So I’m doing Keto….again. The first time I tried Keto, I lost 12 pounds in 3 months. After 3 months I started feeling tired and exhausted, I saw the doctor and found out that I was severely dehydrated. Was it my fault that I did not drink enough water, maybe. This is why I am trying it again. Also, I still have this goal in my head to lose another 12 to 15 pounds, as this would be an ideal weight for me and this promote living my best life!
To be honest, I love how the Keto diet makes me mentally sharper. I have been on a low carb diet for half of my life because I am gluten intolerant. However, when I was in ketosis, I felt….GREAT. Maybe I restricted my calories too much, maybe I did not increase my fats to give me the optimum amount of energy. I’m not sure but one thing that I do know for sure is that I miss the mental sharpness of the diet. It also puts me in such a meditative state for much of the day. I miss that, I miss the calmness that it gave me.
So, I’m going to do it again. I encourage everyone to try it at least once. It’s great for inflammation, stomach issues and brain functioning. But, I will caution against dirty keto. If you follow Dr. Berg’s blogs which I did, he encourages 7 cups of vegetables every day with the diet.
Anyway, I wish ya’ll luck if you do try it. Wish me luck too 🙂
