Decided to do another round of Keto after an entire year off.

Last time I dropped 40 pounds in about 3 months. Haven't lost a pound since. Figured it was time to give it another go.

Took me only 2 days of carb restriction to get back into ketosis. Hoping for another 30+ pounds before the Summer weather arrives!

@Alex Nice. Takes me ~5 days to switch. Better if I go near zero carbs to start, then I have to keep quite low (I'm not a huge person anyway). I'm envious. Keto's clearly better for me generally, less pain and clearer thinking, but it's just not workable in my curr situ.

@calicoday I'm pretty heavy on the physical activity, and I go basically zero-carb to get started. Still, I'm shocked I switched so fast!

It's nice to have the energy boost and clear mind associated with ketosis, but once I hit a goal weight, I really prefer to have access to better food choices.

I went from 230 to 190 last time. New goal is 150, if I can.

After that I won't need to lose weight, so it might be my last keto diet unless I mess up.

@Alex clean keto: low to no bread, pasta or rice. Everything else is ok.

@elliot yeah, last time I stayed in ketosis the whole 3 months.

I don't think it's necessary, but cheat days are just end up motivating me to break away from my diet, from past experience.

@Alex amazing. Well, good luck this time! I’ve done it six days on, one off. Have never had the confidence to go longer.

@Alex Alex, how many g of carbs you limit yourself to? I think that's how it works? I have done Atkins in the past but not sure how keto differs
