OK- you have managed to pull me out of lurker land w/ your admission of being a runner...

I'm training for first full marathon (this May) and also 14+ weeks into eating LCHF. I've lost 17lbs with only 3 to go, but the bigger accomplishment is that I'm keto adapted for running. The book is fantastic- a lot to absorb, but so helpful.

Be warned that it felt like it took forever to get fully keto adapted- I felt the normal adjustments for the first 1-2 weeks like everyone else, but it took longer for the stable running energy to show up. But, I am THERE! Two weeks ago, I did my long run of 10 miles and could have kept going...my energy was so stable and endless in a way I've never felt before...I attribute that to the fact that my body is now fully adapted to running on fat.

The weight loss is 100% from how I eat because I've been running for years w/ no weight loss when eating traditionally.... just my experience/comments


I've been following this thread (and others) for weeks and am so thankful for all those who post so faithfully- there are so many of us who are learning from your experiences even if we never post.

Is there any particular recipe you all would recommend or any tips or gotchas when making it?
don't know if anyone else has responded but here's one I like: I have several recipes for fauxtatoes.

Ham and Cheese Fauxtatoes

3 c. cauliflower (or 1 head, fresh)
3 T. butter
3T. sour cream
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. black pepper
2 c. diced ham
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. heavy cream

Steam cauli, mash with butter, sour cream, garlic salt and pepper.
Spread in bottom of greased casserole dish
Top with the diced ham.
Whip the cream till soft peaks form.
Fold in cheddar cheese
Spread over the ham layer.

Bake 375 for 30 min. or till cheese is golden brown.

Let me know if you like it.

That is awesome Larla! I can't wait to be keto-adapted to see the difference in my running. I look forward to chatting with you more!!

Red, we are seriously missing you online today, come out and tell us you are doing ok. Know it is hard with the smoking, the almonds, the sunflower seeds, the toothpicks, so many things you are trying to conquer at once! Thinking of you!

I went out to lunch with my BF, I wanted eggs so we had to go to Dennys. I ordered 3 scrambled eggs and thankfully asked if they were real without a filler and she gave me the option to get 3 whole cracked eggs scrambled. Good thing I asked!!!! They were actually really yummy

Hi to All!
Deborah, good to have you back, hope you are doing better.
Oceana, wow, your avi is beautiful. 142 is great! I have given up CO for the immediate future, can't get past that nausea. Keep talking about that bacon and I'll need a roadtrip to Washington!
Oh no Becky, I hate when that happens! My dogs would have helped you clean up! You will bounce back down!
Buffy, any down is good!
Hi Linda. I don't know much about the MCT, except I have read other's praises of it on threads and on other websites.
Cheryl, I consider bacon a meat!
Hi Faith, wow, another shortie like me, and I am 51, and 125-127. Welcome.
Buffy, if you find a Co-Op in Texas, send directions!
Pam, I am eating eggs, meat (including bacon!!!)...
Welcome Ainsley! We have guys on here too! Good luck with the running!
Welcome Larla! Delurking is great. Same on the running!
Newbies--Read the beginning post by Darin, he put it all down in a great format. But we all have our personal variations, so it's a tweaking thing too!
Hi Deb, great recipe, never thought about adding ham! Yummy. And you bake it, another good idea. I nuke it all.
Hi Gord!
Maybe Darin has finally put on the hockey mask and gone to the doctor????

Yahoo I am back down to 161.
I ate alot yesterday, I was afraid it was too much protein.
But I am down 1.5 lb, still not to my lowest low of 160.5 But maybe this EMF will get me to the 150's
I am so excited.
And I woke up feeling awesome.
How are you guys feeling?

Hi Ainsley! We are the same height, frame size, and our starting and goal weights are about the same. You are a little younger though! I think you will love NK; welcome!

Yes we are Deborah! I look forward to learning from you! You look amazing!! the lowest weight I was before I had my 2 kids was 125. My girls are 3 and 15 months old. I was pretty tiny at that weight. I also lifted weights so I think I had quite a bit of muscle too. I would love to see the 130's again let alone the 120's! How long did it take you to get down to 116?? I was down a pound this morning- 147.5 but that's from TOM ending. I had a high carb dinner last night, pizza and a few mini chocolate bars leftover from Halloween (they are all gone now!) I am officially starting today. I had 2 eggs for breakfast, slice of chicken breast and coffee with a splash of cream. Where does wine factor into this? I love to have a glass of red with dinner.
I can't wait to get my book in the mail (art and science of low carb performance) I plan to do a 3 mile run tonight as well

Morning!
Congrats Cheryl and Becky on your losses!!! It is surprising at times how we kind of have to work on getting the calories high enough, who would have thought we would ever think that.

Red, still missing you.

I am still doing my experiment where I am trying to get in at least 2000 calories a day, it was successful last week. 2 days I didn't make it, made it yesterday but I was really stuffed. Will see how it goes after another week.

Becky, you have come a long way since July 15. KUTGW!!!
