Day 653 keto Update 8/15/2017

As many of you have read my last post about keto, I am rehabbing my knee for the next couple weeks. I am not actually in keto right now. However I am maintaining a low calorie diet. The thing that really gets me is one day of running caused a pretty bad injury in my knee.  This injury as we all know has greatly affect my diet. With any diet I always think some supplements will only help out.

Recently I was introduced to Body Spartan , this company is fairly new. It was started by retired WWE wrestler Gabe “T-Reks” Tufts. Body Spartan currently has some supplements that will work well on keto diet or any diet for that matter. The team is really focused on helping out their clients to meet their maximum fitness goals. Currently they have an app you can put on phone for shredding. As soon as I am cleared to go back to the gym I plan to use this 12 week shedding program.  Shredding is what everyone wants when they are on a diet anyway. My new goal, for this blog along with weight loss is to get the Body Spartan  name out.


If anyone wants to find more out about this fantastic company please check them out. Body Spartan is the new wave the future for maximum fitness potential. I attached several links through out this blog post about this new up and coming company. If you want to see great improvements with over health please check them out. Another suggestion I have is to look up Gabe “T-Reks” Tufts. This guy is the real deal in when it comes to fitness. Like I said I am really going to make this great company known to everyone.

Day 455 to 461 6/1 keto diet 1/29/2017 to 2/4/2017

I have finally had a successful week on keto again. This is the first time in awhile where I have seen some weight loss as well. It was a great week for one particular reason, that is, I started measuring food again. This is extremely important when it comes to a keto diet. Measuring food, is actually important for all diet regardless if it is a keto diet or not. Now, I did not see any drastic weight changes this week just small ones. I am just happy I am slowly getting back on track. The upcoming weeks will really tell if I am back on track. They will show if my weight starts dropping again if I am back on track.

During my Friday carb load, I tried something different. The only carbs, I added to the day were two scoops of carb 10 from MTS.  This put my total carb intake on that day to around 80 grams of carbs. I usually would eat a  bunch of potatoes or some other carbs for my carb loading. I am really trying to get my weight back down. On Saturday, I also watched my carb intake. For breakfast, I had two slices of ezkiel bread with a two tablespoons of peanut butter and 1/2 cup of oat meal with a scoop of protein. If I, continue to weight food in the upcoming weeks I should be able to see my weight starting to drop again drastically. Right now, on keto, I am aiming for 1900 calories a day due to the fact I have a physical job.

I also continued my weight lifting starting, Sunday, Monday, Friday and Saturday. The above, was my weight on Saturday which give me a total weigh loss for the week of just over two pounds. I will continue to carb load like I did this week.

Day 448 to 454 6/1 keto diet 1/22/2017 to 1/28/2017

This week on keto was unsuccessful to say the least. I have not adjusted yet back to the high fat low carb diet. This is proving more of a challenge then I originally thought. The week started out with me in the mid 220 again. This weight puts me up twenty pounds from 4 months ago. That weight was also before I heart my knee running. Remember, I was training to run a half marathon. I think, I have a plan for the upcoming week to finally get back on the keto diet. To start, I am going to re-adjust my calories back up to 1900. This is where I was at last year when I plateaued. My job was also a desk job at this time last year. The other thing I will do is absolutely stay away from snacking after dinner.

The photos above do show some progress, but I am still not where I want to be. I was hoping to be down around 185 to 195 pounds by now. My thought is, I will have to work harder and eat smarter. My carb loading did not help either as my weight went back up by six pounds. The adjustments, I am going to make for the upcoming week will really help me start losing weight again.The key to weight loss is calories in then calories out.  This week I also made it to the gym all but one day.  Exercise is vital to a keto diet. I am back to lifting weight Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. I am slowly getting back into the routine

I used to have before moving jobs and hurting my knee. The only thing really left, is to get the diet really back on track.In the next upcoming week should be interesting and challenging for myself. It will be huge, when I finally do get back on the diet and start losing weight again.

