30 Day Keto Diet
Can a diet that's mostly fat actually help you lose fat? You're going to find out. This month we're going to try a 30-day challenge on the ketogenic diet. The ketogenic diet is a way of eating where 70 – 80% of your calories come from a healthy fat source and only 5 – 10% of your calories come from carbohydrates and 20 – 25% come from a protein source.
So when you look at the balance of your food you're going to beating a lot more fat the benefits this has is it helps our body switch from glucose metabolism so our bodies are naturally using glucose as energy to fat based metabolism so our bodies are actually taking fat breaking it down into ketones and using that for energy.
I'm a touch nervous to try to to low carb, guys. Low carb has always seemed like a very dirty word to me that I didn't want to partake in but I'm interested to undertake it I'm nervous that I'm going to be Film going to be a little hungry. As a registered dietitian i feel the ketogenic diet is extreme and it's hard to follow but there is a lot of excellent research that shows wonderful health benefits The other concern too is how it's non impact my digestion I'd like to see some weight loss and I feel like I'm trying different diets always to see you know what works I'm excited to see if I can actually go through with the 30 days.
I think it's always nice to incorporate challenges Alright, 30 day… keto challenge… begins now! Eggs, bacon, my eggs were cooked within the bacon fat and butter then a side of avocado Aright, so we're starting the keto diet today and that i just wanted to live my ketone levels in my urine so we've these little test strips you measure it up against this to ascertain this suggests you are not in ketosis this means you’re actually in ketosis and they are detecting levels of ketones in your urine…
Performance of Keto Diet
Mine currently is nothing in order that is sensible i have never started it yet so we’ll see how this changes over subsequent couple days I'll keep you guys posted Okay, keto week 1 is over and what a weird diet is all I can say because I desire i'm eating the greasiest most indulgent meals but i feel I'm losing weight actually I lost tons of water weight within the first week and it really surprised me because i have been eating fat, fat, fat everywhere i do not know I don’t mind tracking i feel for a few people it might be a pain so i have been trying to remain below 20 net carbs each day.
You'll see me performing some math because to work out what percentage net carbs something has you look at the quantity of carbohydrates then you subtract the quantity of fiber in order that gives you your net carbs if it sounds complicated I'm just plugging things into an app and letting it do the work on behalf of me so yeah the tracking on behalf of me has been just quite a stimulating experiment and going to learn more about.
The food that I'm eating… something that is interesting about the keto diet is that you can in fact drink on it I do think that is a nice trade-off is yes you've got really low carb intake but you'll still drink hard alcohol, no beer or wine, it's nice to be ready to leave and still have a drink with your friends if that's a thing that you like to do on weekends.
I have not been very keto strict there’s been carbs, there's carbs every day and sugar… not going to lie I don't know, keto is not for me Here's what it is… I don't eat dairy and I hardly meat so it's really hard on behalf of me to urge thereto ketosis state supported my current diet, all the fat's a touch much on behalf of me , I'm having two spoons of copra oil just to hit my fat content Here's the positive thing about keto It's taught me to label read, it’s really interesting to ascertain just like the carbs and net carbs fiber I've never really paid attention so that's been.
Ketogenic Diet benefits in body
It has been good to truly look fully at the nutritional benefits of the few packaged items that I eat So I've really approached it in can I create a good macronutrient balance when I'm eating soda I have protein do I have vegetables do I have a good source of fat and i have been trying to form the fat that I eat a touch bit higher amount than I normally do my energy levels which I was really curious to see how they would be impacted, those have been pretty consistent… one week down, three more weeks to go who knows how this is going to go?
One thing that is blowing my mind aboutness is how much more money I'm spending on groceries I used to spend $65 a week at Trader Joe's I just did a run today and it was $95 so I think that's because usually I stock up on a lot of sweet potatoes, more veggies and now I'm really having to have an animal protein with every meal which really adds up Just finished my run and therefore the real McCoy I wanted to check with this keto diet for the month was I was really curious to see how it was going to impact my endurance sometimes.
When I fatigue during a run albeit it's three miles my legs start to feel really heavy but that never happened… and appearance at that! We're doing it Sorry if this is often gross… What I even have noticed that’s been pretty interesting about being on this ketogenic diet is my energy levels and my desire to eat so while I do believe food pretty frequently throughout the day i do not have this really intense hunger that I wont to wear my prior diet… the simplest thing that I've had on this diet is Vanessa made lemon bars and people were insane Vanessa's lemon bars were delicious they're so good.
Ketosis of meal diet plan
I don’t know what she put in them I do like the keto dessert options that I've made so I like those lemon bars that I made those are really good Mood wise I don't feel I do not feel bad cause i do not think I'm I don’t think I'm fully like going into keto or ketosis I've had tons of more meat so my digestion to be honest is not on point I will say this though I'm not terribly hungry come dinner time right now I feel really good, I feel consistent feel like I'm getting the best sleep ever yeah.
I sleep really hard and I don’t want to get up in the morning which is unusual for me One thing i'm doing is taking HUM's Ripped Rooster supplement which has 7-Keto and therefore the supplement is quite designed to only help your bodily process fat more efficiently so it's kind of just like a helpful boost in your keto journey.
I've been really fixated on sugar and I was dreaming about Mammas last night and today Sarah, what you got there? Wait a minute! What the…!? I'm feeling good mainly because I'm not a hundred percent doing keto as correctly as I should Buti still haven't had any grains for the whole month of July which i feel is sort of impressive on behalf of me.
The one thing that i'm worried about as far as my gut goes is simply the thought that with such a lot fat we're going to tip off the diversity and I'm really going to start to grow out these bacteria that are eating fat primarily and that are starting to eat bile acids and things like that so within the back of my mind I'm just thinking like oh god my microbiome goes to be shifted and potentially negatively impacted by this diet… no!!!! I'm eating raspberries and I can't be on diet that makes me not eat raspberries nature's candy Day 30! Still got it…
So, here's all the pizza that everybody else ate Here was my salad… last week of keto! Keto's finally over, thank god. What I learned from keto is that it's really hard to eliminate an entire food group such as grains and legumes but I did learn how many carbs are in things that never would have thought of that being fruits and my coconut water and pretty much everything that we eat so not that I'm going to continue to count carbs but I’m definitely more aware…
I personally don't think i might ever try keto again simply because I found it so challenging because i do not eat meat I was eating such a lot more meat this month than I normally do So within the last 30 days I lost 5 pounds which isn't bad considering i used to be eating butter, bacon, copra oil , many fatty things a day and that i was still ready to leave and drink with my friends on the weekends so yeah it's weird to have lost five pounds considering all of that was still allowed I desire i will be able to deduct from this that I can live without eating the maximum amount bread and should enjoy more healthy fats.
My overall take on keto is I liked the way it impacted my energy soap lot of times when I get hungry I get very irritable I get cranky maybe even mean and that didn't happen it was just a very even energy and then I was when IWars hungry I was hungry and I ate something that was high in fat but I don’t think it's something that's sustainable or realistic for the future the keto diet are some things that i might recommend but in small periods of time.
I don't think it's something that most people should go on for an extended period of time I think if you have certain genetic variations it can actually be a detriment to you to do a keto diet especially if your body's notable to process and convert saturated fats in an efficient way but I do totally support eating higher amounts of fats, lower amounts of processed carbohydrates and just being conscious of your macronutrient balance making it a touch bit more fat and vegetable heavy versus carbohydrate heavy – that is the end of the 30-day keto challenge, if you wish this video plow ahead provides it a thumbs up, provides a comment below and let us know what you thought and hopefully we’ll see you again on the next thirty day challenge!
