Holiday Reset - Fat Fast day 3

Well, the good news is that I made it through day 3, and the bad news is that the weight shifted up a bit. That being said, I always go up a bit just before my period, which of course is this week, so I will actually have to wait a few days to settle back down to my non-bloated state. On the bright side, my body fat reading came down on the scale.  I know a lot of people complain that their body fat scale is not accurate, but I have to say that when I went to get a DEXA scan done, the body fat reading was within 0.2% of my home scale so I trust it. If you want to know a bit more about DEXA scans, check out the video below.

I ended up at a sushi place, Noka, for dinner, which could be really good for keto if I ate fish and was not allergic to scallops, lobster, shrimp etc.  Although I had a few non-keto eats, I did keep much of my meal keto. I also tried raw beef sushi for the first -and not last- time! I sometimes have a hard time trying new foods, but my friend convinced me that I should at least try it. Seeing as I like my steak bloody and rare, it's not that much of a stretch so I gave it a go and I have to say I like it.

Other keto eats were short ribs, chicken wings, bacon wrapped asparagus and peppers and seaweed salad. The food is always really good here, but the service is a little frustrating. If you order 10 items, you will only get 8 or 9 of them, so we had to ask several times for them to go and get the missing items. This would not bother me so much if it wasn't for the fact that last night's missing items were all keto friendly and I am the only one at the table trying to keep as keto as possible!

So I survived the three days of fat fast, I tested positive for ketones this morning, despite having a few not-keto eats last night, and I think I may try doing another fat fast next month, although maybe not during shark week.
