  • Thanks everyone, some of these sound yummy! I'll try some out soon.
  • This is exactly my approach as well and its been working extremely well. However, I wonder if its a good idea to check at the beginning to figure out one's threshold (i.e. how many grams of carbs can I consume in a day before it throws me out of ketosis).
  • If you're consistently eating this little it could very well be the cause. I experienced this some years ago during an unhealthy phase in my life when I was borderline anorexic. I was regularly eating about this amount of calories per day. And I had diarrhea ALL the time. In fact, whenever I ate a little more on a random…
  • When someone stalls, maybe its just water weight. Maybe if measurements were taken it would indicate fat loss. IDK, just brainstorming.
  • Total conjecture on my part, but, I don't believe in "starvation mode" in preventing weightloss. My mom has this, slighly tasteless, polish saying, "there weren't any fat people is Aushwitz." True that. In concetration camps, people ate very little and lost weight. Anytime you limit calories you will lose weight.
  • I'm only six weeks new to the diet but have allowed myself an indulgence twice. I didn't weigh myself the next morning because I anticipated that scale would go up and I wasn't mentally prepared for that. So I waited until the following regular weigh-in day (five days later) and I was still down 1.5 lbs for the week total…
  • I recently made this exact brand for the first time, and it passed the "did I like it enough to make it again" test. It has a very similar taste and texture to real pasta; though more tougher/harder (I guess if you like your pasta this way it won't bother you, but I like mine soft). I definately preferred it to zucccinni…
  • Hee heee "fat enough..." that's what I always think people are thinking about me too! As an aside, what DO you eat with spreads? I am missing having things that I used to "dip" pre keto.
  • Very interesting! I recently had an "addicting" experience myself. I allowed myself to indulge in chips and cookies once night, after being "good" for many weeks. THe next day I was totally craving again --- I wanted to stuff my face with more chips and cookies, it was nuts! I managed to stay on track after 24 hours but it…
  • All of them are so cute! I'd love to post my fur baby, but how the heck do you post pictures here???!?!??
  • Update: I am one month into it now and I can happily say that the acne did go away after about a week. My skin is back to normal, but with less frequent breakouts.
  • Totally true. I'm only three weeks into Keto, and was just recently going through this myself - I was feeling hungry trying to follow the "rules" and staying within my prescribed calorie range. Within a week and a half my body naturally started to feel full and a small breakfast (coffee, one egg and slice of bacon) started…
  • Thanks everyone.
  • I made those but sauteed them instead of boiling. They turned out and were really good. But my low-carb disaster happened yesterday when I tried to make bacon and spaghetti squash patties. They didn't hold their shape at all. And what I got in the end was a mush. Still tasty, but a bit too oily since the mush just soaked…
  • I wonder if that means you're also ovulating each time?
  • So weird that you just posted this and I JUST scheduled a doc appointment for this very reason! I didn't even think there could be a connection to keto. Hmmmm. Thanks for posting. I started spotting about a week and a half after I started Keto. A week after I finished my TOM, I potted light red/pink for just over 24 hours…
  • Yes, ask to get your thyroid checked. I had this issue at one point - gainined weight unexplainably, and not able to lose it. Turns out I needed medication for my thyroid. It can really mess up how your body functions. Its an easy blood test.
  • I make bacon and eggs the night before (sometimes I make some for a few days at a time), put them in tupperware containers for each day, and then stick them in the fridge and grab one on my way out in the morning. They taste just as good warmed up in the microwave.
  • Chiming in late in case there are others looking through old posts. I'm one week into Keto and I am also breaking out. Not much help in answering the question of wether this will go away, but at least I know its related to the new way of eating. I sure hope it passess!!! based on a couple of the other responses, it sounds…
  • No, I don't think so GSD_Mama, I'm no stranger to coconut oil. The only thing thats changed for now is the huge influx of fat I'm consuming. In my mind it makes sense - you hear all the time, especially in women, that they often get acne when they eat oily things or sweets. So that's why I thought it might be that, and my…
  • Yes, please add me. I'm 6 days into it (and 4 lbs down!) and still have questions popping up ALL the time. Guidance needed for sure!
  • Thank you everyone for the input -- very helpful. SteveKroll, seeing your results really does speak volumes to me. Thanks for sharing those and your progress pics. Fvaisey, I will definately check out that site and start researching more. By the way, I made your bulletproof coffee (your recipe from another post), with the…
  • I've been just using the powerdered kind you get at the grocery store. Having said that, I've just begun this lifestyle so maybe I'm doing it all wrong, however it is doing wonders in keeping me satiated. And its super yummy - just tastes like a hot soup. Opinions welcome.
  • MegDah1, what is this black bean spaghetti? It its anything close enough to the taste of the real thing I'm very interesting in learning more!
