NSV ALERT 🚨 I just bought some work pants probably 2-3 months ago. They fit in all the right places, but a bit tight in some areas. Typically when I wear these, I can wear them 2 days before I put them in the laundry(is that weird??) and they still fit very well. Tight in the right places, etc. I put them on today, and within 2 hours they were SO loose. I could pull from all angles and they would stretch so far. Looks like it’s time to buy more pants! #nsv#keto

Did you know that the first hour after working out... the food you put in your body.. is super important?! Why ruin a good work out with sugary items... instead help with recovery and fuel your body with something healthy and tasty! After an hour of kickboxing I was definitely looking forward to my spinach, arugula, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, and almond breaded chicken with balsamic dressing. #foodisfuel#keto#screwpcos#runnerintraining#imdoingthisforne#thisismyjourney#weightlossjourney

One of the reasons I was super excited to be part of the Keto Quick Start launch team is because @dianesanfilippo has some of my all-time favorite recipes. Y’ALL - I made my first recipe from Keto Quick Start tonight and it was AH-mazing. My husband and I had the Blackened Fish Tacos and we both cleaned our plates. These fish tacos were layered with flavor. The fatty, hearty salmon was balanced out with the brightness of the Spicy Citrus Slaw and the marinated red onions add a punch of umami. I may have gone a little over board with the avocado crema, but it was velvety and had the perfect amount of heat. #ketoquickstart#kqslaunchteam#keto#ketodiet
Fell off #keto this weekend with family Christmas. It was fun and worth it, though I let it slide into a carb binge and am now up ten pounds of swelling. ...ugh. #fasting needs to happen. Probably once I move past my #MRI tomorrow.
If you told me this time last year that I would be putting butter and coconut oil in my coffee, I would have laughed at you. But that’s what I’m drinking tonight. Served with minced bbq, pan heated with a little hot sauce mixed in, and broccoli and mushrooms sautéed in butter. #keto#bbq#cookathome#getnspicyupinhere
[The bidirectional emotional and immune response to stress]
In the absence of any stress, there’s emotional and immune congruence. The moment a challenge comes, the immune and emotion response jointly response. _ For example, when there’s an infection, there’s an increased immune response accompanied by adaptive behavioral shifts and emotions like, depression, malaise, loss of appetite, sleepiness, hyperalgesia, etc. This alone should be a clear reminder that the mind is not a separate entity. _ Things get very intriguing when there’s one side of the see-saw that’s dominant. _ Psychological states alter immune response, for better or for worse. Acute negative emotions, like when you left your headphones at the gym or a stranger instigates an argument, causes a risk in NK cells number potentially becoming disadvantageous. Ironically, positively felt emotions alter NK cell activity, which could be advantageous. _ Loneliness and depression has been shown to change immunity manifested by reactivation of EBV, which may in turn reinforce the emotional state. States of bereavement and grief demonstrate a drop in NK cell response. The immune changes could reinforce the emotions as well. _ What confounds this whole construct is that traumatic events and their emotions may have their own ”gene signature“ creating intricate and specific immune responses in more ways we know at the moment. _ On the other side, when there’s immunological dysfunction, there’s a compensatory emotional response. The immune cells, namely the T-cells, have been identified to produce cytokines that change behavior as seen with CD4 suppression in HIV patients. Modalities, like massage, increase CD4 and thus, improve mood.
In the context of autoimmunity, how these T-cells contribute to the typically seen mental disorders is unclear. However, I have seen studies that suggest this immunological mechanism may be involved in promoting eating disorders in subjects with autoimmunity.
This is why you see me drawing on the eating disorder autoimmune connection that I am so deeply invested in and guess what? Mental health - conscious and subconscious mostly - apply to both condotions.
Starving and didn’t take the time to get a really good picture, but this pork chops was crazy good!!! All I did was season each side with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Dipped in egg and then dredged in....whey protein isolate!!! I fried this in bacon grease and served with my favorite dipping sauce - mayo with a touch of SF BBQ sauce. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

No idea when the left photo was taken, courtesy of my daughter at however many months old. (I screenshot photos even if I have them stored 23.9 times cause I’m a lazy pos) whatever.
So here is my difference from point A to point B.
Happy when my mentality is going. I’m more self-aware of how and who I am and though it’s a BITCH changing, it’s clear what needs to be done- and I’m excited what 2019 brings.
Also, thanks @i.eat.a.lot.of.cheese for all your words, always. 🥰😁

I may sound like a broken record at times since I know new people are always looking to learn about keto and hear others experiences.
For the past year my fibromyalgia was at its absolute worst. Every single day I was in so much pain. The added weight I put on certainly hadn’t helped with my fibromyalgia but it was not the cause. My symptoms came on when I was actually the most fit I had been in my life, active at work as a server. The only difference between then and now, besides a job change, is diet. Even though I was thinner back then and active I certainly wasn’t healthier. I ate poorly more often than not.
I strongly believe one of the sources of fibromyalgia, at least for me is food sensitivities. I had test done, so not only have I followed keto pretty strictly for the last 5 months but I have eliminated many foods from almonds to mushrooms to sol fish and more that set off inflammation in the body. My body because not all people have the same food sensitivities.
I can’t thank the Keto community enough for getting the word out and helping people like myself change our lives once and for all! The only advice I have if you’re just getting started is to practice patience, try not to compare yourself to others, the first month or so your weight may come off quickly and slow down with time, it’s not a race, don’t beat yourself up over slip ups or cheat days. Just keep going. Every day is a fresh start. Eventually it will just click and become easier.
Also I like the KISS method (Keep it simple silly). You don’t need to make extravagant recipes to follow keto.
Side note I actually really appreciate all the keto recipes you guys post. It’s gratifying to know this way of life isn’t THAT limited as some think. And also gives some great tips and inspiration.
Five guys lettuce wrapped burger. You can also get a burger bowl. It’s a great option. I like it but I think it’s too expensive. Their price was already high but it went up. This one was $10.30 - nothing else, just the burger. It was good but not ten bucks good. Just my opinion!
***Update, I found my receipt and it was actually $10.61. This was in Nashville TN
