My dinner was fettuccine Alfredo from the Fat Gast cookbook. This stuff was sinfully good.

I've cooked it like that twice before and it smelled delicious but it didn't make me hungry.

One thing that I have noticed the last few days. Since I have pushed my cals up to about 2400 I am experiencing less appetite suppression. Not 'hungry' per se but not not hungry after several hours if you know what I mean.

I had wondered if I was over eating protein and that was causing the strangely different appetite.

But the morning after my 2.2g/kg day I broke the 200 mark which surprised the stuffing out of me.

I wonder if the calorie level is the key factor? Is it low enough to lose weight (yes) but high enough to forestall the normal devoid of appetite sensation that strict LC produces? If that is the case then why is that so? Does it imply that if you have no appetite at all you are not eating enough so your body is shutting down metabolism-wise?

I had thought that about 2000 calories was the right level for me. But my losses have been more stable in a downward direction since bumping to 2300 and 2400. 9 weigh-ins with 8 down days and 6 of them consecutive down days even if only a small amount. It is a total of 2.9 pounds down since intentionally bumping calories up.

When I was hitting 1900 to 2000 calories I was up/down/same a lot.

My average calories for last week was 2364. This week, so far, has averaged 2414.
See, I have been struggling. Everybody talks about not being hungry but I have been hungry all the time here the last couple of weeks.
I have kept my calories right around 1600 to 1660. almost up to 80% fat 16% Protein and 3 or 4% carbs. You would think I wouldn't be hungry but I have been.

Yesterday I had 2 Tablespoons of CO and 1 HWC early. still got hungry way before lunch.
Guess I am just backwards, or it is just where I have early mornings. Come to think of it If I try to wait till I get a chance to eat lunch That makes about 6 to 7 hours. I am working pretty hard during those hours too.

I don't have a link but it's in the Fat Fast cookbook. I think it's fatfastrecipes.com. There are great high fat recipes in there. I've loved everything I've made so far.

The fettuccine is shirataki noodles, 1 tbs butter, 1 tbs chive and onion cream cheese, 2 tbs Parmesan.

Wash and drain the noodles and nuke for 2 minutes. Drain then nuke again for two minutes. Drain again. Mix butter and cream cheese in with noodles until creamy. Add 1 tbs of Parmesan and mix then top with remaining Parmesan.

The noodles with pesto was friggin awesome!
Do the same routine with the shirataki noodles, then add 1 tbs pesto and 1 tbs olive oil. Sinfully good.

I'm not sure which stores you have but I found mine at Kroger near the egg roll wrappers. Also got some at Whole Foods in the refrigerated section near yogurts.

They're chewer than regular noodles. I hated them at first but the recipes in the book were so tasty. They also smell like fish when you first open them. Ewwww. Rinse and drain well.

If all else fails there's spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.

Try bumping your calories by 200 - a hundred in protein and a hundred in fat. At ~160 you are probably burning at least 2500 a day.

It also helps to make your sauce in advance and let the noodles soak in it for a few hours - they take on the flavor of the sauce after a while. I had a variation on this today for lunch - used 2 oz. cheddar cheese, 1 TB philadelphia garlic cream, 1 TB whipped cream cheese and 1 TB hwc. It was too soupy, but the flavor was great - definitely a keeper!

Sorry I've been awol today, another really hard day at work

I did pretty good today finished off at 1606 74%f/22%p/4%c

Congrats to everyone that had success on the scales and with their eating today.

I second the poppers - we love those for a treat...never tried the shirataki - hubby hates fish so they would probably be a no go for us.

Have a great night everyone...hopefully tomorrow will be less crazy for me so I can chat a bit.

Hi everyone.

I got my blood ketone monitor in the mail yesterday, so I tried it this morning, and it was 4.3. That doesn't really seem in the optimal range.

I also took the batteries out of my scale, and then put them right back in. My weight went from 146 to 153. I'll buy new batteries today, but I may be overweight again overnight.

I'm not upset, because I never have trusted how light this scale runs. It will be much better if I can get it to measure true.

On a happier note, my daughter won a Best in Show at the rodeo with a goat that she bred (as opposed to just buying a nice doe and showing her) I'm so happy for her.

They show again today under a different judge. I'm excited to get my report of how it goes.

I hope everyone has a great Thursday.

You are allowed to at any time brother. There are no contracts here. No magic. I follow my own advice and I explain why I think what I am saying is the correct way to proceed. After that it is up to you.

Goolash - hope the back pain lets up soon... Those poppers look amazing!

As for the noodles - I made the asian noodle recipe out of the Fat Fast cookbook. I ended up overeating that day because they were so good! I will have to try letting them sit in the sauce overnight to take on the flavor, sounds like a good idea!

I got below 132 yesterday, which has been a huge sticking point for me. This morning was just over 132, but the scale is definitely trending down. So far I've lost 5.2lbs of the 12lbs I want to lose. DH is mad because he has 'only' lost 5lbs in the last 8 days. When we did slow-carb last year, he dropped 10lbs the first week. I lost about 2 lbs in the month we were on it and didn't feel that great. It definitely wasn't the program for me.

Do you have the Performance book Genevieve? As far as I know, that is the only book that has any detail about self-testing for blood ketones. You might post a question about it in the NK sub-forum. I think there are at least a dozen people that are currently doing home blood tests so they might have some information.

I say, put the old batteries back in

Hooray for DD!!! And congrats to her!

Jimmy Moore's got up to 5 and he didn't know why but it came right back down. Maybe just track it for a few days and see what happens. Jimmy Moore

Can't wait to get the strips for mine and see.

I haven't tried those. I've made the Alfredo, the pesto noodles, the Mac n cheese, and the sweet and tangy macaroni salad. They were all so good but the pesto noodles and Mac n cheese were my favorites so far. Could go crazy with those!

Every recipe I've tried from the cookbook has been great. No complaints.
