It's going great. We've both lost about 11 or 12 lbs. Weight loss has slowed a bit, but I'm at my initial weight target and only want to drop another 6-8 lbs to get to my revised goal. I'll probably start playing around with the macros at that point to see how it affects me.

I think Keto is more sustainable than I had originally figured, but I still may switch to a more paleo/clean eating program after a couple of months.

I understand the feeling guilty aspect. Keto could solve obesity in America if people would try it!!

Well, I just hit the 4 week mark on the Keto diet. The scale this morning showed I am down 30 lbs. since I started. I have found this diet (lifestyle), relatively easy. Now, don't get me wrong, the temptations such as when we go out because we are always out watching our kids compete or on Fridays during lent. But since I started this diet, I have felt so, so much better. I know the pounds will start to come off slower than it did this first month, but I couldn't be more excited about continuing this and seeing where it takes me.

Right now it has been without exercise. I am about to kick start that aspect of it soon though. I just wanted to start the diet without exercise first. My biggest issue to this point has been not getting close to my counts.

I am supposed to...

2485 calories
Carbs - 31g
Protein - 154g
Fat - 194g

I drink my Bullet Proof Coffee in the morning, and then don't eat until supper. I do this because I really am not hungry. Because of this, when I check my ketosis status, it is not strong. But since the weight has been coming off, I really haven't worried about it to this point. I am sure, soon, I will need to start making sure my macros are where they need to be.

Well, I tried the body shock approach to plateau busting on Saturday. Donít know if it worked because Iím not touching a scale until my physical this Friday. Rucked 5.35 yesterday with 50lbs and my hands looked like cartoon balloon hands or something. (Saturday Italian meal)
Anyway, wife has now joined me on the diet so I expect great things. She will research recipes and cook up all kinds of new dishes

Having your wife on board will be a huge help. I will probably lose my wife within the next couple of weeks since she didnít need to lose that much, but hope fully sheíll still cook for me.

Awesome!

I started incorporating a little exercise today. I'm easing into it with a little walking, rowing, pull-ups and squats, but will slowly intensify.

Have you recalculated your macros since you dropped the initial 30lbs? Your calorie needs will fall as you lose weight. The lighter you are, the less calories you burn in a day if your activity level stays the same. A lot of the "plateaus" people hit is just from them eating the same amount of calories after losing a significant amount of weight. The only macro I would worry about getting close to every day is proteins.
As few carbs as possible.
As close as possible to your protein macro.
Fat to satiety.

I started on this diet January 1 and lost about 15 lbs. I just got back from my doctor appointment for blood work, and my cholesterol numbers were off the chart (in a bad way). The Doc started me on Lipitor right away.

I am done with Keto for a while. Watch out on this diet if you have cholesterol issues. I am going back to just eating less and lower calorie food.

Maybe it has to do with length of time on keto. I know once I was on keto for 6 months or so my cholesterol levels plummeted. I'll do whatever necessary with diet before I get back on a cholesterol med...too many bad side effects including the heat stroke I had while on them accompanied by a list of serious ailments.

I have always wondered about this and you are the first to have numbers go up. Others have dropped their meds.

I read this often and am amazed at some of the weight loss. I was wondering about blood numbers on this eating style. I guess I'm kinda on this as I don't eat any sugar or processed wheat- I do eat whole oats in the morning though. I also eat some brown rice for lunch sometimes. I am not trying to loose any weight but just a few pounds of body fat and considering trying it for 30 days.

Well, I had another successful week with another five pounds lost. I now have been doing this for five weeks now and am down a total of 35 lbs. This really has been one of the easiest "diets" I have ever done. Now, yesterday the sweet potatoes, rolls, and cobbler sure did look and smell good, but I restrained. I wish I could continue to lose five pounds per week, but I know that really isn't possible. I have nine weeks before our cruise, and I am going to be sure to do whatever necessary to drop as much weight as possible before then.

After 9 months of keto I finally got fed up with my wifeís nagging and went in for a physical on Good Friday. Got labs back today and all my numbers were within normal range, even on the good side of normal! Only deficiency was vitamin D so they said start with 1000IU with meal once a day.

Yes, like so many people just not a believer in keto. Also worried because my bro just had a stint put in and heart disease runs in my family (heís 7 years older). At 44 Iím gonna see a cardiologist for the first time just as a precaution. No symptoms other than my HR has been higher than normal when jogging at the same pace lately. Recovery is faster than ever though and my resting HR has been creeping lower the last few months.

Sounds like things are heading in the right direction for ya. Age and genetics play a big difference. I'll be 45 in 12 days. I see my MD twice a year for blood work. I'm hoping to lose enough weight to get off the blood pressure medication. Hypertension and cholesterol are big in my family. **** genetics.

Hit 257.6 on the scale this am. Total loss is 30 lbs since 1/2/18. Started off at 288. Not super duper strict, I do find myself enjoying life every other weekend with some beer, margarita's and chips and salsa. Only 2 drinks max. I've also incorporated IF in to my regiment.

Congrats Ice! I finally hit 41lbs today then I had a business dinner tonight and everybody wanted to stop for beer after. Sipping my dieter tea now which will mean a brutal 4am wake up. Gearing up for 6 days on the road and trying to plan how I will stay on track.

I work quite a bit this time of year and had trouble with traveling and trying to interact with customers. Hope you have some success it seems to work wonders for some!

You should be over the hump, or at least close, by now.

My wife and I started Keto on 2/26. I drank a LOT of water (with salt) and pickle juice and anything else I could find to replace electrolytes and avoid keto flu. I never experienced any really adverse effects during the transition.

I didn't check for the first few weeks (but I did lose weight and felt great) but I believe I have maintained ketosis every day since. I was around 208 when I started (already down from an all time high of 218 in September) and my main priority was to break below 200. I accomplished that within a week. The results have been a little slower since, but this morning I hit my ultimate target weight of 190.

The diet has been easy to maintain, with very little temptation to eat carbs. We've eaten out at various restaurants and fast food and we've always been able to find something to eat and enjoy. I was a guest of Oz_Ag this past weekend for a turkey hunt and his wife had prepared a casserole that contained egg noodles. It would have been terribly impolite to not eat it, of course. My ketone level (according to the pee stick) was slightly below moderate yesterday, but was right back up this morning.

I'm going to continue Keto through the end of this month (I plan to break it at Michaela's engagement party on the 28th!) at which time I will check blood work against my results from last October. I can't decide if I want to continue Keto after that or just transition to a clean eating "maintenance" diet.

Ok men, I'm going back in, for real this time. Spent 5 months in last year and have been just off my game this year. Wife is already in so she is very happy that I'm going to be cooking Keto. I only came up to 189 so I'm not far off, 178 is my keto weight. Fasting now to kick start. Pray for me!!

I need to go this route in my office. I know of two guys that are surveyors/engineers that have severe back problems from years of sitting poorly in an office chair drawing plats, etc.

I started Keto on Feb. 26, so I have been on it now for seven weeks. The scale this morning showed that I have lost a little over 40 lbs. Truthfully, from the beginning it was not too hard to do. Knock on wood, but I have never felt bad during the process. When you cut out sugars and carbs, at least for me, your hunger really isn't there.

We have seven weeks before we take our cruise. I am only half way to where I want to be, but if I can lose another 15 lbs over the next seven weeks, I will be very happy.

Congrats brother, that is awesome. Keep up the good work!!
Unfortunately, I feel it right now, feel like I must have slipped in after my workout today. Bla with a head ache, will test when I get home. Pumping the electrolytes through my system to help. Last time, once I was in, no symptoms when I would slip out and right back in.
