    Been doing Keto (fewer than 20g net carbs daily) for a few months now. Hard to give up all pastas, potatoes, bread, sugars but after 2 weeks became real simple. I can eat all the fat, red meat and other proteins I want. I eat a bunch of bacon, ribeye, eggs and cheese. My cholesterol is damn near perfect and same with my blood pressure. I have to drink in moderation and beer is off the table, so that sucks. But it’s amazing how healthy you can be with all the fat as long as you have no carbs.

    I’m at a family function this week and broke my diet for the festivities. I’m not loving all the carbs and can’t wait to get home and start back on the Keto diet again.

    Another great advantage is no energy slumps. Without carbs, my body burns fat instead of glucose for energy so there is always a constant flow of energy regardless of when I last ate.

    That was how I lost my 40+ pounds a couple years ago. Nowadays I have to eat carbs just to make sure I don't drop below they weight I want to be.

    Vegetarian breakfast. Roasted vegetables with cashews, brown rice, fruit, yogurt.

    I'm a fan of the Mediterranean diet myself, lost 51 pounds and kept them off 3 years
    I did get indulgent over the holidays, meat and sweets but taking the weight off

    I've been eating mostly fish and chicken, but last night I grilled a New York strip steak. Yum!

    Burn the fat until it catches fire and long enough for it to blacken, brand the grill marks in a cross hatched pattern and make sure the inside part is medium rare and you're talking my favorite steak. Now, add a large russet potato baked to perfection and add butter, sour cream and chives. Now, add a quality red such as a Mondavi, Napa cabernet sauvignon or a Columbia Red Willow Valley cabernet sauvignon or a Chateau Latour or a Chateau Lafite-Rothschild and you're talking a dinner to remember. How about some Cherries Jubilee for dessert?

    Okay, you talked me into it. Now, give me your address and when to be there.

    Edit: ps Be sure to use natural all wood charcoal on your grill.

    I just got back from Buster's BBQ in Tigard where meat is king. OMG, had a beef brisket poor boy with lots of bark and some beef ribs with BBQ beans to take home for dinner. Is there anything better than Texas BBQ? No

    I use only natural charcoal, grass fed beef, and make my own ice cream. Also have cherry tree. But I don't like sour cream on potatoes. Need a garden salad.

    That's Tigard BBQ, not Texas.

    I'll bring my own sour cream. The homemade ice cream is a really nice touch and makes it further tortuous until I get invited.

    I would want to toss asparagus in olive oil and add to the grill. Bake some crusty bread

    Some of your meat spoiled and turned green.

    No, that's a vegetable.

    And yes, you might be thinking, hey, there's 5 meats in that picture. NY steak, chicken skewer, brat, and bacon. But the bacon doesn't really count since it was contaminated by the asparagus.
