    I tried intermittent fasting and that seemed to work well to maintain (I was hoping to lose more). I tried to eat from 11-7ish and that was usually okay. It’s tough though. I was working out a fair amount too and the scale didn’t change much. I also just tracked what I ate during the week, keeping it around 2200 cals. Weekends were always a crapshoot where I wouldn’t watch it as much, put on a few lbs, lose it during the week, rinse, repeat.

    I started back on Keto 2 weeks ago and am down about 8 lbs. Eventual goal is 220ish, after starting at 263 around the new year, with a 3 month break starting in April. Keto has been far more effective than any other thing I tried.

    i stopped keto like 4 months back and just do a low carb diet and continue working out like i had been. haven't gained anything back and actually lost another couple of pounds. my diet consists of still eating p much everything i did under keto, but i add in sandwiches, occasionally some rice/pasta. i just don't eat any sweets, any fries/chips/etc, don't drink much beer (prob 2bottles a week), and i only snack on nuts/legumes/cheese/meat. i prob take in about 50g net carbs a day on the low end, and sometimes i hit over 100. i also make a fuck ton of tacos using those 5g net carb taco wraps and they're great.

    edit: i also intermittent fast occasionally. prob once a week i'll do like 20hrs or so. eat dinner at around 7pm, and won't eat again until like 2pm

    I already intermittently fast I typically eat between 12-7 most days. I’m just not hungry at breakfast usually.

    Also not a beer drinker, I enjoy bourbon so that’s made this a lot easier for sure.

    I honestly haven’t worked out at all on keto, but I’ll likely start working in some cardio as I step into just a lower carb diet.

    For those of you that just modified to lower carb, is there a number you tried to stay under on a daily basis after exiting keto?

    I would weigh myself 2 times a week and just see what the scale was doing. If I was a few lbs higher, tighten things up a bit and track more. If you are where you want to be, no sense in tracking and paying attention to all these things when you aren’t putting on anything.

    I’ve been pretty anal about the tracking, it helps me keep a routine and keeps me accountable which is helpful for me. I think having some sort of target would be helpful for me to at least have as a daily goal.

    This is basically what I do now. Except I still don't eat any bread, pasta, starchy vegetables, or any grains. I don't track as close and don't care how many berries, carrots, or tomatoes I eat within reason.

    fuck cardio. lift weights. i noticed much better results when i stopped focusing on cardio and just started lifting instead (with the occasional cardio)

    i p much stopped counting carbs when i stopped keto, i just try not to eat really carb-heavy meals. i just eat a bunch of vegetables and protein, with the occasional sandwich/grain mixed in periodically.

    I’m looking forward to the occasional splurge, I really miss pizza and the occasional French fry.

    One thing the diet has helped me get a much better handle on is how much I need to eat to get full, and stopping. I also cold turkey quit soda which I very much enjoy and have replaced it with low carb alternatives like bai’s and other 2 carbs or so drinks which fill that craving for me. So continuing the no soda will be big for me as well.

    I approached it deferent than the rest of you I beleive. I didn't step on a scale before, during, or after being strict keto. Too many variables in what the scale could say and not worth stressing over a couple pounds this way or that way. Look good, feel good, don't be a slave to sugar, buy smaller pants, fuck the rest.

    I weigh daily but with the understanding that I fluctuate a couple of pounds between the evening and the morning. It helps me make sure I’m staying on target and helps me visualize goals too, which for me is a help.

    Cool to see how it works different ways for different people, but at the end of the day the main thing is that it works.

    After the fat-filled flavor of keto, slow carb was a challenge.

    Working on my post-keto planning, since once I hit goal I’m still needing some body reshaping.

    Cardio is mostly for your lungs and heart health. To loose weight and inches diet and strength training is most important with diet being 80% of the equation. I like cardio but for me it’s mostly for my mental health.

    I am down about 13 lbs thru 3 weeks on my second round through currently. Went paint balling today in 90 degree heat for a few hours and a bunch of dudes went to BWW after. Went bunless for the burger but they included fries. Couldn’t resist and got ice cream on the way home, which was totally necessary to cool me down. Second cheat meal in 3 weeks.

    Chugged two huge glasses of water when I got home and will fast till noon tomorrow.

    Down 30 lbs in all. Feeling great.

    Never tried their regular pizzas but Blaze Pizza now has keto crust. Playing with the nutritional calculator you can make a couple pretty good looking pizzas for less than 10 net per half pizza and as few as 5-6 net carbs per half a pizza. Select the keto or the protein pizza to start.

    The triangle.

    It is pretty good but I would do a few things differently next time. Ditch the jalapenos as I thought they would be fresh instead of pickled. Ditch the smoked ham because why the fuck is it just slices of ham?

    Definitely filled a craving though.

    Next time I'll go spicy sauce, sausage, pep, salami, both mozzarellas, parm, and red onion. And need to try just pepperoni. I would imagine it's best eaten there as well right out of the oven because I brought it straight home and it was losing its crispiness already. I ate the whole damn thing however because I was doing a dinner to dinner fast from last night. No ragrets.

    I was legit mad when I opened it. Why in the hell would you do that? It was still good though. I put the last three pieces in the toaster oven and they were legit when crispy.

    174629C7-9EEC-40B8-B8B6-EB582C5F648A.jpeg Also, these sauces are great. Great fat content and flavorful.

    I have tried the Buffalo Ranch on pretty much everything. 19 grams of fat per serving and less than 1 carb. There were a few other flavors that should also have high fat content.

    These also had good numbers

    love that the diet has forced us to have more meals at home

    went to huhot (chain mongolian bbq) and had their zucchini noodles and they weren’t bad at all

    would recommend to those that have one near them

    Here is the label from the Buffalo Ranch. And the Buffalo isn’t overpowering. I throw this on some broccoli florets and sausage cooked in butter and it’s terrific.
