I’m currently majoring in Dietetics and I’m a life time health fanatic and foodie. Moral of the story, I like to change up my diet to see what will happen to my body and how I’ll feel.
Lately, I’ve been feeling really slow and sluggish. I just don’t seem to feel as good and burn out quickly. (I could use a nap most days)
I’ve been more and more interested in a Ketogenic Diet (low carbs, high fat). When I say low, I mean low. Like under 30 grams a day low. That means no bread or cappuccino or bagels or cake or donuts. I make it sound like I’m eating dessert a lot but, trust me, I don’t. I just like bread and bagels but I’m willing to change things up in order to feel better!
My first meal was 1 Duck Egg, 2 Egg Whites, Some Shredded Cheese, Avocado, Spinach, and Baby Peppers all cooked in some Olive Oil. To be honest, I feel pretty good right now. I’m not exactly full but I’m not hungry either. I feel like I should be eating a piece of toast with this breakfast but that’s not gonna happen.
I need to find a way to get my calorie intake up though because I’m planning my day and at the most I’ll only be eating around 900 calories. Not enough for a body to live off of! Hmm, I’ll have to figure it out. Maybe I’ll play around with it and stay under 40 grams of Carbs so that I can sneak in a snack or a piece of toast of a banana even!
I’m going to keep this up for around 2 weeks, unless I feel like garbage, and then we’ll see what happens. I’ll either keep it up or I’ll re-modify it to fit my lifestyle more!
