I rarely go into fast food places whatsoever, but it's good to see that some of them are offering these kind of choices and posting up their net carb numbers.

I've stopped with strict keto and fasting about 3 weeks ago. Just doing low carb. Never did get to 205 because I would of had to do strict fasting and I'm done with that for now. For these 3 weeks I have been fluctuating between 215 and 220. I think I've found my happy place.

They've been doing that since keto was called the Atkins diet....

Atkins has been around since the 1970’s, and I have followed its way of eating myself since 2011. Many restaurants now post their nutrition info online, but I still prefer to prepare my own food so I have control on any added ingredients. Also, I don’t use products like “Snake Juice”, instead keeping it simple and instead using readily available foods found in any grocery store.

Well Day 1 of keto started out good but ended in failure. I kind of sabotaged myself though...picked up Krispy Kreme for the kids on the way home and smoked 2 donuts just now.


I'll have to start over tomorrow.

Like anything, it gets easier. Sugar addiction is a real thing. Also, you can curb it by using substitutes in deserts, coffee, etc.

I found that trying to cut carbs and sugar down for a week or two before dropping them off to 20g was easier, and you dont feel like a failure if you slip a bit. It's also supposed to help with the flu some.

I've been flip flopping pretty bad and falling of the wagon as soon as I get back on. Yet I'm still hovering around 207 to 209. It's time to buckle down and get under 200.

I know the feeling, I have a bunch of XL shirts that look like tents on me. I am in a large now, but don't have many larges left in the closet. I'm digging out like 15 year old shirts that I haven't worn in forever. I hate buying clothes.

I'm with you, cant stand it.

I tossed a shirt on that I have had since high school, and I am a lot more muscled than i was then. The wife was laughing at me, since I'm constantly laughing at guys wearing shirts that are a size or two too small.

I gave away 10-15 XL Under Armor polos to my brother. Hell, I need to give him my larges too.

I htave 3 weeks until next r&r and cut carbs to <20 a few days ago. Probably be in keto in a few more days. Ramped up my cardio to speed up the process.

After r&r I'll turn up keto full tilt again.

I may not be my trimmest in July but I'm okay with that. I have built up more weight the way I wanted it.

That's essentially what I'm doing... weening myself off this week. Even still, once I'm in the zone, staying below 20g's of cards is tough. I'm getting back on MyFitnessPal so I can count my macros and get back in the groove.

I had dropped down to 183 from 205 and gave away all my large shirts and was able to dig out my 36" jeans and they were getting loose. It felt good. But it has slowly came back because I slacked off entirely so now my 36's are snug and I only have like 1 large shirt left.

My goal this time around is to get down to 175. I'm hoping that will get my BF below 25%

I lost about 35# in 3 months on keto. I had to start cheating more often as I got too skinny.

Once winter rolls around and I have gym time, I might have a six pack at 40. I'm low carb, but the 20 is way too hard. I averaged around 30, I gained five pounds going to 50-60 and eating healthy. My beer consumption some days was 15-25 carbs, which most people can't seem to understand how I've lost so much weight with the drinking

Nice. 40lbs is impressive.

I do carbs right now. Just no sugar. I'll go to keto 60 days before my next r&r.

I can't even eat fried or greasy stuff anymore. If I do my guts go into open revolt, and my energy level tanks for the day. Not worth it, so fuck it. No more pizza or pasta or chicken fried steak or or or.. it all hurts now. Body got used to the good life. Now its all non processed foods for the most part. Which there's still a lot of good stuff to choose from.
