Keto on the Cheap: Day 1

I couldn’t have asked for a better first day back on plan.  I know that my pre-planning helped, and a positive attitude didn’t hurt either.

My starting weight for this phase of my journey was 259.4lb.  This morning, I was down 2.8lb and feeling great.

So what did my first day look like? Around 12:45, I ate my “breakfast” — scrambled eggs with bacon, mushrooms, spinach, pico de gallo, and cheese.  Supper happened around 8:00pm. I had a burger salad (salad greens, pico de gallo, cheese, ranch dressing, and a chopped bacon cheeseburger) and called it a day.

According to cronometer, my macros were:

  • Calories: 1605 kcal
  • Fat: 135.3g
  • Carbs: 17.7g
  • Fiber: 4g
  • Protein: 79.2g

I did feel the tiniest bit munchy at bedtime, but I really think that had more to do with the fact that other family members were snacking.  A just refilled my water and went to bed.

I did have a bit of trouble sleeping last night, but I attribute that more to the pain I was dealing with last night.  I experience random episodes of pain and swelling in various muscles and joints, and that happens regardless of how I eat.  I can say for certain though that those episodes decrease when I’m eating a less inflammatory diet.

I’ll report on day two tomorrow!
