Miraculum's Journal, 22 February 2019

A NSV, despite exceeding 20g net carbs/day! As the professional sources I'm reading say, combining LCHF and intermittent fasting (IF) is changing my shape even as my weight-loss progress has slowed.

A month ago, I was thrilled to be able to zip/button (and breathe in!) my size 20W jeans (my chosen waist barometer). Now, I can pull them on and off without even unbuttoning and unzipping them! YIPPEE!

I await my first meal of the day, a 16.9-oz. bottle of water and a "#17 Jersey Mike's Famous Philly Tub" (a breadless cheesesteak sub). I never *loved* sub rolls but ate part them, untoasted, anyway. This version is just the LCHF ticket, tasty and satisfying but not carby. My husband and I love them!

Oh my goodness, breadless cheese steak sub sounds wonderful. Where do you buy them? I always hated the sour-dough bread, but love the stuffing (meat, onions, mushrooms, peppers and cheese).

What wonderful progress. Congratulations!!!!! IF and KETO is a power combo. I have come to the same conclusion

Okay, now I feel stupid. Jersey Mike's is a sub sandwich shop, not a brand product you can purchase at the local market...I looked it up. Duh! I really gotta get off the farm more often!

@To145, I count 46 states and the District of Columbia among the Jersey Mike's Sub Shop locations listed on their website. I hope one of those states is where you live! Find yours at https://www.jerseymikes.com/locations/all

@To145, Philly Cheesesteaks aren't served on sourdough bread in NC/SC (or where I'm originally from, Western New York). It's a regular (white or wheat) submarine sandwhich roll. There are no Jersey Mike's in WNY, though. They're all in the eastern part of the state: NYC (Manhattan and the Boroughs), Long Island, Albany, etc.
