Keto Dieting Tips

Keto Dieting Tips I Discovered to Make This Weight Loss Diet Realistic

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I gave keto dieting a try and gave up on it back in April. That said, after discussing the issue with a few friends who love this type of high-fat diet and the results it’s getting them, I got some handy keto dieting tips that are changing my mind.

I’ve been giving keto dieting another go. It has been working out much better this time. I’d made a lot of mistakes with the diet when I first gave it a try. This sabotaged my results. I also found that it simply didn’t fit into my lifestyle. However, the more I talked about it, the more I found that there were some great ways to make it fit into my lifestyle where it didn’t before.

Here are some of the keto dieting tips I learned. Here is why they made me give this strategy another chance.

Losing Weight for Health Besides Calories

Losing Weight for Health Means Tracking More Than Calories

If you want to lose weight, you can usually bank on cutting calories and exercising as your main two strategies. That said, if you’re doing it because you actually want to be healthy, then you’re going to have to pay attention to a lot more than that.

Ever heard of the Twinkie Diet? Or the McDonald’s Diet? Yes, if you can stand doing that day in and day out (has anyone actually done it?) you may meet your weight goals on the scale. However, in terms of nutrition and overall wellbeing, you may not meet any goals at all.

importance of Healthy Breakfast

Is My Healthy Breakfast Not the Most Important Meal of the Day?

I’ve always been a “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” person. Even in my last year of high school when I was skipping breakfast every morning so I could get fifteen more minutes of sleep, I still believed it was the most important.

I’d always been taught that it was the best meal for keeping your weight under control, for getting your energy up at the start of the day and for just doing things right overall. Study after study has backed up my belief, so I’ve never had any reason to doubt it…until now.
A study conducted by a research team at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Its senior author was Flavia Cicuttini, the head of the university’s musculoskeletal unit.

Forgiving Myself for Eating Everything

How I’m Using January to Forgive Myself for Eating Everything in December

I’m not proud of the way I handled myself in December. I went in with a very reasonable plan. I even stuck to the plan to a certain extent. I told myself that I could taste treats within reason, have decent portions of rich meals when I wasn’t picking them for myself (for example, when I was at a friend or family’s house), and eat healthy the rest of the time. I also told myself I’d keep up with my exercises to make sure I’m doing as much damage control as possible. Christmas day had no rules.

Did I keep up with the plan? Not really. I started off very well. I was very proud of myself right up until Christmas day. Then, everything fell apart. I think it happened because I was just so tired from everything throughout the holidays that I gave up. All the visits, shopping, decorating, baking and everything else took a toll on me that I hadn’t expected. Once Christmas was over, I was utterly exhausted.
