Today I am considering the first day of my Keto diet.
I made a mistake and went shopping for food that I wanted to say goodbye to this weekend, but I also did the shop whilst hungry! So I ended up with more food than I could eat in 2 days. When I came yesterday after an evening of watching people eat carbs, whatever food we had left that was not Keto in any way shape or form, was eaten. It was not a very impressive start to a new diet!
I left my Sorbet out to defrost so I couldn’t eat it tonight! That is how bad I felt after eating carbs. So today is my first day of Keto and I will learn from my hungry shopping. Don’t do it!
Today was pretty good. No sugar crashing yet, but I have started the Keto flu early. It is probably my allergies acting up but it is about to start. The last time I did the Keto I had the flu for 2 weeks, so I can just see it lasting longer this time around as I have just recovered from the worlds longest cold I have ever hard and my immune system took a kick because of it. I will push through even though it is the hardest thing I have to push through. I feel like I am ill quite a lot and I really do not feel or like being ill the amount I am. I am just taking tablets for it and hoping to stop it as much as possible. I am going to try serval things to see what works best to kick the Keto flu the best and report back.
I am starting my day off with having a Vega shake first thing in the morning and it is an amazing thing! Vega is a vegan nutrition product. The one that I have in the morning is Vega One All in One Nutrition Shake. It is a powder that includes your daily nutrients and multivitamins you need in a day. One scoop is 3 net carbs!
I can have this shake first thing in the morning and I’m good until lunch. I am really hoping this is going to help me in the mornings with my early starts and just helping me get all the daily nutrients without having to make sure it all fits into my diet with low carb food. It is probably possible to do it, but meh its 3 net carbs, I’ll cope!
So going forward and what to expecting in the next couple of weeks I am reading some books on Keto and will review them once I have sunk into them. I am also planning on posting some meals that I have tried and tested (Once I have tried and tested them!).
BUT I HAVE SOME NICE NEW GYM GEAR AND IM EXCITED TO GO!
Anyway, this is all for now. I just wanted to check in and let you know that I have started the Keto and that today is my first days of getting myself together!
I’m going to eat bacon because my diet allows me too!
