My mum is trying to start a Keito diet so I've spent all evening researching it. I've made a cheat sheet that'll help her count carbs. I'm not going to do Keito but I am going to have a go cutting my carb intake down. I normally have oats for breakfast but they are very high carb so I need to find an alternative (or at least eat less as I might be eating too much), ideally vegetarian as I don't normally eat meat in the morning.

Now either I'm going crazy or that's way too low :dread: I don't think I've messed up the measurements.
The calories I took from the food packaging or google and the carbs I used the cheat sheet I sourced from that website last night to calculate net carbs.
Might have to eat a 4th meal later if those are correct. I only intended to stay under 100g carbs. I worked out today too so god knows how many calories I burnt off.

A medium Odeon salted popcorn is 609 calories. Learning this was a source of much sadness last night.

Thanks :D .

The local pool here has a decent system to set yourself some decent challenges.
There is a challenge to swim the Atlantic but that's 3,354.49 km and erm, I don't think I'm quite dedicated enough for that.

This thread's feeling a bit light without Brer. :(

My slow fitness journey is continuing. I'm 15KG down from my starting weight now, with 30KG more to lose to reach a healthy BMI. I'm aiming to eat 1750Kcals each day.

Hopefully by the end of August I will be overweight. :toot:

Nice going, Winckle. Losing 15kg is very good — losing 45kg will be a colossal achievement!

I'm feeling in pretty good shape at the moment. I'll never be anything like as strong as I used to be, but I take a lot of satisfaction in more general fitness than I used to, particularly running, as I have experienced the significant health benefits.

Just wish I could play more sport.

Lost 3 stone since the start of the year which was my initial goal. Still got a bit of a belly so planning to lose another 1/2 to 1 stone. Just CICO and walking my new dog.

Congrats, Winckle! That's a great achievement already, and some steady progress, too. That's one hell of a goal, but you're well on the way.

Can anyone recommend a decent little exercise bike? Something like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B072JWVX77/ ... dp_it&th=1

Lost 4kg between May 24th and today. I can live with that. Especially give the fact my current workout, which I've now been doing for 2 months, is 10 minutes shorter and less knackering than the one I was doing 5 months ago :lol:

:( *pours one out for Brer*

:lol: I know he isn't dead.

I've been on something of a slump recently. Not getting any better or worse but I need a boot up my ass in regards to diet. Unemployment is getting to me I guess and it's hard to get fired up as much as I'd like when finding work is constantly on my mind. I'm still exercising like 4/5 days a week but doing it at home is getting old, I miss the gym.

Then the bike should be good for you. My only issue with the one I bought (other than the electronic display not working) was how uncomfortable the seat was. I was having to adjust my sitting position every few moments and even then it wasn't a comfy seat. That could be an issue with any of those bikes, so you may want to do a ctrl-f search for seat, comfortable, etc to see what other people thought. (Personally, I would recommend you save yourself the cash and find some cardio workouts on YouTube instead.)

Yeah I already had one of those seat covers on my wish list since it looks uncomfy as strawberry float like every non-soft bike seat ever.
