Best of luck on your diet TL.  :happy1: One good thing about it is you're both doing it. When I've tried doing stuff like that flying solo in the past it's been doomed to fail. I get no support. :sad: My G&T's are relatively low carb tho. Manufactured w/Jack Rudy's tonic syrup at 1/2 oz + 5 oz club soda they're 5 gms of carbs (think Coors Light) vs. 15 gms when made with 5 oz Canada Dry or Schweppes tonic water.     

Or you could buy sugar free tonic water.... Schweppes even makes one.   

Tried that way back. Ick and I mean ick. They taste like  :censored: And they don't have nearly the amount of quinine that the stuff I'm using does. No thanks, I'll cut carbs somewhere else.

Bunny pee. Beer's good for ya. Replaces a sandwich. The bubbles clean out all the nasty stuff too, and keep ya well-oiled.  :toast:

Basically one of the few choices if limiting carb intake is a goal.   I don't drink it myself but I don't drink very many beers in a week.  Got a buddy that enjoys, given that his alcohol consumption is very limited due to medical reasons, one of the NA beers from Trader Joes.    Again, not my thing but it works for him.

I went on a Keto diet awhile back with my wife.  It worked very well.  I lost 35 pounds within 3 months.  Stuck to it all the way with no cheating.  My wife lost weight but not as much as I did.  Kind of bummed her out watching me loose weight while she lost it at a less rapid rate.  Guess that's common with women vs males.  I gave her plenty of support and that's important.  Went from beers to cocktails and that made a big difference also.  After meeting our goals we cheated a bit.  Diet during the week but on weekends party time.  That worked out well also.  Didn't gain a pound doing that.  i know some people who stay on it 7 days a week even after meeting their goal.  Fine, but I want to enjoy some of the food I normally make.  Life is too short for Keto 7 days a week.  Good to loose weight for a number of reasons but it's more about your health that tops the list.  good luck.

Thanks guys!
Been offline for a few days - in Duluth for a youth hockey tournament for my oldest son.  That was a BIG challenge for us, but we agreed we weren't going to go with the flow - and we did.  We did pack spinach salad and tried to make some healthy restaurant choices, but there were a few "cheats." We did gain back a little of what we lost in the cleanse but are still down.  We did not get home until late last night (we went to championship and took 2nd!) so we had no time to Grocery shop.  So we're in re-group mode this morning and will likely start the 3 week plan for the rest of the challenge tomorrow.  Appreciate all your kind comments and will keep everyone posted.  Will share any good recipes that come out of this on this thread.

Hand pattied Turkey Burgers tonight (no buns, no cheese). Easy enough to figure out and REALLY good. But the cucumber salad stole the show! Really simple and fresh. This will be a reoccurring side for awhile, I think. Would be even better in summer!

CUCUMBER SALAD:
1 cucumber diced
1/2 cup green onions diced
1 medium sized tomato diced
2 TB lime juice
1/4 tsp Kosher salt

Just mix in a bowl and serve!!

But it would still be full of cucumbers, one of the few things I rarely choose to eat.

Looks like a winner, Reb!  Definitely in my wheelhouse.

Had a great Crock Pot Chicken Burrito Bowl recipe for supper last night, I'll try to get around to posting the recipes when I get time, they're in a giant binder that contains not only all the recipes, but a bunch of nutritional info, etc.  So it's a lot to dig through.

Copied that recipe for the meatballs.  Thanks for the recipe.  There are zero sugar bbq sauces out there also.  Can't remember the name right now.  Have to looks for low carb marinara sauces also.  Reb your recipe sounds good also.  Have to try that one two.  good luck.

Yeah,
The Marinara sauce is organic, so it might be a little more expensive.  I find Aldi has great organic prices.  There's only a very small amount of natural sugar in it from the tomatoes and no added sugar.  I think it's some of the best canned sauce we've ever bought.

If we make these again, zootles will definitely be an addition.

[/quote]

Two weeks in - About 8lbs down so far :)  and that's with a little cheating when we had to travel over a weekend.  Otherwise, pretty much following to letter of the law.  Energy level is noticeably higher and I'm sleeping a LOT better than I used to.  I truly feel so much better, physically, than I did before I started this.  That all being said, I truly miss Carbs.  Potatoes in ANY form, Breads, Rice, Pasta....  I've never been a sweet tooth so the processed sugars aren't really an issue with me, but I've learned that even the "natural" carbs in the stuff I just listed are enough to make me daydream about food I can't eat on this plan.  OH... and BEER!!!  for the few drinks I've allowed myself, it's mostly been Tito's gluten free Vodka (which is really good vodka, actually) and club soda with lime juice and a lime wedge.  Fine, but it ain't beer and it ain't bourbon.

SO - My plan is to see this through - 2 weeks and hopefully a few more pounds to go.  By then we'll have gone through several more recipes (which most have been good to VERY good) to add to our normal rotation and just do a little bit better overall.  But believe me-you! There will be some indulgences when this is over, just a little less than before :happy1:
