I checked around, and found that a Keto diet would accomplish several things:
- Lose weight (OK, for the science-minded, actually mass)
- Decrease water retention - a problem due to periodic use of steroids for asthma issues
- Eliminate my carb cravings that had torpedoed other diet efforts
Boy, did it! Until today, I had no carb cravings. Even when I did start sniffing around carb-y snacks, I quickly was able to find a substitute - cheese strips. It worked.
I'm able to eat a whole lot of things:
- Non-starchy veggies
- Hummus (in moderation)
- Pork rinds - never liked them before - it turns out that I hated the barbeque flavor of the ones I sampled previously. Plain pork rinds are delish - AND a great scoop for various protein-laden stuff
Tomorrow, I'm going to track down an easy recipe for Bulletproof Coffee - devotees swear bythe high-fat snack drink.
I'll be weighing in tomorrow.
