Covid came knocking a couple of weeks back and I fell off the horse.
So good news, covid helped me lose four pounds, on top of the nine I’ve lost since July, mainly due to fasting. I was due a weight dump though so hard to say if keto was still kicking in at that point.
Bad news, my vegetarian keto diet involves a lot of dairy and once the cold hit my sinuses, cheese and cream became big no nos. Anything easy to make like soup, potato, pasties, even bread, became my goto, I even ate some biscuits then felt rubbish.
I’m finally climbing back on the keto horse today. But I’m wondering how far I’ve set myself back in terms of reaching a decent metabolic state. Ketones usually take about a week to appear, weight loss might still occur because I’m undereating calories, but I’m thinking have I reset my metabolism all the way back to July with a week of carbs?
