  1. The first rule of Keto, is we do NOT talk about Keto to folks "outside"

  2. The second rule of Keto, is WE DO NOT TALK ABOUT KETO TO FOLKS "OUTSIDE"! You will get a LOT of fear-mongering if you do. At first, only allude to it.. like "cutting out sugar", "watching what I eat", etc... when you have indisputable proof that it IS working, then you can actually mention "No/Low-Carb".

  3. Get some flair going! (over by the subscribe button, the 'normal' format is Gender/Age/Height Starting Weight, Current Weight, Goal, but do what you like with it)

  4. If you're putting it in your steak hole, you'd better be weighing it (if it's not pre-packaged), and logging it. Quite a few of us are on MFP. This can help avoid "surprises" later, and help keep you accountable, even if only to yourself. Once you get the hang of it, you can let up, but if you stall out, that'll be the first thing people will ask: "Are you logging what you eat?"

  5. Treat foods with <1g carbs/serving as 1g, save yourself the headache.

  6. If you don't know if it has carbs in it, assume it has carbs in it, and probably quite a bit more than you expect.

  7. MEASURE EVERYTHING! Take before pictures, take during pictures, use a scale, but don't trust the bastard. Invest in a measuring tape If you don't have one already. There WILL be weeks where the scale doesn't budge, but you might simply be replacing fat with muscle.

  8. You're about to shed a bunch of weight, it'll be water. If this is surprising to you, read the FAQ!, the FAQ is good!

  9. Bonus points if you can arrange for "pre" bloodwork, so you can get some "post" bloodwork to help with point #2

    oh, and welcome! :D

They make a special tape measure that connects back to itself. I will try to find it and edit my comment

Edit: like this

u/World-Wide-Web · 10 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

you have to call for exchanges but then they give you free shipping. Not such a bad trade off.

As far as fit goes, I agree with /u/2takeke below, every piece of clothing has its own size chart listed. Figure out your measurements and you'll never have any more issues with "odd" or "inconsistent" sizes.

u/gaya2081 · 9 pointsr/keto

I have an awesome body tape measure and started measuring last week. Many of my measurements didn't change, but my hips seem to have lost an inch and my neck a quarter inch. I found my tape measure that I never remember to use This one from Amazon and put it where I wouldn't lose it in my bathroom. It's now part of my Friday measuring routine as I'm in a weight loss bet/challenge with some old high school people and Friday is weigh in day.

I thought at first I was at the wrong spot, but as much as a slide it up and down the measurement never got any larger than the new one unless it hit my butt.

I also stayed keto while sick this week and went out and bought some rebel ice cream - supposedly some of the local Krogers have started carrying it, but I also wanted some. Monkfruit sweetener so I went to the specialty store that has had it for a while. I never understood how people liked halo top, but I really love the mint chip rebel. The cookie dough is just gonna have to sit tight in my freezer. I'm still going to try to not have more than 1 serving a day, and not even every night, but I was shorter than I needed to be on calories the past two nights and had already hit my protein. Today however I am having rather calorie dense lunch and dinner, which I am totally looking forward to both dishes for both meals, but there isn't room today for the ice cream. I might bring the ice cream up to my sisters tomorrow for my nieces birthday party so I don't feel left out. I think she said her husband is doing low carb, so maybe he will want some.

u/tanglisha · 5 pointsr/xxfitness

This thing is fabulous. It lets you take the measurements yourself, keeping the tension consistent each time.

u/asiangoliath · 4 pointsr/lesbianfashionadvice

that's fantastic.

I have this one and it's pretty great: myotape

u/Kshennya · 4 pointsr/keto

Not DIY, but I use this [measurement tape] ( Several brands like it on there. It allows for a MUCH easier experience than a flexible measuring tape like for sewing because you put the "peg" into the holder to make a "loop" bigger than you need, then push the button and it tightens down to fit you... then you read it! I track measurements 1x a month in MFP. Not as cheap, but user friendly.

u/PapaTua · 3 pointsr/keto

Get something like this:

I got one and it revolutionized my body measuring.. As long as you measure in the same place each time, it's quite consistent.

u/BATassMOFO · 3 pointsr/xxketo

invest in a myotape under $10 on amazon

u/TheForrestFire · 3 pointsr/loseit

That's why I bought this baby off of Amazon a year or two ago. Even when the scale doesn't go down, my waist measurement very consistently went down. Now I try to only weigh myself once every two or three weeks, while I measure my waist every three days.

u/lefinale · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

I have experienced the same anxieties. If you are exercising regularly or incorporating weights into your program - try to only weigh yourself every week or two (on Sundays in the AM, for example.)

