  • My 1st week on Keto diet

     

    I was hesitant to try keto diet until my diabetic educator friend recommended and explained its role on weight loss. Keto diet has its share of controversies relating to it’s effectiveness, safety and health benefits. I can’t speak for everyone who tried this, but after one week on keto, I am liking my overall results.

    In layman terms, keto diet uses fat as energy source, when carb intake is lowered. A diet plan which is high in fats, moderate in protein and low in carb is recommended to achieve the results.

    My beginning weight is 74.6 kg. To keep track, (not into much specific measurements) I kept a food diary.
