it ok. Grains and sugar seem to be my biggest triggers.[/QUOTE]

Yes, I use refined to omit the coconut taste.
[B]homeontherange[/B] Oligofructose is a natural sweetner derived from plant fibers.
Karin, I don't know but it promotes the "excretion of toxins" and that doesn't sound pleasant!
[QUOTE=athomeontherange;1088355]your progress is awesome!
As Jenn said its heavy whipping cream However if the HWC causes tummy trouble you might look at coconut milk and as was suggested possible coconut oil (although, you may have to get used to an oil slick). Pickles and green/kalamata olives kill sweet cravings for me!! Although to be honest, I have not had many sweet cravings. Oh, also, I bought some cocoa nibs. They are roasted cocoa beans in small pieces. They are not sweet but have a chocolate flavor (I grind them and use like coffee) but a little nib meets that craving too.
As for ketosis, it has taken a solid week to get into moderate ketosis. I am working for deep ketosis.[/QUOTE]
Think my biggest problem is my hormonal inbalance - haven't had TOM since March last year :-( Would jump for joy to get it again (stopped taking the PIL after the cyst was removed in March on oviary - as big as a tennis ball) mmmmmm
[QUOTE=demuralist;1088364]In the recipe group on the first page there is a discussion with 2 links to websites with suggestions for healthy fat ideas for NK. In the group there is also a recipe for a non-dairy primal cream that is fantastic.
Dr. Atkins book says it can take as long as 6 weeks of no cheating for some to get into ketosis.
I do dairy, HWC, cream cheese, gouda, so far it doesn't seem to trigger anything.[/QUOTE]
Still can't find the link.....been on the websit for 2 days.
Oligofructose supplies the body with friendly bacteria that aids digestion
Hmmm. Did not know this but could be one reason why I don't suffer from "bathroom issues." Yes, please..more chocolate.:)
[B]@Lizard[/B] CO is coconut oil.
[QUOTE=canio6;1087978]Well, if that is not a ringing endorsement of this WOE I don't know what is. Start printing up posters.[/QUOTE]
You guys are cracking me up.
