This 20 pounds down looks very different from the “20 lbs lost” with keto.
Don’t get me wrong now! I was definitely on the keto train and I was very serious. I did have some moments with a few girlfriends of mine at work where we tested out “lazy keto” but we still followed most of the rules. 🤣 And this was back in 2016 .
I wanted to lose weight for this wedding. So I was like “why not give keto a try”. My girlfriends and I came up with a work challenge to stay on track. I completely overhauled my entire kitchen. We were recipe swapping and everything we were on a roll.💪🏽
6 months and 20 lbs later and yeah…..I didn’t really see a huge difference.🤷🏽♀️
There was change for sure but my energy levels weren’t so hot. I was completely bored of the food. And getting into and staying in ketosis was insane. I swear I never drank so many versions of bullet proof coffee.
The second time I tried was recently before surgery in 2019. Myself and another group of girlfriends attempted keto. I think that time I had only lost 10 lbs and 20 bucks on top of it🤣
I have had my share of keto ventures. But, I must say getting VSG has been by far the most worthy journey I’ve embarked on.
