    So only a couple days and the amount of people welcoming me has been great! So now I’m on the quest to lose weight and not a diet but a life change,Keto had been good so far, God I miss bread, lol. Just want to get any ideas and or suggestions that may help. I have a long way to go but I must get there not only for cute outfits but for long term health benefits. So any advice is greatly appreciated, Thanks so much. 🙂

      There are so many personal factors in finding a good diet regime. Natural body frame, Normal daily work rate, health, family history, for starters.

      I had a job where part of it was nutrition and coworkers asked advice on dieting. The first thing I looked at was frame and asked a few questions on the above. Finally I asked about the food they were eating and when they are eating and drinking. In the majority of cases it was a simple task to advise on changes that were quite obvious and achievable with no major changes. 

      One case was a chap who had a very physical job. He was about 6’6″ tall, big build and about 240lb. He was a bit overweight and I gave him some ideas to lose maybe 30lb over a reasonable period of time. A couple of weeks later he said he had been to a diet class and was given a rapid weight loss program and was to aim for 182lb. I looked at him and said that isn’t a good idea. He went for it and the weight came off very quickly. About a month in he looked very drawn and while on shift he collapsed and rushed to the emergency room. The reason was that he had nearly had heart failure. After that he went back to a sensible diet and recovered to a sensible 180lb. 

      Like I have said most people know what is or isn’t good for them and a good balanced diet with sensible exercise is the way ahead. There is no such thing as a perfect weight for all as we are so different.

      Personally I wouldn’t go on a diet. I know some girls are conscious about their weight, but I think of  Karen Carpenter and what happened to her. I wouldn’t tell any girl what to do, but I would say please think very carefully before you start a diet.

      I’m always on a sea food diet. See food and eat it.

      Hi Kristina.

      Good luck with the keto, but it sounds awfully harsh …and does not sound a good idea long term. maybe after a period you could alter it to something more manageable.

      Personally I’m a great believer in reducing your portion size and exercising regularly.

      Instead of totally cutting out, you can try cutting down, and it’s still possible to lose weight. We eat every day and it need not be boring.

      I have tried the keto diet and it works.  I lost weight quite quickly. Essentially, cutting out carbs forces your liver to look for another source of energy. You!  It goes after your stored body fat. You could call it “self digestion.”

      It’s great for a short term crash diet, but is hard to maintain for long. Nor should you, because of possible long-term health issues. It takes willpower.  Your body craves sugar.

      And a ribeye diet without fries is just not the same.  And no bacon sandwich!   It gets tough to abstain.

      So my advice is go for it for just a few weeks, then slowly go back to a sensible low-carb diet.   Just cut out, if you can, puddings, pies, pastries, biscuits and cakes. And moderate your rice, pasta and taters.

      And processed foods – which are the biggest source of hidden sugars.

      Otherwise your sacrifice and  self-restraining keto diet will have been for nothing.

        This isn’t going to be extreme, I have a good balanced meal plan. But yeah your right, I will need that dessert once in a while. Thankfully I am familiar with bone broth so coming off keto won’t shock my body so much. And by the way love your profile photo, omg your so pretty!

      Hi Krystina, good for you for working to keep your weight under control.  Like I said in another post, I was up to almost 200 lbs a few years ago, and finally got upset enough to do something. So, although I’ve read about a number of diets, I did the standard things of reducing my intake, switching (but not totally) to healthier foods, and exercising. I lost almost 30 pounds over about 9 or so months…and then relaxed it a little especially with covid as the gym I belonged to had shut down.  I understood at least for me, that slow and steady seems to work best

      My weight has inched up since then about 6-8 pounds, so I’m back at it, and this time, I going to lose at least 10 to 15…if not more.  I know it will be harder especially now around the holidays as I love the turkey and sides that my spouse prepares (as well as a number of holiday goodies), but I’m back to daily exercising at the gym, and trying to cut back on the worthless but delicious junk I do enjoy.

      Krystina,

      I use an app called MyFitnessPal to watch my weight. It is a calorie based system. Take a look at it and see if it might interest you. It is a free app.

      By the way, I love the spelling of your name.

      Hugs, Liara

      This is what I’ve been using, too. I don’t have to give up any particular food group, just track my caloric intake. I’ll admit, I’ve kinda taken it to the extreme, but I’ve lost 35 pounds in just nine weeks (I know, not the recommended pace). I’ve also walked/jogged 1-4 miles about 5 times per week, on average.   I’ll up my calories after I reach my goal to a maintenance level.

      Please be careful. If you actually get into Ketosis, it can be dangerous if you take the wrong step. I was actually in ketosis and maintained it for a long time. I lost a lot weight. My doctor/neurosurgeon/dietician saw me weekly. Did blood work weekly. I did daily blood checks similar to checking blood sugar for diabetics. Actually it was the same machine.

      I developed other health concerns that could be contributed to being in ketosis. So I slowly stopped.

      I wish you well.

        I once thought about that but the waste never made sense to me.  I just toss the apple,carrot,celery etc into a Vitamix Blender and consume all of it.

      My wife lives on keto due to having her thyroid removed for cancer. There are a lot of great recipes that are just as good, if not better than the carb versions. I even get pizza! I am not on full keto, but do eat low carb due to health issues.
      Keto or not, I highly recommend avoiding vegetable oils and margarine, especially margarine, very bad for your health in general, along with processed sugar.
      My wife runs a strictly non-commercial keto recipe and shopping group on Facebook, if it does not violate the rules, I will post a link here for anyone interested. It’s amazing what she can make that is low/no carb.

        I joined a site called eative, they provide a meal plan and information. Mostly I just have to stick to it and not cheat. If I see bread I just have to remember, it’s the devil! LOL

      Salt. Salt. Salt. You pee a lot on keto. Don’t be afraid of fats. Avoid all vegetable oils, and margarine.
