My Keto Journey

Day 14: Two Weeks In

Tonight marks the end of 2 weeks of Keto. Strict Keto. I am finding Keto to have its goods and its beds, its pros as well as its cons. There are foods I will miss for sure. Yet as much as I will miss these foods I have yet to catch myself wishing for the end of my Keto lifestyle.

I am calling it a lifestyle on purpose here, because my intention is to make this change for the long term. Not to worry! I will not be on a strict Keto diet for ever. I will be on strict Keto for a maximum of 90 days. I will determine this as I progress through the months, through my weightless, as well as by how I am feeling physically and mentally. After this “adaptation” period, (FYI: Keto adaptation does not take a full 90 days) I will begin the process of Keto Cycling. This will allow me to incorporate up to 2 days per week where I increase my intake of healthy carbs to 80-100g per day. These days should be far enough apart that my body returns to ketosis in between. I am not quite sure how this will fit into my lifestyle yet and which days I will choose for Keto Cycling. The truth is, I don’t need to decide now. I’m not there yet…

Tomorrow: measurements, to compare with when I started.
