This borders on the poetic, Stewchi! It sure hits the nail on the head anyhow!

There are lots of great drinks, hot and cold, with and without caffeine if you make 'em yourself. It's easy. Throw in 5-6 large (green/black/earl grey/something like Constant Comment with orange peel; mint, camomile, whatever pleases you) tea bags into a big drink pitcher & just let it sit for a few hours, in or out of the sun. Refrigerate & drink when you please. Stevia is a very sweet, low carb alternative to sugar. Brew very strong coffee & refrigerate, for ice tea.

These all are flavorful if you use enough teabags, and strong tea can always be diluted.

More benefits: These are all much cheaper than diet coke, friendlier to our battered environment & require less energy consumption (no bottles, little transport cost)

Just like any bad breakup there will be grieving but eventually you wont even want it anymore and life will be that much better anyway. Other dink ideas: I put a little davinci or Torino syrup in carbonated water sometimes to drink mostly the coconut or mint flavor cause I am weird but you could use cherry orange or other normal flavors, I also drink the stevia sweetened cola, I used to hate diet coke, stopped all sweets tried a diet coke thought it was amazing 4 months later I donít like it causes its too sweet. Unsweet Vanilla Almond milk is good (made from almonds) coconut milk, heavy cream, soy milk, flaxseed milk, hemp milk. Your taste will change and you wont miss the old stuff. Had burdock root for dinner few weeks ago, (I know its a root but its good for Bg and didn't spike me) saved the water it was boiled in, chilled it makes a nice Ice Tea, sounds strange I know but just goes to show you there are all kinds of things you can come up with if you get creative. I found hersheys sugar free syrup (sweetned with Erythitrol) mixed with vannila almond milk and heavy cream taste just like a cookies and cream milk shake, and will fill you up in a hurry. I also make juice from vegitables, I have a stevia plant and found green beans and wheat grass, stevia etc have a sweet taste when juiced, mix those with other veggies to make a nice vegie juice, sounds gross but its not and I don't like to eat a lot of veggies (getting better about it, I am liking stir fried more and more, and salad loaded with avacado, olives, cheese and olive oil)
well got agave syrup and stevia, but never really tasted the stevia, the sucrin seem to be better in old foods i been eating, i guess i need vegetables to add to it? or soy? will check the recipe section for what i can find in the store.

You may want to avoid processed soy, lots of hormone crap there.

thanks. well i wonder if there is a upper limit of calories or fat that is unhealthy when trying to lose weight? my current diet has been today:

10 slices of bacon, 3 egg, 1,5 dl sour cream, 1,5 dl creme fraiche, like 50g peanuts with 13g carb, i worked out for an hour running and current weight is 200+, i had some bad stomach issues while working out, and the bad taste has come up a few times today, drinking diet coke. i'm currently gaining weight, but might be just the carbs and that it will even out tomorrow. had sweating 2 times today. is it normal to get ringing ears while ketogen? i also had some 4g juice. i believe the stomach pains stopped when eating more fat.

hmm. about 30g carbs, with 10g fiber, 112g proteins, 173g total fat.

carb: 30*4=120 calories(5,7)
proteins: 112*4=470 calories(22%)
fat: 173g*9=1542 calories (73%)
total: 2100 calories
still bit too little proteins i guess.

If you eat full fat sour cream and full fat creme fraiche this diet will give you

calories 2051
protein 62,45
fat 194
carbs 13,5

according to Gratis online dagbok for diett, slanking og kosthold

There is absolutely nothing of vitamine C in your diet, and also you have to little fiber that your stomach would like it. Vitamin C you can find in lots of vegetables (and carbs should mostly come from vegetables) Paprika for example is rich in vitamin C.

Also you eat to little proteins.
Protein is used to maintain and build muscles and you should try to eat 1-1,5 gram of protein for each kilo of your weight.
Fiber you can find in for example broccoli or also if you make crackers (the recipe is in the recipe-section).

I would have used more fat fish and coconut-oil (that kind of fat is better for your body) and I would absolutely had some vegetables.
Do you eat only bacon and sourcream/creme fraiche for dinner, breakfast and lunch???
If you eat so boring food, LCHF must be torture.

When you start to eat LCHF the thumb rule is that you dont have to see at the calories for the first weeks. You eat until you are full every time you are hungry and you have to drink a lot of water. If your weight wont drop after a couple of weeks, then you start to look at the calories.

i forgot to add 60g purre(added this in the calculation), and crush cider(pomegranate) 2g pr 100g carb, to the list. the diet is weak in d vitamins i believe, and i had the creme fraiche last night not today apparently my memory is a bit slacking, but yeah i'm a bit off 130g proteins(too little fish and eggs), and should probably skip the nuts, but get a bit more vegetables with vitamins in, i also added mackerel to the omelett(i forgot).
if i going down to 20g carbs, removing the nuts and the pomegranate cider in exchange for some fiber, put the fish in the omelett, i wonder what will be missing? i'm trying to rmeove all breadstuff in diet, to get used to live without it. spinach might be a good addition.

broccoli, paprika seem to be good equalents but also spinach to get calsium needed, together with folat. tofu is quite nice. last time i was dieting, 250g of chocolate and 250g of spinach once, giving me most what i needed.
