    i TOOK THE CHALLENGE; Lost a notch in my belt and probably 6 lbs in less than 1 week and was not trying to lose weight nor inches. I was trying to lower a1c as am type 2 Diabetic. I quit taking my metformin and a1c is better than when taking metformin.

    I love potatoes, bread, rice , sweets of all kinds and it is still hard denying my self such things. I tried making bunns but was not successful with recipe. :-( I miss eating a hamburger on roll. I will try making hamburger rolls again and hopefully have more success.

    Congrats Joe on losing 6 pounds, I just signed up as of yesterday, still trying to learn everything and budget plan to buy healthier foods. I myself am diabetic also and have high A1c, just got out of the hospital aug. 2 was in for 2 weeks.

    Good Luck in your journey, will be praying for positive vibes and encouragement to come your way. I've been telling myself that I CAN do this for ME and my SON!

    congrats... i am still learning as well and am wondering.... why are all the receipes nutrition labels in % and not actual #'s so that we can calculate?

    I too would love the site more if they had the better nutrition labels numbers and not percentage. Which is the number one reason I am not a paid subscriber. Soon as they change that I will be.

    I love this dish, so simple and easy. I use sriracha for chili paste and put a lot more than 1 tsp - the butter mellows it out anyway. I substituted cabbage for one of the bell peppers this time and it was still good. make sure to get a pork shoulder with some nice fat. sooo good.

    I think that your wish has been granted. For example, the recipes now state the number of grams (not just the percentage), e.g. "Carbohydrates: 7 g."

    You can use less butter if you prefer, just remember that it will adjust the macros and you'll have less fat.

    question: 300g of meat raw or coocked?

    Standard recipe convention is to list meat at pre-cooked weight.

    This was kind of gross unfortunately. The sauce is really just melted butter. I won't be making this again.

    I find that too much butter makes me feel sick - if I substitute for oil what is the ratio? I struggle with a lot of these recipes with how much olive oil/coconut oil instead of butter for some? Could you advise? Thanks

    There is not a set ratio for substituting. You can start with the same amount of coconut oil that it calls for in butter and add more or drain as needed for whichever particular dish you are making.

    If I substitute the pork with ribeye do I need less butter? Also can I substitute the pork with chicken breast? I have some chicken I want to cook before it goes bad.( not a fan of thighs)

    Pork shoulder can be a relatively fatty cut of pork so you may not need to adjust the amount of butter. You can always start with half and then add more as needed. Chicken breast makes a good substitute for pork chops, but should work well in this dish also.

    I’ll leave the same amount of butter for rib eye. If I use chicken breast so I need to increase the butter/fat usage?

    I would start with the called for amount and then add some as needed. It can be a tricky balance because the fat/protein ratio is important but at the same time adding too much butter could result in a mess.
