Ketogenic Diet Weight loss one Month
The first month on ketogenic diet with the scale showing 30 lbs. Weight loss and my weight going down more and more each day, I thought to myself, “I’m losing weight faster than ever before. This is awesome.”
But once again, I was wrong. I ended up gaining about 6 lbs. in the second month, which I can only think is since I ate a little bit of bread and pizza during that month.
One month is far too short a time to see whether one or a combination of the ketogenic diet, intermittent fasting, and body composition changes is causing rapid Weight loss.
A month is much too short to observe the changes in diet patterns (gluten, dairy, wheat) that can lead to beneficial Weight loss effects. A month is not long enough to see the effects of exercise, because I don’t think I exercised for more than 4-5 hours in one month.
It’s a major factor that I think I can plan to reduce for the second half of the second month to get a more realistic test so that I don’t go on an actual ketogenic diet.
I am excited to start implementing the ketogenic diet with the plan to lose 30 lbs. in the second month. It would be awesome to have a 2-month test instead of a month if it works because I don’t think a two-month diet will be nearly as effective if it turns out not to work.
But I’ll let you know in the next post what happens.
As always, you can find more information at a personal blog about my journey to ketosis.
Grocery stores processed frozen vegetables. The amount of veggies and proteins in the freezer bag is way more than you’ll ever need.
Stove-top popcorn. Keto popcorn has great nutritional benefits (saturated fat, fiber, cholesterol, fiber, vitamins, minerals, etc.), but is not as caloric. I don’t plan to use it a lot because it can get really expensive at the grocery store.
Top o’ the morning frozen eggs. These are very low carb (less than 1 carb per egg) and contain healthy fats. I am using it right now because I want to see how easy it is to make egg breakfast with a minimal amount of effort and ingredients. It’s been a great combination.
Toast. I put toast in the microwave with coconut oil, which makes it taste amazing. This might sound weird, but I like toast without butter or anything else on it. I eat it right out of the microwave without any butter or anything on it (no chips) to give it an extra boost.
Sandwich thins. There’s a variety of sandwich thins. I like them because you can hold a sandwich on a whole piece and eat it right out of the package. This is something that makes keto diets more exciting to me than counting calories.
Potato chips. I didn’t get any chips, but I did have a few potato chips as part of a potato chip experiment. I am seeing a difference in weight, which I’m thinking is due to fat and fiber. I plan to have more potato chips for the rest of the month to get an accurate test.
