    what's the difference between low carb and keto? which one is better?
    One doctor told me that low carb means your body works on less fuel. So u may feel tired. But keto diet avails u the ability to use body fat as fuel; and hence u won't feel tired on a keto diet.

    Does the same happens while on intermittent fasting? And in that case which is better? keto diet, or intermittent fasting? or low carb diet?

    I just started this Low Carb diet two weeks ago. I purchased the strips from Amazon and I am still in small amounts of Keto. Can you give a break down of how much of fat, protein, sugar, we should consume a day, so I may get to a high keto level. Thanks

    Hi, I just completed the two week challenge. Thank you for the wonderful introduction to the low-carb life style. I am loving your program. As a successful graduate of the challenge, I am now creating my daily meals using the recipes on the website. Question: are the recipes designed like the two week challenge recipes? Where one recipe serving equal both diner and lunch?

    I've just finished the 1st week of the challenge and lost six pounds. Hurray for me and DD! However, I'm concerned. I am using Carb Manager to track my carbs because the last time I did Keto I ate too much food although my carbs were within range. Here's the outcome of one day's meals: 25 g net carbs; 218 g fat (118 is recommended based on a keto calculator based on goals, age, weight, height); 132 g protein (92 g is recommended) for 2878 calories!

    Can it be possible to lose weight eating those numbers? I'm not hungry. Is it time to cut back and eat less?


  12. Jerry
    Have been on Keto now for about two weeks...have lost about 9 lbs. I understand the basics and have followed them as best I can. The more I look at various whole natural foods I am surprised by the carb content of things like even vegetables! The biggest issue I'm having is the accurate daily tracking of carbs, protein and fat. I was hoping there was a good mobile app for this, but haven't found it yet. Anyone have a good suggestion for tracking various foods daily for keeping a specific count in these categories?
    Please advise,
