Pretty low carb, really high fat


Fairly strict low carb/moderate protein/high fat diet is basically all there is to it. Once you get in the groove of it - which I admit can be hard - it's so easy you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

And just wait until your next bloodwork comes back from the lab! :)

More Pretty low carb, really high fat Info

mmoodd69's top tips

1.KNOW YOUR BLOOD SUGAR. Buy a glucometer and test various foods to see what sets off your insulin and what doesn't (you might be surprised at what you learn, I was).
2.Aim for ketosis and aim to stay there. If you reduce carbs (and you probably need to if you have any insulin issues), increase good fats all the more. If you don't, you'll suffer needlessly. Ask me how I know. Go on, ask me.
3.Avoid bad fats and oils. Do your own research on what these are and get in the habit of reading labels...they're everywhere. (Hint: don't believe the wild-eyed vegans...meat and saturated fat are your friends, but ONLY if you're low carb).
4.Avoid excess protein - it can turn to sugar and stall weight loss. Learn exactly how much your body needs a day, in grams.
5.If your body needs a change, it'll tell you by putting on a little extra weight even if you haven't changed a thing. In that case, and ONLY then, should you consider restricting calories. Otherwise, when you're in ketosis and maintaining it, you'll only eat until you're not hungry and it won't take much to get there. Snacking and cravings will never enter your mind.
6.If you fall off the wagon, get back on. The key factor to any diet is the same key factor to any other struggle for victory: mental toughness, resilience and resolution based on sure knowledge of what you've proved works for you. Once you have that info, hit the ground running and don't look back.
