I'm so excited that there's so many people responding here with their loads of knowledge.  I used to be skinny for most of my life, and I really think it was cause I was doing a low carb thing as a habit.  But I fell off that wagon years ago now...

Okay, so someone help me out with sources of fat please. I have zero problems eating tons of meat.  I like cream cheese, but what can I put it on?  Same with almond butter...  Also is peanut butter okay or not? 

[...]- I am SO JEALOUS of you for being able to run.  I used to run.  I can barely get through a workout at all these days.  I'm taking it real slow with working my way back to real exercise.

Green Cup:  Here's a link to a PDF that may help with food selection.  I can't have peanut butter, my son is allergic.  Make sure the almond butter you have has no sugar added.

And, I really had to take it VERY slow with exercise.  I jumped almost 13 months ago and really only the last few weeks have started jogging again.  I have good days and bad days with exercise.  Just do what feels right.  I did yoga for a long time.  I did nothing for even longer, lol, during taper.

[...]...you should probably get a keto mojo. It's the cheapest and best bloor ketone test meter. That way you can see what happens to your blood ketones. You can also test insulin levels with it. After bigger workouts your insulin levels can increase a bit as blood ketones lower because your body is using them for fuel first. Your muscles release glycogen I'm thinking after an intense workout as you exhaust the ketone reserves which is what your body prefers to use first before glycogen.

[...] you probably shouldn't be eating too much dairy because of the casein. Goat milk yogurt and goat cheese is acceptable because there is no casein or lactose to worry about. You need to be careful with meat too. Get most of your protein from plant based sources like Macadamia nuts, pecans, which are loaded with healthy fats and low in phytic acid....but these nuts don't have as much potassium as other nuts. I use roasted or sprouted almond butter because it removes most of the excess phytic acid. Raw almonds are high in phytic acid which is an anti nutrient that inhibits the absorption of zinc and magnesium...phytic acid is basically an insecticide. So buy roasted almond butter. Eat cacao powder. There is a snack called Keto Cups that I eat pretty much everyday at the moment. Check it out. Hempseed protein, cacao powder, sprouted almond milk, coconut oil, acai powder or puree, some pure organic stevia makes a decent shake in the blender.

Eat two roasted Brazil nuts a day. They have selenium and chromium necessary for thyroid function. You don't want to do a dirty keto diet eating a bunch of meat and the wrong fats. You are going to be getting most of your calories from fat so it is importance to keep a Omega 6 to 3 ratio of at least 4:1...shoot for 1:1. Grass fed and finished beef and wild caught sea food. About an 8oz portion of meat is all you need on a ketogenic diet. Look at the seafood list low in mercury online.

You should never scramble eggs because the Omega fatty acids  in the eggs are easily oxidized. Sorry boil is the healthiest method. I'm not implying that your an egg scrambler btw. I used to be. I guess cooking them in butter would protect Omega fats from getting oxidized. Saturated fats do not get oxidized because they are saturated with hydrogen atoms. So Omega fatty acids ,polyunsaturated fats are easily oxidized. Cooking temperature is important because you can make your good fats unhealthy if you cook with the wrong oils and wrong temps. Olive oil should not be used to cook in high temperatures. It's good for mixing in things raw. You need to use things like avacado or macadamia nut oil which have higher smoke points. Cooking with coconut oil or with things like grass fed butter or tallow is a good option for higher temperature cooking since these fats are not altered by the cooking process since they are saturated. Adding butter to coconut oil may be an option to prevent the milk contents in the butter from burning up I think while sauteeing something. Avacado oil and butter seems like a better combo maybe. Pork and chicken are going to have alot of Omega 6 so moderate. Down a few krill oil capsules if you eat pork. I think I'm limiting pork to once a month because I like ribs and artisan salami. I like these turkey jerky sticks by Chomps . Tgey make grass fed and finished beef jerky. Those and ketocups keep me sane. There are things I'm going to try eventually and cheat a little. I want to make my own pizza with a low carb cauliflower crust eventually. I'll add more to this later.

Great thread! Thank you!

I notice a connection between eating keto and relative ease of taper.

The things that are saving me are keto diet, NAC, NAD+ nasal spray, and theanine.

 Going through withdrawal caused a lot of inflammation all around my body. As soon as I started the keto diet, it went away. I thought I was going to be 30-40% deaf in my right ear for the rest of my life… And my hearing came back as soon as I started the diet.

It just drains the body of any swelling. Cancers need glucose to survive and staying on keto prevents glucose from being around.

 I think for us, the best benefit is that it rebuilds the nervous system.

 All these anxiety medications have shot our nervous systems.

 Another huge benefit is running the brain on Ketones ... Clears the glucose deposits therefore eliminating the brain fog we’ve developed.

[...],

     Yes, it keeps down the inflammation.  I've been on it since July.  I take the MCT OIL in the morning in my tea and grass fed butter.  Mix it then heat it up again.  It also satiates you till you eat.

[...], I've never had Keto breath, so I don't know.

[...], I make a rocket fuel latte with tea every morning.  It's the best.  I use hot black or rooibios tea, coconut oil (or MCT oil), cacao butter, rock salt (on days I run) and collagen peptides.  Sometimes I use other things, but that's my go-to in the morning.  It is very satisfying, to your point!
