@Hoovermom   How is the Carb Manager working for you?  I rely on it and faithfully plan and track my food daily.  Without it, it would be all guesswork. This morning, I’m down 80.6 lbs.  Keto works!


@JeanLouiseFinch :   I am doing something wrong and cannot figure it out......oh well.  Congratulations on the weight loss.

@Hoovermom, I wouldn't count calories until you get the hang of eating less than 20 carbs a day and you are not hungry.  I don't think Dr Fung recommends counting calories🤷🏼‍♀️

Hello ladies. I'm thrilled with the Keto WOE. I never had to worry about excess weight until recently (I'm 56). In the last month I have lost 11 pounds. I'm so thrilled. My goal is about 15 more pounds. I want to get off my 2 blood pressure meds, and make my doc. happy. She recommended the Keto WOE, and intermittent fasting. Has anyone tried that? I'm a big breakfast person, so this was weird for me, but it's working. I have Bulletproof coffee (it's not bad, you get used to it) and then don't eat anything until noon. My "eating window" is noon to about 8 p.m. It's strange how you really don't have cravings. I was a huge sweets eater. Usually had 2 chocolate bars in my purse at all times, and granola and faux "healthy snacks" in my desk drawer. I baked a lot. There is something magical about eating whole foods (I'm big on dairy, no low fat, and plenty of cheese and eggs) that keeps you full. To me, the key is not feeling deprived. So my tip for cauiiflower is to use a box cheese grater to get it the right consistency. The store-bought bags of "riced" cauliflower were not small enough pieces. I rely on the "Easy 5-ingregient Keto Cookbook." Good luck, everyone!

Has anyone tried Chia Seed Pudding?  I made my first batch this morning.  For the liquid, I used half unsweetened almond milk and half HWC.  OMG, it's so creamy and delicious, and tastes like rice pudding!

I used to mix the chia seeds into some Premiere protein chocolate shake.

I make chia pudding all the time. One can coconut milk, 1-2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 1-2 packets stevia, 1-2 tbsp coconut flakes, and 1/4 cup chia seeds. Delicious.
