Every ones posts keep me motivated so please keep up the conversations.
Have a great Sunday!!
Congrats, Brown! It really is beautifully simple. Most people seem to weigh every day but I only weigh once a month--afraid of being discouraged by numbers. You do what works for you. Great to have you here!

Made my pork rind/parm breaded pork chops or dinner..dunno not a huge fan. They just turned out greasy. I dipped them in egg whites (I read somewhere the whites will make the rinds stick better) drizzled some olive oil in the pan and T or two of butter. They browned really nicely just not crispy at all. Did I do something wrong?

I looked at coconut milk at the store today as a possible substitute for cream in my coffee. All three brands they carried had 3 carbs per 1/3 cup. Anyone know, is there a brand with fewer carbs?

Try Silk brand unsweetened Coconut Milk. It has just under 1 carb for an entire cup!!! Maybe you bought the sweetened milk???

Now, please don't get me wrong, I mean this in the most sincere way. Honestly.
No problem Bonny-Jean...it's a legitimate question. I personally will not eat artificial sweeteners, preservatives, and artificial colors. And honestly... It's every bit as easy to make it from scratch (as you can see from the steps I listed in my recipe)... It's pretty much the same process as the box stuff.
PLUS...beef gelatin provides a tremendous list of benefits to consider:

It contains 18 amino acids. Many of these amino acids are essential, meaning they can’t be produced by our bodies, and must be taken in as part of our diet.

It can help aid digestion and even heal digestive disorders.

Taking gelatin is a good way to get more protein in your diet. (Think picky eaters, pregnant women who need to boost protein intake, or those eating a mostly plant-based diet.) Adding gelatin to food is an excellent way to supplement protein without having to fill up on extra food. It should not, however, be your only source of protein since gelatin is not a complete protein. When taken with food, it helps your body better utilize other proteins and nutrients.

The use of gelatin improves hair quality, growth, and texture. Long term use can make hair shiny and strong.

Since our bodies make less collagen as we age, gelatin can improve skin health by providing more elasticity.

Daily consumption of gelatin has been shown to improve nail strength and rate of growth.

Supplementing with gelatin can be beneficial for overall joint and bone health, and has been shown to reduce joint pain related to arthritis.

Gelatin is a much better alternative to protein powders, which often contain artificial sweeteners and/or preservatives.

Gelatin has a protein sparing effect, helping to take the edge off hunger.

It can also promote a more restful night of sleep.

Sorry about the long explanation
I know some people think it's kooky....I have just chosen to eat as cleanly as possible....whenever possible.

I have them from time to time. This one is 72 friendly and easy......
Cappuccino Egg Cream
2 eggs

12 drops Stevita
2T HWC
Hand full of ice
(Sometimes I add 1T Sprouted Flax Powder)
Blend it until frothy !!
It keeps me satisfied until lunchtime.
When we were having that hot weather...I didn't feel like a hot breakfast on some days...and these were cool and satisfying! Great for on the go too!

Oh! I guess if you aren't much of a coffee drinker...you could sub unsweetened almond or coconut milk...perhaps the vanilla flavor.... Just an alternative...

I love Silk Original Unsweetened Coconut Milk! I will just drink a cup of it with some Walden Farms sugar-free chocolate syrup for a delicious choco-coconut flavored drink! It is found in the dairy section in a 1/2 gallon container, like the one milk comes in

Bonnie- I was thinking the same thing with the sf jello. I just prefer easy mix water and done.

I went to my camp out with my kids and girlfriend and her kids. We had red wine. That was bad for me. I got on the scale when I got home and I was up 3 pounds!! Not good. Lesson learned the hard way no more alcohol for me bit worth the move on the scale.

Thank you! I was looking on the shelf in the Asian food section, perplexed.

How is it in coffee, compared to cream? I can't wait to get some. What a value, carb-wise!

Lessons are really HARD to learn doing this WOE, there's not much wiggle room for mistakes... that's one of the hardest parts about this...

I agree with you about the boxed Jell-O mix -- it's just boil water and mix. The added benefits are lovely, BUT since we are on a meat WOE, we are getting our share and OTHER peeps share of protein so we don't have to worry about getting all the amino acids we need for good health.

Americans have never been lacking getting protein, funny how Big Food companies are fortifying foods that never had protein before with protein NOW... it's the new "buzz" word for health, like oats was years ago...

Amy, I milk my own almonds and it's .5 carbs and 5 kcals per 8 oz. It makes a lovely foo foo cup of coffee.

Store bought runs between 30-45 kcals and 1 carb per 8 oz depending on the "flavor" like Almond Vanilla to Almond/Coconut Blend.

Oh no!!! I did not!! I feel bad for recommending it!!
I thought there was 0 carbs because mine says Carbs=5 Fiber=5 (and that is for a 2Tbl serving....I only use 1Tbls)...
Oh....72 doesn't do "net carbs" right?? Old ways are hard to break sometimes.
I usually throw it in when I...um....uh....you know....need a little help.
But other than that.....I just make the basic recipe.
Thanks Jo!!

Yeah we don't do NET carbs. For us A '72 Lifers and those of us highly carb sensitive - a carb is a carb is a carb. So we count all carbs...

I have never used it in coffee because I prefer the rich thick flavor that only real cream can give me. I just like the Silk Coconut milk as a beverage.

Besides, coconut coffee sounds strange to me...

No, no, not that stuff. Walmart has it in the milk section by the soy and other funky milks. If you love almonds you might try that or for a lighter almond taste, Silk also has a Almond/Coconut Blend but I prefer the Unsweetened Coconut. Yum!!! I'm just not okay with nuts in my coffee, just beans! It's a little more expensive than regular milk but when you read the label you won't believe how there is literally no carbs in it, < carb per cup!! It's also low calorie, low fat and LOADED with vitties and minerals. I can't say enough of this stuff. As of yesterday, I have eliminated hwc from my woe completely!! I'm confident you will enjoy it!

Sadly, nothing really compares to cream!! What I did was initially mix the coconut milk with hwc, about 50/50 and each week or so added less and less hwc till I got used to it and as of yesterday no more hwc and it's okay. If we can convince ourselves to stay 100% on plan then we can learn to love this wonderful alternative as well, well me anyway!

A Little Advice:

Hey A '72 Hard Core Warriors, just a little tidbit of advice when it comes to adding foods not specifically stated on the A '72 Acceptable Foods List:

If it's from a vegetable base then it "probably" has carbs. Use those online carb/kcal websites to check the nutrition facts if your food does not have a nutrition facts label. Double and triple check, because ignorance is not bliss on this WOE and there is little wiggle room for mistakes as I mentioned earlier. Remember what Dr. A said in the A '72 book:

"Eat nothing that is not on the list and sometimes a single stick of chewing gum, or putting milk in your coffee could put you right back to level one by upsetting the new chemical balance in your body. Yes, even that much carbohydrate can turn off your fat mobilizing hormone."
