    Yeah - I love butter and use coconut oil but it seems more important to me to eat stuff with some substance, for example I'd rather eat a handful of nuts than douse my salad with extra olive oil...does that make sense?

    I understand how you feel, but there is way less bad stuff in pure fat than almonds.

    Interesting - I never looked at it from that angle.

    How do you guys keep track of how much protein/fat/carbs you're eating? I realize eating all veggies you can easily stay under 100g carbs, how do you know you've had enough fat and/or protein?

    Does coconut have carbs?

    HA! Thanks Slim

    I'm debating if I should switch to an IF approach so I could truly devour monsterous meals or stick to what I've been trying to do. Sometimes I need a change to shake things up.

    I personally don't track or restrict macros, but after a while you have a sense for where you are at a given time.

    Almonds have high omega 6 oils which are inflammatory - better to ditch them for some real good primal fat, like coconut oil.
