Week 2 Results

Hey everyone, thanks for checking in on my week 2 results. I continued with the keto diet and intermittent fasting.

For the most part I continued eating mostly a keto breakfast casserole, chicken salad, and tuna salad. I like making these meals because they are easy to whip up and will last me for a few days. If I must make a meal every time I want to eat, I’m not going to be able to stick with it. I will post some recipes that I enjoy soon.

     I have been trying to find some kind of sweet tooth satisfaction that is keto friendly. I do not want to be kicked out of ketosis every time I want something sweet. I’m not really sure what happens when you eat something sugary or that puts you over the daily carb allowance. I will do some research on that and post what I find. I have tried some keto mug recipes, a peanut butter cup recipe, and one for blueberry muffins. The muffins were pretty good, but it does not quite satisfy that craving for sweets. I think the peanut butter cup and mug recipes may hold some promise but need to tweak the recipes I used and try again.

    Again, trying to be fully transparent this week I bought what I thought were keto snacks to try out, but I later noticed they were just protein bars with like 30 grams of carbs each. I guess if that was the only carbs you ate for that day, you would still be ok. I doubt that was the case for me. I know I was looking in the keto snack area of the store but bought something else entirely. I will have to be more careful with what I buy from here on out.

     Like I’ve already stated, I’m not an expert, doctor, or dietician, but I believe that most of my weight loss results thus far are from the intermittent fasting, and the elimination of soda pop from my diet. I’m hoping I can soon achieve ketosis and plan on buying some kind of test to verify that I am indeed in ketosis.

     I would appreciate any comments from my fellow keto dieters, if they have a recipe for something sweet, they enjoy.

Lost 4 pounds this week, so I am down 9 pounds in two weeks. Still making progress and have room for improvement. Is anyone else having success they would like to share here? I’d be happy to hear about it.

Just beginning my keto journey. My goal is to lose 50 pounds and improve my overall health. I'm also hoping to build an audience I can interact with and learn from.
