Coffee/caffeine has become something I drink because I enjoy (especially in the morning instead of eating), but I don't rely on it anymore and I don't notice any physical changes if I don't have it.

Likewise. Coffee on Keto is like a whole different beast.

I came from SAD baseline of 300 to a new lowcarb baseline of 50, to get down to my goal of a size ten US women's pants. My carbs would dip into the 20s more and more as I got closer to goal, but now my average would be in the forties: I thought I had found my maintenance spot.

However, dropping 20 carbs from that new low, and making it my new high: the difference was just as dramatic. And I'm now a size 8.
