Fat bombs? What do you what to know specifically?

Are you MO? Fbombs in my opinion (and Dr. Jason Fung and Dr. Andreas Einfeldt) are only for people who eat a low carb lifestyle and who are at peak weight (no weight to lose). Otherwise, you do not need exogenous fat for either satiety or health. We strap and carry our own Fbombs as MO and O/OW peeps.

Are you in weight loss mode or maintenance?

I only started having fat bombs when I got into maintenance, and for the purpose of reaching a higher calorie intake without the carbs.

With that said, there are a couple of sites that I like that have some good fat bomb recipes/info:

P.S. costco sells a coconut-dark chocolate fat bomb snack that is a staple in my pantry.

P.P.S. Chicharron will also fit the bill (plus its high in Protein as well..and CRUNCHY!)

I eat them occasionally when I'm having one of those days when I'm feeling like an eating machine (that, or a bowl of bran), but I'm in maintenance and I don't have them very often. I didn't have them while losing weight since they're pretty calorie dense. I know that some Keto people eat them - but i don't know their circumstances. I would imagine they'd have to factor them into their overall calories or they'd start gaining weight.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!
