Probably wants a ketosis diet, or to enhance autophagy.

Also heavy cream and very dark chocolate. Could even go together! The ketogenic diet for epileptics typically has them drinking 1/4 cup of cream 5-6 times per day.

It would help to specify which fats and oils. Experienced paleos know, but Khloe is just getting started. Crisco is a fat, safflower is an oil, but both are VERY undesirable.

Oh and avocado, which is a bit higher in carbs than the above items, and bacon and bacon fat. Cream cheese if you do dairy.

You asked about "foods" - I'm going to answer slightly differently than has been done and assume you mean dishes. Bacon-wrapped chicken thighs (though that's not low protein). Eggs benedict without the bread (homemade raw Hollandaise is one of life's great pleasures!). Macadamia nuts. Avocados, plain or as guac. Cheese, if you eat dairy. Coconut milk (add an egg, some berries and almond butter and make a smoothie). Bone broth. Coconut cream, cacao and stevia bonbons. Animal skin fried to a crisp: chicken, salmon, Chicharr??n (pork rinds).

Why low rather than moderate or adequate protein? That would be a lot better for weight loss without muscle loss. From your earlier description of activity level I'd estimate you should ideally around 1gm/pound of lean body mass.

butter, ghee, coconut oil, olive oil, macadamia nut oil, fatty meats like short ribs or 70% ground beef, pork butt, chicken thighs (ideally all grass fed or pastured), fatty fish like salmon or sardines, whole pastured eggs, avocado, macadamia nuts

~ Fry non starchy veggies in fat eg. chard/silverbeet fried in tallow, coconut oil or butter. ~ Mushrooms also soak up fat well - fry together with chopped up bacon and it will sponge up all the lard. ~ Puree steamed cauliflower with plenty of tallow/butter to make a creamy consistency. ~ Egg yolks fried in butter, tallow or lard ~ homemade mayonnaise on everything. Dip raw veggies in, or take a little salmon and mix with tons of mayo, celery, shredded carrot for a salad type thingey.

In general, non starchy veggies are great vehicles for fat if you want to keep protein lower.

Bone marrow, butter, ghee, coconut oil and coconut butter are some of my favorite high fat, low carb/low protein staples.

I have stage 3 CKD and have followed a moderate protein low carb diet for years. It does coincide with the rise in my creatinine levels. SO I don't know. I also have an auto immune disease that could be responsible. I do ride an ex bike, but so far that is the best I can do so I can't blame it on weight lifting. I stopped eating protein for a bit on a kidney diet and my values did improve which makes me feel like I haven't caused damage. Can meat eating in general cause a high creatinine without being damage? I have lost 55 pounds and don't really want to gain it back, but I also don't want to destroy my kidneys. I read that if you have healthy kidneys moderate protein shouldn't be a problem. But I went from .9 to 1.1 and then right up to 1.3-1.4 where I have been for 13 years now. Stable yes, but with age it is supposed to get lower (I am 62 and female and white colored skin tone) and this means my eGFR keeps getting worse even with the same creatinine. I am going to see a kidney doc soon. But was curious what people in the trenches are seeing. I get it that you aren't kidney docs. So I am also very interested in low protein low carb, but not for weight loss just for not gaining back while preserving my kidney function. Thanks Annie

Annie I suffer from kidney issues too..I found that high fat low carb low protein is best. Lots of alvocados, eggs, nut butters, coconut products of all types...also vitamin d. Should fix you right up. :)
