I started a paleo diet a couple of weeks ago and so far so good.

I haven't checked my weight yet but I feel better and my leg swelling seems to have stopped.

I'm convinced carbs are a big part of the problem. It's become too large a part of our everyday meals.

Re: Diets


So a quick update on my progress. Still going to the gym 3 times a week. I have only missed 2 sessions and that was a couple of months back. I even found a $10 a day gym in Texas when I had to fly out a few weeks ago for my Grandmothers funeral.

I am down 17lbs (closing in on 18). So I am at 176.1. I seem to have hit a plateau, so I must be putting on as much muscle as I am losing fat. I know that I am still losing as I have gone down or up (I still don't know which is which) notch on my belt. In fact I had to buy two new belts as my old ones have run out of notches and I look like I borrowed my Dad's belt with all the extra hanging off the end.

Workouts have evolved as well as my diet. I am still low carb and low to no sugar. But this weekend I had pancakes and a burger with bun. I also had some DQ last week. I am eating a lot more proteins. Stacy will now cook me a couple of chicken breasts to eat after my workout.

I have also added a supplement pack to my daily routine. That is fairly new. Something in it is turning my pee neon yellow. But none of it upsets my system, so I will stick to it for the time being.

I am doing a lot more compound exercises and overlapping more on my sections. So I am not just doing Back and Bi's. I am adding Shoulders, Neck, Legs and Chest. It's just that I will concentrate on the main area for that day, but toss in a few exercises that hit those other areas. I don't like going 3-5 days without hitting all areas a couple of times. It has greatly improved my results.

If I am bold enough in another couple of weeks I will post a progress pic.

Re: Diets


I have really been paying attention to what I eat over the last few months. I am not eliminating anything but I am greatly reducing my carb intake. I wasn't a sugar in my coffee guy nor do I eat a lot of sweets and I don't drink soda so no worries there. I love steamed broccoli and cauliflower so that was easy too. Really just quick snacking at night on half a bag of chips or ice cream and drink a bunch more water.

It has made a difference in how I feel and sleep. Dropped some weight and now most night I get 7-8 hours without melatonin.

Being lighter also makes my runs easier on my knees and hips. With everything in life... moderation is key.

Have been 205 for a year straight. Stopped having cereal in the morning and switched to a one egg with yolk, 3 more with only the whites, full chopped bell pepper and half an onion with hot sauce every single morning for 3 straight weeks so far. Delicious omelette. Down to 200. Removing those carbs made the difference.

Forgot to ad in the slice of mozzarella too. Key ingredient

I did zero carbs for a while, like none, zip, zilch. That was actually harder than I thought it would be. No starch, corn syrup (super big no-go), nothin'.

Than I went to Keto which I could have about 20-40g of carbs a day (correct me if that's wrong Cricket, wife just made our meals), which was actually harder to plan but a little more satisfying cause you could still eat things like spaghetti with the right noodles. I never really lost more than 5 lbs but I'm in pretty decent shape, I just wanted to feel better.

So after Lent I could eat whatever again. Honestly, I ate sammich 2 days straight with decent bread, (the whole grain stuff) and I loved it at first. I could physically feel a difference though right after I ate it. I felt bloated and sluggish.

So, since then I've just moderated my carb intake to low key levels. I don't eat a sammich but about once every 4-5 days and only a half one. I eat salad one day a week and still heavy on protein and fiber now too.

Im not on Keto because my fatty intake is proportioned but the carb level since last year is way down and I feel much better. I just feel better overall.

Re: Diets


Pasta, bread, and rice are the ones I miss most. I still eat them...just not as much as I used to.

I will do an egg with cheese and hot sauce for breakfast most days. Lunch is always light, dinner and TV snacks is hard to get out of habit gorging on for me... little by little.

I follow a bunch of Keto stuff on IG...not because I am trying to be Keto but they have some really good healthy recipes on there.

My wife is a better example if health than me. She eats more grams of carbs than protein every day and it's still the same weight she was in High School. Not fat at all.

Your wife is in fantastic shape. Probably a better metabolism and a few life choices.

I have a feeling she is like my bride where she decides to forego on a lot of the alcohol you and I partake in.

