217: Fri-Date | The Bacon, Cheese and Abs Fail

Dec 27, 2019 | Fridate, Podcast

Today’s Topic: My Keto Experiment

Keto Guido’s transformation from a pudgy Italian to the guest host of the Chippendales got me pretty excited about keto. However I sort of overlooked that he eats mostly plants and a little bit of fat here and there. I went all in on the fat and didn’t know what to eat so I ate nuts until my stomach sort of blew up and cheese until I started developing a puffy face and woke up with snot coming out of my nose because all the cheese created a lot of mucus. I felt incredibly full and satiated, but I was getting fat. In fact, I gained 15 pounds in a month. 

So here’s our wrap on what we learned and how I’m eating now.
