I didn't ask for advice, TH. I have studied a lot of nutrition and have had a hospital nutrition professional tell me she WISHED they could feed my husband as well as I was doing.

Now, if I win the lotto I will absolutely hire a houskeeper/house staff who will be schooled in what I consider to be "proper" nutrition, minimally processed, whole, fresh, foods (I think we can agree on that), things so delicious it's hard to decide which to eat. Absolutely will do that. I will eat an omelette for breakfast every morning,bursting with meats, delicious cheeses, and vegetables. I will drink organic decaf green tea and fresh squeezed lemonade.

In the meantime I am looking at a Walmart package of peeled hard boiled eggs for dinner. He ate earlier and doesn't want anything. I have a headache and don't want the turkey leg.

That's another one we can agree on, a nice smoked turkey leg.

Sea salt and pepper are fine and I enjoy spicing my tomato slices the same way. Pepper used in conjunction with turmeric has some good health benefits.

I started this on 8/12. Lost 11 lbs so far. If you are missing bread, look up chaffles. It is a new craze in the keto world. Chaffles are waffles made with egg and cheese on a mini waffle iron. There are a bazillion recipes and if you add almond flour and baking power, they turn into bread for a sandwich.

My 2 Cents:

Keto/Low Carb diets work. So do many other diet programs. But the real problem with any of them is staying to it long term. No easy solution to that.

If you want to lose weight a Keto diet is probably one of the easiest least painful (no need to go hungry) and reliable ways to do it. For a while it is even fun as you invest more time into cooking and eating new foods. But don't think it is a long term magic bullet. Eventually 99% chance you will give it up and gain again, so enjoy that skinny body while you can and be prepared for more battles ahead.

PS. My wife and I are going to start again dieting in a couple of weeks (when kids summer vacation is over). I will do low carb as it has worked for me well in the past. I don't do it for looks, but I owe it to my kids to be as healthy as possible, and to my family/work to have best possible energy levels and I can already start to feel both are in decline as my weight has been increasing again.

For me, the chaffles are a game changer. I can make sandwiches again. I am determined to make this a long term way of life. Already I have more energy and my back doesn't hurt quite as bad after work.

I got some P3 for a couple of reasons.

Vending is facing a "healthy eating" lobby that wants to dictate what we sell.
Variety
Good price point
Tasty, according to my husband (I can't eat nuts).

The other day I was stocking them and thought about how you guys could actually eat them. I didn't get them for that but I will say someone is buying them as fast as I can stock.

I also do the balanced breaks in the food machine but they have fruit in them. Still healthy, though.
