I cheat every week, sundays I have egg rolls and beer, and just garbage. I pay the price for it, but damn it helps me mentally

How dare you...Now I really want an egg roll...or 3...and beers.

It's about moderation. I eat absurdly strict 6 out of 7 days. That 7th day though I don't hold myself to that standard. I dont pig out and eat nonstop, i just dont eat keto. I shit like a fiend the next day though.

Hahaha..yeah once I hit my goal I’m going to carb cycle

I'm not sure about dosing but mag cit. just straight up magnesium oxide is probably what you want. you're right also that low of a dose should not cause that diarrhea and you should talk to a dr or apn

I'm a little bit convinced at this moment that it was my Beef+Ostrich sticks causing it. I ate the first pair on Friday evening, another pair Saturday morning, and another pair Sunday morning.

That's the only 100% new thing that I had introduced into my diet. Thanks for the info!

When I calculated my macros I was recommended to consume 1800 calories daily. When I did that I gained weight, or stalled. I reduced it to 1500 and I stalled. It wasn't until I said fuck it and just ate nothing that I started to see the scale drop.

My trainer highly recommended 7 days a week of cardio, even on lift days. I just started, and haven't done cardio yet, but he swears by it. He says to start at 35 minutes a day of 140+ bpm, and if i plateau in weight, add 5 minutes a day. I'll let ya know if I need to test this theory.

Original Poster1 point · 1 day ago

For sure. What form of cardio were you planning on doing?

Well since I’m a lot bigger than you, I’m planning on using an elliptical for ease of joint impact.

If you don't supplement your electrolytes you will feel like shit. If you have other underlying health conditions they can be made more pronounced. Anytime you're making significant changes in your lifestyle you should probably consult your Dr.

Also, never trust a fart

OMG NEVER TRUST A FART! I made this mistake recently hahahahaha

Someone once said on here somewhere, don't worry about what is water weight and what is not...the point is that it's not coming back!

Out of curiosity, are you doing an exercise routine?

That's a pretty cool feeling to see the blood results for yourself isn't it! I got my test kit yesterday and love it.

I've been doing strict Keto and CICO with some IF now, and on day 6, my ketone levels in the AM are 3.2 and glucose is 84.

In the evening, my ketone levels are around 2.6 and glucose is around 86.

That's actually really awesome! I've resorted to buying an elliptical and putting it in my garage for private, at-home use. I've only gotten it halfway assembled so far since it makes me rage!

I would say "Good Luck", but that would be dumb. No luck required. Just do what you're doing and make the change! I just passed day 5, and it's been a phenomenal experience so far. I'm personally a data junkie so I'm using a tracking sheet I found on the sidebar. I'm also now measuring my ketones and glucose daily via blood testing.

Keep up the good work and KCKO

Good job fighting through it! I had my first mini test today as well at Buffalo Wild Wings. We were celebrating my 5 year olds birthday, and my wife ordered an appetizer of fried pickles...I had to stick to my will power and ignore it! I ended up getting a small order of spicy garlic wings, and it was amazing. I am also on day 5 I think.

Edit: Day 6 actually


I finally hit a breaking point in life...I've never been this big in my life, and it's horrifying to me. My wife tells me I just look like a "beefy" guy and didn't believe my weight when I told her.

My plan was/is this. I began Keto after seeing a trainer for a consultation, he set me up with a simple and clean plan, some good supplements I should get, a cardio routine, and we start strength training next week. I started the diet a bit earlier than the strength training because I wanted to get a head start, regardless of the horrendous cold I had, I did it anyways.

So this is how it's gone so far for me...Between binging on pizza and beer the night before day 1, I've completely stuck to my guns.

Day 1 was OK for about half the day, before I started getting headaches and feeling awful. I powered through it and kept going. My meals consisted of eggs and spinach, a protein bar and macadamia nuts, and two meals of 90/10 grass fed burger wrapped up in romaine leaves.

Day 2 I felt HORRIBLE from about an hour after waking up and eating breakfast. At this point, my supplements hadn't arrived, I was really dealing with the Keto-flu at this point.

Day 3 was perfect until about 3 PM. My supplements were here, and I took them all and my electrolyte concentration. I added a couple condiments into my diet, avocado mayo and sugar free ketchup.

I've dropped an obscene amount of water weight in the last 3 days, and know that I can just keep powering through. I've been consuming between 128 oz and 200 oz of fluids per day with electrolytes in some drinks and some caffeine to help with the headaches if they were to arise. I'm currently using the tracker sheet I found on the sidebar, and I'm pretty excited to use's pretty fun too!

TLDR; Day 3 was awesome, decent energy in the evening...taking this way more serious than I need to (blood tests, doctors visits, and a strict 10 food diet)

Ok, you are on your path to success. You can also go to a doctor or sleep clinic, check if you have sleep apnea, they will tell you how and provide you machinery to test at home, and follow their instructions.

Being obese may cause sleep apnea, bad sleep can cause weight gain, being tired, etc.
There are treatments for sleep problems, from pills to nasal surgery.

But first things first, stick to the diet with very low carbs 20 NET/day based on leafy green vegetables as stated on the FAQ, avocados and all good nutrition.

I actually have a CPAP machine believe it or not. I'm literally just not getting enough sleep. The picture below summarizes my diet so far (I know I shouldn't weigh myself everyday but I just like data).

Great. So once again, this is about Keep Calm and Keto On.

Needless to say, don't sleep with pets, and if you can go to sleep somewhere alone to be sure there are no external factors. But for sure you already analyzed these things.

