Morning all, so nice to get to stop by before evening!
Cheryl, good morning and forget that bounce! I am on call this weekend, due to the issues the past few days, but I can connect and work from home as needed. I hope to get my Tgiving meal planned, we will have total of 4 this year, so really, this should be simple. Except everyone has a special thing.....
Becky, your retreat sounds like a great time ahead. Relax, dump the scale too. Enjoy it all. Back in another life I was a camp counselor and loved it....as long as I can stay reasonably warm that is! Young? Well I think so, but the calendar says 51!
Shreem, welcome! Love the pup! We love cream cheese, but I think I could never eat 8oz in one day. My new fav for afternoon snack is 2 oz CC mixed with 1 T peanut butter, natural kind no sugar. I eat cheese, HWC, sour cream too. We are not anti-dairy at all. But even if some are, you are welcome here!
Morning Darin! Stay up reading again!? I am going to start a new book next week when vacation time finally arrives....can't wait!
found some interesting will post separately on pot and mag....as many have had questions.
As soon as the temp comes up (yes I realize SG is a cold temp weenie)...warms to 50 I will head out to work in the garden. The hibiscus are still blooming and they make you smile.

I am not a nurse....to explain what I do would be hard. I have both financial, audit, IT, law, and clinical background in healthcare. I am one of the "silent" folks in healthcare you do not see. I make sure all sides do their jobs, and all things are programmed correctly, and that all patients rights/services are within all laws that regulate our healthcare. It is very rewarding, and stressful!

Morning!
Shreem!
I love cream cheese and my snack for a while was 2 oz cc, 2 T sour cream, 1 T cocoa powder, some liquid splenda, mix it all up. Was thinking of making some more of that today. I might add the HWC too to make it a little thinner.

Mixed some of my homemade mayo and horseradish last night to dip brisket in, yummo.

SG, wow, I don't think I could do those hours either, but, it was less than 10 years ago that I worked at a call center for FEMA and when there was a disaster, we would work 70 hour weeks sometimes, I know after Katrina, I worked overtime for more than 9 months straight, about did me in though.

Anxious to hear the info you have on pot and mag.

Hi to everyone else, hang in there, don't cheat and our scales will stay on the downward, although maybe slow, trend

Deborah, this is the nutritional info.
With granular Splenda:
Per Serving: 366 Calories; 36g Fat; 5g Protein; 7g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 7g Net Carbs

With liquid Splenda:
Per Serving: 354 Calories; 36g Fat; 5g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 4g Net Carbs

I had not lost any weight for days and I ate this last night as a snack and was down o.8 this morning. Could just be a coincedence. But...I was happy!

Buffy, I might add cocoa powder sometimes to the cheese cake pudding. Good idea...I like chocolate cheese cake!

RedDarin...it really IS tastey!

I posted this as well over on the NK thread, sorry for those of you who read both.

Ok, my latest concerns. I am not hungry at all, didn't think I would ever utter those words, and having trouble getting enough calories in. But, I am eating a LOT of fat to try to keep them up, but struggling on the protein. I get about 2 oz done and push to get 3 oz of meat, one egg is more than enough. I assume this will pass and I will get back into a hungry phase. And, I am soooo tired. Not sure if it is fall and getting dark so early but I am getting more than 8 hours sleep and by early evening I am ready to sit and read or watch tv, and then seem to dose off. Hope this passes as well, maybe my body adjusting to the change in WOE and weight loss. I am taking all the supplements that have been recommended, thinking of asking my Dr. for some B12 injections if this doesn't pass soon.

Pinky45, made your CC pudding today, it is wonderful. I added chocolate to half of it and increased the sweetener a little, very good. I had been making something like this with just CC and sour cream and while it was good, it set up too stiff, this is perfect.

There have been several posts on both High Fat and NK this past week with questions on potassium, magnesium.....there are several minerals that are valuable, they help in several areas. While wasting time for a worthless virtual server to return to working.....I went into my library to read:

Your body is always at work trying to maintain a healthy pH balance. The best way for your body to access the minerals it needs is through the food you consume or, through supplements. If the pH level drops below 7.2— even by a very small amount — the body goes to work neutralizing the extra acid. To do that, the body needs alkaline minerals like calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron, and potassium. When your body cannot find the alkaline it needs in your diet, it will steal minerals from your bones or your body's tissues. And this is very dangerous, leading to major problems including: heart, kidney, and brain issues as well as skin and bone problems.

Potassium works with sodium to maintain the body's water balance. In "more basic primitive cultures", salt intake is about seven times lower than potassium intake, but in Western modern cultures like ours, salt intake is about three times higher than potassium intake. When sodium is high, especially relative to potassium, the body holds on to a lot of water. This is why your blood pressure goes up when you eat salt, and why it goes down when you consume more potassium. Consuming potassium also lowers bloat, not to mention your risk for stroke by double digit percentages. Low potassium levels may cause heart disease as well.

Taking potassium supplements with any of several different blood pressure medications (including ACE inhibitors, diuretics, or beta-blockers) could lead to dangerously high potassium levels, a condition known as hyperkalemia. Symptoms include nausea, weakness, heart arrhythmia, and fatigue. If you're taking blood pressure medications, talk with your health-care provider before adding potassium supplements.

