It’s Keto Time Again !!

So throughout the year I go on a Ketosis diet  for a chunk of time at once .. or if I’m feeling bad and need to pull it together this gives you something to  focus on, or at least it does for me  and I feel great after as well !!
This time its because I’m going to Mexico in 5 months hopefully so … Swimsuit motivation

 What is that you ask ?

The ketogenic diet (often termed keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. The reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

  I find that this works well for me as long as you are diligent to this you are good to go

  You can enjoy some of your favorite  foods that you thought before were too indulgent  but it works !

I’ve had my moments but for the most part it’s been pretty great .. Easy to follow and time I’m craving anything .. I just look online and Find a recipe .. alter it to my liking and go from there !

So starting off can be a little rough but it’s rewarding and you will feel great .. So I came up with a mini get you going started plan .. regardless of how you break it down .. for the first 2 weeks try to keep it as close to 20 carbs are you can !..

To test if you’re in Ketosis I would Suggest buying Ketostix to test if you’re in ketosis after a week !! ( get them at Walmart or grocery store pharmacy) While you are getting into ketosis you may feel  flu ish .. it’s just the keto flu it will pass after you get used to the lack of carbs !! I promise 🙂
