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.

Ketogenic way of life.

I've started on a ketogenic diet. If you've not heard about keto, its basically a high fat, moderate protein and low carb way of eating.

Keto diet is around 75-80% healthy fats, 15-20% protein and around 5% carbs.


As many of you may or may not know, I went on a Mediterranean diet a while back. I had lab and blood work done before and again sometime after.

Weight was down, blood pressure down, cholesterol was a little high still but still good enough to avoid meds. My blood sugar was up tho, presumably from the fruit. Carb consumption was very high on the Mediterranean diet.

I've switched to the keto diet which is in short just cutting carbs, limiting protein and upping healthy fats and this puts your body in ketosis, while in ketosis, your body burns body fat instead of stored glucose.

You will not be hungry and you will lose weight and gain energy at the same time. This will end carb cravings and food addiction.

It's a great diet for overweight individuals, diabetics, as it gets blood sugar and insulin levels back under control, folks wanting to drop blood pressure and cholesterol and many other health benefits.

It's not a "diet" per se, it's a lifestyle change. I've seen and read of morbidly obese persons safely losing over 100 pounds in under a year, without hunger and WITH eating LOTS OF CHEESE AND BACON! :cheese: :bacon:

Check it out!
I've heard of it, my diet has consisted of a lot of healthy fats and oils, though I've been more interested in the Zone diet as of late, which is a bit lower on the fat proportions.

I'm back on the wagon as of yesterday. It's tough as there are still plenty of holiday carbs floating around the house. Really want to drop 15 before we head back to PNG towards the end of February.

I've surprisingly managed to hold fast at 225#. Going to get back on the wagon myself starting this week. New job is going to make it really tough though.

Yeah, I left the hospital admin job for the medical device industry. Wasn't looking to change but my head was hunted and they made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I had been working as an independent contractor/consultant for the company on the side for several months. The only real downside is that the job requires a good bit of travel which means eating on the road which is difficult for the keto diet. On the upside, though, if I can find keto friendly food, corporate pays for it. :D 8)

Don't forget to check the supermarkets for the delis. I have been finding a lot of them having great plate lunches. While we've been home this time I've picked up a lot or carpentry work and often find myself out and about during lunch and have gone the blue plate route. Some decent baked chicken with a side of turnip greens isn't bad. Also, you can usually find already made salads and can get one of the rotisserie chickens to go with it. Just a thought.
