Thanks, I will look for something similar at the app store.
Shens, no such thing.Too much weight.
How did you know you were in ketosis? You've gone from a Standard American Diet (SAD) to 1200 calories a day? That almost sounds like a crash diet to me and they're more interested in results (for their reputation) than in a sustainable lifestyle.I just got started on a doctor supervised diet and I'm in ketosis. I'm in about 2 weeks now, using the program food exclusively. They have me on about 1200 calories. I walk or treadmill every day so far for exercise, and need to get some small weights to get started there.
I used to bicycle so my goal is to get on the bike later this spring.
My wife and I are dieting together and for now the house is contraband-free
Keto would be perfect for you!!! One word of warning: If you're going to do it, make sure and stick to it quite rigorously. It is even more dangerous to half-heartedly do keto because you're adding a lot of fat to your diet and if you don't decrease the carbs significantly, that's a lot of calories and the combination of high fat and moderate to high carbs can send your triglycerides and cholesterol through the roof (I'm talking from experience).How much weight are you trying to loose ? I have been looking into Keto but I am not sure if its safe for me being type 2 diabetic on metformin. I carried a large umbilical hernia the size of a cantaloupe for eight years because no surgeon dared to repair it. In that eight years I gained 105 pounds carrying around 305 pounds. Finally with a new surgical mesh introduced last year. I was able to get the hernia repaired this summer. Now working hard to loose the pounds and down to 270, another 90 to go.. Doing 10K steps a day and trying to keep under 2K in calories and consume very low carbs.
I hate that: "food is an addiction".I know. I started this with less information and I got myself informed.
The crux of any diet is what happens as you taper off and go to regular food, and I plan on excelling at that.
I have reached a place similar to when I quit drinking 26 years ago. I am so done with mindless eating.
Being a geek at heart and spending a lot of time at the keyboard, believe me when I tell you that regular food as I knew it is a thing of my past.
I am already researching things that I can make and like to eat that are good for us. I do like to cook so I consider this "challenge accepted" .
I ate fast foods @~1000 calories a meal, sometimes more than once a day, and had a dinner on top of that on many days. I could down half a pizza, once again mindlessly.
This part is not going to be easy by any means, as food addiction is far stronger than alcohol or any other dependency/behavior aberration.
It's helpful to read the dates on posts. This was started more than a year ago, and I went on my own diet after 3 months of great results. Keto started me off on a good path.How did you know you were in ketosis? You've gone from a Standard American Diet (SAD) to 1200 calories a day?

Are you still doing keto? Where is your weight at now?

I lost about 50 on Keto and another 35 on a low carb ~ 1700 calorie diet.
While on keto I was weighed, counceled, and tested weekly and had blood work done prior to and monthly during the diet.
I just got tired of the monotony of the keto.
From my all time low I first gained back 5, that went stable for about 5 months, and now I am up 10.
