Still looking for a Keto friendly tortilla. Here is a recipe I stumbled on to. Has anybody used the recipe and if so how did the torts turn out??

Here is a pic, they look good. Link for the recipe is listed below.

Will be trying the recipe myself and will report on my results later. Keto on brothers and sisters!!

I found some low carb tortillas at Sprout's. They only have 6g per tortilla.

They tasted like a normal tortilla. Spout's Farmers Market is a store in Dallas and some surrounding areas.

there is also a subreddit or two for ketogenic eating, if you don't mind the whole internet hipster millenial thing.

We buy ours at HEB...they are Carb-sense. They have the Mission brand and HEB has a house brand. Either are 3g net carbs. Even my kids have gotten to where they prefer these over the fresh butter flavored ones made on site.

Made steak last night. 15 mins at 400 in a cast iron skillet in the oven, then 30 secs in the skillet for a nice sear. Garlic butter spread to finish things out.

Yea, all we use is the Carb-Sense tortillas. Went to the Mexican food restaurant last night. Got two grilled chicken breast covered in bell peppers, Mushrooms, and cheese. Of course avocados on the side. Had my wife smuggle in a couple of the 3 carb tortillas.

Awesome and thanks for sharing. That is roughly my starting point and target. I知 226 today after struggling for most of 2018 but set the whiskey aside and stayed strict the last couple of days. I can feel it kicking in again and know I知 about to drop down another pant size quickly. Been on mostly since July 18, 2017.

Interesting progress for me;

As I previously mentioned, I started eating a keto/paleo diet in mid-January and was struggling to see much progress in terms of the scale. I was feeling better, seemed to be losing some inches (or at least bloating), but wasn't seeing much on pee sticks that had me confident and the scale wasn't dropping much at all.

Well last weekend, my wife and I made a trip up to Arkansas to visit her sister. I wasn't feeling very good the first evening and ended up hugging the toilet a couple times that night. I chalked it up to food poisoning from a chick-fil-a salad I had grabbed on the drive (I know, food poisoning from anything chick fil a seems blasphemous). I was down for the count the next day, didn't even wake up until after 5pm.

Was a little off the rest of the weekend, but was able to eat regularly - though my appetite wasn't all that strong. Mainly focused on staying hydrated. Was worried I really cost myself progress at this point and the past month was for not.

Well since we got back on Sunday, I'm down about 7 lbs. Feeling good which is surprising as I'm working 15 hour+ days, and happy to see the numbers coming down. Really want to keep it going. All in all, from the heaviest I've ever been in January, I'm down ~17 lbs. Probably 8 or 9 of those coming after starting Keto.

Thought it was interesting. I don't think it was "keto flu" since I haven't heard of it actually making people sick...but I guess you never know. It may have just jump started something. Gonna be doing everything I can to keep the train rolling.

Anyone here have experience with exogenous ketones? I know it's just putting outside ketones in front of your own but when I cheat a little, it can take me several days to get back to pink pee sticks which is a problem because I also feel crappy until I'm back full bore. Wondering if the ketone drinks might help with all that.

I'm going to buy some when Vitamin Shoppe gets them back in stock. I'm on the border with them. They are expensive but what the Hades.

Thomas D. had a good video explanation of them I saw on FB the other night. Definitely not enough conclusive studies done yet and he said "may" induce a kickstart type effect and "may" help with keto flu which is why I'm hoping somebody here has some real experience. Yes, they are expensive and this whole way of eating is expensive (but worth it).

He did say it's definitely instant brain energy.

I'm with you on the cheat day and help kick start ketosis up again. Instant brain food, well, IDK about that. Fuel for the brain I see but if he is saying it will increase your cognitive ability then, that I'm crying shenanigans. I took 1 dose 2 days ago, given to me by a friend, and I didn't really notice any improvement. Yes, my pee stick was a little darker but that's to be expected when you take in exogenous ketones. At what point is their a placebo effect to taking supplements? If you expect it to work, then the power of suggestion can be strong.

Goodybeats and Jason Whitrock did pre and post finger stick ketone levels and it did almost double, if not actually doubled, their ketone levels. But, they are both already fat adapted.
