NK - nutritional ketosis
LCHF - low carb, high fat

AMEN May60. I am having the same issue lol. I can figure out most of them but some of them are quite hard. I think when people reply to a newbies post that they should not use them. All they have to do is look at the persons number of posts to determine if they are new or not. it could scare some new people away, that's all I am saying.
