    Dextrose is a form of glucose. That’s why when you get an IV from passing out it’s a 5% dextrose solution.

    I just read an article that coconut oil is pretty much poison. So what is it, healthy, or poison?

    teh googles is showing that they have much more protein than fat. i assume there must be different varieties

    From what reading I've done, there is a theory that MCT's are easily/quickly converted into ketones via some biochemical process that i don't understand, almost like a shortcut to ketosis. That seems to be the primary basis for why people use it.

    But coconut oil itself just seems to be just garden-variety saturated fat, though. And saturated fat (again, from what I've read) is extremely controversial. One extreme seems to be the established medical/nutritional community belief that saturated fat is extremely bad for you and will give you heart problems. This is the view of the American Heart Association, among others. The other extreme seems to be a sort of newer, almost conspiracy-theory-oriented view that saturated fats are totally fine, and have been slandered by the sugar industry for years. A great deal of internet keto advice seems to be based on the assumption that saturated fat is healthy, which (again) is controversial.

    I asked a doctor I know, who is on keto, about this, and his attitude was sort of like : Saturated fats are worth it IF you are successfully in ketosis. If you are not actually, successfully in ketosis, then you should avoid them.

    Get an indoor grill. Or do the reverse sear method.

    if you want a diet that lets you eat sweets and drink soda then keto isn’t where you want to be. Make sacrifices and learn discipline

    There are recipes out there if you Google. Stevia + eggs + cream + carageenan is most of it.

    Was able to fit into size 31 501s and size medium flannel. I am down about 13 pounds more or less. I think I am losing inches more than weight which is great.

    cheese wrap update:

    it was like eating a huge slice of cheese. Not really worth the money but I felt compelled to try

    they’re not huge so you can’t wrap up much. I put a burger and some spinach and tomato inside of it and could barely keep it together

    Yeah. I should've specified as a change up to lettuce. I like lettuce wraps but usually I just end up eating stuff out of a bowl instead

    Two or three and you’re pushing your limit. Again I’ve found I can wrap anything I do with tortillas with lettuce. We’re making carnitas tacos tonight wrapped in lettuce.

    30% of your daily carb limit on one tortilla seems a bit much. Someone in here posted some that were 3g carbs.

    I’m not worked up. It’s pointless to get uppity when you learn that you can’t really eat candy or ice cream on a diet designed to promote weight loss - especially with someone on the verge of having type 2 diabetes

    All good, I’m just trying to eat healthier so I figured I’d ask. Ice cream and Dr Pepper are the only sugar heavy things I really like. No soda since Monday has been pretty easy though

    most nutritionists will recommend staying away from low carb desserts or protein shakes or diet soda because it makes it more difficult to shake your cravings for sugar. That’s one of the reasons I don’t do protein bars

    I'm saying I've stayed in ketosis and my protein levels have been very close to my fat intakes according to MFP but I'm no nutritionist.

    I’d love to know how much fat and protein you’re taking in. It’s very very very tough to stay in *optimal* ketosis if your fat and protein levels are where you say they are
