I've been off the diet for 1 1/2 weeks now. I'm sweating on this job so much I'm going through about 4 shirts a day and need the carbs. Not to mention that I have little time for lunch so really I'm just grabbing fast food. I'll jump back on as soon as this job's done...well, when it's done I'm going to have a beer. Then I'll get back on.

I tend to eat something close to Keto or Mediterranean diet even though I'm not officially "on a diet" or have any specific goals other than to eat healthy.

My meals lately mainly consist of fish (canned mackeral, which is inexpensive) and other protein sources (e.x. black beans, chia seeds), and lots of healthy fats (e.x. olive oil, peanuts, etc).

I find that cutting most red meat or cheese out of my diet helps me keep the grocery budget down if nothing else.

I've spent 7 months on a keto diet and lost. 50lbs. I've started gaining it back and went back on low carb diet two weeks ago and already lost 6lbs

I've simply made sure my calorie intake is less than my calorie use by physical activity and I'm 1 pound shy of losing 50 pounds in 5 months! Calorie management is much more important than dietary makeup.

In some cases that is true. In my case with my arthritis, carbs absolutely destroy me. No carbs, almost no pain.

Well done. I Did a few days worth of meal prep last night. That should get me over the hump.

Were going out to a fancy pants place for anniversary dinner in an hour.

I grabbed my wedding clothes from last year out of the closet and they're WAY TOO BIG..

I have no other nice clothes so the wife suggested that I just pull up the pants around my midsection like an old man does.

So now I wearing them old man style with belt cinched up super tight.
