Hi Jacqui!

I had the same question. This thread might help:

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...fat-bombs.html

There's no one recipe. It just depends on your taste and creativity. I've never made them with CO, because I haven't bought any yet. I make mine w/ butter, cream cheese, Splenda, and whatever else I have handy such as peanut butter, lemon zest, orange extract, etc.

ETA: Here's a more helpful fat bomb thread:

Oh, no, it doesn't sound silly! That's one of the reasons why we are all here: To ask questions and to learn.

The point of fat bombs is to increase our fat intake. Some have success on 80/15/5 plans. I know personally, when I increase my daily fat to 75%+, I lose weight more quickly. For more info, check out the friendly, helpful folks at:

Jacqui, I would suggest that you read "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes. It is a really good read that will answer concerns. Any library should have it.

I think what helps me is breaking it down into mini-goals.

I am doing an experiment. I am eating a bigass fatty breakfast and want to see if i can make it to dinner with no hunger.

after a cup of coffee with a generous portion of HWC - melted butter in a pan (like 4 tbsp) sauteed in baby kale, about 2 oz steak, 2 strips of bacon, cracked in 4 egg yolks, a torn up slice of fatty havarti cheese, scrambled it all up and topped with a generous portion of sour cream. p.s. its really delicious. Chef myles strikes again

fat 113.8g (81%)
prot 48.7g (16%)
carbs 9.2 (3%) Although fit dat says my egg yolks and bacon have carbs, this may be wrong.
----------
1256 calories

I can't imagine that not tiding you over Chef lol.

Avoid browsing LC recipes. I found that on days when I did browse them I'd get to feeling hungry but when I stopped doing that my 1000 calorie day beginner would carry me to 4pm easily.

Goolash, try making coconut bark with your chocolate instead. Melt 1 piece of the 90% cacao lindt in the microwave, and mix with 1 TB of coconut oil, then spread it on parchment and put it in the freezer for 10 minutes (or until it's hard). You'll have all the flavor of the chocolate, but it doubles the amount you're putting your mouth - the flavor lasts longer, but you're getting more fat than carbs. You can also add a drop or two of sweetener, since the chocolate is so dark.

Hungry after dinner

Hi all,

I am having trouble getting into the swing of things with this plan (85 fat/15 protein/5 carb). Everything seems to go ok until dinner. I want to eat more meat than allowed at dinner, and then I find myself snacking on meat and cheese until bedtime. I think my problem on Atkins before was too much protein. I would keep my carbs under 20, but my protein was always really high (and probably my fat was too low). I'd love some advice from people who have a "meat tooth" instead of a "sweet tooth." Haha! Here is a typical menu:

B: 2 eggs cooked in 1 T bacon grease, 2 pieces bacon, 3 oz sausage
or almond muffin and fat bomb (recipes found in this thread)

L: 2 boiled eggs + mayo
or lettuce with leftover meat + mayo, guacamole or sour cream

D: 2 oz meat, lettuce, cheese, mayo

S: sausage, cheese, bacon, olives, pate, can oysters, etc. Multiple trips to fridge until bedtime.

Thanks!

NC, check out this thread if you haven't already:

The folks there are really helpful.

Side note: I've been lurking, but not posting here. I've been sick with the crud and not up to par on my nutrition intake.

Fat is satiating. Add more fat to your dinner. MORE mayo, sour cream...lots of oil on your salad...more fat!

" (85 fat/15 protein/5 carb)"
I think it is far more accurate to decide the actual grams of each macro nutrient rather than going by percentages. Usually the percentages will fall into range. This does mean weighing and measuring your food.

I think it is also important to give the body time where it is not digesting food and the best and easiest time is during sleep. This can be optimized by not eating in the evening and that way by the time bedtime arrives, all food has been dealt with and you can count on 8 hrs or so of body fat for fuel.

Have a more substantial dinner and don't snack after that. A cup of tea or chicken broth would likely help get you into the habit.

Eat only to hunger. The hard boiled egg test is quite useful in the beginning. If you want something to eat, then it would be a h.b. egg and if that doesn't sound good, it is because you are not hungry.

It took me quite some time to get use to the reduced protein and I messed up a # of times which had consequences (including 'hunger') before I got it right. It appears that this is pretty common. I guess you could say there is a rather big learning curse even for the most seasoned low carber!
