Keto Eating Plan - Day 4-7
Wednesday, November 29, 2017
Thanksgiving knocked me out of ketosis. No, I allowed Thanksgiving to knock me out of ketosis.
That said I've come to the conclusion that keto eating ain't for me. I'm sure I could correct the biggest downfalls of the plan I encountered; a) lack of variety in my meals and, b) high sodium, low potassium intake.
The high sodium intake (chicken broth mostly) and the low potassium combination caused a freakish spike in my blood pressure and likely suddenly drinking more coffee didn't help.
I've decided to stick to the mantra of if the plan ain't working get rid of the plan but never the goal. My goal remains intact but I'm back to eating the way I've had the most success with, the eating plan that I've most enjoyed and made me feel my best... I'm back to rigidly primal/paleo eating.
So far as keto eating not being for me I can say it would appear if one were to log everything and I mean everything you eat and stick to it one would surely lose body fat. I just don't see where it's a good idea for someone such as myself who is trying to shed off the last 8-10 pounds so much as someone who has a lot of weight to shed. It's a great idea, a great plan it's simply not for everyone under every circumstance.
In conclusion a keto meal plan is a great idea for those with a lot of weight to lose but not so much for someone trying to lose a little body fat. Personally, I can see myself eating primal/paleo as a lifestyle choice long before I could do the same with keto. The only thing negative I have to say about keto is it's simply not a plan that's workable for me yet at the same time I wouldn't discourage anyone from giving it a go.
