My 14-Day Keto Experiment – Keto Diet Day Two
Today marks day two on keto. Before I tell you how I felt and what I ate today, make sure you’ve read all about my day one.
Read about my Keto Diet Day One experience. In that article I talk about why I decided to try keto for two weeks (and only two weeks) and what I hope to gain from my keto experiment.
If you’ve already read about day one, let’s jump into my keto diet day two log.

Keto Weight Loss Tracker

Today’s weight – 180.6

Wow, I can’t believe I’ve already lost weight. Stepping on the scale this morning and seeing the lower number was a nice surprise.
Of course, it’s mostly water weight. In fact, I’m losing a lot of water, which happens on the keto diet. As your body uses up glycogen stores, which contain a lot of water, you urinate more. Bye-bye water retention. I won’t miss ya!

How I Feel on Day Two of Keto
I feel good today. Honestly, I’m worried about getting the dreaded keto flu, but so far I feel pretty normal.
I still miss coconut sugar in my coffee terribly. It’s just not the same experience. And yet, I had a second cup of coffee today for the first time in years. I’ve already decided that the first thing I’ll have when I’m done with this two weeks of keto is a cup of coffee with coconut sugar.
Yep, I’m a sugar addict. Hopefully by the end of these two weeks I’ll feel differently about coconut sugar in my coffee.
