Being in control of what you eat, when you eat, it might be challenging at first. But each of us is unique and reacts differently, have different needs, but at the end of the day, we all have choices in life, some are harder than others but when it comes to food, we actually have some easy choices to make. I’ll share my experiences, my recipes, my failures and my learning. Hope you’ll find this blog useful. For all my recipes, I’ve listed all my favourite ingredients here. Please check and be prepared to join me in this journey.
If you are seriously thinking to start on a Keto diet, I highly recommend reading these two books:
10 Days Experiment
I’ve started a 10 day experiment with my mum and created a custom plan for her. This meal plan is not strict keto and I made it to be within her macro limits and stay in ketosis but also enjoy the food she eats and not make her starve. Also included in the meal plan is a half of glass of wine here and there to celebrate the day. Most of the meal options can be substituted with more simple meals if in hurry like boiled eggs, celery sticks, cucumber sticks or even your/my favourite protein bar. Let me know if you want to give it a try and let me know how it works for you.
After the initial 10 days, my mum lost 2.4 kg (5.29 lb) and after 18 days, she was feeling great and full of energy and she has lost so far 4 kg (almost 9 lb). For us, this is a great result, as it has not been difficult to follow it and she felt she ate a lot. Before starting this, she reckons she was eating much less, but a lot more carbs and she was never actually loosing weight.It’s proven, it’s a success. Give it a try, it’s your choice!
