Afterall, what harm could it do to take a small break from keto and live a little? I was successfully maintaining my goal-weight, consistently exercising, and feeling healthy and in-control. For those of you new here, let me fill you in on some backstory. You can read all about my health journey here. Besides helping me lose the extra weight I was carrying around, eating a ketogenic diet just made me feel better. My allergies were reduced, my skin was clearer, my sugar cravings were gone, my moods seemed more stable, and for the first time in my life I felt normal in my relationship to food. Fast forward to today—where I keep vowing to get back on track with keto—and I keep cheating enough to knock me out of ketosis. I also do NOT think that a ketogenic diet is right and healthy for everyone. We all have different body chemistries, health histories, and genetic predispositions. However, the plain and simple truth for ME is that I feel so much better when I cut out sugar and reduce my net carbs.
I fell about 10 pounds in 6 months diet loss a lot of my muscle tone that i gained. This article helped me know what to do and the to expect. But one night of indulgence was enough for me. But off one week Keto put back on 10 lbs of the 13 that I’ve lost.
Plan plan plan equals success! I had a similar experience over Labor Day weekend. They pack on the fat with their fresh fruit carbs, and then fall into their winter slumber and hibernation, living off that fat until they emerge skinny in spring to forage once more. Keto treats can fill the void. If I tried really, really hard, I could have stayed Keto while I was there. I’ve been keto for over 5 years and lost lbs doing it. So I eat the toppings off it. It may even hurt a little at the beginning and you will wonder why the heck you are doing it. Hi Dear like ur blog n want to join u in helping me following the keto diet.
This annual August event brings together a whole slew of us: my year old parents, sisters, spouses, adult kids and, increasingly, their new partners, in an intense, chaotic, close family get-together in near wilderness. This year it was 24 of us at its height. Lots and lots of food. And then there are the homemade pies and jams made from that bounty of fresh fruit. We all arrive ladened with goodies to share. Ample appetizers appear every night pre-dinner. A friendly culinary competition takes place among each branch of the family as to who puts on the best spread when it is their turn to provide the main meal for the masses. Added to the abundance of food is the alcohol. Good wine and craft beer abound.
