Feeling your pain brother, but reaping the benefits of going full Keto recently. Retired from the military 14 years ago and without the mandatory PT, I seemed to relax into "retirement mode" (OK, I got lazy as hell)! I was told by a doctor that I would benefit by going gluten-free as well. I remember thinking that they may as well dig a hole and push me in! :grin:

I remember thinking that the whole "gluten-free" and Keto movements were more in line with hippie fads!

Since using Keto around mid August I've dropped 23 pounds. Amazing how it feels in the back, the knees, etc...

Those cravings sure as hell haven't gone away, but as fast as the weight is coming off I think I'll see where this goes...

Good luck!

Good luck to ya. I’m about to start the same journey. What’s the old saying I’m not overweight just too short for my weight. If I was only 9’6” I’d be perfect.

After my 2nd grandson was born (12 years ago) I quit smoking after 3 packs/day and I thought it was the hardest thing I ever did, but sugar is by far the hardest addiction I have ever faced. I still eat like a teenager, but I'm not half as active as I used to be.

Hang in there, Steady, it requires discipline and keeping your mind off the subject.
Just focus on something else (like Sofia Vergara) and tell the better half you need more exercise.

3 months ago I started eating healthy because my lipid panel came back abnormal. cut out about 85% of sugars from my diet and introduced more vegetables in my diet and zero carbs for dinner. I've lost 23lbs. You can do it!!!!

Who would have thought back in 2016 when I was researching (Google) Road Glides and ever search pointed me here that I would sign up and begin discussing Health Topics.......only to find a bunch of goof balls like me going through "Life' as well - Thx again Lads - It is inspiring to me to see that I am not the only one who needs to make a change (because the OL is....) and even more inspiring to hear of you fucks who did and the positives from it

I have fought it for years now, telling the OL..."I'm Good.....Do we Have anymore of those Microwave Burritos?" and then wondering why I am not seeing a change - She has been politely nudging me down this path and now she herself is hard charging it....it reminds me of this

Oh and the kids are having a BALL fucking with me about it too.............lil shits........Christmas will be here in no time and Daddy don't forget !!! (who am I kidding, I am a push over and they know it....they'll get spoiled like they always do)

It sucks, but do it. I need to do more, I'm starting to slip. But 3 and a half years ago, after having my chest split open, a vein ripped from my leg and cut into pieces to reroute around blockages in my chest I realize I should've listened. I had done some of what I was told, and the doc said it kept the heart attack from killing me but I'm too damn young to have had that happen. Thanks for the kick in the ass to get back on the wagon.

It'll subside my man. That's all the toxins getting out of your system. Stick with it, you'll be happy you did.

I would say just add 4 times the amount of actual veggies to lunch and dinner than you normally do, but I know some folks don't eat any and consider potatoes, peas, and corn veggies.

Seriously, Veggies are so low in calories that you feel full and cut down on your overall calories greatly.

Also cut out all condiments and go with dry seasonings instead.

When I am on work trips it is the hardest to maintain.

Since I have been in New Mexico I have eaten
  • Green Chili Cheeseburgers
  • Green Chili Lasagna
  • Green Chili Chicken Enchilas
  • Smoked Brisket and egg burritos
  • Green Chili Brisket stew
  • Western Omelets w/green chili
  • Green and Red Chili Wines
  • Green Chile Pistachios
  • Green Chili Dip and chips
  • A lot of Ice Cream after all that Green Chili food!
Eating a Salmon and Veggie Salad tonight. That should compensate and level me off. :grin:

Something I forgot is that you have to be careful of what fruits you eat as well, since your body will naturally convert some fruits into sugar. I think bananas, apples, and pineapple are a couple of examples to avoid. Strawberries, blackberries, and blue berries are ok though I think.

Drink two ounces daily

It's an adjustment for sure ,at least first week or 2. It's definitely worth it when you see the results!

I tried it with a shot of Jack. Ruined the Jack. Follow it with a shot of Jack. Much better.

My wife tried to drink it in tea. Tried to tell me it was good. What a liar! She gave up after a week

I think age has something to do with it. When I hit 50, my metabolism went to shit. I can't eat half of the stuff I used to eat without gaining weight. Takes more exercise to get it off too. The good side of this is that groceries are a lot less costly. Takes little of nothing to fill me up.
IT'S A MIND GAME. You gotta be strong!

So eat a breakfast skillet without potatoes and toast. Eat all the eggs, bacon, sausage and green veggies you want. That's the beauty of keto, you dont have to go around starving and counting calories. You do need to make sure you have enough fat though.

We need to go shopping as the OL and I are super lazy when it comes to cooking so 90% of our stuff is "Easy to Prepare" which means unhealthy as fuck

SWO - I got one that is Blueberry Flavored and have been shooting that shit 2x a day

I had Bacon, Chicken and Tabouli Salad last night for dinner........the hardest part is not having the Oreos and Milk after...........all and all..........I think I somehow GAINED weight?

That's because your body is freaking out over the change in diet. Once you finally shit out all the toxins you will have lost weight.

The biggest problem with those Atkins and Keto and whatever fad diet is that you can't do it long term and if you cheat you will gain weight.

Fill up on Veggies and cut your meat and carb intake is the best long term healthy way to eat.
