Do you have a recipe for your soup?

Bulletproof coffee/tea/hot cocoa is especially dangerous in this respect because it's a very easy way to wolf down calories without knowing it.
It's okay to start with salted butter IF you clarify it and use the clarified stuff in the bulletproof tea. All the salt concentrates in the milky layer and gets thrown out.
5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained to 110 on sugar cheat. Reset with 85P / 90C / 90F. Currently weaning off fat to 85P / 90C / 60F.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
