Join us for a 13 weeks of FUN, challenging ourselves to be healthier & leaner & stronger than ever before!

This challenge is only 13 weeks, just 3 months, only 90 days. It’s enough time to break bad habits, create new habits, improve your health dramatically, lose a substantial amount of weight, and feel amazing!

The timing is perfect to be leaner & looking awesome for Summer! 🙂

The challenge: To eat low carb for 90 full days!

That means: 20 net carbs per day max, 70% fat minimum.

By committing to this challenge you agree to stay on track for 90 days by eating 20 net carbs per day MAX, and at least 70% of your calories in healthy fats.

Spring Low Carb Challenge To-Do List

1. Weigh yourself first thing in the morning. This is the only true weigh, as your weight fluctuates 5 pounds or more throughout a single day. Post/Log your starting weight today.

2. Set up MyFitnessPal and record your weight there, and also log all of your meals.

This is how I have MyFitnessPal Set Up To Track Net Carbs.
That only works online, not on mobile/tablet.

3. Take body measurements as well, and record those in MyFitnessPal too.

Sometimes you’ll lose more inches than pounds, and it’s another great way to track your progress!

4. I highly recommend you take a “before photo” today. You’ll regret not having pictures to compare! Sometimes the scales may not show much loss, but comparison photos tell a different story. 🙂

5. Read The 8 links above. Educate yourself on how the Low Carb Diet (and this challenge) works!



Do These Steps:

  • Sign up by email at 90DayLowCarbChallenge.com
    This will put you on the list to receive official challenge updates. This is not the same as Facebook emails from the group, so make sure you subscribe if you haven’t already!
  • Read the Pinned Post in the Facebook Group
    Plus the Getting Started links I shared above. This will eliminate A LOT of repeat questions! 🙂 The Group Rules are posted there as well.

^ Make sure you have all of these steps covered!



Here’s to an AWESOME challenge together! 🙂 *cheers*

I want to help you every step of the way. I’ll be here for you, and like always I’ll share tips & ideas & thoughts with you along the way to help you through all of the challenges of losing weight and getting healthy.

    I have tried to join you before but fell off track. I have been watching my A1C rise and spoke to my doc and I am now in the prediabetic range. I also want to use Keto to help control my migraines as well as the weight loss that will put me into a healthy bmi. So, starting weight:170lbs, goal at the end of 3 months: 150lbs, ultimate goal: 135lbs.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      • Jen says:

        Is this the proper thread for participant conversation? Or is most of the fun going on on Facebook? I am not a part of Facebook so if I have missed a more appropriate space to converse and get to know other participants aside from Facebook please post the link.

  4. Amarilys Patterson says:

  7. Alanna says:

    Good afternoon! I started following you on instagram in February. I want to feel good again. I am so fatigued and depressed from carrying around extra pounds. I have had Lupus since I was a teenager and prednisone is my biggest frienemy! It helps to get my flared under control but creates an increase in appetite! I want my life back!! I am tired of staying sick and depressed. I am excited about taking this journey with you. I want to be able to do anything I want and not hurt the next day! I currently weigh 174.4. I am 5″4. I think I felt my best around 135 pounds. I need to lose around 40 pounds. Thanks in advance for your support in this step I am taking to get my health back!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Alanna 🙂 KUDOS for taking control of your health!! That first step is a BIG one, so congrats! How are things going now?? Have you researched the effects of a ketogenic low carb diet on Lupus symptoms? I imagine if you’re a month in now… you’re seeing happy results. 🙂

  8. Thanks for doing this Low Carb Challenge, Lynn!
    I also tried helping spread the word by linking to this page from my website.

    My partner and I just kicked off a 30- keto cleanse, per the book by the same name, on 4/3… So this is perfect timing!

  12. POOJANJOT says:


    I have completed first week of Spring challenge and has reduced only 1 pound.

  13. Jen says:

    I have lost a pound as well! Yay for us!! There was one day I had more like 30net carbs but the rest have been as planned and I feel good. I bought Keto stix to play with and finally today hit moderate ketosis. It is getting easier to make smart low carb choices, and I find my cooking for a family of 5 doesn’t need to change all that drastically, I just make them a side or two that don’t eat and instead choose extra veggies or add a slice of cheese, a fried egg or a heavy whipping cream dessert on to my meal. Keep up the good work everybody.

    I would like to join your low carb challenge

  16. Nicgelle says:

    Is it to late to join since its after April 3rd? I did not read anywhere if there was a cut off day to join?
    THANKS for all you do!!

  17. Julie says:

    Starting weight 170.2

  18. Jen says:

    Start weight was 170lbs.
    Current weight 164lbs.
    Feeling good! It is amazing to me that I have made it through 2 weekends of this. Usually the weekend is where I screw up and eat all the baking or ice cream or anything in front of me. But I made it! Moving forward feels nice.

My size blew up from 18/20 to 28/30 what is so embarrassing &i desperately desire to get back toy former size or even below that. Now, having joined the group and inspired by WHT I’ve been seeing, how do I receive the daily menu/ timetable to follow religiously in order to get the desired results pls? Thank you.
