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.
Summer lunch ideas have been the most troublesome for me this year, for some reason. No idea why. I seem to have breakfast and dinner in order, but midday comes around, and it’s like I’ve never had to prepare my own lunches before.
I’ve decided to create a weight loss challenge for myself to really dig deep into the motivation driving me to reach my goals. I’m already focusing on an overall balanced diet, (mostly) regular exercise, and taking APEX-TX5 because my results were happening so slowly.
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.
My weight loss is slow right now. A lot slower than it was at the start. I know that it’s normal for things to go quickly for the first few weeks because it’s actually a lot of water loss and body composition changes going on and not necessarily fat burning.
Okay, so I’m going to tackle the topic of keto cheat days this week. I know this is a controversial topic, and I know that I am not a medical expert. Please consider this an opinion piece based on my personal experience.
Nutritional psychology is a subject I stumbled upon on social media – of all places – and that sent me into a massive online rabbit hole to better understand what it’s all about. Keeping in mind that even with all my best googling, I’m still eons from becoming an expert, I still thought this topic was fascinating enough that I wanted to share it.
Are lentils healthy? That’s what I found myself asking a few weeks ago and ended up diving deep into the rabbit hole until I’d discovered all sorts of great facts, most of which I don’t remember anymore.
I’m still in early days when it comes to recording keto diet results. Feels like I’ve been doing this for quite some time, but I’m still only several weeks in. Still, I’d like to share what my progress looks like so far.
I am sooooo ready for summer this year and have my first three low-cal dessert recipes all lined up and ready to go. If you’re ready for backyard BBQs and relaxing in the heat with something sweet and cool after dinner, I’m glad you’ve found this post!
The days of finding weight loss motivation in bikinis or skinny jeans have loooong passed. They used to drive me, but these days, I find that any help they give me is either short-lived or non-existent. In fact, over the last year, thinking about clothes that don’t fit has really only caused me stress. It hasn’t pushed me forward to do anything great for myself.
Finding out how to eat dandelions was never a thing I thought I would be investigating. They’re weeds, right? You pick them out of the lawn and hope they never come back (even though they always do). Springtime and later in the summer used to be a constant war between my mom and these little yellow flowers.
I’ve been bouncing back and forth about if stevia is healthy or not. Based on what I see on my Facebook account, it is absolutely the best sugar substitute and absolutely not to be used…how’s that for solid information?
I never once in my life thought that I would be able to stop sugar cravings. I have the biggest sweet tooth of anyone I know…except probably Holly. She really takes the cake (see what I did there). It was one of the things I was most hesitant about with starting my keto diet.
So, the spring is moving along a lot more quickly than it usually does, so I’m ready to share this year’s fast meals for weight loss. I’m hoping to make this something I do maybe every season or at least every year. It’s a great way to freshen up what we’re eating without taking any more time.
I’ve reached the point that I’m ready to share my keto tips for beginners. Based on the research I’ve done on my own behalf, my own successes and my own blunders, I’ve got some things to say about the ketogenic diet and what the experience is all about.
So, it’s my week to blog again and after Marley and I have both been struggling, I thought I’d talk about how to know if you’re following the wrong diet for you. After all, I’ve been testing out turmeric for weight loss (and I’ll get into that a bit in a minute) while Marley struggled a lot through her first week with the keto diet.
The keto diet plan is definitely more than I bargained for. I give Holly credit for giving it a try, and I can see where there is a lot of room for error. I can also understand why she gave up. Am I going to give up? Not a chance!
Marley may be trying ketogenic dieting and has already ordered keto diet pills to support her, but on my side of this blog, I’m going to see what turmeric for weight loss will do. I’ve been interested in this for a while. In fact, I know I’m pretty late to the party....
Spring weight loss is by far the easiest. Whenever I’ve tried to drop a few pounds at this time of year, I’ve always been successful. I don’t mean that I’ve always met my goal – and I definitely haven’t kept it off – but it gives me hope. This is a great time to get...
Learning how to cook asparagus has been a lengthy experience for me. I’ve always wanted to like this vegetable. It’s one of the first fresh options available in the spring and I’m always hearing about how nutrient packed they are. But I really don’t like their...
There are a lot of ways to measure weight loss. A lot of them include using a measuring tape or taking photographs over time. Still, I don’t think anyone reading this blog would be surprised to find out that the most common way we use is the simple bathroom scale. ...
