    Apparently my 14 yr old got choked up when He and Santa arrived at a door after walking down a long driveway and they could hear a little girl yelling "Mommy, Mommy Santa's Here!" He told his father that he wants to be the FH Santa some day. My husband said that they went through double the amount of candy canes than other years. It seems that many families made a point of being around today. Even some adults without kids were happy to see them. They were given some delicious homemade cookies, by one couple.

    Eat Moar Fat Report I have six clean EMF days in (Macros 70-75f /20-25p /5c)

    Wt. 232.2 (new recent low) -10.6 ***Note that I was very bloated from bingeing

    I lost 4 inches in various places, but gained an inch in my Bust SCORE! -3 in

    BF% 40% down to 39.2%

    BMI 34.4 down to 33.4

    I have been feeling great. I have not had carb flu at all. I attribute this to drinking a cup of my bone broth with dinner every night. Cravings have been light to nonexistent. Sleep is improving. I am working back up to my old workout schedule, but taking it slow. I have cut supplements down to a minimum (for me).

    Multivitamin
    B-complex
    D3
    Maca
    iodine & selenium
    calcium
    magnesium (N. calm)

    What a great start! Congratulations, Pebbles. I'm especially glad to hear about the lack of 'carb flu' and the minimal cravings.

    Yeah!!! I am scooting my way in the LCHF direction and I am amazed at how much of a difference 1 day makes. My macros are not as far in it as yours but I am getting there. Congrats.

    I just did a macro edit as I actually have a range for fat and protein. Fitday usually has me at 65% fat before I have my bone broth fat bomb.

    I can easily get to 60% fat, 30% protein, 10% carb, so I am inching my way there. The beauty of having a dinner salad is that I can vary the veggies and it looks and feels like a lot of food at a time of day when I am likely to be looking for more food.

    It has been in the back of my mind since I started SSoS that the protein seemed high, especially since I had tried higher protein with SPEED and not only was it hard to get that much protein, it didn't help. But I thought with the addition of all those veggies that would make the difference.

    I do think that Paleobird is right, that it is the combo of LCHF and calories that makes the difference. I don't think we can consciously do the calorie cut though because the body will adjust. Been there done that. So I am hoping this shift to higher fat and lower protein is the shift that will make my body use fat as its fuel source. Looks like it is working for you!

    For all of you that have been upping fat, what are you doing? I don't like extra fat in broth. I try to do bulletproof coffee or even put coconut oil in my coffee but it gets too rich for me and I feel sick after having it. Any ideas?

    Geo, I had to allow high fat dairy back into my diet.

    Try Cream cheese (strait up or on celery), pork rinds & sour cream, macadamia nuts, other high fat cheeses, avocado. I usually eat two servings of these/day. I add heavy cream to my coffee and cook my eggs in CO and drink my broth. That is all. I am keeping my calories between 1600-1900. You might have to make 3 high fat choices.

    Run the math.

    Paleobird had a formula in her journal for figuring the macros. I'll see if I can find it.
