It just occurred to me that we are at a disadvantage on getting our own category for Nutritional Ketosis.

Think about it. It is stunningly successful. So, the turn over as people reach their goals and fall away from daily/weekly posting will probably be greater than the amount of new people joining if for no other reason than the fact that we are hidden in the 'Other Plans' area.

I never even knew Other Plans existed till we got moved here lol.

I advertise both threads as often as possible. I know the other frequent posters are doing that too. I hope to encourage the lurkers to do that as well.

And, if you are a lurker, please do post a 'hello I am following along silently' post (no need to think you have to post anything else if you don't want to) so Dottie, the admin, can see the interest in our little island of high fat, moderate protein and finger pricking sanity. Say hello at the other thread too.

=)

Coke zero seriously stalls me if I drink even two per day. And when it's in the house, I seriously want to drink it all day. I have diet root beer in the house now and never have that problem.

Yup, coke zero is very tasty.

Thank goodness that diet sodas do not have any affect on me at all. Hooray!

I also love coke Zero. For me it is the best diet drink, of diet coke.
Now that being said[And I drink to much of it every day. I would love to stop. We are going on vacation for couple weeks. And maybe that will be a great time to stop or slow way down.

I must get this weight that i have regained since Feb. back down.
Just have to find a program that works for me,that is healthy and low calarie.[ withhealthy fats and good proteins low sugar fruits. ect.I'm also using at times the Nutri bullet to make heathy green smooties.
It seems to help.
I will come back and see how u all are doing.[Maybe when I come back, I will join you all If I may.,?

Well, since you mention it, Dottie did promise me a Gillion dollar check but I modestly declined such a large amount of compense.

We may have inadvertently stumbled onto the next big marketing gimmick for the LC woe.

Hmm, you are right, let's start writing our book now, it will become a best seller, I just know it. What diet book doesn't?

The orange soda and cream is very good in my opinion. Root beer is my fave but I like strawberry, orange and peach too.

We'll have to develop the pitch carefully.

Somehow the line, 'honey you look like you are putting on some weight, have you considered low carb?' probably won't result in a lot of recruits

Red, I have also thought about the fact that there are two NK threads going, sometimes wonder if we shouldn't just move over to that one, since I think we all post there sometimes too, but to be honest, I like our little group over here a lot. We like each others humor, have a lot of fun, and it is easier to get to "know" each person and what they are actually doing when there is a small group.

Whatever you decide to do, I will follow and drink the sugarfree kool-aid.

Well. I had considered that. Especially when Heather abandoned us. But really our approach is a bit at odds with the other thread and there is a certain amount of animus from the defacto leader there towards our approach. That is why I unsubbed and quit posting regularly. I still read that thread both because I am interested in what is being said and because I want to help foster the attention it deserves in hopes of getting our own NK topic area. That is also why I still refer people to the other thread and this one. And that is why I asked lurkers to say hi at both threads.

Just to be clear, I harbor no ill feelings about the divergent paths that have developed and I'm so very, very happy that the other thread was the genesis on this little flavor of LC for me. Nor do I feel any ill coming from the other direction.

Essentially, I want to be free to exalt and sing the praises of 80/15/5 without feeling like I am stepping on anyone's toes doing that.

We will have to start a new thread come the first of the month though since this one has gotten to be so many pages.

Dang it. I think I am gonna be pretty low on protein today. I'm stuffed and I still need to eat about 3oz of chicken and a HWC float.

I'll probably have the float but I doubt that chicken is gonna happen.

lol The problems I have, right??

The pork rinds add about 9 gr of protein for 1/2 oz, just a thought.

I haven't been back to LC long so wasn't really aware of the difference the other thread had taken versus this one??? If you want, let me know. I just know I enjoy both a lot!
