APRIL 2014. I felt trapped inside a body decades older than I was, or felt.
6 months later, I ‘accidentally started’ on Ketogenics (at the time, not many people had even heard of it). And my life changed course forever.
The difference between those who succeed and those who fail, is simply this. PERSISTENCE: The stubbornness & determination that makes one refuse to give in or give up.
Yesterday, someone 3 days into their keto journey (from my local Keto Group) asked, “What if I am still hungry after I’ve eaten up all my daily macros allowance?”
My answer was: You can’t eat more than your macros max-cap for as long as you want to go into, & stay in ketosis. Each time you snack, you stop your body from burning into your fat stores.
If you KNOW you’ve already eaten, but still feel hungry, it’s because your stomach needs to retrain itself to shrink down to what is a ‘smaller, healthy, capacity’. It’s been stretched out through years & years of excessive eating. Your brain is also panicking because it views digging into fat stores as a danger signal. It doesn’t want to lose its ‘fat stash’. Don’t listen to you brain. It’s being paranoid.
Drink water if you know you have had a meal with enough good fats. It will take a week or two or three before your body gets used to the new smaller amount of food you feed it.” THEN some dude came along and declared,”If you’re hungry, eat. If you need to snack, eat cheesesticks or something. Don’t starve yourself.” 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🙄🙄🙄🙄I COMA-EYE-ROLLED FOR 10 FULL MINUTES.
Now, I don’t even want to correct or argue with anyone, any more.
I say my piece and end with, “It’s YOUR body. Do what you think is best for yourself.”
Best disclaimer in the world + it shuts down argumentative know-it-all types, FAST.
Truly in ketogenics, you can’t WIN, unless you first understand the rules in the game.
Keto is one of the things that has an incredibly low ‘Rule Bending-Point’.
You’re either IN ketosis, or you’re OUT. There is no in-between.
