At 60, I’m now going to try to limit my carbs and reach ketosis and still lose weight. Let’s track our weekly progress. Join me in Facebook. (3) Connie Dello Buono | Facebook

We must shop for healthy foods weekly. No left overs. Just limit our consumption and listen when our belly is full. Do get sunshine and sleep. I cant find a ripe avocado, so I bought avocado salsa.

What to eat? Know that if you must add 1 tsp of plant based protein powder in your green smoothie, that you drink for satiety. Always save half or more for next meal, in 3 to 4hrs. We are women and must not do one meal a day plan but eat between 10am to 6pm in small meals.

There are 45 calories in 2 tbsp (29 g) of Tostitos Avocado Salsa. Calorie breakdown: 82% fat, 9% carbs, 9% protein.

Please share your experience in your journey to a healthy 60 yr old.

To reach ketosis in 7 or so days, we consume 30grams or less of carbs per day.