Also invest in some Measuring Tape to get a better idea of progress. The scale can be really toxic, but if you are paying closer attention to your measurements and how your body feels in general then hopefully the anxiety will lessen! Muscle weighs more than fat, so the scale can be pretty useless once exercise becomes more of your daily routine.

u/cpt_fuzzyboots · 3 pointsr/loseit

You can order a body comp measuring tape off amazon (don't use a seamstress tape). And there's a whole pile of formulas out there that you can put your measurements in, and it will give you an estimate of your body fat percentage. I did all of them, and picked the one that gave me the most median number (which for me was the US Department of Defense formula). I now just use that formula to track my progress.

I feel like this is the most cost-effective and reasonable method for the majority of people.

edit: I went back and it seems like the one I originally got isn't on Amazon anymore, but it looks exactly like this one: (I didn't get the calipers).
Found it:

This is the formula I use:

And this is the app I use on my phone to calculate and track everything:

Here's a chart explaining the different ranges:

u/majormick3y · 2 pointsr/keto

I use one of these and measure at the same time each day

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/loseit

what i do for motivation is make me a weight chart in excel. in one column i have the date i weight myself on and in the other column is what I should be weighing for the week. This way I can know exactly how much I'll weigh and by what date I will be getting there. I try to shoot for 2lbs a week weight loss as that's pretty good progress and keeps me more motivated. A weekly cheat is OK as long as you plan to make up for it by eating less later on. I visit my parents on the weekend so my weekends are basically cheat days, but I try not to go too overboard still. I also had a cheat week where I made no progress (vacation) but I still kept on trucking. You'll have your ups and downs, try to focus more on the positive effects of your efforts and don't dwell on it if you gain a pound one week.

Also I would recommend tape measure and calipers. This way you'll know when you lose fat vs just water weight fluctuations on the scale (the scale can fluctuate at least 5lbs).

Set your goals, try to achieve them every week, and keep track of your measurements! Stick to healthy foods, while you can lose weight eating fried foods you have to eat less of them for this to happen, than say, a salad. You can eat a lot of salad and not have it impact your calories for the day.

Protein is also important. Protein will keep you full longer! Meat, eggs.

Avoid excessive carbs but a piece of bread here and there doesn't hurt too much as long as it's under your goal. Don't expect to be able to fill up on bread though.

If you don't reach your goal for the week then you need to adjust the amount of calories you are eating! Eating less food vs eating more isn't going to kill you (as long as you only lose 2lbs per week and not any more!)

In the beginning you should see a lot of progress, then you'll level out and it will become harder to lose weight as you reach your goal. Adjust your calories then and don't get discouraged!

Good luck on your weight loss journey.

u/magele · 2 pointsr/loseit

I use this :

and I love it, I also paid quite a bit for a good digital scale, different ways to measure progress, but for 6 bucks you can't go wrong!

u/torinmr · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I have one of those, and the %BF it reports varies wildly day-to-day, by several percent. As such, I've found it pretty much useless.

I've found a simple waist measurement to be a much more consistent measure of BF progress, even though it doesn't directly correspond to a % number. If you want a fancy gadget, I bought this for a few bucks and it makes body measurement easier and more consistent.

u/tryingtohike · 2 pointsr/xxketo

I've only tracked inches since i started Keto. I used this tape measure that came w/ a scale before only to realize that it didn't give an accurate number since there was around 3 inches that went unmeasured. my best guess was that I was 50 inches before maybe 51 in waist and now I jump between 44 and 45 inches.

u/What_the_shit_Archer · 2 pointsr/xxketo
u/WillowWagner · 2 pointsr/keto

If you're trying to keep burning fat, you absolutely need to keep that deficit. If you're lifting, keep it up. If you're not, start, even with just resistance bands. Also keep moving. Walk a lot. And get something like this: or get a soft fabric tape measure and write down your measurements. A stall is a month or more with no change in ANY physical measurement. IIRC Jimmy Moore once went 10 weeks with no weight loss, but he lost 6 inches at his waist at the same time, back when he first did Atkins.

