I decided it’s time to get brutally honest and talk about why eating keto is actually the suckiest thing ever.

It’s time I came clean and told you the truth.

There are certain hardships I am having to put up with and I think you deserve to know what these are.

As such I am providing 7 pieces of evidence to show exactly why eating keto sucks:

 Exhibit 1

I’ve got so much more energy now that there is no excuse for not getting the housework done. Not only this, I have to deal with being on top of my work, the kid’s stuff, birthdays, christmas’s and generally being in control of my life.

Exhibit 2

Now that I’m not thinking about food all the time I have to use my brain space for other things, such as having fun with the kids, how I can give back and help other people and where I’d like to go on holiday.

Exhibit 3

Now that I’m not 30lbs overweight anymore I’ve had to get used to enjoying clothes shopping again (what a drag).

Exhibit 4

I can’t spend money on expensive face powder and foundation cover-up for my skin anymore because I don’t need it. I also occasionally have to put up with comments about looking ‘well’ and looking ‘great’. pffffft.

Exhibit 5

I have to get up early every morning and have some ‘me’ time before the rest of the house wakes up because I sleep so much better and need less of it. This results in me having nice and pleasant mornings with the children before they go to school, so they are also affected by this.

Exhibit 6

Day in day out I have to enjoy my food because it’s so delicious. (Please don’t underestimate the importance of this one, it happens up to three times a day and sometimes more).

Exhibit 7

Every time I wake up I just know I’m going to have to deal with THAT feeling again. (The one where you feel like life is full of possibilities because you are finally free from food addiction).

In short, I have become a different person and my life has improved immeasurably.

Man, I just don’t know why I bother. 😉

  1. Love it! I’ve been telling others that I finally feel liberated. I no longer have to spend my days exerting self-control or trying to impose will-power over my cravings. I simply don’t have them any more! And days like today where I did crave some carbs (something I haven’t done in weeks) I allowed myself to have them & realized I had only eaten 5 grams carbs all day. It’s okay to listen to my body!

    1. Fantastic Jeanie, yes the liberation is what it’s all about for me! Thanks so much for commenting!

  2. What a great read! My coworkers keep telling me I look great, but “how can you give up that good stuff to eat?” I reply with, I gave up feeling like crap all the time!

  3. Thanks so much for your insightful write up about keto. I have terrible acne. It started in my teen age into my early 30s now. I have tried so many things and it never gets better. The worst hit are are my face, chest, below my jaw and my back. It also leaves terrible black spots. I am contemplating giving keto a try. But my problem is I don’t want to lose weight. I’mean okay with my size. Pls what do you advise. Thanks

  4. Bless you.. I’m into my third day in ketosis already 🙂 Even before I came on to this site I was only saying how happy and confident I feel with this new eating style… don’t feel deprived.. so excited.. and u have confirmed it .. well done you too and everyone else x

  5. This is wonderful! I just wish, as a psychologist, that people would stop “addictionizing” everything. We are not free from “food addiction.” We’re free from planned, advertised food CONFUSION. What’s sold to us as the healthy way of eating is a big lie. Therefore, we’re not “addicted” to anything. We’re purposely led in a dangerous direction. Now that we know better, we live better. It’s a s simple as that.
