I’m a little nervous, but the excitement is outweighing that emotion. My last post was about my commitment to the Deeper State Keto 14-day meal plan, and while I liked it, I felt it wasn’t for me. Since then, I’ve gone back to eating my regular Keto fare and still feel just as great; however, I want something to push me. I’ve gotten better at testing my mental and physical strength at the gym, but I feel like I need to add a different element to that. The only thing left is to commit to a stricter diet.
I was fortunate enough to meet Matt and Megha from KetoConnect during KetoCon a while back, and they were some of the few people who learned about my life’s goals. They were kind enough to give me their support through the Deeper State Keto program, and with that said, today is day one. Alongside the DSK program, I’ll be restarting Jeff Cavaliere’s AX-1 routine. This program has really helped me break some plateaus with my weight training and cardio, and I’m looking forward to the results I’ll see from that and my diet.
For the next 90 days, I’ll be following a fairly strict set of macros that suits my own personal numbers and goals. I’ve seen and read so many success stories with this program so I thought, “Why not me?” Though, tough days come with success and limiting yourself when it comes to food isn’t the easiest or “natural” thing to do. Most of us enjoy eating because we don’t always see it as fuel but as an indulgence. I’ve told myself that the time will pass, regardless of what I’m doing with life. I’ll be buckling down, keeping daily food logs, weigh-ins, and of course, trying to make sure my food still looks great on my Instagram account. My goal is to have weekly blogs to keep myself accountable. In addition to the stand blog post will be my “Recipe of the Week.” I plan to stick to OMAD with fat fasting in the morning, but I’ll highlight the best meal that met most of my daily macros.
I’m looking forward to the challenge that this protocol will eventually bring but the end result should be worth it.
