Hello! Former keto gal here. I loved keto, I felt great and lost weight. However I really don’t want to live that way for the rest of my life. It’s too much cooking, too expensive and just inconvenient for me.
I’m back on this calorie counting lower carb train but I feel fat. When I was on keto everyday I woke up with no bloat whatsoever. Today and the past couple of days I just feel bloated. Even though everyday I am under my calories and generally eating healthy. I’m also drinking lots of water and have regular digestion.
I’m scared that I will not be able to Continue with this woe and will have to go back to keto. I don’t want to. I’m happy being lower carb and still being able to count calories and track things and enjoy foods without feeling like I’m doing something wrong.
Why do I feel fat and bloated? I just want results. I’m exercising and I sync everything with my Fitbit. I weigh in Sunday morning but I’m afraid to. I didn’t lose a crazy amount on keto but I always felt great and I felt like my body was changing. I’d like to lose about 60 pounds. I don’t have a time frame although the sooner the better of course lol
I just want to find a way of eating and stick with it. I thought I found that with keto but I just can’t get myself back to it and I dread all the cooking and lack of fiber and vitamin deficiencies that go along with it. I just want to feel better and look better and reach my goal while developing a healthy relationship with food.
Has anyone had success while feeling the way I feel from time to time? Or came back from keto and enjoyed not being on it?
I apologize for the negthy post and thank you for reading if you’ve made it this far!
