Traveling is OK; I actually struggled when back home with friends wanting to go out for dinner and stuff. .. But it works! And you'll feel awesome and energized too!

I do a modified version on the road. Bulletproof has some travel powder packets if you want to do a high fat coffee in the am, I have been on clients with decent options for lunch. If we have a team dinner I usually let it slide since its once a week max.

Been doing Keto since April 2015. Very doable on the road, just don't let your coworkers make you feel shitty for not eating what they do.

@P1. Do you feel awful when you slip out?

Also @D1 I don't do it for weight loss goals, I do it for health maintenance/lifestyle choice. That probably makes it easy for me too because as long as I find something that falls within the diet I don't limit myself on how much I eat.

Two months then back to normal 😫

I don't slip out. It's really not that hard. Eggs and bacon for breakfast at the hotel, salad for lunch, protein for dinner. Every fast food/delivery option offers shit with no buns these days. The options are possible, you just got to be disciplined about it.

I buy coconut oil and put a massive heap in my coffee every morning. Ups your fat intake huge and curbs hunger pangs

I'm impressed. You must be a beast by now

Honestly, it's not bad. Hardest part I've noticed for most people is the lack of variety in diet. To me, knowing what I'm gonna have for the three meals of the day is comforting as it can provide some sort of schedule in a wildly chaotic business. I stopped counting macros once I got the hang of it. I realized the trick is just make sure you eat a fuck ton of fat (e.g., bacon, eggs, coconut oil, olive oil) and you'll maintain ketosis. And of course, no carbs.

Been doing it since February along with intermittent fasting. Easiest travel diet ever. Plus I allow for a few cheats every week, it's a lifestyle choice, not trying to hate life. Also Not trying to lose any weight, just maintain

Do you take supplements K+, etc.

Drafted 4th in 10 team .5 PPR. Bench is a little underwhelming, but solid starters. Went with upside bench players. Got offered Brady/Mixon for Allen/Robinson, but I think I like Robinson over Mixon even though Mixon is getting drafted higher, but let me know your thoughts.

I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
