I want to find happiness and balance in my life. I'm looking for people that are changing the way they eat to be healthier and choose whole foods. If you are on this path, please let me know, I would love to be in touch! -30 lbs and counting!
Now I'm giving Keto/LCHF a chance

Edited 01/26/2018: Now, I'm -41 lbs and counting. I'm still doing Keto/LCHF (happily) and now and then I do Intermittent fasting 16:8 and it's been surprisingly easy with Keto.

My Goals:
I'm trying to lose 76 lbs. I would like it to be as soon as possible, but I'm OK just by starting.
Edited 5 months later: I still have a weight loss goal, but now my main goal is to become healthier: I quit smoking, I quit sugar and I want to eat cleaner and more natural every day.

Lose 70 lbs AKA Goal Weight.

My Program:
I believe that every food group has it's benefits and shouldn't be excluded, with that in mind I (try to) eat vegetables as the base and add protein (lean and clean) carbs (complete grains, nothing processed), fats (mostly from vegetable sources) and fruit (twice a day) and NO ADDED SUGARS!
I also do some short workouts first thing in the morning and yoga or another workout after work.
Lots of water, no fizzy beverages, no artificial sweeteners, no sugar (not even honey, agave or anything) and no "fat free" products because of the horrible amount of added sugars.
I try to find balance and choose the best option for my health.

Added August 2017: I just started a Keto/LCHF program and let's see how that works for me.

Personal Information:
My name is Danny, I'm trying to lose weight, stop smoking and being healthier.

Edited to add: I quit smoking 2 years ago (cold turkey), I'm working out regularly, and trying to choose wholesome and unprocessed food.

Edited to add, 01/26/2018: Still no smoking, no sugar and working out. Now I'm doing Keto/LCHF and I've been feeling fantastic and losing weight easier than with a traditional high carb low fat diet.

Other Information:
Not my first try at loosing weight, but my first try at a healthy lifestyle and healing emotionally so I don't overeat for comfort. So far so good! (-30 lbs)
