I've been eating keto for the last two months. For those of you who are unfamiliar with a ketogenic diet, it is a high-fat, low-carb diet with moderate protein. Essentially, no carbs, sugars or starches. Yes, this means no bread, pasta, fruit or potatoes.
But I mean, what's life without bread? So why go keto, right?
Well, let me tell you. This diet tastes good and makes you feel good. The audacity. I can't believe thousands of people swear by this diet. Why would you ever, in a million years, want to go keto?!
1. You're going to get to eat delicious food...
2. ...And you'll lose weight doing it.
3. Food will keep you fuller longer.
4. You'll actually save money.
5. You'll have more energy.
Being on the keto diet is like being a car that never runs out of gas. What a drag, right?
6. You'll actually pay attention to what you're putting into your body.
No one wants to think about what they're actually eating, but you have to when you're keto. I will never be able to look at Swiss Rolls the same way.
7. It will naturally heal your body.
8. You will better the lives of people around you.
In case you didn't pick up on it by now: this entire article is sarcasm. Choosing to try the keto diet is one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Sure, I miss bread, but there are so many recipes that try to emulate those familiar, carb-heavy foods that I don't even miss them.
I still get to eat amazing food and lose weight and my hormones are balancing naturally.
If you're considering keto, do your research and ease yourself into it. Nothing tastes as good as keto feels.
