Truly, if I hadn't been tracking, I wouldn't have expected yesterday to be a high calorie day, but I ended up at over 2200 calories. I might get down to 1500 some days, but 1200 is not happening. I know everyone is different, but I don't see how some of you are content on 1200-1400 calories. I guess if I skipped one meal I could get to that level, but I'm used to eating three meals even if one of those meals is just bulletproof coffee some days.
    Yes. Tracking can be very enlightening. You can't know where to adjust something if you don't know where things stand.

I have been trying to eat fat first so maybe that's why. The first meal of the day for the past few days has been some sort of hot beverage with fat (tea with cream) and bone broth. Then I have 2 other meals, lunch is somewhere around 1pm and dinner around 6pm. My weight hasn't budged at all.

    This week I've exercised somewhat less than usual as my son has been sick so we've been staying in more than usual. Normally we hike in the woods daily and sprint once a week. This week I mostly went out on short walks with my dogs and did abbreviated versions of my body weight exercises.
    Yes, stress/perhaps sleep deprivation of your son being sick and not getting out on top of that could factor in.

    A lot of people have had this experience when they listened to the higher carb advocates. For a young guy with single digit bodyfat who is weight lifting like a maniac, a higher amount of carbs is fine but that experience can't be generalized to everybody. I'm glad you figured out what works for you.

    For the people who have made Free the Animal Fat Bread, have you tried making it in any other form than a loaf? While I have never really liked bread in general, fat bread garlic knots sound very good. I'm just wondering if the bread would hold up to cooking in that kind of shape.

    I dunno about garlic knots. I think it might need some kind of baking device around it. The batter isn't glue-y enough to twist like that. I think it would do well as muffins. I plan to try that on my next batch.

    Well, if the muffins work, maybe I could just put butter and garlic on them. I'm having trouble meeting my fat needs without going overboard on protein, I may have to go with fat bread some days.

    Oh, I love the fat bread.

    I'm thinking it would work well as muffins... I may have to try that next. My first loaf is starting to get thin...

    Imagine the taste of ricotta but with a texture half way in between cream cheese and butter...... Salivating yet?

    I added some cinnamon and nutmeg to my current loaf and it is delicious. It does take a while to make it through a loaf. You just can't eat that much at once.
