|Keto strawberry cheesecake|
I've had more energy today than any other day and interestingly enough I woke up this morning and I was not hungry. After himming and hawing about what to eat for a while, I decided to make Keto oatmeal. It has Hemp seeds and coconut oil and almond milk, and at the end you mix in some almond flour. I topped mine with some pecans and two strawberries.
My weight hasn't been doing much, which I am only a little disappointed about since most people loose a lot the first week just from their body dumping their glycogen stores. However, I haven't really been restricting my calories. I counted for a few days, but I hate tracking my food, although I really probably should just to make sure my ratios are coming out ok and I'm not getting too many carbs. The three days I did track everything, it looked pretty good. My total carbs were about 7% and it's supposed to be 5% so I figure if I just count net carbs instead of total carbs I've pretty much hit that goal (although I admit there is always room for improvement, that's pretty good for a first week) My fat was 75-77% so all seemed pretty good there too. Day one my weight was 187.6 from eating poorly for a week and a half before I started, and a few days later it was 185 and it stayed there for a few days and now it's 185.4. So I will see what it is tomorrow at the one week mark. I'm not too worried about it at this point. I've shed all the excess bloat from overeating carbs and my pants feel better for it. It's kind of amazing what just a few pounds can do.
