WHAT I AM EATING
Yesterday, I ate like this, which was right on target:
136g fat (78%)
For breakfast at 5:00 am, I had a shake that was comprised of coconut milk, water, non-dairy protein powder, frozen berries, a few drops of Stevia and 2 tsp. of cod liver oil.
For snack at 11:30 am, I had my Sunrise Cocktail, which was comprised of MCT oil, olive oil, lemon juice and a few drops of Stevia.
For lunch at 2:00 pm, I had a couple of thick slices of cooked bacon, a bit of Bubbie's sauerkraut and a cup of the homemade chicken bone broth that I started the day before in the slow cooker.
For dinner at 6:00 pm, I had a half of a can of wild caught sardines in lemon oil, half of a large, sweet red bell pepper and a cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate from the Fat Fast Cookbook (shameless plug).
I drank 72 oz. of water, but never within an hour before eating or an hour after eating, in order to not dilute my stomach acid.
