Well I just swore out loud when I saw your pics !
Thank you SO much for giving me back my inspiration.

C'mon, LC Hottie07, give us some more info please? It would be helpful to a lot of us if you would post your typical menus and the rules you stuck to. I would like to know also what portions you ate.

I may be stuck to being a slow loser due to a few health problems, but I'm still interested in tweaking my diet to see if I can speed things up a bit.

Congrats also to the rest of you. It's very inspiring.

Sorry Mermaid... I've been real busy today so I haven't been able to check in!

I actually followed the KE portion of the KK program almost all the way to goal. My general rules that I stuck to was lean proteins, low fat. My numbers were usually around 70-80g protein per day, 20g fat, <20cb and around 600-700 cals. Funny thing was... because I jump started into ketosis... I wasn't hungry!!!

I have since started excercising, however I've had to slack off for a little while due to knee surgery.

:blush: Well.... :blush: Thank you... I'm a little overwhelmmed! This is so encouraging!

A typical day while following my KE time:

B: 3/4 cup EW sweetened w/ Davinci's Caramel, 1-2 cups coffee
L: chicken "tortilla" soup (my own recipe - 1 can chicken broth, 4 oz boiled chicken breast - shredded, 1 tbls salsa, to taste: chili powder, Comino, salt, paprika, pepper, garlic powder, simmer and enjoy! )
S: 1/4 cup SF Jello
D: 6-8oz grilled salmon

I drink crystal lite, flavored water and diet sodas as I like... Anyways this is just an idea of what my day might hold... It worked for me!!

I will Cuter!

I'm in the midst of my maintenance transition right now actually! My general idea is to always keep my caloric intake at or right around 1300 cals (which right now to me seems soooo high... I still have a hard time bringing it up over 900! ), and I'm still trying to determine my carb tolerance level. I'm slowly adding foods back into my diet. I'm beginning w/ the higher carb veggies in moderation (like 1/2 cup each) like carrots, peas, squashes... Next are dairy/fats (which I've really held off on till now) yogurts, cheeses, milk in moderation; after dairy I'll add back in fruits, and then whole grains. My goal in all of this is to allow my body to slowly transition back to eating a healthier rounded diet. I will never NEVER go back to my old way of eating in which I would devour almost an entire pizza in one sitting! I might have it occasionally...but only on special occasions... and I'll probalby only stick to like 1 piece. I plan on making my WOE LC for the rest of my life if anything to avoid the temptations that bringing those things back in can cause.

I hope this answers your question.. I've probably rambled on here a lot more than you wanted to hear... LOL OH well.... have a great day!!
