Sleeping on Keto
Can't sleep anymore. I sleep 1 or 2 hours than I'm wired for the rest of the night. I've been reading and it is suggested that I eat my carbs at my night meal. Also a spoonful of raw honey at bedtime. I tried both the last 2 days and finally got 7 hours last night. I still woke up alot, but was able to go back to sleep. Any other suggestions people? I need to sleep straight through for more than an hour at a time.

This is finally working.
Test are back, A1C is 6.1 down from 7.2. Combined cholesterolLaughing is 155, down from 258. This is since March of this year. I haven't lost much weight but these numbers can't be argued with. Keto is working for me.

Oh, the scale moves downward so slow!
Thanks for the pep talk. I have gone down one size in 5 months. I'm not getting the unbelievable weight loss promised by keto, but it's a lose no less.

Oh, the scale moves downward so slow!
Before keto, my scale moved up daily. Now it takes me weeks to go down half a pound. Why is it so hard to lose this weight? My Hubby just went down another size in pants. He is only cutting calories. He eats anything he wants and looses. It is so not fair. I had my blood draw Friday. Sometime this week I will know if 5 months of keto has helped my A1C and triglycerides. Fingers crossed.Question

This is finally working.
The last 3 days I have planned my day of food in the morning. I enter all food I plan for the day in the food diary, then make adjustments to fit into my macros. I'm being exact on my portions too. Less protein is making a difference. Laughing I'm trying to stay under 20% a day. I think I will still keep my carbs super low for now. I don't need them anyway. I have no desire to cheat with so called 'Real food'. My husband is always snacking on junk because I only cook healthy now. He is loosing weight also, even with the candy and other junk he eats.

Ate Keto for Thanksgiving. I can't imagine what I would have gained eating like I use to.
