Finding something that works is the hardest issue for my wife and I- Sharketo worked for a couple of months but then we bought a house and didn’t have time to put the work into fixing food at home and that has led to about 3 months off Sharketo and getting back on is really- REALLY hard! So, I guess staying on it is the hard part…I truly think we have found what actually works.
Most of my issue is in my mind and all about control, which I’ve written about before…and I’m trying to handle that by slowly making changes back into Sharketo instead of just doing it overnight. We’ve eaten at home the last few days and we are trying to get more Sharketo friendly foods…but we’ve had some stuff we shouldn’t here and there as well and, hopefully, those non-Sharketo foods will get less and less.
The biggest problem is listening to everyone else’s views and opinions about Keto…which is why I created Sharketo- we needed to find something that works for US. There is just too much crap out there from the Keto Elitist- you can’t have this, you can’t have that….that fits into your MACROS but it’s made with a bean from South Africa that once gave a person the flu so that means it could cause cancer…you know…shit like that.
Then you have your Alt Sugar Nazis- (get it?) I know…that isn’t a great word, but it does fit. We realize you need to greatly limit your sugar but then you start trying to use sugar free things and people lose the damn minds because it’s got this or that sugar substitute and that will give you cancer or strep throat or some ignorant shit.
When you get down to it- “true” Keto is basically some meat and some select veggies with high fat butter- throw in the fact that it must be grass fed animals and all this other crap and it just turns people away because it’s ridiculous.
This is why I created Sharketo….it’s not a diet fad but the way my wife and I want to try to eat regularly- a lifestyle- it’s the things that we try and have worked; not just some stuff people on a Facebook page said or argued about because that is really what most Keto Facebook pages are and that just kills it for me. It’s the one reason I haven’t been able to get back on track and I feel like shit.
SO……we are going slow but making process- more water, more vitamins, more Sharketo friendly foods and less of the bad stuff…but not just quitting the bad stuff instantly, because that just doesn’t work for us.
The plan is to soon be back to 100% Sharketo friendly foods with some exercise in the Sharketo Dojo and focusing on other activities like writing or playing Pokemon to replace the mindless eating.
It’s not easy…it’s fucking hard but we have to try and have to get to a point of moving forward instead of this constantly eating as much bad stuff as I can fit into the shopping cart.
We can do this, if each day gets a little better…a little less eating at fast food places and a slow change to sugar free stuff.
We did this before and were highly successful and felt really amazing…but food is an addiction…it just seems the more addictive stuff is loaded with carbs and sugar and I know it was purposely created that way- that doesn’t change the fact that it’s an uphill battle.
But I want to post about the “true” journey…to show the real struggle…I’ve been fighting this my entire lift with HUGE victories and even bigger fails. I don’t want to be a before/after picture on Instagram…I want to show people what it’s really like between those two pictures.
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
