If I go below 50g for more than a day or so I started feeling flu-ish, everyone's threshold is different.

    I scored some truly magical mushrooms at the farmers market this morning. Not that kind. Regular old wild mushrooms. Sauteed up a big handful of lobster mushrooms and then dropped an egg over the top and cooked it sunny side up. Put new life in me!

    I have It Starts With Food, but all of these books I have are on my iPad purchased through iTunes or Kindle for iPad. You are welcome to it, but is it possible to give somebody an e-book? If so, let me know how!

    I am not so technologically advanced...

    Thanks, I'm done with it - I didn't care for it too much. Actually I think you can loan Kindle books now, but I'm not sure how you actually do it. I think you can loan one a month or something. My sisters do that pretty often, but I read different books than they do. They sure aren't reading paleo diet books - wish they were...

    Just got some great news - because of my success with the patient last night the hospital is going to purchase another new vent of the same type! I am so happy! It has some very cool new features that make it really good for certain patients.

    I'll look into it (the loaning thing) but I meant the other book "Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living." I have it and the sequel "Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance." They're over my head. When I have to Google every word in a sentence...

    Course, with your Medical Knowlege it might be interesting. The important bit (that I was able to glean) was that protein should be moderate (20% of calories), very low Carb (10%) and the remainder in Fat (70%). The rest of the book was just way more words to say that. So, I got my money's worth.

    Congrats on the success with the Ventilator!

    I would like to have a look at it, but I don't know how to do it. I love the science bits. And I am glad to know that I am on track with it - those are my macros! In my limited knowledge, having just started reading books and listening to internet lectures about this stuff, protein tends to remain stable whether one is following a low-carb or a high-carb diet. Fat and carbs are the wild cards. Apparently it is also difficult to remain on a high protein diet for any length of time without making a concerted effort to do so, as bodybuilders often do. (I learned that from a vegan hippie scientist from Berkeley. He seemed a nice enough guy, but frankly looked and sounded pretty effeminate and had that wan look. That's what 25 years of veganism does for you.)

    Enjoying a night off and some really good food. Had a large turkey-blue cheese-avocado-onion salad. Then for dinner flatiron steak and sweet potato fritters with maple syrup(!) I invested in some coconut flour, pricey stuff that is! Mixed the sweet potato with egg, coconut flour, curry powder, and fried it in ghee. Then poured our excellent Maine maple syrup over it. And now I am enjoying a glass of really good merlot. I decided to treat myself to break my teetotal. Maybe if I buy more expensive wine I won't drink so much of it. I'm probably way over on carbs today!

    This morning the scale read 140! So close, so close. And how ironic that I have got the scale to move by pulling back to my high-fat primal roots!

    Siobhan, your food today sounds so yummy! That salad has me drooling! I am not a sweet potato fan at all though - never have been. It is a chore to eat them - too sweet for me. But I did buy some butternut squashes today that I am looking forward to eating - just love it mashed, with loads of butter and salt and pepper!! Or stuffed with ground meat.... So glad that you had a good experience with the new ventilator. When I worked in ICU in South Africa we were also the RT's and it was hard trying to keep up with the in's and out's of the ventilators and also had some doctors who were clueless and I hated working with them especially! So hard for the patients when the doc doesn't know what they are doing and the patient is fighting the machine and miserable.... glad there are people like you to take care of that here
