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.

Can anyone provide some cost saving measures to this lifestyle? I spend way to much money at the store.

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.

IT IS SO EXPENSIVE. A lot of the ingredients I use for stuff, I have to get at Whole Foods. I leave there feeling pretty defeated every time.

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.
