Ive been on a fairly strict keto diet since February now and its been going ok. Im on it to trim the last bits of fat - ive been a size small/32" waist for ages (after losing about 10 stone - I was massive!) but still a fair bit of fat on me somehow. Since feb ive lost about 2 inches off my waist and my moobs are finally shrinking. However I'm getting really bored of the food I'm eating now, not enough variety and I miss certain veg. So I've been thinking that either now, or when I get back from holiday I may switxh to the iDave diet. Just have a few questions for anyone who's on or been on it
- are most paleo foods/recipes allowed? Obviously those without paleo-friendly fruits.. any good resources for recipes and ideas? What do you do for easy lunches at work etc?
- is no dairy really necessary? I love cheese and cream and they're probably a big part of why I like the keto diet so much! I dont have milk anyway due to the sugars but these two feature heavily in my current diet! Afaics theyre low carb so shouldn't be too much of a problem on this diet?
- any suggestions for sweeteners that don't use maltodextrin? Not a fan of just using cinnamon to sweeten things.
The keto has been working well for me so I'm tempted to just stick with it, but food (mainly work lunches) is getting so dull! And steaks are too expensive to eat all the time.
