Allow me to reiterate, because past experience has shown me that no matter how clearly I explain myself, someone will always get their panties in a bunch by trying to apply what I say to their unique snowflake situation. SO: if you have been following a long-term super-strict ketogenic diet and feel that you are at your physical, mental, emotional, and cognitive best, carry on! This post is not for you. This post is for people who do not fit that description. I am daring to suggest that maybe—just maybe—this one, single approach might not be the best way for everyone, everywhere, no matter their circumstances—to eat.

Love this, got hooked and read more and more of her blog, and almost got lost there, but managed to find my way back here, through the portal of your Journal. Whew! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for posting this, Thud! It answered a lot of questions for me. And this is my new mantra!

Can anyone clarify for me her position on MCT oils? I know she is saying that we should not feel a need to put "extra" fat in our diet, just for the sake of more fat. But she did say something about not meaning MCT oils....I have a teaspoon of coconut oil just by itself in midafternoon most days, and I'm wondering why I do that, LOL I'm sure I read something at some point of the advantage of eating it, and something about it increasing ketosis -but in view of this article, does that make any sense? Even if it DOES increase my ketones, is there any point in that? Hoping my question makes sense!

I can't speak for Amy obviously but here's my take on it (one who has been adding 1 oz fat [butter/coconut oil] to my morning coffee for 6 months) - If you like to add some fat, add it. I don't think it's particularly beneficial to add a lot nor do I think it's particularly harmful to add a lot. I know that when I eat mostly fat I'm not hungry very often during the day. That's a benefit if you're looking to drop weight

Also, the same Amy wrote another article that's kind of funny that's refered to a lot here, Janet or JEY100 does anyone and I like it and her
