This is a short post. After spending a fair amount of money to follow a keto diet and sticking to it religiously for 3 weeks I have lost a grand total of 2lbs. I have had no treats, no pasta, no chips, no potatoes, no chocolate, no sugar, extremely limited carbs (like no bread in 3 weeks) etc etc. I have watched my family tuck into fish and chips, pizza, pasta dishes etc etc and have had none. Zero. Nada. I sat there with my egg, avocado, salad and salmon pretending I wasn’t salivating over the smell of the chips. I haven’t once had my absolutely favourite – a creamy mocha latte and on holiday I didn’t treat myself to the cream tea I was desperate for.
In addition we have walked at least 5 miles or cycled over 10 miles each day. This week alone I gained 3lbs. I never put that much weight on, even when I have had a terrible week eating wise. What is that about?
So my verdict on the keto diet. It sucks! I am off out now to buy myself a coffee like the one in the photo and maybe an almond croissant too. Life is too god damn short. See ya!