At this point it's really good to stay focused on the process and on how well you feel. The external rewards aren't going to come as fast, so enjoy your steak and butter, and celebrate every tiny gain.

u/todays_throwaday · 2 pointsr/RedPillWomen

I'm not sure if this is quite the right place to put this, but as someone who is very into fitness, health, etc, I want to put good information out there for people to see. Your statement about not losing weight possibly due to muscle gain reminded me of a pretty important idea:

Worry less about the scale and more about the mirror and your waist/hip measurements. The scale numbers matter, but not as much as you might think.

Here is an article on the average ideal waist:hip, waist:chest, and BMI for both men and women:
Ideal to real: What the perfect body really looks like

For the BMI, I'd recommend using this calculator, which BMI with an exponent of 2.5 instead of 2.0, making it better for people of significantly above or below average height:

New BMI Calculator

Here were the ideal numbers for women designed by men:

  • BMI of 18.8

  • Waist-to-hip ratio ratio of .73

  • Waist-to-chest ratio of .69

    Obviously, you have less control over bust size than you might like, but handling your waist:hip ratio and trying to eat towards the ideal BMI is going to massively increase your sex appeal, mating options, and body satisfaction. The good news is, these are averages, and as long as you are reasonably close, you are going to be somebody's ideal.

    EDIT: Just to give a concrete example of this, I like narrower/flatter hips, a smaller chest, and a bit more muscle than most men. This will lead to a small overall size and low curves, but a somewhat higher BMI due to the higher muscle density. However, most women would be very well served by tailoring their fitness regimen to approach the above numbers over time.

    You can track both your weight and your measurements pretty cheaply. Here are a couple of products on Amazon that make it very easy:

    Body measurement tape, $5

    Digital scale, $23

    I own both of these products and I am very satisfied with them. I'd say measure yourself in the morning after relieving yourself for the most accurate & consistent results.

    Fitness and health are both easier and harder than people make them out to be. Often we pursue ideals that are a bit wrongheaded, and it is difficult to form good habits. However, once you pick the right goals, and you establish the good habits, it gets fairly easy and very rewarding. Happy self-improvement, folks!
u/sp0radic · 2 pointsr/loseit

Where would a product like this be ranked?

u/Cabin_Sandwich · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

i like these, you can do your measuring with one hand.

u/TooHotInPhoenix · 2 pointsr/loseit
u/pierre_x10 · 2 pointsr/keto

Get a body tape measure, they are fairly cheap, like this one:


Look up how to measure your body parts (waist, hips, arms, etc), and track those like you would your weight.


I only recently re-started keto, but the last time I was eating keto, there were a couple months that my weight didn't go down, but I could tell from my belt that I was still slimming down. Keto is great for body recomp.

u/guice666 · 1 pointr/Fitness

MyoTape - very useful.

And I agree.

u/Panderian109 · 1 pointr/videopals

This is what I use. It tells me how much fat I have so I really know how much I'm loosing. Just be sure to do it in the morning before you eat anything and before you drink anything because the pulse will react differently if you have a different amount of water in your body. So if i do it one day right when I wake up then another day after dinner, the reading won't be accurate. I always do it in the morning. I also use one of these to measure my waist, arms, legs, neck, and chest to see where I'm loosing. I'm telling you, your mind plays all kind of weird tricks on you when you're trying to get fit because even though you're working out and eating awesome, you can still feel like nothing is working. For me, I've gotta prove it to myself. Having something to measure my health other than how I feel about myself when I look into the mirror helps.

u/joeythenaiveone · 1 pointr/loseit

If you have Amazon Prime, this is the measuring tape I have and I love it. It's cheap, ships free (with Prime) and it's easy to get consistent measurements with.

u/reverselookup · 1 pointr/4hourbodyslowcarb

You will get some amazing results. I got this body meauring tape for my measurements (waist, chest, arms, thighs, etc). These are the metrics you will pay attention to.

Good luck my friend. I want to hear your progress.

u/LocalAmazonBot · 1 pointr/amazone

Here are some links for the product in the above comment for different countries:



This bot is currently in testing so let me know what you think by voting (or commenting).

u/TMWNN · 1 pointr/amazone is half the price and is very similar. It's very convenient to use and only needs one hand to "activate" once the loop is closed.

u/rushboy99 · 1 pointr/progresspics

helps some on bad days

I have found having a sticky note countdown + full body mirror helps me want to keep going. latch on to your goal and use it like an anchor , and don't be afraid of a plateau. its basically your body redistributing fat.
most people still see inches come off the waistline and everywhere else, the scale lies during a plateau if it worries you that much, get a tape measure.

u/Kittenmittons91 · 1 pointr/loseit

Measurements are so motivating! And sometimes a better metric than the scale, just because your actual weight can be influenced by so many things. I do mine once a month and they're always super encouraging. I'm down almost 20 pounds and I don't really see a difference in the mirror, but my measuring tape promises I'm getting smaller.

