    will do my user name there is same as here, if anyone wants to be frandz!

    Interesting on the body temp. I may have to get a thermometer and start monitoring, for interest sake.

    Does any one know - is it better to keep the ratio right & average out the cals over a few days or stick to the cals even if the fat number goes down.

    Just wondered as I have eaten a bit more carbs & protein today & to keep to 80% fat would take me 300 over on the cals which I can probably lose tomorrow (had the munchies tonight & ate off menu a bit)

    Considering a move to Sarasota next year. It is one of the most beautiful places I know and the ocean heals whatever ails me.

    In trying to think of ways to get more fat w/out protein: Has anyone tried adding butter or coconut oil to bone broth? I just bought the TJ's organic beef broth and that is my plan. Very much hoping it helps with the low carb flu as well because I am in the middle of a fibromyalgia flare up and starting a second job. Low carb flu might kill me

    I used to take my temp when DH and I were trying to have babies. The temp was instrumental in that it made it possible for me to know for sure that I was pregnant before a pregnancy test would register. I'd watch my temp, wait to see if it would change after a few days... if it didn't, I was pretty sure I was pregnant, but it always took like 12 days to show up on pregnancy tests (the digital ones, anyway - the line or no line tests are triggered on lower hormone amounts).

    I want to recommend to everyone the Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole recipe that Chris found. OM nom nom nom sooooo good. Even better the second day! I'll post it here but I think Chris also posted it in the recipe group for ease of finding later. You have got to try it!

    And while you're in the recipe group page, check out the Parmesan-Dijon pork chops... oh my word... delicious! Those are also very good as leftovers.

    Chris adds butter to her bouillon drinks. I bet you could add a tbsp to your broth without a problem. Make sure you add salt though to keep those electrolytes up while transitioning into the low carb lifestyle.

    On a keto board on facebook, everyone says the ratios are more important than the total calorie consumption.
