I Give Up – Why I quit, after over a year on the Keto diet. #keto #diet #ketodiet
Because of my chronic difficulties with sleep, I always try to go to bed extra early (even if it means laying in bed awake for a while) since I don’t function well when sleep deprived (the sick feeling often returns when I am tired).
Since middles school coffee has been the answer to my difficult mornings – jolting my brain into the day with a punch. I’d load it up with cream and sugar and be on my way.
Coffee is a vicious cycle. You perk up, you crash add sugar to the mix, even more problems arise. Always putting your body through hell, spiking and crashing. Some days I would drink an entire pot of coffee. Quad, soy, caramel, macchiatos were one of my favorites – four shots of espresso.
Once my body went into Ketosis coffee began to have a very different effect on me.
Fat – organic grass fed butter, heavy whipping cream, MCT coconut oil, avocados, olive oil, fatty cheeses, if you like mayo this is the diet for you. Surprisingly a lot of people do the Ketogenic diet for weight loss. You can eat fat to burn fat and lose fat (once you get past all the bad things people have told you about fat your entire life).
I truly believe in the body’s ability to heal itself. Having these health issues means something in the engine is not calibrated correctly and it’s time for a tuneup.
Over and over again I kept getting pointed back to the Ketogenic Diet so I’m making the change. Today is day two. I’m feeling great despite the knowledge that a detox flu may be just around the corner.
