    PSMF Refeeds - How much do you cheat on them?

    For my refeeds I add tubers such as yuca and sweet potatoes. I eat green plantains, maybe a cup of rice, beans, and try to keep the foods as natural as possible but I did indulge in corn chips last weekend. I still track everything and I’m losing about a pound a week, I’m only 4 pounds away from...

    Keeping fats low on Psmf

    See if you can find dry curd cottage cheese. It's pretty much pure protein. Some people find it alarming, as it's quite different from what comes to mind when one thinks "cottage cheese," but it's nice on salads and rolled into egg white omelettes.

    I supplement magnesium and potassium to avoid cramping. If I'm going to be doing something where I'm going to be sweating a lot, I take salt pills that I got from Amazon. You can also put salt in some water (Himalayan, Celtic sea, etc.)

    Artificial sweetner

    Not Splenda in powdered form. That's mostly sugar. Liquid Splenda (aka sucralose) doesn't generally affect blood sugar.

    low fat cottage cheese

    I used to eat the full-fat cc but now I'm reducing dietary fat, I'm concerned the low-fat cc contains sugar from the skimmed milk.

    Just finished day 4

    Coffee, turkey bacon, egg white omelet, spinach....maybe hot sauce, cayenne, or salsa to change it up a bit. Bone broth is good if you don't want to make a meal. Egg white "muffins" are good for grab and go.