The best way to to ensure you're getting enough potassium is to consume rich sources, supplements are not always optimal. A few examples of potassium-rich produce include:
Figs, avocado, sun dreid tomatoes, pistachios, apriocots, winter squash (had some tonight, roasted with olive oil and garlic!), almonds, pumpkin kernels, bananas, peaches, pumpkin, green leafy vegetables, like swiss chard and kale, spinach, orange juice, nuts in general, beans of any kind.

You can take potassium supplements, and with NK limiting veggies you may need to consider to keep the pH in balance — but increasing fruit and vegetable intake also provides a long list of healthful nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and fiber. If you have high blood pressure, six key nutrients that anyone with high blood pressure should consider taking:
• Potassium: is very helpful for lowering blood pressure, as well as for proper muscle function. Recommended up to 4,000 mg per day, but most of that should come from food sources. In addition, you may want to take supplements. These are typically sold in 99 mg capsules or tablets. 99 mg twice per day, 2 total per day.
•Magnesium: 350 to 500 mg per day for most folks; this mineral is heart healthy, helps boost healthy glucose metabolism, protects and enhances nerve function, and supports healthy cell membranes. It is alsohelpful for muscle relaxation, reduces headaches, and aids those with disturbed sleep patterns. Good sources of magnesium include almonds, Brazil nuts, artichokes, and spinach. My favorite heart doc told me this week that the magnesium chloride is best, but I can't find that one available locally....the other -ate ones are good too.
•Calcium: 1,000 to 1,500 mg per day
•Omega-3 fatty acids: 2 to 4 grams of fish oil per day
•Vitamin D: 1,500 IU per day
•CoQ10: 100 to 200 mg per day (get the right kind...ubquinol)
* Vitamin C -- A major 10 year study showed that the lower the levels of Vit C, the higher a person's BP and risk of stroke. On esudy found that taking as little as 250 mg of Vit C daily slashed the risk of high BP by almost half. That said, 1000mg a day is usually recommended for base line health. Which is also valuable for anti-aging, it protects our telomeres! And it fights infections.

Buffy, any kind is usually great, I get the 1000mg capsule when I can find, or the pressed capsule. I do not like the chewables one, sour oh-my! And they have 1-2 carbs each!

Be sure to remember to check with your physician if you are taking any medications that may have counter-indicators with any supplements! Call the nurse, she can give you quick-time! You can also go to the website of the company making the medications, they provide all that fun stuff too!

Buffy...I started NK a week before you and the last few days I've had the same situation. Today I had bacon for breakfast and then didn't eat or think of food until 3:30 PM...did not want to eat, but knew I should. I also seem to start yawning and falling asleep sitting up watching TV before dinner and/or after. I have been going to bed early and reading and falling asleep, and I also get 8 hours of solid sleep. I figure it's the time change catching up with me and the dark dark afternoons that used to be sunny and bright. I hope we both adjust. I hope it's temporary, but you aren't alone. I did B injections and they did nothing for me...hope you have better luck. The sublingual B12's seem to work for me, but I'm out. And I have my "Happy Lite" that is for SAD and maybe I need to get that out in the mornings and early afternoons and see if that helps. Don't know what to tell you. But I feel the same way, so you are not alone.

new and really needing support

Hi you all

i really need support and probably help,

i have been overweight all my life and tried any diet, after lots of reading decided to stop eating carbs as much as possible and been doing it for three months, at the beggining it was great, i AM feeling great, i am eating less, i feel energetic, i dont have cravings anymore, i dont binge, just wonderful...

BUT, i am not losing any weight for some weeks now, and i am starting to feel sad, and thinking that maybe is all the fat i am eating, that maybe i should starve my self?

i have read that people sort of melt when they stop eating sugars and carbs but it is not happening to me...

any support/help/advice?????

thanks!!!!

I also seem to start yawning and falling asleep sitting up watching TV before dinner and/or after. I have been going to bed early and reading and falling asleep, and I also get 8 hours of solid sleep. I figure it's the time change catching up with me and the dark dark afternoons that used to be sunny and bright. I hope we both adjust. I hope it's temporary, but you aren't alone. I did B injections and they did nothing for me...hope you have better luck. The sublingual B12's seem to work for me, but I'm out. And I have my "Happy Lite" that is for SAD and maybe I need to get that out in the mornings and early afternoons and see if that helps. Don't know what to tell you. But I feel the same way, so you are not alone.
Thank you so much Shelley, sounds like we are going through exactly the same thing at the same time. I did read one thing last night that might be part of my problem, and, you mentioned another.
I take prescription potassium per my Dr. and on my last test, 4 weeks into LC I tested normal. But, due to leg cramps, I added more. Read last night that if you are on certain BP meds, you should not overdo the potassium because it can cause your BP to go too low, which just might have been what was happening to me. So, I am going to back off the extra, eat more salt if needed for the cramps, and see if I don't feel better. I didn't sleep nearly as sound last night and woke up before 7:00, ready to get up so that was promising.
And, your post reminded me, I have a SAD light, would be a good time to get it out and use it. Going to try these 2 things this week and see if it makes a difference.
I sure hope you find a solution as well.

Red, I haven't been logging every day this past week, just too tired but just know it was a struggle to get much food down. going to log today and as I posted to Shelley, I might have found my problem in too much postassium for my BP meds.
