    started my own egg/fat fast today and i feel good! drank tea and water.

    ate 12 hb eggs, 2 T of kerrygold and 2 oz. cheddar cheese. tomorrow i will up the butter and not have cheese, i think.

    just "to see" i plugged this into cronometer: 1277 kcals, 86 gms of protein (plenty for me), 6 gms carbs and 102 gms of fat. not krazee low-cal, and great percents for keto.

    will go the rest of the week like this and may break on the weekend, but may not. we shall see.

    op, thanks for planting the seed.
    I'm glad she planted the seed too! And thanks for the breakdown on the f/p/c. I collect about a dozen and a half eggs a day from my chickens and now I can follow along with Egggirl's n=1 to see if I could give it a go. I'm thinking I would need the avocado and possibly the egg salad if I went more than 1 week.

On day 22 I am going to switch to primal, however it will be my first time trying primal...so I hope to educate myself now so I can do it the wisest way possible. I know primal is something that I could live with for life. I like all the foods and they are natural. I will just have to go easy on the fruit.
    So glad you will be joining us.

    If you don't mind over-sharing a little, how's your bathroom habits/digestion? Have you had any issues with that before and has it changed at all eating this way?

    Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).

    I'm an open book and don't mind sharing at all! Actually when I first talked about doing this the number one concern of my hubby was constipation and he believed I HAD to incorporate veggies too. I told him if I had an issues I would consider it. So far I haven't had any issues at all. My whole life I have been very regular. I go 1-2 times a day and on this plan I have been going once a day every morning. I have a feeling it is only once because I am eating less food than usual. I have not had any gas, bloating, constipation or diarrhea. (Sorry if that is TMI)

    Haha, not TMI to me! Thanks. I'm kind of curious how a kind of mono-diet would affect my constipation.

    Since I have gone to a mainly carnivorous plan (including lots of eggs) my digestive system has never been happier. I think I really used to overdo the portions of salad and veggies.

    You might find this post from Peter at the Hyperlipid site interesting about the proper use for vegetable matter.

    I don't think it would even need to be a mono diet. When I was doing the steak and eggs (and doesn't have to be steak, just meat in general) I found the same. Reintroducing veggies, especially leafy greens slowed everything down again. Whereas, for me, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, etc. Loosen it all up again ;-)
