    OK, back from the Dr. My med level is fine. That is excellent news.
    The nurse feels that I have anemia due to the circus coming to town. She recommended supplementing iron for the week before and the week of. This has happened in the past, but not as severe. Probably due to all the changes my body is going through.

    Wow, this is one long thread!

    I'll share my experience and toss in a question.

    MY EXPERIENCE:
    I wanted to reduce my protein b/c I felt like I was just relying on it too much. So, I started eating my eggs without the whites, and slathering organic butter on yolks. Also put butter and good walnut oil on everything. I lost about 3 lbs in just a few days (I'm 5'3" and 115 lbs, so I guess this works!).

    MY QUESTION:
    How can I get more fat calories without consuming dairy or coconut?

    I do eat cultured butter and do well on it. But, I sometimes feel lousy when I eat dairy. (I've done raw, fermented, etc.). I can eat some cheeses and feel ok, but I generally keep dairy to a minimum.
    Coconut doesn't agree with me either. I like it, but I get heartburn (never get that otherwise) and then taste this horrible taste all day. Even with manna.

    So, how can I get more fat?

    Should I just chug butter and good oils? Can I make meat-based fat dishes like short-ribs?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Chris, I'll want you to copy and paste that to the new thread as well.

    Geo, That is so awesome! Are you weighing tomorrow?

    Tomi, I am so glad you stuck it out through the stomach issues.

    Well, the scale can kiss my patootie. I don't know why people rely on the darn thing anyway. My thighs are thinner, my belly is smaller, my waist is smaller. My ass isn't though so the smaller waist REALLY makes me look bulbous.

    Things I learned.
    I need to start tracking.
    Butter in my tea and coffee is delicious but in addition to the other fats I was getting caused an upswing. See above.
    Having support from the people on this thead has been vital with me sticking to it.
    There are some really good recipes out there!
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Fatty cuts of meat, eat the fat! You could use ghee, make fat bombs, there is a LCHF recipe group, I think they are posted there), avocado, hope that helps!

    January's Lesson:

    Two weeks at 70% fat and my weight had no reaction at all.
    Three days at 80% fat and I had an instant reaction. (Hope it continues.)
