I am bloated. I am doing the Keto diet. It is hard. Bread is so good. It tempts me everyday. I have come up with a solution. Actually, I stole an idea from another diet and am not convinced it is a solution at all. I have a cheat day on Sunday. A couple of Sundays ago, I cheated the entire day. Things got nutty. I ate donuts before I was fully awake and downed Reese’s as I was falling asleep.
I tried to be more reasonable. I decided to limit my cheating to afternoon. Also, I had to eat a sensible and nutritious breakfast. Yesterday at about 1pm, I started cheating. By the end of the day, I consumed more than 7,000 calories and over 1,000 grams of carbohydrates. The rest of the week, my carb limit is 20 grams per day.
I suppose it is no wonder that I feel sluggish. I know that I did some eating to make myself feel better emotionally. I always find that sad. I know food soothes hence the term “comfort food”, but I like to think I’m better than that. I’m not. I get sad and fill my sad hole with sweets and bread.
I was upset because of a silly interaction with my wife. I also had a disappointing weekend of comedy. I performed for a total of 1 minute.