Take it easy and don't assume what part of the weight you lose is water and what isn't, if you have some extra dollars to invest and you want, go get a DEXA scan now for body composition, then you can get another half way to see how things change. I will do it first week of July.

Pretty much it. The keeping calm part is tough considering I've got some mighty anxiety! Luckily there's a prescription for that.

I'm enjoying it so far because I feel much less bloated. As far as the weight goes, I'm just enjoying taking numbers. It doesn't have an effect on my mindset.

Thanks for the tips and keep at it!

Ooh thanks for the tip - I’ll check that out!

No problem! I mix about 40-50 drops into a 16 ounce bottle of water with a generous squirt of Mio Energy...I absolutely love it. It’s relatively inexpensive on Amazon and comes quick! I got mine next day.

I use a concentrate called Trace Minerals 40,000 volts. I just started Keto, but let me tell you it’s worked miracles today! Headaches are gone, and I’m not chugging bottle after bottle of water.

I actually have Afib and a stage 2 heart block. These cause palpitations everyday, and it was something I was scared of starting Keto. I do know that dehydration is a serious trigger for my palpitations, and since I started using "Trace Minerals 40,000 Volts" with two bottles of water, once in the morning and once in the evening, my palpitations have almost completely stopped.

I drink between 128 ounces and 200 ounces of fluids a day, but don't just drown myself with water. I take that supplement and drink a couple of diet sodas to get a tiny bit of extra sodium and some caffeine.

Wow!!! Congratulations!!! I am a school teacher and plan on starting the keto way of living next Tuesday which is the first day off for the summer. What are your thoughts (or anyone’s reading this) in regards to when to start exercising? Would you suggest waiting until I am a couple weeks in or is it safe to start right away?? Thank you for any advice you can give and I am so looking forward to this journey! 😁

My trainer says just go for it. He recommended 35 minutes of cardio at 140bpm+ for someone who's extremely out of shape (me).

I'm pretty excited to tell my doctor next month during my check-up for some other stuff...I'm pretty sure he's a tree-hugger, so we'll see how he feels about me eating half a heard of buffalo each week :D

I literally started 3 days ago. Today is the start of my third day and I'm loving it already.

I got some really good advice on some supplements to help fight off the Keto-Flu, and after starting them on day 3, I feel worlds better. I add a electrolyte concentration to my waters with a bit of Mio Energy to hide the salty flavor, take vitamin D, Omega 3s, K2(?), and stay well satiated and hydrated throughout the day.

I've lost 11 pounds of water weight in 48 hours haha.

Edit: I've also noticed a significant drop in my resting heart rate (13 bpm less) from when I started, which was high to begin with. This is with approximately 100mg of caffeine intake this morning as well. This is relatively comforting since I have a couple of underlying heart issues that are mainly electrical.

Any more information on location? I’m relatively local to the Upstate area.

Also, do you think it was beating off?

It does seem funny now, but it was terrifying at the time.

The atmosphere in the woods totally changed. It seemed like everything went quiet. It was eerie.

I don't go into any woods without a sidearm of some sort. Any idea on a general location though?

Maybe there was a littlefoot in front of bigfoot doing the business

Different “levels” are generally based off of certifications.

CCENT - Entry Level CCNA - Associate Level CCNP - Professional Level CCIE - Expert Level

There are many different paths to take for CCNA to CCIE.

As far as job titles/descriptions, they vary per employer. Generally a job description will have a required certification and a preferred certification.

Hopefully this helps and makes sense.

6yrs ago bro? Is it a lease deal?

Devil still hasn’t paid up.

I did it about 6 years ago. I’ll let you know if it turns out.

Before the down votes come from avid FUN and WILD investors...CSC is NOT a competitor to these coins. It's a different use-case and please do research before blindly down voting a very good and informational article on some recent news.

I didn’t know this was a problem. I’m working in this industry and it’s never been a big issue for customers afaik.

This is in Europe btw. But registering for any of those betting companies in Malta doesn’t take too long.

Why customers register for several different ones is often to get certain bonuses and offers. Which this potentially removes which doesn’t sound too smart if so.

see more

My understanding is this:

You want to play poker on one of your favorite online gambling sites, but don't have any balance. Oh hey look, you have some LTC or BTC laying around. Why not just grab some CSC and head on over to your favorite online casino and play a bit in the evening.

This is my understanding of it. I can tell you that I won't be banking out my BTC or LTC stash just to play some online poker or blackjack. I would much rather convert it to an intermediary cryptocurrency that's accepted by those operators.

Edit: And yes, I would rather do this than hit one of the many "Crypto casinos" that are popping up all over the place. Just saying that I would much rather play games at a casino or online card site that I have previously and trust.

My "glitch in the matrix" was me day dreaming about something happening, just moments before it happened, and another time where i imagined something happening just moments after it happened without my knowledge.

  1. Before: I was walking out of a Wal-Mart location and saw a family of 3 at the other end of the parking lot, approximately 5-6 car spots past mine. I imagined them stopping at the back of my car, and their teenage son doing something, but I couldn't think of what it was. Just about 15 seconds later, the family stopped at my car and the son took a picture of a bumper sticker I have that says "Babies Up in This Bitch".

  2. After: I was driving to my place of work at the time. As I was driving down the road, I had imagined that my boss had gotten into a car accident while going to the bank to deposit the previous days money, and it was all stolen. When I got to work, my boss was there without his car. Just a couple of hours earlier, he was rear ended on his way back into the shop, but the money was safe.
