Today I’m going to be sharing the long awaited three-month keto diet update. It is unscripted and unedited, I am talking to you about my three months of Keto, so let’s just get into it so the third month how did I go well fantastic i love it i’m loving this diet more and more and more everyday although i really hate calling it a diet it’s a way of life and a couple of changes that happened this month the first one is I no longer to count my macros or my calories.
I kind of found myself counting less and less. And kind of gauging and after a couple of months i know i’m in a routine I kind of have the same things for breakfast it’s usually eggs of some description which I’ve shared heaps with you the past.
Lunch will be salad usually or if I’m out about probably bunless burger and then dinner will usually be my meat of the day or chicken or if I have a meat free Monday something like cauliflower mac and cheese.
And so that its kind of set in my ways if I need a snack in between I go strawberries and cream or some nuts and i feel quite comfortable doing that because for me in the past when I’ve been on diet and I’ve counted calories or counted points or counted whatever macros, I find when I’m on diet then I can go off diet and as soon as I stopped counting the weight it comes back on with interest so I found it more beneficial to really learn I spent my first two months really learning my foods and a third month i spent just enjoying myself and so when it comes to weight loss the first month I lost five kilos second months two and a half and this third month another two-and-a-half so the total is at 10.
4 kilos which I am so happy with. I have noticed a massive difference in myself my clothing is fitting on me loose. I have been on a couple of shopping trips i’m trying to sort of cut back on shopping and went into a little bit smaller because my clothes kind of fit me for now and i’m just enjoying my wardrobe this dress i got recently a new dress and I love it and I feel so good in it and I’m getting smaller and smaller sizes which is amazing and I’ve taken a couple of photos of myself with before when i first started and kind of now and I when I look at the difference it’s it’s mind-boggling.
I feel i believe i lost more than ten point four kilos i have taken measurements those have come down as well although it’s yeah not not much as I had thought in my waist in my hips but then I do feel like my legs are more muscular arms and more muscular and I’m just feeling so much smaller when it looks like more than 10 kilos it feels more than 10 kilos.
And really what does a number on the scale mean when I feel amazing and when I’ve had other amazing health benefits one benefit which i have found as that is progressed from month to month is my period.
So sorry guys the thirty-five percent of my viewers who are male just like skip the next few minutes we just yet I’m talking period i’m going there because they say that the period once period menstrual cycle it is a indication of your overall health and yes I’ve had period pain and you know it on and off and this and that and everything but time I found my periods are much lighter i feel it just feels so different I feel a lot less pain taking a lot less panadol to get through the first couple of days and there are ya lot lighter I just feel healthier and it’s difficult to explain that i just it just feels so much more it’s like clockwork every month.
Can’t believe I’m talking about this but yeah your period is a huge part of your health and yeah okay moving on from here its other health benefits definitely my hair definitely how I feel every day definitely my energy and I feel amazing what more there is to say that about the health benefits i haven’t felt this good in forever.
I am 35 and I feel like I’m in my twenties i’m keeping up with my little six and eight year old boys I’m running around with him I am not tired through the day I the other day when I haven’t had a good night’s sleep and I have that sort of tired feeling which happened from time to time I forget that lived in this exhausted haze for so long it’s just amazing how I just feel I have energy am i’m staying up late because I’m not exhausted and crashing at seven o’clock i just feel so good so health benefits aside from the weight loss is it’s amazing and yes it is slower and I’m shared a video a few weeks ago about not comparing your weight loss to others so yeah i’m at 10.
4 kilos in three months for some people that might sound like a lot and for other people they might think you should have lost more during that time come on your low-carb lost 10 kilos a month doing something else well you know what good for you whatever works for you works for you and I found that low carb way of life works for me.
amazing doing it i really look at it as a marathon not a sprint I don’t care if it takes me out a year if I lose two kilos a month and in a year I get to my goal weight or thereabouts– doesn’t matter it took me a year to be three months or six months no I’m happy doing it.
I’m the one every day that has to be eating and have to be doing it this way and if it means i’m not counting calories and I’m not counting my macros and it’s much slower but I can maintain it in the long term that is huge thing because I’ve been on so many diets where you count your calories and as soon as you start counting calories or you look forward to going off the diet it all just comes back on and that’s the thing is I don’t look forward to going back and eating normally I’m not tempted to cheat i’m quite happy having my strawberries and cream and I’m not tempted I had no these are the holiday this is the holiday period and every one is tempted by all kinds of things around and I’ve been to my fair share of parties and family gatherings in the last few weeks and I just not tempted i’ll take my own food, i’ll eat before I want to eat, i’ll have conversation i’ll have some veg I had some strawberries it doesn’t affect me what i’m doing i feel so good it’s not about cheating and thinking i’ll put the weight back on for me I don’t want to go back to feeling the way that I was feeling whether I slip into that from eating one wrong food or just spiraling out of control or just know I’m happy eating this way and i’m going to just keep doing this and I thank you all so much for your amazing comments on my channel over the past couple of months as my channel has grown, I just really appreciate every single comment that gets left and sharing my journey with you, knowing that there’s others going through what I’m going through in the slow and steady weight loss and that’s the thing as well is that I have held onto his weight for the better part of my life so I’m not anticipating losing it quickly.
I’m happy i have a kind of routine i lose a kilo or 2 and then it stays the same and I chill for a few weeks a lot of it has to do with my cycle but I’m talking periods anymore today so I’m quite happy doing what I’m doing coasting along and losing with the rate I’m losing it and and finding new fun recipes and i’m sharing with you a new equipment and looking forward to having a play with that egg cooker I got the other day in the next few days.
It’s just opened the whole world and if I haven’t said it i’m just saying again i love this way of eating and that’s kind of my three-month update. Stopped counting calories and macros and kind of doing what I’m doing lost another 2.5 kilos somewhere 10.4 Kilos in total. Measurements coming down, feeling smaller, feeling like a feeling better and all of that so there you go.
