    I use a 5 day average. Although you get a lag it tends to smooth things out a bit more & gives you a definable trend

    Karin - US Wellness has a 7 lb, $75 min. However, I have heard that if you call them, they will work with you to get a sample bar to try. If they would not, I usually order 1x/month (probably mid-April) and would be happy to get you a bar or two to sample.

    My average is definitely lower. I have suspected that I needed this, but was resistant. UD/DD seems a much easier way to achieve this. Now, I just need to get my protein inline (consistent on a daily basis)

    It is helping me, for sure. And, yes, by the next day, I don't really want it. I want my beef, etc.

If you tend to eat the same things it gets easier over time (Another option is to create a set of set meals so you don’t have to track everything, only the meal totals). Also I tend to portion things up before storing it so it all becomes less of an issue.
    MFP and my app are lifesavers. And, I do tend to eat the same things, unless I'm traveling for work, so it's not all that bad. I've been weighing (a bigger pain) because my eyes are still terrible judges of portion sizes. I'm either way over or way under (neither consistently).

    I can, but if I'm cold and/or tired (which is usually the case when I travel), then the liquid runs right through me. But, in these meetings (or especially if I'm testifying at a hearing), I don't get a lot of bathroom breaks

    Less is probably more re protein & NK. Eating slightly too much will nock you out of NK. If you are cycling in & out this may be contributing to the headaches. Low days & high days exacerbate the problem. You should be aiming to keep the protein & carb levels the same & seeing the fat% go up or down depending on whether it is UD or DD

    The other thing to remember with protein & NK is that when NK is firmly established, the optimal protein level will be reduced as the brain switches over to ketones so the protein feeding the brain will no longer be required.

    As for losing muscle mass. All the studies I have read so far suggest this isn’t the case on NK as muscle mass is only lost if the body is nutritionally starving & hence forced to cannibalise muscle in order to feed the brain. As the body optimises fat oxidisation from body fat, it can’t starve until body fat % gets into single figures [I](NB: some muscle mass loss is inevitable as fat cells contain mitochondria i.e. muscle mass which will be lost as the empty fat cells die off & are not regenerated)
    Started working on this today.

    Happens to me, too. Especially when I travel. Sometimes, I don't have the energy to try and figure it out! I'm still not sure that I'm not off. I can't often figure out how much meat they really gave me.

    Haircut

    For those of you who know where I am on Pinterest, can you go to my Hair/Makeup board and tell me which short haircut you like? I have one in mind (which I'll share later), but am interested in your thoughts. Thanks

    Do you have straight hair or wavy? How long is it now?

    Straight. Very fine. Very thin. Doesn't hold curl worth a darn. It's grown to right about my shoulders.

    ok then I like the one that is chin length (or slightly longer) and wispy, with the longer bangs. Short bangs are hard to pull off if you are over 20, and unless you have a long face (which is doesn't look like you do) the heavy straight bang will likely make your face look rounder. The wispy look goes well with fine straight hair and will look good with very little maintenance.

    I will contact them about the pemmican sample but if they can not send me one, I will send you some money to add a couple to your order.

    Holding steady, which I am happy with It was a good UD, well within my calorie and protein limits...although I should have skipped dinner. I wasn't really hungry and then I felt too full and bloated afterward. The point of this is to learn to listen to my body, right?

    Not sure what is on the food agenda for my DD -- maybe some steak that I have defrosting (although it should probably be my ground beef/heart/liver combo).

    I have a corned beef thawing in the fridge. I figure, tonight my bone broth should be done (I can have this on a DD, right?) and then pop the corned beef in the crock pot for an UD.

    holding steady is good!

    I LOVE bone broth on a DD. Very helpful...especially in those early days! I would thin it with water and drink several mugs. Plus, it's so good for you
