OK, but I was not only sharing my thoughts but Dr. Westman's He was answering the same question on FB at the same time, to the point I checked names to be sure you weren't the same woman asking about protein. Keep it simple, with carbs under 20g and the rest falls into place with real foods. Note also his caution about using whey proteins, where bodybuilders can overeat protein.

One more thing
but ate a fried pork chop because I read you shouldn't skip meals.

You didn't read that from me See quotes in my signature!
Only eat when hungry. For more information, check out this thread and watch some of the intro talks on DD.

Also, to further confuse you, Therapeutic Keto is used to treat various medical conditions.

The advice I've seen given most often on this forum is: "Pick a plan and stick to it." Regular LCHF eating is a no-brainer which requires no weighing and measuring of food or logging macro nutrients.

*******One further note. From experience I can tell you that when you're in ketosis, you will have little to no hunger. I have to be careful of that or I won't eat enough and my metabolic rate will drop lower and lower.

****************One even further note: Opinions are like eyeballs, we all have one. Or is it two?

Bluesinger- I couldnít agree with you more. I follow Atkins because it Works for me and it is easy. I have been trying to figure out what the difference between Keto And Atkins is. You nailed it - using macros. I choose not to complicate it and just watch carbs. For the Ďmost partí things fall into place of you just eat natural healthy foods without carbs. It works. Iím losing - slowly - but losing.
