4/29/2018 KETO

Sunday, April 29, 2018

I am eating my words, I said I would never do a diet that cut out a food group but I am going KETO.. IF did not work for me I got shaky and in my feast window I ate too much and got sick or not enough and was hungry all the time, my workouts were hurt b/c of it . I started doing the calorie counting again and then a couple days ago I talked to my SIL and she changed my mind about KETO. She told me she lost 150 pounds, she has done KETO for the past 3 years with her biggest weight loss her first year. She is now maintaining, she walks 7 miles a day, weight trains 3x's a week, she went from a 26 pant to a 1/2! She has a cheat day a week though it is not an extravagant cheat, it is a meal and maybe a couple drinks like margaritas. It has helped with her depression (she lost her husband 5 years ago ), she told me she has not weighed 110 since she was 12. I listened to her and did more research, my son has done it and lost 50 pounds in 2 months, her blood work is great and so is his , based on that I am going to give it shot. The mediterranean diet can be tweaked for KETO which is not only a WOE I am interested in but also a WOL. I am now on board, today is my first day and I have eaten too much protein and fat, but have held my calories in check and my carbs, learning curve. I need to hit my goal, it has been 11 years since I joined Spark with many ups and downs, medical set backs, and I am going to hit goal or darn close this year!

    You need to do what works for you! You can always stop the keto diet if you feel it isn't working for you. It sounds like the diet has worked well for your son and SIL. Good Luck!

    Wishing you the best. Have you taken a look at the Paleo Lifestyles Spark Team?

    There is a WEALTH of information available in the threads of that team. There is a definite learning curve. At this point, I have not felt a need or desire to follow a keto diet. However, I have learned that the way I eat is apparently considered Paleo like.

    What's important is discovering what supports YOUR BODY best.
