Happy Monday fellow readers and welcome to another publication of Monday Madness! I am ready for my crazy week as usual, and I think it’s going to be a great one. I have a lot of things on my plate this week but plan to tackle it head on.
So last week I did WOBO, which stands for week of beef only. I did great and not once did I go off course. I did a ratio of 1:1.5 meaning for every gram of protein I consumed I consumed 1.5 grams of fat. I did this for the sole purpose of trying to determine at what ration of fat to protein I feel the best. In conclusion I am inconclusive at this point. I felt fine all week but I did not see any amazing results. There were a couple days that I even found myself feeling a little hungry. I also was completely tired of ground beef by the end of the week. Which I found a little odd as I can have steak everyday and never get tired of it. I also did not see any change in the scale. I maintained my weight all week, and I chose not to measure. I was focusing more on how I was feeling and less on what I was removing from my body. That was not an easy task for me but I’m glad I did it.
This week I will be pretty much returning to my normal keto/carnivore diet. I don’t plan on focusing on my ratios but just focusing on my satiation. The new thing this week will be adding in exogenous ketones from pruvit. I am doing this for the purpose of evaluating my mental clarity and mood. I am not doing it for weight loss or so I can have a “cheat” day. I simply want to see what kind of mental support they can provide. I am hoping to see reduced anxiety, less depressive thoughts, and increased focus and clarity. I will update everyone next week on if a week of them is enough to see a change.
I’m really focusing on trying to figure out how to live things I want in life forward. I’m still searching for my why. I am working on building a planning portfolio that will help me focus and figure out these things. I am also continuing to build the positive people I need in my life to help me reach those goals. It literally does take a village, with a constant reminder that it’s up to me to make it happen.
In unrelated keto news I made the decision last week to move forward in home schooling my youngest two children. The more I researched it the more I realized it was the right choice for all of us. The political influence of public school where I live is very detrimental to what my kids are actually learning and I feel they are being set up for failure instead of success. So if any of my readers also home school and you have any pointers or tips please feel free to share them with me.
I hope that each and every one of you reading this have an amazing week. As always feel free to ask questions and share this blog with anyone you feel would benefit. Until Next Time…..Keep Ketoing On!
