    my plate up to the sink and saw a baggie (left by the kids) of Pirate's Booty (white cheddar
    cheese puffs), and even though I'd JUST freaking eaten (over 500 cals at that!), I salivated
    over that damn Pirate's Booty like I hadn't eaten in a WEEK.

    That's the stupid shit I'm talking about and trying NOT to eat (among other things) because I
    can just eaaaaat and eaaaaaat and eaaaaaat it, no matter WHAT I've eaten prior.

    So for now, it's oil and boring ass food, but nutritious food....

    Meh, I'm rambling again.

    Just wondering why you would have 'pirates booty' junk food avail for your kids? Is that something they brought home or did you purchase it for them? Just curious as I'm not familiar with the product but it sounds like man-made crap. Just wondering.

    I've gone through several posts and haven't found which oil is best? I only have unrefined coconut oil and evoo which according to the book are not good options.

    Also, any tips before I start in a couple days?

    I'm not even going to go there, so "keep wondering".

    Several on this thread are using coconut oil, often the organic, but refined, flavourless version. But the most common oil used is Extra Light Olive Oil, the flavourless version of olive oil. All of the major brands have a version of it. It will be light yellowish rather than deep green.

    Just be sure that whatever you use, you take it in a way that you don't taste the oil at all. Hold your breath, plug your nose, throw it back like a shot - whatever works for you.

    Down almost a pound today - probably water but I'm taking it.

    150.0 this morning, so down about 1.5 since last weekend. Oh, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me see the 140's! It's so important to me psychologically, that minor weight change, but major mindset change.
