  • Well done! I did this day too... nearly didn’t get the last set of 11 out 🥵 but it’s pretty exciting to be improving!!! Thanks for keeping us all motivated 🥰

  • Day 3 done: 8, 10, 7, ,7, 10 This day was so much harder than the previous ones! Barely got the last set of 10 out. I hope I can keep up with the increasing sets!!

  • Ooooooh, whoops! That makes sense, I couldn’t understand how you kept going to strongly day after day 😄 I’m very sore! Alright, so I’ll rest today then 👍🏼

  • Just following along with what you’re doing, jowo, did day 1: 6,6,4,4,7!

  • Congratulations, what great results! I am on day 4 of fasting 20 hours / eating window 4 hours. I did 16/8 most of the time for the last 2 years but found I would struggle around food for those 8 hours during my eating window. Now I feel calm and 'normal' around food and can make rational decisions about what I want to put…
  • Tackle your mind. Mentally refocus on the “feeling” or state of being that you’re after. How empowered you feel when you’re consistently making the right choices, for example, or how good you feel when you stick with low carb and are no longer a slave to cravings. I refocus on these positive states I’m after each day and…
  • I add a tablespoon of coconut oil, some cinnamon, raw cacao and half tsp of stevia and find that it, surprisingly, tastes better than cream (but same caloric content and less carbs) and I used to only like it milky/creamy, might be worth a try...?
  • What a great question :) Yes, same for me: eating a bunch of sugar and feeling like I've downed a bottle of tequilla, gross. My best moments are when I've gone over my calorie goals through indulging in yummy though low carb foods and the scales show a loss the next day! Most of the time I can trust my hunger signals when…
  • Am I correct to conclude that "Banting" is the same as "LCHF"??
  • Yes, I'm with you! I also went off the rails, for 10 days even though I wasn't planning to, and I went back to cravings all sorts and sleeping crappily, skin outbreaks, feeling hungry. Back to it for 3 days also, and on track to losing the 2kg's I gained in those 10 days. It's so nice not to feel despondent about the gain…
  • Congratulations @retirehappy!! Love the sunnies @chinatowninchina B)
  • I agree, low carbers seem particularly chilled out and supportive! Merry Christmas! I'm aiming to focus on the people part of today, and connecting with family, instead of food taking the limelight <3
  • Hm... bed spins... I wonder what that's about. So good you're feeling great though! I had a drink a night for years and have suddenly been able to stop that about 4 weeks ago since upping my fat intake drastically. I sleep so much better! Merry Christmas everyone! B) I'm in Australia so we've started already!
  • Haha, Carbpocalypse B) Yes, prepare! Had to organise two kids birthday parties in one week and Xmas hasn't even started. My only downfalls were during the baking of cakes, having batter on my hands, sweets all around... the parties themselves I prepare for by having a high fat/ protein meal beforehand. Crazy how I can then…
  • Are you eating low carb, or LCHF? I don't want to be fanatic who thinks there is only ONE right way of eating, but it might just be the thing that allows you to stop logging and craving altogether. Fat is crazy like that, and perhaps it's worth a try if low carb itself doesn't seem easy sustainable long-term, because it…
  • Thanks for the feedback! I was a bit freaked out after my experience with the sugar-hangover and worried that having a few drinks would be even worse! I might fill a water bottle with vodka, sparkling water, lime, stevia and SALT, great tip @tcunbeliever. Fingers crossed I'm like you and two drinks will be all I want! And…
  • @elize7 you can do this! Perhaps make a treat for yourself (or better, buy it) that fits in your plan and isn't high carb. Something you genuinely enjoy. Your body will probably feel better and more satisfied and your mind will follow. I freeze some coconut oil with a bit of cacao and stevia and this usually takes care of…
  • Such great, supportive and non-judgemental attitudes on here, both from the people happy to splurge during the holidays and the ones preparing to stay on track. I had my first sugar splurge two days ago when preparing for my son's birthday party (no, I'm not just serving the kids rolled up salami and no cake) and I had…
  • I'm enjoying everyone's updates, good to know we're all trying to get through the next few weeks without crashing! I have marked a 1.2kg loss in total since starting low carb and higher fat 3 or 4 weeks ago. I'm very happy with that. I have eaten a LOT in the last week but the scales are very slowly moving down. After…
  • @anglyn1 "make an effort to communicate with friends to improve mood" - such a good insight. We need connections to feel happy, yet it's so much easier to close ourselves off. I've reached a new milestone: didn't have (or feel like) birthday cake at a birthday over the weekend but I had a few strawberries instead, and they…
  • @JodehFoster I want that! Dinner tonight was keto spinach and goat cheese pie (recipe from dietdoctor.com), which tasted insanely good!!
  • @baconslave how are you feeling today, any better? Yes, Xmas needs to be freezing and preferably white! Thanks for your reply. Had to read the first few sentences a few times. Fat cells holding water waiting for a signal that it can handle the change... interesting! I read up on some of the science behind LCHF but hadn't…
  • @baconslave sending you a feel better hug! I'm with you on not being in the Christmas spirit much. It's ridiculously hot here (Australia) which kind of leaves little space for Xmas atmosphere! After 3 weeks of finding it super easy on lower and lower carb high fat I've found myself increasingly hungry over the last few…
  • @bozmo Good luck with trying IF! I did IF for 6 months without low carb and it was hard! Now I'm doing it with low carb it's ridiculously easy... I only do 16/8, it sounds like you'll do 20/4 but does you keto coffee have fats? If so, that will officially break your fast. Whatever works for you to stay under your calorie…
  • Wow, so it's a sour and spicy popsicle... interesting!
  • They look beautiful! Perhaps this is self-explanatory if you're from the US but I have no idea what the ingredients are. Pickles? As in gherkins??
  • @elize7 how flattering, the old flame! I bet you'll feel better without alcohol. I am amazed at how much my sleep has improved even though I used to only have 1 drink a night. @Chillycatmum that's inspiring, that you're persevering even though it's hard! Love your blue hair, by the way :) @rparkerslim "don't nothing fail…
  • I hope I can join in... I was too shy to post straight away because I've only just seriously started on lower carb and high fat a few weeks ago (after slowly working up to it for months) and I thought perhaps it was too good to be true... My targets: ✔️3 litres water a day ✔️Fasting 16 hours a day ✔️30min FitnessBlender…
  • You rock, that's such a awesome result!!
