    I too am new to keto. Started January 2, 2019 alone with IF. I hate veggies so it’s been a struggle. I tend to eat the bun less bacon cheeseburgers like they’re going out of style 😬 Pinterest is a great tool for recipes.

    Is aspartame a no-no?

    It's fine. Some like it, others don't, but it is zero carb.

    My meals tend to be about the same, but now I leave out the starches and sugars.

    I usually skip breakfast although I will have coffee with cream.

    Lunch is leftovers, or deli meats and cheese.

    Dinner is whatever I make the family but modified a bit. Tacos are eaten as a salad in a bowl with no she'll or side of rice or beans. A steak dinner has no side potato. Cheeseburgers are bunkers. Spaghetti tomato meat sauce is on spaghetti squash instead of noodles, or I just eat the sauce with extra Parmesan. Pizza is fathead pizza, or just eat the toppings. ;)

    Good luck.

    Start with the basics! Stock your fridge up with eggs, meats such as ground beef, chicken thighs, fish, etc. get yourself some heavy whipping cream, replace your breakfast with bulletproof coffee, and eat your greens!

    My husband and I have been on the ketogenic diet since December 26. He has lost 5 lbs and I have lost 3 lbs. Best thing to do is read as much as you can on the internet and find recipes and menus that appeal to you. Keep in mind your daily carb intake needs to be below 20 carbs. Lots of meat, fish, chicken and believe it or not, lots of fat - i.e. butter, cream cheese, sour cream, olive oil, avocado oil. The best way to track your progress is to get the premium membership on MFP and make your goals specific to the ketogenic diet. Makes it much easier to see what you are accomplishing and/or what you need to change. Good luck.

    Made shrimp with zoodles. Started with evoo and sautes garlic and a radish (yes a radish - delicious WHO KNEW!!!). Added shrimp, zoodles and when done topped with a little butter, parmesan and lemon. Absolutely delicious. When put in food recipe the whole thing was 447 calories and filling. (Fat-75%, Protein-20%,Carb—5%)

    Finished Day 1 of my attempt at a "keto diet" 🤔 God help me!!

    3 sausage patties, eggs, cheese, and water (from McDonald's)

    skipped lunch (bad, I know)

    2 original recipe chicken drumsticks and diet Dr. Pepper (from KFC)

    dry roasted unsalted peanuts, unsweetened cherry applesauce, baby carrots

    Clearly, I have no Earthly idea what I'm doing.

    I have been doing Keto for years. It is one of the easiest LIFESTYLES......for me anyway. I dont call it a diet its just the way i eat. We all know the hardest thing about any new way of eating is being able to stick with it long term. Trust me i know how hard it is for anyone starting keto. Its hard because for most of you your whole life your body has been programed to burn CARBS for fuel. Now your only feeding it 20-30 carbs and thats through green veggies. It takes a week or two for your body to say " OK this SOB is not going to feed me carbs so im going to burn this fat." When you get to this point it is true what they say you lose your hunger totally.
    I go by the 70-25-5 rule 70%-fat,25%-protein,5%-carbs. I also intermittent fast for 16 hours, so i eat in a 8-hour window. Here is my thoughts on IF. When you are feeeding your body every 3 hours whats it going to think "Got this food to burn thanks." Now if im fasted whats your body going to think" This MF is not feeding me so ill burn what he has lots of ......fat" Its funny writing this because I think of it as me vs my body LOL. In a way it kinda is MIND over BODY.

    My must haves are
    eggs,bacon,spanich,avocado,coconut oil,cheese, and butter. I have these things probably about every day.

    Wife is calling so need to wrap this up any question about anything just friend me and hit me up. I am always willing to help any one that wants to live the NO CARB LIFE :)

    Been on keto for 5 months. Great result! You need time to adapt for this lifestyle. After a while you will stop feeling hungry and eat once or twice max!

    Important ingredients to always have in your kitchen are: eggs, heavy cream, cream cheese, almond/coconut flour, stevia/erythritol, butter, berries, green veggies, nuts, fish and meats.

    You can add me here as a friend, I made a lot of Keto recipes that I can share with you (mainly desserts)

    Very helpful. Thanks
