This is an honest post. A review of the last 11 days of Keto. I was extremely surprised by my experience over the last week.
Firstly, I am new to the Keto diet but heard a fair amount about it from colleagues at work or friends. My expectations were very low. However, I am currently feeling great. I have a lot more energy than I did before I started. I feel lighter and clearer in my thoughts.
Some drawbacks I have to mention
- It is really difficult for me to reach my FAT intake. This probably has more to do with my mindset more than anything else. The message that has been perpetuated that FAT=WEIGHT GAIN is a difficult one to break.
- I experienced the worse headache on Day 3. I increased water consumption, read about “keto flu” and took in some electrolyte. Headache resolved overnight
- The first three days were the hardest, I felt sluggish and fatigue. Very achy.
- Currently (Day 7-11), Ive noticed difficulty with falling asleep. I remain very alert and also find it difficult to stay asleep throughout the night.
Plans for next 11 days
I will continue on this journey. Overall, I feel very well and the increase in energy is unbelievable. Additionally, I have lost a few pounds. So its a double win for me!
Will keep you posted
