So i started off at 171 lbs and within 2 weeks hit my goal of 160lbs ( i actually reached 158 lbs). My personal Keto plan is as per below:
high fat and protein
no wine or beer or fruity drinks. Spirits w/ water mix only
8 - 8 oz glasses of water per day incl 2 prior to each meal
intermittent fasting 5 days a week (condense all meals to between 12pm and 8pm), fast 16 hrs
execption, 2x bulletproof tea in the AM
3 green teas throughout the day
Now that i’ve hit my weight loss goal, i still want to continue with the plan as i like how it makes me feel. Going into the maintenance phase i want to be able to have a weekly cheat meal. I’m not saying a full day where i’m eating sugar or carb rich foods. Just a simple pasta or pizza at the end of each week. Is this doable ?
Reason i ask is because this past weekend we were on vacation and having already hit my goals and feeling good i consciously planned that i would allow myself a couple cheat meals. I didn’t really gain any weight (whatever i did i shed within the next 48 hrs as i have naturally high metabolism) but i noticed it threw my body out of ketosis. It took me approx 3 days to get my ketones back in order.
Overall its still a lifestyle change and will continue on this path but my question is does Keto allow for cheat meals once a week.
