    I'm going to try this once I have some money. It might even override my short term desire for a blood ketone monitor

    I cook and eat a duck once every couple of weeks or so... it renders plenty of fat extra for cooking.
    I LOVE duck fat.

    I haven't done a goose in a while... I's love to get my hands on one though.
    LOTSA lovely fat there!

    I get Great Lakes Kosher Beef Gelatin from the company. It is the only pasture raised source I have found. You do also get gelatin from the homemade bone broth. If you cook the bones long enough with a splash of ACV you can freeze it in cubes and use it for cooking. Way cheaper than the granules.

    I have been making chicken stock from the carcass since going primal. I cook it in a slow cooker for 24hrs. Each carcass makes approx 3.5 quarts of stock & I have an 1/8th a day. Not sure how much gelatine this would equal (I have noticed my nails growing stronger though) but I guess I need a lot more for it to make any difference to sagging skin.

    If I made it from beef bones any idea how much would be the same as taking 1 tbsp of granules?

    The only bulk gelatine I can find here in the UK is NOW FOOD beef & chicken but its expensive & I cant find any thing that tells me how many tbsp you get in a lb so its a bit difficult to work out how long 5lb would last.

    Still, will put it on my ever-growing list.

    PS what is ACV please? I keep seeing it mentioned but have no idea what it is.

    Good Morning NK Gang! You have all been busy on the recipe front. If only I liked to cook.

    FF Report

    Wt. 228.6 New Low! (By .2 lbs)
    BF% Down by .2 as well

    FBS 109 (Still too high)

    Ketostix - Trace

    Well, this FF was not wholly successful due to user error. Mon and Wed were good FF days, Tuesday I had a binge and last night I wasn't feeling well. My husband made a beautiful dinner and made me a plate, so I ended up eating way too much un weighed protein and about 1800 cals. (All Primal) I cry "Uncle".

    My body really craved protein during FF. I wonder if one could use a protein powder to hit min protein needs and then add fat to 90%. I may try that if I do it again.

    New Macros Based on Dr Ede's experiment using Dr. Seyfried's cancer work, I have worked out the following plan.

    1600 cals (10% below BMR)
    60g protein (Based on goal wt. in kg x .8)
    20g carb (gross)
    142g Fat (80%-because that is what my body likes.)

    Thanks for the info but I would have to take 48 to = 1 tablespoon so maybe not so cheap. Anyway, one thing I’ve learn with PB – it’s better to take the real thing rather than processed supplements

    (I’m not against supplements it just depends what for.

    NB I used to take green tea extract in supplement form because although I drink green tea I do not like it stewed for the recommended 3min (I prefer in & out if you know what I mean). Then I realised that the amount of anti oxidants I was actually getting from the supplement was actually less than my 5 cups of weak tea)

    Just a thought, I assume you are taking 1tblsp of dry granules then mixing it with water, right?

    Re protein – not eating a piece of meat is a small price to pay for being HSIS (if only……)
