    Default Been a while:

    I know I've been awful with the updates lately but I have been hitting the gym pretty well.

    Started keto with my wife and 2 of my buddies a week ago.
    This time around I've been going by Thomas DeLauers stuff. More traditional keto meaning higher fat and less protein. Palumbos diet was pretty high protein (about 300g a day for me) so I'll be interested to see the difference this time around.
    I started around 213 or so.
    Today I was 207.6
    Even did a short 16 hour dry fast from Friday night until Saturday afternoon.
    My energy levels have been great and I have had ZERO cravings for anything.
    I need to nail down a good routine as I have been just kind of winging it when I go in. Of course I still pay attention some some details like going heavy (4 reps or so) on my main move and doing 20s on my other moves. Thomas explains why he doesn't like the middle ground of 5-15 or so on keto and it makes sense to me. I'd just like to nail down what movements I do on what days as I like "routine".

    Still been training pretty well.
    Actually had a real solid pressing day earlier this week.
    Great back day on Wednesday when I didn't want to hit the gym at all.
    Wrapped up with a good arm session Thursday.
    No training at all today (Friday) but I am hoping to get legs in tomorrow before the storm hits in the evening. Gym is already closed for Sunday.

    Diet is TIGHT, no cheating at all.
    Blood ketone was 1.3 on the meter this afternoon at work, same as last Friday. I was pretty sure it would be higher but I am ok with it.
    When I used to follow Palumbos stuff I would be looking forward to a nice cheat meal this weekend. Not this time around however. Now I am thinking about if I want to fast tomorrow and for how long. LOL We'll see what happens...

    Well, today begins week 3 for Sarah and I.
    So far so good. Started around 213 or so. 203.2 this morning. Been training pretty well and consistently.
    Did 2 fast so far. First was 16 hours last Saturday and was pretty easy. 2nd was yesterday for 21 hours and was also NOT a problem.
    Got in all my food today and if I wake up not starving, I will shoot for a good 20 hours tomorrow but I'll play it by ear.
    Checked my ketone levels 3 times so far.
    1.3 then .5 then 1.3
    Interesting. I really thing that the .5 was a fluke with the meter. I saw a few reviews that said they weren't super accurate but I take that with a grain of salt. I also did everything exactly the same for the past 2 weeks so no reason for a significant drop in ketone levels.
    Already dropped a hole in my belt as well. Pretty cool.

    I love KETO as much as I hate it. Did it many times over the last 22 years. My opinion is it is a great 4 week diet, after that slip into a low carb quasi KETO plan.