Diet is only part of it. Carbs I've learned were killing me but not the corn syrup kind, it was the starches like potatoes and bread.

I follow a bunch of Keto stuff on IG...not because I am trying to be Keto but they have some really good healthy recipes on there.
Whole grain pasta, 12 grain bread and brown rice...all good carbs. Keto is a fad and just Atkins slightly adjusted and updated name (think Home Advisor). It's a "diet" which requires heavy restrictions and will lead to some short term results, but long term disappointment.

Metobalic nutrition is best. It matches your body type with your diet (not a diet). Surprising it's a lot more carbs than Keto and you can lose weight. It's how many movie stars get into shape for super hero roles. Again, people shouldn't look at food as a way to lose weight but a way to fuel your body.

I am down over 21 pounds and have put on some pretty decent muscle. That's another key. Put on more lean muscle.

Last night I had a tequila tasting with all kinds of salsa, ceviche and chips. And my dinner yesterday before going was 8 little pretzel dogs. For dinner tonight I had three slices of pizza.

Keep up with the small changes and creating new habits. Don't feel guilty about your bad habits, just slowly change them.

A fad? (It was 1st used in the 1920s.) I have lived a KETO lifestyle for several years now, but not for weight loss. It controls my diabetes. Just saying...

How's that video about Keto? For a Keto diet you are restricting your proteins and veg in an attempt to get the lion's share of calories from fat...

Yeah a fad diet. It wasn't called Keto, but ketogenics. And I am well aware of it's medical applications and it's history. When it was first tested it was tested on epilepsy, which is where the 1920's date comes from. Atkins was a ketogenic diet. It's now just called Keto. As a weight loss diet (and your video indicates it's for weight loss as it talks about not counting calories) is a fad. Check back with me in 10 years and I bet they aren't calling it Keto any longer. They will repackage and sell it as another diet. And the data is clear, all restriction diets (for weight loss) are, as a whole, losers for the masses. They never address the actual issue and after 3-6 months most are back to their old eating habits.

In your instance it's about a life threatening condition that allows you to control that condition. You know the context of this conversation and thread and it wasn't about disease control, but weight loss. Low carb diets are great for controlling many ailments. In fact my father is diabetic and is currently changing his diet to help maintain his condition.

So I will say again, my comments are strictly related to weight loss.

There are actually like 4 main types of Ketogenic diets.

Standard (Which is what you are referencing)
Cyclical (Usually a 5/2 cycle)
Targeted (Allows you to increase carbs timed with workouts)
And then a High Protein Keto diet (Nearly doubles the protein intake over the standard Keto)

But this is why I say it's a fad diet. Everyone has their take on it when it's really just a low carb diet.

The video is for those just getting started with KETO/LCHF (Low carb, high fat, moderate protein.) There is nothing on that list that isn't KETO friendly.

A Ketogenic lifestyle is a way of eating. The purpose is to get into (and stay) in Ketosis. This generally happens somewhere between 20-30 carbs per day, depending on the person. (I have known a few very active people that get into ketosis with as much as 40 carbs per day.)

For those just starting, it is much easier to begin just knowing what to eat. Meat, in most cases, has no carbs. Above the ground vegetable have very few carbs and for those who count net carbs, they can subtract the fiber, making them even lower. Most healthy fats are limited in carbs as well. For those who feel the need to track macros, mine are generally Carbs 5%, Protein 15%, and Fat 80%.

In the end though, when it comes to our eating lifestyles, each of us has to figure out what works best for us. It doesn't matter what works best for me, or for your buddies. It matters what works best for YOU.

P.S. The video was created for a Diabetic forum that I work with. For me, KETO has NEVER been about weight loss. It has always been about living a healthy lifestyle and controlling my diabetes. FWIW I avoid most processed stuff and eat REAL food.

The whole Keto community is helpful in like Overanalyze said, my wife follows them just to find healthy things to make.

The point of beginning this thread was for health (gastrointestinal and herniated discs) and the effects food has on it. Although others made it about weight loss, that wasn't the intention.

Go back and read the first 17 posts. The title of the thread is just diet and you don't mention it not being really weight related until post 18. So maybe that was your intention but it wasn't clear until well within the discussion and the subject of weight loss was thoroughly discussed.
