I’ve spoken to numerous people now (3) about keto diets and their results have been nothing short of amazing. LN lost 65 pounds, Greg over 70- both in 6 months.
I waffled and hummed and hawed about it for Bout two months now and finally decided to just do it.
N has decided to mostly join me on the trail of less fatty-fat-fat where she is still going to cheat with cereal and sweets occasionally. I am going completely sugar free as much as possible.
The first shopping trip of $400 was kind of shitty, I must say. Made worse by the three full garbage bags of food to the dump (we gave what wasn’t expired or open to the food bank).
I thought I might have a harder time of this to be honest, but I’m on day three and not struggling too badly. Where I would snack on chips or something sweet at night, instead I have herb and garlic cream cheese on celery. Breakfast consists of pomelo (which I love) or Greek yogurt with seeds.
Coffee is tricky, but I’m quickly getting used to only cream or sweetened with stevia. I tried bulletproof coffee… Meh. Nothing amazing.
I’m waiting for my body to kick into ketogenesis. N struggled twice over the last two days with sudden headache and fussiness. I was kind of a bitch last night.
Tomorrow will be the first real hurdle as I go back to work. It’s going to be interesting to choose a salad.
I’ll post a new section soon with some of my recipes.
