Previously known as "caloriesandcoffee.com." I am on a quest to change my life by losing weight and becoming healthy and fit. My plan involves counting calories with My Fitness Pal, low carb and IIFYM and working out. I'm not striving for thin, I'm striving for fit!

Today begins Day 1 of my year of healthy eating using keto. I posted all the important information yesterday so this is going to be a pretty short post but I did want to clarify a few things.
While I am upping my net carbs some (on the days that I want to add in some fruit/sweeter veggies) I still plan to keep it under 50 total grams of carbs which, I believe, will allow me to keep calling it "keto" rather than "low carb" so that's what I'm going with.
I'm also still not sure on how my headaches and fibro flares will behave with added fruit so I'm going to keep a close eye on that and drop back to lower carb amounts if I see if negatively affecting my pain levels. I think the next couple of weeks will be experimental weeks to see what kind of healthy carbs and sugars I can and can't physically handle but it's still staying within official keto levels. I'll just have to try it out and find out as I go.
I am really happy the scale actually didn't go up since last week (and surprised to be honest) but I'll take it!
Today is starting off well with healthy food and good choices and I'm just going to take it one day at a time. This is a long journey and not a race and that's how I'm going to treat it!
And now, studying, studying and then some more studying!
