So, I took a bit of a side street with Keto at the beginning of September after attending a lovely wedding. I didn’t think getting back on track 100% would be so elusive! It’s funny, after 6 months of clean eating, extended fasting, intermittent fasting, and going carnivore - one little 4 day segue sure wreaked havoc!
In addition to all the foods we were treated to while on our 4 day trip, once we arrived home - sneaky carbs crept in through some deli chicken salad that I bought in haste- for lunch at work. A few times. Then nuts…waaaayyy too many nuts! Diet sodas. ( I don’t even like them, yet here we are. ) I seriously need to clean up my meals!!!
So, given that I felt my absolute best doing carnivore and coffee, that is what I am committing to. It has to stay 100% clean. And, there are boatloads of challenges that lie ahead. The most difficult is that of breaking my bodies’ intense craving now for bad stuff. I cannot even explain the ridiculous, intense, mind boggling kind of frenzy I’ve experienced - on and off since returning home from the wedding trip Sept. 8. The frequency has increased. The intensity has increased. (So has my weight!) The whole craving thing is just inexplicable.
To prepare for this week, I’ve pressure cooked some grass fed beef stew meat with salt and water. Dipped it in butter, and that has been the main meal for the day. Coffee with HWC. Water, water, water. And vitamin supplements. Should be simple stupid, but I gotta get through this stupid craving phase! Blah. I almost feel defeated. Almost. I know there is hope. Its just really awful - the level I feel I’ve sunk to.
Any helpful hints, encouragement, words of wisdom are all welcomed and accepted joyfully!!!
