I started 3 weeks ago and I'm really enjoy it. I have gotten used to cream in my coffee. At work I get an espresso shot and take it back to my desk and make it up with cream and hot water.
I try and stick to 20g of carbs
My weight loss journal has some more info on what I eat etc. Eta today was bacon, egg and avo e
with coffee for breakfast. Lunch is leftover chicken with some zucchini, capsicum and egglpant and spinach and ricotta dumplings and bocconcini, dinner is a salmon and broccolli salad. Lots of butter and oil and cheese added in.

Next question when making the coffee with cream do you put the cream in the cup first like with milk? Sorry just want to make sure I make it right

what i do is i mix my cream in a separate cup with some hot water, make my espresso in another mug and then pour it in.

Some days that's the other way around as I do like to eat an evening meal with my daughter and psychologically I struggle not having that main meal at night lol. But my body seems to naturally want to fall in to the former pattern.
I often have a plate of frozen berries with full fat jalna yoghurt as a sweet treat.
Snacks I don't generally need, but if I do I generally have celery sticks with mayonnaise, boiled eggs, Oopsie bread ( if you haven't heard of it, it's the best low carb recipe ever!) with avocado or another filling. Or Camembert chunks lol. I have found that I don't tend to get that tummy growling, gnawing hunger every few hours that I used to always get on my carb rich diet. Just a mild hunger, need to eat something feeling and a much longer time between needing meals.
The amount of food I eat varies day to day. Some days I may barely want to eat one meal, others I will want 2 plus snacks. I just go with it.

Also, I have a friend eating LCHF, but she eats a big brekky and lunch and dinner. It still works for her, so I guess everyone's body adapts differently!

Coconut milk or cream is also very nice in coffee, and sweet as well so you don't need to add additional sweetener

Coconut milk can have a lot more carbs than cows milk or cream so be wary

Enjoyed my first coffee with cream today and I loved it! I added cinnamon into the filter with the coffee so it brewed together and it tasted different but I liked it

Morning - coffee with cream (found I didn't need any other breakfast but being a sleever breakfast is hard to eat anyway)
Lunch - Grilled halloumi topped with left over taco mince and smashed avo
Dinner - tofu and veggie stir fry
In between meals I sipped on protein water that has 0g of sugar and carbs
