Feeling sick of it

Hi guys.
How do you get over feeling sick of eating fat? At this point, just the idea of me preparing a meal makes me nauseous. Its been only over a month and I reach this stage. HOW do you guys do it who are months or years into it??

I have never experienced that feeling. I never look at my food as fat but rather delicious nutrient dense food. I have been eating this way for over 5 yrs. without varying and have another approx. 3 yrs before that - so not a newbie....

Give us an example of how you have been eating? Maybe you could also peruse the 'induction food porn' threads to feel inspired.

I feel the exact opposite.....I feel like my body is finally getting the correct amount of fat, nutrients and protein and I feel like complete garbage when I get lazy and eat a pile of useless carbs and / or sugar. I also feel like an idiot for not doing enough research food and nutrition earlier in my life but I've been buying into the same "Eat Low Fat" lies that most everybody else is still buying into. Now if I were still eating a ton of the wrong fats like corn and vegetable oils then I would probably be miserable. I'm at the point now I don't like or eat olive oil at all. I make my own ghee from grass-fed butter or I use coconut oil for everything. I just feel a million times better than I ever have, my blood work levels are perfect. I no longer take medicine for blood pressure, triglycerides or anything else. I have more energy, I sleep better, I hurt less, my mind is sharper. But as far and actually eating or the thought of eating a bunch of fat making me nauseous ....lol I really can't relate because I love the taste of grass-fed butter and I pour it on just about everything I eat. Some days my fat grams consumption is as high as 200grams. but usually around 130g. Either way I never get tired or sick of it. I'm halfway through year 2 of this way of eating. Love it and I honestly feel badly for folks who don't understand how or why this is how we as human beings should be eating. In 50 years the mainstream with be saying "Oh my God I wish I had known soon that low carb/high fat was the best way to eat and live" Well y'all were told .....ya just didn't listen.

Excellent points on the types of fats. This is often not considered in the beginning and is really about as important as the carbs in terms of health.

I feel the same and the longer eating this way, the more I strive to make healthier choices. I am evolving and learning more everyday.

Eidah it's possible that you are in deep ketosis. I've read of several that completely lost their appetites for an extended period of time. There are many threads here with the subject.....no desire for food. It seems to happen near the beginning. It appears to pass and appetite with reasonable suppression replaces it.

If it's truly boring to you, I agree with Clackley to check out pictures and recipes to help inspire you. I find the food so much more satisfying than the high carb stuff I used to eat.

Looks a lot like my typical day....

Meal 1 - BPC with 1 tbsp MCT oil + 2-3 tbsp of GHee
Meal 2 - 2 eggs scrambled or over medium in 1 tbsp of ghee
Meal 3 - 5 oz oz of raw salmon or tuna,1/2 tsp ghee & gluten free soy sauce
Meal 4 - Guacamole made with 1 whole (150grams) avocado & 1 tbsp of mayo + 1 tbsp of ghee

Hi, Eidah. I don't know what it is for you; to me, the coconut oil jumps out as a question. I've tried several times to use coconut oil in food, trying different brands, starting out with 1/2 teaspoon, and trying to work up to using 1 Tablespoon. It always makes me feel "sick and nauseous". I don't know if it is the salicylates, or something else, but I gave up trying to use it as food, either cold or in cooking.

In case it interests you, using some other fat, such as pastured butter, or beef or lamb tallow might be a useful experiment.

All the best to you.

The way coconut oil is digested can cause discomfort (been there, have had to stop eating it, wait a few months, then begin again a few times). Metqa explained it to me once but I don't remember the reason.

I suggest you try eliminating CO for awhile and see if it makes a difference.

If I ate that diet, I would be sick of it too. It looks bland to me, do you enjoy it? Why not steak or ribs or bacon?

This is about healthy eating, not guzzling fat. A good book that educates you on how to make the best food choices would be helpful to you, I think.

I do not really care for most high fat cuts of meat & I still get plenty of fat in my diet without ever getting sick of fat. I don't drink coconut oil or anything like that.

I don't see anyone claiming to be guzzling fat and even if they did, I see no problem with this provided they are healthy fats and not crappy seed oils etc.. It may also not provide enough variety to be sustainable. The suggestion that eating lean meats is the way to health is erroneous in my opinion.

This way of eating is low carb, moderate protein, high fat.

Not in those words, perhaps, but the comment "sick of eating fat" stands out. I get plenty of fat in my diet but I never feel like I am "eating fat." I guess it is common to feel that way when one is just switching from a low fat plan to a high fat one.

There is nothing wrong in eating lean meats. I never said it is the way to health. Nor is eating high fat meats the way to health. I simply prefer the taste of lean meats over extremely fatty ones. I buy my meat for the protein, not the fat. But I'm definitely not on a low fat diet. I prefer to get my fat in other ways.

I detect a bias towards consuming fats (i.e. guzzling fats). If I am wrong, I do apologize.

The O.P. gave a description of their commonly eaten foods and it did not appear to be out of the ordinary for anyone on n.k.. If eating lean meats is what works for you, all the more power to you. However, it is not really consistent with n.k.. For instance, I love fish and seafood but on it's own, it is too lean and would never satisfy. I eat it with added fats. I do this in conjunction with a well formulated plan and do not eat anything without knowing the macro nutrient content and how that fits (or not) into my plan.

lol... No, you should know me better than that. I've lost close to 150 pounds eating a diet that is high in fat.

As I stated, I like lean meats. I also buy grassfed beef only & it is naturally more lean than grainfed beef. But I do eat other things; my diet is high in fat & definitely fits in with NK recommendations.
