I want to start my keto diet again but I think it'll be easier if I can gripe, laugh, cry, etc with others who understand. I'm thinking May 1st. Anyone willing to diet with me? It doesn't have to be keto, that's just my plan. We can do weekly check-ins to be sure we stay on track.

I will give it a go. Not sure if I will do Keto. I may pull out my old South Beach diet book. I think it's pretty similar.

Okay, I started today. Eggs for breakfast, instead of toast with peanut butter, and I avoided the sweets that were by the coffee. Plan to make a recipe from a diabetic magazine for dinner. Oh, and I am drinking extra water.

Just remember that your LDL and Chol with rise sharply. If you are at risk for vlockage or already have these issues be aware. 

I am doing a modified Keto at 60-80 G CHO/Day myself. So far lost 37 lbs in lack 6 months with a cheat day every 2 weeks. My Chol jumped from 86 to 116 in 2 moths. Donating blood next week to see how it has changed.

I have lost 1 pound in a week. Avoiding carbs, lots of veg, no ETOH. And increasing walking, and core strengthening.

Keep on keeping on, and I wish you all success. I tried a bottle of the veto capsules with my regular diabetic diet, and only lo\sty 2 lbs. but I aim to try again in the future. I just got discouraged, and want to be ready before I try again.

I'm doing Atkins, again.  Lost 3 pounds so far, jeans are not as tight, tummy not bloated. 

Today:  3 egg omelete with sharp cheddar cheese for brunch.  I bought a rotisserie chicken, sauteed Brussels Sprouts, onion, fresh green beans together for dinner. 

Had sugar-free lime jello for dessert with 2 tbs of whipped cream. 

I donate blood this Monday.

I'm sticking to my low carb plan that I've been on for 18 months. I stick to around 60 g of carbs per day, and I don't eat any refined carbs.   I'm at my goal weight.  I've found that maintenance is a lot harder than losing.  I cannot do keto.  All the fat upsets my stomach and my lipids go crazy.  Good luck to all!
