Step away from the cream cheese and listen up. Let me first share that I can speak on this because I have been there. When I started my keto journey I did all the keto things and I failed miserably.
A typical day of Pinterest keto looked like this:
Breakfast: Bulletproof coffee with sf creamer
Lunch: Lunchmeat, cream cheese, pickle roll-up (3-4 of them)
Dinner: Crack chicken and cauliflower mash
Sure this sounds great, right? So here is, the things I was getting my body into ketosis but in the process of doing this I was eating well under 1300 calories a day and the bulk of those calories that I was eating were from processed foods with very little actual nutrients.
We are conditioned to believe that the less we eat the better and that is one big FUCKING lie. As women, we not only need to worry about calories but we need to worry about our hormones and metabolism and by undereating we are under regulating both of those things. If we are not eating enough food and under regulating those two things then our body will not burn fat in the way that we want it to.
So how do we eat keto, burn fat, and support our hormones and metabolism a the same time?
One word for you... Simplify! I know you probably like, "WTF that is what I came here for"! Yes, it is so keep listening. Here is what I want you to do. I want you to go a full two weeks without having highly processed foods. To help I am going to show you an easy day meal plan below that is ACTUALLY KETO. 👇🏼
A typical day of Actual keto looked like this:
Breakfast: 2 Eggs, 2 tbs organic butter, 2 pieces of bacon
Lunch: Cobb Salad (lettuce, hard-boiled eggs, chicken, shredded cheese, avocado, sf dressing)
Dinner: Seared steak or a naked burger with a side of avocado and green beans
Snack: Organic greek yogurt, berries, and some chopped pecans I hope this helps to get you started or get you over the plateau you are experiencing. Please feel free to follow me on IG where I share what I eat on a daily basis as a busy mom, wife, and business owner.
