So glad you're feeling better. The transition was a rough one for you, that's for sure.

Glad you are feeling better and making good progress on LCHF! One thought came to mind as I read through your posts....

Many of us made the mistake of going Low Carb and Low Fat because we have been trained/brainwashed by our Medical Professionals, Media, etc. etc. that eating fat will make you fat and clog your arteries! I believe that this is the primary cause for people that try LCHF failing in the long run....they do not go high fat!

Eating fat is healthy and in my mind all fats are good fats. And many recent articles dispute the negative impacts that consuming fats can have on ones overall health.

The problem is that when you go to eating very Low Carbs, your body will begin to look for a new source of energy....if fat intake is not going up and readily available you will then start to break down proteins for energy. And that can be dangerous, because the easiest place your body can find protein is in you muscles, sometimes including heart muscle...!

Also, if you do not combine low carbs with increasing fats, your cravings for carbs will not stop, in fact for most of us they get worse. That I now understand is why a number of the low carb diets I have tried always failed due to cravings, that eventually broke me down. But when I went LCHF after a couple of weeks, I had no cravings...and that made sticking with it easy as pie (SMILE)!

I eat fat and I do not count calories and my Cholesterol has improved in the last year and I have lost 50 pounds and lost 6" off my waste....and still going! Do not fear the fat, embrace it! Or you to will struggle to stay on a low carb plan...

Good Luck

It took about a week before I started feeling a bit better, granted I also battle fibromyalgia and chronic fatique so it is hard to tell what is what in making me feel bad. Make sure you are eating enough fat as the others have said, and make sure you aren't eating too much protein/carbs. I eliminate the carbs well, but my protein intake wants to creep up a bit. Good luck!

As far as Hungry, I made some low carb rolls and though they are not homemade wheat rolls they are pretty darn good for sandwiches. The best part is they make me feel full. Not hungry for at least a couple hours or more.
The recipe made 12 French style rolls and 1 roll has less than 7gm of carbs. Another thing that might be helpful is that they have phsilium seed, coconut flour, eggs, salt, water, olive oil and coconut oil, baking soda. The phsilium might helpful with the bowel movements. They mix up in minutes in the blender. They are sure helping me with my comfort food problem (bread and butter).
