Hop on my Keto-Train Bariatric Edition

Hop on Sheri’s Keto-Train for a week – Choo Choo!
 
Last week I asked a question on our FaceBook Private Support Group…. JOIN HERE
 
I had GREAT response from our private group. I had over a hundred of our members say “yes, please! I want to join you”. 
 
I asked everybody if they were interested in hopping on my ketogenic train. This train has already left the building but I am leaving nobody behind. You see, I have come to realize that playing the “carb-game” always gets me into trouble.   Lesson learned(again).
 
My “carb-game” looks like this … a few chips, a bite of a sandwich, a few crackers never killed anybody. Sure, that’s what the first few weeks look like. Then my appetite comes back with a vengeance. I start to do my grazing next. I find myself opening and closing the fridge. Grabbing an apple here and a granola bar there! Next thing I know it’s PASTA FOR EVERYBODY (me included).
 
I hopped off the carb-bus and onto the keto-train over a week ago. I got fed up with being constantly hungry. My weight was creeping up and I felt “outta control”. I went to the supermarket and did a keto-haul. I got my favorite cheese, deli meat, olives, veggies, proteins, greek yogurt, cottage cheese, almonds, and dark chocolate.
 
I stopped by the pharmacy and grabbed some “keto-sticks”. These are urine analysis sticks to see if you are spilling ketones. Now, it’s not the best way to measure ketones but I use them only for motivation for the first few weeks. It motivates me to see that I am in ketosis and to see the little sticks go from beige to pink to purple to dark purple. If you don’t know what this is, google “keto-sticks”. You can order them on Amazon also.
 
I am back on track after only a week. I feel better. My weight is better. I am sleeping better and I feel back in control again. Why did I fall off the wagon? I want to say that the pandemic gave me a bad case of the F—It’s. I don’t think I am the only one who hopped on the carb-bus. I saw a lot of my clients on that same bus.
 
Guys, the first few days are kind of rough when you say “adios carbs”… but it gets a whole lot easier from there. Do some gentle exercise. Drink lots of water. Go to be an hour earlier. Sugar is a drug and getting off it can be a bit difficult but so worth it!
 
If you tried a ketogenic lifestyle a few years ago, let me tell you, the keto-world has changed. It is no longer gobs of butter and coconut oil. It is also nothing to do with all those products that have flooded the market with the word “keto” on the “package”. This lifestyle is only REAL FOOD. You are not going to pile your plates with fat. Natural food already contains natural fats. We are focusing on those types of fat.
 
I’ve prepared a beautiful 6-day ketogenic menu for you. This will get you into ketosis, curb your carb cravings, and get you off the sugar-bus.
 
I’ve doubled the menu twice so you are not chasing new meals and ingredients each day. Monday and Tuesday are the same, as is Wednesday and Thursday. We finish off Friday and Saturday with identical menus. If you love the menu plan and you want more meals like this, just let me know.
 
I’ve focused on super simple meals and snacks for you. There is nothing fancy or complicated. There are no “special ingredients” that you need to purchase. This is just REAL FOOD.
 
I’ve provided the macros so you can see how many grams of fat, carbohydrates, protein, and fiber are in each meal and the totals for each day are included. 
 
Remember, net carbs are: total carbs minus the fiber.
 
If you don’t like salmon or tuna, switch it out for chicken or beef. 
 
If you don’t like avocado, switch it out for mayo or a pat of butter.
 
Trust the process. As the days go on, your appetite will subside. You will start to feel better with fewer cravings. Your energy levels will improve.
