Seabunny you can do it!! I started low carb a year and a half ago - then transitioned into keto when I realized I still had too many carbs in my diet. That was 15 months ago. It's a very sustainable way of living and eating. After awhile, longer for some than others, you will not even want to eat the old food. Then you will know you can do it for life.

Hi everyone I'm in the UK and am starting my 1st day of Keto/Low Carb. My shopping just arrived & the contents of my fridge look so wrong! I've been following law fat diest for about 10 years and got nowhere. So this is all so strange to me. I know it works for others so I'm hoping it will become a way of life & weightloss for me too!

Your messages to Danae are helpful to me, a long time Atkins follower. Actually, I started low carb with "the Drinking Man's diet." I recently looked thru his recipes, and found oldies but goodies.

its really important at first to fuel yourself often. dont worry about any macros but carbs. keep them under 20 g total.
eat fat and protein. if its a pound of bacon so be it...once you get the carbs out of your system you can work on the other things.

Thank you all for the welcome, support and feed back. Today is going better, I think yesterday waited to long to eat (was busy with life). I am slowly getting in to the habit of this way of eating so I do not post much but I am reading as I go.

Hello Danae - it does get better, easier, and more a way of life rather than a diet. Stick with it - you will be glad you did!! Make sure you get your electrolytes in.

Hello everyone, I am just coming back to SP and trying Keto for the first time. I have done other low-carb plans before but it was not the time. I wanted to eat whatever I wanted more than I wanted to change my habits. A Dr. that I follow said one time that sometimes we just need a break away from dieting and I notice that I was always thinking about "good and bad" foods and never enjoying it no matter my weight. I enjoyed getting to my top weight and see that I could stay there for almost a year eating freely.

One day I woke up and I guess I was ready and came back to SP.
Today is my day 7 on Keto and it was a hard day. I think it was because I had my first meal to late or just normal Keto Flu. I have being a little bit tired the past couple of days but today!!! oh man was a killer. Felt nauseous, shaky and did not want to eat my dinner.

SP friends were really encouraging and that helped a lot. I made bone broth (did not like that but I drank it. Tomorrow I will buy the powerade zero. Right now I am feeling much better. I took a nap and had dinner.

I am grateful that I do not have to do this alone and that there is a lot of experience here.
Thank you. emoticon
