    Thanks Ayla!

    A question: I am having trouble getting my carbs low enough. Most carbs are coming from the milk in two lattes, and seasonal fruit. I can't pass up mangos! I don't eat rice or potatoes....I've been cooking for potato lovers too many years and the lure of the potato has lost it's gloss. Even sweet potatoes don't thrill me. So I guess what I'm going on about is there's no carby veggies to toss out. And I like a serving of fruit a day. That leaves the milk in the lattes...I already use HWC in the lattes, topped up with milk. What would be a good replacement for the milk?

    I didn't think there was a limit to how much hot roast pork crackling I could enjoy in one sitting. Apparently I was wrong. Eugh.

    Oh well, no problem keeping my fat percentage high at least ...

    I am finally noticing a reduction in appetite, and managing to eat a bit less daily. My main problem is figuring out how much to have in the evenings, and when, so that I don't go to bed hungry - there's no way I can go to sleep if my stomach is grumbling. Of course, if I actually went to bed ON TIME that wouldn't be a problem.

    My new resolution (witnessed by all of you, to keep me accountable - feel free to harass me) - NO MORE LATE NIGHTS WATCHING TV AND PLAYING ON THE COMPUTER UNTIL %#$@ KNOWS HOW LATE. In bed at 10.00 pm every night. Srsly. (Well, weeknights at least.)
    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

    Shelli, try a bulletproof coffee (butter and coconut oil blended with the coffee). Soooo good.

    Shelli, the fruit will get cha, especially mangoes which are unfortunately pretty high. Maybe you could eat a smaller bit of mango less often, say every other day?

    I also do a version of the bullet proof coffee, but mine is matcha, I use kerrygold butter and HWC a few drops of stevia the matcha powder and whip it with a stick blender.

    p.s. check the recipe team there is a recipe for a primal creamer that is fantastic and should be carb free or pretty darn close.

    I have to be the slowest loser on this thread. Three pounds gone but, hey, they are gone!! One of these days I'll have to break down and start tracking, I guess.

    I have been very good about not eating off plan and getting fats in. What I don't know is if it is too much or too little. I've successfully gone down to one cup of coffee a day and am working on reducing my wine consumption. I've gone from a big glass of wine every night to a smaller glass (quarter the size) every other night. If i can do those things successfully I can learn how to track!!!
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Geo,

    With a medium frame, her "ideal" weight is between 124 - 136.4 lbs. (56.4 - 62 kg). Using the top of the range (you could always modify later):

    Goal - 62 kg
    Protein (+/- 10%) = 55.8 g to 68.2 g
    Carbs (high) = 31.1 g
    Fat = 124 g
    Calorie ranges = 1,462.6 to 1,513.2
