    I don't read your thread very often but it would be nice to understand why you are keeping this WOE for so long. Any particular reason ?
    I think it is healthier as a way to live permanently. That's the reason. Ketones are healthier in your system, and it's better to be running mostly on ketones.

    • had some home made pate, some butter tea, sausages, nuts...and for dinner, shrimp (wild) and salad greens with egg.

      I still think I'm eating too many nuts...

      • Nuts are fortunately self-limiting for me. I don't like the way they get stuck in my teeth!

        • The only "nuts" I can eat without it being an issue are peanuts (yes, I know they aren't nuts). I think I have a nut allergy. They cause my asthma to flare up and I get itchy.

          • I've been attending a conference.

            So I've had more coffee than normal and no tea.

            And I have had about zero carbs but a cheesecake at a restaurant twice in a row, figure 30g per day, still low, and probably quite ketogenic still I think. Eggs, bacon, sausage yesterday, and salad and chicken, and fish for dinner with asparagus.

            • Nice. I like how easily you stayed keto in a non-keto world!

                thanks! It's with your help and everyone on here that makes it much easier.

                Keto is a blast really. But you can't be excessively rigid, at least after you've gotten into it enough not to have "unnatural cravings."

                I was pretty good before, being grain free and bean free for months when i started vlc. I still think in retrospect I went fully keto too fast. But in any event, I find now I can be a little flexible. I don't feel strong cravings or like bingeing. It took some time to get here but I'm here.

                I get a stop before I eat too much, instantly, and I don't feel like going overboard, or eating a lot of desserts. I have to maintain a bit of discipline but it isn't hard anymore.

                • ate like a pig on Sunday, with guest from out of town. The only real cheats were some fried things with light breading, and half a flan dessert.

                  Yesterday I ate vlc again and no ill effects.

                  • welcome back, I say.

                    I was traveling ouside the USA.

                    I didn't eat any grains to speak of or beans. I did go off my diet. I even ate some ice cream now and again.

                    When I got back home, I weighed myself and I am 4 pounds lighter!

                    Weird. The only thing I can think of is that I walked a huge amount, was very active, and I didn't eat any nuts the whole time. Maybe nuts keep me from losing more weight.

                    Oh, and I broke my foot! Ouch! When I got home, not on the trip.

                    Anyway, back to VLC but this time I'm tapering a bit more gradually. I don't want the carb flu. I ate a few pieces of fruit yesterday and also am doing the same today.

                    • Ah, I was wondering where you were!

                      Welcome home!

                      I always lose weight when I travel.

                      • I've been eating low carb not vlc. I had a peach and some berries. And today a bit of honey. That's it though, along with some nuts, chicken salad, grass fed hotdogs, and now for dinner some fish and some non carby vegetable.

                        I am avoiding carb flu this way...

                        • I've been eating VLC again with a piece of fruit or maybe two. That seems to be working very well.

                          Meanwhile I am healing very fast from a fractured fifth metatarsal, taking 50,000 units of D3 and 4mg of K2 every day. Seems to be working well.
