If you have been following my weight loss journey for a while, you probably think I fell off the face of the earth unless you follow me on Instagram. I was blogging regularly about my weight loss for awhile along with doing a youtube vlog. What I was doing wasn’t working out, and I had to figure out what the best plan was for me. Nutrisystem didn’t work. Strict calories wasn’t working. 100% clean eating was not working. I felt like before I shouted from the roof tops what my next plan of action was that I wanted to test the waters first. I ordered some books, researched some Keto friendly companies like Paleovalley, and I decided to start without telling anyone. I kinda hinted on my instagram, but I didn’t really announce anything.
It has been about two weeks, and the Ketogentic Diet is awesome! In the past, I have really hated the word diet when it has come to things I have tried in the past because I felt like they would be more of a lifestyle change than a diet. I consider the Ketogentic way of eating a diet because I can definitely not see myself eating this way for the rest of my life. It has only been two weeks, so maybe I will change my mind. I have noticed the pounds dropping off easily, and my hunger pains are almost non existent. I ate today at 10am, and my next meal was at 5:30pm. It was ridiculous. It is pretty much unheard of for me, and it has been this way since a few days after I started. Usually when this happens, it means your body is in Ketosis which is a good thing when you are doing this diet. For those of you haven’t followed me, I was starved as a child and so when I get hunger pains I tend to binge. It is probably something that shouldn’t effect me anymore, but it does, and I have noticed on Keto, I never feel hungry, so I have not binged since I started.
So where does Paleovalley fit into all of this?
Paleovalley beef sticks are 100% grass fed, raised in the U.S.A by family farmers focused on using rotational grazing practices and creating lush, green pastures free of chemicals and pesticides. They never use antibiotics, steroids, or hormones! While doing Keto, I really try to eat clean. I consider myself about 90% clean eating right now, but I would like to get closer to 95%. The whole point of a keto diet is a fat, protein and carb ratio. I try to stay under 25 carbs a day and Paleovalley Beef Sticks help me to reach that goal because they are 0 carbs.
If you are doing Paleo, Keto, watching your carbs, or you just like beef sticks I highly recommend you give Paleovalley beef sticks a try. I put one in my husband’s lunch without saying anything, and he came home saying, “Where did those come from? They were so good!” Guess I will be ordering more in the future for the hubby’s lunches as well as my snacks!
