I've been doing low carb for a few weeks now to lose some weight I put on while on prednisone

Mostly eating cashews, almonds, cottage cheese, Sardines, tuna, chicken, steak and ground turkey

I know some dudes here 🤬 with keto, any new foods you'd suggest to add to the diet? I'm getting tired of eating the same things everyday

    Searched for a thread on this as only this week started eating much much less carbs. Cut out bread so far and the rice I'd eat.
    Pretty start my day with eggs and steamed vegetables. And any meat and vege throughout the day and dinner. Was not fat before but not lean, just skinny and do some weights. But in just a week say, I can already see my face thinned out alot and my body looking more cut than ever before. Tried it once for a week few months back but gave up due to headaches withdrawals etc

    This time more focused. Findiing little hard to sleep. And eyes look like I'm on amphetamines lol And just crazy looking

    Yeah I'd probably be getting somewhere close to the same. Minimal carbs from veges, fruit, nuts.

    Do you do the recommended once a week or something where you have more carbs than usual to shock and trick the body??? Heard thhat doing it daily longterm not good ass body gets used to it???

    Long term keto seems to be really bad for the body. Without those carb days people can actually lose their ability to digest them

    Bout to start eating more lentils. I hear they're packed with protein. Not sure if that had anything to do with the actual thread, but I felt the need to share that.

    Lentils have a lot of proteins but they also have carbs in them

    If your body has no issues with carbs they are great

    props to whoever can do a keto diet for more than a couple of months. That 🤬 takes dedication.

    I'm done!! LOL

    Caught the flu real bad, been in bed for 4 days just recovering from chest and sinus infection, but prior just like a day or 2 started getting back on the rice, brown rice as my carb intake. Without the carbs or going to barely little, can't do it. After a few days just feel like cannot perform as well with general chores even

    That's called carb flu, I get it too
    Coffee keeps me going on those days

    It's temporary though
    Eventually the body adapts and you no longer feel that fatigue and brain fog

    In order to avoid the headaches and minimize carb flu you have to eat a lot of fat. Carb flu generally lasts less than a week but you may feel fatigued during vigorous activity until you're keto-adapted. I became keto-adapted in about a month and the fatigue during workouts was gone.

    My go to fat sources are butter, coconut oil, olive oil and heavy cream & mayo. There are hundreds of recipe sites for keto/ low carb. Just google them. One of my favorites is Cut the Wheat, Ditch the Sugar.
