During this week, I tried keto for five days.
What is Keto? Keto is a low-carb, low-sugar “diet.”
You may also fancy:
I say “diet” cautiously though. I did not try keto as a way to lose weight and starve myself. On the contrary, I ate really well. When I say “diet” I mean the way that I eat; what my food intake is.
That being said, keto does have several health benefits such as fighting diabetes, acne, and diseases. Even celebrities, like Halle Berry, are on a ketogenic diet.

5 Days of Keto
Everything I ate was keto friendly. I didn’t feel weird, unlike some diets can make one feel. Read this article for some keto food ideas >>
On day two, I went out to eat with my mom. The restaurant I ate at didn’t have very many ketogenic options, so I did eat some carbs but in consideration.
My mom and I went to Starbucks, a rare treat, and I ordered what I always order, a mocha frappuccino. This is when I had a “revelation,” similar to what Lucie Fink experienced in this video of 5 Days of No Social Media.
I realized that I didn’t want to always have a restricted diet. It’s important to treat your self to special treat every once in a while, while still taking care of your self.
I followed the same mindset I had during day three.
So this is what I came to after this experience: I’m going to keep eating a low carb and sugar diet but still allow myself treats on occasion. This is taking care of my self in my opinion.
Did you enjoy this “digital journal”? Did you/are you going to try any of the challenges I tried in my second chapter of “I Tried Something New”? Do you have any ideas or requests for me to try? Let me know in a comment!
