    It is all cut up and packaged but I am getting the odd bits too.

I so far was unable to include beets, turnips or rutabagas. Volume seriously suffers once the higher carb vegetables show up. Yesterday, I drunk butter tea, had a handful of macadamia (1 oz), 2 eggs poached in broth, a tiny bit of salmon (4 oz), a green smoothie (< 2 cups = 2 cups spinach, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 baby cumber, a stalk of celery and 2 tbsp tomato paste) and bowl of fresh cabbage with two tiny dishes of coconut milk and crumbled cheddar. That's from 4 am till 9 pm. So, only 2x a day I actually experienced what I would call 'eating'. I looked at my nutritional profile, and it doesn't look horrid, but I am low on iron for the first time in forever. So, I am a bit less concerned with low volume of vegetables.
    Try making creamed vegetables like spinach and eat some liver pate. That is good fat plus sorting out your low iron and tasty greenery too.

    Yes. This is very individual.

    Yesterday was a crazy day at work, and I teach a 2 hour class from 1-3 in the afternoon, with a 45 min drive to get there. I had breakfast at 7 am (2 mini sliders, coffee with cream), but was not hungry (and running really late) at noon when I had to start driving. So, skipped lunch and plowed through class and post class review until 4:15. All of a sudden, I was REALLY hungry! Stopped at a little produce shop, and was looking around trying to figure what I could eat on the 45 min drive home. Limited options, until I walked by the dairy case: Good Heavens they had pastured cream! I bought an 8 oz container, and proceeded to drink it teenager style straight out of the carton. I must confess I made revelled in the luxury/forbiddeness of it!!

    Yes, it brought me to the max of fat grams for the day, but I ate a small dinner, and my ratios ended up at 80/15/4 for the day. I also slept 9 hours straight through last night. I can't remember the last time I did that.
    Isn't it fun? Sleep is one of the biggest benefits of this.

    I believe that there are benefits to ketosis. And benefits to fasting. Are you saying that ALL of the benefits of fasting can be attributed to ketosis? Can you point me to some links showing me that?

    Work's been busy this past week, haven't checked in with all the threads very much in the evenings, but I have been working on a recipe submission for the contest.

    I feel like a putz, but I made a video and just posted it on youtube. ha! And *ducking in embarrassment, still have quite a bit to lose, and I was tired.... and oh, I don't know.*

    If you want to check it out... here it is. I made my version of Ketogenic Chocolate Raspberry Coconut Pudding. It's like a bulletproof coffee, but without the coffee. :P

    That was only in reference to the benefits for seizure control. There are many benefits of fasting that go beyond ketosis including autophagy and mitochondrial growth. Picator had a thread about fasting recently that gathered a bunch of interesting research.

    I loved your video. It was fun and educational and the pudding looked pretty tasty, too. You have such beautiful skin, too. You are definitely a testimonial to the healthiness of this way of living. Don't think otherwise!

    Lissee, Your recipe looks delicious! It may even be something I could make using a microwave; I currently do not have access to a real kitchen.

    Had some blood/urine work done last week---it showed ketones in my pee---I couldnt have been more excited! I'm glad I prepped my doc ahead of time so he wasnt concerned with diabetes or other issues! I tested a level of 40 which sounds moderate. I've definitely been doing awesome with lack of cravings! I'll also have to tell Betorq that I got some emu oil and am using it tonight on my constantly itchy legs---excited to try something new!

    Wonderful news about your test results!!! Would you report back on the Emu oil so those of us with dry skin can benefit...Please? I'm using Shea butter (per Paleobird) and it's wonderful.
