Still teetering around 160 pounds, but I dropped to a 32 inch waist! Pants been getting extra roomy and it was time for new ones. What a shocker. Dropped 4 inches!
Got a wedding in a few weeks to go to. Sure enough I tried on my suit pants and I'm thinking I got to take them in at the waist some how or buy a new suit.

I did it!
Guess who's Keto?
This guy!
Took a while, being lactose intolerant and all.
I'm on the dark side of the Keto stick now!

What did you eat to get there? How long did it take?

[QUOTE=irie feeling;295600]2 strips if bacon at every breakfast. Used the fat to cook my eggs in.
Low carb burrito tortilla wrap turkey/ham/romaine lettuce/avocado/much Mayonaisse every lunch (but would sometimes switch it up and omit the. Burrito tortilla and use lettuce as the wrap)
Fatty meat (4 oz) and a green vegetable or cauliflower ( faux rice or faux mash potatoes) smothered in butter.
All the pork rinds I can eat.
A hand full of macadamia nuts a day
Occasionally made "fat bombs" found on Internet.
Used recipes in Keto cookbook recommended by nutritionist at Drs office.
Used Almond flour when frying. Fryed a lot.
Fatty fish, tuna steaks, salmon, Mahi.
No bread
No chips
No starches
Found Keto pizza made with almond flour dough and deep dish made with veggie cream cheese.
Ate portabella pizza when family had pizza night.
Had brats and sauerkraut
Had salad with oil and vinegar I made( lots of oil).
Sometimes I ate half a stick of butter just for the hell of it.
Kept the fat to carb 4:1 ( I got a book and learned how to read labels)
I got "Keto Styx" from the pharmacy and checked my pee every 4 days took me 6 weeks.:icon_biggrin:

I got a little pink on the Keto stick yesterday morning, so just barely in ketosis.

On another note, I had ghee for the first time with some dill on flounder a couple nights ago, and it was delicious.

Good for you, Two cubs!
I went back the other way on the sticks. Nutritionist not happy. Gave me a MCT supplement. To put me back in ketosis. Cost too much to buy. $200 by prescription only. She mentioned MCT oil if I could tolerate it (can buy at stores) and to switch all cooking to coconut oil and use butter to slather meat and veggies when cooked.
I switched to coconut oil. And bought some MCT and put it in my coffee. Don't dven taste it!
Are you familiar?
I ll check my ketones in a couple days.

Forgot to ask you Two cubs, how do you feel? What's your body telling you?
Are you doing this by choice?

TwoCubs 02-23-2018 12:32 PM

By choice. My body is telling me that I ache too much and am fat. So, there.

I hear you TwoCubs. I don't consider myself to be obese but aches and pains and bloating after compulsively snacking on crap and a gut that won't go away are enough for me to go Paleo - or at least give up sugar (chocolate) and alcohol. Day 2 and a quality BM (hey I'm old, it's important to me) and I'm already down a couple of pounds (back under 200.) The aches and pains are starting to subside and my pants feel looser.

So what am I going to eat today?

Breakfast: coffee and and ham/cheese/onion/scallion/tomato omelet (just like I've been eating but with less cheese.

Snack: blueberries

Lunch: grilled chicken breast marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, pickle juice (heard that that's what Chick Fil A does) with some paprika and garlic powder on a wrap of green leaf lettuce with a slice of tomato, red onion and a couple of pickle chips and topped with an indulgence of mustard. It's all about the greens and proteins for me now.

Snack: an apple and some cinnamon/honey roasted almonds (which I know are baaaad)

Dinner: hamburger patty with a side of asparagus done up with the same fixings as the chicken break minus the mustard. I'm not Canadian. I'll be looking for the A-1, which is also baaaaaad.

I also need to remember to drink a LOT of water and take my Omega III supplements.

Sounds like you doing good!
Cheese ok. Low carb. (Unused carbs turn to body fat).
Everything you're eating on the list is good.
I do my 2 cups of real coffee and start my first pint of water at 11am and try to do a gallon by 9 pm.
A glass of diet soda counts. Just one.
Miralax or equivalent. My nutritionist says DAILY. (You can back off a day if its way too much for the colon)
Constipation and pushing can cause hernias.
Good for you both
Guess what!
A month seizure free!
It's the no carb diet and the implant. Neither one is a cure, but together, they kick E's butt.
