I'm in Ottawa, Canada and haven't found them yet. I suspect they are VERY expensive to export. I'll keep looking.

I am Glad you are Saving money! I enjoy that part too

When people not on here ask me about my diet plan I refer to it as LCHFMP which stands for low carb, high fat, moderate protein I don't know why I never mentioned it before here

I like that... LCHFMP. If we 'the beginners" of Mary's new diet are successful, Mary needs to create a cook book and make millions! She can be our Guru!!

If you are talking about the wheat bran if you find it in the store that is totally fine. Some people get confused with wheat bran and think I mean a regular cereal not plain old pure wheat bran. I haven't seen it in the store but it's worth a try

I have been talking on random threads for moths now but I have got to say having a thread I am really involved in really helps me to do better.

I'm glad I have all of you guys to keep me accountable and determined. It makes a huge difference

Okay, that makes sense LOL! I'm a hair under 5'8.

Well, when you do the FF, your intestines/bowels empty pretty good (ideally) so once you start eating more solid food like veggies and more protein, they start to fill back up. So that adds to it.

It is NOT okay to do the regular fat fast long term beacause you will slow your metabolism to a crawl if yout eat 1,000 calories or under for any period of time. I just wanted to make sure everyone understood that and wasn't starving to death

For reference: I eat 1,750 to 1,950 calories per day and I lose as fast or faster than most results I have seen on the traditional fat fast
Yes, that's what I figured. Whatever works for everyone individually is what we should all do. However I'm still using my HCG drops so I will be okay.

I think I'm aiming for about 1200 cal today. I got some more peanut butter and I couldn't decide whether to get smooth or crunchy, so I got BOTH lol

It's a double edged sword for me. I can easily eat it all day and be satisfied, but then I end up eating half the jar.

Maybe you can help me, I bought a bunch of avocados, but they're not soft and scoop-able. What am I doing wrong?

Avo's continue ripen after taken off of the tree....don't put it in the fridge till its at a softness u prefer. Leave it out on the counter or put them in a brown bag on the counter...only put them in the fridge if u want to stop them from ripening

hope this helps

Hi all!! I am stocked up on coconut oil.
Just had to share something with you! In an attempt to up my fat and cals a little more today, I warmed up 1 cup of vanilla almond milk (unsweetend), added 2 tbs of coconut oil, a dash of cinnamon and 3 drops of Stevia. OMG! It is so good and comforting. You have to try it!!

I'm Canadian too!! Great to have another canuck to share info with because the stores that Mary and Christina talk about do not ring a bell for me. Perhaps you and I will be able to network when trying to find stuff!
