To Keto or Not To Keto?

Everything I hear is either "OMGGGGG you must go Keto, I lost a bazillion pounds!"

Or it's "Don't go keto. The minute you eat anything not keto, you gain SO much weight."

    If you could give up pasta and bread, go have a try

    I tried Keto as a quick fix two years ago. Didn't ever track my calories and was successful dropping 45lbs.
    It was easy to give up bread/pasta (never really cared for it) but continually depriving yourself of things like fruit or chocolate etc is not great mentally. For me it became very restrictive- planning where we ate in advance etc, which doesn't work with our lifestyle as we like to travel.

    Idn- it works for some people, but it is restrictive
    I'd much rather personally just track my food and eat what I want.
