as far as I know we DO actively discourage lurking!


Another trick I use to get in extra fat, is an oz or two of HWC, with a drop or two of sweetzfree and about 1/4 tsp vanilla....it tastes like little sips of vanilla icecream.

Sorry, this just made me laugh!

I take the egg white in an empty pie pan. Then I drag the piece of fish through it and coat both sides with the eggwhite liquid. Then I have almond/coconut flour/salt/spices/whatever on a plate and I just sort of "drop it" in that and flip it over so it sticks to both sides....then I put the coated fish on the pan that usually has lots and lots of butter melted on it! Sometimes I melt butter off to the side and put in a tbsp or so of sliced almonds and just let them "simmer" while the fish is cooking....and then pour that over the top. This is my favorite way to make "sole almondine". I love that light white fish, petrale or dover sole. (I don't eat farmed fish and tilapia is usually farmed.)

Did that describe it a bit better. I have been known to buy a small carton of "egg whites" on sale if I don't want to crack an egg to get to the white. You can always use the yolk to add more fat/flavor to home made mayo.

That is so smart. I'll have to try that, cause my coating always floats away in the oil.

Prettymuch anything sauteed in bacon grease is delicious. Hmm, Cauliflower? Yes, Fish? Yes. Spinach? Yes. Chicken? yes. Steak? yes. Cabbage? Yes. Cheese sticks? yes.

I need to go thaw some bacon.!

I was tinkering around on my ****** looking at my weight graph since starting NK back on the 10th of September. I'd been stalled at 205 since around February of 2012.

Start weight on this 4 week graph is 203.6 and the end weight is today's 192.8.

Log your stuff. Pay attention to your grams. Pay attention to your fat macro percentages. Avoid PUFAs. If you need help please ask. There are two threads to get help. This one and the other NK thread. Everyone in that thread is very helpful too.

Going out to eat, I know how to order low carb but what's good to order 80/15/5?I'm thinking, instead of my usual steak,sweet pot and salad, of bacon cheese hamburger but what sides?

Nothing wrong with the steak, sweet potato and salad. Eat up! Don't worry about being high on protein on one day.

For the bunless burger, will they do sweet potato fries? Dill pickles are good. Or a salad with everything.

Yum.

If you go to LongHorn's website, they have a tab that will take you to the nutritional information. I think Sweet potatoes are high carb.

Crab legs sound awesome, but so does steak and burger and salad and veggies and, and......

I would take some butter and ask cause I'm like that! LOL . Last steak place I went they said the real butter was cut with margerine. I think I let the disgust on my face show because the waiter looked at me funny.

Been out running errands all afternoon, now need to eat and then have a party to go to tonight, so will have to reread all these posts and make notes/comments, etc. tomorrow or later tonight, depends how tired I am.

I haven't listened to that podcast Red, but certainly will. I have been religiously taking my fish oil daily and not taking the lipitor. Wonder how soon it will show up on a blood test, so that I can show it to the Dr.?

I would have thought sweet potatoes were off limits as well, but hey, we eat pumpkin, need to look it up and compare. I know it has fiber.

Red, you have done amazing, I am doing pretty similiar I think to what you are doing but the weight isn't falling off, but, I was really high carb before I started on Sept. 3rd, so maybe it will take longer for my body to keto adapt? This is all a science but I feel so good that I can wait and learn.

Yeah, it is like when I first started losing weight back when I transistioned from LC to HFLC (but paid no attention to non-PUFAs and Protein).

Quick question, then I have to go, will be back later.

When I started my BF was and still is very close to 50% according to my tanita scale, which of course is not a very accurate measure but still one, just the same. Is the old adage true that muscle burns more fat than BF? I assume that is the case. So, would that not really slow down my weight loss as I have a lot of BF?

I am seeing minute drops though on my tanita as far as my BF is concerned so without exercise, it does seem that I am burning some body fat, which of course is my goal.

BBL Gang, behave yourselfs, I know how you get on a Friday night!

Good question. Maybe one of those two podcast will answer that. I will listen to them over the weekend for sure.

Sweet potatoes are okay. I wouldn't eat them regularly but for a starch they aren't like russets. I ate them occasionally after I got stuck at 205 and they never seemed to have an impact on me. I wouldn't risk them in NK unless it was an occasion like your trip or a celebratory dinner out.

I wonder if it has anything to do with how damaged the person's metabolism was before beginning? I know that I am super carb intolerant. Perhaps it is more spectacular for someone that is more intolerant of carbs?

Of course, there are other variables. Health, age, relative weight to lose, relative overall body mass, red hair.
