What did you NOT eat today?


(I came for the weight loss and stayed for my sanity... ) #992

there are bakery croissants in the office kitchen… I am fasting…


Well that was convenient. :wink:

Because 100% beef is just wrong… face palm, again, it’s all the cows’ fault, again…

Okay, I know I am on the record as being egalitarian in use of grammar and word choice, but when did this happen? Since when do you “rebel” something? All this time I have been wasting time rebeling against things. Or being a rebel. I don’t think I have ever rebeled anything!

If anyone deserved pendantry, it is producers of fake meat. On the other hand… fake meat, fake grammar.

Am not eating birthday cake or chocolate chips. Since really getting my eating window to 4 hours, it feels like cravings are 100% gone. When I was doing “lazy keto”, I was like a bear rummaging around the house for chocolate.

Did have a small slice the other night - rotten night’s sleep (20 minutes of deep sleep, vs average 90), and hungry and cranky the next morning. Lesson learned!

And if meat is so bad, why does everyone want to eat things that look and taste like meat? I’ve never tried to make a meat taste like a vegetable. :stuck_out_tongue:
Yep fake.

I passed on s’mores. I like them too. Fire, sticks and chocolate.

As has been pointed out in many threads, “long pig” is definitely keto. (And supposedly quite tasty.)

As for what I haven’t been eating, there are grapes all over my kitchen that I haven’t touched. (I did have an apricot, however. It wasn’t as good as I was hoping.) I made a keto cheesecake for Independence Day that went over quite well and didn’t touch any of the other, sugary desserts. I also had no trouble passing on the bun for my hamburger.


I had a dentist appt today, ventured into Walmart on the way home. Did NOT eat the entire bakery mark-down rack.


We had a long weekend in Pula and I went to town early in the morning, walked around the market, reserved our fish dishes in our favorite market stand, etc. As I was walking around town, I saw all these tourists having breakfast in local bakeries, munching on sandwiches, baked goods, and sweets. I reminisced of the old days when I would buy us assorted baked goods and surprise my husband with breakfast, then after lunch walk back home and have some ice cream on the way… A lightbulb went off again, no wonder I was chubby and unhappy!! Once you start with keto, you cant just eat these foods anymore - quick bite, convenient bite, desserts, foods on top of foods, etc.

I am on a school trip and this is what we got served for breakfast. I’m not eating this morning.

(Susan) #1004

Aww =( that is super annoying and frustrating, Elizabeth.


Holy cow! Even if I was eating that stuff, it doesn’t look appetizing. :nauseated_face:

It was a little grim. The clump of yellow was pasta salad, which was just the perfect complement. :neutral_face::neutral_face::neutral_face::neutral_face::neutral_face:

The other half of a mini white chocolate kitkat. It wasn’t as good as I was remembering either. :thinking::blush:

(Mame) #1008

Two work parties, 2+ hours and I avoided cookies, cakes, chips, hummus, crackers, fruits, dips with carbs and salads with carbs. at 40+ hours fasted, ugh glad that is over!

(I only ate some cheese and cucumber slices.)

Well done on resisting all the bad carbage, you did great!! You should be very proud of yourself.

Donut (doughnut) holes. A gal in the office keeps bringing them in and sharing. They are sitting on her desk like a beacon of deliciousness and I find myself staring at them while people talk to me. I have, on more than one occasion, walked out without answering just to be away from them.

(Susan) #1011

Is there any way you could have a word with the lady without offending her? You do very well resisting them, you should be proud of yourself as well =).
