Day 462 to 468 6/1 keto diet 2/5/2017 to 2/11/2017

Even for only updating my keto diet blog update once a week, I seem to be having issues doing that. I am well beyond a week behind on my blogging. This past week was not successful for weight loss for some reason. I think there is some issues of me snacking after dinner. According to my fit pal my calories are almost spot on until after dinner. Then I end up snacking like ninety minutes before bed which really does not help my keto diet at all. I am really going to have to make some serious adjustments over the next coming week if  I am going to lose weight on the keto diet again.

 

Above are the weight I saw through the week on the keto diet. It has still been difficult. My daily meals remain the same for the most, three eggs for breakfast, a protein shake with olive oil for snack, chicken breast  and advocado for lunch. Then another protein shake and olive oil for a snack in the afternoon. I would come home and go to to the gym after work in the evening.  After that I would eat dinner which would be chicken or fish and some green vegetables.

To add to my weight not going back down, I am still having knee problems. Remember I hurt my knee back in September. I thought it had healed up. Well I was completely wrong with that. With the keto diet not being on track with me and my knee bothering me these weeks have been not going well.

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 405 6/1 keto diet 12/11/2016

I have made it yet another Sunday on keto or for me the beginning of the cycle again. As mentioned before, the holiday time is here. I have been really slacking off when it comes to keep this blog up to date. After the New Year, I promise this will change alot.  I am making a promise to be hitting the diet really hard and keeping this updated everyday as I can. It is also really difficult for me to keep this up just because of what time of the morning I go into work and how many hours I work.  I am up at 445am most morning, and by the time I get home I am dead tired. The other thing is, I just like to zone out after most days as well. If I could become a full time blogger that would be awesome.

For breakfast, I had three eggs, hot sausage, some bacon and some pepper jack cheese. This is a great start to a keto Sunday. As far as the rest of the day, I really tried to fast or eat less. Then dinner came around, I had six ounces of pork tenderloin and salad with ranch dressing. For my diet to work, I need more days like this to be an everyday dieting effect for me.

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 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.
