This Monday, I’m going Keto! This will be the first time I’ve ever tried. I generally eat Paleoish/low-carbish but I’ve never been very strict about it. I’m definitely a believer in the 80/20 rule. So, a Ketosis diet will be a change.

I decided to try Keto for sheep hunting because I need all the help I can get in lightening up my pack. As much as I want to believe that women can do anything, there are some limitations to what females can do physically. I am about 135 pounds, and it is unreasonable for me to think that I can pack out as much as the average sheep hunter does.
So, I am doing everything I can to lighten my pack and increase my strength.
In addition to the numerous health benefits of Ketosis, I am interested in its weight-reducing aspects. (Check out the health benefits.)

For me, the key to success will be planning ahead. I’m a huge fan of meal planning and batch cooking. I’ve found that meal planning helps me make good decisions about food. It also saves me time and money, and I really enjoy looking for new recipes. That won’t change. After reading the 21 Day Paleo Rest Diet by Mark Sission, I feel like I have even more tools.
HERE ARE SOME OF MY STRATEGIES
Let me know if I can help with strategies that work for you, or with recipes that will have you loving low-carb. I’ll keep you posted on my Keto experience 🙂
