  • KETO Mac 'n Cheese Day 11

    I made Mac n cheese yesterday. It was good but did not resemble Mac’n cheese at all. It simply tastes like a cauliflower gratin. I’m hanging in there, waiting for the energy I’m used to have kick back in. I’m supposedly in Keto flu. Everything is fine but I decided to skip the gym til the weekend... View Post
  • KETO Journey Day 7

    A week has passed and Keto has treated me pretty well. I don't mind skipping the carbs. Like expected, I did drop the water weight. 8 lbs to be exact. Now let’s see if I can keep it there as I’m not wanting to drop weight but gain energy and lift heavier. My appetite is just about gone. I’m not h... View Post
  • NO VEGGIES?!?

    Almost caved! Not in my life did I ever think there is such a thing as overdoing it on salad. Go figure. Wow! This is day 6 of my Keto adventure. I’m fine. Cardio is still an issue, strangely weight lifting is not. My guess is that it’s the extra fat kicking in. I usually focus on protein for ene... View Post

  • Day 2 of My KETO Journey

    It looks like I’m making it thru day 2:)  Getting up at 4 was not a problem. As for my workout I had to dial it back big time . I guess that is to be expected after making such a huge nutritional change overnight. I did not feel hungry or sick at all. No headache, nothing besides being light head... View Post

  • First day on Keto

    I actually made it thru today without any problems at all. After focusing on the food just being fuel it tasted actually pretty good. My morning coffee with almond milk was perfectly fine. Then I had high fat veggie casserole, egg salad wraps and cauliflower turmeric soup for the day. I did go ov... View Post
