    It can be done without dairy (although I eat butter and ghee - if those don't work, you could easily use lard, tallow, coconut oil, etc.) or nuts, but it is more challenging, especially at higher calorie levels. I eat: (i) very fatty cuts of meat; (ii) add fats to my meats -- I pore the extra fat over my food so I eat all of the calories; and (iii) make a small treat using butter or ghee (I've done coconut oil, but I don't respond well to it), a tad of unsweetened cocoa powder, and stevia. If you can tolerate non-animal sources of fats, you can add avocado, olives, etc.

    Of course, this is not necessarily desirable for everyone

    hmmm.. minus the nuts it looks plausible.. it will take more conscious thought to get it all in I think.

    Well, here is the deal. I am not giving up dairy or AS, not right now. I will cut it way back, as far as I can and not feel deprived, but geez lets be reasonable here. My first and last teas of the day are going to be loaded up with HWC, butter, and stevia. I can switch my butter out for coconut oil or MCT in the broth, and just drink the rest of my tea without fat, but I like sweet and I honestly think that drinking it keeps me out of the sugar sweets in the house, so I am reticent to give it up.

    I agree... at this time I am more prone to give up HWC instead of AS. However, I think the AS will have to go at some point. I figure if your body does not recognize it as AS and thinks its still sugar, that might be a problem. Does this mean no sweet again??

    I am going to put off judgement on that but my current thinking is that I won't be able to do it, nor do I want to.

    I've been reading the diet doctors experiment with NK. He seems to see nuts & cream as cheats. Not sure why. I am going to give up the nuts (they have all been put at the back of the freezer) & I have just run out of cream. The cream cheese has also run out. If I am going to over eat I will also go for the Kerrygold butter which is salted. This has just gone in the freezer. So, going forward, the only dairy I shall be having for the next week will be grass fed, organic unsalted butter (I cannot this eat this on its own) & raw cheddar which I do not binge on anyway. Maybe that will get me out of my stall. At the very least it might stop my fat cravings.

    Thank you everyone for giving me the momentum to do this.

    Alright, I am going to start dropping Dairy and Artificial Sweeteners tomorrow, with the goal of being totally clean of them by 3/22.

    Rosedale's Protein guidelines
    Protein is broken down by digestion into amino acids, which provide the building blocks for structure and repair in the body. It can be used for energy if we are starving, as we often do on low calorie diets, but this process is very inefficient and generates toxic by-products.

    The amount of protein in one's diet is determined on an individual basis by factoring in weight, metabolism, activity level and gender. This is the only thing we ask you to count in our program. It is necessary to understand this is not a high protein diet, but actually an adequate protein, higher quality fat diet. Your body needs some protein to survive, but not so much that it views it as a liability and tries to burn it off as sugar. This is a very unhealthy way to live and can be easily avoided by keeping a within normal range of protein intake.

    On average, you want to have approximately one gram of protein for every kilogram of lean body mass (that is, the weight of your body minus the fat - we all have some fat). The easiest way to calculate your daily protein requirement is to take your ideal weight in kilograms (that is, what you would like to weigh if you could weigh anything) and have roughly one gram of protein per kilogram, minus 10%. For example, if you were a woman who is 5.4 ft (165 centimeters) tall, your ‘ideal’ weight would likely be in the neighborhood of 110 lbs (50 kilograms). Thus, your protein intake per day should be somewhere around the 50g - 10% = 45 grams of protein, split approximately evenly between meals. If you have an especially active lifestyle, you can add 5-10 grams or so. An egg is roughly 6-8g of protein and a piece of meat the size of a deck of cards is around 15. Remember this is 15 grams of protein; the meat will weigh much more as it also has water and fat, so we are not talking about the 'weight' of the meat, but the protein grams. This doesn’t have to be exact, but it’s a good ballpark figure to keep in mind when you’re eating. Males will have a little more, if you are pregnant you would add about 5 grams as well.


    I took a range between 150 lbs and 175 lbs (60-70g protein)
