  1. When your website or blog goes live for the first time, it is exciting. That is until you realize no one but you and your. simple keto diet plan

  2. Everyone would be better off if they just followed the 30 bananas a day
    diet and if you really do want some fat, just use margarine.
    I tried my best to type that without laughing my ass off. I can't get over
    the fruitarian thing - too ridiculous.
    Seriously though I've been within NK (80%Fat/12-15%Pro/5-8%Carb) for
    quite some time now and couldn't ask for anything more.
    Find your balance and really dedicate yourself to it, for at least 6 weeks,
    with no re-feeds or deviations. Load a free Macros-Tracker App on your
    phone, I use Carb Tracker, and get it as close as possible to those numbers.
    No keto-stix necessary; if your within those numbers - trust me - your in
    ketosis and if you do that long enough you will become Keto-Adapted.
    Once your in your groove stay off all these forums, stay off the scale, just
    look in the mirror and enjoy the ride.
    Good luck :)
