    Well, this is interesting . . . .


    Aug 3, 5 pm 100/58, 54 [bp, heart rate] fairly typical numbers for me
    Sep 17, 5 pm 110/61, 69 had not been active previous to taking this reading

    As of September 17, I've been eating extra salt for maybe a week. I'm also about 4 pounds heavier. I look like the Pillsbury dough boy.

    Is this a good thing?

    ETA: you could prob down it to 2 egg yolks as you dont have the sugar so less to set?

    i have seen recipes for white chocolate cream brulee which has potential to add in stuff like creamed coconut ( coconut manna? ) or 100% choc to the coconut cream and egg yolk mix. i was even thinking maybe some ghee when i was out for a walk with the dog just now. the key with creme brulee is to chill it.

    i remembered too i used to make coconut custard for the kids way back. which was about a can of coconut cream, 6 whole eggs, vanilla or i'd do something like put some chai spices in. then honey or palm sugar to taste and bake. you could easily leave the sugar out there too as i have made cream brulee with whole eggs before and it worked too. this was nice hot or cold.

    Not good but transitory. You may have pushed the salt a bit too far. Back off a bit and keep drinking water and it should flush out.

    I have actually found that my BP has gone down since going VLC. From 120/80 on regular Primal to 90/60 on VLC.

    What exactly is coconut cream? Not coconut milk or coconut butter, right? Just sold as coconut cream?

    Coconut cream is sold separately, but you have to watch out since quite often it has sugar added (what doesn't, lol). I am wondering if one can just sub the thick portion of the coconut milk that separates in the fridge when chilled. I know I have can from time to time that completely segregates into thick sour-cream like mass and pure water.

    Anyways....

    Yeah, can we collectively get off Leida's case? I can't tell you the number of times I got called anorexic for wanting to get from a size 10 to a 6. My body, my goals. And, as you can see on my pics, I'm not skinny.
    Thank you What happens a lot is that the real not alarming numbers for females are not published. The nutritional science is conservative, and the averages quoted are based on old data, most of it harkening to the beginning of the century - mid century, when most people continuously moved around during the day, did a lot more manual tasks etc. The formulas also round up. When the recent correction such as Mifflin were done, by measuring BMRs experimentally, surprise-surprise - the BMRs are lower, by like 20%. People also tend to make mistakes in applying activity multipliers a great deal. In the end they arrive at the amount of calories that is far exceeding the need particularly for females who are either shorter or lighter weight.

    Yes, a small percentage of females under-eat on a regular basis. But, guess what, those are the ones that see basically immediate weight loss when they scale calories up. It is a very easy clause to check. In all other cases, we over-eat, because we are designed to over-eat rather than under-eat. It is a strong evolutionary bias. It is like with plants: most house plants die from over-watering & over-fertilizing rather than under-watering.

    Dangerously thin is not something to ignore, but it is being applied across the board too much. True anorexia is not that common, it is a complex condition, rather well defined and it is chronic.

    Yes you can use the thick portion from the canned coconut milk. Like real cream rises to the top of non-homogenized milk, coconut cream rises to the top of the coconut milk can.
