balancing a diet of meats and vegetables (including fruits) and moderation is essential with exercise and the amount of food you consume.
you can have some alcohol (beer or wine) But not a lot (1 beer or small glass of wine a day) will not harm you or adversely affect your sugar levels
but your medications must also be taken into consideration

i should know, I'm a cardiac patient and an n.i.d. type 2 diabetic

I generally follow the South Beach which is very similar to your post. Except I like a few suds on the weekends.

The original book starts out with Dr Agatson explaining exactly how sugars and refined carbs affect your body and why they cause weight gain and bad blood chemistry. I recommend to anyone just for that part alone.

What I found is that once you do without the bad stuff for awhile, the cravings to have it disappears.

Also it's important to eat a healthy lean protien breakfast.
thanks @Signal1.

I may be full keto, I don't eat bread of any kind, absolutely nothing that is a starch. Like if we go to a mexican restaurant, I will get a taco salad, with chicken, I wont eat one chip, or one bite of that yummy taco salad bowl, you know..the kind that is made out of a taco shell..haha.

Today, I will eat a ham and cheese omlete for breakfast, with black coffee.

Lunch, will be a spinach salad with oil and vinegar dressin (no croutons), with water

Snack, (around 2:30pm) will be a few slices of deer venison summer sausage

dinner, small bowl of chili, with sour cream, cheese, and a fresh avocado.


Signal1, you are right also that the sugar cravings have really subsided, and I feel that I am too far into my new lifestyle to go back to anything else. I feel better, and like this morning, it is a great feeling to put on pants that are not tight. haha

That menu sounds good. I do have some dessert, my daughter bakes, so I don't won't to not sample some of her work. As a whole I don't have much trouble skipping it. I love Chipotle and I miss burritos too.

actually, my wife found a recipe for keto bombs. A dessert snack for people on the keto diet.

I think it goes something like this:

cream cheese

organic peanut butter

coconut

chill in fridge

then get some DARK chocolate chips and melt them

scoop the cream cheese/peanut butter/coconut into little balls

then drizzle dark chocolate over them.

here's the link

That I might have to try. Stop it, you're making me hungry... Probably a few others too.
