What to Expect When You Take a Break from Keto

(Jane) #142

Good example of how you can eat keto and not eat “clean”. Glad you found your way back home and good luck with your journey going forward.

I’m on and off keto all the time, I come off for events (holidays,birthdays etc) but will go straight back on afterwards. The thing is the food does taste good, I tend to go for cake or chocolate as these are the things I miss/crave (I hate dark chocolate :woozy_face:), but no matter what I tell myself I still fall off the wagon, I know it’s all psychological and I need to change my mindset but don’t know how :slightly_frowning_face:


Kate, well done on pulling up and getting it together to get back on track!


I find that there are now so many fantastic Keto recipes that substitute those old treats so well, @Judy_Williamson. I too dislike dark chocolate, actually if I’m being really honest I loathe the stuff, but have found some fantastic sugar-free milk and white chocolate options that I always keep in the cupboard in the event I feel like I want to cheat. Because for me, cheating just a little always rapidly falls back into cheating a lot. Those carbs are sneaky little critters! Preparation and planning helps me a lot to stay on track.

I so agree about carbs being sneaky little critters! They do seem to creep back in! I didn’t think of having sugar free milk chocolate, will check that out. Thanks for your advice.


Well Naturally No Sugar chocolate is my favourite…especially the peppermint chip and coconut delight! :blush:

Thank you for taking the time to do this. I’ve fallen off the wagon after losing 10 kilos, and now I’ve developped a sort of binge eating disorder? So i got back 15 kilos. EH.
I’ve recently started swimming though and ohgod I need to do keto or I won’t survive! Can’t believe I did this to myself but like they say, breathe in and keto on!

Welcome back to keto. Not everyone does their best on their first attempt. Maybe you needed the lesson to put your heart into this attempt. We’re here if you have questions or need support. Best wishes!

Thank you <3 my first attempt was pretty good and I had a strong willpower. But got lost along the way with “Comfort foods” and feeling sorry for myself (+ anxiety/depression medication) -.- Good thing is, there are foods which I totally refuse to eat now which is good. But sometimes I overindulge in rice for example, or sometimes bread (damn you portuguese bread >: | ) .

Oddly enough I went in and out of low carb and keto for a year or more but never committing all the way, at least one day a week i ate carbs and not the good ones but like the ihop ones, lol. I have tons of allergies and do have aches and pains off and on. I am now convinced to move to Carnivore as I only get hungry once a day for the most part and a good chunk of meat satisfies me. I just wish the whole world wasn’t 98% carbs, everywhere you go all the goodies abound. I am going to try adding hypnotism to my regime to help my mind. I have not lost weight yet but like I said I was never fully committed till a week ago. I do feel better on carnivore for the most part. I was reading about Kelly Hogan and she said that it can take up to 6 months for the body to heal what is wrong with it first on carnivore then you go down on weight, she actually gained 20 in the beginning !! Another lady said she did too then later started going down. One thing i know, it really helps the blood sugar !
