    Ketogenic Diet

    Has anyone tried the Keto diet? I've been on it for nearly 2 years (well ... about 2 years in the end of October). I'm only 5'9" but I was 230lbs. My belly was hanging over my belt and I couldn't see my toes. I had arthritis, gout, neck & back pain, facial acne, and I was prone to getting Staph infections.

    I got down to 165 at one point but am now at a comfortable 180/185 range. No more joint or back pain or gout. I don't get acne or Staph and haven't been sick even once (colds, flu, Covid, etc.). At 60 years old, I've never been more energetic and healthy my entire life.

    Also, there are lots and lots of really good recipes that will satisfy my craving for pasta or comfort food. You just have to know where to look.

    Was 259.8 # at the docs in August 2017. Quit beer and bread, got down to 179 in March. Now at 210 #, but my gym opens up on the 9th

    Green Onions, Cream Cheese, Smoked Turkey lunch meat rollup is great

    Sausage Patty, Egg, Sharp Cheese is a decent breakfast. You may need two ?

    As it stands, I have almost 200lbs of frozen meat. But I'm aware that if the grid fails that I'm going to have to think fast as to how to salvage all of it. There are a number of people I know who actually can meat so I'd have to get as much cooked and canned as possible before it goes bad.

    However, I also have a couple of year's worth of freeze-dried food in storage. True, there are a lot of carbs but I'll eat carbs as a last resort in a survival situation.

    I also consider the Eskimos and Inuits who are some of the healthiest people on earth (or were before fast food joints found their way into those societies). They survived almost exclusively on meat and fat. A very hardy people with strong teeth and an iron constitution.

    I love jerky -- A LOT! However, most of the meat I have is in the form of ground beef. I have a few, small, whole chickens; a few pounds of chicken breasts; and several pounds of cold water fish (Alaskan Cod & Salmon, mostly). Years ago, I had a smoker for making jerky but don't have it anymore. I should probably consider getting another one.

    The folks canning ground beef seal it in standard canning jars and put it on the shelf. Of course, they fully cook the meat first.

    This lady makes it look easy (she's canning ground pork):

    Hmm. Never heard of a "jerky gun." I'll have to look it up.

    Okay ... that looks really cool!

    Before my wedding I let my beer gut get a little out of hand. So me and Hot Nursey went on Keto (she had done it before). I lost 25lbs in 4 months. Was super easy and I had the energy mentioned in an earlier post.

    Luckily for me HN is a great cook. She made all kinds of good things including biscuits and gravy, chicken fried steak, pizza, tacos, enchiladas and even pancakes.

    I did miss not having fruit though.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    I still eat fruit but just low carb fruit. Blueberries, black berries, strawberries, and raspberries. All low carb. I make hemp seed smoothies. Sweetened with some Monk Fruit sweetener or Stevia and a little sea salt. Yummy. I'm making myself hungry. I just avoid the ultra high fructose fruits (most of which are man made hybrids) like bananas, peaches, plums, apples, etc. I do miss them on occasion but I don't miss the blood sugar/insulin spikes that come with them.
