Default Bald Brit saying Hi!

Was keto for the last six months or so, but recently committed to Zero Carb - only a week in.

When I say keto, I'm lying a bit, because I was drinking alcohol, too much TBH. I've quit drinking altogether as cutting back isn't an option for me.
Whether it's zero carbs or zero alcohol I don't know nor care; feeling great and lost more than 2 kgs in eight days. Clearly, that may be just water loss, but the visible fat loss around my love handles and back is very apparent.

I'm overweight, but not enormously so. Currently 81 kgs down from 85 kgs a couple of months ago (the last time I weighed). At my heaviest maybe ten years ago I was a little over 90 kgs.
186cm (6'1") and slim 'build', 84cm waist (33").

Currently eating eggs and bacon breakfast, and rib-eye and/or rump steaks for lunch and dinner. Also a cup of (home made) bone broth most days too. Cut out coffee too, which is easier than I'd expected - drinking about 2.5 litres of filtered water every day.

The only other thing that may be pertinent is exercise, which is a little free-weights at the gym Saturday and Sunday, an hour each.

Looking forward to joining your community and gaining fresh knowledge.

Thanks for the kind welcome.
Looking forward to learning more. With that in mind, I'll keep my mouth shut until I have something useful to contribute.

Welcome LordGrover,
Check all the sub-forums here at this large forum, but especially tricky, is finding the Zero Carb thread. It is in the Low Carb War Zone because only a few years ago it was very "fringe", well still is to many.
The more recent pages of posts have a few great podcasts and list of meaty resources. http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=471960
All the best,
