Zero carbohydrates

If you live on low carb high fat-food and you loose weight, all is good. But if you realize that nothing happens with the weight after a copple of months, you might need to change some levels of food.
LCHF means that all carbs comes from vegetables and dairies, mostly from cream and cheese.
As a woman and been dieting since you can remember, are older (40+) this is typical to get in to a plateau. Week after week, and even month after month and the weight is the same. You feel good but you want to loose that weight!
The key is: loose the dairies! Look over what type of greens you eat too!

There is a way also to go zero carbs, wich we call fakir in Sweden:
That means you only eat fat and proteins, that's it!
I tried to "fakir" in october last year and that resulted in loosing 9 kilos between october and december. I stopped at christmas.
 BUT! Those first weeks was HARD! I experienced to feel really sick = ketosis flue. You feel sooo tired, so drained, the stomach explodes and you are afraid to be more then three meters from the toilett, but after that first period of conversion, you start to feel awsome! Lot's of energy and just love the feeling!
I was so happy to get under 100 kg for the first time in my adult life! about trying to loose some more?
I was kind afraid to try this, now when I work. How will I feel? Will I get that upset stomach and tiredness?
I started on monday and nothing "bad" happend. The third day, Wednesday, I felt any conversion-problem: Tired and thought I would get the flue but the next day I felt fine again. And I lost 3 kilos this week!
That means 5 kilos to 90. I am going for that!
Theese morning, when I woke up, I had so much energy that I went down to the gym and tried the cross fit-machin! I worked on it for 12 minutes with a pulse of 140. Also tried to work my shoulders on two other machines...FIRST TIME EVER!
I feel great and proud of myself!
What did I eat this week?

Monday: Started to make eggmilk: 4 eggs, two tablespoons of coconut oil, 4 tablespoons Ghee (butteroil) wich you mix with 4 deciliters of boiling water. (Watch out so you don't get burned)
Breakfast: Coffee with eggmilk.
Lunch: 2 eggs with 1.5 tablespoons butter (Wich I make in the micro at work)
Dinner: Two fried eggs, mackerel in tomato sauce (I fiddle the mackerel out of the tomato sauce), mayonnaise. Some slices of creamy cheese.
Coffee with egg milk  during the day breaks.
Tuesday: Same as Monday but started with egg coffee instead of coffee with eggmilk, then I add one egg, 1 table spoon coconutoil and 2 table spon of Ghee.
Wednesday: Breakfast Same as above
Lunch: Same as always: Two eggs with butter in the micro.
Dinner: Same as Monday and Tuesday.
Thursday: Same breakfast and lunch
Dinner:  Butterfried Entrecote with champignons and bearnaise sauce.
Friday: Same breakfast and lunch
Dinner: Pan fried cod with butter and butter-boiled spinach leaves, about 1 cup. (0.6 kh/100g)
Saturday: Coffee with eggmilk.
Lunch: Two fried eggs with a little creamy cheese on top - after my little exercise.
Dinner: Hamburgers made by myself with fried mushrooms and onions (6 kh/100 g of onion). I will eat around  half an onion.
I am not 100% consistent with zero carbs as you can see, because I want to have something TO my meat/fish or chicken.

I choose those greens wich is the lovest amount of carbs and I eat maximum 100 grams of it.
That what happens if you try to zero your carbs, or almost - maxium energy and maximum weightloss!
