She Did The Keto Meal Plan For 17 Days, And These Have Been The Results


The keto meal plan helps you lose weight up to 10 times more than with other diets and without suffering or starving yourself. It consists of following a low carbohydrate intake (5-20%, or 20-50 g of total carbohydrates) and high in healthy fats (up to 75% in total). The goal is for the body to enter a state known as ketosis, by which fat reserves are converted to ketones, which feed the muscles and brain instead of carbohydrates. All this increases fat burning and weight loss. It has many detractors but also many defenders. In recent years it has become very famous because those who follow lose weight much faster than with a traditional diet.

There are many people who have already tried it, with more or less success. One of the last people who has dared has been the media personal trainer Jen Widerstrom. She started the keto diet "as a joke", but was impressed with the results. The young woman has told in her Instagram profile and on the web ' Shape ' the whole process of the 17 days that she has followed her.

What I did was eliminate the bad from my regimen and reward my body with quality vegetables and meats and fats
At first, she was not convinced about doing this regimen, since she thought it was a passing fad, and she felt that she knew enough about nutrition to eat well on her own. But when he promised a friend he would try it and took a picture of "day 1" for accountability, Widerstrom realized he needed the diet.
Day 1 of the diet. 

"There has been a lot of stress in my life in the last six months: a move, a new job, a breakup, health problems, I've had a lot of things at stake, and I do not think I realized that I was falling into very little habits. healthy to cope with the rhythm, such as drinking more or taking caloric (and comforting) food, "he writes. Suddenly he took one look at the photos that had just been done and was perplexed: "Wait, this is not my body," he says. It was what made him decide to start the diet.

I was not fat, but I wanted to be better
It's obvious that Widerstrom was not overweight, and she recognizes it herself, but she did not feel comfortable in her body. "It's not that I think I'm fat, but I know my body and that it was not."
Day 5 of the diet.

Mind you, she did not completely discard the sugar in her diet. "It was not a hundred percent keto diet, it included foods with natural sugar, I knew I needed a little, and that's just what kept me on track," he says. "And I have to confess that grape has never tasted better," he adds.

He did not do it at face value
At the end of those 17 days, Widerstrom was "surprised" by the difference in his body, but he believes it had more to do with better nutrition than the keto diet.

"I can not say with certainty that I went into ketogenesis, so I can not give credit to the keto diet, because I think I did not get to that point," Widerstrom says. "Ketosis is achieved with a lot of time, what I did, I think, was to eliminate the bad from my regimen and reward my body with quality vegetables and meats and fats."
Day 11 of the diet.

"Discipline is one of the most difficult parts to follow keto, but it is also one of the biggest principles of the diet, I knew what was allowed and I liked having that clear limit." In the ketogenic regimes, it is perfectly indicated what can be eaten and what can not be eaten. A normal day would be for example a breakfast consisting of eggs and smoked salmon, tuna salad with cheese for lunch, and meat and avocado for dinner.

If you are not prepared to stop eating cereals, bread, fruit, vegetables or sugars for a long period of time, this regime is not for you

However, in general, she believes that it can be an effective diet for some people, but not for everyone (including her). The nutritionist Susie Burrell thinks the same, that the keto is not for everyone: "If you are not prepared to stop eating cereals, bread, fruit, vegetables or sugars for a long period of time, this regime is not for you".
Day 17 of the diet. 

"But I will keep what I said at the beginning: the same model does not work for everyone, you have to do what works for your body," emphasizes Widerstrom.

"I really do not like to advocate for nutrition programs that are not sustainable for the life of the person who follows them, some people may live in that extreme, but I'm not made for that, so I decided not to continue doing it. Go ahead and listen to how your body responds."
