Well I have been on Keto since the beginning of January and have dropped 15 lbs.  All and all the experience is going great.  I've learned a lot on what I can and cant eat.  But I did experience something I wasn't expecting and it may or may not have been because of Keto.  I went into Afib earlier this week and had to get my heart shocked twice to get it back to normal rhythm.  I'm 40, 230 lbs, and have never once had a heart issue of any sort.  So I told the Doc about my Keto diet and they told me that its possible that its from the diet but really would never know.  But who knows...I'll still keep rockin the diet.  Gotta get my beach bod ready for Hawaii. LOL

Signing off of the keto trend after a trip to the doctors and talking with my specialist. Easy to get sucked into the trend, but I will say the weight loss I saw was not worth it.

Paying for it pretty good now, but glad I caught the issue now this early in the stage compared to 7 years ago.
Care to expound on that? Pretty vague?

Intestinal Health problem. They immediately pointed towards my last months diet and said that's one of the issues.

Exactly 1 month in and I'm down 20 pounds! I only occasionally have severe regrets about giving up delicious carbs :chuckle:

Awesome!  Iím a year into Keto. I donít call it a diet anymore. Once you transition to Fat as an energy source itís easy.

I donít keto while hunting for obvious reasons, but it has worked well for me.

Well the wife and I started the food change!  Day 18 and I have lost 11 lbs.  She hasn't weighed yet but has lost as well.  I dont eat much vegis so its tricky for me.  The meat n eggs and such is cool.  Fat bombs peanut butter butter cocnut oil are great.  Watch out erythitol sweetners.  Gave me exlax symptoms after 4 sweetened cups coffee!  I am fixing to stop soon as I don't need to lose anymore weight but the education and forced food/diet changes will continue to be included.  Just not as drastic of course.  A beer sounds good as well!!  Of note I do feel good and healthier as well.  Energy levels are more balanced most times except when I would fast dinner to dinner on occasion.  I can tell there is health benefits to this for some at least.  Helped me.  Thanks for inspiration and ideas from all in this thread.  :tup:

i started keto about the begining of feb, down 21lbs this morning, i feel great and am wearing shirts in public that I wouldnt wear before due to feeling a little to tight in them.  If anyone is into the keto thing or especially if you are on the fence, I would highly reccomend the netflix show "the magic pill"  huge eye opener

I dropped 20+ and been off Keto really since Christmas pretty much.  Holidays ruined it  :chuckle:

I never did feel energized on Keto, if you were out of shape before Keto, then Keto will not get you in shape. 

 


So I need a gym more than a diet.

Removing most carbs has solved my stomach issues. Haven't lost any weight but fewer headaches and not having daily gut pain is worth the massive restrictions. After almost 2 months its pretty easy to follow. Meat, green stuff, some berries nuts and seeds not much else. I dont eat eggs. I can tolerate limited cheese and yogurt which made me sick as hell before. So some sort of bad food interaction has been removed.

I hit my goal weight and a few extra.  Stopped Keto and gained 4 lbs in 2 days.  It wasn't from too much food.  The sugar/carb/glucose depletion is the reason.  Body needs to store water to bind with glucose to metabolize, I think I understand that lol, so as soon as you start carbs again the body ramps up storing energy and a small weight gain is to be expected from my experience.  Im at 190lb and plan to eat healthier with less carbs and more greens to maintain 190 or less.  Summer will help.  I will say the keto fat bomb wife and I make is delicious.  2tsp cocoa, half cup PB, 1/4 cup cocnut oil, half stick butter, tsp vanilla, sprinkle cinnamon.  No sweeteners.

Estimate on measurements as I don't actually measure!  I not fan of coc oil so its rather weak.  Quite good.  Lot of fat in coc oil.

Keto brick. Ordered a week pack of the cookies and cream. Tastes really good. They are shelf stable so Iím going to run them for spring bear and turkey season. I would like to try some other flavors but it is small batch stuff.

You can make similar stuff at home, check out the label on your favorite thing and start experimenting.  Cacao butter stays solid to a fairly high temp, so it makes a good base.  Melt it, add protein powder if you want, any sweeteners you want, cocoa powder, coffee, whatever floats your boat.  There are a bunch of YouTubes on it.

I tend to use them for meal replacements, add a bag of jerky or a can of fish to one of those along with a handful of nuts and you have a fairly decent meal on the road or trail.
