    I am a bit confused with net carbs…I have been using MFP app to keep track…I think that I have been following total carbs. Could you please help me out with the difference?? Thank you

  2. Tracey says:

    Can’t wait to start

  3. Karen Aebischer says:

    Are almond flour and coconut allowed on the challenge?

  4. Kanan says:

    Lynn, thanks for oraganising this… I needed this kickstart. After being on LC and losing around thirty kgs I had lost all motivation to do it suddenly… and gained back around ten kilos back… here I saw this challenge and bingo i am all set to get back now. Thanks.

  5. Rae Taylor says:

    I had a question about the kiss method. My intention during this challenge is to have the minute muffin(1/4 cup of flax meal, an egg and 1TBS of butter) with either chicken thighs or burger patties, mayo or avocado.

    Would you say that this combo is acceptable for this method?

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Rae,

      The goal is to keep it as simple as possible, which cuts out of a lot of “carb creep” problems and food combination issues that can stall weight loss. I personally don’t count “ingredients” like butter, mayo, coconut oil, olive oil, etc – as they have no carb count. Your meal sounds fine to me. 🙂

  6. G says:

    How do I confirm my email address? I got an email from you and it says make sure to confirm 🙁 don’t know how!

  7. Mary Beth says:

    Really excited about this17 day challenge! Trying to get rid of the last 10 for the last month and it’s been sooo hard!! Feeling really positive about this!!

  11. Fran says:

    Hi Lynn, Is there a page where we log our weight to keep track?

  12. Lynne says:

    Just wondering how often my low carb friends weigh?

    • Lynn Terry says:

      I weigh every day, but only once a day – and only first thing in the morning (right after you pee). Any other time of day is not an accurate weigh, as your weight can fluctuate at least 5 pounds in a single day – so there’s no sense weighing after your morning step on the scales.

      In the challenge, we do a weigh in once a week. I think you should do whatever is comfortable for you personally. If it bothered me to weigh every morning, I wouldn’t do it. 🙂

      If my scales don’t move, or move the wrong way, it motivates me that much more! If my scales do move down, I feel motivated. lol – so it works for me either way.

    Two questions
    1 if eating out at a fast food that gives nutrional values with buns, how do you subtract the bun ( you didn’t eat)(or wrap ie dunkin donut breakfast wrap)
    2. Following 3 item meals is 2 eggs and 2 sausages ( 2 items(eggs and sausage) or 4 pieces of food)

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Carol,

      That would be two items – eggs and sausage. Not the quantity, but the ingredients. 🙂

      When logging your foods, do a search like “arby’s roast beef no bun” or go to Arby’s website to get the nutritional value without bun (just take the checkmark off the bun when you calculate the nutrition facts for your “meal”) then go to MFP and type in “Roast Beef” and put in the number of ounces and double check the nutrition info.

      MFP is used so heavily that 1) there are inaccuracies due to human error – so always double check values. And 2) Almost everything is already in there. 🙂

    Is it ok to use sugar free jello?

  18. Mary Kay Thompson says:

    Lynn, am I right that we are to avoid Cheat Days and Intermittent Fasting as part of this WOE? There is a thread going on right now – here I am again, the big tattle tale – recommending intermittent fasting. if it’s OK, fine. If not………

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Mary Kay,

      I don’t personally advocate cheat days or fasting because I don’t feel it’s healthy for your body. I recommend eating clean, staying on a ketogenic low carb diet, and not shocking your body. It’s better to just “feed yourself good food” and lose weight as a result – vs trying drastic measures just to lose weight.
