Sorry Becky!

I find just the act of traveling makes me show a gain on the scale.
It doesn't last. I bet you'll drop it right off.

You are not eating enough sat and mono fats.

Did you read the intro post? Some good information is in it.

You'll get back to losing in no time Becky!

Probably a good idea to avoid the scale after a trip like that for a week or so at least after you get back firmly on plan.

Nuts can derail me pretty quickly and not all of them are very LC friendly. I imagine that you were getting enough carbs from them to push you up into the range where your kidneys started retaining fluids.

Becky, my weight is always up after traveling, either by car or plane. Takes 2-3 days for it to settle back to what it really is, I am sure it is swelling.

Something I noticed when I kicked my protein up to calculated amounts and kept carbs at 5% is that to keep my calories at the lower end of the range skews my ratios to 75/20/5. I suspect this may be alright while losing weight as the additional fat can come from the body. I am not willing to go to 0 carbs at this point. So that seems to be the trade off.

What do you mean by maintenance carbs? I think the calculations are based on maintaining ideal weight not current so you should have a little room between the two. (I am very new to this so someone else could chime in here to correct me if this is wrong.)

Well, generally speaking:

Lettuce
Tomatoes
Broccoli
Squash
Jalapenos

I think I've finally gotten tired of jalapenos though. I got a pablano when I was at the store a day or two ago - they are very tasty with chicken and cheese.

Usually my carbs are under 30g total for the day so I don't normally eat from all of those items listed on any given day. I'd have to check my log history to be sure though.

Like yesterday, I have under 4 grams total carbs so I didn't eat any veggies at all. Those < 4g carbs almost 100% came from HWC.

Whatever LC friendly veggies you eat keep it under 50g total carbs if you are pursuing NK.

I'm so new to this I have no answers, only questions.

I've spent the last hour catching up with this thread, started at the beginning and read all the way through to NOW. So much good info, input and wonderful humor. I'm excited to know you all and I'm excited to be here at the beginning in December, from the start so, to speak.

Just a couple of observations....

On Wednesday, at work (I'm a server at Olive Garden) halfway through my shift I felt as if I had lost my mind. Things that I do every time I work became so difficult. Multitasking was out of the question. At one point I felt like taking off my apron and just going home. Luckily I have fabulous co-workers who stepped up to help me get my "shift" under control. After reading through this entire thread I realize I was in the midst of some kind of "no-carb crash". I started NK on Monday of this week, so that had to be it right?

There was some discussion earlier about wheat and depression. Is this covered in Wheat Belly? I have the book but I'm pretty sure when I read it I was not interested in giving up my bagel and cream cheese. I need to read it again, obviously. I definitely went through a withdrawal when I stopped eating wheat, much like quitting smoking. Feelings of sadness and being tearful and depressed. I spent the first weeks trying to find a substitute for wheat. Peanut butter bread, coconut drop biscuits. As time went by it didn't seem to matter anymore and I decided to fore go ALL grain, and I've stopped looking for substitutes. I definitely had a wheat addiction.

Reddarin, I'm asking in advance so as not to presume, if I give you my stats would you help me figure out my protein/calorie needs?

This is interesting. When I've started to crash in the afternoon, it wasn't due to a lack of energy, I actually felt like I was having a panic attack. Lightheaded, heart pounding, nausea, couldn't catch my breath. I thought it was due to lack of protein as I had been holding off on eating any significant amounts until dinner.

Wow! That is a ton of reading. I did that on the very first thread back in October that Kristn had posted - about 50 pages I think - so I know the effort you put in!

Yeah, you crashed but that is really good news I think. It means, I believe, that you are undergoing the conversion to fat as a fuel source from carbs.

Don't worry about calories during this period. Eat lots of fats that are not high in PUFAs. Don't binge on protein.

The good news is that once you become keto-adapted you will be kicking *everyone* else's butt at serving. No kidding. Your job is essentially an endurance sport and keto-adapted athletes don't suffer from bonking the way carb fueled athletes do. I expect that you'll be pretty shocked about it when it happens and you realize it

I'm not saying you won't be tired or beat at the end of a busy shift or that your feet will hurt less. But I am saying that you'll notice that you don't need a 'second wind' and that other carb eating servers will be tuckered when you are still going strong. Sort of like how Morpheus told Neo that when he was ready he wouldn't have to dodge bullets.

