I am on my week two of keto diet. Need to do this kasi for my upcoming wedding.  BTW mga sisses,  I discovered a super okay na rice replacement: cauliflower!   I-food processor or blender lang until yung itsura parang rice na,  then i-cook with a little amount of olive oil and any seasoning/spice you want ( I use cilantro and some garlic powder).  Mas little smell pa rin sya ng cauliflower and syempre if kainin sya as is may konting cauli flavor pa rin, pero pag sinabay sa ulam, since malasa yung ulam, pwede na!  Natuwa ako sa kanya, kasi at least di ako feeling deprived na di makakain ng ulam at kanin, tapos healthy pa sya kasi cauliflower.

Hi Sisses, I'll start on keto diet today. Tuesday and Wednesday, I started weaning on rice, bread, soda and sweets na para di ako mabigla masyado sa 3 day kick start. Im excited kasi I've tried Atkin's before and I lost 20kg. So excited to lose weight kasi I've gained a lot due to PCOS. I'll update you on my progress. As of the moment, 105kg ako, so andami ko talaga dapat I-lose. :(

To Add: I feel better ngayon while I'm weaning off since I quit so much carbs. Di na ko sluggish at nagclear ang skin ko.

Wow dumadami na tayong keto gals dito!  Thank you so much for sharing your stories :)

Sa Monday pa ako start ng official keto kasi nagkasakit this Monday lang and still recovering.  But I started na din by removing carbs and sweets at home.  I told my hubby kung sakaling mag-crave sya ng pasta and sweets, bumili na lang sya sa labas ng good for one lang para di ako ma-tempt. 

@letters_to_cleo - I'll try your recipe for cauli rice.  Gumawa din ako nyan dati kaso di ko nabantayan and medyo nasunog yung cauli haha.  Kinain ko pa din kasi sayang pero lasang-lasa ko yung pagka-burnt nya  ;D

Curious though how you handle adhering to keto while dining out?

Alam mo sis, yan din ang isa sa mga ni-loo-look forward ko on this diet.  Gusto ko na maalis yung sluggish feeling lalo after lunchtime no?  And yung sa skin!  I read somewhere that if you eat too much sugar, your skin tends to have a gray tinge to it... na napansin ko din sa mukha ko kainis.  Parang nawala yung glow.

^ D ko pa naman naexperience yung gray tinge sa skin sis, or di ko lang pansin. :) Pero ako kasi pag sobrang dami kong nakakain na carbs and refined sugars, nagbbreak-out ako. Nagkakaroon ako ng pimples hindi lang sa face, kundi pati sa neck and back ko din. Pero since naeliminate ko na rice and refined sugars, nawala na yung pimples ko. Tsaka energetic na din ako sa work ngayon.  ;D Dati kasi parang buong araw akong inaantok. If I may add pala, I'm 1 year post partum at pansin ko mas mahirap ako maglose weight ngayon kesa nung di pa ako nabubuntis. Kaya excited ako sa Keto.

I tried this before pero when I went on a holiday I started to eat carbs again. I'm trying to eat low carb again. To satisfy my sweet tooth I made low carb desserts, trial and error, sometimes I tweak the recipe to satisfy my taste. There are low carb/keto recipes  posted online. My favourites are mug cake, pound cake. I still couldn't find a good recipe for bread that I like.
For breakfast, I eat bacon and eggs...salmon/meat and greens, so basically meat and salad lang naman but have to watch out the protein cause too much of it can be converted to carbs too.
I also temper dark chocolates para swak sa panlasa ko.
good luck and best result to all of us!

First day on Keto. I had bacon and eggs for breakfast. :) Then I have almonds for snacks, tuna in olive oil and more bacon as baon for work. Tomorrow I'll shop for chicken and pork para maiba naman. Where do you get your salmon sis?

Excited na ako mag-grocery for keto this weekend.  Me sis, I buy salmon from Shopwise or Rustan's (same group lang naman may-ari).  Yung Cold Storage na brand ok and reasonable naman ang price. Same tayo, I have a jar of unsalted healthy nuts here at work for snacks.  Iba-iba ba ang meals mo?  Parang di ko kasi kakayanin to prepare different meals daily so baka gawin ko na lang ulit is prepare 2 main dishes Sunday night, then portion these out for the week.  Bale yun na ang magiging main meal ko daily, i-alternate ko.  Breakfast na lang ang iiba-ibahin ko since onti lang ako kumain ng agahan.

