    Theres a lot of people who are 100%. Probably most people are. Often starting to snack is the beginning of the end for a TFR

    Theres a sticky thread with foods listed that will keep you in ketosis

    I know that would be me! Which is why I am even wary of adding a meal which I should be doing next week! It's going to be a real test as up til now I have been 100% all the way.

    The only thing that I touch is a Boiled egg after the gym, protien for muscle building and i've notice a bold patch at the front left of my head, so hoping the extra kick of protien will help with hair growth..

    I personally think those that can have just 1 boiled egg or a slice of ham etc are AMAZINGLY strong! I know me and right now just 1 boiled egg would not be enough :( Dreading AAM week :( lol

    I havent got any issues with portion control or anything. Have to add extra food in my diet because I do very intense workouts at gym and have been advised to do so. Just trying to drum up some ideas of what to have or not to have :)

    I find lean meat, or the boiled egg / omelette works well. When I go out for a meal typically I will have something like steak & salad - it's just knowing when to stop. I did really well on TFR to start with, then I started adding meals which worked for ages. For my birthday I went out a bit more, and have found it hard reining in again since - but am working through stuff in my head and am back to mostly TFR at the moment, although will sometimes AAM, it just works for me.

    If you don't have them you mean?

    You're not getting the nutrients etc you need on a diet like this. If you're having food it has to be over and above your packs not in place of them.
