    I've found that with EMF, appetizers are more fun for me. I can look at recipes and convert them for my usage. And its great taking conventional recipes and making them low carb. Love how this gets the creative juices flowing.

    yep, I agree, it also feels more conversational to stand around and do appetizers. and with the variety it is much easier to not draw attention to myself while we are all just nibbling.

    Do you use any spices when you make your 'Unstuffed' Cabbage?

    Yes, inquiring and hungry minds want to know

    Not in the big pot. But I often add things to the individual servings. My favorite is a mix i make with nutritional yeast, spike, and garlic powder. And sometimes i use tomatoes with seasonings. I do pretty heavily season the bone broth though.

    Okay, well I am making it tomorrow, and will probably throw some caraway into the mix, which is what I used to put into my cabbage rolls. Also, my tomatoes have basil, oregano, and garlic in them. We'll see how that turns out.

    OK, so I will call yesterday a practice run on the fat semi-fast. I did well all day and at the end of the day for some reason decided I wanted (deserved?) something sweet. So I mixed some cream cheese, almond butter, and creamed coconut with a few drops of stevia. A little fat bomb, well within the "rules" I had laid out for myself. EXCEPT...I wasn't actually hungry, and I didn't stop even when I knew that, and I ended up excessively full. I still stayed within my original goals, so not horrible, but still not right.

    So the goal for the next 3 days, is to hit a very high fat percentage (85%+), with whatever is left split up between the protein and the carbs. I am not going to aim for the 1,000 calories because well I think that is an arbitrary number and it feels too restrictive even with all that fat. So I will just say, as low as feels reasonable.

    I did not sleep well last night, but I expected that, it takes me a few days to get back into a rhythm after I have thrown it off. I expect tonight to be much better. So I was in bed for 8:13, slept 7:00, that is an 84% efficiency. The longest stretch was only 1:35. Oh well, I have much to keep me busy and out of the pantry today. I got a Vitamix to play with!

    So STATS:
    Calories 1,750 (1700)
    Carbs 35g (30g)
    Net Carbs 20g (20g)
    Fat 164 (140g)
    Protein 48g (75g)

    For today I have pre-tracked (again) and I am comfortable with what it came out to, so lets see how it goes.

    Chris? You are tweaking the plan even though you have not weighed in yet? Or are you just upping the fat for a time?

    Congrats on the vita mix.. have fun playing. I will be watching for what you do with it.

    Uncabbage rolls?? Did I miss something?

    pre-tracking is awesome!! I try and do that as much as possible to help me stay inline.

    unstuffed cabbage soup. It is basically my grandmother's stuffed cabbage, without the rice and without the stuffing, just as yummy, so much easier. It is in the recipe group.

    Nah, not a tweak so much as a mini-experiment for 3 days.

    pre-tracking is the only way I can do this and not get to dinner and have to eat a stick of butter

    Sabine, be sure to go to the recipe group and add any tweaks you make to the recipe.
