    When I was fiddling with MFP I somehow set my carbs at 15. ?????? One small apple used it all up. I have set my carbs higher now just so I can eat!

    Panda, my suggestion is that you should try either the cream cheese clouds or Dr. Attia's ice cream from our recipe group. Also, I saw somewhere (it may have been here?) where the person sauteed the stuff she wanted on her pizza (mushrooms, onions, peppers) threw in some sausage. then put some warm red sauce on her plate, put the sauteed stuff on top, sprinkled it with cheese and put it under the broiler for a minute to melt the cheese. So it was essentially a crust less pizza, same flavors different form.

    Most times I think we crave something because we are missing a nutrient or something, but then there are times we crave something just because we can't have it.

    I pretty much ignore the numbers that MFP puts out there, because it increases the numbers when I move a bit (my fitbit is synced to MFP). So I just memorized my goals and get on with it.

    Honey will definitely crank up your carbs quickly, really it isn't much different than eating sugar as far as how the body uses it. You could substitute any non-caloric sweetener of your choice in the clouds, or bite the bullet and cut the carbs from somewhere else. For me I would rather have a couple of cups of veggies for the carbs than honey or sugar. I use stevia mostly and sometimes the DaVinci SF flavored syrups.

    Hey gang, posting from my phone. Computer has a virus.
    The name of this thread cannot be changed. I plan to start a new thread on February 1 st called "Eat more fat. The challenge continues" It will include a link to this thread and a recap of the important points. I think we should all make our final reports in this thread on Feb 1 st. Then move the party to the new thread

    You can do honey - but only a little. A couple TBS, maybe 3. You'll have to count in the carbs and calories for the honey. I use Stevia - but it also has a slight bitter after taste. I can live with it. I just made a new batch - I added 1/4 cup dark cocoa powder, 3-4 TB honey and 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes. YUMMY. I make mine small - 36 little dollups out of a batch. Yeilds EACH: 65 calories, 3 carbs, 6 fat, .7 protein. Works for me!

    I am going to carry on, but don't think I can keep tracking and stressing about the numbers. I let them get to me too much I think. Ill still follow along and post if that is OK

    We all have to find what makes us comfortable, Ayla. If you can do the HFLC thing without tracking then go for it! Nothing says you have to make yourself nuts with the numbers!
