Time for a Change: The Lazy Keto Diet Plan Isn’t Working

by | Aug 4, 2021 | Weight Loss Tips | 0 comments

In my last post, I wrote about how I was switching to the Lazy Keto diet plan, because the traditional ketogenic version – as helpful as it is – was becoming unsustainable for me. I lost a lot of weight on it, and it was surprisingly easy to stick to as long as I was mainly keeping at home and staying out of stores and restaurants.  That said, the more things opened up, and I started living my life and seeing my friends, the more impossible it was to realistically stick to this way of eating.

The Lazy Keto Diet Plan Didn’t Fix Anything

As I explained in my post saying that I was going to try the Lazy Keto diet plan, I wanted to stick to keto dieting, because I have found it effective, and I like the way it works. I just needed some more wiggle room to be able to live my life in a realistic way while I kept it up!

If you follow this blog closely, you may have noticed that Holly took on the last two blog posts, instead of alternating with me as we usually do. It’s because I’ve felt like serious garbage ever since I really got started with this new strategy. It’s just not working for me, which makes me sad and frustrated at the same time.

Why It Didn’t Work

For me – I can’t speak for everyone – it looks like ketogenic dieting is an all-or-nothing thing. I tried the Lazy Keto diet plan to the best of my ability, but I couldn’t seem to maintain ketosis! In the last two and a half weeks, I got the keto flu twice, meaning that I was on the right track to getting into ketosis, but then as soon as I’d start feeling better, it was like I just lost the whole thing. I don’t think I was ever really maintaining ketosis at all, but just starting to, feeling awful, and then losing it.

That’s why Holly was good enough to write a blog instead of me last week. I wasn’t up to it. I felt sick all the time and had no energy. I didn’t lose any weight throughout that time, but to be fair, I didn’t gain any either. That’s probably because for so many days, I didn’t feel good enough to have anything more than soup and a few other things here and there.

What’s Next?

So, you might be asking what’s next for me now that the Lazy Keto diet plan is out of the question.  I’m not exactly sure.  I’m thinking about a few things.  I’m considering trying Noom, Fitbit, or maybe one of the free diets on ShareFit. I want something structured, with some guidance. I’ll decide soon. I’m starting to feel a lot better now, so it’ll be easier for me to think this through.

I still plan to give my free bottle of FENFAST 375 a try.  I have spent some time reading up on its reviews and ingredients and feel it’s pretty promising.  I know whatever diet I try, I’ll appreciate the support it gives.

If you have tried Noom, I’d love it if you would tell me if you loved it or not. Just comment on any of my Facebook posts or tweets. I’d really appreciate it if you do. Thanks in advance!

Overeating Doesn’t Cause Obesity, but Your Food Choices Do

Overeating Doesn’t Cause Obesity, but Your Food Choices Do

So, it turns out that overeating doesn’t cause obesity. There’s been a lot of new research out there recently that has absolutely blown my mind. Holly recently blogged about how some pesticides can hold back weight loss so eating organic foods might actually give you an advantage. I recently read (and tweeted about) how aging doesn’t slow your metabolism as previously believed. Now, research is showing that it’s definitely not the amount we eat that causes us to gain weight!

What is Metabolism? It’s Not an Organ, It’s a Process

What is Metabolism? It’s Not an Organ, It’s a Process

What is metabolism? If you are even remotely like me, then you thought it was a part of your body. I didn’t think it was a specific organ or anything, but I thought it was a system. Like the circulatory system. I thought there was something like a metabolic system.  Turns out, nope.  It’s not a thing at all.  That’s why the question was worded that way in the title without a “the”.  It’s a process.  It’s something your whole body does, right down to each individual cell

The Connection Between Estrogen and Exercise

The Connection Between Estrogen and Exercise

It’s not even slightly shocking to me to hear that hormones play a role in physical activity and that estrogen and exercise are linked.  As a woman, the link between various hormones and our lifestyles can often be more than obvious.  They influence every part of the way our bodies function.
