I've been living the love of the Keto diet now for a couple of weeks and have a few updates for you.
1. Eat what you like. You will be more apt to succeed if you do and I found if I ate my favorite Keno friendly veggies at night with lots of butter and salt and pepper I had a good nights sleep. For those of you that haven't had a good nights sleep being on keto then that might be your answer too.
2.I have lost 5 pounds, yeah me but think I could do even better if I don't go hog wild on the protein. So I have reset my macros (see the My Fitness Pal App for your phone) to be 15% protein, 10% carbs and 75% fat which means all things naturally fat like butter, coconut oil, bacon grease and olive oil. No corn oil type stuff. Did you know that the turkey growers tried to fatten up there turkeys in the 1940's with margarine and killed them? The turkey's that is. So don't kill yourself with that stuff. Do what the pioneers did and eat the butter and the bacon and the bacon grease.
3. If I'm not hungry I don't eat. That simple. My daddy always said we eat to keep from getting hungry not just because we're hungry. But I'll take that up with him at a later date. So in the morning I am not hungry for hours so I drink my keto lemonade which is a little lemon juice, Himalayan salt and water. If I get a little hungry I make a bullet hot cocoa which is fun with whip cream, butter, cocoa powder, sweetner like splenda or stevia (not sugar) hot water and whipped to a froth.
I'm going to give you another fun fat bomb recipe. I also am going to make these for my hubby who is a diabetic for Fathers Day.
Have fun trying some of these recipes and let me know how you are doing on your own keto diet.
Love, Grammy T.
