Yea, about two weeks ago - my hubby told me I was super stinky during a point where I think I was not eating enough fiber.... I apparently was going into heavy ketosis... but didn't have to strips to check.
it feels like a bit of a balancing act right now... but you're right - I have not been journaling my food.. my bad!
Ya'll are terrific - and it's been super wonderful to get this kind of support!!!
I want to thank everyone - I just needed this kind of encouragement at this moment.
Makes me want to go find some bacon!!! Hahahah...
Fiber is another one of those myths. It's not necessary. You'll get enough from whatever vegetables you eat. As for my list of foods to eat, be advised you still have to practice portion control. You don't need to stuff yourself. You might be used to stuffing yourself if you were a) a wheat addict (huge piles of pasta anybody??) or b) a veggie addict (family-sized salads??) Just eat sensible portions and see if that doesn't calm your hunger down enough that you can just simply get on with your life. Be prepared for a period of adjustment. You'll probably feel a little weak and tired for a while and you'll probably be missing all that fiber. If the fiber is an issue, just eat eat more veggies or try probiotics. A week of probiotic capsules helped get things back in order for me.

Sometimes I think that considering we've all survived (though many of us became ill or fat) the crap that has been sold as food for the last 30 years, we could survive on almost anything that was grown or bred in a wholesome manner.
If you ever have time or inclination, there are two videos at youtube that will turn you off to fast food forever:
The Men Who Made Us Fat
The Skinny on Obesity
Both are multi episodes. The first is more anecdotal, though factual and is a bit easier to watch. The second is a little dryer and you might have to get past the teenytiny bit of pomposity of the narrator.
