Literally Just a List of Food I Haven’t Eaten in a Month

Bread, in all its glorious forms.
French fries.
Mashed potatoes.
Baked potatoes.
Scalloped potatoes.
Sweet potatoes.
Ice cream.
Chocolate chip cookies.
All other (less worthy) desserts.
All fruit, except berries.
Fried food.
Snow cones.
Gum, mints, and candy.
Granola bars.

We started the Keto diet on June 21, meaning it has been exactly one month since we’ve eaten any of those things. And you know what? I’ve survived. I didn’t think I would, but I have. This is sort of a humble-brag (sorry), but I really just want to be able to come back to this post and remember that I actually did this. I’m not saying I want to do Keto forever, but what a wake-up call it has been! God has been really gracious to me, because I was truly expecting Keto to be the worst, hardest thing ever…and it honestly has not been half as bad as I thought it would be. I’ll be thankful forever that we decided to do this. I am more disciplined about food than I have ever been in my life, even when I was doing the DietBet. I’m praying earnestly that God gives me the ability to maintain this new discipline, especially if and when we allow ourselves to start eating some of those things again. But in the meantime, while we’re still on Keto, I’ll eat all the bacon, cheese, butter, and cream I want and enjoy it with all my heart. ;)

Would anyone be interested in hearing more about our decision to do this or taking look at my recipes and meal plans? Let me know in the comments, and I might do a follow-up post!

    I’d love to see you recipes!! How long do you feel like it took you to “get over” sugar cravings? I think that would be the hardest for me…

      Awesome!! I’ll definitely share some, Katie. I don’t know that I ever necessarily “got over” sugar cravings, but fat bombs and Keto-friendly desserts have helped a LOT with that! We’ve been able to eat *sweet* things that don’t actually have sugar in them, and that’s kind of kept us afloat. lol
