No foxl,

I work in electronics calibration and I can't stand engineers. Every time I call an engineer and say their ideas don't, the inevitable response is "it works on paper." Just like dealing with docs an D.

My favorite quip, though not to insult any USMC vets or families, is Semper Gumby, meaning Forever Flexible.

I think I'm getting it but by tomorrow I'll have to 're-get' it all over again. *sigh*
No DLC you get it.. My money is on you

Thank you for the thumbs up lol


"A constant state of rigid flexibility". I can work with that.


I think I'm doing the LCHF wrong. I understand the ratio's are 80 fat, 10 protein and 10 carbs (I have seen different ratio's i.e 85 fat but I'm keeping these numbers simple ).

From entering my meals in Calorie King I realise I'm closer to 75 % fat, 6 carbs and the rest protein. Is that still 'good' or am I doing it wrong?

Each person is different, DLC. If rose ratios work for your numbers to meet the goal you want then you're good. If not, then you may need to drop the protein and up the fat just a bit. It wouldn't take much either. A tablespoon or two of coconut oil, or equivalent amount of fat may be enough.

Pretty good really.
Like David sAid, your numbers will let you know!
Keep track for a while, then change your ratios, then see if it had any effect on numbers. We'd be glad to help if you want to share them

I was just about to post - got the numbers incorrect again. That is tomorrows ratio because I realised the odd days I have been entering my meals it averages to be around 60% fat and 25% protein. Tomorrows ratio got to 75% because I had to tweak my menu plan to raise the fats when I realised my fats were way too low and my protein too high.

I can't tolerate CO sadly but I'll have to add olive oil and more butter to my meals. I'm already having HWC in bucketfuls (well it seems that way).

Thanks Donna, I'll post a weeks worth of numbers when I have them. I've only just started testing again after the horrendous heatwave we've just had.

Olive oil and butter are fine. Watch the cream as the hidden carbs may be higher than you think.

Try making a gravy from the pan drippings of the cooked meat. Just some butter and cream, salt and pepper to test. Tastes great and can be added to meat or veg.

This sentence is bothering me. If your blood sugar is not coming into the ranges you're comfortable with, check the trace carbs on the HWC. Unless it's different where you are, all HWC here has trace carbs. Depending on the actual brand, it's about 6-8 grams per 1 cup of liquid.
