So let’s just say I cheated today……..on keto. It was terrible. I have been doing so well living my keto way but there are times when sweets and carbs call your name! I think having a cheat meal here and there is fine. You do need to live a little and you won’t gain five pounds from having a cheat meal. Throughout my keto journey, I’ve had many cheat days and still lost about seven pounds. By the way, I barely exercised with the weight loss. It just goes to show you the impact that a low-carb and high fat diet can do for you. Since I have been doing keto, not only have I lost weight but:
- I feel energetic
- Clear- minded
- No “‘carb” crashes
- Stomach upset resolved
That’s just what I can think of at the moment. I will share more in upcoming blogs as well as my keto go to foods and recipes. I’ve discovered some great ones and low carb which is key. So to wrap this up, I had some unnecessary carbs today and boy did my gut feel it as well as my decrease in energy. It was so sudden too. Kind of freaked me out! I understood what was happening though, so it was another reminder why I do this whole keto thing. I see it as a way of life instead of a “diet”. I choose to cook with coconut oil and bake with almond flour, put butter in my coffee. Meh, sounds good! It really isn’t all that bad but takes some motivation to prep and experiment with food. Do you have that motivation? What motivates you? Is it weight-loss or just generally feeling healthy and good? Next blog, I will discuss the break down of what keto really is and why is there negative talk about it.
God Bless Friends!

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.
Let’s take care of the temple of God.
