I'm in Maintenance and OUT of ketosis presently. I checked my blood ketone levels. I must have crept over my own carb limit a few days ago. I knew it before I tested for it. THE STRUGGLE WAS BACK! And the struggle IS REAL!
You see when you are diligent with a ketogenic approach and you actually get into KETOSIS you will slip into this place where foods are really quiet. I MEAN IT'S QUIET. You are not distracted with cravings all the time!
I know because I'm out of ketosis and THE NOISE IS BACK!
When I'm in ketosis I'm rarely HUNGRY...I never eat or care about food til afternoon. But when I am out...I want breakfast!
I know because I am out of ketosis and I WANT BREAKFAST!
When I'm in ketosis little trouble spots don't hurt at all. Inflammation is reduced significantly.
I know because I'm out of ketosis and my right ankle is BOTHERING ME enough to limp a little.
Keto has made it to the headlines and is reaching celebrity status. There are those just jumping on board and there are those like me, who stay on a maintenance level of a ketogenic diet! It's how we live now. But slip out of ketosis and you are simply just lowcarbing it...and you could possibly be IN THE STRUGGLE!
Watch THIS for further understanding!
