    Hi - I'm still struggling with keeping up with EMF. I think it will help me lose weight as it has stopped the big cravings and binges, but I am always hungry. I want to keep my calories to about 1600 to lose weight - yesterday I ate 2000 calories (134g fat, 88g protein, 76 g carbs). The extra carbs were from a couple of dates I ate just because I felt so hungry after dinner.

    So far today I've eaten eggs, pepperoni and BPC (54g fat, 24g protein, 4g carbs; 575 cals) and am still so hungry . . .

    I lapsed over the end of last week and weekend- no binges, but just lots of extra carbs and gained about 6 lb, but they seem to have come off quickly over the past few days of EMF.

    Any advice - should I intentionally increase the carbs a bit while I'm adjusting?

    nevermind... my pinterest is jacked up (at work - maybe a work thing, maybe a system error at pinterest, don't know). That book was actually posted by US Wellness Meats...

    I suppose I will just take some time to make some at home. I've only managed to get proper emulsification when adding the oil drop by drop. I do use a fair bit of mayo though, so I guess it would be time well invested.

    You could pay me to make it for you! lol

    Mark answered a Dear Mark question about this. I believe he said 1 week, if filtered to remove food bits that would cause it to go rancid sooner. I filter mine and then keep it in the fridge, where it effectively will never go bad - I say this b/c it's in the fridge away from light and below 40 degrees, it's in a sealed jar keeping out the air, and I filter it with cheese cloth or paper towels removing any food particles. Additionally, I cook my bacon on a griddle, so the drippings drain away into a container under the griddle removing it from the heat.

    Here is the article Mark posted. it's actually about oxidation, but I think it applies.

I could go back to drinking at the races if I wanted to... but quite frankly, it's too expensive.

    What kind of rum do you usually drink?

She started last week and has had fibro since she was a kid. She is so amazed at all the energy and how great she feels. I'm glad she has finally started this.
    BRAVO! I hope someday I can educate fibro sufferers of the curing effects of eating this way! I'm fibro free as long as I stay grain and sugar free!

    I would personally urge strongly NOT to increase your carbs as that would generally trigger hunger. My suggestion is to try to stick close to the percentages until you get over the hunger then slowly lower the calories. I have forgotten what your goal weight is? For 1680 calories you would get 140g of fat, 70g of protein and 35g of carbs. For your 2000 calorie day I think you would be better off pushing your calories from the carbs to the fats. So closer to 150g of fat, 88g of protein and 35g of carb. Then once you are comfy and have reached a level of appetite suppression you can lower the protein and then the fat. I would suggest nuts or even chocolate is a better choice than dates though. But for me the best thing for after dinner I am still hungry is a cup of tea (or decaf coffee) and bullet proof it to the extent that I have the macros left.
