There. I said it. Stalls are extremely frustrating. You may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a while. That’s because nothing has been happening. I’ve been stuck in the 230s for a while now. The measurements have not moved that much either. I’m sure there are people who would give up at this point. So why do I keep going? Well, the Keto lifestyle is actually not that hard to do so I might as well keep going.
I need to refocus my energy to see if I need to fix something. I started reading Maria Emmerich’s The 30-Day Ketogenic Cleanse. I’m working on increasing my recipe database. I find it difficult to get more fat into my diet, and I think that’s where me struggle is. I’m working on that. I do find that when I do add more fat, I eat less because I am satisfied a lot sooner. If I don’t get enough fat, I’m usually looking for more to eat. And of course, starting my menstrual cycle doesn’t help because of the hormones – that tends to make me eat more. But no carbs. Whew!
I also went back to listening to some more podcasts. This week I listened to 2KetoDudes, specifically episode 122, “Sarah Hallberg Reverses Diabetes“. This is my main goal, reversing my diabetes. Sometimes when I’m feeling beaten, listening to podcasts really helps get me motivated. It’s helpful to know I’m not alone in the struggle.
Another podcast I like listening to is The Keto Hacking MD. This week I listened to episode 27, “Dave Korunsky from Heads Up Health on Tracking Your Biohacking“. In this episode they talked about keeping track of your overall health so that way you would have a comprehensive collection of health data to bring to your doctor. I find that I really could use this considering that I have to switch doctors. My doctor, who I absolutely loved, no longer lives in my area. She was the most supportive doctor I have ever had. I went and visited Heads Up Health and signed up for their 30-day trial. I like how it connects to My Fitness Pal, but it doesn’t yet connect to my Samsung Gear watch. I put in a request, so we’ll see.