I got this puppy from Amazon for less than $5 shipped and it's made measuring a lot easier and more accurate.

u/nigelregal · 1 pointr/Fitness

I have a scale similar to that. I weighed myself for weeks everyday at same time and then multiple times a day. The body fat reading would vary day to day between 12% and 19%. Other scales might be more consistent though.

I have used the more expensive inbody ones at my gym and the hospital I work at. Those seem to be more consistent but each one gives fairly different results. For example the one at my gym typically reads me out at 13% body fat. The one at the hospital reads me out at around 16%. The difference could be that I measure at the gym at 6pm and at work i'm doing it around lunch time.

My advice is to take measurements instead using something like:

  • This
  • Or this
  • Or this

    Track it all on a spreadsheet. I have one if you want one. If you have the cash though for the scale I would just get a wireless one that transmits the data to your phone so it tracks weight and such without having to write it down (if you are lazy about that). The body fat part could just be "something interesting" to see but not something you take stock in.
u/rasGazoo · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I use this for my measurements btw, with help... actually needed to measure tonight for a question here.

u/Senchal · 1 pointr/loseit

I have one where you can attach the end of it to the part that retracts, so you can measure around yourself without help. Here's one I found on Amazon.

u/Arrested · 1 pointr/90daysgoal

Yeah, they cost ~6 bucks on amazon. Here is what I purchased for tracking my measurements.

Body Measuring Tape on Amazon

Calipers on Amazon

u/sacrificialPrune · 1 pointr/Fitness

Does anyone have any recommendations for a tape for measuring neck/waist circumference? I'd prefer one of the lockable ones over a standard tape measure for ease of use.

I've got one of these but because its got a self winder as soon as I unhook it to check the measurement it winds back up a few cm which obviously skews the measurement.

u/PoorlyDesignedRobot · 1 pointr/loseit

Nope, I spent like $6 to get the equipment to do it.

I use a tape measure and the Navy body fat calcuator. Specifically, I use this and this.

u/almostelm · 1 pointr/loseit

MyoTape for sure! Sometimes your weight will plateau and that can be incredibly frustrating. However, if you have taken measurements, you can compare that and almost always you will find that you have lost inches instead. I highly recommend measuring all the basics (hips, waist, bust, thigh and bicep).

u/fifey157 · 1 pointr/PointsPlus

I use this body tape measure to do my measurements, but any simple measuring tape will work. I take measurements once a week from bust, under bust, upper arm, upper thigh, waist, hips. This article from Nerd Fitness describes taking measurements (scroll down to the Track Your Body section). Also, pictures are a great way to track progress!

u/Fenix159 · 1 pointr/Fitness

I see Purple_Crayon pointed you to /r/loseit, you'll find a lot of support there so that's definitely a good place to be.

Far as the pictures. Basically that. You won't see huge changes daily, but if you do weekly or every other week you'll actually be able to see differences over time and it won't be nearly as demoralizing looking at daily pictures seeing very little change.

Also I'll second Purple_Crayon's recommendation of taking measurements when you take your pictures. Pick up something like MyoTape for cheap. Really makes measurements easier.

u/spitfyre · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I also would get really overwhelmed whenever I shopped in person. Didn't really go away until I worked on my self-esteem issues some. Shopping online was much easier, especially once I took my measurements.

Buy a tape measure (Amazon link) and get your measurements, most clothing sites will tell you how to measure. And then just look at the website's sizing guide and pick the size that's closest to your measurements. You have a reasonably good chance of getting something that fits well by following the sizing guide and reading the reviews.

u/kothmia · 1 pointr/orangetheory

You might take a look at getting one of the tape measures with a peg (kinda like this ) I've found that (with the exception of shoulders) it helps a TON!

I'd take the last couple of days before the end of the WLC off from OTF, to give your muscles a chance to shed the water tht they're likely retaining!

u/Treat_Choself · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

The tape measure is soft, but it's one of these types:

u/7zf · 0 pointsr/soylent

How about, hold everything else constant like exercise routine and sleep patterns etc. Take fat caliper and tape measurements and post before/after measurements?

Challenge would be to lose x% bodyfat or y total inches.
