Keto Step 3: Take Inventory

Keto Step 3: Take Inventory

August 19, 2019 0 By William Morgan


Good morning. As usual, it is Sunday.
I am only down .6. I feel strongly
that that is because I was really off my
water game. Especially towards the end of
the week. Even my lips are a little
chapped. I mean, I was gettin’ in like
60 something, but that’s just not
enough, so I’m fully prepared to up my
water game this week. See what
happens. My weigh-in is from yesterday
because I was celebrating all day
yesterday and there’s no way I was gonna
get on the scale today after that. Cheers.
It was my birthday, but you can find out
more about that in the next video I post.
My vlog. So, anyways, only .6. We don’t
care. It’s in the right direction and
that makes me happy. So, we’ve talked
about how phase one is gettin’ your mind
right. Phase two is doing your
research. So, now your head game is strong,
you’re armed with all the best and most
valuable knowledge, you know what you
should eat, what you shouldn’t eat, you’ve
learned all of the things, and now what
do you do? We’re gonna call it taking
inventory. That means going through your
house and purging all the things you
should not have in your house. Either
because it is not part of keto or
because it’s a trigger. There can be
things that are perfectly okay on keto
that just cause you to lose your mind
and binge on it. We’re trying to break
those sorts of things, yeah? So, maybe
they should kick rocks and not be in the
house. I understand that some of you have
families you live with and that they may
not be on board for this and don’t want
their chocolate or their ice cream or
their bread and chips and donuts and
crap out of the house. So, maybe find a
cupboard or something to designate.
Particular part of your fridge that is
theirs that they can keep their crap in.
And you know don’t open that cupboard.
Don’t go to that part of the fridge.
These do not exist in your world anymore. So, do your best to get rid of your
temptations or the things that are just
not part keto, and then replace them
with the things that are. Also, part of
taking your personal inventory, is
figuring out your support system. Who are the people in your world that will
support you in this, that you can tell
you’re doing this and have some level of
accountability. If there’s no one in your
world that would really support you in this,
how about Facebook groups? Or commenting on YouTube videos that you like? There
are support systems out there. If none of
that makes you comfortable, I would
highly recommend a journal or recording
these kinds of things. When I started
recording any footage, which is usually
turned black and white when I
incorporate some here so that you know, okay, that’s
before I decided to do YouTube…a lot of
that was just for me. To see the changes
in myself, hopefully more easily. To
remind myself of how I may have been
feeling, in the beginning especially, or
at any particular time. I would sometimes
talk about how crappy I felt in the
beginning and really try to articulate
that. So, me version 2.0,
a year from now, who may be struggling,
can go back and watch those and remember how horrible I felt or see that my
headspace was not the same or seeing my face the
difference and how I looked or whatever.
I documented things. So, I recommend
documenting. In particular, to help you
when you’re struggling, but also just
because I find that writing in a journal
or just talking it out to no one is real
cheap therapy. Make sure that you have
the necessary equipment going in that
helps you be successful. Like a food
scale. I find this critical. A digital
food scale, so that you can make sure a
serving is a serving, because what you
have in your head as a serving, likely
not actually a serving. You think a
serving of steak is a serving of steak.
A serving of steak is more like the palm
of your hand. So, I also recommend, if you are going to be making keto coffees,
bulletproof coffee, whatever you want to call them…that you
have a way to blend them. I highly
recommend an immersion blender you know
the stick blenders you could probably
also use that for your coffe, but if
you’re gonna be making your own mayo…the easiest way to do it is with an
immersion blender. Take inventory of your measurements. I cannot stress enough how
important it is to take your
measurements before you start this. Take
photos if you like. Not all of us want to
see all the peaks and valleys of our
bodies, but I took photos. I plan to take
photos every four months, so in two weeks
I will take some progress photos. Likely
not share them, but I’m taking them. But
measurements I take every month and
sometimes in between. You will be shocked
at how quickly they change. Take
inventory of your recipes. Do you have an
idea of what you’re going to be eating?
Do you…have you looked up a lot of
recipes you want to make? Some people
would suggest you don’t even go there
for like a month, and that you keep it as
simple as possible. That is up to you. I
chose to incorporate recipes, so that I
did not get bored with what I was eating.
Maybe you just want to eat bacon and
eggs for breakfast every single day
until you really feel that you are
secure in your choices, but maybe that
makes you want to stab yourself. So, you
want to be armed with recipes, and
choices, and be prepared with an arsenal
of recipes. Next week I will
talk about phase four, and if you do not
want to miss it you should subscribe, and
click the little bell that will send you
a notification when I post videos. Leave
me some comments about things you want to know about and that I can try to
maybe do a Q&A video on. I have already
had people ask me some things and I’ve
been able to direct them to a video, so
mission accomplished.
So, you are dang near ready to start
keto, and if you need help, you let me know.
Are you hunting flies? You better get it. Bro.
I think it’s dead. Yeah, I think you
killed it. Oh. Are you gonna eat it?
