Not for fat loss, but to use up calories..... generally, those who exercise more can use more carbs. At least that is what I understood DANDR to say. Otherwise, just eat more fat to fuel the busy body. Or wagyu beef!

I have a couple of copies of DANDR here, but I don't remember him saying if you exercise you can eat more carbs and still loose weight. IDK maybe it would burn off some carbs but I don't think it will erase eating a plate of spaghetti.
I'd rather just not eat the carbs and eat the Wagu Beef....

People on MFP say that if you are fat adapted you can exercise off infrequent carb slips. I wouldnít know about that being early in the process.

I am literally taking it one day at a time here, trying to believe this will be my WOE but having trouble motivating to eat enough. Iím sick of most meats already and Iím so not hungry. I did make the cauliflower pizza myself and it was dreadful. I am waiting 6 more days of induction to try the fathead bread recipes, I hope they are good!

My headaches are significant and I eat a lot of salt so thatís not it. Iím beginning to wonder if I am uncovering an intolerance, possibly to cheese or mayo.

Sheila, becareful of the fat head p izza-- look at the carb counts carefully, too. Im just sharing MY experience. I made a big pizza for the family, and I ate most of myself... totally far more than my daily alotment of carbs. So think small and make an individual portion if you think that would work for you.

I love meats. There are MANY recipes that change up the meats. We even add fennel seed to grd beef and suddenly we think-- sausages!! ( Along with, salt , pepper, an egg to bind it.) Tumeric goes great with most meats--- a litle sauce of sauted co or evoo with scallions, salt, black pepper and a tsp of ground tumeric. It can be changed up with using cream, or onions, or dried garlic.

Do you eat sweet peppers? Sauted sweet peppers and onions ( or leeks/scallions) with salt and pepper is good too.

Or cream over sauted mushrooms in oo, co or butter.

A sauce makes it a whole new dish .

Yes Fennel!
Funny you should mention that because I just received my order for Rachael Ray, Buon Appettito! Italian seasoning.
One day last year I stood reading every single Italian spice mix in the store and finally saw this one low down on the shelves. When I saw fennel I instantly knew that was the spice I was craving. The stuff in real Italian sausages.
Now I'm having a hard time finding this brand so I ordered it and the scent is just heavenly to me.
