I finally hit a breaking point in life...I've never been this big in my life, and it's horrifying to me. My wife tells me I just look like a "beefy" guy and didn't believe my weight when I told her.
My plan was/is this. I began Keto after seeing a trainer for a consultation, he set me up with a simple and clean plan, some good supplements I should get, a cardio routine, and we start strength training next week. I started the diet a bit earlier than the strength training because I wanted to get a head start, regardless of the horrendous cold I had, I did it anyways.
So this is how it's gone so far for me...Between binging on pizza and beer the night before day 1, I've completely stuck to my guns.
Day 1 was OK for about half the day, before I started getting headaches and feeling awful. I powered through it and kept going. My meals consisted of eggs and spinach, a protein bar and macadamia nuts, and two meals of 90/10 grass fed burger wrapped up in romaine leaves.
Day 2 I felt HORRIBLE from about an hour after waking up and eating breakfast. At this point, my supplements hadn't arrived, I was really dealing with the Keto-flu at this point.
Day 3 was perfect until about 3 PM. My supplements were here, and I took them all and my electrolyte concentration. I added a couple condiments into my diet, avocado mayo and sugar free ketchup.
I've dropped an obscene amount of water weight in the last 3 days, and know that I can just keep powering through. I've been consuming between 128 oz and 200 oz of fluids per day with electrolytes in some drinks and some caffeine to help with the headaches if they were to arise. I'm currently using the tracker sheet I found on the sidebar, and I'm pretty excited to use it...it's pretty fun too!
TLDR; Day 3 was awesome, decent energy in the evening...taking this way more serious than I need to (blood tests, doctors visits, and a strict 10 food diet)
