    Hey, go big or go home right. I felt like I really gave the lots of veggies route plenty of chances, time to do something I have never even come close to trying!

    Your goals are very similar to mine, my HSIS is 160, but I weighed 170 for my wedding and looked pretty great at that weight as well. I am certain I do not have as much muscle mass as you do though. However by the time I get there, I just might!

    I just ran across this article on Nutritional Ketosis (I am researching and finding that because of my health background...cancer, high BP, excess stored fat, etc...I really need to be doing this) and it gives some ideas for increasing fat intake in a healthful way...12 Healthy High-Fat Foods Perfect For Nutritional Ketosis

    Great Article! I was reading some of the comments on another article of Jimmy's about Low Carb Mistakes. This guy had a hard time getting into nutritional ketosis. He found out that he was having an insulin response to dairy. Something to consider anyway. I am cleaning up dairy to just ghee and heavy cream in the new year anyway

    Also both Jimmy Moore and Peter Attia take in fat in the form of taking tbsp of oil. Attia takes MCT oil, Moore takes Fish oil. I am going to add MCT to my program. It helps promote the formation of ketone bodies.

    I have MCT, I add it to DS's morning coffee, I could easily add a T to my morning shake! I also need to start back up with my tsp of fish oil. Especially since it looks like most days I will have to switch out my salmon for cheese at lunch depending on what is planned for dinner.

    I just read that article. Makes sense -- I'm giving it a try. I've been eating low carb - but according to that article I've been eating too much protein. So -- going to cut back on the protein, and pump up the fat intake. I'm not a lover of avocado though so will focus on other sources. BACON is a good place to start! I usually eat it everyday as it is - but maybe I will just add one or two more slices! I always ghee on hand, and lots of butter! I should get some cream cheese. oh........... cheese cake with stevia maybe??? crustless. I wonder if you can make ice cream with stevia? I have a killer ice cream recipe - heavy cream, half and half, whole eggs, vanilla and sugar. If I could sub stevia for sugar it would be totally primal and very high fat, low carb and low protein. I'm going to do a bit of research on that one! I mean - what could be better than losing weight while eating real home made ice cream!!!

    I am with you ladies. It has to be too much protein that is stalling my weight loss. I know I'll end up challenged with fat, but I am making the coconut oil chocolates and if it is too much processed stuff from the stevia and cocoa powder, then it will be my one vice.

    I am currently also allowing artificial sweeteners. Let me get into ketosis first, then I'll take on that challenge.

    Tomi, cheese cake sounds amazing.

    not sure the ice cream will work without the sugar, can't remember what it does but it has something to do with the structure, which is why sugar free ice cream has so much other stuff in it.

    I made a mousse for the boys the other day though that was just whipped heavy cream, add some stevia and nut butter and voila.

    Stevia is the only AS I use now, no plans to give it up. I may eventually get to where I don't need sweet, but for right now, well like you said, first things first.

    This is where I have a lot of problems with eating fat. I despise mayo with a passion(I've tried to make it myself and still can't get around to eat it) and can't seem to get myself locked into the idea of eating fat by itself. I've tried mixing chocolate of cocoa with CO and that causes the gag factor pretty badly for me. I can handle dairy on a very limited basis. Maybe once or twice a week at best. My only other idea is to eat bacon all day long. I can handle putting CO in coffee, that isn't so bad. I'm just not sure what to do in regards to getting in more fat. Plus, in regards to figuring out how much fat you should get, how do you figure out what weight you want to be at? Since I've never been thin, this is something that is difficult for me to figure out.

    well on the goal weight, I would just pick a number that seems reasonable to you. How tall are you and (if you don't mind telling) what do you weigh now). And what is your wrist measurement?

    To how much fat, once we figure out a goal weight, then we will plug you into the formula that Paula posted.

    Now how to get fat ideas...

    So the bulletproof coffee (or tea) is a great way to start. Or I do a morning shake that doesn't have dairy, I use coconut milk and almond milk (unsweetened of course), then there is avocado, olives (tampenade), pesto, macadamia nuts, and choosing higher fat versions of the meats and anything else that you eat, butter or ghee on veggies or steak. There are also a few ideas in that article I posted a few responses back on this thread. Actually that website has a bit of nice info for this purpose. I also like Dr. Attia's blog.
