BACK YET AGAIN

Hi folks! I'm not a newbie, I e been around for awhile. I lowcarb and do good, then quit and gain back all the weight I lost. I've tried going vegetarian, South Beach, Atkins, Atkins 72, I know lowcarb does work because years ago I lost a lot of weight on it. I've had major changes in my life in the past two years, I've changed jobs more than once, had a couple health issues, etc etc. Anyhow, next month I turn 48 and since I have already made the changes I needed to get my life back together as far as work, personal, etc, I now want to get my weight under control. Today is my very first day. Last night I put a pork roast and sauerkraut in the crock pot, I have eggs, coconut oil, lard, bacon, cream cheese,etc. I'm curious about what exactly the difference is between lc/hf and keto? Is there a link someplace where I can read up on it?

Welcome back gayandgray! As for lc/hf and keto, the only possible difference is that keto means being in ketosis by eating low carb. Lc/hf is the way to do that. So the same.

LC/HF is keto. So they are the same. Welcome back, you can do this! I had a two year hiatus too, gained my lost weight back plus an extra twenty. I've dropped the extra twenty so now the additional 50 I had lost needs to be worked on. The important thing is you're back!

Your story sounds exactly like mine. I lost weight years ago on Atkins, but then started to eat "normally" which is nowhere near normal for the human body. I tried vegetarian, and even vegan, and ended up 80 pounds heavier because of them. How these vegans can be stick thin seems to be due to their young age, (as they have not been hit by insulin resistance yet), but believe me, there are a lot of overweight vegetarians out there.

Can someone explain how this Keto thing works as far as the fat/protein ratios I keep reading about here? I'm a little confused... Maybe I'm actually eating too much meat/protein??

A simple keto calculation (you can also Google keto calculators):

For the sake of simplicity, I'm going to use 200 lbs as the goal weight

Goal weight: 200 lbs = how many fat grams to eat (don't have to all, eat till satiated)

Divide 200 by 2 = 100 this is how many protein grams to eat

Carbs: start with no more than 20 Total. When you become fat adapted, you can change to net to add more low carb vegetables

Yes. These would be your macros:

150g fat
75g protein
20g carbs

79 fat
17% protein
4% carbs

WOE: Low Carb
Welcome back, G&G. I'm back too. I had gained back almost 50 of the 80 pounds I'd lost, and have re-lost almost 20 pounds eating low carb since New Year's. Sure does feel good to be eating well again! And rejoining LowCarbFriends is a wonderful boost. Hope things go out well for both of us!
