The struggle is REAL!
Or it was last week. Out of a ketogenic state I have hindered by food thoughts and cravings and the munchies. To silence them I ate legal low carb food. The carbs crept up one gram at a time...
Fasting...Day 1 & 2 the struggle was REAL!
I missed food at dinner time...I had too much time on my hands...But I persisted on and got back into a ketogenic state, where food gets quiet and I gain control. I come to REST in ketosis. It costs me a lot to get there, but my body finds this an optimal place of energy and rest.
Last night I was invited by a friend to share my story at their church. I know without a doubt I did a much better job of it because I was in control and at peace with food.
Day 4 of my 3Day fast...
The truth is...and this is important to all of you out there who really follow along with my journey and it's inspired yours. The truth is, I can't go above 25g of carbs and maintain control and ketosis. If I enjoy a bit more carbs in my diet or even a low carb treat the carb creep messes things up. My body is that sensitive. This is an AH HA moment for me. Ketosis is HOME for me. It's where the freedom from food's control comes to a halt. It's where I'm empowered the most. It's another place of definition that I was avoiding for a while now.
