    Whelp... didn't make it today :/ . Having a hungry day, so too many carbs and too much protein because I can't stomach any more fat, ugh.
    Goals for me:
    Drink my 8 glasses of water check-mark.gif

    IF for at least 14 hours and preferably 18 daily check-mark.gif

    Stay at or below my 25g net carb goal

    Make sure my protein hits approx 70g BUT not much more

    Get at least one day a week of non-work related exercise check-mark.gif

    My goals are
    to break through this stall (been losing and gaining the same lb for literally months!!!)
    Start logging consistently again - I stopped as I was feeling it made me obsess about food but now I'm being too complacent
    Get to bed earlier and hopefully get more sleep of an evening to counteract the early mornings

    Nov start weight: 141lbs

    I would like to lose 5lbs in November

    11/1 Check in

    Monthly Goals:
    I'd love to lose 10 pounds this month, but don't know that it's realistic. I'm going to keep it as my goal though...aim high, right??
    My anniversary is on the 20th, so I want to possibly go off plan that evening (a glass or two of wine) without derailing completely and going back to old eating habits.


    Daily Goals:
    Water: 70/100oz
    Logged Food: check.jpg
    Exercise as Planned?: I'm planning to go for a 2 mile walk on my lunch break 3 days a week
    At or Under Carb Level: 23/20 - boo, so close!
    At or Under Calorie Limit: check.jpg

    So close on a couple, but only 2 legitimate points

    Month total: 2/5

    I really have just one goal, which I started yesterday, and really fits the no nonsense challenge. I'm committing to 30 days of carnivore. And no counting.

    No fussing over calories, carbs, macros, or weighing; causes too much stress for me. Just meat, eggs, butter, limited cream and cheese, water, and one morning coffee.

    You can do this. You might be shocked at how easy it becomes. It's almost effortless. I expend very little energy feeding my dogs, because there's no real choice. I expend very little energy feeding myself. It's just "what meat is thawed?" followed by "do I need to thaw or buy more meat?"

    I have what I feel is a very silly question about going full carnivore. How do you manage the constipation that results? I've tried going carni a week at a time, but I always end up adding in a few vegetables or high-fiber tortillas for fiber because I get backed up otherwise.

    Not a silly question at all. Drinking enough water is the number 1 thing!!! Senna, smooth move tea, psyllium husks are also some things to use. I use MCT oil to meet my daily fat intake and helps with this too.

    My goals:

    --Keep net carbs at or below 20 g per day

    --Keep calories at 1200 per day 6 days a week and allow 1 planned day of 1500 calories.

    --Low carb alcohol is only allowed on the 1500 calorie day

    --Exercise 4x per week

    Log everything!!!

    Day 1 is complete. My calories, carbs and exercise were in range. I logged it all.

    My 1500 cal day is Saturday so we'll see if this works. I hope it doesn't trigger a binge. Even if it does I will have learned something I guess. I should add tracking water as I'm sure I'm not drinking enough.

    This is a restart for me. I hope to get under the overweight BMI for my height but I won't lose twenty in two months. All I am looking for now is a good start.

    I have quite the opposite experience. High fiber constipates and bloats me, even when eating ample fats. Day 33 LCHF, low fiber, for me and Day 3 ZC. Zero constipation.

    It's a low residue WOE. Sure, I have less volume in my BMs, but certainly not constipated. No bloating, pain, or cramps. Fat intake seems to be the key. I aim to keep my fat intake high in relation to protein by choosing fatty cuts, lots of eggs, and cooking with moderate amounts of fats.

    11/1 was good for me. Perfect on my macros, carbs and calories.

    I am really fighting an urge to eat some candy today. Trying to figure out why. When I think about why I want it... all I get is that is just sounds really good/enjoyable to eat. I don't really feel a physical craving... a mental one I guess.

    Today is a tougher one for me. The local highschool my boys attend does one large fundraiser each year. A fall supper. They typically feed 3-400 people. Food done by the home ec classes(typical thanksgiving style meal, tons of protein choices, carb heavy choices, desserts) with some donation by parents. We always attend as it is one of the best and easiest fundraisers around and it saves me cooking for a night. So today I am opting to fast until supper and just have the one large meal. Black coffee was breakfast and will be lunch and I will choose ham, turkey/roast beef and greens as my meal. Top the meat with some sour cream, and do my best to avoid the dessert table. Coffee with cream to finish.

    I will try to log it all, but it is hard to be accurate. Wish me luck! Thankfully, that should be my only really complicated meal this month. All the others should be easier to control. And when faced with uncertainty, fasting is usually my routine to keep the calories in check at the very least.

    When I started dieting again this month I had decided to only cheat on my birthday, Thanksgiving Day (no leftovers) and Christmas Day. Now that my birthday is almost here I don't think I have been dieting long enough to break my concentration so I am going to do Thanksgiving, Christmas and maybe a glass of wine on New Year's.

    1) Log every thing every day :)
    2) Keep it under 25 net carbs :)
    3) Only step on the scale once each week (the scale makes me crazy) - Weighed today, no getting on the scale until next Monday! :)
    4) Drink more water than diet coke :)
