So I decided to try the Keto diet. Over the last 5 months, I have been extremely diligent on a balanced diet 40% carbs, 20% fat and 40% protein. The plan worked pretty well. I lost about 16 total pounds. My problem was friends who were on the same program were losing weight MUCH faster. I know weight loss isn’t the main objective, it should be body fat percentage, which I lost about 6% body fat over the same period of time, but weight loss is easy to know if something is “working.”
So because I didn’t lose 3% a month in body fat, which was the goal and 4 lbs a week, again the goal, I made the assumption that maybe my body deals with carbs in a way that hold on to them. I have seen the Keto diet for a while now and felt it would be worth trying.
So I am going to give updates on my blog about my Keto Journey and the tools that I use. I hate tracking food, but I like meal planning. Everything I do is simple!! Like super simple, so I am hoping if someone finds this, that the tools I use help them.
Instead of new meals every day I eat the same thing for 7 days and adjust. I was in the Marine Corps, so I can eat anything for a few days.
Anyway day 1 Stats:
Weight: 191 lbs
