51 years old and ready to change a bit, well a lot.

I've ALWAYS been a big guy (graduated in 1984 6'1" and 245#). Until the last few years I really didn't have the belly I do now. It has been expanding a bit and I want to look better and feel better, so off I go.

Starting weight is 340#, first goal is 325, second is <300, ultimate goal is 245-255 (Dr agrees).

My main problem is that I cook as a hobby, so I love tasting everything. The Dr and I came up with a protein plan with minimal carbs, so we'll see how it goes!

I'm using the journal as something to assist me in this journey, so if it doesn't seem to make sense to you, that would explain why I'm not a famous author.

Keto Dieters, any out there?
First of all, keep on kicking the big C's butt and kn ow that people are rooting for you!

I'm doing the LCHF diet and thus far it's been working for me quite well. Like you, I am missing my fruit and I am sorely missing my Mexican food fix each Saturday morning at the little taqueria down the road!

Peruse the forum posts and you'll begin to see some folks that are following the LCHF Way Of Eating (WOE). Once you see a few that you are interested in following, click on their user name and select to follow them. THis has helped me a LOT.

Good luck with the diet, and keep up the fight!
