Keto Month 7

September, Month 7 on Keto (low carb, high fat) Down 53.3 lbs (2.4 lbs this month). Bit of a waffle this month. I haven’t fallen off the wagon so much as hopped down walking around kicking the tires. With last month’s hypoglycemia scare I’ve spent quite a while digging into the why of #keto. Why does it work, what exactly…

180 days Keto

This is all anecdotal, my opinion and based on what has worked for me. I’m a software engineer, not a nutritionist. You’re free to disagree with me and it’s highly possible that what works for me may not work for you. Keto is a low carb, high fat (LCHF) diet setup to encourage your body to enter a state of…

Keto Month 6

August, Month 6 on Keto (low carb, high fat) Down 50.9 lbs (6.4 lbs this month). This month I had a bit of a health scare. Early in the month 8/2, 8/4 and 8/8 I had incidents of hypoglycemia (very low blood sugar). The first incident was kind of out of the blue (and I didn’t know what was happening)…

July Month 5 on #keto (low carb, high fat) Down 44.5 lbs (10.6 lbs this month). I actually lost weight at West An Tir War over 4th of July weekend.

Keto Month 3

May Month 3 on #keto (low carb, high fat) Down 27.5 lbs (9.9 lbs this month). This month I had only one incident of “cheating”. Cherries are in season and I am weak. I ate most of a bag of cherries all by myself over two days..and I got the WORST carb hangover from it. I think I’ve also figured…

Keto Month 2

April Month 2 on #keto (low carb, high fat). Down 17.6 lbs. It was down 20 lbs but I’ve had 3 incidents of “cheating” that bounced that back up. * Early in the month when I commuted into SF I got my regular affagato (espresso and gelato). I’ve fixed that issue and confirmed that a latte breve is just as…

Keto Month 1

Feb 20-March Month 1 on #keto (low carb, high fat). Down 14.1 lbs. This month I had two incidents of “cheating”. At Golden River’s Championship I had a piece of baklava (worth it) and at Liam’s birthday party I had a piece of butter cream cake(not worth it, the sugar actually made me queasy). Other than that I’ve eliminated all…
