Oh how I have missed this feeling!!! I stayed keto for the past week and the difference in my body is significant. My head is less foggy, I’m sleeping better, my joints don’t hurt as bad. I pretty much feel like a different person.
I will admit that the first 3 days were difficult. It was my 30th birthday and I had several family members offer to take me out to dinner for 3 days in a row. While I didn’t worry about my carb count for those meals, I did decide to stick with keto friendly foods such as steak, chicken and veggies and asked for extra butter to put on them. It was so sweet of them and honestly very delicious.
So how did my week’s results turn out with having eaten out 3 times as keto as possible? You tell me!
- Starting weight: 250 lbs
- Weight on 7/2: 242 lbs
- Inches lost on waist: 1/2
- Inches lost on hips: 1/2
That’s huge! I know that everything will start slowing down since most of that was inflammation and water weight, but I will take what I can get. Onto planning out my next week of keto. Remember that I like to plan out possible meals from what I have and prep some of them but I don’t assign them to a day. I’m pretty much programmed to not want what I am scheduled to have.

To this week’s menu I’m adding one of my favorite recipes. Lions Head Meatballs. Oriental food is really difficult on keto but if you know the right mix of ingredients it can still be just as wonderful as it was pre-keto. The best thing to do is to find your favorites and make them again. Make extra and freeze them for the future. So some of this list will be a repeat but with a few things changed. Breakfast will still be mostly eggs if I really want it but I’m not really a breakfast person. My body mostly prefers to fast.
