Podcast: Episode #012
Subtitle: 100 Days of Keto
Post Date: July 7, 2020
Host: Eric D.
Show Notes: Running solo, Eric D. (@HopSnobbery) launches the first episode of the Riff On podcast in over a year and a half as he looks back at the last 120 or so days of the COVID quarantine and his 100 days of being on the ketogenic (keto) diet.
Mid-March, the schools shut down, cities and states shut down and businesses shut down. Unemployed since mid-March, Eric decided to take advantage of the controlled environment he would be in to try out the low carbohydrate diet of keto.
Eric was familiar with the keto diet from acquaintances in the past, but also because of the YouTube videos of Thomas DeLauer, who himself lost 100 pounds due to the diet. Check out Thomas at www.thomasdelauer.com
Not knowing the extent of the quarantine, Eric D. was reinforced by the instant gratification aspect of keto, which can have a fast weight loss up front, which included 10 lbs in the first week. Fed by grass-fed beef, green vegetables and black coffee, the first 30 days of keto went well with much succcess.
Starting with only 20 minutes of Fitbit recognized activity a day, every single day, Eric focused on walking as fast as possible and trying to get 8,000 steps (four miles) in. After wasting time sleeping in the first month of COVID, about 45 days in, things started to click. On May 27, he started using #8000by8 on Twitter with the goal of getting 8,000 steps in by 8:59.
A 100 days with barely any cheat days, except for a maple creemee https://www.vermont.org/experience/what-is-a-creemee I'm down just about 50 pounds and doing great.
