1. Hi Dot! I found a great app called Carb Manager that works great to keep track of my carbs/proteins/fats. It takes a few days to get used to it but you can add in whole recipes and it will calculate macros per serving. It also has a favorites tab so you can easily find your foods you use the most. Wanted to share this helpful little tool I found since you share so much useful info! Thanks and keep up the great work! You are beautiful inside and out!

  2. The information and advice you give show how smart and well read you are. I love all the references to good books, science as well as personal experience. I used to look forward to the videos mainly for the weigh in. Now I look forward to your well prepared and persuasive pep talk. Thank you!

  3. Thanks for your perspective Dot! I am up and down on the scale too. But I am down in the 160's as opposed to over 200 so I rejoice every day for that accomplishment. I'm enjoying where I am and the fact that I have to give away a lot of clothes and clothes that I've been holding onto for a long time now fit so I've accomplished that goal. I will adjust the amount I eat since that might be the very key to get the scale moving again. I never had a set weight loss goal because I wanted to see where my body would naturally adjust to but I still have extra fat around my mid-section so I'm sure I'd be healthier at 10-15 lb more loss. BTW, I like your new toenail color. It really compliments your skin tone. 😉

  4. You gave excellent information. Try eating less often, every time we eat it raises insulin levels which hinders keto adaptation and the next one is try intermittent fasting, look up Dr's Darren Schmidt and Eric Berg

  5. Great info Dot. Thanks for being so honest with weighing yourself. I don't weigh myself every week for it sometimes discourages me,so it's every 2 weeks for me. I find that works much better for me. But you look Great! I have about 15 more pounds to go. It's very slow for me but that's fine. I feel so much better and have much more energy!

  6. $64,000 Question?😄 I love your retro ways!! I also love your sharing personal experiences on keto that I can take from for myself. I'm new to IMF and understand that if you're eating later, you can have coffee, tea, etc., but no cream; something to do with spiking insulin, that you've messed up IMF for the day. True? Thanks much!

  7. 27 carbs a day for me. 4.5 weeks now. Lost 19 pounds. But,,, I'm weight lifting which has always been a part of my life. So my Plato is yes loose weight but back building mass and unfortunately bulking back up to the "V" look with my body. The good thing….I'm feeling better than I have in a very long time. Thanks for your advice and keep the ideas and suggestions coming!!!!!!

  8. Well done, Dot. Up a bit or down a bit, you are doing great. Question: does Greek Yogurt fit into your low carb eating? I recently found a great way of making yogurt and Greek yogurt using a crock pot. since my husband eats a lot of yogurt, I decided to make some. It was fun and while it was not at all fast, I ended up with the best Greek Yogurt I have ever tasted. I did some research online and found that the carb count for Greek yogurt is 'low'. Before I add it to my diet I thought I would ask you for some direction. Making your own yogurt you can control what is in it and when you strain it to remove much of the whey, it brings the carb count down to about 4 carbs per cup. I would like to know your thoughts on thw subject. Thanks, Dot.

  9. I was doing so well, but the scale was stuck for a month. I worked myself silly cooking to stay on compliance. Then my hubby jumped on the bandwagon and lost nearly 20 lbs. in half as much time as it took me to lose 12. I gave up. So, here I am again. Re-read the protein calculations and realized I can't just eat as much as I had been. Maybe i will have better results. Thanks for the encouragement, Dot. 😘
