Hey all! I'm back. Got off keto to switch to calorie counting and more carbs after my birthday and never could get back on track afterwards. I'm back on keto for 3 days now along with intermittent fasting (eating between 12pm-8pm) and I feel better again.

I noticed that I was aching more, craving more carbs and sweets, and never really feeling full even though I was eating the same amount of calories. I actually gained weight so decided to go back to keto even though my weight loss had slowed down a lot. This time though, I changed the macro ratios to allow a little more carbs and protein based on my lean body mass instead of the generic 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbs.

Now I just need to get my exercise back on track and I'm good. Got some catching up to do though as I basically lost 2 weeks and round 2 due to the switch. Hopefully the changes I made this time will rev up the weight loss.

I just saw a notification DietBet posted 5 days ago saying that this round 5?ends at midnight PST tonight and we have 48 hours after that to weigh-in. I also sent a note to dietbet support asking if they could do a video tutorial of the new app. It’s very confusing. You can email DietBet support at support@waybetter.com. They’re fabulous! Anyway, if you scroll down thru these notifications u should see their posting about the weigh-in. I think this one is required if we want to win Round 6 so it’s pretty important

Don’t know why the support email address cut off, it’s @waybetter.com

i did my official weekly weigh in on Sunday and was disappointed by the minimal loss. I weighed myself this morning and i've nearly hit my 2nd month's goal! I've dieted and exercised many many many times in my life. This is the FIRST TIME it has worked. I am doing intermittent fasting 18:6 and the results are AMAZING!!!!

My biggest hurdle is my sweet cravings at night. Any suggestions for sweet treats that won’t mess with my goals? (Keep in mind that I have an infant so don’t have any meal prep time)

I always have a fruit before bed it always curves any sweet cravings!

Cottage cheese with fruit and bits of dark chocolate and granola. The cottage cheese keeps your metabolism going through the night. Learn when your cravings start and try to go to bed at that time. Eventually you will lose those cravings. Mine used to occur at around 10pm so I try to make that bedtime to get a full 7-8 hrs in. Sleep is very important for many reasons, one of them being weight loss.

I cannot tell you how much I am loving and recommending keto. I met my 10% goal for this transformer just over 2 months in. Had to start another transformer then just to motivate me to keep going rather than just going into maintenance mode! I am happy to give any tips or answer any questions if any! 4 montha ago I was skeptical of this diet but my experience has convinced me.

Once I reach my goal weight I plan on switching to the Mediterranean diet or at least staying lowish carb - not keto, but well under the standard American diet carb intake. I will reintroduce some higher carb veggies, fruits, and maybe even have an ice cream on a rare occasion!

Frank H.

Keto is great, I did that for about 7 months and lost my first 45 lbs and felt very good. After slowing a little with Keto I switched to Carnivore. Carnivore has taken me almost another 22 lbs down in about a month and a half. I feel great on Carnivore, definitely renewed my spirit, health and losses. I have also been able to quit my inhaler as my asthma is gone and I don’t need my GERD medication any longer. I will transition back to Keto after a while, but Carnivore has been a great tool.

I ate way too much today. It was delicious.

I had a day like that last week too. Sometimes it is fun to splurge!

Super stressful time at work these next two weeks and I am fighting the stress eating urges. Anyone have any suggestions?

Celery has a good crunch, or pork rinds with dip. A lot of dip only has 2-4 carbs for two tablespoons and I find that helps. Another great trick is brush your teeth. For some reason that always works on stopping the urges.

Thank you! I put celery in the tuna salad I meal prepped for tuna stuffed avocados for lunch and have been eating a few sticks of celery and a few carrot sticks with that and it is pretty satisfying.

Was a bit off goal this round, so now I'm 102hrs into a 144hr fast and feeling great!! Hopefully I can catch up in time!!

That’s awesome about your fast. I’d love to hear more. In 2 weeks I’ll do my first extended water-only fast, but only for 3 days. Can you recommend some resources on what to expect and how to break an extended fast? Thanks!

Lemon

72 hrs was my first fast too! Try to eat as keto or low-carb as you can the week before so your body gets used to using fat.

Dr. Fung has stuff about fasting on his IDM website, and you can usually find some good videos on YouTube. There's also a documentary called Fasting, it goes through all the type, both healthy and unhealthy.

Good luck, the first two days are always the toughest no matter how experienced a person is. But know, day 3 is better than day 2, and day 4 is better than day 3 :)

Ugh! I was doing so well and then ate a lot more than usual, including carrot cake on Mother's Day. My kids came over and we did a ton of work outside and I know I am retaining water from just over doing it. Even worse, I didn't drink enough water. Anyway, lets just say that when I weighed in this morning I was floored at how much I gained! Not sure I can make this month's goal after this back slide but I am sure going to try. I meal prepped today so that will help some.

Found out recently that the body stores a lot of water with carbs, so eating refined sugar and starches can cause a lot of water weight. This is also why low carb diets cause so much weight loss at the beginning-it’s losing all the water that is stored along with the carbs. In other words, maybe restricting carbs for a bit after a splurge might help bring down the weight on the scale a couple of days later?

Nefarious1

Wow! That totally makes sense and I am going to try to limit carbs the next few weeks. I prepped beef and chicken kebabs with peppers, mushrooms and onions and made a greek salad to go with for dinner and am doing tuna salad stuffed avocado halves for lunches this week.

I like to experiment with fad diets for a few weeks at a time, maybe a month if it’s going well, something along the lines of don’t knock it until you try it (and I usually end up knocking it afterwards). They’re always intended to be short-term, although I suppose if I found one that worked for me longer term I would be receptive to it.

I gave keto a try starting in the beginning of May. It’s definitely not for me. The thought of eating now makes me nausested. I’m not sure if I can ever eat chicken again! I’m not craving any carbs, so the natural implication of this is that I’m just not eating very much. I’ve never loved meat or eaten that much of it, so this isn’t surprising to me.

The silver lining of this is that I’ve lost almost six pounds since the beginning of May. But I think I’m going to leap out of Ketosis after the two week mark and just go back to consciously limiting carbs rather than trying to eliminate them.

I have found a lot more respect for people who can stick to this diet!

I recognize that it’s the best diet for some people. I just wish I enjoyed the food at all. Right now, all I can stomach is cheese and tuna salad!

Mary K.

There are some plant-based keto (or just low carb) diets out there. One good source is Leanne Vogel. But if eating carbs doesn’t make you maniacally ravenous like me then you probably don’t need low carb like I do. Leanne’s website is www.healthfulpursuit.com. I’ve been doing LCHF for 2 months now and it’s changed my life. However I am tired of meat. Have started experimenting with low carb, home-made cereal (yum)! That’s from Carolyn Ketchum’s website “All I Dream About is Food.”
