I even did the intermittent fast on Thursday. I did a 20 hour span and did not feel hungry at all. From yesterday to today I did a 30 hour fast and had a 2 mile run this morning and a 20 mile bike ride this afternoon. No noticeable lack of energy at all on either the run or bike ride. I will be doing the fast thing at least once every two weeks....
I've been on Keto since July 4th. Started at 324 and I'm down to 287. I have noticed major differences, in a good way, in my blood pressure and resting heart rate. I have had 4 cheat meals and each time I noticed my blood pressure went back up and so did my resting heart rate. Each time I've got back into Ketosis within 24-36 hours and I feel "normal" again. I doubt I'll be cheating again for a while.

Love hearing all the success stories. I went back to low carb and have been happy about the ease of keeping the weight off.

I've been on the diet 10days. Bought some of the urine strips but just barely getting a light red tint. How accurate are these strips, anyone else use them to know if your in Ketosis?

Its more expensive! Organics and you have to throw out half your food and buy new low carb high fat stuff.

Strips are the least accurate of all the testing devices. Accuracy in order of most to least.

Blood meter - like diabetics use to check sugar but for ketones.
Breath - Rumor is their is on on the market now just as good as blood.
Strips - least reliable.

Your first time doing keto will take longer. What is the break down of your macros? I like to test mine in the morning. It seams to be the most accurate at that time. If you drink a lot of water, this will dilute your urine specimen and make it appear lower than it actually is. That's why I prefer 1st thing in the am.

Intermittent Fasting will also help put you in to ketosis faster.

Yeah it is and it is making it hard to follow. I need to cut back a little and the amount I spend at the store, around $20ish daily. I eat between 3000-3500 cal per day, 6'4 and 283.

I need to add in more hard boiled eggs. That'll help. My daily staples are beef, sausage, cheeses, salami, pepperoni, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, salads, blue cheese or ranch dressing, heavy whipping cream, Kerry Gold butter and of course coconut oil. I like avocado's but they were $2.28 each for the larges at HEB today.

Default Anyone on a Ketogenic Diet?

Thread has gone cold. I finally customized my nutrition goals and started tracking in MFP. Yesterday was a typical day. I can't possibly eat all my workout calories and most days can't even get to the regular goal. Could be why I'm only dropping 1lb a week?

I started 4 weeks ago. Only weigh once a week. Last Saturday at 3 weeks had lost 22 lbs. Just ate a bunless bacon cheese burger, salad w/ranch and a Alvacado, I'm stuffed and dropping weight like crazy. Who would of thought!

On the other end of the spectrum, I was discussing meal plans with a patient this morning that is bulking for a body building competition next year. He is eating 5,500 calories a day in the form of 8 shakes. Hardcore...
I will be starting a patient on keto diet in two weeks and will ask if I can post his progress. Started him on 100 carb diet this week to make the transition into ketosis easier.
Keep up the great job everyone.

I followed the traditional bodybuilding bro diet for a long time. Had to eat to much food and drink to many shakes to get in the necessary amount of protein. Sometimes it sucks being a bigger guy...no bragging. All those protein shakes made me an outcast. The expulsion of gas made no one want to be around me. It even offended me at times.

That's awesome! I hit 20lbs pretty fast then spent a week in London on business and consumed a ridiculous volume of beer that set me back a few lbs. Now working to get to the 25lb mark (Sunday weigh-in should be there) but in the last week I have noticed a major difference in the way my clothes fit. I'm down 2 notches on my belt. Still feel like a fat old man when going out for those 5 mile runs though. I'm still struggling to keep my electrolytes up.

30lbs today, 82 days in. Here's hoping my beer gut, man boobs and love handles come off in the next 30lbs. At least I have met my goal from the knees down and my fingers are no longer fat

Celebrating with a skinny rocks margarita and fajitas poblanas. Wife and kid take the rice, beans and tortillas.

Been a while since I was on this thread and stopped keto. Maintained the 25# drop after adding carbs back. Have felt good, no headaches, no cramps, and no knee joint pain since stopping keto. But I want to drop 50 more so I need to try again. Can anyone run the macros for me, or point me to a good website for me to enter them? I think last time I was eating too lean and not getting enough fats in my diet.

The 1st 2 weeks are the most painful. Adjusting to fat for fuel and seeing what actually does include carbs.

Does anyone have a great keto cookbook they can recommend, or one to avoid? My husband and I have been following a plan that is very much like keto, but I’m always looking for new ideas.

Wish I could help but my wife does the cooking and is an absolute wizzard. Last night we had company and she grilled steaks. Everybody else ate cheesy bacon mashed potatoes but she made mine with riced cauliflower. I actually prefer the cauliflower to potatoes now. For whatever you want to eat, just google and you will find keto options.

I believe Keto Connect on Youtube has some recipes. I know several sites pop up on my FB feed. Pinterest also has a lot.

Thanks. I get:

Protein Grams: 213
Fat Grams: 98
Carbs Grams: 158
Fiber Grams: 45-60


When all of these macros are added up you get a total of 2359 calories.

Is that correct on carbs? I thought I was supposed to be less than 20?

I started low carb June 15th, down 47 lbs on September 15th. Went from a 38 waist to a 33
Waist. I am a firm believer. Feel great, blood pressure is 123/71, resting heart rate is 68. I stopped on the 15th due to my elk hunt. I am holding steady at my present weight and am going back low carb to drop about another 5 lbs. Best thing I ever did.

You're correct. Yours should be:

2359 total

Fat - 1651 calories = 183.4 grams = 70%
Protein - 569.75 calories = 147.43 grams = 25%
Carbs - 118 calories = 29.5 grams = 5%

My weakness is Pappasito's chips, salsa, rita's and fajita's! The good thing is, it's easy to hop back on.

For the salsa, use unseasoned pork rinds...

We always take a bag of pork skins into Mexican restaurants with us. We use them with the queso and guacamole all the time, just have to take it easy with the queso & salsa because the carbs can add up if you over indulge.

85 days here and down 45 lbs. Only loosing 1-3 lbs a week now. Makes the next 55 lbs look like forever away. I'm to a point now to where cheating once voids a whole week of progress.

Everyone talking about how much it cost. One thing this has shown me is how companies really do target lower income individuals. I use to read about health problems of the poor and the quality of food, but I blew it off as nonsense. Now though, I see it every time I go to the store. Cheap food is pumped full of hidden sugars. Like peanut butter , real natural organic peanut butter isn't that high in carbs, but you look at the cheap store brands and they have added sugar or corn syrup. Of course the real peanut butter cost more.

That's a good idea. I usually just suck the salsa off the chips. Pour the queso over my fajita steak, if its not covered in goat cheese. Have thought about bringing in those HEB carb smart tortillas. Two have 6 carbs. what I use at home when making fajitas.
