    If I give up butter and cream I don't think I could make 50% fat. Plus the enjoyment factor would be really low (which would also be the case if I have to give up stevia-which is the only AS I currently use)

    I never did the control for the BS, so I will do one tonight (I was trying not to waste a stick) and see if that makes a difference tomorrow morning. I still can't figure out how to use that darn lancet thingy, I just stab myself, so tiny it doesn't hurt at all and there is no residual pain, so I will just go with it.

    I need to get mine back up. The dog has a minor nail injury, so no walking for a few days.

    My entire NK history I did OD macros for the first 4 weeks and lost a large chunk of weight twice. The first two weeks were before xmas. I lost from 244 to 232. The I binged for a week over the holidays. In the first two weeks of January, I lost from 247-235. I raised my fats in the middle of January to 80% thinking it would help me stop bingeing. I lost 5 more lbs in those 2 weeks. Then I binged off and on in February bouncing between 227 and 235 at 80% fat. In March, I kept fat at 80% but lowered protein from 78-100 to 60-70.

    With the bingeing, it is hard to tell what works. I do feel a big difference in binge behavior since lowering protein. I need to figure out this fat % issue. I have been eating 85%fat since last Sunday, but I binged on Saturday so the results are skewed again. I just don't like how I feel on 85%

    One plus is that there is a general downward trend in weight.

    I eat all kinds of Dairy-butter, HWC, cheese

    I like 65-80%. Above 80%, I don't feel like I have "enough" (of course, I'm usually watching the calories at the same time, so then the protein is limited).

    Thanks for the link, RMS. I like reading about a female who has had success. And I love her charts!

    agreed.

    In order to get to JM's 85%, I have to eat 2000 calories. I am only able to do that by having 2 mega bullet proof coffees a day. It doesn't feel right. Eventually, I want to be eating REAL food. I'd rather eat fewer calories.
    When we first started this, I was using the optimal diet macros in out first post. I was eating a normal amount of protein and about 70-75% fat and it felt more balanced.

    Tomorrow is the end of the week. I may ratchet my fat back down to 70%ish. That way I can easily drop dairy as I have been wanting to do. And those damn artificial sweeteners which I have been using at an alarming rate. I know when I dropped dairy and AS once before, I had a big drop in weight.

    at the situation.
    me too! I so do not want to drop dairy either but to get into NK I might have to.

    Not quite sure why my FBS is not coming down? I am going to explore that link from DG and see what I can learn. I have not been able to reach 85% for the same reasons, I am simply not going to eat a tablespoon of coconut oil straight.

    I will plod along, tomorrow I go for a college visit so my timing will be off and we are going to eat lunch out.
    I dont want to either. Curious as to how to get high fat minus the dairy...

    I ordered more sticks and they sent me a free bottle of BS and 2 more ketone

    As to the pain, I feel that little prick. Grr.. the lancent works best for me on 5 and then make sure its straight up and down before clicking the trigger
