The keto lifestyle is amazing; it’s the best way that I’ve found so far to lose weight and not feel like you are torturing yourself, however, it’s not perfect.
There is something that I like to call the “keto hype”- people who are doing keto usually try to hype it way more than it should be- me included. I started it just so I could call myself a Keto Master because it sounds like some cool karate stuff and I lost weight as a side effect.
There are no cheat days on keto…you just don’t need it and it does more damage than good. One cheat day…ONE cheat meal, could throw you out of ketosis and ruin all your hard work and then you have to start over and it doesn’t “rev up your metabolism” and, on top of all of that, it kicks that cravings back into high gear and makes it harder to stay on track. The longer you can stay in ketosis and not put certain things into your body, the easier it gets. (some people do carb cycling and I don’t consider that keto…if they do, that is awesome for them…I’m just speaking from MY journey, not anyone else’s.)
I’m not saying that I’m doing this keto thing perfectly, but based on everything I’ve researched, I think I’m doing it pretty well. (my pee stick also confirms!)
Yesterday was a pretty good day, so I want to break it down just to show what I’m doing and if you see that I’m doing something wrong, let me know in the comments.
I’m a member of some keto Facebook groups and it seems the admins of some of them get a little crazy when you use the term “bulletproof coffee” when you are talking about coffee with non-salted butter, coconut oil or heavy whipping cream. They believe it causes much confusion and delay.
My Week on Keto
You’ve probably heard of keto by now and it sounds pretty impossible- it’s impossible because you get to eat a lot of bacon; but it also seems impossible because you can’t have sugar or bread!
Two types of impossible…and both are wrong.
