Lost yesterday somewhere! Similar eating = except in the evening 3 slices of round smoked german cheese. Today I broke my fast in Tescos car park with 2 chicken drum sticks and a pack of scratchings - and the other pack when I got home. Updated to add - chicken, shirataki noodles cream late afternoon and 3 slices of cheese later.

How are you finding it?
It suits me. I'm doing lazy keto - so may well need to adjust something if the scales don't continue to tick down. Daily weighing and tick up and down. I may focus on the ridiculously big salads (Eat like a Bear) again and see if I can get to one meal a day.

We got our 2nd jabs today - so that's good. I had a shake in the car - and 2 sausages on return 14.15pm. Airbnb turn around.

I always get a bit sweaty doing the cleaning - good sweat.

I had shirataki noodles, chicken and a slosh of cream plus a choc mousse for supper.

Happy second jab day!!! It must be a good feeling knowing you are completely done. My second one is in June.

I broke fast with MrAG late morning with bacon, an egg and an unketo slice of black pudding (probably 8 or 9 carbs), mushrooms and tomato. Later I had a choc mousse and then cos lettuce and egg mayo.

Our second jab is on hold as we decide what to do about Astrazeneca. But our timeline is way behind yours.

Today, powered by a cup of coffee, I cleaned the Airbnb and broke fast really late - 4.45pm - slice of fired bread, some baked beans, courgettes, black pudding, bacon and an egg. I couldn't finish it all - so handed over my plate to OH who finished it. My guess is it was below 30g carbs. Maybe today will be just a one meal day. Updated: It wasn't. I had a choc mousse later and some bacon.

Weekly weigh in was 2.2lbs down - just under a stone in the first month 4.4% of starting weight shed. So a good start.

I've broken my fast with some lunchtime broth. 2pm Cos lettuce egg mayo and a polish stick sausage. Supper: Steak, courgette and cream sauce. Last choc mousse.

Missed tracking this week - all good. Eggs, salad, mayo, bacon - because that was what I had in the fridge. Really enjoyed crispy bacon. Egg mayo or fried eggs.

Whizzed up sardines with mayo pepper chilli for something more savoury one evening. I find it easer to delay eating when I am cleaning the AIrbnb - as I'm eating afterwards.

Yesterday was off plan - first fish & chips since March 2021. I ate a bit more than 2/3 in the car overlooking the coast with my OH. The remainder heated up for supper. I had small chips - and even so hadn't eaten it all. That's a big change - previously I'd have eaten it all with regular chips (twice as much). Daily weighing to my surprise didn't tick up - but moved down. Yea!!

Scallops & fennel in cream sauce. Bit of cheese. Egg mayo salad for supper.

Edited to add - unusually a third meal later in the evening - egg mayo, a little cheese and 4 halloumi chips.

Well done! Do you ever feel tired with the delayed eating?

No - because I'm living off the food stored in my own fat!

I make my own electrolyte drink and have that. It stops any wobbliness. I'm now regularly cleaning our Airbnb in a fasted state ie I don't eat before clean the guest suite. It's my only serious exercise - and I get into a sweat before I've finished!

I'm using this recipe - no cider vinegar to protect my teeth https://www.ketofitnessclub.com/blogs/drinks/electrolyte-drink?_pos=1&_sid=0673dd6e4&_ss=r I bought a big tub of Cream of Tartar off Amazon and make my own baking powder with it.

Another recipe here: https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/electrolyte-elixir-drink

I don't track how much water etc I drink a day - I usually have one or two electrolyte drinks (500mils) and then drink when I feel like it - water, black coffee and Lidl diet coke.

In fact, I'd say have more energy eating 2 low carb medium protein with good fats meals a day than when I ate 3 plus snacks. I need less sleep and sleep better.
