Welcome @DVA
You’ve chosen to join the best board around. Full of great people with nothing but good advice and friendly banter.


#22

Less than 30g carbs is definitely gonna be hard for me to get used to, lol. I will give it a shot though, thanks again for the substantial advice @SemperFi. I appreciate the info as I haven’t seen that anywhere else before!

Thank you for the welcome @Swest, @MPG, @Islandswole, @MBTJR1980, @TrenGod, @Czworeczki.

I noticed on your profile it says freerunner, are you still actively doing so?


#24

I’m not as active as I used to be but I have every intention of getting back up to peak performance. :slight_smile:

@DVA If you have the need to satisfy a sweet tooth I have great recipes. Pancakes, cheesecake, berry pie, cauliflower crusted pizza, etc. All no sugar added and very low carb. I use monk fruit crystals as a sweetener.

Did you see I said ‘cheese cake’? :wink: Good source of fat and protein.

If you experience carb cravings at night look at the benefits of l-glutamine. It is very helpful for those addictive sugar cravings and even alcohol cravings.

Youtube the video - Sugar; The bitter truth. One hour long but worth a watch.

Don’t get trapped in following everything I say. I simply love a ketogenic lifestyle because all the personal health benefits for me personally as a cancer survivor. There are other diets just as effective to help you reach your goals.


#26

Share the recipes lol. My wife is always looking for things.


#27

I’m with you @TrenGod… this whole time and he hasn’t shared one! Feed us fat asses!


#28

Kudos to you, I tried getting into a few years back and failed epically


#29

@TrenGod @Islandswole I will start a ketogenic diet recipe section in the near future…BEFORE the holidays! :wink: I am bulking so you guys wont see me carb free until February 2019. :sunglasses:

Everyone of us deserves to be our best. That is why we are here. We all get to celebrate in the success of other members and I am glad that you get to share in mine. I hope I will get to share in yours~


#34

Omg, this came at a perfect time!! Ever since I started this meal plan the sugar cravings skyrocketed, and I lost to a basket of chocolate a few days ago. Cheesecake is my kryptonite. Do you have a recipe for macarons??

Since I started keto my mood and mental clarity vastly improved too so I agree with you 100%.


#35

Welcome @dva glad to have you here.


#36

More than one. :crazy_face: I will post recipes as I have time in the near future.


#37

my goals are different … I am doing a recomp I don’t actually want to lose weight and high fat diets… they just make me fat … I d be lying if I said I didn’t want my fat macro back up to 90 but it wasn’t working for me and I was in dead stall for about 12 weeks … eating 3200 calories 220 protien 300 carbs 90 fat … when something quits working or doesn’t show results it gets thrown out and I do something different

I think I might be contacting you privately for a banner :wink:
