    Thank yooooooou. I put mine in a glass bowl and empty a tray of ice cubes on top and put to the back of the refrigerator. So two weeks tops. Coooool beans. So you both are saying eating them mostly as my only food for a few days or so is ok. Currently when I eat any other food including other seafood it doesn't feel good, only oysters and seaweed is sounding good. Maybe when I add seaweed with the oysters it will hold me for a while.

    I always look forward to Inger's posts and open my ears up extra for her advice.

    All I'm saying is that my wife has noticed great results (body shape, metabolism, and sleep)by eating oysters pretty much every dinner and shrimp or fish every lunch for the last year.

    Same here. Have seen changes too. I have lost 11 pounds since adding mostly seafood. About 2 months now

    I hear you guys, but I also feel like, if Jack bothered to write it in his published book then I am going to pay attention to it as I can. I'm not stressing about it- just being mindful of what he's saying and what I'm doing. I don't need/want to lose any more weight. I've noticed the difference in body composition for sure and did lose inflammatory weight, but I also feel like I actually need some fat on my body in places other than my gut so I do really want to make sure I'm putting enough nutrients in my body. With 3 kids I can get lazy about taking care of me and it takes constant effort to focus on my needs first. So I'm trying to give myself a template because that is comfortable for me and ensures that I actually put my needs at the forefront. I'm a very routine person. And right now my routine is to slap some avocado on whatever protein I'm eating and snarf some coconut oil :/ He makes it clear that it's not healthy to be ketogenic year-round for most people and that you should definitely incorporate seasonal veggies (carbs) is summer.

    I forget you have kids. As for how you described weight distribution, me too, but wanting gut to go down too. I think your right about inflammation weight. Funny I am doing the same as you with the avacado too. I also add sauerkraut, sauted onions, mushrooms and when I feel like green veggies broccoli, spinach, brussel sprouts.

    My above comment I thought I was posting on that other thread! Ah well. You get where I'm at. I could definitely up my game when it comes to the veggies. I haven't started any fermenting, but that would be a great addition.

    Great stuff here. Far and away one of my favorite foods.

    I've always loved oysters, even before I had any particular thoughts about whether they were good for you or not. I only eat them raw. Although, years ago I did have some steamed. Much better raw. I usually swallow them whole but occasionally chew a little bit. I love the taste of oysters. I also usually squeeze some lemon on SOME of them, but I wonder if the lemon juice rough on tooth enamel or not.

    Billybats, I do not stay full on oysters either, I normally eat something else too when I have them. Or use them as a small meal between breakfast and dinner, about 12-15 oysters. I had about 30 oysters yesterday for dinner but I still had appetite after that, crazy! So I had a big steak on top of them ;).

    At work days (I leave for work around 10:45 AM and come home at 9-10 PM) I normally eat a big breakfast around 8 AM, and then I have 10-15 oysters before leaving for work. Of course I eat a big meal at work too ;) I think I eat a lot - but might be because my work it physically pretty demanding, working as a waitress on my feet all day, we do not have breaks either, and more that not there are so much work we just stay on our feet and eat our food as fast as we can...and run back to take care of the guests ;)

    I am off work today, it is awesome sunny weather, and I am leaving for the oyster beach staying there all day and picking me a 100 oysters or so, because I had my last ones yesterday :)
