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!

In response to a confession. To get back on track after cheating on keto I give myself a day or two to eat high-fat foods without thinking about the amount I eat. That helps me get past the carb cravings. Eating carbs spikes your insulin, and when your insulin crashes afterwards, you crave more carbs. Getting past that is much easier when I just eat as much cheese as I want, and my appetite stabilizes quickly. The diet is 75% of calories from fat, 20% from protein, and 5% from carbs. I used the carb manager to track things at first, but now I don't even need that. I went out to dinner and had a bacon avocado cheeseburger with no bun or fries, on top of a salad with blue cheese dressing, and woke up a pound lighter the next day. I usually gain a pound any time I eat out. It's amazing. Again, I understand if you think it's crazy and I am fine with that.

In response to a confession. I'm doing keto, but I don't talk about it IRL because there is nothing more boring than listening to someone talk about what they aren't eating and why. I have lost five pounds in the last five days without feeling deprived or hungry. I still eat vegetables, but yes, I am skipping fruit and even beans. I realize this is hard to stick to and maintain, because in real life you have limited choices when traveling, eating out, having dinner at a friend's house, or celebrating holidays Yes, I love bagels, but I might love wearing a smaller pants size a little more. I realized that not liking my weight really affects my mood all day, so I'm doing something about it. This seems more sustainable than counting calories. When I did that I was starving all the time. But no, I have not said one word about keto to anyone I know because they will think it is crazy!

In response to a confession. Yeah, that's kind of how my sister is with fruits and vegetables. I just don't get it. No carbs ever again?! Not even beans! Nope.

In response to a confession. keto, low carb, and paleo, people can be extremely dogmatic and puritanical with their diets. in my dieting days i learned to stay away from them for advice and just focus on portion sizes.

In response to a confession. Keto is FAR more extreme, IMO. One lady told me that eating Keto is for people who plan to never eat carbs again. The people in the FB group were mostly Keto because I got berated for eating a tomato from my garden. It has 2 carbs that should be saved for something else. I say PFFFFFT'

Is low carb the same as keto, or is keto more, idk, extreme? My sister lost about 50 pounds doing a keto diet, but it seems damn near impossible to sustain. Every time she even remotely strays from it, she gains weight. Seems like a frustrating waste of time.

The low carb thing is stressing me out! I've eaten low carb for a month, and commented in a Facebook group I'm in that I hadn't lost the weight I thought I should. I got 322 cmoments telling me what I'm doing wrong. Of course I also had six people send me private messages about TruVision, Plexus, two things I've never heard of, and one wants to sell me CBD oil. I left the group and am taking a break from what appears to be a radical bunch of people.

I wanted to like the "Africa" remake by Weezer but I just don't. It's not any different-sounding than the original by Toto. If you're going to do a cover song, put a cool spin on it.
