Sooo Ketolicious - Who said Keto wasn't delicious
I’m not a diet person. The idea of sticking to a set plan or rules
for a long period of time makes me wanna not do that But the ketogenic diet was just so intriguing
to me that I had to try it out and it was a fun time that’s for sure! In all of my research I could not find anyone saying one negative
thing about it so this is gonna be the first I guess So yeah Queue the intro! ♫ Chipflake Theme 8-Bit Remix by Tim de Jongh ♫
♪ Original by Lovprod ♪ Okay I’m going to explain this extremely
simplistically there’s tons of resources from ACTUAL scientists
and stuff online so please go look those up if you wanna know
what it’s actually about but very very VERY basically on the Keto diet you eat mostly Fat some Protein and very little to no carbohydrates.
Usually your body gets its energy from the
carbs that you eat but this way you’re cutting those out and making it burn fat for energy instead. The main reason I wanted to try it was because of all the stuff you can eat that is highly unconventional for a diet y’no bacon cream a whole lotta cheese and apparently you could eat as much as you
want and don’t have to go hungry That sounded epic Of course all I heard was “bacon” and “as much as I want” And everything I heard about it was that it was this miracle diet that changed people’s lives gave them more energy, made them fitter, cured their depression, brought their nan back to life now I was overweight at the time as diagnosed by my doctor Y’no I liked to drinka tha beer and eata the ice cream when I got sad And I got sad A LOT! So keto was really intriguing and I decided I would try it out for myself At first it was going pretty alright I was thoroughly enjoying eating lots of sausage
bacon and eggs and at first I was like “wow this is the tastiest diet ever I can’t believe people lose weight on this” After a few days I was not yet experiencing any of the side
effects of ketosis and while reading more about it I had my first realisation: you have to eat a hecc of a lot of fat.
And there’s such a thing as eating too much
protein. And thus began THE FATTENING in which i dumped oil into everything to try to get those fat levels up. And it was disgusting. I dunno but even though I knew it was what
I was supposed to do and that it wasn’t bad for me eating and drinking all of this grease was so gross I would always feel this gross film on my
lips and the inside of my mouth I could not get used to it at all it felt like I’d chugged a litre of pure
oil every time I ate or drank something I soon became acquainted with another problem as I went out to eat with friends. We went to this burger place that tries REALLY
hard to appeal to millennials you eat off of trays & drink pink lemonade out of mason jars and they’re all like “don't forget to give us free advertising by posting your epic burger pics on all the social medias” we went there ‘cause it had a low carb option they had a burger where the buns were replaced
with lettuce It was alright but this was the point where I had my second
realisation: I really like chips.
(a.k.a fries for you non-brits) & burger buns. And potatoes. And rice. And chocolate. And beer. Pretty much all of my favourite foods are
full of carbs. But I still wanted to stick it out for a while eating out was gonna be a bit annoying but I could always cook some nice stuff at
home And while shopping for ingredients for said
nice stuff I had my third realisation: carbs are in a LOT of stuff. Even things you would expect to have none would have a little bit in them. Which meant there were a hecc of a lot of
foods I couldn’t eat a lot more than I expected. So I turned to the internet for some recipes, there I had my fourth realisation: Germany was not really the best country to
be doing this particular diet.
While Keto was becoming a craze in America it was not really known over here so many of the ingredients needed for most
of the recipes either were super expensive or just didn’t
exist. And you can forget about finding keto-friendly
alternative foods in supermarkets. Germany has only just discovered what Vegan
is. So, during one of many very tiresome shopping
experiences constantly checking details and putting stuff back because it had a few too many carbs for the meal I was planning I had my fifth realisation: this is a lot more work than I thought There was so much planning, tracking and calculations involved that doing this diet was just too much work. In the end I was in ketosis for maybe like
1 or 2 days I knew this because I had INCREDIBLE stank
breath which is one of the fun side effects of keto and after that I stopped and ended up losing
exactly 0 weights If I kept it up I probably could’ve lost
weight and I’m still kinda curious about if it
would’ve worked but the moment I started hating it was when I bailed because I’m not about to keep up a lifestyle that I don’t enjoy Since trying keto I’ve lost 10 kilos and am no longer overweight that was just from eating smaller portions and dropping my beer allowance to one or two
on the weekends I had this bad habit of eating to the point
where I was about to explode and die in an extremely
gruesome and bloody fashion I can imagine that keto might be faster but to me being skinny but miserable is just
not worth it.
And I’m lucky enough to not be in a situation where I need to lose a lot of weight immediately so ima enjoy it okay? So yeah Keto wasn’t for me unfortunately but it was a fun experience Sort of And that was my story. I hope you enjoyed this video and until next
time.. Have a nice.. bagel or something idk.
