Keto Lifestyle (How its going)

So on September 21st I started my journey on a Keto Lifestyle change (I hate calling it a diet) I am currently on my 3rd week or Keto which If you don't know what Keto is I will put a link to the definition here (Click Here). Basically Keto is a high fat low carb moderate protein way of eating. You are basically living on the carbs you get from veggies than carbs you get from other foods. You are teaching your body to burn fat for energy instead of burning carbs for energy.

The first week I wasn't totally Keto I was adjusting to the new way of eating and figuring out what I should and shouldn't be eating so I did eat some stuff that I really shouldn't have but its a real learning curve. Another important thing if you are looking to start a Keto lifestyle is to do your research and by that I mean there is a lot of research you should do. It's very important to know some of the things that can happen to your body when starting this way of eating such as KETO FLU! It is very important that you get your electrolytes in as your body wont be able to hold onto those as much on this WOE.

I have to say that I actually feel great I have so much more energy now than I did before. Before Keto I used to drink 3-6 cups of coffee a day now I drink a max of 2 coffees a day now and I don't have a crash at 1-2pm anymore I can go the whole day with full energy! My crash time now is at 9pm which I mean isn't bad now that I am waking up and ready to go at 6-7am. Another change I have noticed is that I am not hungry all the time! this is a big thing for me I have tried other WOE such as weight watchers and I found I was constantly hungry. I eat 3 meals a day Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and sometimes I have a small treat after dinner when I need a little extra fat such as a Fatbomb.

The first week you loose water weight which I lost 5.6lbs the first week. Everyone is different but some people like me stall after the first week as our bodies heal and adjust themselves. I have lost inchs even though the scale isn't moving and I just feel a lot better! 

Feeling the way I do in these first few weeks has made me want to keep going and I plan to make this a lifestyle change and my way of eating from now on. I'm all in!

  1. The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called mantain in ketosis
