No one is perfect... I certainly am not.
I live the Keto lifestyle and don’t really think much about eating any other way, because I feel so great all of the time.
However... there have been times when I have veered off the Keto path... I am not going to say “I’ve blew it” because that sounds more like back in the bad old days when I was on some ‘diet,’ and I would go off of the ‘plan’ and then my next thought was “well I’ve really blown it now, so I may as well pig out... I failed, and now I am going to really punish myself”.
There are times when being in ketosis is not feasible. I always tell people, at least try to be as low carb as possible in any given situation. From a health perspective, this is so important, we do not want to spike our insulin levels over and over. From a Keto perspective, it’s a lot easier to get back into ketosis if we are at least eating low carb.
I believe Keto is about eating whole foods, but there are times, though when you are not ‘perfect’ but want to jump back into ketosis quickly. You can go on a ‘fat fast,’ do ‘intermittent fasting’ and just jump back into Keto and wait for your body to get back into fat burning mode.
You can also use BHBs (beta-hydroxybutyrate) to help get you into ketosis fast. There is nothing wrong with getting a little help, but we don’t want to purposely eat high carb and then take BHBs as a way to do Keto ongoing... that is not a health plan. Eat whole foods, get your good fats in, and use BHBs (US | Canada) when needed or as an energy boost before your workouts.
