    Cheers Sable..the one thing that i thought was quite funny...they told me that the occlusion would have occurred gradually over many, many years..but the minute i told them i was on LCHF with high cholesterol readings, suddenly eggs & saturated fat was quite possibly to blame..:)

    Dear Pasha, I wish I WAS in detention today.
    I am having a brunch meeting with lovely friends and I just know that there will be absolutely no portion control possible, but a proliferation of cheese and red wine, croissants, egg dishes of all kinds, baked fish, and so on. Even fruit - and cakes. It is a traditional gathering which I must attend and I enjoy the company very much.
    My plan is to abandon ND , but to retain the calorie count with low carb food as unobtrusively as possible.and keep drinking water. Will this work?

    Professor Taylor states, it is the weight loss that is important, not the method or pace of loss. Breaching your personal fat threshold is critical to reversal, for those who will achieve it.
