Last week I started Keto. I did a lot of research and figured I have to do something and this looks like my best option. I didn't know how I would adjust as I love my carbs and sweets but I am pleasantly surprised how easy I am finding it. I am not figuring out exactly the macros as I wanted to see how I would find the meal plans. It took me awhile to start as I was quite apprehensive but I am glad I finally took the plunge. Right now I am just making sure the food is low carb and since I still crave sweets I am eating celery with peanut butter. I know peanut butter isn't that keto friendly but it is a lot better than the sweet stuff I was eating, also I am just eating it to get me over the hump of the first week or two then will start tracking everything. I am starting my 2nd week and do think I am getting around a bit better than I was.

I hope everyone has a great week and I hope all my American friends had a great memorial weekend. emoticon

    A great choice. I have little dabs of peanut butter on squares of dark chocolate as my treats. Each square of dark chocolate (85% cocoa) is about 2 grams of carbs, and a little bit of peanut butter on top adds about 1 gram. Two of those make 6 grams, which I have on some days.

    But starting Keto, and cutting carbs from lets say 150 down to 30 or 40 at the start is fantastic. It is amazing that the North American adult average is 330 grams a day.

    You do whatever it takes, you find your own path.

    Good for you for making a change & trying to be your best self. Keto is not easy. I’m back on recently but do have days where I find it a challenge. Try natural peanut butter or make your own perhaps, or almond butter. Read, read, read - best of luck
