Costco is cheap as Keto Progress #2

A few more days and it will be my first whole month of keto and intermittent fasting. It’s been an interesting journey none the less so far and I’m real happy about the results. When I started keto I was 75kg (165lb). 

Today I’m weighing in at 62kg (136lb), as far as I see it if you have the discipline to count those calories and live life in a deficit that’s almost a 30 pound loss… Now that I think about it that almost seem unhealthy, and yet I feel incredible.

This is absolute proof keto is definitely doing it’s job.

How is the diet going?

Changing up the foods I eat was absolutely key, switching over to scrambled eggs made eating the eggs easy as can be as I can maul those down so fast with Franks red hot sauce I love it!

The heavy whip cream was an ABSOLUTE success, I thought it was going to taste gross but when mixed with the scoop of whey holy crap it’s actually delicious o.0. I mean like the mixture tastes like icecream and only has 2 carbs!

As far as ramping up my caloric consumption I’m able to hit 2k calories now without feeling sick and will be amping it up over the next few days till I’m at the full 2750.

 Below are the results of my blood test, I will update & edit this page with my nurse friends analyses soon as I have no clue what this stuff means xD

Things are progressing and I’ll be starting to build up my muscle basis real fast I’m super excited to see progress and even more hyped to feel it. I’m well on my way to optimal health now all that is left is to stick to it!Overall the first week back into the gym marks a great starting point, I can’t wait to start racking up weights and seeing my body transform again. Thanks for reading I’ll see you in a few days with the next report!
