    Hey Marissa,
    One egg has about 7 grams of protein, which is about what 1 oz of meat has. So you can say that 3 to 4 eggs is a deck of cards.

    it does. I think it makes a major difference. I am becoming aware of EMF more and more and the benefits of earthing.

    I ordered a good quality fluoride water filter a few days ago too. I am consuming 1mg of fluoride poison per liter of water and need to clean that up.

    Just one thing at a time here...next step is to figure out where I can buy grass fed bones more economically for my bone broth. I can't in good conscience consume the fat from factory farmed animal bones so I skim it off in my broth but I want to feel good about it and grass fed is necessary for this.

    last night went to a small dinner party. They served all sorts of neolithic foods and I ate one and a quarter small burgers (one with butter on it), a salad helping, and one semi-cheat, which was a flan made from cream, cauliflower, a little parmesan cheese, and eggs. So very low carb but I tend to avoid dairy so it was a semi-cheat (very little cheese in it anyway.) Dessert was pie and ice cream which I didn't eat.

    So I felt that was pretty good. And it was easy. I wasn't going hungry or denying myself anything.

    If you can't find a local source, you could try uswellness.com. I was directed to this website by another poster, and they come highly recommended by many posters.

    yeah we have plenty of local sources for grassfed, but they are "local" as in 50 miles away or a farmer's market, no big deal.

    Last night we had a celebration dinner at a very expensive restaurant. I didn't cheat. I ate a bit more protein than I should have but nothing really bad. Probably 50g of protein if that, in the form of braised beef cheeks and lobster. Plenty of fat.

    I didn't eat bread, or dessert, and didn't feel particularly deprived. When we got home much later I had some butter tea and some almonds.

    I am going to try to avoid having too many nuts this week.

    It's funny you mention that, when I started more or less primal in October last year, I felt compelled to eat a lot of them. I was however losing a lot of weight fast. But these days, I ignore nuts entirely but not on purpose. I eat quite a lot of fatty fish (mackerel, herring and sardines) and meat + organs from ruminants (beef and lamb) and I suppose my ignoring the nuts started when I increased organ and fatty fish consumption. Don't really know ... I used to snack on nuts at work but the little bag of nuts has stayed untouched on my desk for ages now ... weird

    Well it's better not to. They are too heavy in omega 6, this is the only reason. Except walnuts and macadamia nuts. I suppose I can eat more walnuts but I don't like them as much as I like almonds and pistachios.

    Great! Good for you. Just keep at it, keep consuming a lot of fat, and it will continue getting better and better.

    I'm feeling good today. How about you?

    I'm feeling pretty good today as well. Been spending the morning getting the house picked up, doing some laundry and going to work out in the next hour or two. Hoping the workout will burn off the glycogen so that I can FINALLY get back into ketosis. It's weird, it's never taken me this long before.
