Week 2 of the Keto Diet is finished!
Week 1 was posted here with information on the Diet itself.
This week I tried to be a little more strict and lowered my calories and protein, upped my fat and tried to lower my carbs from 35 to 30-35.
Goal was 120g of protein and fat and 30-35g of carbs all at 1700 calories.
Here's how I did.
Beginning of Diet Weight: 152.2
End of week 1 Weight: 149.6
117g of protein, 36g of net carbs, 107g of fat
107g of protein, 25g of net carbs, 112g of fat
130g of protein, 33g of net carbs, 117g of fat
118g of protein, 35g of net carbs, 119g of fat
124g of protein, 35g of net carbs, 99g of fat
122g of protein, 34g of net carbs, 102g of fat
111g of protein, 36g of carb, 90g of fat
Overall the carb cravings have completely subsided. Sometimes I want a little treat or snack, but I find reaching for cheese and almonds curbs the cravings without issue. I always read before if you're craving sweets, eat protein and it seems to be working for now.
Final weight: 150.6
YES, I did 'gain' a pound this week, but I'm still down 1.6 pounds in 2 weeks. At this point I know it's not all just water weight and I HAVE actually lost weight. Plus losing .5-1 lb a week is healthy, so I'm extremely happy with my weight loss thus far.
My friend who has completed her nutrition classes has me on a new 'diet' (more of a lifestyle change) and has seriously upped my protein and given me a few more carbs so I won't be posting about this anymore, but will update with pics/weight loss every couple months or so.
