I'm the same as James. no quota of water i drink when i'm thirsty. and i have to say, i've never paid the extra for grass fed anything. i know the powers that be like to tout it, but i cant afford it and i did fine without paying the extra for it. if you can afford it thats great!! but if you cant, regular is just fine, too.

DELIGHTFULDEE3,
why are you struggling to drink enough water? Do you have some sort of quota of glasses of water to drink? I can tell you that I don't. I just drink when I eat, or when I'm thirsty, or because I like it. But I have no quota.

The 6% list is very insightful and helpful. Still trying to get used to using butter generously, eating bacon, chicken with skin on and all the cheese...but I am enjoying them! Trying to balance that with low carb veggies.

I've really have had to change my lifestyle since deciding to do Keto. I was not one who did a lot of cooking because I live alone. But, I have been cooking everyday. My grocery list has changed and that grass-fed hamburger and butter is delicious. Everyday I'm looking at new recipes on Pinterest. I sometimes struggle with drinking enough water but I'm trying to do better. emoticon

BEACH_DREAMER,
you've seen the 6% list in the team room, so that provides you with a list of veggies to hunt for. If you find something you like while shopping, and its not on your list, then go home and research it, and if it fits Keto, then maybe next time.

Yes chicken with the skin! Yes! Bacon! Yes!

Finally made it to the market and stocked up on keto friendly staples. Great to be able to mix up the menu a little bit. I was getting SO sick of eggs & sausage every morning. Had bacon this morning for the first time in AGES and O M G --- it was delicious. Tonight for dinner I am actually going to have chicken with the skin ON. . . also something I missed when I was on a "healthy" diet plan. HaHa.

Halfway through week 2 and loving it.

You're never too old to dream new dreams --- and have them come true.

. . . Hugs, Kathleen
