Who is doing Keto and sticking with it??



Recommended Posts

OK guys!!!! I started Keto 2 weeks ago and would love to have a forum of just Fellow Ketoers!! We can trade recipes, stories, question, concerns etc. Keto stuff is all over the internet...but nothing about doing it after WLS. I use My Fitness Pal to track all food/drink, calories, carbs, fats. I currently stay until 12g carbs per day, 60g Proteinand 27g fat. I use Ketostix every morning to make sure I stay in Ketosis ( usually a 4) but I don't feel I'm losing quick enough.

What is your experience so far with Keto and your daily intake of foods?

It's just so hard for me to get in enough calories and Protein.

Trust me, I'm not looking for the Dietary police! But I hardly get any Protein in because of my surgery. I do however choose to cut out carbs and stick to healthy amounts of protein and fat.

I'm Keto and desperate for something sweet. I stick to the same boring fish chicken and steak with veggies. Like you I'm having a hard time meeting protien goals but I can sure put away some avocado. I've been keto for 2 months and it seems to be working.

You should try fat bomb recipes on Pinterest.. They also have a recipe with sugar free pudding and heavy whipping cream... makes a delicious mousse... I like the cheesecake flavor the best

Me neither but you may wanna research that sugars feed cancer way more that Protein.

Wow, Msdooloo that's great! Have you updated your stats recently? They don't seem to match the above pic. Was just wondering how much total you have lost now. Looks like you are at goal.

No I haven't updated my stats. I'm still 30pds away from my goal weight. Hopefully this summer I'll hit it!

I'm in for this. I haven't started yet, so can't contribute much yet. I hope to get started this week. I heard the first week or so is kinda tough coming off carbs, but maybe since I'm just over 5 weeks postop and haven't had much carbs in it won't be so bad.

At around 3 months post op, i began having salty carb cravings, Cheez-its, or Triscuits, etc. Dry, carb, salty is what i really wanted! When I found myself at the store buying a big box of Cheez-Itz, I realized I needed to change something. So I did some reading and research, and knowing that Keto is forever, not just to get to a goal, this was a bigger jump for me somehow. But I had all that surgery and all, so why not go for the gold??

I've recently downloaded 4 cookbooks that use 5 ingredients, contain 5 carbs to make all of the keto recipes, Bfast, lunch, dinner, and Dessert (In Five <-- for those google searchers). These aren't bariatric geared, so I have to pay attention to the end of day totals and see if i'm lacking in any Protein areas. LOTS of fun foods in there, incorporating cream and cheese and eggs into a lot, but at the same time, not having to eat eggs and bacon every morning for bfast. I've not used those ketostix, but I'm sure as this goes along, I'll want to keep up with that. I'm still just starting out.

This morning I am eating a Maple Pecan Porridge, made with Coconut Flour and Ground Flaxseed, with Cinnamon and toasted Pecans. I has a great taste, and certainly filled me up faster than expected. And most of these recipes are made for either 2 or 4 servings. I'm making for me only, hubs is a carb man, but I usually can adjust for 2 servings so that i only have 1 leftover meal.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
