In the GYM!: New Exercise Routine & Ketogenic Dieting

*This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my 100% mine. 

I started 2019 with a goal to eat healthier and exercise daily but, unfortunately, that didn't come to function. At one point in time, I was lifting weights several times a week and I had lost a few pounds. However, everything came to a halt when my grandmother had to placed into a nursing home. Thanks to my an aunt, an uncle, and tons of cousins who refused to help, the task of boxing up my grandmother's belongings from her apartment and moving them to a storage unit came down to my mother and me. During that time, I was exerting myself a bit too much, so I put exercising on pause. It was meant to be a temporary thing but as of today I haven't started up my exercise routine again.

What's holding me back?

Well, thanks to allergies, really bad migraines, depression, and so on and so forth, I've haven't had the desire to diet or exercise. However, I need to start doing something. I've gotten to a point to either I buy bigger clothes or lose weight!

Tomorrow morning, I'll be kicking off a new exercise routine. As of right now, I'm not exactly sure what that routine is going to include. Probably 30 minutes on a stationary bike and some sort of cardio exercise, such as Tae Bo or Core De Fore.

As for eating, I thinking of starting a high-protein ketogenic diet. Over the summer, I watched dozens Youtube videos on ketogenic dieting so I'm wanting to try it out. A ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet. Lowering carbs will put your body in a metabolic state called ketosis. It will make your body turn fat into ketones which supplies energy to the brain. So, basically, it means your body will burn body fat into energy faster.

I normally take at least a multi-vitamin when I'm on a a dieting and exercising program. And that's exactly what I'll be doing when I'm on the ketogenic diet. However, I might have to look into buying a Bhb salts supplement, such as Ketond BioMax.

Ketone salts will increase the amount of ketones in the body, which will aid in burning fat faster. What I like about Ketond BioMax is that it contains goBHB-D™ (D-beta-hydroxybutyrate, Solathin, Acetyl L-Carnitine, L-Leucine, and L-Taurine. It's supposed to be biologically identical to the ketones our body makes naturally.

Ketond BioMax sounds great me!

What are your thoughts on ketogenic dieting?