Day 406 6/1 keto diet 12/12/2016

Well, the low calorie intake yesterday really helped out with the keto diet as of this morning. Like I said yesterday, I need more days like that than any others. If I could live on 1200 calories a day for a little bit, I would lose a significant amount of weight to say the least. The overall hunger factor would be the hardest thing to deal with when it comes to a keto diet. As soon as I reach below 1600 calories, I continue to be hungry no matter what. Hunger control is always the most difficult thing to deal with when it comes to a diet, keto or not. I have said it one thousand times, dieting is all in your head. You can control your diet and weight if you put your mind to it. The other thing you need is raw will power to do it.

Today started out like most other days on keto with three eggs hard boiled. I had a mid morning snack of one scoop of banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. For lunch, I had a 6 ounce chicken breast and one cup of guacamole. In the afternoon, I had another snack of one scoop of banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. For dinner I think I had some pork tenderloin and a salad.

Day 401 6/1 keto diet 12/7/2016

I woke up this morning and there is no change from yesterday for weight loss today.  This week on keto is unpredictable like most other weeks. I am assuming, I did not lose any weight because I was snacking last night on almonds.  That word, snacking, will definitely prevent me from reaching my goal weight if  I do not learn how to control it.  My other choice  would be to , just exercise more. This would help me burn more calories. The snacking would have less affect on me then. Realistically this is not the way to go. To, really lose weight, I should cut my caloriers and stay around 1600 as well as cutting the snacking out.

For breakfast, I had three hard boiled.  This, is still the easiest thing in the morning instead of cooking so early in the morning. I had a snack around 8 am of one scoop banana cream pie from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil.  A few hours later, I had lunch, which was six ounces of chicken thigh meat and one cup of guacamole. In the afternoon, I had another snack of one scoop banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Today, I was off from the gym and just went home to relax. For dinner, I had six ounces of pork tenderloin and a salad with ranch dressing.

On a keto diet or any diet it is  good to relax once in awhile. I am also still unsure on my knee so this is why I took off from the gym today as well. It is good to take a break from the gym or exercise and just relax. For me it is especially important to have my knee healed up properly so I do not re-injure it again so easily.

Day 400 6/1 keto diet 12/6/2016

I do have to say, this is one of my biggest accomplishment on the keto diet to say the least. I have made it to 400 days of dieting and to me this is one heck of an accomplishment. Looking back that far I never thought I would make it to this point. I know it has been a bumpy ride to say the least. This is especially true looking back at the past eight weeks.  I can say I was on the keto diet kind of or at least just trying to maintain my weight. If you would of asked me six months ago if you thought I would make it this far I probably would of said no.

For breakfast, I had three eggs as usual at 5am. I had a mi morning snack of one scoop of banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and  1 1/2  tablespoons of olive oil.  Lunch came around, I had six ounces of chicken thigh meat and one cup of guacamole. In the afternoon I had another snack of one scoop banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness.  For dinner, I had some fish and a salad with ranch dressing. I also went to the gym and did cardio, about thirty minutes on the elliptical. At this point, I am not really sure if my knee is 100% yet. I still think I may need to go see an orthopedist and have it looked at.

The only things, I have been drinking is coffee and water. I may have an occasional diet coke. I really stay away from all the other soft drinks and anything with sugar in it really. There is not a reason to drink anything else besides these. There is an exception if you are drinking tea that is unsweetened.

Day 399 6/1 keto diet 12/5/2016

I would say I am surprised about today and my keto diet but I would be lying. I new I had kept my calories extremely low all day Sunday. This effected the start of my work week as of this morning. Months ago, I had concentrated eating about 1200 calories on Sunday so that I would really be down by the end of the week. Eating this low of calories, seems to have some sort of jump start for a keto cycling diet. I think it really helped me out for a few months of doing that.

For breakfast this morning at 5am, I had three hard boiled eggs. Once again this is the easiest thing, I can cook in the morning. I had a mid morning snack of one scoop of banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. For lunch, I had six ounces of chicken thigh meat and one cup guacamole. In the afternoon, I had another snack of one scoop banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. After work I went to the gym and did a light leg workout. For dinner I had eight ounces of swai fish and a salad with ranch dressing.

