It's day 1 and off 2 a good start, I feel really good about this diet! But I don't want 2 plan my day 2 much.... 1 meal @ a time, so I will return later for a detail on my 5 bites!

I will say I passed on the doughnut and coffee after my swim this morning, and got a life water instead, which was 0 cal... Will have coffee later so I can make it till lunch. Swimming makes me hungry Twisted Evil

You might be better off to not exercise for a bit till you are fully in a ketonic state? This might help with the tummy grumbles Very Happy

45 min morning swim
B- coffee w/ 2 single Heath bar creamers (60 Cal)
L- 5 bites bagel w/ peanut butter & jelly

Day 2
2 gummy multivitamin
B- coffee w/ 2 single creamers
L- snickers (2.07 oz)/ coke zero
D- 4 bites cheeseburger / 3 bites fry

Unsweetened tea & diet soda during day, mayb a herbal tea later...

Snow I'm with u on popcorn, it's a weak spot 4 me! So I was determined not 2 touch it, with fear that I might not stop! It was tough.. Especially when we first sat down my DH hands me the whole fresh bucket 2 hold while he went 2 men's room affraid
But I just pictured it as being a bucket of fat ( yuck) ...
Then at dinner I had a couple extra bites, deserved that after smelling popcorn forever! But I threw away half of my meal ( brought it home 4 stray cats) normally I would have ate the whole thing! My favor number is 7, so if I cheat I stick with 7 bites.. Thinking mayb that want mess up my hungerstat 2 bad!

I survived date nite! cheers
