I really love the keto lifestyle. I know there are lots of delicious things that one must part with in their original sense, however the secret is to keep your focus on all the rich things you get to eat! Also, if you’re hankering to have some sort of carby thing, chances are there is some sort of substitute recipe out there that will satisfy the craving (enter Fat Head Dough instead of wheat based pizza dough... what?!?! So good)
The second reason I really love this lifestyle is because it is one of the only ways I’ve seen dramatic and immediate improvement in my health and weight loss.
The very first time I dove into keto, I did very little research and jumped right into the deep end. Although I lost like 8 pounds in that first week, I also got the keto flu something awful and had absolutely no idea that that was even a thing. (I ended up taking a pregnancy test thinking that maybe that was the culprit to why I felt so terrible, alas no baby on board at that time). The flu-like symptoms lasted about 4 days and then the cloud lifted and I was a whole new person!
Brain-fog lifted, energy... woke, motivation--- on fire! I followed the orthodox, classic keto approach to the “T” and I dropped weight like crazy. Nearly 45 pounds in total.