To be honest attempting to diet or lose weight during the holidays is extremely difficult. I often wonder why people do it to themselves. Then, I look at myself and realize I am one of those individuals. The keto diet itself, is not for the weak. If you remember, you are cutting almost all carbohydrates out of your system, but luckily only for a short time. This can cause a lot of different psychological effects on people if they have not studied.  As for me, I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The light is my goal weight.

Day 398 6/1 keto diet 12/4/2016

Well I am really surprised about my keto diet today. Even though I ate a lot of food yesterday, I still managed to drop some weight as of this morning. As of right now, I have know idea how this is even possible with everything I ate yesterday. If, I look at what I ate at the buffet, it was mostly protein. I stayed clear away from any pasta or flour products on the buffet. This is probably what helped me as of this morning for weight loss. It is still truly shocking to myself, regardless of what I ate or did not eat.

Well today was different than almost all others when it comes to food. To be honest, I hardly ate anything at all compared to other keto days. I skipped breakfast this morning which is totally not normal for me at all. I had one scoop of banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. For dinner, I had about ten or twelve hot wings. We also had some srircha shrimp for dinner. So as you can see I really hardly ate anything for today. I also think I was under 1400 calories for the day. The other weird thing is that I am not hungry as of right now.

On another positive not regarding keto and weight loss, we made it to the gym again. We spent about seventy minutes at the gym today. I lifted, I worked chest, tricep and biceps. Once again, it really feels great to be back in the gym after so long. This could be the start of a positive week on keto. I am even thinking that I might see 209 lbs again by Friday. This would be a great and positive thing to see, but my self control for eating will be the ultimate decision.

Day 397 6/1 keto diet 12/3/2016

I am very upset with how my keto diet has gone this week. I have clearly been indulging too much and literally pigging out as well. This is just going to affect how long it take me to lose weight and get down to my goal weight. That goal weight really seems far away with these past couple months. To me at times, it is like it almost out of reach completely because of my lack of self control. I cannot reiterate how important it is to maintain and stay on a stable diet. This as we all know is all just in your mind to just do it.

Today was one messed up day when it comes to keto dieting. For breakfast I had three chocolate chip pancakes with syrup. This was just the start of a bad eating day. We also ordered some crepes made with nutella, bananas and cream cheese.  In the evening my wife and I walked around the mall then went to get dinner. We ended up at chineses, japanese and sushi buffet. Between these meals today and yesterdays cheese steak pizza, my diet was completely jacked up for the past forty eight hours. This time last year I had it figured out or at least I thought I had.

Day 396 6/1 keto diet 12/2/2016

Well as expected with this Friday on keto, I have not dropped any more weight. I am honestly no surprised at all, I have snacked just about every night after dinner. Some of this snacking involved eating whole cans of almonds. I really need to get my self control back so I can really concentrate on my goal weight for the new year. If I eliminate snacking I am pretty sure the weight will start coming off again. The other thing I really need to concentrate on is not over eating with the 24 hour carb load up, the friday to saturday time frame. I have been noticing myself over eating a lot on these days.

Today, I actually got up and enjoyed my breakfast. I cooked egg, proscutto, bacon, blue cheese and onions. I sauteed the onions in some butter, and cooked the meat separate then mixed the eggs and blue cheese in after everything else was cooked. Before going to the gym I drank one scoop of banana cream pie from tiger fitness and some C4 pre workout. We went to the gym, I worked back and shoulders. This workout, I new would hurt hours later but it just felt good to get into the gym again. I ended up lifting weight for about an hour. My knee is still acting a little weird, so I skipped cardio.

After the gym is where I completely killed the diet for the week. I came home and had four slices of cheese steak pizza. Then we went to go watch some fire works and ate again. We had garlic parmesan wings, sweet potato fries and popcorn shrimp. After that we came home had personal lemon pies. Then we watched a movie and popped popcorn with butter. So between the pizza and other food my diet die for for the week.
