Thanks Brenda! I’m about a year behind in podcasts so just heard about this forum. Have no idea how it works so just checking it out. I am also Brenda and also enjoy weight lifting.! Thanks for the post!

Brenda, I joined this forum just to respond to your post. I LOVE YOU. You’re an inspiration. I’ve known about “low carb” diets for almost 50 years (Dr. Stillman’s Quick Weight Loss Diet came out in 1967 and I own a first edition of Atkins’ Diet Revolution) when I tried it for the first time at age 13. I got brainwashed in the 70’s and 80’s by the rabbit food pushers that said, loudly, how unhealthy it was and have taken way too long to return to the fold. I loved your story and this post is just what I needed. I’m starting the Keto diet now, and was pretty overwhelmed by how complex it seemed and by the conflicting information and advice I’ve gotten. It’s good to hear “there’s no rule-book”. Thanks for your post!

Sugar is so toxic it must be antimicrobial. So that makes 3 uses for sugar. (1) Generating revenue for dentists (2) Making people fat and hungry. (3) Killing skin microbes.

Can I share this post to my FB page? Or is this strictly for this Forum?

Ouch what on earth was that about :grimacing:


This is probably my favorite thread here. I think “keeping it simple” is so important because if you make it too complicated you probably won’t stick with it. Good news! Keto is pretty simple to begin with.

There are several horrid nazi-like keto facebook groups. I became entirely burnt out by their bullying and dogma. Garbage.

I know of which she speaks, which was the direct cause of the birth of this topic. :zornface:

@Brenda, just popping in to say hey! Saw you on the MN Keto page on facebook. :slight_smile:

(April Jo) #275

Thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: for this post @Brenda I sincerely needed to hear this! Wise words!

(Wenchie) #276

I have been through all of them it seems, before I came here.

What sucks is, that especially here in Germany it seems impossible to find decent keto people who are not nazi-like (wait… german keto nazis… do I get away with that? :thinking::open_mouth: )

anyhow, glad things are different here :heart_eyes:

@Fiorella , so in a sense you could say you are very highly evolved, right? :wink:


OH NO. Keto newbie here who eats peanut butter chocolate fat bombs and they are delicious. I didn’t know peanut butter was a forbidden food! I’m going keep eating them (in moderation, gosh that chocolate is tasty). And right now I am having a bone broth coconut milk soup with ONIONS (duly carb counted in my macros). I haven’t had them in weeks and they taste really sweet. Great to read this post, because there are certain foods I will eat. My only rules are these – limit (net) carbs to 20, keep my macros in line, stay away from processed foods and eat only what I cook 95% of the time. It seems to be working for me.

It isn’t forbidden. Lol

Definitely not forbidden. Peanut butter chocolate and coconut butter fat bombs are some of my favourites. Great for a treat during the holidays or when away somewhere with a fridge. How do you make yours?

(Jeannie Oliver) #286

Me too, Daisy. Since losing on keto, I have had to resign myself to the fact that my bra size has gone from C to B cup and my backside has gone all flat and sagging. Sigh…but my health is better and my skin glows.
