We’re back on the Get Healthy: 31 Day Challenge today and I’m thinking about giving the Standard Keto Diet my best shot this week. I invite you to consider it to – because it’s a good one – for rapid weight loss AND it will just make you feel better in general.
Just one week of this kind of dieting will give you a really good jump start to follow any diet you choose to follow.
If you had asked Grandma for a remedy for excess fat back in the old days – she would have said “Well just eat less, honey child. It’s that simple.” But no – for many of us – it really isn’t that simple. Because each of our bodies reacts differently to different foods and diets.
The Get Healthy: 31 Day Challenge hit a bump in the road late on Thursday and early Friday morning of last week – when – after x-rays by our family doctor – we found that Geezer’s ‘bursitis’ that I had been treating naturally for over a week – was actually a slight fracture.
SO THAT knocked us for a loop – and I missed my Friday post – and I had to take a step back and re-assess my world and our next course of action. But we’ve got that healing now in the works – it always works much faster when you’re treating the right thing. :8) AND I’m back to my 31 day Get Healthy Challenge!
Now the foods and snacks in the charts below – are nothing set in stone – but they’ll give you a general idea. And not there isn’t a lot of food or variety on here – but you’re not going on vacation – you’re going on a simple weight loss project to see how you can do.
Standard Keto Diet
I’d love to give the Keto Diet a whirl. And what the Keto Diet IS – is just very clean eating. It’s very low carbs – very lean/clean protein – and some good fat to keep your cravings down.
The average ratio that I’ve found in my research is that the best version is 75% fat – 20% protein and 5% carbs.
We are to base most of our meals on the following for the best chance of success:
Meat – fish – eggs – butter – nuts – healthy oils – avacados – and low carb veggies.
We are to AVOID – sugars – grains – legumes – rice – potatoes – candy – fruit juices – AND even most fruits.
