Rguarino's Journal, 13 January 2017

I had found I was only losing very small bits of weight like .2-.4 lbs.. id realized that although I was getting my macro percentages right I was indeed not getting enough fat. I was averaging about 80g so I upped it to 100g the other day and it's dropping a lb or more a day. It's funny because I've been helping a few ppl learn and try keto and I keep saying you need to up your fat.. it's not enough you won't lose if it's not high enough lol sometimes you really need to take your own advice! Today I am the same weight I was for vacation last year.. with 6.5 weeks to go. I'd like to hit my first goal of 150 by then. 13.6 to go!
163.6 lb Lost so far: 29.2 lb.    Still to go: 35.6 lb.    Diet followed 100%.

You seem to be doing really well with your macro balance.I find getting the level of fat high enough difficult, I intend to try fat bombs. I can't get my head around bulletproof coffee - the idea of adding extra fat to a drink just seems wrong. I've moved onto double cream in my coffee today as it doesn't have the carbs (sugar) that milk does. I try to eat in a short period of time intermittent fasting of 18 hours not eating (including while asleep) and 6 hours of eating a day seems to suit me. I'm still fighting the carbs though.

I dont eat fat bombs, I am not a sweets person and the savory ones do not appeal to me.. I do 16:8 IF. I do spend time educating my self on my WOE. I find things easier to do if I understand how it works. Then I find recipes with proper fat, protein, and carbs to fit me.

I'm still feeling my way with IF and sorting out a WOE that suits. Thanks for your reply.

Love that sweet little piggy! I tried higher protein a while back with lower (not low) fat and it didn't work for ME. Once I added back in my coconut oil in coffee weight moved again...The funny thing is I just use a little bit, but that seems to be all I needed...
