***Disclosure: I received complimentary samples of Active-PK to try during my Keto journey. All opinions are 100% honest and have not been influenced in any way.***
Those who know me are probably painfully aware that for the past few months, I have been attempting to do "Sloppy Keto." You may know all about my trips to ALDI, or about my occasional, profound sadness as I remember my old friends: bread, pasta, and potatoes. I enjoy them on cheat days, but they are no longer a part of my daily diet.
Why sloppy Keto and not strict, one might ask?
Wouldn't it work better if I was more strict in my attempt?
But I don't trust myself, though, and that's the best, most honest answer I can give. You see, I had a serious eating disorder for years, and part of the disordered mindset included lots of numbers. Numbers on the scale, and obsessing over every solitary ounce gained. Every centimeter. Every inch. Obsession with calories. Fat grams. Portions. Anything numerical that could be a problem, was. And my obsession with the numbers on the scale nearly killed me. That's real talk.
Numbers became very triggering, and this time, I am ignoring the numbers.
I refuse to do that to myself ever again.
So for my own sanity, I am listening to my own body more, cutting out things I know aren't helping me, and I am ignoring the numbers. In fact, I don't even own a scale these days, and refuse to have one in my home.
So I have been doing what's known as "Sloppy Keto" for a few months now. This basically means I limit all the carbs. I've pretty much cut out breads, pasta, sugar, and potatoes. I DO indulge a little once a week for a cheat meal, but that seems to actually kick start my body back into fat burning mode, and it works for me.
I have also been taking LCR Health Active-PK to help my efforts. Active-PK is a revolutionary formula designed to help fight fatigue and abdominal fat so you can enjoy a stronger, slimmer-feeling body. This formula works by using natural compounds to help activate AMPK — which tells your body to stop storing fat and start converting it into clean, usable fuel. This can lead to more energy, fewer cravings, and a slimmer waistline.* This supplement is made with no caffeine, no dairy and no synthetic additives. It is 100% vegetarian, too, and strictly tested for quality and purity at an independent 3rd party facility. Enjoying Active-PK couldn’t be easier. Just take 2 capsules daily with a glass of water, either with food or on an empty stomach.
Does it work? Is Active-PK helping my weight loss? Well, without looking at the numbers on the scale or measuring things.....I'd have to say yes. I feel better. My clothing is looser. In fact, I have had to buy some new clothes to replace some garments that no longer fit. My stomach has always been the most stubborn part of my body and the bane of my existence, but I feel like it's actually shrinking. I've definitely lost inches around my waist, and I have also noticed that my energy level is consistently high. I don't get tired easily, and no longer experience the "afternoon sleepies". So far, so good!
Could I lose more if I were strict about counting every carb and calorie? Would I be more successful if I didn't have a weekly cheat day where I eat a meal that I absolutely, positively shouldn't be eating?
Perhaps. But I am doing what is best for me while still loving myself and realizing my triggers.
