30 Days on the Ketogenic diet – but not a strict ketogenic diet. If you havent read – my aim with my diet experiment to find a lifestyle diet. I was not in proper ketosis for 30 days, I was in and out of ketosis. Some days I was out of ketosis for days. If I went out for dinner with loved ones I did eat carbs, I did drink(more than usual actually) and I did have a hangover pizza now and again. So you can say I wasnt truly on the ketogenic diet, but I do not believe most people can stick to a strict ketogenic diet. Unless they don’t drink – I think that’s the major obstacle to the ketogenic diet. Or doing a competition prep.
I loved being on this diet. And I would recommend for anyone to do it. As I learned a lot about my eating habits. There was pretty much no sugar cravings and I learned the proper feeling of feeling full. I can tend to overeat time to time. Usually on carbs. Or even just a normal meal. But when I was eating keto, I didn’t do it once! Even if I had a carb meal during the weekend. And in all honesty I havent over-eaten since. I now know when my body say its enough. And I that have always been one of my biggest issues with food.
The reason for this is as simple – could you ever think to over eat on just fats? Say for instance cheese, until you feel bloated? It’s not the easiest.
Below I’ve posted a before and after photo. Unorganised of me I took the photos at different times of the day, and that clearly have a different effect on definition and the overall quality of the pictures. I might look a bit more muscular on the before photo. As this is taken in daylight. But I got fairly lean during the 30 days. Even though it might not show as good on the photos. Lesson learned for next time.
Difficulty: Very easy to follow. Although meal prepping is adviced as very hard to find keto friendly food for lunch etc.

Overall feeling: Always satisfied and no cravings.
Training comments: Got stronger, leaner and increased a bit of muscle mass.
Weight loss: Ca. 2 kg – however it looked like more in the mirror, but I think my muscle mass increased a bit.
