    I've been successful with the Keto diet, but let myself slip back into bad habits. Getting back on the way of eating again. I never felt better when I was following the Keto diet. Looking for encouragement and accountability.

    Hi Donna!
    This is my first time trying keto. I'm currently on a 4 day streak with my spouse. I am also keeping my caloric intake lower than usual as I am not as active right now (busy/stressful schedule).

    Keto has been great so far until last night - I had cravings for sweets for the first time this week. I boiled the kettle and put about 3tbsp cocoa powder and 1 tbsp of heavy cream (hot chocolate). It curbed my cravings!

    I don't feel the greatest this morning though. My body must be in a withdrawal from lack of carbs and sugar!

    Getting over the sugar addiction will be the biggest bump in the road, but after you push through you'll feel great! I used to have a mad sweet tooth but now I have very little cravings for sugar or even any grains for that matter. It's very empowering to have control over it.

    And the tuna stuffed avocados look amazing! I'll be making those, thanks for sharing!

    Feel free to add me if you need recipe ideas, I love to cook so I love to share ideas and I post a lot of them to my Instagram (username AmZam05_LCHF). If you're looking through my food diary though be aware that I am currently carb cycling and eating pre-workout carbs on my lifting days, but breakfast/lunch/dinner are usually all solid LCHF.
