Staying fit is all about mindset man, if you define a goal it is easier for you to not get lost. In regards to nutrition, there is an awesome app called "My fitness Pal", that will help you keep track of calories and your progress and you can work out anywhere you want, don`t even need to go to a gym.

This has become a zombie thread and my weight loss has been ping pong. I admit, calorie counting was getting tiresome and I wasnít feeling better otherwise. The changes certainly werenít being seen in my energy levels or waistline, so this week Iím dipping my toe in the Paleo diet pool. So far Iíve cut out buns on burgers and chicken breast - opting instead for wrapping the protein with green leaf lettuce and a big slice of tomatoes. No ketchup but Iíve allowed myself mayo. No french fries or potato chips and no ice cream bars either. Iím not eating completely healthy though. So far snacks include Nutella and pretzel sticks and little Dove chocolates (dark chocolate with almond) but I also have grapes and strawberries to distract myself with.

For exercise, Iím sticking with a 3 mile 1 Hour Walk, where I listen to podcasts on my phone for motivation.

So far, here are the numbers over the past week. Iím down from 205 to 201 yesterday and 200.4 this morning. Iím going to refrain on celebrating though. These are numbers only - though Iím looking forward to seeing that ď2__Ē go away and only briefly see ď19_Ē and ď18_Ē before getting to someplace where my pants and wedding ring fit again.

Until then, I still have the roll in the middle and I still wake up feeling tired with sore feet. I need to sleep better, so I have more adjustments to make.

Big thing to help energy is cut sugar out, at least for me. Good luck, man!

I agree, but not all sugar - and certainly some sugar substitutes are just as bad. The first thing I cut out was diet soda. Next was ice cream. Nutella, then cereal is going to have to go away but the dark chocolate supposedly has health benefits - so long as I enjoy it in moderation. The fruits are a no-brainer, though I'm told that grapes and raisins are not the best fruit to choose. Bananas may be making a comeback, though I'm thinking yogurt parfaits might be a better choice.

Right, I should have said refined sugar and things that have it. Blueberries are awesome. There's a ton of info, it's just tough sorting through the noise to find the signal. ;)

I have found that exogenous ketones help during the first few weeks with energy levels. They taste disgusting but keep me from losing steam by noon on the initial keto induction. The extra salts seem to keep the "keto-flu" from being too severe.

This morningís report: 199.4 pounds before the ďmorning constitutional.Ē Without getting overly detailed, I can happily report that creation of dairy has brought about the return of regularity!

Supper last night OTOH was at 8pm and I was bad: lemon chicken lean cuisine. Blech! Breakfast was two hard boiled eggs and 2 cups Of warm green tea sweetened with honey and lemon.

Now Iím on my morning walk. Iím hoping to keep this trend going.
