    Chocolate mug cake with salted caramel drizzle! And fully KETO :yes:

    I thought I’d keep posting my meal updates here but I find it’s become a distraction on the site, making it look more like a food website :haha: . I’ll still update this thread from time to time, just to track my progress.

    Hi all!

    I won’t be updating this thread anymore. For an update on my KETO journey, you can follow my new dedicated Instagram account (@didi_ketojourney).

    I’ll still be updating my daily meals and weekly weigh-in updates in my Food Diary.

    KETO on, folks! Good luck with your journeys :good:

    O.M.A.D SABOTEURS
    Sooooo, after my first week of O.M.A.D, I didn’t get a great result at all. I only lost 0.6kg :dohh: . After a lot of reflection, I realised what my saboteurs were. I don’t know if anyone is reading this thread, but if anyone is, you can learn from my mistakes.

    Here are the mistakes I made last week and which I won’t be repeating…[Read more]

  • DAY THIRTY-FIVE (JUNE 11, 2020)

    Took a break from O.M.A.D today, as per weekend. But also because I was discouraged with my weigh-in today. I lost a measly 0.6kg :cry: . I’ve realised I sabotaged myself in a few ways…the Ketones, the fat bombs, no exercise, not enough water. Na wa! Now I know what to different next week. Still going to do O.M.A.D,…[Read more]

    Today wasn’t bad at all :yes: :yes:

    I broke my fast at about noon. I couldn’t drink tea so took 2 SlimFast fat bombs instead.

    Jumia ( @jumai ) dear, how are you today?

    Doctor Sharon got back to me. Here’s what she sent:

    The lining was getting thicker while on Buserelin ma, she must have had a cyst ma, that’s the only explanation. Where else will the estrogen be coming from?
    Sometimes some lining would refuse to thin out but not growing thicker
    Is she for a Frozen E…[Read more]

  • Jumia ( @jumai ) dear, it’s easier to respond to you via the thread.

    I spoke to Dr. Sharon, and she wanted to know when you started your cycle; day 1 or day 21. She also wanted to know if you have any cysts.

  • Toun ( @toun ) dear, so sorry about your failed cycles. :hug:

    It’s so unfortunate how as the years go by, empathy wanes more and more. 10 years ago when I started my own journey, there were still doctors who still had a heart for their patients. My doctor was all shades of awesome back then, but even he too has yielded to the forces of economics…[Read more]

    With the success of last week’s fat fast, I’m going to switch things up next week with O.M.A.D :yahoo:

    For those who don’t know, O.M.A.D. means one meal a day, so it’s mainly intermittent fasting and ensuring that, even with the one meal, you still meet your macros of 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carbs.

    I’ll also continue exercising and…[Read more]
