Day 11: Finding Rhythm

Like any other habit change, going Keto has its challenges. The first one being is that I now eat differently than the rest of my family who happen to live under the same roof and for whom I am responsible for feeding every meal. That’s three meals a day I am already preparing for other people. Now, I am cooking extra to feed myself. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving the cooking Keto part. And I’ve been feeding my family long enough to know what I can whip up quickly that everyone will love. But let’s face it, any change requires some adaptation time.

Today, I feel like I am finding a rhythm with my Keto diet. I have chosen a meal schedule that works for me and allows me to go back to intermittent fasting. Here’s what it looks like:

  • 5 AM – Wake up and relax in bed
  • 6 AM – Get up, wake the kids up and go prepare lunches. Drink lots of water with a pinch of salt in it.
  • 7:30 AM – Get the kids out the door and leave for work with tea in hand
  • 9 AM – Drink my Keto Coffee (coffee with heavy cream and 1tbsp of MCT Oil) and have breakfast
  • 12:30 PM – Eat lunch
  • 4 PM – Eat dinner

I am usually done dinner by 4:30 pm and I usually won’t eat anything until 16 hours later. One thing about the Keto diet that is absolutely fascinating me is that I am simply not hungry. Often, I will not be hungry enough for lunch and will go right till dinner. I refuse to force myself to eat when my body is clearly saying it does not want to eat. And having a later lunch means one of two thing: either I will have a later dinner and will not fast for 16 hours that day (If that is the case, I still try to fast for at least 12 hours) or I will skip dinner all together in order to fast at least 16 hours but this throws the schedule for the next day way off.

All in all, I am happy that I seem to have fallen into a rhythm. I home this will make things easier as I progress through this first month on the Ketogenic diet.
