(sounds funny as i read it...) If the interior is ice cold it will be raw and the outside will be well done. This is especially good to know w/ pork and chicken...the two things you don't want raw in the middle!
I do it without fail with pork and beef but chicken scares me too much. I only allow it to sit out for 10 mins or so max. If it is too cold or still partially frozen I zap it in the microwave for short periods real carefully.

HOW can i get that way up there yet not mess with my numbers and jack the cals WAY outta whack? Have about 7-8 hundred left for the day, but higher protein will eat that up fast??? How long till i am no longer clueless??

From Wikipedia: baba ghannouj -Arabic -dish of eggplant (aubergine) mashed and mixed with virgin olive oil and various seasonings.

It is absolutely delicious! and it's pretty low carb too! I eat it with a spoon.

i've always been so proud that my precious DUKE's mayo is sugar free and ooooo so very delish! So to just be certain it was "safe" i looked....first ingredient is soybean oil..............

Darin, what are these hufa (?) oils you are talking about? I NEVER eat anything that has partially hydrogenated anything.....and i so thought my mayo was safe! Never heard about that....until yesterday!

PUFAs. Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids. Most veggie oils are high PUFA oils. They are not good for you and they do not work well on an LC woe.

Phinney relates a story in the Long Term Stalls podcast about a clinical trial he ran years ago. The food was tightly controlled and very limited. The nurses that prepared the limited menu used ingredients containing 'healthy' oils to make chicken salad and some other mayo based nasty dish. All of the participants refused to eat these PUFA oil based meals and the trial was run over time so the reaction was striking because the first guy in the program never met the last guy in the program - it wasn't because they told each other it about it.

He also identified PUFA oils as a problem elsewhere in the Stalls podcast advising the questioner to look at their fat sources and get rid of the PUFA based junk.

And there are probably a lot of other examples/warnings I am forgetting off the top of my head.

sigh.......i guess my dogs will love getting it in their dog food!
but I can see the appeal of a "cleaner" taste using high quality oils I had (HAD) some french walnut oil that I would KILL to get my hands on another bottle! My mom scored my last one when i did HCG last year....

congrats on the weight!
And EVERYONE who saw the scales move!

I read in a blog somewhere that by the time you buy enough cream to make enough butter....one would be homeless! Unless you are lucky enough to know someone at a dairy! Though, I would LOVE to try fresh cream that hasn't been six months getting to my store!

Is there a point that ya'll totally lose that sweet urge? Or are there some poor unfortunate souls (that would be me) who would rather eat sweets than reg. food??? Though, i am digging this avocado w/ salmon!

Theresa, download that podcast I mentioned by Jimmy Moore with Julia Ross. It has some great information about over coming a sweet tooth.

Google 'jimmy mooore julia ross carb atlcx 19'.

She has updated her book The Diet Cure too. I put it in my online shopping cart to remind myself to get it when my backlog of books to read has gotten more reasonable.

Myles, mine mixes just fine. I let the blender mix it up for about 3 minutes. Sometimes I'll taste some bits of CO, but its nothing I can't get over. I also add 5 or 6 ice cubes after I mix up the first 3 ingredients so its quite a bit thicker.

I just remembered I'd missed this post earlier Theresa.

Is it a quite a while after eating? Did your last meal, when this happens, kinda sit high up in your stomach?

If high fat or protein is the culprit then it is likely caused by low stomach acid I think. You can drink a little apple cider vinegar diluted in water. If that fixes it then the problem was low acid.

Google 'apple cider vinegar low stomach acid'.

cool! I will try this. I used to do an acv lemonade style drink. I haven't really payed attention to how far after my meals it is happening. I got the feeling it was from the high fat. It did have a serious effects on the restroom.

I am not unhappy about where I am "on the chart"...I just gave up trying to hit 120....! 5 lbs higher is where I originally wanted to hit...didn't count on the issues with my tummy and high fat. Now to figure out maintenance in my post-meno stressed world.