Yes sis I have nuts na stash sa office. When I was on Atkin's sis, di din iba iba ang meals ko. I have my staple na tuna and eggs and bacon. Siguro 3 times in a week yan ang baon ko. Tapos the rest na 4 days in the week, yun na yung iniiba iba ko na yung baon ko. Like Adobo, Chicken Fajita without the peppers, chicken salad with iceberg lettuce. Yan yung mga favorite kong ulam. Ang hirap kasi magisip ng uulamin no sis? Haha. I also do chili con carne, chicken parmigiana, meatballs. Yan yung mga lagi ko niluluto. :) Mag ggrocery ako later ng tuna, eggs, olive oil and lettuce. Excited ako lagi mag grocery. Haha. I just ended my first day on Keto, GY shift kasi ako eh. And so far, im feeling great, not hungry at all. :)

Hi everyone,
I was searching the net for experiences/ reviews on the keto diet.
I got curious kasi when I came across it online.  Like one of the commenters here, I'm also a bit apprehensive about the "keto flu". Is it bearable naman? I'm just worried that it would affect my concentration sa work.
Thanks!

Hi everyone, I just started the ketogenic diet around 3 weeks ago. Surprisingly, no keto flu (yet???).

Pero I followed yung mga nabasa ko na kelangan magreplenish ng electrolytes. I add pink salt (Real Salt I bought from Healthy Options) in my water. Mga half a teaspoon/ liter.
Backread and use the search button.

By the way, my resources are Dr Jason Fung and Dr Eric Berg on youtube. I don't have time to read lately so I just listen to them while ironing clothes or washing dishes.

I will try this keto diet. Hopefully makayanan ko sya. How do you make your cauliflower rice? I made them before pero savory sya, mala stir fry with chicken. Ang hirap kasi kung walang alternative to rice kung puro ulam ang keto recipes  :( i will try to find keto "bread" recipes rin.

I started keto diet last March, at 58 kg.  Actually it's a combination of keto and IF diet. Usually nagfafast ako 14-18 hours. Grabe kasi breakouts, fatigue, gi and joint probs and migraine ko pag nasosobrahan ako sa carbs at sugar. I had that gluten and sugar face. May certain spot lang kung saan lumalabas pimples ko. Lol si ayun.. No refined sugar, no carbs, no soda. No exercise din kasi super tamad ko mag exercise. I never felt deprived din kasi meat lover and I love bacon and avocado. Haha Go fats! Lol After 3 months, I reached my goal na 48 kg. Nag clear up na din skin ko and no more migraines, joint pain, and fatigue. Nung mareach ko ang goal ko na weight.. That's when I started eating rice na ulit on cheat days. Kapag naman nasanay ka wala ng masyadong cravings and hunger pangs. Parang lifestyle na sya. Di mo na din masyadong hahanapin. After 5 months mini maintain ko na lang weight ko at 47 kg. :) So yes, for me, effective sya for those who want to lose weight, for those na may tendency na tumaas ang sugar at may food intolerances like me :)
live. love. laugh.

hello po, I just started IF and ketogenic diet, more greens, no sugar, less carbs and more protein and fat.

Is it ok to use any brand of butter?
Is it ok to eat whole wheat bread?

^ for the butter, preferably grass-fed, I was able to buy one at Echo store for 250. That's pricey for me just for a butter.  I use Anchor and it is the only butter I know that is grass fed available in supermarkets.

You cant eat any kind of bread while in keto except for keto breads - almond or coconut flour is used in these breads.  You can make your own. I saw recipes online that you can even make in a mug and microwave :)

thanks for the reply, I can't seem to find kerrygold here in doha but anchor is available. about bread I don't have time para gumawa ng bread, maybe its time to forget nalang kahit whole wheat pa sya.

How about hotdog kaya especially yung purefoods franks, is it okay to include in the diet?

^ as long as it doesn't have nitrates or msg in the list of ingredients, that should be fine. Again preferably, grass fed. same goes with bacon.

You may want to watch Dr Berg's videos.  :)
