Dinner last night was a Brussel sprouts bake that was fabulous and a way too large porterhouse steak. That's the largest meal I've had since i started back on the diet, so I skipped breakfast this morning before I hit the gym.

Diet Update: I'm now down 14 lbs with 5 lbs to go to my target weight. Unfortunately, my gut is still my biggest challenge as most of the weight has come from muscle loss in my chest, shoulders and arms. This is not new for me, as the gut is always the hardest and last thing to go. The diet & muscle loss are also impacting my workouts with at least a loss of 1 rep in each set. Again, this is not a deterrent, it's just part of the process to get where I want to be. Don't let initial muscle loss and/or workout struggles dissuade you from your goals.

Dinner last night was baked red snapper with a chipotle in adobo butter and cooling cucumber salad to tame the heat from the peppers. It was an easy, tasty light keto meal.

But shouldn’t the goal be to lose fat while maintaining as much muscle as possible? If one is losing muscle they are more than likely losing weight but not losing fat.

i cut 16 lbs last year and wither maintained strength on some compound movements or gained it on another. I had several powerlfiting meet prs or prs in general in a lighter weight class than the previous year

@RickyBobby_PR Absolutely, maintaining muscle should be the goal! Firstly, we are all different and respond to diets, exercise and lifestyle changes differently. Secondly, the older we get the more difficult it is to both build muscle & cut fat, and I ain't no spring chicken any more! Finally, for me personally, I don't care how much I weigh, I care about how my pants fit and how flat my stomach is. While one can target a specific area of their body for growth through exercise, the same cannot be said for reducing a specific stubborn fat area (men-guts, women-butt & hips) Doing endless sit-ups and crunches won't make your stomach disappear, if it did bodybuilders would have much easier time getting into competition form & I'd have lot less problem getting into my jeans.

This is true for any age. Unless one has a lot of weight to lose building muscle while in a caloric deficit isn’t easy. However consuming proper amount of protein and having that protein come from sources that contain all 9 essential amino acids or ensuring thru supplementation that the body is getting them in the amount of muscle loss is reduced compared to someone who doesn’t. Along with proper resistance training and to some extent cardio. This will help in making sure that while the scale is going down it’s coming from the harmful fats and not just a weight loss. They are two totally different things. 

Sayin one shouldn’t be dissuaded by muscle loss isn’t telling an accurate story. Most people myself included for a long time considered fat loss and weight loss the samething and as long as the scale was going done that’s all that mattered when in reality it’s not that simple.

Agree here as well. Target fat loss is a myth busted long ago. To the point of bodybuilders my points above are why when they cut for their shows they still have large amounts of muscle left despots dropping weight.

Dinner last night was a smoked salmon frittata. The eggs and cream cheese gave it a very interesting texture, but it was quite good. I added an additional egg and doubled the black olives to give it a little more substance and topped with green onions.

Any diet can get pretty bland after a while so eating and drinking things with different textures and flavors can help. I love the zero calorie sparkling waters from LaCroix and keep multiple flavors on hand at all times.

Dinner last night was grilled tuna with a loaded cauliflower casserole that was rich and delish! Mrs. H. had 3 helpings of the cauliflower and she's not even on the diet, though she may need to be after eating her normal junk food diet with all these keto foods.

I had my first drop of alcohol in 6- weeks last night with some wings. There are a lot more low carb alcohol options now available for keto folks including the seltzers, skinny cocktails and beer. I am not a fan of most of the no carb/no flavor beers, but Slightly Mighty from Dogfishhead is a great tasting IPA that come in at only 3.6 carbs.

Dinner last night was buffalo chicken stuffed peppers. They were very spicy and quite tasty. I used sugar-free buffalo sauce and cut it to 1/4 cup, cause I'm a wuss. I also used half the amount of onions to limit the carbs.

Diet update: I'm now 3 pounds from my goal weight, down 16 lbs total. Still struggling with that stubborn belly fat and a recent back strain has limited my ability to do ab work and high intensity workouts. I've been walking on the treadmill, riding the stationary bike and doing slow controlled weight lifting movements.

I found these zero carb egg & cauliflower wraps at ALDI yesterday and they are a game changer! I love wraps for weekend breakfasts & lunches as a change of pace, but flour tortillas are off limits. These wraps taste like eggs, pretty neutral, and while they are very thin and fragile held up well. Here I made a chicken wrap by placing some sliced chicken & cheddar cheese on the wrap and microwaved for 30 seconds and then added lettuce and some mayo.

Brussel Sprouts are a great low carb veggie that we eat at least once a week. Last night I made a creamy sliced sprout recipe that was very easy and a nice change of pace from the boiled or roasted variety. If you like creamed spinach you will enjoy this recipe as well.

Diet Update: I've been fluctuating between 2-3 lbs from my goal weight for the last week. My back is better, but still not ready for any high intensity workouts or ab work. It's amazing how easy it was to drop 15 lbs, yet the last 2-3 are stubborn as hell. Will keep on going, but we have some upcoming parties where wine will be tough to avoid.

Made some Keto fat bombs today. There are tons of fat bomb recipes online, but this is the standard base recipe. I double the recipe and instead of using Swerve I use 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder, which provides a more flavorful sweetness. I chop up the chocolate and roll the balls in it.

Dinner last night was keto fathead pizzas, with a diet/low sodium sauce, both recipes below. The nice thing is the pizzas will provide lunch through the weekend too!

https://www.wholesomeyum.com/recipes/fathead-pizza-crust-low-carb-keto-gluten-free-nut-free/

Diet Pizza/Pasta Sauce:

8 oz can low sodium sauce

2 TBS Tomato Paste

1/2 cup water

2 tsp Splenda or other keto sweetener

1/4 tsp garlic

1/2 tsp dried basil

Bring to boil, then reduce heat to low and partially cover with a lid. Cook for 1 hour, remove and let cool then place in an airtight jar. You just want to use a small amount over the pizza or it can become soggy.

Dinner last night was coconut crusted mahi mahi with a side of bacon roasted Brussel sprouts. The recipe called for salmon, but our stores have been wiped out of beef, chicken & fish the last 2 weeks, so I substituted the mahi and it had a really delicate flavor.
