Keto Saved my life! Ketosis made it possible
The ketogenic diet is in it's Fad Phase right now in the mainstream. People are all on it! There are a ton of products available to make it quick and easy and you can even buy Ketones to be in ketosis, how easy is that? (Do NOT buy ketone products just use food)
I personally just eat simple REAL food, count my carbs, because you get into ketosis that way. So no products needed.
In Ketosis I don't struggle with HUNGER | CRAVINGS | FATIGUE
Dr. Atkins wrote in his books, "it's the ADVANTAGE". I mean what diet can you go on and eat butter, avocado, steaks, and fresh veggies and find yourself not hungry, distracted by life instead of food and have renewed energy? WHERE do you find that? Ketosis.
I've been on a ketogenic diet for 35 months. I'm here to stay, but recently my old food behaviors got the best of me (for the last 6 months), and I over-eat. (I'm not a cheater, I've not had any sugar, bread, pasta, rice or potatoes ever on Keto). I've struggled with over-eating all my life and it's a root problem that has come back to the center stage of my life. When I over-eat it's like a cheat. I come out of ketosis from all the hidden carbs and I am very very sensitive, and when I am out I'm usually battling Hunger | Cravings | Fatigue
Here is an example of how it goes... Let's say I overate last night, what usually follows: I wake up hungry and fight off hunger and cravings all day long. I notice I'm not as peppy and am a bit more tired and less motivated...that leads to that meal of my fantasies (keto) and I don't seem to stop and again, I over eat and now am too tired for anything but the couch...and then shame enters which is a big downer!...Weight creeps back and I'm losing ground ALL because I am out of Ketosis and do the VERY same thing the next day. Darkness quietly starts to close in.
Well I got a diet buddy, set a short term goal of walking together for a month. I track all foods, and I report it all in. No keto treats, no evening snacks, closing the kitchen and texting my day to my buddy...it's led me right back to Ketosis.
I'm back in Ketosis! No more HUNGER | CRAVINGS | FATIGUEI am at peace with food and food is very quiet. I don't eat as much nor as often.
Are you Keto? Are you in ketosis? If you are NOT why is that?
Where there is struggle, there is trouble.
