Last week included business travel for a team meeting and that means wonderful meals together.
I definitely went over my goal of 20 total carbs one night (wine!) but stayed keto the entire time. It was pouring when we got there but clear the next too days. It was very cold so I stayed indoors as much as possible!
My weight is up a pound plus thanks to sodium laden food while traveling but it was measurements week and I lost in my waist and neck since 3 weeks ago. Overall I’ve lost the following since June 25th:
- Neck: -3 inches
- Arm: – 1 inch
- Chest: – 3 inches
- Waist: – 3 1/4 inches
- Hips: – 3 3/4 inches
- Thigh: – 1 inch
This week I tried chicken crust pizzas by Real Good Food. The first one, Pepperoni, I really enjoyed (sorry no photo!). The second one, bacon and egg, was not good.
Food and Recipes
Since I was away half the week, I only made one new recipe. It was for chicken philly cheese steak casserole from the Diet Doctor website but authored by my favorite cookbook author, Kristie Sullivan. I will definitely make it again but use less cheese.
I neglected taking photos of most of my meals dining out; was enjoying the company too much! I did get a photo of my first meal in Tennessee which was pulled pork at the Nashville airport.
I selected keto-friendly options on the buffet for breakfast (sadly no hard boiled eggs, nuts or berries there).

I’m participating in a four day beef and butter fast starting today. It’s a window into the carnivore diet and a quick way to bust through plateaus (hopefully). We’ll find out next week. Until then, keto on!
