I have had a few private messages, and I thought I would just answer it here and let others who have or are doing Keto chime in with help too. I am not the guru, but I have watched a whole lot of videos, read books and live Keto in our home. first of all! I am 54, and was 247 pounds, I had a very truthful and upfront doctor. I knew I had to lose, and am DRIVEN to lose this and get healthy. I can say, I did this and this, but unless you are focused and know it HAS to happen, you will fall away and gain any weight and more back. I had to plan. I did ONE week at a time. Started with meals and snacks. thirty carb limit. As I went along, that was too much food. When you eat the fats correct, you feel full. I now eat under 10 carbs a day. I do not miss them! I NEVER FELT full before. I could eat a whole cake and then a chocolate bar, like it was nothing. I go to bed not hungry! here are some very low carb recipes I had a lot of egg omelets to start. I now make this one cup of cabbage and one egg, fry in bacon grease. It is like hashbrowns, so good. I put different things on it. Avocado, bacon, cheese etc...it is good good good. I am addicted to Rotisserie Chicken from the grocery store. The skin is a good fat, and the chicken so moist. I make a lot of chicken, fish and some steak. I am staying away from red meats, but my hubby CAN NOT! lol We cook up 3 pounds of bacon a week, and I will have 2 pieces of that for a snack often. I add it to everything. The grease, the best! I also made wraps with this lavash bread (it is available at walmart $3) and I would grill it with meat and vegi and cheese inside! my splurge are these atkin bars with coffee after my nap. Keto flu is real. It sucks. I knew it was coming and started magnesium and potassium supplements from the get go. It made a big difference. I was so sluggish, I devoured RockStar energy drinks for a week (2 a day) ugh. I no longer drink soda at all!! zilch, none. this was a hard break, but now when I drink it, it makes my mouth feel gross. I still do Rock Stars 3 times a week! Water! It is a must, to flush your system. Eventually you will stop going potty every 15 minutes. I even make it thru the night now. Before Keto, I was up 2 or 3 times. Listen to your body. Start moving. I don't care if it is 10 minute walk some where. Start moving. YOU will feel better.
