    ive started switching my diet and in just a couple of days, i can tell a difference.

    ive done this before, but have never stuck with it.

    -no (or very little) carbs. i have been eating quinoa instead of rice, and even that, just a bit
    -heavy cream in my coffee
    -using butter more, with eggs and what not

    and of course, little to no sweets.

    ive been a big time fatty lately, these diet changes are so necessary.

    in related news, i think what a lot of other adults complain of (lack of energy and focus) are due to the body's changing and need to different nutrition. many of us keep the same old eating habits and as we get older, we fail to realize that we need to do things differently. this is the case for me, and i know for others too. fat around the midsection, lack of energy. poor eyesight. the list goes on and on. i cant say this diet is the cure-all, but it ticks off a few of these things, substantially.

    thanks for the videos and such. much appreciated.

    I'm still doing 0-carb or VLC (very low carb) and sometimes not eating my first meal until after a 12 hour fast.

    Today, I'll eat my first meal at about 6:45 pm after a 14 and a half hour fast.

    You body adapts.

    I feel good.

    However, last week, a restaurant screwed up my order and put mashed potatoes in stead of salad with my Cordon Bleau. I just accepted it, ate the mashed potatoes which were delicious and then ate carbs the next day in sandwhiches and an instant noodle.

    I don't know the definintion of "craving" but I felt a crave for them and ate them, and then got off the carbies again a day later.

    It's good to reload at times to trick you body and some say it's needed because of the hormone Leptin.

    It's OK to slip off of it for a while.

    And what is your low carb daily intake?

    Less than 20 grams? More? Less?


    It does not have to be 100%, just the vast majority of the time.

    I'm a member of a great low carber forum. If you're interested, PM me. It's free.

    Hell, I have more carb calories than that in one cup of coffee. In fact, double that.




    Edit: I misread grams for calories. I only have 10 grams of sugar in my breakfast coffee and a small number from milk. But I often have two cups.

    i dont know about measuring carbs, but that seems like a pretty low carb brekky. at least in terms of insulin levels, 'cause oatmeal is pretty good, low insulin type of food.

    A retired Thai doctor said to my lady recently;
    "When you're young, eat as much rice as you like.
    When around 40, eat only one bowl of rice at a meal
    Around 50 eat only a few spoonfuls of rice at a meal
    When you're 60 or so, even a sniff of the rice will make you fat"
    “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods’? John 10:34.

    Don't most have a break day per week in their Keto diet?

    A mate has been doing it for over a year. Could say it's become his lifestyle more than just a 'diet'.

    Takes will power and dedication, I'll give him that.

    I'm pretty sure that he has a break day once a week where it's No Holds Barred. 6 pack of Krispy Kream donuts for brunch.

    Anyway, he's certainly a very lean machine nowadays compared to the podgy fatfok that he was.

    Blackfart strikes again. You may have found a cure for your weight gain but why do you have to pretend that you are a professor of food?
    You are not a dietician or a doctor, you're an imbecile and there is no cure for the childish puppy fat between your ears.
    Hypocondriachs like you are a danger to others.
    Eat when you are hungry and eat what you like. Don't get sucked into food fads like the gullible idiot blackfart.

    My current food intake.

    As much as possible, I eat raw food, oats, mixed nuts, organic bean/seed sprouts and veges, thick skinned fruit, (such as bananas (two a day for potassium), mango, citrus. water melons), daily.
    Cheese, yoghurt, whole milk, whey daily.

    Steamed yams, taro, chieng da, (gymnema), and morning glory 3-4 times a week.

    Boiled, free range organic eggs and/or chicken, oily fish and very small dried sea-fish, daily.
    Other meat, once a month, on average.

    Fresh ground coffee, various herb teas, water and lime, daily.
    Minerals, fish oil, Vegemite, B vitamins and Vit C.
    Garlic, chili, cinnamon, cocoa and a teaspoon of wild honey, more or less daily.
    A teaspoon of baking soda in water if my pH gets acidic after a beer or eating meat.

    No sugar, sweets, cakes, bread, pasta, noodles, potatoes, rice (black rice sometimes)
    Beer, now at 3-4 bottles a month, if that.

