pain in the keto

I got back some test results the other day from blood work I did over the weekend. My doctor told me that my cholesterol levels were high and advised me to eat more fiber and less saturated fats. The message came a lot like a tome of the inevitable: change.

All the dirty keto in the form of bacon, cheese, sausage, and processed meats came with consequences. Instead of going off keto, I’m replacing some foods. Instead of eggs and bacon for breakfast, I’ll eat hemp hearts, pecans, macadamia nuts, sugar free dark chocolate chunks, unsweetened almond milk, and a splash of heavy cream as a cold keto breakfast.

I’m kind of excited as lately I’ve been adding in a small handful off homemade kettle corn popped w Swerve and olive oil, sprinkled with salt and still remain in ketosis. I do this by substituting the popcorn for a slice of toast I’d otherwise have for breakfast. That being said, I had cold keto cereal and popcorn yesterday and still lost weight. Here is what I ate yesterday:

8:00am: cheese scrambled eggs and mug coffee w heavy cream and swerve

12:30pm: kettle popcorn and three string cheese

3:00pm: cold keto cereal – hemp hearts, pecans, macadamia nuts, sugar free dark chocolate chunks, unsweetened almond milk, and a splash of heavy cream, kettle corn

8:00pm: two Lily’s dark chocolate sugar free peanut butter cups, 2 Lily’s dark chocolate almond bark, 1/2 cup Dr. Pepper Zero

Hello, my name is Hilary, and I'm not exactly sure why, but I often find myself wondering about the many mysteries of life. Throughout my life, I have learned that life is exciting when perceived as infinite refactoring for discovery and enjoyment. That being said, I enjoy learning about the existential crises of others and the creative strategies people use to achieve goals through barriers, challenges, and obstacles.
