BLOG #64: #Ketosis

by Tim Trueheart

Ketosis is the key to being a lean mean bad futhamucking machine… I’ll explain.

    I want to be a BAMF just as much as the next guy (honestly probably waaay more). But that shit is difficult and I’ve tried and failed many times. BUT, I have recently succeeded and it was because of the ketogenic diet… Today is my first day of going back on the ketogenic diet...

    I just ran 4 miles then I ate a “reasonably” ketotic lunch. It was 3 chicken wings, and then a steak quesadilla. The tortilla shell isn't ketotic but as long as I keep my carbs below 50 grams a day I can get into and maintain ketosis… Which is something I’m trying to get back into.


    I know soda isn’t healthy but I never stopped drinking Diet Coke, and I still lost over 30 pounds this year... Diet Coke is one of my guilty pleasures, and I allowed it because yeah, it may have some weird chemicals that make your balls shrink but it doesn’t have any calories either, and I’m trying to lose weight so whatever...


Contrarily I love kombucha… My favorite flavor is GTS Synergy Raspberry Chia, I like it because of the seeds, even though it feels like snotty boogers when you drink it.


    Back to ketosis… I love fruit, which are carbs, which is the enemy of ketosis... So I have to keep my fruit intake very low to reach, and maintain ketosis. Some things that make ketosis difficult for me are candy and alcohol... I freaking love candy, especially twizzlers, and anything gummy… And I like to drink, now I am not a big drinker because I actually have Asian flush like a mug, but I do drink enough alcohol to kick myself out of ketosis. My secret is Michelob Ultra. I can drink one or two of those and stay keto.


    The ketogenic diet gave me a foundation to build my life around which helped me lose a lot of body fat and improve literally every aspect of my life. If you have any questions about ketosis message me on twitter or my website and we’ll rap about it.
