I Am A Loser! Are You A Loser?
Are You A Loser?
Are you a loser? When you hear the word loser, it sounds negative, but in this instance, it is a good word. I am living ketogenically and I have lost 21.4 pounds. How did I do it? I would love for you to see how I did it. Check out this video and see my progress!
For those who prefer to read about my progress, here you go! I decided to reboot my lifestyle that involved Keto to lose weight and feel great. I know this lifestyle works because I originally lost 45 pounds on Keto, but went back to my old uncontrolled carb eating ways. I decided two months ago to follow my own five-finger guideline, which is to:
- Eat when you’re hungry
- Stop when you are satisfied
- Drink when you’re thirsty
- Eat 20 grams or less of total carbohydrates per day
- Divide up the 20 grams into 5 to 7 grams of carbohydrates per meal
Foods/Drinks I Ate on Keto
This week I included the following foods:
Liquids: Coffee, tea, chicken bouillon, plain water, and water with MIO.
Proteins: eggs, sausages, chicken, pepperoni, pork rinds, salmon, pollock, peanut butter, almond butter, Greek yogurt, and low carb yogurt.
Carbohydrates: butter lettuce (one teaspoon of black-eyed peas for good luck in the New Year), collard greens, green beans, and cabbage.
Fats: Avocado, butter, salad dressing, bacon, MCT oil powder, chocolate peanut butter fat bombs, and coconut oil.
I made sure I focused on my carbohydrate intake. I do not go by calories, protein intake or even fat intake. I focus on the carbs and make sure my proteins come from fatty sources of meat. I include fat bombs and will eat them if I still feel hungry after eating. One or two usually does the trick. This week, I lost another 1.4 pounds for a total of 21.4 pounds since November 2018. I am happy to say I am a loser! I will share with you next week my progress. Until then…
