Lurching into Keto

I know I blogged that we were going to go keto as a family probably well over a month ago…but life.

I’ve really been wanting to start but hemmin’ and hawing over the whole thing.Ā  I decided to just bite the bullet and start.Ā  The start of any new diet needs some sort of a grocery haul.Ā  Of course, I went to costco.Ā 20180711_1559527856548830844102775.jpg

Today was day one.Ā  After my oldest had cereal for breakfast (dope!) I decided all contraband needed to be boxed up and hidden away in the basement.Ā  The thing about keto is that it really eliminates 95% of processed, junky foods.Ā  We boxed up a lot.

There was a LOT of kid whininess going on.Ā  A lot of resistance.Ā  “What do you mean I can’t have fruit or candy?!?!”

I just feel like we owe it to them to at least try.

I really hope that theĀ therapeutic effects of ketones can reverse the autism/ADHD symptoms present in my oldest and youngest child.

I think my middle child could greatly benefit in his anxiety and hopefully with his skin condition.

Thankfully I feel like I am pretty comfortable with the diet, since I’ve been doing this for 7 months.

This is officially the start of our trial to see how the ketogenic diet might help us as a family.

I am a bit overwhelmed but much more excited.Ā  I would really love to get my 6 year old daughter’s autism diagnosis removed.Ā  I would love just more calm in our home.

I know it won’t be perfect but that’s ok.Ā  My daughter managed to get ahold of a triscuit and cram it into her mouth before I could stop her.Ā  All three of them were showing signs of sugar withdrawal and the start of the fat-adapting process (crankiness, excessive thirst).Ā  We’ll just take it one day at a time and see if the benefits prove to be worth it.
