Cheat Days and Keto
I've lost 32 pounds over the last 8 weeks, so I was feeling pretty good about my Keto diet, but my progress is really starting to slow over the last couple weeks. What's interesting about this is that I've been more diligent than ever over those same two weeks, keeping it under 20g of carbs for 13 of the last 14 days, more often than not, under 10g.
I do know that the pounds in the beginning shed quicker and it gets harder and harder as you close in on your optimum weight, but I still can't help but wonder, is there a chance my metabolism has adjusted to this ultra-low-carb diet and is easing back on firing up the fat-burning furnace?
Have any of my fellow Cronometer fans seen their progress on the Keto diet start to plateau and try working in a cheat day just to keep the metabolism from getting too complacent?
