How did you even come up with that recipe?
I had to figure out what to do with the scraps of roast beef one night. Too small to just eat on their own. Then I thought, it would make a great roast beef sandwich, but since I'm not eating bread anymore that won't work. Then I thought -well what about mixing all the things I love about a roast beef sandwich but without the bread and voila! my beef and butter bomb was born. It's just the elements of a very basic sandwich- w/o the bread. and a ton more butter than was ever on any sandwich!

Well, I caught the AT&T guy down the street and told him my service was down. They were working the next street over so I think they broke me while messing with that other person's stuff.

He said he'd look at it but I might have to call it in. That is the first time I've had anything less than excellent customer service but I did catch him flat footed and he thought I was pointing fingers or accusing them of breaking me intentionally. Nothing further from the truth. I figured they'd broke me unintentionally, that is true, but I also knew that as soon as they knew I was broke they'd be able to fix it right up - which is what they did apparently. *And* my service speed is back to full throttle like it should be - it has been running slow for weeks due to noise on the line I think.

Hooray!

You can probably just cut down the bake time a bit to compensate. Sounds good though like they'd come out extra crunchy/crispy

Yes. That works out to only about 3 pounds a week. Very doable.

Now, will a person's body cooperate? *That* is the question! But if you respond well to LC then LC or a combination of LC/NK should do it. Keeping in mind that when you get close to goal a lot of people stall out.

I think I lost 60 pounds in 6 months or a little under.

I have been just using salt and pepper and frying it in refined CO. That makes for a very flexible chicken serving. I can eat it in a salad or use it in a quick skillet dish

I also make it with a marinade of GF soy sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, crushed red pepper and ground black pepper. But it is less versatile that way so I quit doing that a few months ago.

Now I just thaw it, rinse it off, pat it dry, salt/pepper and fry it up. Mmmm good! Then I dice it up and portion it out into 3oz size, ziplock it and throw them in the freezer.

I feel great, the best I have in years but weight loss is just not easy. I loset down to 140 about 10 yrs ago but I battle between 170 and 150 back and forth.
I have been trying to skip breakfast because seems like I want to eat too much.
But I am not my happy go luck self when I skip breakfast. I have a daycare and don't wanna be grumpy cause the kiddies love me all smiles.

HELP?? Please
You have maintained a 120 pound loss for 10 years????

You feel the best you have in years?????

There is no need to skip breakfast and be grumpy!

What is your current weight, activity level and calorie intake daily?

How much is 'a few glasses of wine'? What brand/kind of wine? Boone's Farm is not technically a wine.

I had a 1/4 cup this morning with cream and I could barely finish it. Should keep me full for hours!

I've never been a fan of breaded fried chicken. This way sounds really yummy tho. I'll have to try it.

probably the real old timers who used cast iron, seasoned it out on the range with good old lard!

why not try non-hydrogenated lard...my local brand is called Tender Flake.

Take time to spit out the shell, takes away fiber but burns calories

I lost down to the weight of 140. Which was 100 lbs of weight lost.
(which is a 70 to 80 lb of weigh loss maintained, wow sounds better when you say it that way)
I am at 162lbs now but I am 5'1 size 12/14
I am active, I chase 5 little kiddies around all day. My pedometer says I get 18,000 to 20,000 steps a day.
My calorie intake is 1600 on a good day 1900 on a worse day, somedays might be worse.
My wine of choice is duplin, Hatteress black river red. 2, 3.5 oz glasses
on the weekend.

I wondered what the tag line Oceana was. I thought it was either an ode to 1984 or to that artist that I cannot for the life of me find now that I'v spent an hour hunting for her. Maybe the song wasn't Oceana? She wore a wet suit with bells on it for the video. Short and from Europe somewhere. Now I'll go nuts trying to remember who that was.

Hmmmm. 7oz of wine is probably not the problem. Even 14oz over 2 days shouldn't be a problem if you are accounting for the carbs.

1600 is not enough calories for you though. 1900 is closer but still a little low. Bump your calories up to 2100 consistently and keep your fat macro as close to 80% as you can get with good fats (not polyunsat). Assuming you are getting in enough protein.

Phinney's little formula for a calorie recommendation is (per ideal kg) 30kCal for a very obese sedentary person and 35kCal for a 'normally' active person (but Phinney is an exercise freak so normal to him is probably not normal).

(130/2.2)*30 = 1773
(130/2.2)*35 = 2068

I'd say you fall squarely into the 35kCal zone though.

Hi Linda and Welcome.

I asked the same questions when I started (and also the text abbreviations that I still don't get!)

NK is Nutritional Ketosis. It's how we are eating. Most of us have read the books by Phinney and Volek on NK and how to do it, why, etc. HWC is Heavy Whipping Cream...a staple for most of us!!! Yummy stuff!

Hiya Linda!

NK = Nutritional Ketosis

HWC = Heavy Whipping Cream.

NK is something fairly new to the LC community. Phinney describes it in both of this Art & Science books and in his podcast with Jimmy Moore.

NK is, essentially, maintaining a constant state of ketosis in the range of .5 to 3.0 ketones per dl of blood (I think - I don't jab myself with needles on purpose so I don't test myself).

At any rate, once you arrive at NK you adjust your fat up or down to raise or lower your calories to either maintain weight or lose weight. Protein stays pretty constant and carbs are kept low to very low like zero to 50g *total* not net a day.

=)

Hi Major Red....we are on at the same time. Just wanted to comment about the sunflower seeds....remember when I made the fat bombs with sunflower seed butter??? You told me that they are on the list with PUFA's and to try to use something else like almond butter for the fat bombs. Just thought I'd give you a little friendly reminder!

I was named after that guy on Bewitched believe it or not.

Yeah...and you expect me to believe that?!?!!?! (just kidding).

I don't have any more sunflower seed butter....replaced it with almond. I need to make my own macadamia nut butter for the next batch of fat bombs. I have the raw nuts and also a bottle of macadamia nut oil...should work well in the food processor.

Loved Bewitched....but didn't Samantha's mom call Darin, Darwin, Derwood and all sorts of other names? My step brother is Darin, same spelling, and because he was a dork, we always called him Derwood and funny names. Did anyone do that to you?

Also....LOVED X-Files!!!!!!!
