    Well it appears my AS is back. I woke up at 4:30 this morning starving. I hate that. I knew I had to eat or my night's sleep would be flippin' over. I dove into an avocado. I ate 1/2 and was ful. This morning, I made my breakfast but instead of 2 eggs and a mini sausage patty, I had one egg and the sausage. I usually have kale salad with it, but had to put the kale back. I had a mug of bone broth that has been simmering on my deck in my slow cooker since yesterday. Yum!!

    I think I am not going to have the red palm oil. I had ELOO instead last night and will have that until my MCT oil arrives.

    Hi Peeps!

    I ended up giving in to some of the brownies yesterday, but even
    so, since my calories were so low for the day, they didn't make much
    of a dent.

    Today, same as yesterday...

    Coffee two hours after I woke up, didn't finish it even this time.

    MCT oil an hour after that and here it is 2:35 and zero hunger.

    Planning on having bbq'd chicken for dinner since my 11yo is having
    twin boys over for a sleepover, so maybe the AS will hang out until
    then? Who knows, we'll see.

    I'm expecting LadyTime around the 21st, and usually with that, comes a
    day of "bottomless pitt eating", so we'll see what happens with that
    as well.

    Carry on!

    Julia

    Oh sweet syrupy lord, no more MCT oil. I spent the afternoon on the toilet again! I made sure to have lunch a full two hours after my last MCT shot, but even so, I ate food, it turned to water in my stomach, and I, ahem, expelled it. Painfully.

    I so wanted you to work, MCT, but you and I are not friends. Our brief love affair must come to an end.

    I should also mention that by today it seemed to be giving me REVERSE appetite suppression, if that's even a thing. I was starving aaaalllll day, way beyond normal bounds.

    Back to ELOO for this girl!

    Agh. Julia, I baked a sour cream pound cake yesterday for DH (I rarely bake anymore) and I gave in and had a small slice. The craving monster roared back, wanting a 2nd piece -- took all my strength to say NO, it was that GOOD.

    I'm doing the refined walnut and light olive oil today, not eaten much, not hungry. So glad they are both completely flavorless. That damned cake sits looking all lovely on the counter, but I know DH will rid me of it soon.

    Just picked up my CSA -- now have tons of veggies to deal with.

    Oh. I have great hopes for the MCT which has yet to arrive. Heatseeker - your experience sounds like mine with the EVCO. So I'm thinking I'll start with 1/2T of MCT oil (perhaps mixed with another to get a full dose). Maybe the body adjusts?

    You know..I had a day of the trots when I switched to liquid coconut oil for a couple of doses. I didn't blame it on the CO because I use it in so many dishes. I switched to ELOO with zero problems. The mtc oil should be here tomorrow or Monday. I may switch slowly over to the mtc.

    Oooh, Janie, I woulda been ALL OVER that pound cake!

    And I wouldn't have stopped either. So win for you!

    MCT oil gave me The Works two days in a row, but not today - YET.

    In half an hour I'm going to take another 15g and see what THAT does.

    But like I said, going to the bathroom a few or 7 times in a row doesn't
    bother me in the slightest, so there's that.. for me...

    Finally got hungry at 3:30 for "breakfast and lunch", so I ate. Still only
    635 cals so far.

    Good times.

    Sorry about the MCT oil ruining you, heatseeker. That bites for sure.

    Hey! I am a bit fascinated by this sld and have decided to give it a whirl. What would you recommend as the oil of choice for this? I was thinking CO, just the ease of transporting it, no spills. But more interested in efficacy.

    According to the book, different oils work differently on people. CO is a good choice. So is ELOO, refined walnut oil and MCT oil. If your oil has a flavor, just plug your nose until the taste fades.
