This weekend I hit a new low of 224lb. We did have a cheat meal at or favorite local Mexican restraint, but even then we shared a meal, and didn't eat the beans and rice.

I'm a little in shock right now, because this morning I was 212.6lb! Can't believe that when I started this thread in early April I was 241. Such a difference in how much I enjoy life. I was playing sand volleyball Saturday and didn't die. lol

Congratulations. Keep it up!!


Watched a really good documentary called The Magic Pill. Easy way to explain to folks you care about about health and the life improvements over carb diets.

We watched that too. I feel so much better since I quit sugar. Biggest thing I've noticed is I don't really snack anymore. I mean I'm rarely hungry these days. My wife is the same way. Also really awesome is my daughter is learning responsible eating from us.

Had blood work done after being on keto for around 8 months now. I have family history on both sides with high BP and cholesterol. Mine's always been high especially during the smoking years.
As of now BP, triglycerides and hdl are all normal. LDL is high as of now. Going to continue keto and do a MCT oil daily dose and retest in 3 months. If that doesn't work then I'll start the atorvastatin pill popping bullshit.

I am also on the Keto bandwagon, 1.5 months in, down 10 lbs, I feel better than I have in years, my blood pressure went up though and my pulse is higher now, going for blood work soon.

As of Sunday morning I'm 209lb. I haven't been this light in a long time. My wife has also lost quite a bit. She was running around the house all excited yesterday because she fit in a size 8 pair of jeans. I'm down in a large size shirt and am past due on buying new pants. I think I'm going to go to my boss and ask for smaller shirts. that's a great feeling!

I’m at the point that I am doing 1-2 day carb cycling to maintain. I went back to the gym and (of course) proceeded to drop a few more lbs and went below my maintenance weight threshold. I’m wearing pants and shorts I haven’t worn in years. I have several pairs of jeans I can’t wear because they’re too loose and fit stupid with a belt cinched around them to hold them up. Keep trucking Holmes! Great work! We’re in it with you!

Somebody talk about that chemical in dynamite that might kill you but makes you lose all fat rapidly.

DNP? I wouldn’t touch the shit. It can cause retinal separation as well.

The hardest thing convincing my doctor regarding cholesterol numbers was to drop taking Lipitor/Atorvastatin. I was able to show it was no long needed by dropping from 40 mg (the maximum) to 20 mg, then to 10 mg (the minimum) and finally to 10 mg every other day. Granted that if you do need to take it after all due to the genetic factor, it does do an effective job at lowering LDL levels.

with low carb diets, one cholesterol reading will be normal and other high. I have been doing low carb off and on for the past 7 or 8 years, I lose 20 lbs, get off, gain it back, back on, etc

Finally, finally back in ketosis. Had been out virtually since mid may. Did a 24hr fast after a week of low carb no sugar. At a huge base with TONS of food choices. So Keto is much earlier to stick to. Already dropping weight again and cleaning up.

I've heard now that LDL levels aren't as important as triglycerides. I don't know what to believe at this point. Goal is to just have everything at acceptable levels.
