How I Feel on Day Four of Keto
I still feel a little slow and sluggish today. Although, my head feels better than it did yesterday.
I didn’t miss sugar in my coffee quite so much this morning so I’ll take that as a sign that I’m through the worst of my sugar withdrawal. Hopefully . . .
I ate a lot today. Definitely overshot all of my macros. I’m happy to report, though, that I don’t feel bloated or too full.
The best part about a grain-free, low carb, high fat diet has to be the freedom from difficult digestion. Even if I never lost a single pound that would make it worth doing.
