Well Our meals are pretty much a meat with a starch and a veggie...sometimes I make pasta meals with gf pasta..I use Canola or Olive oils...We eat a lot of eggs...I use coconut Milk for cooking or baking...I dont drink it though...I like Rice milk on my cereal...

Should I be eating something with more fats?

I would think increasing the fats would help also. Especially if you were used to high fat foods or sweets and then stopped them. We also use rice milk for cereal/dunking cookies, etc and then use almond milk for drinking or cooking. Coconut milk is just as good. I would suggest trying coconut oil in place of the olive and canola oils. It's high fat and might help. I'd also consider adding more nuts and things like peanut butter as a possibility. We use a lot of rice and potatoes and they're pretty filling.

Hmmm.. Idk about the cholesterol and coconut oil. Actually I don't really know anything about cholesterol anyways so I'm not help there. We started making the switch when dd needed to be tested for Celiac. Now that they said she isn't I'm at a loss and so distracted by everything else that I've let it slip although we do eat mostly GF and all DF since she is lactose intolerance. The coconut oil became big for us during that time since I was also looking into other specialty diets like paleo, FODMAPS, and more that may/may not help her. I hope someone can come along and help with the cholesterol issue.

Actually it looks like it is good for you. Here are a few links I found:

I have done several whole 30 challenges (basically no grains, dairy, sugar for 30 days) and the one thing that helped me was to make sure every meal had a fat and a protein. If I skimped on the protein and only ate fruit for breakfast I would be STARVING by lunch. If I had some apples and almond or cashew butter with some coconut flakes sprinkled on top, I would be hungry out of habit, but able to hold off until lunch. Also, make sure you are drinking enough water! If you check out the whole 30 meal planning template it gives you a good idea of how much to include at every meal! Lots of great info on that site. HTH!

Regarding cholesterol and fat intake... keep in mind that I am not a nutritionist or a doctor, but am basing this on articles I've read, my own experiences, the experiences of friends, etc.

I've noticed that high refined starch/sugar seems to affect blood cholesterol levels a lot more than saturated fat intake. Olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado are things that I consider good sources of fats that are gfdf. Of course, go with what your medical provider recommends.

Also, fat is more satisfying than starch or sugar (at least for me), so I find I actually need less food to satisfy me than I do with a higher starch meal/snack. For example, almond butter with celery sticks or with apple slices works as a better snack for me than the same amount of almond butter with crackers. Try putting less starch on your plate and more veggies and see if that helps with the "always hungries". It's sometimes harder to pull this off, depending on budgets, but a side dish can be made of less expensive veggies... coleslaw or sauteed cabbage or steamed carrots or sliced celery & carrot stir fried together, etc.

We eat a high fat diet. Most calories from fat. Less than 100g carbs per day & 70-100g protein. Have been almost 10 years. Super health.

What you may experiencing there is "induction flu" and the best way to get through it is to stop surfing along your carb limits and get it over with by cutting back (and coping with withdrawal) once and for all. It took me 18 months, I was pre-diabetic, it was agonizing at times, but I never look back, my health & mood are super now!

A low-carb forum will help you with support & tips. Good luck

These two websites may have some recipes that help you:

http://www.elanaspantry.com

http://brittanyangell.com/


I avoid canola oil, it's not good for you. Heating olive oil can make it unhealthy. I don't buy it since I rarely use oil unless I'm cooking with it. I use avocado or macadamia oil. Sometimes coconut oil (I don't like the taste it adds to most recipes.) Refined coconut oil doesn't have the taste, but most refined coconut oil uses hexane which I avoid. I do buy this coconut oil when I have a need for the firmness coconut oil can give but I don't want the taste:

Here's info on which oils are healthy and which aren't.

The intense hunger is transitional - you're switching from being a "sugar burner" to a "fat burner" and as you're making the adjustment it can make your body think it doesn't have anything to burn bc it's still in carb mode. It passes as you adjust to efficiently utilizing fat for energy. It's sometimes called the low-carb flu.

I always had high cholesterol, horrible ratios, and high lipids. I took out gluten/dairy/soy and started high fat diet (lots of bacon, coconut oil, avocado, etc.) and my cholesterol went down to perfect levels/ratios. Just sayin' as anecdotal evidence. Personally I think high cholesterol is from bad carbs. We're gluten/dairy/soy free here (6 or 7 years). I have a recipe blog if you need ideas, but we use fattier cuts of meat than normal.
