We all know that diets can be tough to stick to. But have you heard of the Keto Diet? It’s the latest craze in the weight loss world and promises to help you shed pounds fast. So, being the curious person that I am, I decided to give it a try for 30 days. And boy, was it a wild ride. Here’s what happened.
Day 1: I was excited to start my Keto journey, but also a little nervous. I mean, saying goodbye to carbs is not an easy feat. But I was determined to stick to it. For breakfast, I had eggs and bacon, which felt weirdly indulgent. But hey, Keto is all about healthy fats, right?
Day 7: I was starting to get into the swing of things. I had found some great Keto-friendly recipes on Pinterest and was feeling pretty good. However, I was definitely missing my beloved bread and pasta. I also noticed that I was feeling pretty tired, which I later found out was due to something called the “Keto flu.”
Day 14: The Keto flu was still lingering, but I was starting to see some results. I had lost a few pounds and was feeling more energized. However, I was also experiencing some digestive issues. Apparently, the sudden increase in fat can be a shock to your system.
Day 21: I was officially in the groove. I had found some great Keto snacks (hello, cheese crisps!) and was feeling pretty good about my progress. I had lost about 8 pounds and was noticing that my clothes were fitting better. However, I was starting to get a little bored with my meals.
Day 30: The end was in sight! I had lost a total of 12 pounds and was feeling pretty proud of myself. However, I was also excited to reintroduce some carbs back into my diet. I celebrated with a big bowl of pasta (and some garlic bread, because why not?).
Overall, my experience with the Keto Diet was definitely a rollercoaster. While I saw some great results, it was definitely a challenge to stick to. But if you’re willing to put in the work, it can be a great way to jumpstart your weight loss journey. Would I do it again? Probably not. But I’m glad I gave it a try.
