My Journey with Keto

My weight has been an issue for the last eight years. It jumped and skyrocketed. I have been trying to get my wait under control since then. Intermittent fasting worked, then it didn’t. It got me from 295 lbs to 245 lbs. This took me half a year to do. I have enjoyed the results. There are clothes I gave up on and shoved in my closet as they stopped fitting. I am now wearing a shirt and a pair of jeans that haven’t fit me for the last five years.

Over the years, I have signed up with gyms. I have worked out for months at a time, and my results were lackluster. Whether it was choosing the wrong workouts or doing something wrong.

The issue with me is that I have bad knees. When I went to my doctor about it, he said I need to lose weight. He was blunt, but I needed it. I needed to hear it. This was nine months ago. At this moment, I need to lose weight not to gain muscle mass. That will come later.

I had tried to use cardio to help loose weight. Except I found that I would gorge myself. Once I tried the intermittent fasting, the weight came off and came off fast. I never expected it.

Keto is different. I am on my eleventh day in. My body is learning it can use fat as energy instead of carbs. This diet has forced me to count calories and carbs. My energy is up and I am less reliant on energy drinks to get my words done.

Finding decent meals to eat every day is hard as I can’t just make pasta. I love to eat pasta. I make a killer spaghetti. I make it thick and chunky with large chunks of vegetables and meat. I enjoy taking sausages and cutting it up as a meatball. This is all gone as I can’t eat it.

Any suggestions on some tasty meals will be helpful.

This journey is not something I can do alone. It takes support from many people for it to become a reality. The easiest way is to visit my Amazon Author Page and purchase one of my books. They are available in all countries and for free in Kindle Unlimited. I have a tip jar set up at Ko-Fe, where you can buy me a coffee. Or you can also visit me on Facebook. Your help and support are much appreciated.
