I am starting my keto diet today. My blood sugar is all over the place and I'm pre-diabetic. Time for changes. I hadn't gotten far enough in my beginners keto book to know about percentages and such, so today I went over in carbs. My percentages are now set in myfitnesspal as: carbs 10%, protein 30%, fat 60%. Coffee is acceptable, also whole milk, and chocolate. I can survive on that! I discovered a delicious smoothie made with avocados, cocoa powder, honey, and milk that makes a delicious pudding for when I need decadence. My husband is ready to do this with me, so that will be a huge support. The last time I seriously watched and logged my food I lost 30 lbs in three months. Stress sucks and I gained it back plus over the last year during an uncertain future while the bear worked on getting a waiver to remain in the submarine force with his kidney stones. I don't deal so well with stress and uncertainty. That is why I married a sailor. I joined a support group on the facebook for keto diet. (I'm already in several for being a sub/navy/mil spouse) Cross fingers! I'm so tired of being so tired and sick all the time. Also getting set up for a sleep study and surgery to get the tubes tied. This baby factory is offline! (I'm 42 in September no more babies!!) I'll check back in next week for the update and some numbers, since I'm waiting for kids to sleep before getting naked and weighing and measuring everything.

I hope it goes well for you

I'm not sure what kinda diet that is. I've been on Slimming World for almost a year, and it's got me back to a weight I can live with and I feel so much better.

I probably could do with losing a few more lbs but I'm happy where I am now and am taking a break from measuring and counting 'syns'

SW worked for me bc there are lots of things I can have as much of as I want, lean meat, fruit veg most starches apart from bread (which is measured amounts). It just limited the bad stuff, fat and sugar.

Go for it - you got this! You'll start feeling so much better!

Good for you! I hope it works out the way you want *NM*
