Today was a difficult day for me. Time, I think, to put a little more time into doing some more research into this Keto diet. As I said, I've been winging it since starting. I believe it may be time to research it so that I do it right.
Today, I was tired most of the day and I think it's due to not having enough fuel to stoke the engine. In other words, I'm not eating enough fat in proportion to the protein I'm eating. From what I can tell, eating too muchprotein — which is, in effect, what I've been doing — can cause my body to create sugar, a process called. . . something or other.
What I've been reading and watching in various videos is starting to make sense. Since the body (for reasons I don't understand) prefers sugar over fat for its energy source, if I don't eat enough fat to keep my body in ketosis, it will turn the protein to sugar and everything goes kerflooey.
Tomorrow, I'm going to spend the day learning more about the Keto diet. And I'm going to go to the gym to do a light workout. Nothing too rigorous. I just don't like the idea of sitting all day.
So, a little bump in the road but nothing I can't handle. It's time to educate myself a bit more and improve the effectiveness of this diet. Anyone who is on the Keto diet is welcome to put their two cents in.
