You know when you just crave comfort food? Like an ooey gooey grilled cheese sandwich with some soup? This week was one of those weeks. And I was so grateful when a friend of mine posted their 90 second keto friendly bread. Because… a low carb grilled cheese sandwich with bacon was all I could think about! And it so hit the spot!
These past few weeks I’ve been paying attention to what my body is asking for. Sometimes I find myself craving certain things. Vegetables, water, etc. And instead of ignoring that feeling, I’m starting to try and take notice of what my body is telling me.
I’ve also been trying to stick to my macros as closely as possible. I calculated the calories, fat, protein and carbs I should be eating based on my current stats by using this keto calculator. And I was quite surprised that the calories recommended for me were right at what I was eating when trying to hit the 80/15/5 ratio I set for myself in MyFitnessPal.
By sticking to my ratios, really thinking about what I’m eating and why, and planning ahead daily, I’ve been able to complete this fourth week on my LCHF journey with a 15 pound weight loss. 4 weeks and 15 pounds lighter. I have to say that it feels really good. I know it’s not going to come off as fast as I continue but it’s a great starting point!
