KETO DIET SERIES EP8:  5 STEPS TO A TRIAL “HALF ASS KETO DIET”

KETO DIET SERIES EP8: 5 STEPS TO A TRIAL “HALF ASS KETO DIET”

AGG proposes using a trial version of Keto for those that are curious but daunted by jumping into a full time very high fat/very low carb diet change.

5 STEPS TO THIS TRIAL “THE HALF ASS KETO DIET”:
TRYING “HALF ASS” KETO FIRST – 5 STEPS

1) EAT TWO DECENT SIZE MEALS
a) First big meal of day make it a normal meal with carbs, etc
b) 2nd big meal/last big meal make it a Ketogenic compliant meal
High Fat, moderate proteins, VLC – less than 15 grams of net carbs

2) DO THIS EXPERIMENT FOR 7 TO 10 DAYS
You gotta give it a shot. I mean, one day you might have been less hydrated or had less quality in your sleep. For a number of reasons, you should try it for at least a week to gather enough data to compare afterwards

3) TRACK YOUR CALORIES & MACROS
And track your macros and calories on something like MFP but with no real gain or loss goals in mind – just maintain your normal eating schedule and number of meals if possible. But have 2 main meals as mentioned in Step 1 with the first being carb levels normal and 2nd meal being VLC

4) WEIGH YOURSELF DAILY
Counter to popular advice, I believe in weighing myself daily or at least every other day. Reason? If you weigh yourself the traditionally prescribed amount – 1 time weekly, there can be far too much variance in weight in 7 days between 2 measurements. You could be less hyrdrated the last 2 days of that week compared to the other days. There are just many reasons that weighing only 1 time weekly can throw off your enthusiasm. The risk, they say, is that you become “obsessed” with your weight if done daily. Try to keep an “scientific” mind about it, though, rather than worrying about the numbers. Observe the number, if you weigh 3 lbs more today than yesterday what could’ve caused that? Did you eat more carbs yesterday? Did you have a longer cardio workout yesterday? Were you on your feet most of one of those days. Did you accidentally eat normal carbs last night’s meal and the night before you didn’t? Are you weighing under same circumstances – post workout, post bowel movement, fasted (pre-first meal of day).

5) KEEP LIFESTYLE AS CONSISTENT AS POSSIBLE OUTSIDE OF NUTRITION
Keep your exercise routine/normal.
Example: don’t start increasing cardio more during this trial period!
Try to keep your number of hours of sleep the same as usual.
Don’t start new medications.
Don’t suddenly start drinking less water than normal.
Etc.

The purpose of these 5 steps for the trial version of Keto should allow a few things:
1) Comparison of satiety level between these two types of meals
2) An overall moderate reduction in carbs intake, and
3) Allow you to review the simple contrast/comparison between how you felt with your normal
nutrition the weeks before and the week of this trial

FINALLY:
This should allow you to decide if a Ketogenic diet may work for you (always check with your doctor, of course).
Or, do you think this experimental approach aka “The Half Ass Keto Diet” is more suitable? Either way, you would be reducing carbs/sugar intake.

WHY DID I CHOOSE KETO
Some reasons I chose it was simply:
1) I was not getting the body fat reduction results I wanted – the last stubborn 15 lbs were not coming off
2) I am a carb addict. I have done one version of The Half Ass Keto diet intermittenty for years. Another way of describing it, is carb cycling, or phasing carbs in and out of meals.
3) Before Keto, I followed a Flex Diet. It works!…to an extent. Eventually, I start to gain weight back and/or I cannot get into burning the last 15 stubborn lbs.
4) Side benefits – satiety level is more constant/reliable with Keto – no matter if I want to maintain or lose weight, satiety is out of the equation 90% of the time because high fat, moderate protein, VLC diet provides this.

As always with any nutritional plan change or diet, check with your doctor for any medical conditions
before trying a very low carb diet such as the ketogenic diet.
Keep carbs in check whether on Keto diet or not!
