Day 17 Keto Diet

January 30, 2012

17 days minus 2 because my brother in law came to visit & I had to watch what I ate for the most part. With that said let me start by saying sorry for not updating the blog.i have lost in a total of 8 weeks 16 lbs.

My diet has been intense and I have been dropping a good 2-3 lbs each week since day 1 on Keto diet. Word of advice though,DO NOT EAR FLAX SEEDS WHOLE! They come out the same way and they put small cuts and tears on the colon,which I found out the hard way. So my diet consists of high good fats & protein along with no carbs at all,but technically I’m on a semi-Keto diet because I’m still a beginner at this whole diet thing. The only carbs I would have is from a 1/3 cup of gluten free oats. The rest of the day is tough,the first couple of days I was tired and grumpy but now I’ve realized that I’m much more fuller and energized. Downside is that in the gym my weight has gone down by 10-15 lbs,which only hurts the ego haha. I always try to help inspire through my actions & words so please don’t hesitate to ask,but remember I’m going on what i read,not experience so I cannot be held responsible for anything.

Day 1, Keto diet

January 14, 2012

So far I feel my brain blanking out,spacing out,feeling groggy. Keto diet is very radical for me thus me feeling this way. Basically it’s high in good fats/protein and no carbs. Lots of science behind this type of dieting which has been proven time & again. I’ve been seeing what I ate this whole day and still can’t believe my body is still going.

Asparagus grilled & broccoli with olive oil,almond butter & different types of high fat,omega 3 seeds will be my best friend for the next 5 weeks. I have to take a multi vitamin though to keep my micronutrients in line. I feel like I’m learning so much from my coach,friends & blogs. Also i got a new toy to just keep pushing me further:

No food like this for awhile. When I do a refeed meal instead of a cheat meal I have to make sure theirs tons of nutritious food,brown rice in it as well,its like carving up from what I’ve read. Wish me luck!
