My Keto Blog - My Journey.

I weighed myself a couple weeks before 2018 and discovered I weighed 315 pounds. I had quit smoking a couple years prior. At the time I weighed around 245 pounds and really packed on the weight while quitting that terrible habit. I decided I would lose at least 50 to 100 pounds in 2018.

 I decided to weigh myself again in October of 2018 after dieting or at least eating healthy all summer. I had only lost around 20 pounds for the year. Disgusted and discouraged I knew I would put the weight right back on as soon as the holidays arrived. I needed to do something drastic!

 As I began scouring the internet for diet ideas I kept coming across websites dedicated to ketogenic dieting. Each site made outrageous claims about the amount of weight the participants lost. Each site was a testimonial to how good they felt after trying the diet. After finding site after site talking about this, I decided to try it myself. I got into ketogenic dieting extremely skeptical, and three months later I'm a huge believer.

Between the middle of October till Christmas eve I had managed to lose almost 50 pounds. Let me repeat that, I lost close to fifty pounds in under three months. I am now a keto believer and further proof that the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting works! 

On Christmas Eve of 2018, I stopped dieting. I decided to enjoy the holidays and eat whatever I wanted. The last time I weighed myself, I had put 20 pounds of the weight back on. Honestly, I expected that. I ate like a pig throughout the holidays. I drank beer, consumed other carbohydrates, and gorged myself on all the food I deprived myself of over the last 3 months.

Tomorrow morning, I'll weigh myself one last time before returning to my diet. My goal for 2019 is to get below 200 pounds. I'd honestly like to do it before July of 2019. For motivation, I've decided to blog my experience here on blogger.

I will state right now, I'm not a nutritionist or any type of health expert. This is just a chronicle of what worked for me. I'll be posting diet results, recipes, as well as keeping a journal of what I consume and how I fast.

I would strongly recommend consulting a physician before starting any diet. Drastic times call for drastic measures, so some of my dieting techniques may even be unhealthy. Take this into consideration if you're thinking about copying me.
