It's friday morning and I feel absolutely GREAT...food is so quiet, I am not distracted by cravings, hunger or fatigue....NOT DISTRACTED by poppers or treats! Not interested in going into the kitchen and look for something...I-AM-BACK-IN-KETOSIS!!!!!!!!!!
Are you confused? No problem let me explain. I'm in maintenance and stopped tracking and started "stopping when I was full"...it worked great at first, because I was in ketosis. Then I took some liberties within Keto and over indulged. That took me out of Ketosis and back into HUNGER | CRAVINGS | FATIGUE....I've struggled with my food for 6 mos and gained some weight. I even got "ok with it"...and kept eating.
Now that I am back into ketosis all the things I leaned so heavily on, like having no appetite or a very diminished one. Being totally content with simple meals. Going weeks without a treat. Bounding around with consistent energy...THOSE ARE WHAT KEPT ME KETO...and they are back!
It's really caused me to stop and spend time reflecting about all of this. It's out of the bag for now, WHAT i did, but WHY did I do it, and WHY did I allow it to continue? That's what I am uncovering for now...
As a leader, I owe it to all those who follow me, to figure it all out and be transparent with it...Because if I did this, SO MANY WILL BE HEADING THIS WAY TOO...I help people who USE food...and get stuck in it.
