My 14-Day Keto Experiment – Keto Diet Day Fourteen
Today is the last day of my two week keto reset. I made it! And, it felt better than I thought it would.
I expected to feel hungry and tired. Maybe a little cranky most days, too. But, I felt great after the first few days.
Read on to see my macros and food diary for today and my final thoughts about my two week keto reset. Also, find out my next step in my weight loss journey.

As I predicted yesterday, my weight stayed the same. I feel content with my overall weight loss. My plan includes losing no more than a pound a week over the next year. In reality, I think my weight loss will be less than a pound a week. I want sustainable weight loss, not rapid loss.

How I Feel on Day Fourteen of Keto
I’m happy to be done with my two week keto reset. As I’ve already said in other posts, I’m glad I did it, but I’m glad it’s over.
I hate tracking my macros. Tracking macros bores me and takes up precious time that I could use for other things – like work or working out.
However, I’m glad to know what low carb feels like. Now I have something to base my food choices on going forward.
My New Weight Loss Plan
I still feel motivated to continue my weight loss. As I’ve said, I won’t be as strict as keto, but I will continue with a low carb diet.
I’ve realized that I don’t need three meals a day to be healthy. In fact, two meals a day is sometimes a lot.
Intermittent fasting remains a part of my life, but I’ve tossed fussing over fat grams and calories right out the window.
Will I Do Keto Again?
Yes, I believe I’ll do keto again for a week or two at a time. Afterall, it provided me with an awesome reset. In addition, it jump started my weight loss.
I believe there may be times after holidays or stressful periods when I need to get myself back on track. I think keto is a great way to give my diet a healthy reset.
