    I'm usually freezing at work, but I've been much warmer the last few days during the potato hack - especially during/after eating my tater lunch. My hands feel especially warm.

    Hey potato people!

    So, I thought I'd contribute my progress thus far, since others have been so kind to do the same and motivate me to give this a go.

    Agree with traveler and nameless - Tazo Organic Chai is my fave :) Sometimes I throw a whole cinnamon stick in as well.

    I usually have a few glasses of dry red wine on the weekends, and sometimes vodka with sparkling mineral water/lime/strawberry slices (or strawberry kumbucha!). It does tend to make me retain a bit...

    Thanks, oceangrl! The AS suppression seems to be working great for you, I do wonder if it will increase for me since Marthat said it could take up to 2-4 weeks to develop full AS from the SLD. Great...

    Thanks, Stacy! It sounds like we're doing something pretty similar, I also have CO oil (virgin) in my morning coffee, but I also add butter and fresh grated nutmeg and cinnamon. I have my shot...

    I was wondering that too, and why all the "Ugghhhh"s, lol.

    Oceangirl, I agree, trying to swallow the solid CO is kinda nasty. I nuke mine for about 30s in the microwave if I can, then shoot it...

    My point is that the terms "low-carb" and "high-fat" are relative - and I don't believe the guidelines for Primal nor Paleo would differ *significantly enough* to state, in absolute terms, that one...

    False. Some people choose to eat high-fat, low carb under the umbrella of what is the Primal Blueprint. Some do the complete opposite - high-carb, low-fat. Most probably fall somewhere on the...

    I'm not trying to imply that "one size fits all". What I was trying to point out, maybe unsuccessfully, is that if the two posters in this thread who are eating that amount of protein/carbs are...

    That's still probably too much protein and carbs to get yourself into ketosis. Of course, it would depend on how much you weigh. I calculated my protein requirements based on the goal weight of 145,...

    To me, it looks like your fat is too low, and protein is too high. I aim for 80-85% fat, 15% protein, and <5% carbs. I'd say it took me a week or two to adapt, and then I felt good - not hungry all...
