6 Month Weight Loss Transformation – Low Carb Keto Diet Success

6 Month Weight Loss Transformation – Low Carb Keto Diet Success

July 24, 2019 61 By William Morgan


Hello and welcome back to my Channel
today I have my six-month weight loss
transformation update to share with you.
It’s been six months, a half a year that
I’ve been on the low carb keto diet and
what a transformation it’s been. I can’t
believe how quickly the time has gone but
then this just feels natural to me, it’s
just my life, it’s just the way that I
eat. I just I love it so much and
today I’m gonna share all my journey
with you the ups downs how the past
month has gone and all of that. So, yeah another
month has sped by it’s been an
interesting month because there have been a
couple of experiments happening first of
which if you watched my video last month
I was going to experiment with playing
around with having less dairy. So, instead
of having dairy with breakfast lunch
dinner and then snacks and in between
and more and dairy all the time I cut
back and I had some days with no dairy
and I had some days where I just tried a
little bit so I could really see how I
felt after different types of dairy. It
was a very interesting experiment
I discovered butter agrees with me, you
know i love my butter, so butter i can
i’m keeping in my diet, awesome! Little
bits of cheese agree with me, too much
cheese and i get a sore tummy. So it’s
been good experimenting. Brie and other
soft cheeses agrees with me. Cream, sour
cream and mascarpone, every time I
have I don’t feel so great afterwards so
eliminating it and playing around and
good i’m going to give myself a break
from those kinds of dairy for a while and
then like reintroduce and just play
around again i’m not saying this as a
prescriptive measure you shouldn’t go
out and copy what i’m doing but i’m just
sharing what’s works with me and i’m
experimenting myself and as always i
share what happened and how my
experiments work so going forward yes
i’ll be including dairy in my diet and
playing around having a little bit more
little bit less going dairy free days
just experimenting as i feel. Butter
is always included and i’m also taking
supplements, the supplement I take
with electrolytes every day also has
calcium in it so I’m not really
concerned about having no calcium. if you
are to cut out dairy go and definitely
chat with your doctor,
health professional if you’re thinking
of cutting out dairy and look into
supplementation to make sure you don’t
miss out on calcium or any other
important elements that your body needs
so that was experiment number two number
one getting ahead of myself experiment
number two was playing around was not
weighing myself, well attempting to not
weigh myself which went really well for
two weeks and at the two week mark I was
just too curious because of all the
dairy cutting out and I wanted to see
what happens so I stepped on the scale
after two weeks and I lost a kilo, 2
pounds which I was really happy with and
because in the past I’ve been losing
about a kilo a month so a kilo in two
weeks I was very happy with and then I
kind of just vowed to weigh myself once
a week not daily and so then in the past
past few days actually there’s
been a further experiment which I
might touch on today and then go into
in further detail in future videos
because obviously cutting out so much
dairy and I felt I’ve needed more and I
played around it adding more fat but that
hasn’t really helped, just it hasn’t done too
much so I’ve been playing around with
adding a smidge more carbs. Now my carbs
up to that point, I don’t actually count my
macros every day the days that i do i’m
usually between 18 and 25 grams of carbs
which is keto low-carb super low carb
and I dunno I’ve just felt in me that I
want to increase that a lot, not going
high carb, anything under 100
grams of carbs is technically considered
low carb, keto usually under the 50 gram
mark so I’d say I am somewhere between
25 and 50 grams the last couple of
days and the first day when I increased
my carbs the next morning I stepped on
the scale overnight I lost point 9 yep
just under a kilo about
two pounds overnight by just increasing
my carbs and I didn’t go crazy I didn’t
crack open a loaf of bread I just had a
bit more vegetables and when I have
my strawberries for a snack instead of I
instead of having four strawberries
I went crazy and had 8 strawberries so
I’m just the carbs i had through the day I
just upped it so when I had my veg I put
a bit more veg on my plate or
instead of usually I’ve been having
one veg with each meal I had two veg
with each meal for that for it’s just
been a couple of days so we very early
