I’m Back! 🛫 Weigh-In Day & Quick Catch Up… ❤


 

I’m back! 🙂 If you missed the “traveling low carb” updates & tips I shared along the way, you can find those on my Facebook Page – or on my Instagram.

I had a great trip home! 🛫🌞

Lynn Terry : Traveling Low Carb

There’s so much I want to share with you about the week, like where I stayed (!!) and the reasons behind my low carb food choices, tips for traveling low carb & more…

First I’m getting settled in & rested up – and of course waiting anxiously for all 3 keto boxes to arrive this week!! 🙂 It’ll be fun to see what we get this month! 🎁

I got home still in ketosis and weighing LESS than when I left. 💪👍 Yay!

I tested using the new ketone strips I talked about in my last post. – I scored us a promo code for them too, and these are a better brand and a GREAT deal.

Anyway, it felt GREAT to get so much exercise and to stay on track through the entire trip and come home feeling happy and lean! ❤

The photo above is me in San Diego right before boarding my first flight home.

The bag is AmeriLeather (I got mine on Amazon) and it’s been a great carryon, overnight bag, and tech/laptop bag for all my gadgets when working mobile. Very multi-purpose & useful – and pretty. 😉

Stay tuned… I have more great low carb restaurant swaps & tips, ideas for low carbing on the go, and simple snack solutions.

I would love to hear an idea you liked from my Facebook & Instagram shares this week while traveling, or something you plan to try yourself, like: iHop, party trays, low carb restaurant meals, easy snacks, weird combos (lol)…

I have more fun keto-on-the-go tips & updates to come… so stay tuned! 😉

For now, I have lots of work to catch up on, tons of messages to answer, etc etc… *cheers* 🥂

    I’m down 1 pound this week but have given up facebook for Lent. Slow and steady wins the race.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      That’s great, Kathy! A pound a week is actually a GOOD rate of weight loss. 😉 When I was losing a pound a week, or even 2-4 pounds a month consistently, I found that to be really good progress.

      It all depends on where you are in your weight loss journey, of course. The last 20 pounds was the slowest to come off for me. I think it’s the MOST challenging, lol.

      But weight loss is not linear, it happens in phases it seems, with periods where your body plays catchup. And then of course there are other factors sometimes too: hormone cycles (even for men), medication, stress, sleep quality, certain foods, etc.

    I have been doing Keto for about 9 mos. now. I have lost 30#. For the past 3 mos. I have been stuck in a stall, and it appears now I am even going up on the scales. I was wondering if you have had the same type of situation in your experience and what you may have done to get beyond it. I need help from somewhere. Eating eggs, meat, nuts, cheese, HWC, coffee & sweet-n-low. I drink lots of water with Mio or Styr added. (Occastionally have pork rinds).
    I am 4’11” and currently weigh 163-up from 158 low. I have adjusted macros to 1000 cal/ day
    and wind up eating about 1000-1200. I stay at 20 carb or less net carb, and most days get enough fats. Help please….At my wits end.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Shareon,

      For now, stop counting calories. Mine are usually higher than that and I do fine. Under 1200 is too low. Just keep it really simple: 20 net carbs max, and 70% fat minimum. Eating *at least* 70% fat is KEY.

      I assume you’re tracking with MyFitnessPal or another app?

      Limit your nuts and cheese for a couple of weeks and stick to eggs, meat & greens with plenty of healthy fats. For nuts, eat pecans – they are super low carb / high fat compared to other nuts. Otherwise good sources for fats are: butter, avocado, salmon, mayo, egg salad, tuna salad, etc.

      Keep it super simple, very few ingredients per meal and no products or processed foods. I find that helps me break a stall every time! 🙂

      I call it “3IMAX” – see: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/6064/3-ingredients-rule/ Works like a charm! 🙂

    I really enjoy all of your posts. Your meals look great, my question to you is in the beginning what did your meals and snacks look like? If you have a post on this can you provide the link? I am having a hard time in between meals. Sometimes I’m genuinely hungry and other times I think I just want to snack because I’m bored. I have tried using lemon herb tea or black coffee to survive these times until I can get my body to adjust but sometimes it’s hard.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Temeka!

      You shouldn’t be hungry at all eating low carb. Are you tracking, and making sure you’re getting at least 70% fat? That’s key – if you eat super low carb, your body uses fat for energy. And if you don’t get enough fat your weight loss will stall too. That will put you in ketosis, which is a natural appetite suppressant too. 😉

      I talk about all of that, and have some low carb food lists too, on the Getting Started page: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/start-low-carb-diet/

      The link I shared above in my last comment has some good meal ideas too, from my plates a few years ago:

      My food diaries here go back to 2011 (7 years) so feel free to browse through the archives for even more ideas. 😉
