Actually, I've never done the keto thing so that doesn't ring bells but no. 14 rings loud and true!

so darn true, I have been back on carbs for the last half of this week after a slip up and feel lousy, fat tired and depressed. Back on the wagon tomorrow. Getting started is hard but then is just bliss after a couple of days.

Being on a low carb diet I spend half my time trying to explain to people that meat and fat are not the enemy and the other half trying to prove I'm not insane because I don't eat bread or spuds! :-)
