Over the last few years, the idea of trying a ketogenic diet and/or intermittent fasting would come up. The right sort of people seemed to be proponents of them, and there seemed to be a lot of science behind both. I also liked some of the perks which included decent tasting meals, a sense of satiety with meals, and cognitive boosts. I have to admit, more and more I feel a bit fuzzy headed and seem more prone to being clumsy. I am sure it is part of the aging process, but I did not like it one bit. What has turned me off to the ketogenic diet is it seems so darn complicated. There is a LOT to learn, and for this to be sustainable it has to be something where I can easily throw together simple meals.
In regards to eating patterns, I am a true hobbit! Let’s just say I was well familiar with the idea of “second breakfast: even before I had read the books, and I am well known for my decedent snack with those who have visited me. I get a headache if I skip a meal.
Combined these would be a gloriously radical change to my approach to eating and this embracing my desire to break the mold here. However, I need to pace myself here and I will start by focusing on the ketogenic diet. Once I am transitioned into that I can explore fasting.
In the meantime I have a lot to learn, with the plan of diving fully into it in a few weeks, after some experimentation and readiness.
