Fair enough. I’ve never been a huge soda person - never did like the fizziness - other than in alcohol as a mixer. And basically the solution for that was to switch to soda water for a mixer with vodka and lime, etc. or just drink better quality spirits on the rocks…
Giving up pasta, and bread is the trickiest for us. The girl likes to cook pasta with heavy cream, bacon, etc. so her cooking was like “keto plus carbs” before. Haha.
I’ve always been inclined more towards meat and vegetables.
Also, i think the food over here is less loaded with fructose and other shit than in the stats (Australia - it’s not as bad but still bad).
