    You'll be fine. Just make sure you load up on fats.

    Yep. You getting enough salt and electrolytes? Grab those little things of mio. It’s what I use.

    Not that it really matters, but "light keto" isn't a ketogenic diet. It's just a reduced carb diet. To be "keto," the goal is ketosis.

    Also, the single serving chicken bone broth are really helpful for this. They are satiating enough to curb a snack hunger and provide a lot of electrolytes and other minerals

    Thinking of starting this. My only hang up is that i have high blood pressure. Im 30 and a couple years ago it was about 165, I have worked it down to about 125 with cardio and beta blockers, I just don't want it to go back up.

    I've never been too overweight, im 64 225 which is my heaviest, id just like to get down to around 200. Anybody monitor their blood pressure with this or have any insight about blood pressure specifically? Thanks for all the info dudes.

    64 225 seems normal, why such high blood pressure?

    From my experience, it has a positive impact on blood pressure. Of course, that may be from losing weight.

    yeah for the most part, i need to be better. but usually what i don’t enter is the random cheese stick i’ll grab or how much coconut milk i actually used, stuff like that. i’m usually in the 14-19 range per day according to that

    as I said before, I went 4 days all meat just to jump start and I think it (originally) worked.

    no idea man, probably a combination of things added in it runs in my family. i started working out, beta blockers, slowed down on drinking and it came down pretty quick.

    i've never been overweight but id still like to lose a few pounds I just have to monitor what this would do to my blood pressure.

    I might be underthinking the fast thing. I just do coffee and water from wake up to lunch, eat lunch, mix in a few snacks (jerky, pork rinds, or veggies), eat dinner at 6pm. After 6pm drinks with a sugar free mixer and water. Rinse and repeat.

    I wouldn't count your fast as starting until after the post-dinner drinks are done. At least I don't.

    Yeah there are all kinds of thoughts out there. When I fast I do only water and black coffee. Some say the black coffee doesn't count but IDGAF about that, still works for me.

    Also, once you get pretty far in ketone levels will decrease bc your body will stop over producing them

    fuck no. Trying to lose weight, tell people “sorry I’m Keto,” and gain energy. No time for health concerns.

    So I had 11.5 net carbs so far today. How bad is it if I have zero carbs for dinner but 10 carbs worth of red wine?
