I hate to admit it but I’m starting Lazy Keto as a last-ditch attempt to save my diet and stick to this type of strategy. I’m pretty down right now. I’m trying not to be, but I’m discouraged because I’ve had such great progress and for a while it was pretty great keeping ketosis going…then it all seems to have changed.
The Reason I’m Starting Lazy Keto
As soon as the summer started, things seemed to change for me with my dieting. I found it a lot harder to stick to the extreme limitations of this type of diet. I kept trying to cheat and kept losing my ketosis and having to go through the whole process of getting it started again. I’ve lost a lot of weight and for a while I was doing so well with the regular ketogenic diet. It became second nature to follow it. It wasn’t hard and I had tons of energy…but then things changed.
As barbecue season started, and I began visiting with friends and wanting to have what everyone else was having…
So, I stumbled upon an article about Lazy Keto and even though it looks far from perfect and there’s a lot of criticism going about it, I’m giving that a try. I’m also switching diet pills.
Starting a New Diet Pill, Too
In my last blog post about keto cheat days, at the end I mentioned that I’d still be using a diet pill even though I was switching to a lighter version of the diet. This is true, and I’ve decided to switch away from the KETO FASTCUT product I’d been using. It served me well. It really did. But I’m changing mindsets and want a fresh start.
When I bought the diet pills I’d been using, I got several bottles at a time and they sent me a free gift of FENFAST 375. I’d planned to ask Holly if she wanted them, but she decided to try something else. So, the free gift stayed on my shelf. Now, I’m going to give it a try as I get going with Lazy Keto.
So Far So Good with Lazy Keto
The version of Lazy Keto I’m doing is based on the same principles as the ketogenic diet I’ve been doing until now. The change is that it is less strict. I’ve previously been carefully calculating my carbs, fat, protein and overall calories, with a very meticulous balance so I could stay in ketosis.
With Lazy Keto, it’s just a matter of tracking carb intake. I’m still planning to pay attention go overall calories while making sure that I aim for similar targets that I had been following with the original version of the diet. But the only thing I’ll be really strict about is carbs. I feel like this decrease in restrictions will help me to realistically keep it up for longer. At worst, it will still help me to keep my sugar intake (and cravings) under control and keep me away from things like white flour-based food. That’s good for me anyway, so even if it turns out to be a flop with losing weight, at least it will still help me to make some nutritious food choices.