    Result;
    I don't get hunger pangs or food cravings any more, hardly feel hungry at all, but drink lots of water with or without lime juice.
    Low LDL and lipids, high HDL, very healthy BP and pulse, low blood sugar.
    Strength, energy and stamina levels excellent, fast reflexes, good balance.
    I still need reading glasses, otherwise eyesight's good.
    Mind's as sharp as a tack, still doing mental maths and research, paint and draw constantly.

    Dunno if that's a keto diet.

    I'll break the regimen on occasions, ie, when travelling from A to B, or attend a function or go for a meal with friends, eat what I like of what's available, but quickly settle back into my regular low carb diet once at home.

    Fast one day a week, teas and water, vits and minerals only.
    Never eat to the point of feeling full.

    Oats and nuts are also high in VitE, magnesium and potassium, all good for the cardiovascular system.

    Do that as a lifestyle and you'll dig your own grave with your mouth.

    Look at how fast Thais have become fat and sick since they started binging on farang food.
    Back in the 1990s a fat Thai was a rarity, now it's normal for them, heart disease and diabetes rates among them have zoomed up in the last 20 years.

    Here is 'Butter Bob' on insulin and if you have a belly or large belly this may help understand it.

    A good talk with charts on Insulin. And, how intermittent fasting (IF) promotes weight loss and health.

    Awesome post CP...

    Exactly how I've lost weight (7 kg)... starve myself... (fasting)... light meal at night... easy... fat just drops off...

    No other way, if you are over 30.

    We don't need 3 fooking meals per day... it's not how we used to eat on the fields of the Sahara... kill an animal, eat.. starve 2/3 days.. rinse repeat...

    Man up boys... starve yourself healthy...

    Yeah, I'm reading a book on Intermittent Fasting by Thomas Rohmer.

    He notes (as you have) that humans did not eat breakfast in the past and that the term "breakfast" did not exist until the 16th Century. Breakfast is however the most marketed meal out of the 3 per day, in large part by cereal companies (Kellog) who dump lots of sugar into their cereals.

    In addition to losing fat weight by IF, there are cognitive benefits and others.


    Cheers.

    Fasting and eating a highly nutritious low calorie diet (along with daily exercise) has been my method of self healing and maintaining optimum health and stamina.

    When I first started on the diet in 2014, I had high BP, cholesterol and sugar levels, and was horribly unfit, although I'd ceased smoking and cut back on alcohol.

    So, down to the gym daily, plus turning to a low carb, almost vego diet, supplemented with vits and mins, I got well and really fit in 5 months.

    I'd feel hungry after the gym, so I'd eat a nut and grain breakfast that would keep me sustained until evening, with just some fruit for lunch.
    Before I started on this diet, I used to eat 2,000 + calories a day, but once I tuned into myself, I ended up eating 1,200 calorie/day, a 40% drop, sometimes less, with intermittent day-long fasting, from sunset to sunset.

    Fat fell off, muscle built up, stamina increased, I woke up every morning looking forward to the day, which I'd fill with all sorts of interesting activities. I walked a lot too.

    I could still afford to have a beer or two, but only of my "special" homebrew.
    Only a wine glass or two would be enough to get me mellow, that was counted into the calorie uptake also.

    Once every couple of weeks, I'd go for a barby round at friends' places, ate anything I liked, drank, smoked, the lot, let off steam. Next day I'd go on a fast again, then into my regular low cal, low carb, and exercise routine.

    The low calorie diet's quite easy if you stay away from refined or processed foods, burgers, pitzas, pastries, sugar, etc.

    I found a diet high in nuts and grains, supplemented with dairy (including whey), eggs, fish and occasionally chicken, along with raw veges and fruit the best appetite quencher diet, I just didn't get hungry all the time as I would on 'normal' diets, of 3 meals a day.

    I also eat lots of home-made fruit jelly, with yoghurt, a very filling high protein feed!

    Serving sizes were reduced too, no more than a small bowl of any food at a time, mostly mono-dieting, as in only animal proteins in one meal, like a tin of sardines or two at a sitting with nothing else, or a slab of salmon, followed by only fruit in the next meal, followed by crushed nuts and grains with a touch of garlic and chilly along with water or lime juice.

    Longevity and good health and stamina can be increased by following a low calorie diet (almost starvation), also going on a high Vit B and C intake will also get your body repairing itself in a hurry.

    Mineral balance is essential though, and getting blood tested every so often keeps you up to speed on what progress you're making and how, keep a diet, weight and exercise chart going, note which vitamins you're using when, note the results, daily.
