With all the talk about the Keto diet, I’m sure you’ve heard of it. Bloggers, YouTubers and your everyday friends are trying this new diet and are finding success and great results.
I love a good diet with a great success story, trust me I’ve tried my own and they’ve worked (see Paleo) , but the Keto diet is one that I KNOW will be a struggle for me if I ever wanted to try.
There are certain things that you absolutely cannot eat on this diet. These include bread, pasta, donuts, candy and some fruits.
Here’s what I like.
I love french fries. If I could, I would marry french fries okay? I eat them at least once a week. I’m actually on the hunt for the perfect french fry. Right now, Five Guys is winning, but then again I think I should actually go out more and try french fries from other restaurants and states.
If I were to get on the Keto diet, I would have to give up french fries because potatoes are on the list of foods you shouldn’t eat. First no.
When I saw pasta on the list, I promise you I yelled WHAT! I don’t eat pasta nearly as often as I used to, but when I want it….I want it. The other day, I was craving some sort of pasta dish with spinach and shrimp. And you know what? I went right home after work and got to it. It was delicious by the way. My Pinterest foodie board is about 60 percent pasta dishes.
I enjoy an occasional Snickers bar, Almond Joy and Hershey’s Bar with Almonds. I’m not a candy addict in any way, shape or form, but sometimes it’s good to have that rush of sugar.
I was in shock when I saw this on the list, so I decided to do more research behind this. I found that a lot of the fruit that I love and often eat has carbs in it and that’s why it’s frowned upon for this diet.
Sometimes I eat fruit as an alternative to eating candy. I can curb my sugar craving and feel refreshed at the same time.
Listen honey, this was the FINAL straw. I love my wine and nobody can take me away from wine. When I saw this on the list, I definitely knew that it was not meant to be.
Tell me your thoughts. Are you willing to try the Keto diet? Are you currently trying it? Are you like me and love too many of the restricted foods to give it a try? Comment below.
