Clackley, are you another CATHY??? Geez. lots of us here! Your marcros are pretty much where mine are and I find it HARD to keep them there.

Today I had what I call a NK Shake- (our other Cathy told me about it) for
breakfast- it is high fat, and about 250 calories

Lunch was oopsie roll with 1 oz of leftover beef and a piece of cheese, 1/4 ounce of pork rinds with some dip

and dinner was Mahi-Mahi THREE ounces, and 4 ounces of cooked asparagus
and I am struggling to get my fat where I want it for the day-

diet jello with an ounce of HWC later and still only 95 grams of fat which is like 76% for the day!

I spend my life playing with this stuff, but am finding that I really don't need as much food as I always thought and also how fast it adds up! Geesh!

Good. I am sure you look wonderful! We just cannot go back to the old way of eating or we put it all back on again.

Kathy, meant to ask how your oopsies turned out? Did you get your new pan?

I went to dinner at Olive garden and I think my day is blown really now. I ate the venetian chicken, and it came with asparagus and broccoli and did not eat the bread, but the apricot sauce probably will do me in, or the wine Ahh well... better not test tomorrow...

Cathy, I still have "issues" with them, but they turn out nice in the pan!
I just have to be patient folding the yolks in the whites! It is NOT one of my virtues!

Not mashed, but I really like cauli-rice. Just cauliflower shredded in the food processor.
Now that I say that, I haven't had for a long time, so will add that rare good white food to my shopping list.

I am becoming more intrigued with this WOE. How much water do you all drink? I strive for 64 ounces minimum a day.

Kathy, I love mashed cauliflower. Make it in the food processor, and add cream (naturally) and cream cheese, along with some butter, salt and pepper.

Totally divine.

We've been doing cauliflower rice too lately, have you done that?

Finally order 30 days of ketone strips and they are supposed to be here on Saturday (does UPS deliver on Sat?) Either way, once they are here I will hit this super duper hard. I've already been doing a good job, but I'm going to try even harder, at least for a few months and see what happens.

I'm already tired of eating out this week, my daughter is visiting from CA and I haven't seen her for almost a year, and lunches have been out. My ketostix still show pink though, so I guess that means something (I hope at least) and I haven't packed on any weight.

I'm looking forward to the July 4th cookout because there is one area low-carb is easy to do, if you stay away from chips and potato salad and fancy drinks. I'm bringing deviled eggs, and antipasta platter (cheese, salami, olives,) super fatty dip (yea!) and veggies. I can munch all afternoon if I choose.

Wishing everyone a happy 4th of July.

I have done the rice and I saw it done on TV one day and instead of putting it thru a food processor they put it in a blender with water and let it go and then drained the water! Looked easier and less mess!

The mashed cauliflower I have found works well with my "stick blender" too and someone told me once to add cottage cheese to it and it is good too! Good luck this week! You can do it!

That is a good amount Bella- I have a 24 ounce water bottle that I fill 2-3 times a day, two 16 ounce coffee, 16 ounce "shake" plus water with dinner.
When I notice muscle cramping I drinks some broth, which is on the schedule for today! Kathy

Muscle cramping is my most serious issue. In addition to daily magenesium, calcium, and lots of potassium, I have found that additional salt provides the only relief. I was a skeptic about salt when I first joined LCF in March (potassium had done the trick for me in previous low carb efforts), but I am a convert now. Right now I need more than daily broth. I've never been one to salt things so that is a big adjustment. I am hoping when I settle more into my eating plan, I won't find the need to drink salt water at times. I am certainly not one of those people who retain water. I found when I let my self get a bit dehydrated at a conference about a month ago, cramping hit me with a vengeance. So now I am really working on tracking my potassium, salt and water . . . I don't know what the magic balance is but I know the result I want is not waking up with leg cramps. The last few days have been the best in quite a few weeks. Three days ago a night without a single cramp and only the mildest sorts the last two nights. One was a cramp in my big toe, go figure, but lasted only a few seconds.

How much water do you put in your salt?

A recent tip I learned about mashed cauli is to put it through a potato ricer to extract as much water as possible. It makes for a very good end product but the amount of carbs goes up per serving because now there is less of it.

It varies a lot, basically because I don't have a good idea about water to salt ratio, so mostly guessing. I did read recently about aiming at 2 tsp a day. So just as a rough guess I am typically mixing a scant tsp in 8 ounces of water. What's your advice?

I am not a huge fan of cauliflower. I want to like it, but smeh!

Not testing today, definitely knocked myself out last night... went off the rails a bit. Boo for me! Now I have to work myself back down the scale and back into ketosis!!

Happy 4th everyone!

Oh interesting! I normally microwave mine in as little water as possible, then drain well on paper towels. So the potato ricer is AFTER it is cooked?

I don't have a clue Bella! Maybe someone here will. I make grassfed beef broth and that is what I drink when I feel the cramps start- two cups and in the 8 cups of broth that is made- I put probably a heaping Tablespoon of sea salt....

I've started putting a pinch of salt in my coffee and using salted butter.
I think I can up the salt in my broth a bit. Someone posted on another thread about putting a pinch of salt into every glass of water.

Interesting to me how my leg cramps get integrated into my dreams. My toe cramp was in a dream about having gout. How weird is that!?

Bella, I think you are special to be able to do that! Interesting what our brains do huh? Yeah, we should probably be doing a pinch in every bottle at least! Kathy

Boy do I understand THAT! You got any good recipes for Clam Chowder? I just figured one up and it only came to like 75% fat, which I thought was low for cream, cream cheese, butter and bacon!

Down a bit today, 163.2# for me this morning.

I'm waiting for my test strips in the mail. I've upped my protein intake and my calories a bit, so I'm curious to see how am I doing.

Happy 4th of July, everybody!!!

I think we should plan a date and all do a big steak and wine- purely as a scientific experiment mind you to see the impact it has on our different bodies! Anyone in??? Kathy
