So will I Chookie, not that Iím good with those sort of apps.  I tried one ages ago and didnít have a clue what it was all about. The book looks interesting too. My biggest problem is finding the Keto friendly products in supermarkets.  I spend ages looking for the right ingredients but it doesnít take me long to find the ice-cream I know and love LOL.

Judy, I am not very good with the computer and it takes me ages to work things out.  It took me a day to learn  how to work this App, but was very worth while.  I think you are better at this than me, if you remember how I first came to the Forum.  I was floating around in cyberspace trying to post recipes.  You and Thermomixer rescued me. 
Today is very warm and we are going out to friends place for lunch. We are doing a short Cruise with them at the end of the month and are to discuss details. They are very experienced with Cruising.

Judy I changed my way of eating and it changed my life 520 days ago. I have lost 24 kilos and no longer take any medication at all. My blood pressure is perfect and I feel great. I will never eat a high carb diet again even though I do miss my bread and pasta. I stick to low carbs ( under 25 ) low fat, high protein and MOST IMPORTANTLY low calories under 1200 a day. I track every morsel I put in my mouth and I find it keeps me accountable and is no burden.

The best foods for Keto are in the outside aisles of the supermarket. Meat, chicken and vegetables. Avoid any packaged foods especially those labeled Keto. Also check the recipes in those low carb cookbooks as they are often high in fat which adds unnecessary calories. It is all about calories in and calories out to lose or maintain a good weight and feel great.

I have never felt better in all my 76 years.

Thatís fantastic Gert and with that determination you will keep it off because of how good you feel being lighter and healthier.  I donít think thereís a better feeling to when your doctor says you are going great and keep on doing what you are doing. 

When youíve been doing it for a while that becomes your Ďnormí and you no longer see it as being a diet or something you only do to lose a few kilos, it has become your way of life.   This is what happened to me, changed my lifestyle 7 years ago and have maintained that lifestyle/weight for 6 years, I couldnít possibly see me changing back to the old me at all.  Life is so much better in lots of ways.

Sure, there are days when I donít want to get up at 5 (or later in winter) to drive down to the beach for my walk, but itís become a habit and once Iím there doing it I so enjoy it, it sets me up the for the day and I feel good knowing that Iíve just done a 3.5km brisk walk.

I wish youíd post more Gert, I enjoy reading your posts  :D

Judy, I think this app might save you a lot of work.  I have taken a screenshot of how I think it would help. It tells you how many carbs for the day. It also tells how many carb fo individual items.  You slide the line under the meal and tap which nutrient you want.

I saw Gert in action last year.  She sure looked good then and even better now.

Gert and Julie, Judy too and all the rest of us are doing well. Isn't it sad that we only become fully aware of how important diet and exercise is until so much later in life? although looking round at society so many never become aware.
As I've said before I HATE EXERCISE  but if I don't do it daily feel sluggish. Anything to keep the pills at bay.

Well done everyone one.  Warming up here.

Thanks Gert, that information is extremely useful as I do struggle with eating so much high fat which Keto pushes.  I can easily do low carb and high protein and was thinking of cutting the fat content once I lose another 5 kg but maybe I should start doing that now and see what happens.
Thanks Chookie and Julie for contributing to useful information, I agree with cookie that we donít wake up until later in life - that could be because we have more time to take care of ourselves perhaps?  Whatever the reason, Iím enjoying the whole process and trying to improve my body shape and gain some health benefits in the process for no other reason than to please myself. I wore shorts to gym this morning as I felt my legs werenít that bad that I had to cover them up on very hot days.

Yay, good for you Judy.  Shorts would be much more comfortable and cooler at the gym for sure.  You're really seeing the results of your hard work already, so pleased for you.  :D

Wow Judy, shorts !!!  What are they?
Cookie, I took notice of you and your exercise and it has inspired me.  I walk on the Treadmill for 30 minutes each morning. I stick the iPad on the top with bluetac  and watch something interesting. The more I do the easier it gets. But I still donít like it.

Completely wrong Judy. Nutritional Keto is LOW FAT. Adding fat just adds more calories not needed.Keep your  fat to under 50/60 Gms a day.
