Prior to the pandemic I had a lot of success with the ketogenic diet after having tried nearly every diet under the sun. I had been sick and tired of being sick and tired. So, for just short of a year before the pandemic I adjusted to a ketogenic lifestyle. I lost 60 pounds by April of 2020, BUT then when we had safer at home orders in place and we purchased foods with longer shelf life so that we would make less stops at the grocery store. Then the scale started slowly climbing, and slacks started getting tighter. Mid January 2021 I started to cut carbs again, and I am now in ketosis. I have lost 19 pounds in 10 weeks. Some individuals lose more and in less time, but I approached it cautiously because the first time I had some complications with vitamin deficiencies and medication adjustments that should have been made as my weight decreased, and those issues lasted many months. Most healthy individuals would probably not have to worry about those things, but it’s another reason to consult with your healthcare provider before you begin. To help with understanding and transitioning back to the ketogenic lifestyle I started researching Keto Diet youtube videos, and I compiled 10 Youtube videos that will help you adapt to your ketogenic lifestyle. As well as some brief commentary.

In this video she shares 3 meals she can make in 30 minutes, and they can be prepped ahead of time.

It is important to research any dietary change thoroughly, and get your doctors approval. I had checked with all of my specialists as well as my primary doctor when starting this diet this time. This way if you do have questions or concerns you can turn to them, and they will already be aware of the changes you have made. I am not a doctor nor healthcare worker. I am just an individual with underlying serious medical conditions that has seen a positive benefit in the ketogenic lifestyle. So I am sharing that with you in hopes that you will research and consider the potential of this lifestyle for yourselves.
