    I've been drinking a cup of bone broth in the morning with half a Knorr bouillon at breakfast and it really does help keep me feeling better. I've also found something that I love. In my coffee, I have a mix of heavy cream (if any of you are in Central or southern Ohio, you need to try the cream from Snowville Creamery, it's amazing!) and So Delicious Chocolate Mint coconut milk. This is my new crack. Seriously that good.

    I just can't get into exercising at all period. It's way too cold to get up in the morning to walk and by the time I get off work, I don't have the time. I don't have access to a gym so this makes it even more difficult for me. My DVR is dead so I'm trying to figure out what to do for a workout.

    Oh and April last year, I stopped eating primal, and stopped CrossFit due to injury, and started eating SAD again. I gained about 20 kg during this time as well, and started getting a lot more aches and pains, then started getting pains which turned out to be gallstones, and the Dr wanted me to see a surgeon. Instead i did a gallbladder flush, yes it made me sick for 2 days, with both ends going. But no more pain after this. I have not yet had another us to confirm stones are gone, but I believe they are. After this went back to primal, but really focussed this week on eating moar fat. I have around 100 lbs to lose, and this is the last year I will be fat!

    I think my starting weight is around 240 lbs but will know more once I buy new scales today.
    At this stage aiming for 140 lbs but will re-evaluate later.

    Ohh.... also I made bone broth... mix of bones that I keep from when I cook. Simmered for 24 hours.

    Geo- I may have to try the SoDelicious ChocMint stuff.
    I haven't had any milk or milk stuff in ages because I'm lactose intolerant and store bought milk kills me.
    I had to cancel my raw milk (which I can drink fine) order a few months before Christmas because of a sick/dying family member and traveling a lot, but while I'm strictly trying for ketosis I don't think I want to start back on too much milk.
    I know the SoDelicious isn't very "primal" but for a little bit of flavor in my coffee.... meh.
    Plus it seems to be a special 'holiday flavor'... so it'll be a short term thing.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Cori, love the Nora G quote.

    Ayla, welcome. I know what you mean, any deviation from primal and I blow up.

    Hi, all! I was just going to follow this thread but may as well join since I'm eating low carb highER fat - and so happy to be back to again! I feel my best in ketosis but after doing so for just under two years had VERY RELUCTANTLY detoured for some time while trying to fix what turned out to be a rapidly worsening thyroid issue. Higher carbs (as in, 50-100g/day) felt good for a while, but old gut issues began to come back with each carby food I added back in. Now that I'm finally treating my thyroid, which I firmly believe also contributed to my crappy digestion (no pun intended), I'm giving the LC/VLC life another go. Going higher fat this time and dialing back on what was far too much protein and I already feel great after starting on Christmas day. My gut is already thanking me big time, as are the rest of my body and my less foggy brain.

    Looking forward to following everyone's journeys - good luck to all of you! I've already checked out the recipe group and will join that, too - I think I may even have a recipe that could help jenn26.2 with her avocado aversion. It's worth a shot!

    Happy New Year!

    My weight is still here lol. I've tried Simplefit but I don't have a pull up bar and none of the parks around here have any bars at a level as to which I can attempt an Australian style pull up. When I woke up this morning, it was 15 degrees F out and yeah, with my asthma I'm afraid of going into an immediate asthma attack if I try to walk. Plus, walking outside is dangerous just due to the snow and barely anyone cleans off their sidewalks around where I live. I'm just at a loss for what to do now.
