The following story is about my personal experience. I am not a professional nutritionist or dietitian. If you are interested in the diet, research it first and see if it is right for you. For more info about my journey, follow

I am approaching my final weeks of being on Keto, and I am not sure if I am excited or nervous about it being over. In about one month, I lost 15 pounds but I am at the point where I am experiencing a plateau in my weight loss. For the rest of my time on Keto, I plan on being more strict with the foods I eat because I am used to the diet now. I do not feel like I am on a diet anymore; the food I eat just feels normal now.
My final day on Keto will be Oct. 20. Just because I only committed to two months of Keto does not mean I will go back to my old eating habits. There is no way the amount of carbs I ate before was necessary. I will slowly start adding more fruits and vegetables back that I cannot have on Keto. I do not usually crave bread and pasta anymore. I plan on only eating these types of carbs on occasion and I will still keep most of my meals low carb when I can.
Our next publication will have my final thoughts on the ketogenic diet and if I would do it again. I will be posting more about my experience between publications on Instagram.
