First meal out of ketosis | How does it feel?


Hey guys. So today is my official day I’m going to start the process of getting out of ketosis. So I’m about to go eat some frozen yogurt. It’s going to kick me out. I’ll probably be kicked out for a few weeks and then I will document getting back into it when my, um blood ketone monitor gets in. Hey guys! So, I just finished my first [brake check]… i just finished my first meal that i had getting out of ketosis. My frozen yogurt. I was a little nervous eating it because I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t know if it was going to make me feel really sick, and when I went out of ketosis during the holidays, I just felt really crappy. So I was a little nervous about feeling, um kind of rundown and tired. But so far so good. I don’t feel too bad. The frozen yogurt, it’s not as sweet as some desserts that you can have. So it was, you know, underwhelming as far as my expectations. It wasn’t like that amazing or anything. I i was eating it and honestly I feel like a lot of the stuff that I make on keto as a dessert tastes just as good as that did. So I think that’s really interesting that I felt that way. I feel my insulin spiking a little bit now, hahaha, stop, haha, stop. Um, I feel my insuling spiking a little bit now, and… hey guys so I just woke up. That frozen yogurt totally made me crash. This is what used to always happen to me before I got on the ketogenic diet. And I could not figure it out for the longest. But anything that makes my insulin and my blood sugar spike up like this, it usually will put me to sleep. So I literally I came home and crashed. fell asleep so quickly before I even knew what was happening to me. So I just woke up. took a nap for like a couple of hours i think. This is what I was really concerned about as far as getting out of ketosis. I know it’s going to affect my energy levels and just having that one little small thing of frozen yogurt did this to me. So I just, it’s the part I’m not looking forward to, is that I’m going to be falling asleep and crashing like this. And my chronic fatigue is gonna be flaring up from getting out of ketosis. But it’s all in the name of science so that i can show you guys how it affects me. Hopefully it will be worth it in the end, and I’m looking forward to definitely getting back into ketosis and to testing my blood ketone levels, and all that jazz. Once i get there again. I just wanted to get out before my ketone monitor gets here so that I can show you guys from the beginning what it’s like to get into ketosis, and test my ketone levels as I’m getting back in. So that you guys can see the difference and how you can tell if you’re in ketosis if you’re using a ketone monitor as well as how different foods are going to be affecting my ketone levels. So I’m looking forward to the whole project. It’s just going to be kind of um. I’m just going to be really low energy while I’m out of ketosis. But, you know, it’s to be expected. The frozen yogurt. it was, it tasted ok. I remember I used to eat frozen yogurt alot before i was on the ketogenic diet. and I remember just thinking it was the best thing in the world. but after eating it today , it was good but it really didn’t taste any better than any of my keto friendly desert. So it was kind of surprising and underwhelming at the same time. I remember thinking right after is that it wasn’t that bad. and I didn’t feel, you know a huge insulin spike but it just kind of hit me all at once after i had left the restaurant. and yeah, before you know it i was just too tired to stay awake. But anyways just wanted to share. Again it’s my first day getting out of ketosis while I’m waiting for my blood monitor to arrive. and I’ll kind of document this whole process of what i’m eating while I’m out of ketosis if you guys want to see that. and I’m looking forward to getting back into ketosis and I’ll document that whole process as well. But thank you guys so much for watching. I’m gonna clean up a little bit. I just got back from my company retreat from my “real job” I guess as a business development manager. So my company was nice enough to send the entire company to Four Seasons at Ko’olina so we spent the weekend there. Just got back so i’m pretty tired from the weekend. We did a lot of activity while we were there. And so also my place is kind of a mess because usually I clean up my condo over the weekend and I didn’t get a chance to do that. So I’m just gonna clean up a little bit, run a few errands. do a few chores before i go to bed and then it is back to work tomorrow. Don’t forget to subscribe if you haven’t already to see me documenting my ketosis experiment, If you watch my previous video then you can see all the details as far as what i’m doing. But subscribe to see my future videos on this and give me a thumbs up if you liked this series and i will see you next time. Thank you so much for watching. Bye everyone!

  1. I'm confused…are you doing this now or did you do it last year? It says 2016. Anywho, I'm glad to see its not just me that falls asleep shortly after eating something non-keto. I feel so groggy after waking and have bowel issues for a couple days, as well. Chronic fatigue and IBS explained.

    So, why did you decide to do this experiment? To find out what foods affect you the worst? To see how your body copes with different carbs?

  2. Wow really cool experiment 😊 I would like to ask you about dairy on keto-many people try to avoid it etc. Would you make a video about dairy or check if it influances nlood sugar etc ?

  3. Hi Ester, you are so brave to do this experiment. I hope it won't be rough getting back into keto. I'm looking forward to your results. ~ Christine

  4. Hi Ester, are you eating slow digesting carbs? From what I am seeing ,you are eating a lot of junk carbs. I would feel sluggish and tired to. Throwing slower digesting carbs would give us a good look into being in ketosis. You would crash doing faster, sugary carbs. To be honest in the process ,you should do slower digesting carbs, not just fast digesting carbs. Thank you for this.😊