I'm curious to know, either way, so keep us posted.

It seems like Davis touched on it but he sure didn't dwell on it if he even mentioned it because there are no clinical trials. He probably had to walk a fine line on not getting sued when someone quit wheat and wasn't magically cured of any and all maladies no matter how he qualified his statements.

Other than maybe some pow-wow about this or that all I need to know is your goal weight to plug into my spreadsheet. You have that in your profile blurb so here ya go...

Goal Weight: 135

NK Page:
(x*(1-.18)*0.6 = 66-111

Exercise Page:
(x/2.2)*0.8 = 49
(x/2.2)*1.2 = 74
(x/2.2)*1.5 = 92
(x/2.2)*1.8 = 110

Dr. Phinney's recommendation is 1.5g/kg that results in 92g protein daily.

For a goal weight of 135 the calorie goal would be : 2148 (35kCal/kg) with a floor of 1841 (30kCal/kg - for an obese and/or very sedentary person).

Calories: 2148

Protein grams: 92 (368 ~ calories)
Fat grams: 198 (1782 ~ calories)
Carb grams: ??

Good morning friends

Yesterday I ate a couple servings of veggies for the first time in a few weeks. They were delicious I had a small amount of broccoli and caul roasted with garlic cloves, and then some brussel sprout salad. They cured the tummy trouble I was having I also had a couple squares of 85% organic dark chocolate which is much sweeter than the 90%
I noticed I was really hungry when I woke up this morning and I'm assuming it's from the veggies.

I was down 1.1lbs this morning

Your crash was probably a blood sugar related crash. It sounds like it. Maybe CT will tell us, I bet she knows if those are low BS symptoms.

Her crash was the classic carb flu type crash - fuzzy headed, unable to concentrate, listless, etc.

Thanks so much for the info Darin!

I have done LC before but this is all new territory for me. Fat is my friend? What a concept! I absolutely cannot reveal to my family this WOE. It's gonna be no grain, no sugar, no starch... otherwise they will FREAK out. I feel it's the right way to go BUT, I don't have the "chops" to explain myself yet...

It's just me and DH at home but I get to see my grown children all the time (lucky me!). DH loves salads and protein (and sweets, oh my). Not hard at all to follow.

I don't really know? I do have a little extra around my lower belly and I have bigger thighs and arms. I really need to get in the gym and gain a lil muscle back and tone up.
I'm going to continue to eat veggies more now.
Tonight I'm gonna have a big chicken salad from one of my favorite pizza places and cover it in blue cheese dressing.

Did you ever measure your wrist to find out your frame size? Maybe you can still lose a little bit more weight?

Or just plan on punching your BF periodically when he remarks about your ribs.

Yeah, it kinda tastes like a cross between sharp cheddar and cream cheese, if that makes sense. I don't LOVE it, just had it on hand, happy to finish the dang thing off so I can move on to real cream cheese for snacks tomorrow. Almost done my second and last wedge of brie too.

Hahah I think that's a good plan! I broke my ribs and breast bone up to my collar bone last year so maybe that has something to do with them sticking out even tho they've always been big.

Haven't measured yet... I couldn't find a soft tape measure.

Not trying to sound like im giving a speech here... but
From the bottom of my heart I thank you guys! I feel blessed to have found this thread. I've been thinking all morning about how a low carb forum has played such a big role in my life, It's not the forum, it's the people that make it. This is so much more than just a website to talk about low carb, to me this is a LIFE support forum because we definitely don't keep it all low carb Now I don't wanna get too sappy on all of you, but for people that I have never met and probably never will, I really do hold you all dear to my heart and care for each and every one of you!

Red, can you figure out my macros again since everything has changed and i'm going to start focusing more on fat.

I'm 5'5 med frame? 139.8
and I'd really like to be around 133-135
Congratulations! That is quite an accomplishment!

So I ate 5.3 oz Neufchatel to shut it up.
MMMM, Neufchatel. Although it's very similar to cream cheese, I can taste the subtle difference and sometimes prefer it.

I will keep it for 2 weeks (hardly anything left by that point anyhow). After that, go by smell I guess
