I just crossed the 40-lbs lost number. I love the way-of-eating regimen, but don't want to add carbs back into the program (Diabetes), and I'm challenged to find a way to eat more on the same program (it's very satiating!). I'll figure it out...

LOL! Also on Keto and that's my go to butter for cooking. You guy's ever try fathead pizza? There is also a good copy cat Taco Bell keto crunchwrap that tastes like the real thing.

A big celebration day for me today! I hit the "50 lbs lost number" (266=>216 lbs for a 6' 6" guy ), and the Body Mass Index number flipped from overweight to normal on the same day. Diabetes numbers also now below "prediabetic" from "dangerous" a little less than 7 months ago. I can't overstate how good Keto program has been for me. Doc is going to flip out when I go in for new tests in 3 weeks!

Nice job Andy. I’m 6’ 1” but now 245 which is the heaviest I’ve ever been.

I’ve not done keto expressly but two weeks ago I had the epiphany that it was time to get my weight down to where I normally am which is around 200.

Getting bread and most carbs out of my diet I’ve already dropped 4 pounds.

What are you doing for exercise?

Mostly just walking and working in the yard (14,000+ steps in the yard yesterday).

Keto doesn't work if you allow ANY fast-acting carbs (bread, pasta, etc). And the way-of-eating doesn't really permit "cheat days" once a week. Ketosis takes as much as 5-days to reestablish once the body has has switched to carb-burning, so once a week cheating means you spend more time out of ketosis than in it.

Do it your way though - people succeed more often when they are comfortable with their program, and can do it long-term. Best of luck!!
