    Primal Fuel
    My day today...
    Wake up...1tsp matcha powder, in 12oz water, 4T HnH (I shop at Trader Joes and their HWC is a very small container) whirled
    Breakfast smoothie...1C unsweetened almond milk, 1C unsweetened coconut milk (from carton not can), 1T @ cocoa, chia, flax, & kosher gelatin, 2 eggs, and 14g MCT
    Lunch....1 small avocado with 1T mayo and 1/4C toasted pecans, 1oz double cream gouda on the side, Double chocolate Mate with 1T HnH
    Dinner....We have company tonight...BAS with 3C mixed greens, cuke, red pepper, olive oil apple cider vinegar with pumpkin seeds, walnuts and blue cheese. Cream cheese tampenade mix on celery. I will not eat the dessert (she is bringing something-not even gonna look)

    My carbs go high, but right now I am doing net carbs so they end up coming in under my 36g limit. I haven't plugged in dinner yet, but I should come within the other limits. Also Dr. Attia talks about easing into this. Hoping that by easing into it I can avoid the carb flu.

    I read a lot on Dr. Attia's blog and my mind is kind of blown. I'm starting to make shopping lists for the changes come the first of the year. Need to also start plugging in macros on recipes to see what I can come up with and make this work for me.

    I went to my Dr. today for a follow up on Prozac. Told her I dropped it 3 months ago.lol They made me weigh. I should not have looked. 6 lbs diff from this morning. I am going to be up tomorrow anyway due to re addition of bouillon.

    I've been devouring Attia's blog too. I'm going to be as clean as possible through the holidays, but am really going to get into deep ketosis in the new year. I may even by a blood monitor for checking ketones.

    I'm going to use the bouillon as well. I plan on working on menus and such for this as well. Figure if were this slow during work, I could have his blog read by the end of the week or mid next week. I want to try his recipe for mushroom soup. Sounds amazing. I'm going to be curious to see how I do on dairy with this.

    Caution All of you know that about 3 weeks into my Primal journey, I had a near deadly incident with pulmonary emboli. Well I feel I would be remiss in not reporting the following research. Although the damage to my circulatory system was already done due to years of metabolic derangement, the likely trigger for the PE was jumping too quickly from super high carb to below 50g. I have read several studies on this issue. In some people with damaged circulatory systems this can happen. The recommendation is to move down the carb curve slowly. This time, I was able to jump in with both feet because I take blood thinners. So if you are super carby over the holidays, please take it slow. It may even help with Carb Flu.

    On that note, Dr. Attia recommends 2 grams (abt 2 tsp granulated) of full salt bouillon every day. A cube is 3.5 grams. Since that is what I have on hand, I plan to drink 1 cup with 1 cube daily. Maybe 2 on heavy exercise days. I know we have debated the value of using something with such crap ingredients. This is a personal choice. Dr Attia explains that for the first six weeks of his NK experiment, he was miserable and totally physically exhausted. He discovered that he was eating too much protein (150+grams) and not replacing salts flushed by his kidneys. The bouillon use does not have to be forever. Once you are fat adapted you can choose to drop it or use it only on days you need it.

    Interesting that adding salt to bone broth does not have a similar effect. I wonder what it is about the bouillon that's so effective.

    I am going to +1 the advice regarding the PE and low carb. I don't remember how long after I went low carb that I had the PE. It has always been in the back of my mind that there may have been a connection, and there was no other reason found for it. I have been fairly low carb since then and, as suggested, am moving in to VLC very slowly.

    It is very fun to have a bunch of us doing the same thing at the same time. I gotta catch up on Dr. Attia's blog.

    p.s. My PE showed up 7 months after I started Primal, and that was a few months after I went low carb. I don't know how long it takes for one of those bad boys to develope, but I don't think it unreasonable that there is a connection.

    I'm glad you mentioned this. I have read of similar occurrences on the board. I know that is only anecdotal, but life is anecdotal, after all.

    In my simplistic imagining of it, I think about the good primal living 'peeling away' some of the crud from inside our bodies, which is great, except then it is floating around, needing to be dealt with. My 'counter-imagining' is staying hydrated, so that everything can flow freely. Completely unscientific, and probably straight out wrong, but it is what has gotten stuck in my mind.

    Also, I add a prayer that I be protected from the side-effects of my past ignorance and present lapses.

    Going down the carb-curve slowly sounds good, if only I were so patient. Good wishes to everyone!

    It is neat that a few of you are doing this together. I am not going to be tracking my macros, but I am planning on a slow upping of my fat as I head toward the New Year, and my planned fast(for autophagy). If I do have any crud floating around, hopefully my body will just gobble it up!
