Hi babes! When someone I follow is losing weight and getting healthy, I instantly want to know how! So I thought we could go through the journey together!
Diet – I am following a low carb/moderate protein/high fat diet, referred to as the ketogenic (KETO) diet. I try to stick to whole, high quality, nutrient dense foods. Let me know if you want more of a breakdown on the diet, or if you’d like the scientific research that proves this way of eating WORKS!
I started this diet, mid October and in 6 weeks, I lost 23 lbs. I felt amazing… my cravings were completely gone, I didn’t obsess over food or when/what my next meal was and more noticeably I had so much energy! After about a month, I started having a “cheat” meal once a week and I was still losing an average of 1 – 2 lbs per week. My clothes were literally falling off and I didn’t exercise once.
After the holidays I “fell off” and started eating as much chocolate, cookies, burgers, fries and everything else I could find. I was obsessing over food and binge eating constantly. One of the things I hate more than anything in this world is addiction and I can admit, I am addicted to food.
Currently, I am taking about 3 Orange Theory classes a week and go to the actual gym 1-2 times a week. I am focusing on building muscle (since eating Keto takes care of the fat burning for me)
I will keep you updated on my journey and progress and I embark on this journey (again)!
