I think I eat too much protein so I am trying to work out an eating plan that is HF/LP/LC. First off-(I know I will get beat up here) - I don't like the taste of red meat --even fatty kind. So most of my protein comes from eggs, raw kefir and pork bacon. But I think I am starting to become allergic to eggs. Every time I eat them -- i get sooo tired with in 1 hour. I have tried upping my Vit C -- doesn't help. Can someone give me some good examples of HF/LP/LC meals (not just foods). Sometimes I get in a food rut and just want to eat salad with lots and lots of coconut oil.

Be sure that you eat enough protein, in whatever form. Dr. Steve Phinney recommends 1.5 g protein/kg of reference/ideal weight.

Figuring out your reference/ideal weight the key, and should be based on the ideal amount of body fat for your gender, age, and height. Look at the Jackson-Pollack charts, figure out your current BF%, and then use the formula on this page to determine your reference/ideal weight.

I am also allergic to eggs and I have exactly the same reaction! You know what works really well for me? Duck and goose fat! But they are crazy expensive here. So if you have a ton of money, try it - I add it to bone broth and absolutely love the taste. No side effects.
