Hi everyone! I've been keeping up with this thread for a little while and decided to try ketosis for a little bit to see what, if any, benefits there were (mostly in terms of body recomp and energy). I'm sorry if my question has already been addressed, but I didn't have the mental strength to read through this entire thread. But can you give me some suggestions for low-protein or protein-free fat sources, preferably non-meat, that will keep me full? It'd be great if I could hear some suggestions for snacks as well, since I'm a college student and don't have time to prepare and eat a huge breakfast / brunch that will keep me going until dinner. (Plus I'd get hungry even if I did). As much as I love eating coconut oil out of the jar, I find it doesn't keep me sated. Oils, etc. are feeling like ineffective calories because I'm still hungry afterward. Thanks!

Thanks, that clears things up a bit. I don't drink a lot of water so I don't run to the bathroom all the time. I could be creating my own problem.

There is a recipe group for LCHF on MDA , and in that group there is a discussion called "How to get more fat for NK" and there are 2 links in there with suggestions. Also many of us are members of MyFitnessPal and have friended each other, so we can check out each other's diaries for ideas and suggestions. The recipe group itself also has recipes for fat bombs and other things for getting fat.

I've been trying to get Ketostix......... but am finding they are pretty expensive! one store sells a pack of 100 for 14.99 - but I don't really think I need 100. I went to a small walmart and they didn't carry any. I looked on line and most of the 50 packs were about 8 or 9 dollars. I'm wondering if I'm in ketosis - but too cheap to get the test strips! I'm going to ask the guy in lab at work if he has any expired ones that I can have.

Ooooh girrrrl! I'd snatch up those 100 for 14.99!
And don't believe what they say about them "expiring".
I found some in my OUTSIDE shed (gets hotter than hell in there
and colder than a well digger's arse in winter) from 2001, tightly
closed, but had been opened before, and they were FINE. Jusssst
14.99 for 100 is GREAT.
I get mine at Target, 50 for 12.99 or something stupid like that.
So then I cut them lengthwise, which is fine, but I'd rather have
them at their original size thankyouverymuch.
So get 'em!

OH - well I guess that isn't such a bad price....... but still - my cheapness is saying, "do I need to spend $14.99 for something that I will pee on and throw away?" Maybe I'll splurg just once

^ this is why you need those ketostix.

Where do you recommend getting a glucose monitor and ketostix?
