Today was my first day of trying keto (a really low carb diet, for those of you who don't know what it is). I admit it's not my ideal, and I have reservations, but some people have had a lot good luck with it. My only experiences previously were something called the Dukan diet, which was so low in carb that it was undoable. It was days of absolutely nothing but meat. It wasn't until you pass the first 2-7 days that you are allowed vegetables at all (and even then you rotate out protein days and protein+veg days)
But I digress, I'm doing a standard low carb diet this time. I've been just having a lot of problems with a standard calorie control diet. I'm finding it far too easy to drift. I know a low carb diet won't really magically fix that, but I figure it'll get my brain back into focus. My belief is it'll either work, or that it'll be enough motivation for me to get back into behaving well with my calorie counting diet.
My food choices today were delicious. I started off with a feta omelette and some bacon. For lunch, I had a large salad topped with chicken, more feta, olives, and dressing. Tea was very fancy and I had steak with mushroom sauce, broccoli, and more salad. I'm going to have a tiny bag of nuts as a snack.
My energy levels aren't so bad today. I fully admit I'm getting some sugary cravings, but that's probably a lot due to spending a lot of time binging recently. I'll see how I feel tomorrow.
