Many of you know on October 16th I started my second “round” of 100 keto days. Uh, what does that mean? It means I’m committing myself to eating a ketogenic diet for 100 days straight.
The first week, I discovered that my body is LOVING a diet with 25 total carbs, and 85+% fat. I lost 8.5 pounds in that first week. I decided to continue that trend this week, except I challenged myself to eat dairy free as well!
This week I enjoyed lots of nuts, discovered the joys of cacao butter, and had some delicious meat and salmon (all of which are featured over on my Instagram). Dairy free is a challenge but definitely not impossible. I substituted my creamer for almond milk, butter for ghee or coconut oil, and just removed cheese all together.
Removing dairy really helped me eat a “cleaner” version of keto. Literally just meat, veggies, oils, and nuts. I actually enjoyed dairy free so much this week that I’m going to see how it helps over the next week.
Anyway, onto the weigh in. This week I lost 4.3 pounds. I’m absolutely shocked and thrilled about this number. It’s been really smooth sailing eating this much fat because I’m rarely ever hungry.
Most days I stayed around 25 total carbs, and made sure 85% of my calories we’re from fat. Again, this seems to be my bodies sweet spot! You can view all my food logs for the week on My Fitness Pal.
This week, I will continue to be dairy free, stick to 25 total carbs, and 85% fat to see how my body continues to like it. Additionally, I’m really trying to be mindful of when I’m actually hungry or not. This week I will only be eating when I have actual hunger cues, and not just eating because it’s time to. I should also note during this past few weeks I haven’t been concerned with the amount of calories I’m consuming. I’ve been anywhere from 900 to 2400 calories in a day. I will continue to log all my food for the week but I do not have a specific calorie limit or goal.
Tell me below: what are your goals this week?
