Going Keto All You Wanted to Know and More
This is going to be a multipurpose thread. I was going to start it sooner. I had gained 25 pounds after the Arnold Classic during a truly nasty bulk. I let myself go further than I should have. I've lost 20 lbs over the last 6 weeks. As I said, I wish I'd started this log sooner and documented with photos etc. I will do that here and will run a mini log on my diet as well as provide tons of useful information, recipes etc to make keto dieting easy. I will also show you there there are benefits over and above fat loss
Patrick Arnold's Blog contains a recent entry about ketosis and I've been intrigued by what it revealed. Not only is the ketogenic diet a great fat loss tool. It is a a cancer fighter too. This among numerous other health and mental benefits. I've been doing much studying on ketosis since then and have decided to make this the go to thread for all things keto. It will be informational...most likely entertaining and will contain recipes and tips to help keep you on the diet and achieving your goals.
Prior Keto Experience
I am not a stranger to Keto dieting. Anyone that has read my UR-Spray log on AM has seen these pics
Nope the Truth wasn't always sporting a six pack, I used to sport a keg. This is how I looked before I discovered keto. I was a Chubby child. Then when I hit puberty and grew 4 inches in height in one summer. I grew into my weight and never had any trouble until I reached my 30's and got depressed and attempted to eat myself out of it. I was eating a case of tortilla chips a week along side a cafeteria size can of nacho cheese sauce ala Costco. Never mind the 64 oz plus of Coke Classic I consumed on a daily basis.
I tipped the scales at 300+ and had a 40" waist. I tried low fat diets to no avail. I couldn't lose a pound until my boss put me onto the Atkins diet. I lost 100lbs in 2 months. My cholesterol which was 360 prior to the diet plummeted and my hdl's greatly improved. All while drinking heavy cream, eating 2 dozen eggs a day and pounds of ground beef smothered in cheddar bacon and mayo..yes it defies common knowledge...'cuz common knowledge is brainwashing propaganda.
Do I have your interest? Want to lose fat and never be hungry? Want to consume large quantities of meat and cheese, and BACON! without concern. Want to improve your cholesterol while eating all the things that the uninitiated will tell you will raise it?
I will post my current diet and supplement regimen tomorrow as well as some relevant research on ketosis. Stay tuned the Truth is back
