    On a side... I have been using Califia Farms - Unsweetened Better Half Coffee Creamer, 32 Oz | Half and Half | Coconut Cream and Almond Milk | Dairy Free | Whole30 | Plant Based | Keto | Sugar Free | Shelf Stable (snagged that off the Amazon description! lol) And... I have also been combining my veggies :O mixing my Kumato tomatoes and onions together with my spring mix for a salad, and even topped with balsamic. I am only eating one meal a day tho, as I really am not hungry. I have to 'remember' to eat!!! Guess I am not hard-core on original protocol, but so far I like the numbers. KK... gotta get to the 'office' now. Laters!

    When you eat one meal a day, how many protein ounces are you eating at that time?

    I have a 1/4 lb of 90% lean beef... I do have some wild (Alaskan) pollock being delivered later today, so will switch it up tomorrow. I can't do chicken...unless it is dark meat.

    Down .6

    I remember during times when losses were less than the average and even stalled, inch loss would be noticeable.... although I did not do measurements this time. I also remember being more floored at the inch loss (over total weight loss) last time. For me it was sooooo hard to imagine I had 'lost' 65" of 'me'... I mean I am only 5'3" (63") No need to measure this round... I don't need the data point this time for me to know it works! I also remember the 'sloshy fat' right before a large loss (swoosh)...I am already developing that 'jiggle'. I remember when I first had it (much later on my first journey), I was like... OMG...I'm melting! LOL Something to be said for experience!!! I already notice a change in my ankles and calves... less puffy/swollen, and I see the change in my side-view also. That is the 'clean' food... no doubt! And a nice #nsv Happy losing, all!

    You only eat 4oz of protein a day? That is not enough to sustain a healthy body/physiology. The protocol calls for twice that for a reason! It is the bare minimum protein requirement of most people to maintain muscle mass.

    Thank you, and yes, I am aware of the protocol... but I also do IF... this is not my first go round. You are appreciated tho.

    Zero loss this morning.... but zero gain also! The only diff was I had fish instead of beef yesterday. Not a concern either way.... I have traveled down this road before, and I can feel a difference in my old joints! Inflammation has reduced, for sure, and I am sleeping better (once I can actually get to sleep... but that is for another journal) Rock your day, all!

    Are you in a plateau now? Try to do cheat meals every 1.5-2 weeks so that the body leaves the comfort zone and then responds adequately to your usual diet and stress.

    I wouldn't consider being in a plateau unless I am a few days with no loss. I agree on the cheat meals. Last time I did a second round and did an extended 90 day stretch. I had worked in a cheat day once a week, and I did very well, and the skin tightened nice. I had peeps asking if I started working out! Anyone that really knows me realizes that is a NO! lol I was taking a sup stack, I can't find my last journal to remember what all it was, but it did included DIM... I am post menopause now however... body has changed.

    Hormonal changes directly affect the condition of the body. I think you should see a doctor who will find the optimal substitution therapy - this is a normal phenomenon in the 21st century, which allows you to minimize the discomfort that menopause causes.
