I'm no stranger to the battle of the bulge. It's a fight I've struggle with my entire life. I usually keep a handle on it, but last year I underwent a hysterectomy and since then have noticed my body changing.
My old tricks for dropping a few are no longer working and what was an extra ten pounds, has now become an extra twenty.
So, I shocking my system with the Keto Diet. Today is the first day in decades I have not had coffee and it's tough. Really tough.
I have a 9-week eating plan and my goal is all twenty pounds.
Wish me luck. Wish my husband and my co-host luck. Tune in for updates.
The ketogenic diet is a low carb, moderate protein, and high fat diet which puts the body into a metabolic state known as ketosis.
When you're body is in a state of ketosis, the liver produced ketones which become the main energy source for the body.
The ketogenic diet is also referred to as keto (key-toe) diet, low carb diet, and low carb high fat (LCHF).
If you've ever tried it, I'd love to hear from you!
