Once my heart doctor explained that the way I can lose weight is by not eating carbs, I tried it & verified by my own experience that he is right about that.
I actually got down to a healthy weight & my clothes fit better.
Then when the covid-19 shutdown hit, my healthy regimen slipped away & disappeared. Resumed gobbling down carbs. Quit going to the gym. Predictable results.
Yes, it was during the covid-19 shutdown. No, the shutdown is not the cause. I have no one to blame but myself. (Shux upon me.)
What's most vexing is that so far I am unable to summon the motivation (or whatever it takes) to regroup & move back to something more like the healthy routine that was working so well for so long.
Knowing what the problem is & knowing what I need to do about it aren't enough. Something else is needed that's beyond my current grasp. The part that's missing is still missing.
So it goes.

Just saw this. Talking about diet. We started diet 24 months ago when I don’t fit to my cloth after weeks of vacation from Hawaii. I lost 17 lb in about 4 weeks. After that we changed to low carb diet. I maintain BMI to be 20. We are doing well with the the low carb diet. We eat moderate meat and cheeses, lots of vegetable and fruit. We cut bread, pasta and rice (use more vegetable serving for it). The blood work show all is good. Cholesterol is higher but HDL is high 98. Triglycerides is 69 and LDL is higher because we love shrimps, lobster crab cake and scallops. (I personally don’t like fish), eat salmon occasionally. We stopped eating deserts other than ice cream. use stevia and monk fruit to make keto cookies with almond flour. We buy everything organic, no preservative. Our weight goes higher during vacation when we eat outside and sometime
we have fresh baked bread with butter and pastries. But alway lost the weight we gain in a few days on low carb. We think the low carb diet is good for us.
Knowing some vegetable and fruit are high in carb but it is much better than bread, pasta, rice, cookies. If we have choice, we stick to low carb fruit (strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, avocado….and veggie of broccoli, broccoli babe, kale, cabbage, Cauliflower…). We eat dark chocolate. Sometimes making keto cookies using stevia and monk fruit. We always buy fresh organic and read ingredients on the label. You need to have a healthy body to enjoy travel.
