Hello Weight Losing Fans...
I am still doing the Ketogenic Diet...
I am still hanging in there. It's not easy to do. I don't recommend this to the faint-of-heart. I mean that. It's very hard to get enough fat without going to absolute extremes. I mean things like using bullet proof coffee. And, I am currently listening to a video where the man is saying the ketogenic diet is boring. It's boring to eat the same thing all the time. I agree.
Am I going to join the carbohydrate crowd? Well, not yet. I had an orange last night. That was about 30-grams of carbohydrates. I am still in the experimental mode. I am going to the extremes of fat consumption. That's hard to do. I don't like pure fat. To be honest I don't want to look at another stick of butter.
Here is the problem: I am Insulin resistant. I am not Insulin Sensitive. I have to be extreme. Yes, I lost weight on 1,500 calories a day. Now, it doesn't work.
I was wrong about something, I used to write I could eat 3-Snickers Bars a day and lose weight. I never tried it. And, I might be right. Only the cravings I would have after wards would be unbearable. I mean it, when I was a sugar-holic. I was craving sugar all the time. I wanted sugar and sweets. It became hard to not stick my hand in a bowl of candy at some one's counter.
The other problem with sugar is it contributes to the aging process. That's right sugar ages us. As hard as this lifestyle is, I don't want to accelerate my aging process. And, I must admit, it's damned uncomfortable carrying around 4-bowling balls on my stomach. I hate the bulge of my tummy.
My dream is to trim up, get down, and look better. My dream is not to be possessed with food. Yes, when I lost 60-Pounds, that's all I could think of was food. I wrote about it. Well, on this diet, I don't want to look at food. I dread eating. I mean it. Even though I get someone hungry, I don't want to eat.
Now every once and a while I crave something sweet. So last night I ate an orange. That was it.
I try to bulk up on green vegetable such as Spinach and green beans mixed with butter. But, I don't sit there looking forward to eating them. I eat them because I have to. It keeps everything getting up and moving out. I don't know how many macro-nutrients I get from them. I just eat them.
As I have written before, just don't expect to see the high speed fat loss. It's not going to happen. It will come about some day, but not like expected on a calorie restricted diet.
Just remember: I screen comments. If I don't like your comment, I send it off into cyberspace. If you are anonymous, those comments too go to the trash bin.
That's the way it is... I'm David Dane
