I’m not sure how much longer I can hold out.
I saw one of those cookie diet commercials on TV last night. I woke up today in a house permeated with the smell of butter, sugar, and chocolate: my daughter’s home-made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Talk about temptation!
Maybe I need to add a “cheat day.” Eat reasonable amounts of “regular food”—carbohydrates in this case—one day a month or every two weeks. The Advanced Mediterranean Diet has one every two weeks. If it’s in the rules, it’s not really cheating, right?
PS: No leg cramps for the last three days since starting a magnesium supplement.

In my experience you can never cheat on a ketogenic diet. Like ever. Not if you want it to work.
For me it is these cravings that make the diet not so feasible for the long term. One serving of intact whole grains (and peace of mind that I can eat whatever within reason) goes a long way to make this all better.
Good points, Darya. Long-term compliance with very low-carb diets is generally poor. I’ll have to do research on a once-a-month “cheat day.”