into the experiment but I’m going to be
seeing how I feel and how the scale move
I’m again not going to try and weigh
myself daily but I’m going to weigh
myself more frequently to see how this
experiment is going with increasing
towards the 50 gram mark again this
isn’t a do what I do this is listen to
your body I felt there was something
missing it’s difficult to explain I felt
there was something missing and I
thought well I am gonna play around with
my carbs and if over the next few days
having fiftyish grams of carbs instead of
25 I’ve put on weight I’ll think about
it but losing and losing and then the
next day stay in the same it kind of
makes me think maybe I need to up my
carbs for a bit and still be keto still
be low carbs but just play around with
my numbers it’s an experiment I’ve
always said that this diet is awesome I
love this way of eating I gravitate
towards low-carb high-fat foods now and
I don’t see that changing for a time to
come but I’m always open to
experimenting and listen to my body and
doing what I feel for this diet to
be sustainable in the long term and it’s
going to continue changing and I thank
you for joining me on this journey and
just yes make sure you subscribe what
you’re not the end of the video!
Yeah so, going forward
I am going to just keep experimenting
with my carbs I might film a video more
documenting how I am increasing my carbs
leave a comment let me know if you’re
curious about increasing carbs on
Keto and still losing weight but again
I’m not reaching for pizza, pasta, bread
nothing like that it’s more having more
veggies and I think I might even try a
few more fruits and be a bit crazy as
well and it also i’ve also been thinking
of upping my carbs and being a little
bit more risky because I’m going to
Japan in a couple of weeks. I know i talk
about it every month but it’s it’s yeah
it’s coming in a few weeks I’m going to
be jetting off to Japan and I am going
to try my utmost to keep low carb high
fat but when I go to the market and I
see beautiful exotic
fruit I want to know I can have fruit
and vegetables and feel okay so I’m
happy kind of upping my limit just to be
able to enjoy that I’m not going to be
having noodles and dumplings and all
that I’ve actually got no desire for it
so I’m going to be going there keeping
low carb high fat documenting it all
sharing the journey with you but I
just want to know that if I go and eat a
bit of meat and it maybe it’s marinating
something which is higher carb I’m not
going to feel awful because I’m kind of
slowly edging towards high carbs I hope
that makes sense it’s what I’m doing
again I’m just sharing the journey as I
go really honest and raw and open
unedited me. I thought i’d share
Interesting incident which happened
through the month which really made me
realize how I how much weight I’ve
lost. I was on a train with my kids to the
city and usually, it’s a bit embarrassing,
usually on train seat I have a little
bit of spillage, you know I’ve got quite
a bottom and so usually when I sit on
the train there’s my seat and I take
over a little bit of my neighbors seat
it’s a bit embarrassing but you know and
so I caught a train with the boysto the city
usually a combat by placing one of the
children next to me so yeah they’re taking
up the seat and like no one really has
to notice yeah anyway and what happened
was we were on the way to the city and the
boys decide they want to sit next to
each other so there’s two and two seats
the boys sat next to each other
and I was by myself, didn’t really think
about anything and then a man came and
sat next to me and initially I was mortified
because I thought oh my gosh I’m taking
up half a seat and then I realized I
wasn’t he was in his seat and I was in
my seat and somehow my bottom was
contained to one seat and I it was such
an awesome feeling an awesome moment
almost wanted to tap him on he shoulder
and say hey look see! Own seat! Yeah look at me!
but I didn’t!I had a little party in my
brain instead. It just it felt
awesome it felt amazing and it just
reassured what I’m doing and just I was
it was one of those like happy little
moments which I just know that I really
I’m just so thankful for the weight I’ve
lost and yeh look forward to seeing
where my journey takes me in the future
so overall what did I actually lose
in six months my total weight loss for
six months is 15.4 kilos which is about
a little over 33 pounds in six months
which I am over the moon about the last
month I lost two ish kilos about four
pounds. I have to keep converting. And I
feel awesome i feel so much energy I’m
35 I feel like I have more energy than I
had in my 30s and my 20s I feel awesome
