    I also have been working on the keto diet to lose weight. I've also been trying to limit my caloric intake to about 1550 per day. I work shift work and regular exercise is tough. I dropped 20 pounds easily but hung out at around 240. When I went out of town for work I gained 10 pounds back. I have recently started better portion control and the last 4 days have limited my calories to about 1100. I've lost 2.5 pounds without exercise. I'm about to go ride my bike for about an hour now. I eat a healthy smoothie/shake when I wake up and eat about 6 oz grilled chicken with veggies for lunch and salad for dinner. I also eat apples and other fruit for snack instead of peanuts or almonds because it's more filling. I'm also drinking much more water per day. Twice a day I pour a Keto OS powder in a glass of water to drink to help with ketosis. My ultimate weight goal is a modest 200 lbs.

    You need to stop having a cheat day and limit it to 1 cheat meal per week

    Calorie deficit, energy balance

    If your brain begins to understand that the bad food you eat is hurting is easier to avoid bad food choices

    I'm well aware of the shitty meal choices lol. Last cheat day was awful.

    i haven't counted calories but I'm probably sitting around 1000 calories. I'm sure if I exercised more I would work up more of an appetite.

    I probably used to consume 5000-10000/day

    If you are 100% honest and log everything you eat, you might have a wake up call as to how many calories your are taking in with food and drink

    If you want to effect any real change in any part of your life, you have to be able measure it first ....

    Everyone has their own methods to fight weight...but most of the problem is in their head. I started what I called a chili diet a couple months ago, and it's worked well for me. I hunt feral hogs regularly, and started saving some of the meat and cutting it up into bite sized pieces for making chili. I add lots of green chili to the pot, along with beans, tomato sauce, etc....
    I figure the pork is protein, the beans are fiber and the green chili helps keep the whole thing working it's way through my system. I had a fairly good sized bowl of the chili with some club crackers once a day and did coffee and flavored water for the rest of the day. Occasionally I have a small bowl of dry roasted peanuts mixed with dried cranberries for a snack.
    I started the diet at 246 lbs. and now I weigh just under 200 and feel great for a 73 yr. old guy.
    To each his own and you just have to establish something that has a chance of working for you and you can wrap your brain around.

    I downloaded the "Myfitnesspal" app on my phone. you scan the barcode on your food or you can search restaurants by location and it counts your calories carbs fat protien iron vitamin a vitamin c and sodium and sugar and a lot of othe stuff... ive been doing that for a little over a week and ive lost 5 lbs so far. we'll see how well it works after a month...

    Get yourself a Fitbit activity tracker and set it for you to be at a decent calorie deficit like 500-700 day
    It will track how many calorie you are burning through the day and you can adjust your eating according to that

    People lose weight when the expend more calories than they eat over a period of time.
    That is the science behind it.
