    I don't think she has time to prepare 5 meals a day, good lord!

    Plus, you missed the entire point of my first post about her CW hang-up with the lipid hypothesis.

    In addition, "CW levels" puts "low fat diets" at 30% from fat or less. Which means you can basically put her in the "zone" with low-glycemic carbohydrates and moderate protein, and she should be able to get keto.

    I would also look at olive oil and coconut oil as the main sources of "added fat" -- since these are currently touted in CW as "healthy fats" -- so she'll feel comfortable with it.

    From there, I would focus on fish, seafood, and then chicken and lean beef.

    Roasting the whole chicken creates a healthier chicken overall (you can talk to her about the minerals and anti-biotic/microbial/viral attributes of cooking the chicken with skin and bone, but just not to eat the skin. She can even focus on only eating the white meat, then making broths with the remainder, and then straining it so that she's getting all of the nutrition (and protein mostly) without the fats in the bone broth. She can even scoop off the fat if she wants (we don't, but hey, whatever floats a boat).

    She'll do quite well with white fish -- doesn't even have to be the oily stuff -- if she is eating comfortably of her olive and coconut oils, really. And it should do the trick for her overall.

    Keep her in salads and fresh steamed veggies, and then fruit 1-2 pieces/servings a day if she'd like.

    It should work.
    She said that she's less concerned about the fat percentage in her diet than she is about the type of fats (low saturated fat levels for sure), and the amount of cholesterol she intakes. So that opens things up a LITTLE bit? Maybe?

    Conventinal wisdom.

    Which I see that you are still struggling with with your need to eat five to six meals a day.

    Fasting FTW.

    Why would you try to put together a keto diet using CW fat guidelines? Makes no sense. Sounds as though the very premise is half-assed.

    I don't want to be Debbie Downer, but for me to stay in ketosis there is absolutely. no. way. that I can include grains and sugars. For me to be in ketosis, I need less than 30 g carbs per day total. One serving of rice is about 45 grams. A slice of bread is somewhere between 25-30 grams.

    Plus, only consuming olive oil all day, every day would feel just awful after a while. Diversity is good.

    Maybe you need to outline what it takes to stay in ketosis. Then she can decide how she wants to proceed. I hear your frustration. My family will not even try. My mother's last word on the subject was 'your way of eating is too much trouble'. So you are heading in the right direction. Don't give up.
    You know all those things you have always wanted to do? You should go do them.

    Nah.. I was always aware "they" were out to get me.. even before I became Primal..... Now I can just run faster if they find me-Dino Hunter

    Cooking pasta actually takes MORE time than cooking up a perfect primal omelet or a steak, or some pork chops, or... Well, you get the point. Too much trouble indeed.
