    Afm- well I'm uP again :/ guess no almonds for me ! It's okay thought they made my tounge feel weird :/ definite allergy I didn't eat many but about 15 so up .8 today 137.3 dang it I refuse to adjust my ticker... I'm going to
    Try a if day but with fish for dinner ... Sigh do you think I could add in another Julian workout ? I want to so I'm wondering if I added ripped in 30 or 6 to six pack if that would help? I'm worried I'll work certain parts to much and not others but havent researched other videos yet . Also yesterday was workout to , I modified it slightly as I started out with 8 lb weights haha and today I'm not as sore . Was yesterday after the workout though . The geese are flying away this morning and I once again had no hot water.

    Hope everyone has a nice day
    Last time I did Jillian's workouts I gained 2 lbs in a week. There is definitely some bulking up with her workout. When I do certain workouts like Zumba, running, bar method or pilates then I don't gain. When I do anything really muscle developing, I gain weight. It usually just stays at about 2 lbs for me. But I do end up a little smaller in the end. Hopefully it is the almonds and you will just drop it if you don't eat them. Don't worry, you are at a great weight.

    Phfew, down one pound today. Didn't do an IF day yet, so it remains unclear what caused the almost 4 pound gain over the last week, but I will keep a close eye with a few foods in order to figure it out.

    Still doing an IF day on Sunday to go down more.

    Round 1 ended 3/25 30
    Round 2 ended 6/27 26
    LDW 185.8

    8/17 started high fat/adequate protein/low carb diet (nutritional ketosis):
    Starting weight: 185.4
    11/19 168.6

    Hi!!! What a coincidence! I was just about to contact you via FB and ask a Q! i decided to ask it here too, and here you are!

    Here's my question. Yesterday I realized I was eating a ton of fat. I had two cups bp coffee for breakfast (sometimes I eat an egg with breakfast, but only if I'm hungry), lunch was tomatoes & mozz with basil & olive oil & balsamic and an apple with almond butter. I got hungry a few hours later and had 2 sunny side up eggs cooked in butter. Dinner was mexican food where I took out the brisket and melted monty-jack cheese out of the corn tortillas and put that on top of the side salad. It had a fatty dressing and avocados & more grated cheese. One glass of wine with dinner. And, for the first time, I had 85% cacao chocolate from Trader Joes! 2 squares.

    Myfitness pal says that was 12% carb, 17% protein, and 71% fat. In p3, it was pretty common to get that much fat. But, as I go along, should I be watching that? I didn't have a gain today, but I realize it might take a few days to show if I were to gain from a day of eating like that. i've been eating p4 for a few days now and holding steady. I realize that I needed lots of fat in p3 so my body wouldn't go into starvation mode, put in p4, should the protein increase and the fats drop a little?

    edited to add: I can taste ketosis in my mouth almost everyday. It's confirmed by urine tests at the Dr's office where I got my hcg, but I don't have strips at home, I've just learned to recognize the taste. I don't know what that means as far as this way of life goes. I understand it's my body burning fat (at least I think so), but my Dr's office said it was bad for my kidneys and I needed to up my carbs. Thoughts?

    Your advice is appreciated!

    Carry2010 and I are neighbors, but we didn't know we were both hcg peeps until I stumbled on her avatar on here! Before she moved, she lived next door to me for the 8 years I've been in my house, so I recognized that for sale sign and the house, and of course, her as well. Let me tell you, she looks AWESOME in person. I have seen her go from looking healthy and "fine" to FINE! haha! So, she's an inspiration to me.

    Kim-My advice is you drop a lil protein when adding carbs i was eating 2200 ish calories a day, but have since dropped as i really barley eat 1300 on a regular bases before and now in phase 4. really its how your body reacts, i dont suggest calorie counting never have never will.

    Warning Rant (skip if your having a happy day/dont care)

    Im so mad right now\! i hate friends when they dont support you...my friend think im "boring" and gets mad im loosing weight... when i explain im excering and living paleo basically she freaks out and says thats unhealthy. I want my real friends back,,the ones who excerise and believe in nutrition and dont get snippy with people who loose weight with determination and dont give up. SOrry ill stop now im just so fustrated.

    I think the goal should be 'fat-adapted' not ketosis. Ketosis is ok for a while, but not long term. Mark's daily apple has some great posts about ketosis and fat adaptation. Here is one:
    http://www.marksdailyapple.com/what-...#axzz23v02Xx00

    Your protein is really low, imo. My general numbers are 70/25/5 in percentages for staying fat adapted. This is P3 and P4. I don't eat grains and eat a little starch on occasion. If you do eat more carbs, then you need to reduce the fat intake from what I understand, or you will gain.

    I am not in ketosis as far as I know and go in and out of fat burning easily, depending on what I eat. I try and keep higher carbs foods for the morning. I have noticed it makes a difference.

    That is funny that you were neighbors!
