Thread Name: BS: Keto diet - anybody try it? Like it?
Subject: RE: BS: Keto diet - anybody try it? Like it?
It's worth remembering (sayeth the cynic) that all published diets are designed to fail. The first universally successful diet would spell the end of the lucrative diet book industry. We can't have that now, can we! I feel fine when I eat my own cookery. And I mean cookery, starting from scratch with quality fresh ingredients, not sticking a pizza on an oven shelf for ten minutes (which I do occasionally). A couple of days of takeaways or ready meals and I don't feel so good. For me, that's the clue. Investing in my own efforts in the kitchen helps me to control both the quality and quantity of what I eat. Nothing's perfect. I love cheese in all its manifestations, for example. And eggs. In the last 36 hours I've consumed six eggs. I need to shed a stone (I can tell, because all my shorts are a bit tight...), but my guts are good and I feel fine. I can't ever see me living in the permanent misery of daily weighing or calorie-counting.
