    Ah - I use the NUT package from

    It's a free, open source package. Although I do like MyLocker, I prefer NUT for the ease of adding recipes and labelled foods (Like the mackerel)

    I'm not sure if you can add them to MyLocker, I'll have a look!

    Mat, I'm interested that your diary contains a mixture of items easily found in the MyLocker database, eg "50 gm or 1.8 oz TOMATOES,RED,RIPE,RAW,YEAR ROUND AVERAGE " and items such as "88 gm or 3.1 oz MACKEREL,CANNED,TESCO ", which aren't. Are you harvesting the data from the tin in the latter case? If so is it possible to put this information in the MyLocker diary to get the complete picture?

    You can get canned mackerel easily enough...supermarkets, Trader Joe's etc.
    My dad used to have it all the time...I remember this brand.

    Let me know how you get on!

    The mayo is home-made and takes 2 minutes!

    Ok, so that's a lot like my lunch, without the mayo. I've not explored much of P2 beyond heavy cream. If I could behave myself for a moment, I could try more, LOL.

    Next time I'm at the store I'll look for the mackerel. Might be nice to try something different.

    Taste-wise, it is not like tuna. I get this:

    It is deliciously moist and very tasty!

    This is one of my lunches with mackerel:

    Good stuff, Mat. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Do you know if mackerel is at all like canned tuna? I don't even know if I can get canned mack here - but I've been doing tuna for lunches (with raw veggies on mixed greens, so, a salad) lately and find it so satisfying. Definitely holds me until dinner.

    Thanks RM!

    I'm pretty pleased with how it has gone!

    Well done Mat. Most LCHF people would be happy with those macros.

    It is my target for protein based on my bodymass - Not standard.

    I have been a lot more phase 3 recently before this experiment - I realised that I needed to 'get back on it with seriousness'

    I don't find eating like this difficult in the slightest and I feeling great after almost a week on this.

    It is exactly like ZoŽ says - The extreme LCHF people are eating 'like us' and then chowing down on extra butter - there's no need! You can get decent macros by eating real food. I'm sure that if I really focussed on the fattier cuts of meat (I've had some tuna) then my macros would be firmly in the LCHF rangs as opposed to dabbling around the edge of it from slightly too much protein.

    I'm planning on doing a full write-up tomorrow!

    Thank you so much for the interest in this! It has helped me with doing this blog!

    Mat you have demonstrated that you can achieve macro ratios of 23:7:70 P:C:F without going to the extreme of adding random butter or other addional fats to your meals on top of the regular serving of mayo or olive oil for dressing or cooking.

    Does this macro ratio reflect your regular dietary regime? If it is a change from what you normally do, how are you feeling after a week on those macro ratios?

    Tell me about it!

    Not much gets past our HC. Fine attention to detail!!

    Ah - I noticed that after I had posted this and updated the totals but not the menu!

    Good spot!!

    I'm guessing that you enter as raw food but you are in fact cooking the liver!
  18. Mat's Avatar
    That is a possibility!
