“After promising myself that I would start the diet in January, I postponed it to Reyes thinking about the roscón. Then I decided to get rid of the leftover nougat and sweets to avoid temptation… Anyway, it was my birthday and I went into the B side of the record and I thought: this is it!”
This is how Marta, a friend of Nococinomas.es, begins her story. She has already completed the first week of the Keto diet and has been kind enough to share her experience with us. This is the Diary of a diet, the Keto diet, without cooking or shopping list.
“Yes, this is as far as I go! So I weighed myself and, seeing Peppa Pig’s face on the scale, I considered several options…
b) Return to a well-known chain of dieticians who prescribe pills for me. And, the truth is, I get bored cooking jack, horse and king. O…
c) Try something new.
So I read about an interesting diet called KETO and, as if by magic, I see on Facebook a page of a site that cooks it and brings it home to me. I don’t have to say that I jumped on the C!
No pills, no shopping and no eating my coconut thinking about what to cook. So I call, I order, and I don’t even wait for Monday. I’m gonna start it on Saturday!
The best thing is that when I talked to them they asked for my honest opinion of their diet. I promised to be honest and critical about what’s not good, even though looking at the website it looked like I was going to get fatter than thin.
DAY 1 KETO DIET, SATURDAY:
Bacon and eggs for breakfast is amazing. It was very very good and very accomplished.
I have to say that I went out and got home at two o’clock in the afternoon as if such a thing. Without a pinch on the belly.
For lunch I had Roquefort sauce and a salad and I was the envy of my children. After that, “paper list”, until five thirty until I’ve had a coffee.
When dinner arrived, which I didn’t even feel like having, I felt heavy and full. Although I had tuna belly for dinner I left more than half, but I didn’t spare a piece of cheese and an ounce of chocolate, which is also included in the diet pack.
DAY 2 KETO DIET, SUNDAY:
Honestly, I’m afraid I’m used to not eating breakfast. And having scrambled eggs and chorizo left me feeling full this morning. So I opted for a walk and a great. No hunger until lunchtime.
Today’s meal was chicken with vegetables and a salad. I loved it and tried a slice of keto bread, which didn’t taste like anything, but the idea of dipping soups in the sauce made me happy and I ate it. For dessert, I had a Greek yogurt with sugar that was a scandal.
I have to say that I feel full and I haven’t eaten anything at all, which is very rare for me, since I usually eat cookies or something sweet all the time.
For dinner I was expecting a moussaka. It’s a luxury and a very good one. And I say goodbye to the day with a glass of wine to celebrate that I’m doing well. Tomorrow I’ll weigh myself and tell you.
DAY 3 KETO DIET, MONDAY:
900 grams less!! I almost had a heart attack. This promises…
Eating scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast before work left me dead, but strong enough to face the day. Because of my work schedule, I moved my lunch up an hour and a half from the weekend. Today was eggplant stuffed with tuna, salad and yogurt.
In the middle of the afternoon I had a bit of a headache. I don’t know whether it’s from work or from eating early. So I had a little cheese and pepperoni and a little hand of the saint. Better than an ibuprofen 600, right?
For dinner, turkey breast with shrimp and mushroom sauce. A real treat! And I’m done with my ounce of chocolate.
DAY 4 KETO DIET, TUESDAY: ANOTHER 200 GRAMS LESS. I’M GOING FOR 1 KILO 100 GRAMS!
Today I was thinking of skipping breakfast, but my husband encouraged me and warmed up the scrambled eggs with mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. It’s incredible not to feel like eating, I’ll take half! It’s very good, but too early for me. I arrived at the meal wanting to try the chicken chilindrón, without forgiving my salad and yogurt. Everything in sufficient quantity to be satisfied.
Besides, I didn’t have a headache today and I arrived at dinner without taking anything at all. It’s not because I’m trying to be brave, but because I feel full and satisfied. Last week I was snacking on half a pack of cookies or whatever I could find in the pantry. I’ll give you that.
Around nine o’clock I prepared my zucchini with meat and this time I did correct them with salt. I didn’t feel like anything else, although I didn’t take my walk today. I hope the scale won’t punish me tomorrow…
DAY 5 KETO DIET, WEDNESDAY: 200 GRAMS LESS 1 KILO 300 GRAMS!
Today I had eggs and bacon for breakfast and tea again. It was raining and it reminded me of my London days.
The truth is that I feel lighter and in good spirits and I am looking forward to taking my tupperware to work! My buddies freak out about my meals and don’t believe it’s a diet. I heat, I open, I serve and I don’t share, of course.
A Pedro Ximénez sirloin steak with salad and yogurt was my lunch today to celebrate that it’s the middle of the week. I got home at six and had a coffee. With nothing at all, really good!
I just had dinner. It’s nine o’clock. A mushroom, pea and ham planter and a Netflix series in the living room with nothing to look forward to.
DAY 6 KETO DIET, THURSDAY: 300 GRAMS LESS. I’M ALREADY DOWN BY 1 KILO 600 GRAMS! INCREDIBLE.
Even the “eggs” of so many eggs, but I’m going to fatten them up.
I feel lighter in my clothes, it’s not a drag…
Today I was pleasantly surprised by some stuffed peppers in Rioja sauce at lunch. And, for a change, my salad. I added cheese and turkey and finished it off with my white Greek yogurt. I didn’t need anything else until dinner.
When I got home, I went for a half hour walk (which was very cold) and that was it!
I end the day with a hake with ratatouille and a little bit of cheese. Everything is exquisite. (It’s not a ruckus.) These people aren’t going to give me a Thermomix, but they’re stewing in scandal… Now to the salon to see Manisfest on Antena 3, which I also recommend…
DAY 7 KETO DIET, FRIDAY: 200 GRAMS LESS 1 KILO AND 800 GRAMS LESS IN TOTAL.
Today was my last day on the diet. I watched my snowfall with my last three tuppers and I was sad…
I celebrate it with eggs and bacon that when you heat and mix are great. And ready to end the week. On Fridays my buddies usually eat out and I don’t even envy them. I’ve got a veal à la jardiniere with salad and yoghurt. I’ve got a date with them and I’ve got a Coke Zero. Happy.
When I got home I celebrated the weekend with a good coffee with milk and arrived at dinner to conclude my diet with some green beans sautéed with ham. Of course I served myself some wine and a little bit of cheese. Good family movie and I have to weigh myself tomorrow!
SATURDAY: 100 GRAMS MORE.
My loss in one week with this diet has been 1 kilo 900 grams. I have almost lost 2 kilos in one week with the Keto diet.
I have to thank you and recommend it 100%. Repeat? A YES with CAPITAL LETTERS.
It has been like living in your mother’s house again with the plate ahead of you at lunchtime and without any worries. Anyway, when you look at the quality of the food I have eaten, and the offer they have is not to think about it.
