    Ok, well...first of all...Hi everyone! Hopefully this isn't something that makes your eyes roll into the back of your head too much...so here it goes.
    I feel so stupid after being on Reddit for a good while now, and only after buying into the ForeverGreen Ketopia product, realizing that I should've probably come here to research what I was getting into first. Ugh. I trusted a friend too much, and did it to both help him and hopefully start down a new path to health.
    This post both makes me feel like an idiot, and somewhat encouraged because if this stuff that just arrived at my doorstep yesterday pushes me towards a proper keto diet, than all is not lost.
    Having said that, I'm 1/2 way through my first day on the product and I can say I somehow have way more energy than I normally do, even though I only had 5.5 hours of sleep last night (4 kids...2 pre-teens & 2 babies).
    I've played around with the keto calculator and honestly don't know what I'm doing with it, and have read countless posts of amazing stories from great people who have chosen this lifestyle with awesome results. I AM excited and encouraged.
    A bit of info about me: I'm 44, 6'2", 230lbs. I am very strong when I need to be, but I'm also constantly tired. I've not been that active in a while, but I really want to change my physical condition to somewhat close to what it was 15 years ago (when I was very active) without spending tons of time in the gym. I can find an hour per day, so I'm not saying exercise is out, but I am saying...well, I need a plan. What I don't need are the thousands of excuses I've been giving myself for years now. I need your help!
    Here are my 2 questions: should I bother with this product and the 10-day "reset" program (that gives zero info on how to continue the diet/lifestyle afterwards) and just keep learning from this sub about how to keep going afterwards, or should I just dump it and follow the info in this sub instead? After making one or the other decision, how do I make sure I stick to it by following it correctly, not overdoing it, and ultimately stopping?
    Thank you very much for whatever suggestions you can give. My family and I really appreciate it.

    General newbie advice -
    Electrolytes, electrolyte, electrolytes, follow the guidelines in the FAQ!
    Read the FAQ a few times
    Learn what you are doing, why you are doing it and how you are going to do it
    Read labels and ingredients and ask questions at restaurants; trust nothing, question everything, carbs are fairly ubiquitous
    Look before you eat - look up the information online or read the label before you put food in your mouth
    Follow the plan and let it work. Plateaus happen, accept it and KCKO (keep calm, keto on). Take measurements and pictures.
    Get rid of any foods you will not be eating
    Think about what you can eat and not what you can't eat - there's no need to feel limited on keto, yes an entire food group limited but you can eat as you otherwise would just exclude the carbs don't overcomplicate it - keto is nothing more than real food minus the carbs
    Avoid substitutes, fully embrace a new way of eating
    Commit to the plan and focus on the non-scale victories and benefit as well
    Read the FAQ and follow the electrolyte guidelines as well as drink a lot of water
    Plan ahead - plan your meals, snacks at home, at work, in the car
    Avoid ketosis anxiety - if you overeat carbs or fall off the wagon, get right back up, learn from it and move on. You will be back in ketosis before you know you weren't. No need to stress about it, focus on how you feel.
    It's not ratios, it's net grams
    Limit to 20 net grams carbs
    Meet your protein goal set based on activity and lean body mass
    Eat fat to satiety unless eating at a high deficit
    Here's my comprehensive grocery list (items in bold be top choices for my first shopping trip):
    Eggs
    Avocados
    Heavy cream, half and half, almond milk, coconut milk, sour cream, yogurt
    Coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, butter, ghee, duck fat, tallow, schmaltz, bacon grease
    Vegetables: broccoli, cauliflower, artichokes, green beans, kale, spinach, swiss chard, eggplant, lettuce, zucchini, mushrooms, asparagus, cabbage, bok choy, spaghetti squash, fennel , brussels sprouts, collard greens
    Various hard and soft cheeses, cream cheese
    Nuts and nut butter
    Various salami and deli meat
    Meat: chicken breast, chicken thigh, whole chicken, pork shoulder, pork loin, pork belly, bacon, goat, lamb, steak (sirloin, ribeye, flank, hanger, flat iron, chuck), ground beef
    Fish: shrimp, crab, salmon, tuna, sardines, swordfish, mackerel, mahi mahi, cod, canned fish
    Bouillon cubes or bones for homemade stock
    I would sit down, use the keto calculator in the sidebar to set your calorie and macros, plan your meals, add them to MFP, and start, you'll learn as you go
    Meal ideas - http://www.reddit.com/r/keto/comments/o6vei/here_it_is_the_unofficial_tell_me_what_to_eat/
    Keep it simple, try not to think of keto as particularly special, yes an entire macro group is limited but I just cook and exclude the carbs so don't limit yourself to keto-specific recipes - lettuce wrapped burgers, deli meat and cheese wraps, scrambled eggs, omelet, quiche, frittata, stir fry with cauliflower rice, salsa chicken with cauliflower rice, taco salad, fajita lettuce wraps, roasted chicken with asparagus, salmon with spinach and Hollandaise sauce, zucchini noodles with ground beef and marinara sauce, steak and mashed cauliflower, casseroles (Cavemanketo.com), mashed avocado and tuna, green salad with steak or chicken and dressing, pulled pork, braised chicken thighs, soups, stews, chili, pot roast, chicken cordon bleu, pizza chicken with pepperoni and sausage, sausage and peppers, cabbage and sausage, parmesan crusted chicken and broccoli, stuffed pork tenderloin, stuffed mushrooms or peppers, baked cod with tomatoes and feta, collard greens with smoked turkey or ham
