Is Weight Loss on Ketosis Sustainable?
Real world here, It worked for me.
About 15 years ago I began a different life style. So far I have lost about 70 pounds. It is NOT true that older people can't lose weight ... nor that you can't keep it off.
I ate differently and walked a lot more, I went down 50 pounds … it stayed there … and then gradually drifted up about 15 pounds.
That is when I discovered and fell in love with … high fat, low carb, intermittent fasting. With that the weight came off easily. And there is more to go.
I love eating this way. I feel better. Losing weight is painless. Yes, you have to get used to this. You don’t just jump in and succeed. But once your body is accustomed to using fat for fuel it is easy peasy to go in and out of ketosis.
When you are in you not only are not hungry … you are full of energy and rather happy.
The intermittent fasting goes along with this. I do a bullet proof coffee in the morning, which for the uninitiated is coffee with butter and either coconut oil or MCT OIL. After that I keep the eating to a window … which for me is 11:00 am to about 5:00 pm.
This allows all sorts of neat things to happen. I feel so much better than I did say 25 years ago.
I am not normally in ketosis. But it also isn’t the SAD. It is sugar and grain free. Processed food free. Oodles of veggies and fat. I choose fruit in season, but I don’t lose weight then. And once a week you eat anything you want.
We are going into the holiday season when it is colder. Because fruit is not in season I will probably, unlike most, lose a bit more weight.
