A lot of things have been happening.
Public holiday long weekend…
And a family wedding….
Suffice to say I am well and truly off the Keto train at this point.
What I have come to realise is that Keto is an amazing diet that is actually more forgiving than most people realise if you have a laps, but at the same time can be brutal if you fall out of Ketosis hard.
I was in a position where Keto was never going to be an option and with everything going on, I wasn’t about to put up a fight.
The first day or two I didn’t feel so bad, my body was still reasonably in Ketosis even though my carb intake had increased.
The last two days however I have felt horrible. A mixture of tired, bloated, moody, angry and lethargic.
I realised that even though they were excessive, these feelings were no different than what I have always been struggling with normally. It seems the body really does struggle with excessive carbs.
Job wise I had a stark realisation… I need breakfast, fasting just wont work as the energy output I need is significant. At least not for the moment, once I can adapt and grow into the role and routine then I think I’ll be able to try intermittent fasting again.
To start with, I’m going to cut my overall fat down and spread it across two small meals (breakfast and lunch) and a medium size meal (dinner)
Going to focus on “Portion Control”….. never been a particularly strong point of mine
Thanks for reading, I’ll let you know how it goes.
