Having done Keto for almost a year, I must caution you that it really is non-sustainable. it eventually does raise creatinine levels as your kidneys and liver take the beating. Yup it's creat to chow down on all that yumminess even it means no French fries or pizza. I agree with the comments from everyone here. It should become a lifestyle change and yes, muscle weighs more than fat.50wyldeman wrote: ↑February 18th, 2021, 4:11 pmI probably should have addressed this a bit in the initial post , my apologies.
I am currently doing keto (70/20/5 ) and aggressively using IF to my advantage, I generally am eating in a 6~4 hour window then fasting the rest of the time, I am using ACV in the fasted times and am doing all intended "physical work" with purpose in the fasted state for now.
My health has dictated my life in a very bad way and I am over it , I Went on a very strict elimination diets 7 weeks afgo and although I am free to re introduce certain things I have chosen to only reintro eggs so I can get to my macro I desire just for Breakfast I know this is not flawless but for now it is serving me well in that regard ( weight loss). At my peak ( ~24 mos ago ) i was 385 using Keto I got to 300.1 and then gloriously self destructed. I have spent the last two years in fare worsening health and finally , as noted went on the advice of a new physician to do the elimination diet. It was ALARMING as someone who has a high pain tolerance AND was still in enough pain daily to impact my life I was absolutely stunned at the improvements in pain and vigor. Pain is still a very real part of my day BUT it is so much better now I feel empowered to do the level best I can for myself and My wife and kids . At the risk of being over confident , I do believe this time the adjustments will remain a part of my life going forward.
I also realize that in time a proper and religious effort on caloric intake and meal planning will be very needed I am however changing so many things in such a tight window that I am just riding this early phase out until I feel like I have plateaued weight loss wise and then will adjust again with a Dietitian .
I learned the hard lesson that you cannot out work bad input ( food ) .
I have been watching a lot of Thomas DeLauer and am appreciating the way he explains the reasoning behind the concepts he presents. I also have been watching Training Tall, Darkhorse and I think C2 Australia. I watch youtube more than tv these days............
To all that have taken the time to read this and comment or offer advice THANK YOU, if I could have achieved this alone I would have , but this community may have been a huge missing link for my success the support is amazing .
I tend to write "stream of consciousness" so I hope this all made some sense to you guys. Be well. I think if it is agreeable I will update here a bit for now to keep me excited and in the mode of learning
Bonnie (spousus maxims) and me committed. We took a front and side pic on day 1 pf rowing. We weigh in every Sunday, and we track our intake at a caloric deficiency of -500 cals for our age and weight category. It is starting to pay off after 33 days of rowing, but I am not fooling myself or Bonnie. We might see some more dramatic results after six months when comparing the pictures. Oh yes, almost forgot, every end-of-month is a new pic as well.
