Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
I know that I am tired of the weight loss roller coaster ride. I’m up one day and down the next. It is so hard to get motivated when I don’t see a permanent loss of weight.
I was wondering if anyone has done the 28-day Keto challenge?
According to Web MD, “Ketogenic” is a term for a low-carb diet (like the Atkins diet). The idea is for you to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates. You cut back most on the carbs that are easy to digest, like sugar, soda, pastries, and white bread.
I’ve tried to do Keto in the past, but I can’t eat dairy. I know that the Keto diet is very dairy heavy. It is also very heavy in veggies and not so much in fruit. I hate cooked veggies. Am I alone in this? Come, on, be honest. I can eat raw veggies but no cooked.
I also have a very limited diet.
Not only can I NOT eat dairy, but I am also gluten-free. Furthermore, I abstain from corn, soy, artificial colors, and sweeteners. This makes it nearly impossible to find a diet that works for me.
I try to lean towards Paleo, but I am very interested in the 28-day Keto challenge. I’m wondering if I had accountability if I’d do better. What do you think? I think it would be easier to stick to a plan and change my habits if I had someone to go through the challenge with.
Ben Franklin said, “Fail to plan, plan to fail.” With the 28-day Keto challenge, there is a plan laid out for me. This is exactly what I need. I love to plan. I’m a list maker and I need to know what to expect. Having a plan already laid out for me is something that will make my weight loss journey more successful.
Again, Web MD says, When you eat less than 50 grams of carbs a day, your body eventually runs out of fuel (blood sugar) it can use quickly. This typically takes 3 to 4 days. Then you’ll start to break down protein and fat for energy, which can make you lose weight.
It’s not just about weight loss
For me, trying the 28-day Keto challenge is more than just weight loss. I need to get this sugar addiction under control. I read that the brain sees sugar addiction must the same ways as cocaine addiction. That’s crazy!
I want to live a healthier lifestyle and I think that Keto is going to help me with that. If I could get the cravings and junk food out of my life I would feel better inside and out. Maybe I would lose those 10-15 pounds that I’ve been wanting to shred. Maybe I would sleep better and have more energy.
That being said, Keto is not a lifestyle diet that should be pursued long term. It is a short-term plan, like the 28-day Keto Challenge. It is meant to jumpstart a new life of health and wellness.
Has anyone had any good luck with the Keto Diet?
Would you be willing to try the 28-day Keto challenge and let me know how it went? I hear so much about Keto today. I have read a lot of articles and seen many recipes on Pinterest. I’m sure I can find dairy-free and gluten-free recipes to follow. The food looks delicious. Colorful veggies, meat, and those “fat bombs” YUM!
These cinnamon and peanut butter fat bombs were something I couldn’t stop eating!
This was a good recipe. I love trying new recipes, especially if they are healthy and delicious. Do you have any favorite Keto recipes?
Send me a message. Let me know how you are doing on the 28-Day Keto Challenge.
