I’ve been listing to Dr. Axe’s book “Keto Diet” on Audible. I’ve been learning quite a few things about the Keto Diet obviously, but also how to make sure my body is functioning optimally. Healthy fats and vegetables are great, but the body needs more. Unfortunately, our food, as organic as it may be, may not provide us with adequate quantities. So I planned a trip to my local health food store.
I went to the organic health food store for two things. I actually thought I was going to go in there and buy only two things. How silly! I went with the intention of purchasing liquid stevia. Hey a girl has to have a little sweetness in her life. And I wanted some bone broth. I know how good it is for the body, the added collagen is more than welcome, and I’m going healthy so I might as well dive in 100%. I ended up picking up a complete collagen in powder form as well as some MTC (Medium Chain Trigliceride) Oil. Let me tell you eating high fat isn’t as easy as you may thing. So the MTC oil helps me keep my fat intake high in proportion to my protein intake. Protein gets stored in the body as fat when too much is consumed and that would be counterproductive to what I am trying to achieve here… I want to burn the fat, not create more of it to burn.
I can honestly say that I feel a little more prepared for success on this Keto Diet. At least I feel like I am equipped to support my body and this new lifestyle. I say lifestyle because my intention is to eventually fall int Keto cycling. I want to live a very long and healthy life.
On a different note, I am starting to feel some more energy. It’s been a strange sensation today. It’s almost like the thought of napping or resting pops up in my head (more out of habit rather than need I thing) and then I realize, I don’t really need to. I am feeling energized. I have been crazy thirsty so drinking an astounding amount of water. And you guessed it, spending a great deal of time making bathroom trips. It’s part of the cleansing process and it is something I was expecting. I didn’t quite expect it to be that much. I have to admit, I am looking forward to tomorrow.
