June 25, 2016 - Keto Diet Week 2

2 weeks are up already!! I must say I got pretty tired of only drinking coffee for breakfast. I know I once only had protein shakes but since I began making breakfast I really like sitting down to a hot meal. I did have a couple of days that I was just starving by lunch! A few days I did have to have an afternoon snack to get me through to dinner, but most of the time I was not too hungry until the family would ask, "What's for dinner and when will it be ready?"

One thing I can say about Bulletproof coffee is that it is pretty filling. When you consider 2 cups is nearly 600 calories it better be!! When I drink my coffee with butter again, I will leave out the heavy whipping cream and just go with Almond or Coconut milk. I just didn't care for the HWC at all.

This week is suppose to be the first week of Intermittent Fasting, but I have decided not to go that route. Considering my hypothyroidism and HRT I think it might cause my hormones to go wacky and I just cannot deal with that again. I am going to do the 1st week eating plan again this week and for my 4th week I will do the Bulletproof coffee again. Just having the Bulletproof coffee for breakfast and then not eating until noon or later, I was experiencing really cold spells by 10 am. And that is very unusual for me. So I probably won't lose as much weight as others would with IF, but I'm happy with a 1 to 2 pound weight loss a week.

I wasn't going to bother with Ketostix to measure if I was in Ketosis or not, but I broke down and purchase some. I have been in mid-range all week which is good. I am staying hydrated and eating the right ratio.

I figure my eating plan will be this way for life. And the way I plan on doing it is by cycling one week of cooked whole breakfast items and one week of the butter coffee. I believe this will work. I will stick to eating lunch and dinner as normal on the week of butter coffee. This is doable for me and not as restricted.

I did add in some new vegetables this week. I added asparagus, zucchini and cauliflower to the mix. Broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, onions, and spinach were getting kinda old. I made a pork fried cauliflower rice combo last night. Cauliflower as rice was actually pretty darn good. My next venture will be cauliflower pizza crust.

* Friday was a rough day....even though I did not eat any bread, pasta, or cereal like I was craving, I did over do it in the calories. I have to keep my calorie average around 1500 to lose. I think I also need to up my protein slightly this week.
