    I eat as much as I want. :) I’m not much help huh? I think if my body craves fat it’s doing so for a reason.

    I do know one reason for fat (and saturated being the “best” type) is to help get enough calories in/improve food palatability. It’s also supposed to be good for the thyroid.

    Yea, you have no shot at good digestion taking something that shuts off part of it.

    I made them once but it was sooooo long ago I don’t know what recipe it was. I remember I used beef gelatin. They were good except you couldn’t roast them. They melted right off the stick!

    I started back in mid March. I was in pretty crummy metabolic shape back then after low calorie ketosis. Oh and some potato dieting lol. I feel worlds better these days. Awesome temp! Had to convert it :)

    Well I can say after your metabolism is up you can drink a lot more, indeed you have to. I’m back to making sure I get enough(I am outside a lot).

    Yea, the protein is great, but after a few bites I just can’t handle the consistency. It’s good in a smoothie or something though.

    “Raw” is where you’re going to go wrong. You’re not going to absorb enough calories that way.

    It’s a very good food, I don’t think a person would continue to eat it that way though. That’s how I was about orange juice. Just went nuts on it for a good while. Started one day after I got done working really hard trimming some horses. I wanted juice so I stopped and grabbed a bottle for myself and my sister, plus two more for later, one for each of us. Well I drank both of mine one right after the other! 32 oz of oj gone in a flash. And from there I just drank the tar out of Orange juice for a while. Now I may have 2 cups a day or a little more. Some days less. So my body calmed down about it but I still have some every day normally.

    Are you eating it on things and with other things? How long have you been eating that much butter?

    I find it hard to believe you could get too much without you starting to find yourself repulsed by it. So I would eat it so long as you are eating plenty of other things as well. You probably need it.

    I don’t think you can as long as your body is asking for it. Did you come from a low fat diet or?

    Oh and I meant to say, I was tired as could be when I started eating again, for a while, but it did pass and energy replaced it in waves. I might be tired 5 days in a week and energetic 2, a couple weeks later I might be tired 3 days that week and energetic 4. At this point, a tired day has become a rarity and I mostly have energy as long as I get my sleep. I took a crapton of naps in the beginning.

    Steven, how awful! Reading your story, thinking if I had just received an animal that had been through what you have been physically, I’d expect it to take a year to be in good health. I’m a farmer, so I think that way ha. So anyway, keep at it.

    To the OP I went more low glycemic to start, if I ate fruit it was like a quarter of an orange or half an apple, ate very little grain (except once a week I ate all I wanted of dominoes thin crust). I slowly lost weight (been overweight since a kid and started all this at 199.9 lbs). After about 5 or 6 weeks, my chronic lower back pain subsided. I remember the moment it stopped hurting. I was at the theater and I thought “something’s different” The I realized it was a lack of pain in my back. Anyway, I did this for a while, then eventually got off grain (except that once a week pizza, which I was careful not to overdo but I ate pretty good (I tested my blood sugars, didn’t want it over 140). I was really happy. But then I stopped losing weight at the lower 170’s after like a year. I was really wanting to get to about 150. So then I cut carbs more, below 100. Lost a few more lbs, upper 160’s woohoo! Then I really went and did it. Ketosis, 1,200 calories (later I learned I burn nearly 3,000 on a lighter day). Boy was I cranky! Get out of my way. And I was tired and I was obsessed with when I got to eat again and what I was going to eat. And it was just all eggs and cheese and fat wads. Because I was doing moderate protein ketosis too. So I lost down to the lower 160’s started eating more like 1,500 calories because I was starvin Marvin. Stuck. No energy, cold, felt like crap, constipated. That’s when I started rrarfing, that was like back in March. I’m back in the 170’s again but I fell pretty awesome. Ran 5 miles this morning. I’m not starving, in fact I’m not going to hit my calorie goal today, no way. I poop now.

    Only thing is, my heels are cracking again. Other than that everything is pretty much better. Hormones can be a little whacky but that comes with *any* change.
