2 Weeks in: What I have learned… And you?

I’m 2 weeks into a low carb/keto diet and I’ve learned a lot. 1. My diet in general was horrible for most of my adult life. 2. Now I enjoy my meals. 3. Now I enjoy thinking about planning my meals. 4. I buy food on the perimeter of the grocery store. 5. 80% of food sold is crap/unhealthy food, especially snack foods. 6. Costco is a great resource for Keto shopping. 7. I have discovered wonderful new things like monk fruit, allulose, and erythritol. 8. Gatorade Zero is delicious. 9. I lost 7.5 lbs in 2 weeks! 10. I sleep better. 11. I don’t want the wrong things so much. 12. The ‘Carb Manager’ app is an essential tool. 13. Edit: A food scale, also a must for success. 14. Another edit: I keep my eating habits to myself, no one has asked or bothered to ask. I just decline the cookie offers and everything that is offered in the break room. The rare times we go out to eat we find something on the menu that works for me and we don’t make a fuss. I think talking about diets is a lot like trying to talk about politics or religion… just don’t do it. Also, my wife cooks for one less mouth and the kids eat more mommy’s cupcakes 😉 What little pearls of wisdom or observation do you have to share?
