I was rather apprehensive about going Keto because it seemed really complicated for my wee brain to figure out what I could and couldn't eat.
With all the weighing and calculating of calories, carbs, fat and protein it seemed like a full time job and then how the heck do you really figure out how much of each you can have a day????
My brain was curling up in to a ball with the thought of it all.....
But with the help of @kiwideb I dived off the high board and took the plunge in to the Keto world and this is what I've found after six weeks.
Almost immediately I started sleeping through the night which is huge for me as I'm a ridiculous sleeper and am awake at all hours of the night. I guess that all the sugar was keeping me awake!
I have way less stomach issues and indigestion. In saying that I still have issues with cream in my coffee.
Maybe my body likes meat and cheese better than cakes and crackers.
I have a bit less energy because of eating practically no Carbs but I do think that's starting to improve.
I love the food!!!! I get to eat steak and mushrooms, chicken and avocado, butter and cheese, sugar free chocolate, cream cheese, nuts and seeds. So apart from sugary foods I'm in heaven!!!!
Well...I've lost 7 kilos in 6 weeks - I have to say that I'm a little disappointed with the speed of which I'm losing but it is coming off slowly and with the other added bonuses I'll take that.
It is a pain sometimes.... BUT I find it keeps me on track and I never over eat because of it.
So all in all I'm happy to keep eating this way and I hope that my health improves more long term and I continue to lose more weight.
