Finding a good diet to pursue is never easy, sticking to it needs another extra mile. I am now in my late 20’s and my metabolism starts to slow down. I can no longer wolf down tons of pizza, chocolate bars, fast food, chips, cookies, ice cream and milk shakes without thinking twice. I know that it will definitely have an impact to my weight.
When Metabolism Hits You
According to Healthline:
Research shows that your metabolism tends to slow down with age.
Being less active, losing muscle mass and the aging of your internal components all contribute to a sluggish metabolism.
I have tried to be a veggie eater, I tried to lessen my fast food intake, trying to get rid of sweets, fatty and processed foods but it only pushes me to crave for more. Yes, I’m that weak. But of course I would not want to continue with this depressing type of eating habits that I have. Good thing that I have learned about Ketogenic diet.
Time for Change
It is important to know what you are getting in to specially when it will affect your health and well being. It is important to do research and even consult a doctor if you feel necessary for any diet plan that you would like to pursue. As defined by WebMD:
“Ketogenic” is a term for a low-carb diet (like the Atkins diet). The idea is for you to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates. You cut back most on the carbs that are easy to digest, like sugar, soda, pastries, and white bread.
Going on a diet will require patience, consistency, and discipline. It will never be an easy journey but this time I know that I am up for it. Aside from family members who boosts my confidence, I also am inspired to some of my friends who are already trying out this diet. Seeing the effects on them makes me want to go for it more and more. My main goal of course would be to lose weight which will definitely contribute to good health and boost my self confidence.
Another thing that I am really excited about ketogenic diet is that I won’t have to stay away from good foods that I love to eat like steak, bacon, chicken, avocado, etc. On a more positive note it’s like I found a pot of gold through shortcutketo.com which contains honest and informative cookbook reviews for ketogenic recipes.
