    You know, I was thinking about taking a break from the NK after a weekend of debauchery, but after coming back in here and seeing the posts, I've decided I'll get back to it. I can still enjoy strawberries and heavy cream on NK as long as I limit my strawberries to an appropriate portion.

    Thanks for unintentionally encouraging me to get back to it.

    good choice, Jenn

    Paula! good to see you are doing so well.

    My weekend was a mess foodwise. Cheesecake........... Rum............... Food was otherwise good and in good portions - but the cheesecake and rum totally derailed me.

    I binged a lot all weekend. Between my own job woes and now my husband's, I'm just barely making it through the day. I've decided I'm doing more of a low carb diet than NK. I'm increasing protein a bit, lowering fat a bit and keeping carbs the same. I'm hoping this works for me. I'm eating clean for 4 days a week and and eating like hell is freezing over for 3 just isn't cutting it.

    JUDDD is hard......... but I'm going to do it for a bit and see what happens. I saw someone was doing M-W-F down days, the other days normal. I'm gonna see if this will work for me. I did good over the weekend - if you ignore the cheesecake and rum

    I had lunch with a friend the other who works with doctor selling that HCG stuff. She was trying to "sell" me. I admit it was tempting. but not tempting enough. I've done the lose weight FAST crap - it doesn't stick, and you lose all muscle mass!

    Of course you can have berries. I just don't eat them right now to minimize sweet things due to the binge issue, but some day (cue violins) I will add them back in. I also plan to add HWC back in after 2 clean weeks without dairy. By then I should be able to tell if HWC is okay for me.

    Good luck to those of you still following this protocol with me.
    Friday was dead on MDA. I was hoping everyone was just taking a weekend break. :-)

    I too have found that it's easy to read the other MDA threads and start second guessing or wanting to tweak even more. I think I've also figured out what works for me for right now and it's awfully close to what you're doing (I'm doing HWC and some cream cheese though).

    On Saturday morning I jogged then had to go right to a photo session. I didn't end up eating until around 2:00 and decided to check my blood ketones. 2.6!! That's the highest they've ever been but I had been IF for about 19 or 20 hours unintentionally at that point. Then I ate protein, followed by protein, followed by more protein with little fat and ruined it. Still interesting information though. My focus this week will be on getting back to my solid protein numbers making sure I have enough fat. I also plan to try to figure out what causes me to have digestion issues (not enough fat I guess?). I did a cleanse about a week ago and when I stopped, everything stopped. :-(

    I also tend to gravitate to whatever everyone else is doing. Like right now........... still doing the EMF protocol - but I'm combining it with the ADF protocol. So I'm eating more fat but only on my UP days!

    I am trying to lose my last 20 pounds. have done primal/paleo fairly consistently over the last 2 years. Am stuck with weight loss and I saw this thread about ketogenic diet. Im confused about how many cals I should have (either 1200 or 1500). And protein for me sounds low. Also can someone tell me what N=1 and NK are?

    The two calorie amounts are probably a range, so low end 1200 and high end 1500. N=1 is a shortcut way of saying a personal experiment. I am cutting out caffeine this week as a personal experiment, so I might call that an N=1. NK stands for nutritional ketosis.
