Dark Yellow White Passing Supremacist
Go on, explain to me how "a pinch of sea salt" helps you ride faster/longer.
Lost 20 lbs on low carb over the last few months.
Little exercise. Some strength training, almost no cardio. Some walking.
I feel amazing now compared to where I was. Every once in a while I eat garbage and now it makes me feel so bad that I don't enjoy it even though my mind tells me I should miss it.
I look forward to the low carb meals now and enjoy them more.
I am doing mostly 1 meal a day with a protein shake supplement. I was worried about losing too much muscle while I intermittent fasted.
The key is routine and it's more difficult than it sounds because of life. Once your body gets used to food at certain times it always wants that. Its hard to break but easy to maintain.
I hit 265 two months back. Started walking during lunch break instead of sitting in breakroom eating donuts. For lunch, Slim Fast. For breakfast, banana handful of walnuts, cashews, and almonds. For dinner whatever the fuck I wanted. Last two weeks, replaced dinner with veggies, salmon, etc.
This morning I clocked in at 233
Tell me more, I have an instant pot i need to use more.Given the price of Primal Kitchen stuff outside of Sam's and Costco, it would probably save you money if you eat enough.
Also, you get access to $5 rotisserie chickens that are perfect for a meat/skin dinner then throwing the carcass in a pressure cooker and making bone broth for the cost of water, seasoning, and some time.
just put the chicken carcass in a full 5qt (max fill line) instapot and set high pressure 4hrs and you get chicken bone broth.Tell me more, I have an instant pot i need to use more.
Thread at large
Up like 15 lbs over last 8 months. I need to push myself to get back into better physical routine, but I mainly need to transition back to finding a diet that's more suited to me being back at a sedentary job. I've told my wife i want to stop eating dinner with her as her pickiness usually means bad shit.
Fortunately I'm not letting myself get far gone like when I hit like 225 or so several years ago. Currently 6'1 205lb skinny fat and everything hurts at ripe age of 35. (My crutch is crying about my herniated disk that i had surgery for and gets awful achy at times. )
I apologize not rereading a 100 pages, but I'm still fascinated by idea of keto. Not sure i could stick to the intermittent fasting, I get hella nauseous when I'm fairly hungry, so I'd rather something where I can do some almond or something to subside the acid.
Any simplified clear guides more recently as far as getting on it and cycling or doing whatever so I don't mess myself up?
I like to throw a chicken carcass into whatever chicken based soup I’m making. Delicious but it sucks to have to keep an eye out for a hundred tiny bonesjust put the chicken carcass in a full 5qt (max fill line) instapot and set high pressure 4hrs and you get chicken bone broth.
if you feel this is too "weak" add another chicken carcass, just freeze your previous nights chicken carcass and use when ready

Did this today.
Bought a $4.99 rotisserie chicken from Sam's/Costco. Break it down by hand, eating the skin and enough meat for a full meal. It takes less than you think since there is so much delicious fat all over the skin and on the meat as you break it down. The meat gets separated dark and white while anything leftover goes in the pot, including the bits and juice at the bottom of the carton.

Add whatever aromatics you have on hand.

Then fill the pot to the 4 quart line, cook on high pressure for 2 hours and let release naturally for an hour.
For this one, after eating a meal during the break down, I ended up with 1.5 lbs of meat along with the 4 quarts of bone broth.

All for 5 bucks, less than a dollar of aromatics, and the to me to strain and clean dishes.
