That Fat Boy Slims – The Ketogenic Diet – Day 19
Well. Today was abysmal in the morning. Only three alarms went off. Two of mine at 05:00 and 06:00. Then my wife’s at 07:30. I must’ve fallen back asleep before re-setting my alarm. I start work at 08:45. It’s a twenty minute walk. Needless to say, I didn’t fuck about this morning.
So I did the kids packed lunches, my lunch for work was already sorted last night and in the fridge – chicken curry with cauliflower rice. I remembered to pack my almonds today too. I weighed, as I usually do, and I’ve had no loss or gain. I can live with that. I had my bulletproof coffee again – same concoction as yesterday but I’m off on the weekend so may try something different on Saturday and Sunday.
I decided to change my approach with magnesium and had half a pill this morning and the other half before bed tonight. My stomach seemed a lot more settled but I don’t know if it was the magnesium in the first place. I’m going to need to monitor this for a few more days to see if there is any correlation but I suspect this may be the better way to do it.
I managed to eat all of my lunch today – I didn’t feel full but I didn’t feel hungry either. And I snacked on a few almonds throughout the afternoon. When I got home I didn’t eat anything at all. I got through the day with no espressos or energy drinks and, aside from a slight case of sleepiness after lunch, my energy levels have been pretty decent. I cannot believe the change in my mood, temperament and overall physical and mental health. I think I’ve found what I’ve been needing.
As far as my macros go, today wasn’t as good a day as the last few but the devil carbs are still low and the rest I think I can cope with. I have a feeling I won’t have lost any weight again tomorrow so I’m expecting to remain 15st 8lbs. We’ll see.
Additional supplements such as Apple Cider Vinegar, Coconut Oil etc. we get from Holland & Barett.
