    what do you define as a lot of water? the only morning i felt heaps better was when i had been out and drank prob a whole liter of water on my own. i've been trying to have a glass of water by my desk all day to make sure i keep drinking but it is hard. it's not a habit i have anymore.

    Happy days - it's the second day that I've had most of my pre-dinner intake from coconut oil in drinks. OMG - I finally had my first cup of stock. What a difference! I added CO to it, to keep the fat intake up, but as soon as I got a whiff of the salt I was smitten. My energy was getting lower, but this boosted me right back up. Phinney and Volek recommend a couple of cups a day of this stuff, and I'm totally on board with it!

    I'm using vegeta commercial stock - it does have some nasties in it, so I'll try making my own this weekend. I didn't credit the difference some serious salt intake would make, so I put off making it. Dumb mistake!! Phinney and Volek recommend 2 stock cubes a day dissolved in hot water, and I'm following their recommendations now.

    Yes, I added probably 2 teaspoons of coconut oil to it, and just kept stirring as I drank. I think butter would probably taste better, but I can't do dairy.

    Seaweed, your post reminded me of how I felt last week (zone of misery, indeed). I persisted until my energy and mood were so low I thought I was getting depressed again. Paying more attention to the science of what I want to do has pulled me out of it over the last 2 days. Hang in there!

    I just searched my kindle to find the specific recommendations from Phinney and Volek. It's

    "Practically speaking, the easiest way to get this sodium is to buy standard bouillon cubes and consume 2 per day. They are cheap, compact, last months without refrigeration, and hot water is easily found. A more traditional path is to make your own meat or vegetable broth containing 1 teaspoon of salt per quart."

    I'll be getting into that!

    i find it depends on what bones i make the broth with as to how palatable it seems without adding it to something. i love pork bones boiled up so i can drink pork broth. chicken, lamb, beef and fish i have to put in things like soups. i have been making japanese curry of recent which is just meat, broth, a few veges and spices with fat which has been a good way to get broth in without having to have soup. i wonder if you put the salt in once you've made the broth or while you are making it? i usually just make mine with bones, water and a splash of cider vingar.

    I've been making lots of custard (egg + enough cream/coconut milk to fill the cup, whisk together, add a little stevia, vanilla extract, etc., bake in a water bath until just set) and lots of coconut oil bark (melt coconut oil, mix in cocoa powder, stevia, vanilla extract, etc., put in mold in the freezer). Alternatively you can just drink cream and coconut milk, which I also do. I think you almost have to supplement additional fat to have enough calories to stay ketogenic without getting too much protein. Here is an example from Dr. Peter Attia:
    What I actually eat The Eating Academy | Peter Attia, M.D. The Eating Academy | Peter Attia, M.D.

    Keep in mind that Dr. Attia exercises a lot (like 1+ every day) so his calorie needs are pretty high. But it's still good to see an example of someone eating a highly ketogenic diet to know what to shoot for. Notice that he uses cream and butter pretty much every day.

    So, I did not do carb-up this weekend. I did not count macros, but I did not have any tubers or fruit. I probably was higher than 30 g, but anyway, I think I did pretty good. The result of not carbing up over the weekend was gaining... -1.6 lbs.

    I guess, something finally clicked off in the system, and I dropped 3 lbs from the last week.

    Now, the notes: I feel much better. Hunger is nowhere near the 'regular'. I had breakfast on Sunday (2 eggs, ~ 1/2 cup egg whites and touch of cheese) and went lifting for an hour, run my normal 20 min intervals after that, shopped came home and went to the amusement park with my folks totally forgetting post workout meal. We came home about 2 pm, and that's when I was eating a bit of pate while cooking meatzza. Then I had a slice of meatzza piled with onions, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes - and did not need dinner, just some chopped cabbage and a couple of bowl of coconut milk/creamed coconut & a few nuts just for funzies. Satiation is almost immediate on the low volumes of food. I chopped up a whole cantaloupe for my folks without experiencing adverse reaction, I drove in a car holding the core of my daughter's fresh unfinished apple that smelled like hells and did not feel like eating it. Well, it's good for now, let's hope it lasts.

    On the negative side, recover takes longer and I feel much more sore after the training. Steam room is closed for maintenance, so I do not know when I can check if the steam can help me recover.

    Cheers, keeping fingers crossed that I can have another good week of no damaging foods.
