My 14-Day Keto Experiment – Keto Diet Day Seven
Seven whole days of keto done! I feel really proud for making it through this week.
At first, I was afraid I’d want to stop after the first week, but I feel completely on board with doing another week of keto.
Read on to see if I stayed within my macros today, lost any weight, or had a bit of a cheat.

How I Feel on Day Seven of Keto
I’ve completed seven days of keto and I’m so glad I decided to try it. Fourteen days doesn’t seem as long as it did when I first started.
I can do this! Even though, frankly, I’m starting to feel a little bored with my food choices. Of course, that leads me to the next topic . . .
I Put Sugar In My Coffee On Keto
Ok. Let’s talk about that coconut sugar in my coffee.
I just wanted something to liven up my morning. As I’ve said before, I miss coconut sugar in my coffee.
I keep waiting for the guilt to hit me, but honestly, I don’t feel guilty about it at all.
It was delicious. It’s crazy how I can taste one teaspoon of sugar in my coffee now when I was regularly using three heaping teaspoons full before. See, once your tastebuds reset any amount of sugar really stands out.
Y’all, that coffee was delicious. Yum!
Restless Leg Syndrome on Keto?
This morning I researched restless leg syndrome and keto, but found few results that link the two. Nevertheless, I definitely had restless legs last night. It affected my sleep.
Since magnesium helps with restless legs, I’ve been spraying on magnesium oil throughout the day. So, here’s to a good night’s sleep tonight.
