I research a lot & can honestly say that what I've learned about junk food, sugar, etc. has been a big factor. I stopped thinking about how fattening & high carb junk foods are once I realized how horribly unhealthy they are - for everyone. Put that poison in my body? Not now. Not ever.

A little once in a while is not going to work for me. Ever. That is OK because I finally learned it is that once in a while that caused the struggles the rest of the time.

I can live & be happy with no junk, no processed foods and no cravings for them either. It is so simple & it makes my life so easy. Food is not a struggle anymore.
Try products made from goat's milk or sheep's milk if you can get them. Cow's milk has been highly processed compared to these other two. Some of the key digestive enzymes and fats have been removed before processing for retail. This makes the brain "crave more." I find I don't react to the other two types of milk as much. The other thing you could try to do is to get fresh or raw milk. I don't have a supplier near me but if I did I would try it. I don't know if they remove the cream before they sell it to the public, but the cream is needed for proper digestion and they usually remove it before homogenization.

I also eat Chinese food out, but that day I was contemplating eating stuff that wasn't exactly on plan.
What can you get at a Chinese restaurant that is legal?

I would love to know that too. That is the only thing I will miss on low-carb. Just getting started for the long haul today. I may have to learn to make a couple of dishes, low-carb style, at home. Hot and sour soup...yummy! Find out what low-carbers use to thicken soup instead of the usual cornstarch used in restaurants.

You can use Heavy Whipping Cream to thicken a lot of things up. You can add it to the drippings in the pan, if you've cooked your meat in a pan, to make a gravy.

Yes, some days are harder than others. I tell my self I will be thinner in the morning. If the scale is stubborn in the morning, I tell myself, it will go down tomorrow. . . I have to eat very low carb and low fat to get that scale to move down . . but I wait of the weight!

to all who posted here. . . it is comfort to know we are not alone. .

For legal Chinese, we usually ask our favorite restaurant to make Szechuan Spiced Chicken without sugar, flour or carrots (it is chicken in a spicy brown sauce with celery, onions and peanuts). They also make a Ginger Chicken Broccoli stirfry for us without sugar/flour too. You can eat Yakitori (chicken skewers), chicken wings, boneless pork strips and beef teriyaki and still stay on plan. No rice, fried food or sweet sauces though.

I eat this very occasionally and still stay in Ketosis.
