I hear ya, I'm still addicted to diet soda 6 months into my keto journey.
How are you on diet soda and doing keto at the same time? I thought that was a giant no-no.
It's different for everybody, for some people certain fake sugars trigger cravings and can even throw people out of ketosis and cause them to stall. I've never had that issue though, luckily. And now that I'm just maintaining my weight I drink diet soda way too liberally.
Fair enough. I always heard that diet soda still triggered an insulin response which made keto less effective. I'd kill for a diet coke right now haha
The angel from my nightmare
Avocado and bacon egg salad, seasoned with tajin. Holy shit dude.
I didn't bring enough food I'm gonna die
I totally forgot to make a deli rollup and I only have a P3 to last me until 7. I ate lunch at 11.
FML I think I might have to have a protein shake
I want a diet soda so badly I am going fucking insane literally fucking insane
Don't do it bruh
get a LaCroix or whatever
I have yet to have a LaCroix flavor I like. Any suggestions?
No idea. I only use fizzy stuff when I mix alcohol in. Bubbles don't work for me anymore :/
I can do a poll of friends who love it though
I need a sample pack haha
I honestly just drink plain ol carbonated water if I get a craving for soda, and that seems to suffice. Smart Water makes it now.
I've had water, coffee, and tea exclusively for the past week. I need something else to mix it up. Club soda is my go to mixer now, so I don't want to drink that on the side too.
Did keto for like 3 years and lost a decent amount of weight. But I'm veggie now so my diet is all rice and beans. Carbs forever.
I made that low carb pumpkin creamer and it got all gloopy. Like, it's kinda gross. But I think it's because I let the mixture come to a boil, even just for a moment.
I'm trying it anyways. It mixed into my coffee decently well, so we'll see.
I've stayed at the same weight three days in a row now wtf
holy shit you're the best
This happens. Don't be alarmed.
Oh holy shit I didn't put enough sweetener in this oh my god ew
I'm trying not to be... but shouldn't I be losing at least a tiny bit each day since I'm following this diet so strictly? I haven't had sugar or artifical sugar in over a week and I feel like I'm going completely insane.
Not at all - small plateaus will happen. Try adding a little extra fat or a little extra carb (sweet potato, cashews, etc) for the day and see if that kicks you back into gear. Change up the physical activity, too. That can help.
It's similar to how it was when I had surgery - I had week long plateaus and have had six month long plateaus (before my eating turned to garbage again). It's totally normal.
Also, this creamer is straight garbage. I regret everything.
I figured less carbs might kick it into gear more, but you're saying more carbs?
