    That's kinda where I'm at. Even though I want to stay low carb most of the time, I think I'd be happier if I allowed myself 2-3 days each week to cycle in more carbs. Not carbage, but sweet potatoes,...

    Finally found my will power and I've been full back at it for just over a week now. I've found that tracking what I'm eating really helps - as does Instagram. I post photos of my food and that helps...

    Exactly!

    Going into my staff room at work is like asking an alcoholic to go to all their work lunches and social functions at a bar.

    I'm inclined to think our ancestors were probably in ketosis during the winter and on a low-carb (by modern standards, probably 50-150g/day), but not VLC diet in the spring and summer.

    1) The gluten upsets my digestion and causes a return of my IBS-D symptoms. It is a dose response for me, so trace amounts don't bother...

    That was a fail.

    I hated the side effects of the medicine - mostly the dry mouth and dizziness - so I never filled the second script. Besides that, though it helped some with appetite suppression...
