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.

I haven't read a lot of your recent posts so I'm not sure if you've done this: do you know about fat bombs made of coconut oil? You mix melted coconut oil with anything you like, such as peanut butter, or just plain cocoa and stevia. Put it in ice cube trays and chill until firm. Lots of healthy fats in those and tastier than butter.

I also eat plenty of avocado which is great for breakfast with just some salt. For fatty snacks try olives!
