I’ve been at this keto lifestyle for 19 days and drumroll…. I’ve lost five pounds of body fat! Five pounds in under 20 days! If you need a visual to process that, here ya go.
I’m sorry if you are currently eating. Shocking, isn’t it?
All I did was track my food with the fitness pal app. I didn’t even cut back on calories much. I just kept my carbs low (under 50 grams) and my fat high (over 110 grams).
If anything, I’ve cut back on exercise. I do about 30 minutes a day. I stick mostly with strength training. I’ve been going over my supposed calorie needs every day, sometimes by up to 400 calories. And still, results!
I’m feeling good. I feel strong.
Obviously, I really highly recommend the ketogenic diet. For most people, you are going to get results, and quickly! The honest downside is that you are very limited in what you can eat. If you stroll down the aisles at your grocery store you’ll realize you can’t eat 90% of what is in the store. I have celiacs disease, so I’m used to a limited diet. It hasn’t been a huge deal to me, but I can see how it would be to someone who is used to eating whatever they want.
But the real benefits are that you lose stored body fat without having to deprive yourself. You won’t lose muscle like you would on a low calorie diet. You’re eating foods that are great for you. Your thinking will get clearer and your cravings will greatly dissipate. All that fat is great for skin and brain health. Fat and Cholesterol Critical for Brain Health Dietary fat for Healthy Skin
