Yes, maybe I can do that!
I wish that I could go back knowing what I know now. That girl that I should have told…
I agree it would be fun to “see” this group. But I will fly over and meet you at the destination. Funny…. Think what a keto cruise would be like. Those buffets of meat, meat, and maybe some more meat. LOL
I was worried about my first cruise after going keto, but found it very easy to stay low carb. And when I ate a bit higher carb I burned it off from all the walking we did. Both on the ship and the shore excursions. I did not gain any weight.
The ship was easy - it was when we had all-day shore excursions we did not always have full control over the menu. I could have not eaten lunch, but I enjoyed myself and limited the damage (no sugar).
I don’t “worry” about taking a cruise. It’s just the epitome of being stuck with a bunch of people for a long time and I can’t hop in my car and escape. Kinda my Achilles heel. I passed up a 50th birthday trip with my gal pals because I wouldn’t have been able to leave. Like LEAVE leave, not just get away for a bit. Go home. Maybe if the ship had a helicopter standing by for wanna-be escapees. LOL
I have a few friends who won’t cruise for that very reason. I’ve never cruised with anyone I know except my husband so never had to deal with needing to get away.
It sure is a stress-free way to vacation as all the logisitics except the shore excusions are taken care of and the shore excursions are optional.
That’s so great!! I hope your friends get the “bug” on the good health we can have (and the benefit of looking better too) while getting into Keto
I so relate to this I’ve been on my own too long to go without my vehicle, or some sort of escape-plan from the crowd I like to visit, but I like my own company as well.
I personally think we’ve spent thousands of years with women being the primary caregivers and with men being the primary warriors. I think we still have some of that in us.
While I was in high school, I remember a male friend trying to change a light bulb on the ceiling of a room (basement? garage?)…while standing in a foot of water. Not a bright idea, and one I think many women would say “that’s stupid” or at least “that sounds unsafe”.
Are there exceptions? I’m sure there are. Many of them.
But men tend to be more risk-taking than women, in general.
Oh honey, women take risks by being with those men!
I’m just hoping there will be another Keto Fest on land someday. Cruises are not our thing. My DH enjoyed doing the Keto Fest tho’.
Keto Fest??? What did I miss now, dang it?
There hasn’t been one in a couple of years but I always wanted to go to one to meet everyone and hear the keto gurus talk.
They were put on by the Dudes!
How fun. Maybe once covid is really in our past, it can happen again.
The 2ketodudes raised funds to hold a weekend festival all about keto, and meeting other ketoners. I was at the last one in 2019, I think there were two before that. Got to meet so many of the people involved in promoting keto/lc eating. Held in New London CT, Saturday was a pig roast, cooking demos, and meeting the speakers and other ketoners, Sunday was all about the science and more keto feasting.
I see someone has posted something about one in 2022, hadn’t heard about that so will be checking it out.
Yay! Just submitted my email to be notified when it is confirmed. So fun. Also, Have never been to CT and that season would be incredible!
Oh man. I booked a Mediterranean cruise for October 2022 and will be flying to Athens, Greece that weekend if the world doesn’t stop spinning before then!
Well, that’s the best excuse I can imagine.
