Not that I like jumping on bandwagons or diet fads, but I had been doing the Ketogenic diet for about 2 years. It wasn’t hard, just boring, and then I stopped losing weight.
So after about 8 months fluctuating the same 6 lbs, I went back to just watching what I ate. Which that, plus stress means I regained any weight I had lost.
My knee has been bothering me for about a month, so I had it checked out. The NP I saw thinks it might be arthritis in my knee (fun, I’m old), but also suggested I go back on Keto. She said I come talk to her when I plateau next time.
I started back today, and I’m already bored. I can eat oatmeal for breakfast every morning without getting sick of it, even the same oatmeal every morning. On the other hand, I am so sick of eggs I don’t want to look at another egg for breakfast.
I’m a picky eater, I don’t like the taste or texture of coconut, so I can’t make some of the ‘no oatmeal’ warm breakfasts because they just don’t appeal to me. I guess I’ll go back to mixing cottage cheese and Greek yogurt with a bit of some type of extract and a few walnuts. I just need either mix it up ahead of time or bring it to work or my husband will eat all of the cottage cheese.
This week I’m stuck with eggs and cheese, and all I want to do is whine about it.
