I lost 20 pounds in the last year. It was a sad fact that I had to face when I realized I was a fat guy. I weighed 232 lbs and I was only 5’8″. To be honest I still am only 5’8″ but at least I am no longer 232 lbs.
About a year ago I had the above revelation and I knew it was time to stop slipping down this slippery slope! So I researched, and mostly just talked to my cousin who is a guru of health and fitness (Julia Blake on Instagram), and decided to try this thing called the Keto Diet. Essentially it is a low carb ( more like NO carb), medium protein, high fat diet.
“High fat?” You might ask. “How can anyone lose fat on a high fat diet???”
The answer is very carefully and with a lot of discipline!
Now, as you can see from the above picture, I was not very disciplined and to be honest, I still am not the most disciplined person you have ever met. The 20+ pounds I lost in the last year mostly happened in about 2 months of sheer willpower. The rest of the year I fluctuated +/- 5 to 10 pounds or so because I lost the discipline for consistency.
Anyway, I am back in the Keto diet and am trying to maintain that discipline. This website will help catologue my journey to become a healthy individual once again. I hope it either entertains, encourages and/or inspires you to do the same.
I have many people I love in this world. I come from a family of short round people with heart problems on both sides. It scares me to be honest. I know how easy it is to slip! This is my journey to better myself, not only to increase my quality of life, but to be the best version of myself so that I can give myself completely to those in my life!
Thanks for letting me ramble on!! I will include daily logs and recipes. I will add some of the science of Keto and why it works. Keep in touch and let’s get healthy together!!!
I want to fit into a speedo again. And dammit, I want to look good in it!
