After losing 50 pounds on the Keto Diet in 2018 following a divorce from a 25-year marriage, I'm RESTARTING! I gained much of the weight back after a hysterectomy later that same year followed by quarantine where I really fell off the Keto Wagon!

What I Ate:

On Keto, when I'm at the beginning or restarting, I eat very simple. For example, a burger with cheese (no bun), deviled eggs, and Pickles

Day 2

Day 2 I ate my first meal at noon which was 4 deviled egg halves and 3 pieces of bacon cooked on my favorite Cuisinart countertop grill.

My second meal was at 5 and it was filet mignon, mixed asparagus, onion, mushroom fry, and a small salad with cucumber and avocado.

My total “window” of eating calories was 5 hours. I drink black coffee in the morning as to not break my fast.

My Total Calories were 1189.

Macros Day 2

Macros are nutrients counted when measuring what we eat on the Keto Diet. Most of us like our fat nutrients to be the highest.

This pie shows that 61% of my daily calories on this day came from fat calories, 28% of my calories eaten were protein and 11% were carbohydrates. My goal is always 10% carbs or less, not that I am ever perfect.


Net Carbs

Using My Fitness Pal, I’m able to see the total grams of Carbohydrates I ate as well as the total fiber. When you subtract your fiber from your carbohydrates, you get your results which are called NET CARBS. My daily goal average is Net 20 Carbs.

Day 3

I blew it. Everything was on schedule til 1PM when my nieces came over. I had planned to eat my own lunch at 1 and still make them macaroni and cheese.

The mistake was, not eating first. Once I started on the Macaroni, I knew I had to taste it and before I knew it, I was buttering 2 pieces of wheat bread to go with my bowl of Macaroni and Cheese.

That led to chips while we watched a movie, a snack size snickers and a grilled cheese for dinner.

Keto Fail. Back at it tomorrow.

It doesn’t matter how many times we fail as long as we start again.


Day 4

Better!

First food at 2 PM and I repeated the filet and asparagus plus a dinner salad with Avocado. About 1200 calories and net carbs were closer to 30 with the extra avocado and 3 dark chocolate almonds. The eating window was only 1 hour this time. 2-3 PM. I also drank a Vital Proteins shot with the meal.

Day 5

I made a Chicken Fajita Bowl. I should have had more fats though as I wound up binging a bit on peanuts and dark chocolate almonds in the evening.


Day 6

The first meal was at 2 PM following a 30-minute spin. This meal is so easy. It’s such a filling keto meal as well.

Week 1 Results

Down 4.8 Pounds, 1 ” in waist, 1″ in hips. I know this is water weight AND is still very satisfying. In spite of the macaroni and cheese cheat meal, I reached ketosis by the very end of the week1
