“Know thyself” they say. And obviously I do not. I underestimated the Sugar Monster. And I was very wrong on my logic that I could handle a glorious cheat day on Thanksgiving (stuffing and pumpkin cheesecake were my drug of choice this day) and then a few days later my birthday came with more temptations I failed to resist and well, here we are and I have yet to crawl off the sugar/carb ledge. Like an addict, I am now obsessing about the leftover Halloween candy and the everything bagels I’ve been able to ignore easily until now.
I am definitely feeling the roller coaster of energy crashes again, mindless snacking on carby crap I don’t even like that much and I’m also being snippy to people now, I think because I’m always hungry again! All the time!! I’m afraid if they try to stand between me and some carbs I might have to tackle them to the ground. But I won’t have the energy lol. I miss the freedom of not thinking about food.
So. What is the best strategy to get back on track? Holidays and a family vacation are just around the corner and I need a strategy to get back in the Keto game. A diet of hard core bacon and sugar free Gatorade diet for a couple days? Fasting? I’ve “only” gained 2 lbs despite my Fall from Grease but those were a damn hard earned loss for me and I know that slippery slope of “only” all too well.
Any advice on getting back on my Keto horse would be appreciated. I’m sure a lot of us new to this lifestyle fear the upcoming holidays and could use a pep talk.
