What do I do when I need to feed the sweet tooth?
What do I do when I just got back from the gym and and it is late and I must satisfy my sweet tooth?
I eat strawberries and whip cream obviously!!!!!
Just like most fruits on Keto (and generally all foods on any diet) moderation and portion size is the key to happiness!
1/4 cup of strawberries has about 2-3 grams of net carbs and about 2 grams of sugars.
They are an amazing treat that is necessary to make it in the long run! Food should still be fun and tasty! Just control the portions… Except with the whip cream of course! With less than 1 gram of carbs per serving you can go nuts with that!!!!
Keto will get you far but for a true lifestyle change for the better you have to do one key thing!
Half the battle is just getting active! Getting off of your butt and moving your body! I recently got a fitbit for my birthday and have realized just how little I move working an 8-5 office job.
I was a lifeguard for years, and before that a swimmer and water polo player! I have forgotten that I like to move! I love being excited and energetic, pushing my body past some of its limits!
Today I went to the beach to remind myself! The surf in Laguna was a comfortable 2-4 ft! I got a decent swim in and a little body surf! I am in bed now and I am tired. But it is a clean tired caused by working muscles that have not been worked in a long time! It feels good and I recommend it! Just move and breathe and you are already halfway there!
