So I’ve been on keto for about 6 weeks now. Keto has been so easy for me, hardly no cravings, no over eating and just a few wiffs of hunger. One 72 hrs fast and one 48 hrs fast. I am very strict about carbs. 20 gr or less. Mostly less.
Two times since I started I have bought new jeans because my waist is shrinking. Today when I noticed my new jeans shorts was already too wide, I decided to man up and step onto the scale. I’ve been putting it off in fear of seeing nothing, but now that I have proof from my waist line I felt I could find the strength to do a weigh in.
Down 17 kilos, just north of 38 lbs. I couldn’t believe it. My first thought was that the batteries in the scale must be bad. I swapped those and same result the second time. Amazing.
I know a lot of that is water weight. And that is all fine by me. No matter what, that weight is now off my back, weight my body does not need to lug around anymore, and that should make it easier to move around with less pain. No matter if it fat or water.
I will stick to what i do at least til the first week of august. That means I will do prolonged fasts each weekend. And eat strictly keto during the week. I do lots of bacon, pork belly, entrecote, salmon, mackerel, avocado, cauliflower, some asparges(bacon wrapped!), broccoli, sour creme the fatty type, creme fraiche also fatty, heavy cream coconut oil, and mct oil 8/mct oil 10. I also have daily a spoon of cod liver oil when not in fast. And I do fatty coffe. Mct oil, coconut oil, and heavy cream for taste. Between 1 and 3 a day. I start the day with fatty coffee.
I do prescription vitimin D, virmain B and blood pressure pills. And take one multivitamin pill daily.
How can this result be? I mean I’ve been strict and I had great result with low carb years ago, but I never would have thought I could see such a big number weight loss so quickly.
I am a core realist. I don’t expect to ever see such high numbers ever again. And that is just fine. For me I’ve done what I’ve could to loose the most before the first week of august because I will have 6 weeks of hefty activity each and every day. So I figured each kilo off before hand would lessen the chance of getting injuries, more inflammation and joint paint.
But I never expected such hi numbers. And I still have 3 more weeks left.
Edited: Three more weeks to to camp, but I will still stay on Keto after those 3 weeks, keto is my new way of life! But what the scale shows in three weeks, is what I need to struggle with every day at camp.
I just lost weight equivalent a jerry can filled to the brim
