|Jeffrobombero||Yes, I plan (hope) to drop a bit below my goal weight so that when I get off Keto and rebound like I know will happen, I have some wiggle room. I don't want to get to where I was again, I'm feeling too good. I just hope that I can eat sensibly and moderate exercise to maintain a healthy weight. Keto is the only thing I've done that I have been able to stick with and see consistent results. It has helped cure me of my dickiedoo disease already.|

I've lost close to 40 pounds on strict KETO over 6 months (~205 LB ~ 165LB). Than I've relaxed the diet a bit, simultaneously adding 10-14 hours a week of hard exercise (2-3 hours of boxing workout at a time), riding " bicycle with 20" wheels everywhere (a sort of workout in itself). 165 LB at 6'3" - not an OZ of fat. The best shape and the best I've felt in my life! This lasted for about a year and a half, and then my daughter was born... my routine went out of the window, and I was back to ~210 LB in about 1 year.
If there is anything to take away from my experience, KETO is not a silver bullet, and will only help you reach a desired weight. To keep the weight where you want it, you would need to find a routine that works for you, reach a desired weight, exercise as much as you can, and watch what you eat. Be careful with cardio, but try to push yourself a little bit over your previous maximum.

A little update.
My appendicitis helped me lose about 10 pounds from not eating and then being on a liquid diet for a few days after that. So, that seemed to be a metabolism reboot. I have been dropping the pounds at a good clip after that.
I have currently lost 55 pounds since April 8 when I started. I have about 45-55 more to go. Hoping that I can hit that before 2020.

My "smart" watch always thinks I'm riding a bicycle. You'd think that hitting 60+ mph would tip it off.
Great job, Jeff!

|Jeffrobombero||I'm down about 29 pounds now, coming on 7 weeks. Went to Texas Road house for me bday last night, and I overdid it on the peanuts I guess. But it was nice. I got a FitBit Charge 3, so apparently, another good argument for riding a motorcycle is because they are healthy. I got up this morning, rode into work and apparently, that was good for 2500 steps. Woohoo. I almost met my goal|

I haven't had any cravings for carbs, other than for my kryptonite, which is ice cream. So long as I am not hungry, it doesn't bother me really.
The last time I had any alcohol was my Guiness on tap when I was in Ireland, before that, probably years, so that isn't a problem either. Unless I decide to get some Canadian whiskey
Some weeks I lose a bunch, others maybe a pound or two. As long as it keeps dropping, I'll continue until I get down below my goal, then I'll move back to a healthy diet and see. I have such a sucky metabolism, I think my spirit animal is a sloth.

I couldn't do it.
No rice, no potatoes, no fruit?
More power to you.
