  • Kenny not sure who you are asking, my calorie target is 1250. Since I am training for a half marathon, once I get into the more serious training (I have 3 more weeks of base training first) I will up my cals and protein a bit. Someone else here said they also do best at around 1200 calories but that was also a woman. Guys…
  • Welcome, B8049! I don't know who is or isn't but I count calories because I have to do both low carb and watch my calories to lose weight... I like to post my menus for accountability. I don't mind if you don't count calories if you don't mind that I do! hehe but this is not my thread.
  • Just for the sake of accountability, I'm updating that my calories were 1,403 today, 29 total (not net) carbs. I was feeling like I needed to eat a bit more so I did. Because of the exercise I was still under my net calorie target of 1250 according to MFP but I usually do not use exercise calories burned to eat extra food.…

  • I find that an oz of extra sharp white cheddar cheese makes my sweets cravings go away. Even though it isn't sweet.... but if I am actually stomach-growling hungry, it doesn't do the trick
  • I've been doing keto (AKA Atkins, Low Carb, etc) for a very long time and the lower my carbs the more appetite suppression. It also comes and goes. Before this challenge I was up some water weight from celebrating my birthday. The other thing is I don't lose weight if I graze too much even on low carb and I lose really…

  • Welcome, Terrieth21! Once you get used to it, Keto eating out and prep is pretty easy. Especially if you find hotel rooms with a fridge and microwave. People often worry when going out to eat with me if I will be able to eat anything but seriously there are very few places where I can't find ANYTHING on the menu....
