    And the thing is, with Keto, they still have to make sure they eat less calories than they burn.

    Why make it harder than it needs to be by adding an extra level of complexity?

    Nope, no Keto here. Just boring, old calorie counting with a super uncool food scale ;)

    Good, glad to hear from others doing similar life changes. Even in real life all my co works are going on the keto diet, so it’s nice to hear from others like me

    I've done it in the past. But noticed if I go off and back it's harder to stay on it and had issues w/ gal bladder from it. I prefer just a lower carb CICO diet.

    A whole lot of non-keto going on here, we just don't chat about it quite as much :)

    Hell no to the Keto.

    I eat 55% carbs, 15% protein, 30% fat. I've lost 80 lbs and kept it off 2 years this way.

    I should add to my post here that I also ate the same way when I got overweight.

    It doesn't matter what your macros/carbs etc are so long as you stick to your calorie limit.

    I've always eaten whatever things I like. But now, I eat whatever I like within my calorie limit.

    The best diet is one you can stick to. I chose not to diet.

    With Keto, nobody lasts very long, and nobody on Keto learns how to eat normally.

    Not keto, I don't hate on it either. Whatever works for you, go for it.

    At my beginning of this process my daughter, a registered nurse, told me to get my carbs below 50 to lose weight. I tried to get my carbs below 50. I failed at that, yet I lost weight anyway. So, I quit trying on the carbs thing and kept losing weight.

    I could not do Keto, I love my veggies and need my fiber , I tried it once years ago and It made me irritable and did not provide enough fiber . I do high fiber low fat whole foods for the most part and try to stay between 1200 and 1500 cal if I exercise alot I may eat back part of those cal up to 1800 . eating a volumetrics type diet , helps me stay satisfied and having much of the days foods be low sugar and low fat leaves me a chunck of calories for a snack or treat .

    No keto here. Just trying to watch what I eat and count calories. That's enough for me.

    Seems like everyone is on the keto diet. I did it and got great results but my liver enzymes, and cholesterol went through the roof. So I’m just counting calories. I’m not going crazy over counting but just the added effort of having to log everything I eat tends to help me lose weight and I’m working out of course. So the old decrease calorie and exercise is all I am going for. Any friends that are good with that and a little friendly messaging back and forth to stay motivated are welcome ;)

    Im not on keto either and I had the same issues you did. my liver enzymes went through the roof and my already high cholesterol went even higher. but I have familial hypercholesterolemia so thats why I had those issues. I improved my cholesterol with a low fat,low cholesterol,high fiber diet and for me I had this since I was thin just did not know it until a little while ago(I was misdiagnosed as just having high cholesterol),so for me that includes meds as well.
