I was just thinking about the holidays today. This is the first time I can remember where I did not overeat during the holidays. I was able to stop eating. Previously, I would devour plateful after plateful of food at holiday parties/buffets to the point of being physically uncomfortable. I would still want more! I have been keto since September, I am down 33lbs from my high in July. I stayed keto throughout the Holidays aside from allowing myself a treat Christmas Eve/Day and New Year’s Eve. Those treats were good but they were just food. They weren’t the item of desire or want that they formerly were.
I now have full control of my appetite and an ability to walk away from food. That alone is gold. Keto is a way of eating that is lifelong for me. I owe much of his to the support from the facebook group, the podcasts, and from here on out, these forums.
