Challenge – Week 5 Update

How’s everybody doing?  Outside of our normal issues listed in previous posts we are doing great and feel better in general.  The meals have been pretty good, not all amazing – but I’m still trying a bunch of different foods that I’m not used to eating.

Speaking of food;  Half the time I don’t even feel like eating in the middle of the day.  I had gone back in week 5 and attempted to eat three squares a day.  I found that I really just wanted to skip lunch altogether.  So that’s what we will be doing henceforth.

Challenge – Week 4 Update

Well, week 4 has come and gone.  This was a week where we ate every single bit of our calories in a single meal.  That kinda sucked actually, and here is why.  I take some medications that require food and with eating once a day (at dinner time), I had to change the time for some of those medications.  I had usually taken them in the morning so had a full half day change in when they were taken.  In the end, I felt like crap most of the day without those morning medications.

Challenge – Week 3 Update 2


There comes a point in this adventure where we need to talk about the affects the Keto Diet is having on our body and mind.

Let me address the physical first.  With a really Bad Back, it can be difficult to stand in the kitchen long enough to prepare some of these meals.  Mine is particularly finicky about standing in one area for too long and it starts to spasm and seize if I don’t take breaks.  So I really need to manage the cooking process in segments in order to keep from really hurting myself.

Challenge – Week 3 Update

Hello everyone, I know it’s been a week since my last post; please don’t hold it against me.  Either way, I decided a weekly update for Weeks 3 and 4 would be best.  The reason?  Well in week 3 we drink our Ketoproof Coffee every morning (double dose), and then we skip lunch and don’t eat again until dinner.  In week 4, well … we only eat dinner.  So that’s why the more sparse updates for those weeks.

One week from today will be the next measurements update.  I’m looking forward to them my own self.

Challenge – Day 13

Looks like we survived Day 13.  We did have a little hunger in the evening but nothing really troubling for our resistance.

We continue with the Ketoproof Coffee for breakfast, the Omnivore Burger (that we had leftover) w/ Simple Spinach Salad and for dinner we had Bacon Mozzarella Meatballs w/ Roasted Pecan Green Beans.

Challenge – Day 12

This was a pretty good day.  We seem to have hit our stride with the Ketoproof Coffee and don’t have any issues with the flavor profile we’ve created.  So drinking it is becoming just another part of the routine.

We did cook some almond buns for our sliders which ended up being super thin and difficult to slice in half, but we did it.  🙂
