following: LCHF: Low carb, High fat / Ketogenic Diet
performance: gaining 2.0 lb a week

Hello everyone :) My name is Kari and I am excited to find an active community for not only weight-loss but for lifetime healthy maintenance. I have been overweight since childhood and have been on the weight roller coaster for most of my adult life. My fiance and I have decided we will adopt a healthy lifestyle together to lend each other support. We each have 70+ lbs to lose and have decided a Ketogenic diet is best for us (Low-Carb/High Fat). My goal is to lose at least 50 of those 70 lbs before January 2015.

Looking for advice
There is also a hormone secreted by the liver called Leptin. That hormone is responsible for fat loss. When the body becomes accustomed to the daily routine we have set for ourselves, the leptin stores in our body become depleted and it's easy for us to hit plateaus. In SOME cases, it's nice to do a re-feed day in which you still eat foods that are good for you, but just MORE of them so you are actually at a calorie surplus for the day. That one day of surplus is often enough for the liver to wake up and start producing Leptin again, which will kick your fat loss into overdrive again. Once your re-feed day is complete, go back to your regular diet with a caloric deficit of at LEAST 10%. You can keep cycling this program as many times as you like on a weekly basis.

Oil and a low fat diet
Khawk, have you done any research (supported by ACTUAL medical studies) about metabolism and how your body works? If you do, you'll find that low fat diets DO NOT work long term. The cells in your body are comprised mainly of cholesterol and fats (along with water). Your BRAIN actually works BETTER when fed a diet rich in dietary fats. Scientists have linked high carb (low fat) diets with numerous metabolic disorders such as Celiac, Crohn's, Diabetes (types 1 and 2). They've also concluded many neurological disorders also stem from a diet high in carbohydrate (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Epilepsy). With a LOW CARB/HIGH FAT diet (just the opposite of what doctors years ago recommended), many people can actually decrease and eventually eliminate the need for medications for high cholesterol, insulin etc. Do some research on KETOGENIC diets. For someone with a metabolic disorder, such as yourself (high cholesterol), you'll find a ketogenic diet will normalize all kinds of chemicals and hormones within your body. A ketogenic diet is naturally anti-inflammatory, high energy (through the use of dietary fats as fuel), it promotes healthy skin, hair, nails. It allows the cells in your body to repair themselves after years of abuse from high carbohydrate diets (which actually damage cellular growth because they restrict the mitochondria from reproducing).

Adjusting carb counts & printing
you can't adjust the nutritional facts on ANYTHING here that is already in the database, but you CAN adjust your portion size. Use the blue drop-down menu that states portions and put in what is correct. For any item on here there is usually an option for whole portions, oz, g, etc.

Cluck in with your '[b]EGGSpert[/b]' opinion
The cholesterol in eggs is actually GOOD for you, which is contrary to what the nutrition community has been telling us for the past 5 decades or so. The mitochondria in our cells is nearly ALL cholesterol and therefore NEEDS cholesterol to survive and replenish cells. Just like fat, dietary fat is GOOD FOR US! Fat makes up the majority of our bodies' cells. The nutrition community has been wrong and has been PROVEN wrong by their own studies over the years regarding fat and cholesterol. Yet, because the government has been heavily invested financially in these studies, they can't actually ADMIT they were wrong, so the various nutrition "experts" still claim a diet low in fat and high in carbohydrates is still the way to go....Studies in Europe (Sweden) have actually linked Alzheimer's to diets high in carbohydrates and have shown that diets high in fats and cholesterol can actually slow or stop the onset of such ailments. ALL HAIL THE INCREDIBLE EGG!
