    Hi Pony,

    The MCT gives me explosive runs. It would be comical if it wasn't happening to me! As far as taking some oil with me, I could. But also, I am seriously on a diet 340 days a year. I get really tired of it. I walk 10-15 miles a day on vacation. I eat healthy and don't overindulge unless it seems worth it. My son and I share all meals. 1 appetizer, 1 salad, 1 entree. Or two appetizers, no entree. Rarely dessert and rarely if ever,wine. So do I get to go and enjoy and not micromanage? Dunno.

    I can't seem to get my set point under 144. This was my stepping in 1974 before slowly gaining 105 pounds. I work out, eat 1000-1200 calories including shots. Feel like this should be enough for a little freaking movement. And yes, it's BORING food.

    Ok Julia, lemme have it. Wha wha wha.

    Nope, I'm keeping my trap shut!

    Lesson learned!

    Anyway, you could always just try what the author of the diet did and drink
    some funky tasting sodas as your "oil".

    It's not like you're going to adhere to low carb on vacation. THE HORROR!

    I think you'll be very surprised when you get home from vacation.

    Not cuz you might drink weird sodas, but because of what you've already
    stated - you'll be walking four hundred miles a day and not eating a lot.

    The focus will be on having fun and not foooooooooood for sure.

    I would think that if I went on vacation with my husband, sure as shit I'd
    gain 500lbs because food and drink WOULD be the main focus, but if I was
    with my son, it would be an afterthought "oh wait, did we eat?"

    I went to Spain and England with my father when I was 26 and I was the same
    way. Hardly ate a thing. But I kept thinking about how nice it woulda been if
    my new boyfriend (now my husband) was there because it would have been
    a TON different.

    All those cute little restaurants and coffee places (spain, not England, I LOATHE
    England. And I'm English, so get off me) that I could have been canoodling with
    my husband.. but no, there with my dad.

    Yeah, not.so.hungry. zzZZzzZzzz

    Julia, sometimes I wish my son wasn't so freaking sane about food so I would have more leeway with food. It must be the guys that coached him when he was a professional soccer player and Muay Thai boxer that I can thank for that.

    Yes, if I was going to Europe with new guy, it would look much much different and I would fear the scale when I got home.

    As always, you're right on every count. Still enjoying your kid less week?

    HD, I did my first 45+ days with no nightshades, eggs, beef, oranges. I have to say I felt good. I still want to try eggplant. I have RA that's been in remission for a decade but feel aggravation from nightshades. I think cooked tomatoes aggravate my tummy. I used to eat jalapeņos but after W75 I think thevhotbstuff aggravates me too. Just call me Lee of the BORING foods!

    Helooooo...anyone home?

    Just scored a bunch of Hatch chilies at Whole foods. Roasting them on my grill. I also bought 3 lbs of ground grass fed beef on sale and some NOT on sale raw chedder cheese from grass fed beef. I am going to make up and freeze a bunch of burgers using the cheese and chilies. Instant meals. I sound food obsessed but Hatch chilies are to blame. SLD still going strong.

    Have a fabulous time! See you on your return. I hope everything oes as perfectly as you'd hope for.

    I leave Tuesday for Europe as well.

    I did of take shots the last three days. Up two pounds. I may change my mind and take coconut oil with me. It appears to do more good or me than I suspected.

    Oh my DD and I just have so much fun laughing at everything. This is a meaningful trip for me because I went to school in Harrogate 40 something years ago.
