In response to a confession. I've been eating low carb for the last couple months, but had folks in a Facebook group tell me Keto is better. I'm sure eating less than 20 carbs a day works for some people (one slice of bread is 16 carbs!), it was impossible for me. I don't think it's a healthy way to eat either. Low carb is hard enough for me.

I know someone who's tried to go off keto, but always goes back to it because the weight comes back on so quickly, even though he weans himself off it really slowly. He's been on and off for about three years. I can't help but wonder about the long term effect that's going to have in his body. I don't say anything, of course. It's his body, he can do what he wants to it. It just doesn't seem healthy.

In response to a confession. I started mixing CeraVe into my rose hip oil. I use it twice a day, along with vitamin C serum once a week, and I've seen a huge difference in the texture and brightness of my skin. The rose hip oil alone was good, but something about the CeraVe just kicked it up a notch. It's good stuff!

Learned a girlfriend got married spur of the moment and I shared about my breakup. I'm so happy for my friend, though, and glad she suddenly shared her news first or she might have held back hearing mine.

Stand up Paddle Yoga class with my girlfriends, Thai lunch, and leisurely stroll with ice cream. Best birthday ever! Excited for what's to come during my summer of transformation. Building a new life for myself!

I started using CeraVe on my eyes to help my dark circles. It's been only 2 weeks and IT'S WORKING!! It's probably the first time I've ever started using something where I see results this quickly.

I went to see a highly rated nutritionist during the diabetes scare. She was very thorough, hundreds of questions, did some tests. Met for 3 hours. At the end, she tried to sell me her smoothie cleanse kit, and her booklet stated that if I was hungry, I could have unlimited amounts of brown rice and quinoa. I hightailed it out of there, and was left to conclude that her high ratings were all from absolutely clueless people.

Keto was never meant to be used to help treat diabetes. It's supposed to be used by epileptics or people with autism to help their brains sort of metabolize fuels slightly differently. The way it works goes totally against the way your body is supposed to run, so it's very hard on your body. That's why it's so hard to sustain. Your body naturally craves carbs very much. In fact, going into keto mode can actually make diabetes worse if you ever do go back to eating carbs because it makes your cells insulin resistant. The problem with the standard American diet that causes so many health problems is the amount of refined carbs. If you replace the refined carbs with complex carbs, you can get a lot of the benefits of low carb without totally giving them up. I lost weight and KEPT IT OFF for almost 20 years by focusing on eating mostly veggies and fruits and whole grains, some lean proteins and fats, and about 10-20% fun stuff like candy, booze, etc.

Jumping into the diet fray. I brought up keto a couple months ago. Diabetes scare scared the f out of me. Jumped on DHs keto diet. No carbs kills me because all my teeth are sweet teeth. Lost 7 lbs week 1 (started at 135) and bottomed out at 15 lbs lost. Found out I don’t actually have diabetes. Started eating carbs again. Gained 3 lbs back. But I will say it worked, didn’t it? I only did keto for a month.

I've lost almost 100 lbs just by calorie counting on MFP. It also initially motivated me to walk a few miles a day to earn an extra couple hundred calories. For me it was sustainable because I can stick to it forever, eating whatever food group I want to, just in moderation. And once I got used to logging, I could do it in just a couple minutes by saving meals and regular foods. Kudos to you ladies who can do low carb, low fat, etc.. I could never give up my bread, pasta, ice cream, etc and stick to it!
