Keto Vegetarian: Week 2

Week 2 –
Weight lost: 3.6 pounds (Total: 9.6 pounds)
Inches lost (waist): 1/4″ (Total: 1.0″)
Inches lost (neck): 1/4″ (Total: 1/4″)

Week 2 went well! Keto makes intermittent fasting really easy because I don’t get hungry. My problem now is that I’m not eating enough calories every day! I basically need to add a snack in somewhere, because most days I’m falling about 300 calories short, and 1200-1300 is way too low for me (at least at this weight). I’m too full to eat anything more with dinner, so it’s going to have to be a snack somewhere in between meals when I’m not full anymore.

I’ve had several more days over 95% sleep quality, so that continues to improve. I’m up to 17 squats per day if I break them up 12 in the morning, 5 at night. I’ll keep adding them at night to build up.

Here are some of my meals. I’m still getting most of my recipes from Keto Connect and Headbanger’s Kitchen. They’ve all been winners so far!

Yep… I made the Keto Connect Chicago-style pizza again… cheese only this time. OK fine, I made it 3 times this week.

Last week’s leftover taco stuff became taco salad. This week, I made enough cheese shells for all of the meals. 🙂
