WEEK 1 HOW MUCH DID I LOSE? | 7 Days KETO DIET Results and Thoughts

August 5, 2019 3 By William Morgan


hey guys welcome to my channel it’s Iva Scelfo
so yesterday it’s marked seven days
since I went onto a ketogenic diet and I
would like to share with you my opinion
and overall results I feel really good I
did not experience any keto flu yet so
when you are on a ketogenic diet or any
type of low carb diet you have to watch
out for your electrolytes levels which
means you gotta be eating enough sodium
potassium and magnesium so I made sure
I’ve been eating plenty of avocados and
I’ve been also taking my multivitamins
my thirst increased by a lot the first
four to five days but it’s back to
normal right now I’m still drinking a
little more than I used to but not that
excessive like I’ve been the first 4 to
5 days I’ve been intermitting to support
my ketosis I’ve been following the
eating window the 16/8 which means I
would break my fast around one o’clock
every day and make sure or try to not
snack after 9 p.m.
I would not be really strict sometimes
on the weekends we would have a
breakfast but in general during the
weekdays I’m really trying to follow the
16/8 window when my fat macros are low I
would typically have a blood proof
coffee which is a coffee with MCT oil or
coconut oil and the butter or I would
eat some pork rinds just to bump up the
fat and not increase too much protein
I’ve lost about 5 pounds which is
awesome but I know it was mostly water
weight which I’m completely fine with
I’ll keep doing what I’m doing and I
know the results will come I haven’t
been doing any type of exercise the past
last week
besides everyday walking with the dogs
overall I feel very good I am energized
my tummy is much flatter which I’m very
happy about while I was eating pasta and
bread lots of carbs I would always get
bloated and my stomach would be like six
months 7 months pregnant so I really
wake up now and I’m Way flatter which is
awesome and I’m really happy about that
in my intro in Turkey to lifestyle video
I’ve talked about some mild gluten
intolerance I’ve been experiencing I
used to have like a little dry patches
all over my arms here and there and for
years and I would never pay attention to
those until like past month when I
actually did some research and I found
out that it might be some gluten
intolerance so I stopped eating gluten
for a little while and it got better
well I still do have here and there some
little buns but I think it’s too early
to actually see some results as it takes
way longer than a week for the body to
detoxify and actually get rid of all the
gluten so I think I’m gonna see your
results little later on
that’s the cravings go I don’t really
have any particular cravings only like
two days ago I’ve been craving a little
bit something sweet so I made this
amazing keto two ingredients crepes
while you can go watch the video I’m
gonna link it down below it was awesome
so that really hit that spot and I did
them bad I really I really don’t crave
any particular carbs or bread or
anything I made keto bread I made Kea
pancakes so we had a zucchini so I don’t
really crave pasta yet so pretty I’m
doing pretty good in that department as
well so how I typically eat I would try
to keep lunch very simple just throw
together some some stuff I already have
in the fridge from previous night or I
make some eggs just something really
simple and quick and then I would plant
something anew for dinner to experiment
and try some new recipes I love cooking
if you guys follow me on Instagram or
watch my videos
you probably by now figure it out that
cooking is my hobby
I track my macros every day using
chronometer app you think I paid about
five bucks for that but it was well
worth it and I would typically in the
mornings think of what I want to make
for dinner today and in my head just
plan how much I’m gonna eat and what’s
gonna be in that meal and edit roughly
into the chronometer app so I kind of
know where I am at and then I plan my
lunch and snacks around that meal to
actually hit my daily macros as I said
if I’m low on fat that day I would throw
in some avocados or I would make a
bulletproof coffee or eat some pork
rinds or something was really high in
fat but not too much in protein
the only challenge I’ve been having is
really make sure that I don’t go over my
protein like all the meats cheeses there
is protein and lots of stuff I didn’t
even know and it all adds up very
quickly as you know your body if you eat
too much of a protein your body will
treat it as a glucose so it loses the
point and it can kick you out out of
ketosis and we don’t want that so that’s
why I think using some kind of micro
tracker it’s awesome and it helps you
even in the beginning when you don’t
really know how you should be eating so
I definitely recommend using that or
MyFitnessPal that’s for free that’s
awesome one also what I’ve experienced
is that I’m really not that hungry I
don’t really know what is it about eggs
and avocados but if I throw those two
together at lunch time I really have to
force myself to snack at like five
o’clock sometimes I even skip tonight
because I’m just not hungry so I do
definitely believe and I know it’s truth
and now I even tried out and it works
eating higher fat
satisfy for very longer you’re not that
much hungry and you actually eat less of
a food as fat has more calories per gram
than carbohydrates has definitely better
for me intermittent fasting with keto
diet together
well I’m skipping breakfast I don’t
really have to think about five or six
meals a day I eat three times a day so
it’s way easier to plan ahead it’s way
easier to meal prep you don’t really
have to still keep thinking what’s the
next meal and what for lunch routes for
snacks
it’s very easier and I can control
myself way better so for me so far
ketogenic diet or ketogenic lifestyle is
awesome I love it and I’m gonna keep
doing it and I hope you’re gonna keep
