Month 2 - Eat Candy, Lose Weight
So its been a little over 60 days since I decided to cut sugar and follow a more ketogenic diet. I was super strict the first 30 days and lost an amazing 23lbs. The second 30 days I took quite a few more liberties - especially with celebrations and events. Needless to say tequila isn’t the best option to keep on track. It was very tasty going down, but then I want chips, salsa, and queso dip…definitely not keto-friendly on the chip.
I wasn’t totally terrible and off the wagon, so to speak. I did a 60 hour fast (not sure I want to do that again working around candy!). I know I was light on fat and heavy on healthy carbs. All things said and done, I did still lose weight - 6 lbs to be exact. It could have been more, but at least it’s heading in the right direction - down! A weight loss of 29lbs in 2 months is hardly worth sneezing at.
The next 30 days will be stressful as we ship some large orders and try to keep up and make more candy for Christmas, but I am committed to making dinners in the crock pot and having healthy snacks at the store to munch on. My 90 days in should show another larger drop.
I know this is a journey and not a race. Life is meant for living and if I deny myself a little treat now and then, I’ll fall off the wagon hard. Luckily, I have a whole selection of healthy keto candy to choose from. My current favorite is the Hemp Brittle with it’s buttery, cinnamon flavor. But I’ll always love the almond toffee and pecan clusters.
