Day 647 keto diet update 8/9/2017

It has been a long time since I have posted on my keto dieting. For those of you that have been following me, I had mentioned I had a knee problem. Let me give you an update that is up to date. I decided to seek medical attention back in April. At first we tried 6 weeks of physical therapy that did not work. After this did not work I was referred to surgeon. I had a doctors appointment with the surgeon to discuss possible options and outcomes. At the conclusion of the appointment I had already decided to go with the surgery.

Come forward to July 28th of this year. I had arthroscopic knee surgery. This greatly affect my ability for my keto dieting and exercise. While under, the surgeon just expected to repair my meniscus. He was surprised to see how much cartilage was damaged and floating in my knee. He was able to repair my meniscus with two stitches and cleaned out the floating cartilage. After surgery while I was in recovery he expressed deep concern about all the cartilage issue with in my knee. He compared my knee to someone that was elderly. As of today 8/9, I still have another 2 1/2 weeks of non weight bearing and can not drive a car for another 2 weeks after that.

As of today my keto diet is on hold until, I am able to walk again which is a long recovery.  However, I am still keeping on a low calorie diet so I do not gain anymore weight back then I already did. Before surgery I had gained about 25 pounds back of the 40 I have lost. After I am cleared to walk again I really need to concentrate on getting back on my keto diet and reducing weight drastically. This will prevent me from needing a complete knee replacement for at least 20 years from now. As of now I will try to post weekly about recovery or daily.

  

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 407 to Day 440 6/1 keto diet 12/13/2016- 1/14/2017

Well it has been a really long time since I have post on m keto diet. As of 1/14/2017,  I feel my knee is rested enough to start heading back to the gym in full swing again. These past couple months, I have put on some weight. It is only twenty pounds, but to me that is a lot. In the upcoming weeks I hope to lose some of the weight I had gained. I am still aiming to get down below two hundred pounds. It will be slow going back on to the keto diet to say the least. My wife is in full support so that is really good.  Over the holidays I tried to watch what I ate and still enjoy some foods I rarely touched. After, this week, keto will be back in full swing and hopefully my progress will be back too.

Starting new on my keto blog for the New Year, I will change some things. Instead of blogging daily I will update weekly. To simply put it, I just do not have the time to update my blog daily. So starting with the next blog, I will be updating every seven days. It will be full of daily weigh in pictures and probably my daily diet. These first few weeks will be slow starting. I am hoping by March I will be back in full swing.

To end today’s keto blog I need to mention e-vitamins. I recently ordered from them. They have excellent customer service. Their prices were very reasonable compared all other internet supplement companies. Despite me ordering during the holidays, everything I ordered shipped within a reasonable time. I even got email status updates on my order. I will be ordering from them in the future as well. So if you need some supplements check them out.

Day 403 6/1 keto diet 12/9/2016

I woke up this morning and my usual of weighing myself.  I am a little disappointed on this keto carb loading Friday. For some reason, I have put on a little bit of weight.  I think this was do to some snacking last night after dinner. As of right now, I am still just trying to maintain my weight or at least with in a certain weight range. This is just to get me through the holidays. After the Holidays, I will be 100 % committed to the keto diet again. This will give me less distractions to deal with as well.

For breakfast, I started out with three eggs hard boiled as usual.  I had a mid morning snack of one scoop 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 of guacamole. In the afternoon I had another snack one scoop banana cream pie whey protein. I also had two scoops of cookies and cream carb 10. Both of theses are from tiger fitness.  After work I went to the gym. I worked back and shoulders for about 1 hour. I am not fully back to my gym routine. This is still do to me nursing my knee injury from almost 3 months ago. I have been taking it easy. I used to be able to go into the gym for 90 minutes to two hours without any issues.

After the gym, we came  home and had dinner. We had pasta with some hot sausage and garlic bread. We also cooked appetizers of scallops wrapped in bacon.  This was an awesome dinner to say the least. This was also great for a carb loading keto day.  For dessert we had some low fat ice cream to end the meal.

Day 402 6/1 keto diet 12/8/2016

Well, I am a little shocked today on the keto diet. I have some how dropped a little bit more weight today.  I skipped the gym yesterday and did do some snacking on peanuts. So, I am wondering how I lost the weight from this. The keto diet or any diet, to me makes no sense at all some of the time.  Some days or weeks you can end up losing weight with out any problems while other weeks it is impossible to lose anything at all. Then there is the dreaded word plateau. No, one likes plateauing when trying to lose weight. You get to certain point and have to think do I cut more calories or do I change my workout routine.

Breakfast, I started out with three eggs hard boiled as usual. I had a snack in the morning around 8 am of one scoop 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 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.  Dinner came around, I had six ounces of pork tenderloin and salad with ranch dressing. Today was another off day from the gym as well.

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 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 391 6/1 keto diet 11/27/2016

Well I have some good news for my keto diet today, I am back on it. My weight is way up I was down to 202 before moving and my knee injury, now I am back up to 222. This is not acceptable to myself. Remember a few weeks ago, my goal was to stay between 205 and 215. This obviously  did not work for me. I guess I set an unattainable goal for myself. In the future I will need to set more easily attainable goals for myself.

For breakfast, I did something a little different. I had three eggs, mixed some frozen onions, hot sausage, parmesan cheese and some butter. For lunch I had about 6 ounces of pork tenderloin and one cup of guacamole. Then dinner came around, I had 6 ounces of chicken thighs. Later on I snacked a little on some almonds. My total calories for today were 1691, 37 grams of carb, 120 grams of fat and 117 grams of protein.

During my day specifically in the morning I take a variety of vitamins. These include a multa-vitamin, vitamin D, lysine, zinc, L-glutamine, and a few others.
